    3.5 - Good

    Good, low cost tour that included destinations of historical significance and destinations with fun leisure and recreational activities. The pace of travel was a little exhausting at times with much time spent on buses or boats as we moved from place to place at a rapid pace.
    Intrepid Travel commented on this review
    Hi George, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. Sounds like you had a fun, if somewhat fast, journey through Central America! We hope to see you on another trip with us again soon – you deserve to treat yourself to a more leisurely trip next time, how about a sailing trip? :) Kind regards, Intrepid

    4.5 - Excellent

    Great trip, amazing scenery. Some excellent options of extras available, at a cost. Guide Pablo one of the best. Tour suitable for mixed ages. Downside ~ more time in Guatemala would have been an advantage.

    4.5 - Excellent

    It was a fantastic trip, great itinerary, I picked this over other tour companies because it included El Salvador. There is a good blend of different places. I advise arriving in Antigua Guatemala 1 or 2 days early (or more time!) so you can explore this beautiful city. There are not many inclusions in this trip, prepare to bring $300-$500 extra money if you want to do the optional activities on offer - they are worth it and are fantastic. Also need extra money for meals as none are included. The hotels are comfortable and the transport was excellent. The guide helps make the border crossings easy and helps organise the excursions. I would travel with Intrepid again.
