Thank you for arranging such an exceptionally good tour

We arrived home on Sunday 5 July after a fantastic 2 weeks in Mexico.The first week’s tour you arranged for us went like a dream. All the Hotels were excellent and our guide was spot on, very informative and flexible in terms of our requirements. What can be said about the sites we visited, they all had something different and special associated with them. For example we visited Chichen Itza first thing in the morning, it was cooler, almost devoid of other people and a wonderful experience.Thank you for arranging such an exceptionally good tour We will definitely be back to use you again

This was an A+ trip

The trip was absolutely awesome! The sights, the people and especially the guides were great. Getting on and off the boats on the Madre de dios in the jungle was not easy, one slip and there you are in the water! Our guide was so sweet as he took my arm and led me on the boat. You did a wonderful job with the itinerary even though we had to get up at 5:30 or 6 am to begin another adventure!!! Food was excellent and even though we were told not to eat fresh fruit – we did anyway! This was an A+ trip. Again, thank you so much for this wonderful trip.
