  • Epic Mexico to Costa Rica reviewer 1
    Written on October 27, 2017
    4.0 - Good

    I had a good opinion of Geckos until they didn't follow up on feedback that one of the guides was making highly inappropriate comments. I assumed they'd be horrified and get in touch to find out what happened but it's been 2 months now. The guide made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature to every woman in the group; about 10/12 on the tour were women. The most sexually explicit comments were directed at me, even after I told him it was inappropriate. It made the last few days of the tour very uncomfortable because you can't really avoid your guide. It was especially stressful at meals, trying to make sure I didn't end up beside him. When he realised I wasn't happy with him he sulked for days and kept asking why I wasn't his friend anymore. Not fun... Geckos' lack of response suggests to me that this must not be uncommon behaviour for guides. Also the fact that the guide was so blatant and targeted literally every woman suggests that he didn't expect the company to take complaints seriously.

    4.5 - Excellent

    This tour is a combination of two other tours. First three week section of the tour was brilliant; great places, very knowledgeable guide, great activities. The last two weeks in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Costa Rica were boring by comparison. If we spent two days in a place often there were only enough activities to fill one day. In places where there were options they often weren't appealing enough for anyone else in the group to want to do them, meaning it was do it alone or don't do it. I thoroughly recommend the first section of the tour but I don't recommend the second part.
