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... Read more

    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.

    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.

      It was really easy to book (and the best price I've found anywhere). The customer service is great, everything can be organised through the portal once you've booked which is clear and convenient.
