Mark "My experience was amazing!! I enjoyed every minute of it and the people that were on the trek really added to the experience. The main issue I had is that the tour guide was not the best. A really nice guy, but he seemed to lack in English and an ability to be able to explain things.

    Though Paulo appears to be a nice person, I question why he is a senior guide. He had no extra water, no water purification tablets, no medicine and no concern for our safety. He left 7 out of 8 of us to hike for an hour by ourselves as the sun was going down the 2nd day of our trek. There were 2 sick people that he didn't check on- one of which was dizzy and short of breath the entire time. 2 other people rode donkeys half way up to the steepest part of the trek when they should have never been there in the first place. One of them was put on oxygen and the junior guide made sure that he got down safely. I can honestly say I would ask for my money back if I thought you would give it. I'm horrified that you would have a guide on staff that doesn't look after the safety of those traveling with him. The sun went down by the time we made it to camp on day 2 and a horseman had to shine his phone over the trail so we could find it. Someone could have been seriously injured. I wouldn't recommend your company to anyone at this point- especially anyone traveling by themselves.

    Thanks for taking the time to let us know of this. Oh boy - what you have described is quite shocking. Safety is an absolute priority for us, and this falls very far short of what we expect. Please connect with us at customersolutions@gadventures.com and we will be happy to look into this further.

    Wow! What a trip. Eddie (Edison Romero) and JC (Jeiko Cuenco) were entertaining, well informed and very engaged with the whole tour. They seemed invested in our success and they really bonded with the group. Food was unreal! The chefs outdid themselves in their meals. Also accommodating for people with dietary restrictions. I never went hungry! The trek itself was breathtaking (sometimes literally). The views were stunning and the trails were great. Felt like something out of a movie. Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat!

    Lares Trek 04/2016. I had the best trip of my life thanks to Rumi and Team 15. The porters did a great job and the campsites were set up very well. Rumi was a fantastic gudie . Chef cooked delicious meals. Thank You Krzysztof Pawelek.
