    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.

    Hi Aoife, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! Receiving feedback from our passengers is essential as it helps us to know where we’re meeting or hopefully even exceeding expectations. We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the second half of the trip as much as the first; we would love an opportunity to more fully understand your experience, so please feel free to contact our Customer Relations team if you would like to give us any further feedback: Thanks again and we hope to see you on another trip with us soon! Kind regards, Geckos
