What a wonderful outdoor adventure! It was exciting, fun, relaxing with a good dose of local colour and flavours. I felt safe, enlightened and happy and it was a pleasure to travel with the whole group. I loved every minute of our journey and would rave to anyone that would listen about our exceptional experience with G Adventures.

My two week holiday felt like it lasted a year. This is the highest measure of success I cannot believe how many different experiences and amazing memories I have. The trip content was excellent. It was brilliant that it was so varied and active. I liked having a chance to see ruins, be outdoors, camp, canoe, snorkel and hike. The add on options were excellent, and I was impressed with the guide, and local guides available.

This was my first group tour. I chose it solely for the convenience of having someone else make the arrangements as I was too busy to plan the trip and it covered much of what I wanted to see. However, I now realize that I got much more out of the trip than I would have if I had gone by myself. The rapport Adam had built up with local people meant that we got to see a lot more of Belize and talk a lot more to locals rather than just hang out with other travelers. I am recommending the trip to my friends and am much more likely to consider a tour in the future.
