The trip was an amazing, perception altering, whirlwind tour through Mexico. I loved it. With G Adventures handling all the travel details, the Roam trip only left me to worry about what fun thing I was going to do next.

I had a great time, although being able to speak Spanish really helped in terms of getting around the places once we got there. High points: I really liked Oaxaca, wish we had more time there, and Uxmal. It was a nice trip and I met a lot of great people.

Overall it was great. We had a fantastic time seeing lots of interesting things. The Tour leader was very helpful and friendly. The local guides were also good- esp. the very informative and friendly Felix in Mexico City and learned Ernesto in Palenque. The arrangements for travel and accommodation were very good.

It was a great trip, a wonderful mix of cities, landscapes, weather, food and people. All in all a great introduction to Mexico, especially since it was my visit to the country. The roam format was perfect because it allowed me to choose activities and my daily schedule, while still allowing me not to have to worry about travel and hotel bookings during the trip.

The trip ran smoothly and efficiently ... and was a lot of fun. The places we visited were interesting with a good mix of activities available. Good accommodation. Highlights were Palenque, visit to Chamula (from San Cristobal) and horse-drawn "track" trucks outside Merida. Thanks to G Adventures and our tour leader for a fantastic and unforgettable holiday!

Fantastic experience in Mexico, with ample time to explore the numerous Mayan sites. Trip was well-organized and planned, accomodations were generally satisfactory, central and comfortable, with particularly memorable ones like the El Panchen in Palenque, and Rana Cansada in Playa del Carmen . OFellow-travellers were excellent company as well. The programme was sufficiently flexible for group or individual activities, as preferred. High points - definitely the visit to Palenque.

I was impressed with the itinerary of this tour and with the proficiency, knowledge, indefatigable energy, and enthusiasm of our group leader, Blaine Clark. With a wide age range from early 20's to late 60's (the latter is where my husband and I belong), she was able to help us all with our needs and problems. Our friends are probably tired of us continuing to rave about this trip, G Adventures, and Blaine but it can never be said enough. Thank you.

From start to finish the Mexico Ancient Civilisations adventure was a brilliant experience. It was very well organised and our leader, Pedro, made the trip so enjoyable and fun. Thanks for the dancing lessons! I could not have wished for a better group dynamic to travel with and share the memories. I recommend G Adventures and this trip to everyone with a sense of adventure.

It was all in all a wonderfull trip. We got to see a lot of things we would not have seen on our own, and Leah did a great job as our tour leader. Not only did we have 2 wonderful weeks, but it has helped us on our trip after we left the group. We got to see the best of Mexico and we got to meet a lot of great people we never would have met on our own. It turned out to be a memory of a lifetime. My high point on this trip was how we got the oppertunity to see how the mexican really lives. Worth it!

I enjoyed the trip, and found it had been accurately represented in your promotional material. The tour leader was very good at all logistics, cheerful, good with language, etc. Monte Alban early in the morning, having gone there with one other group member by public bus and the last 4 km on foot; the architectural beauty of Puebla; the charm of all the zocolos; the pleasing G Adventures combo of overall structure but lots of time to hive off alone or in subgroups as we wished; snorkelling in the limestone canotes outside Playa del Carmen...

The trip of Mexico was such good fun. I had no idea what to expect Mexico to be like but i loved it. I was dubious about doing a tour as i tend to prefer independant travel but its an excellent way to see a lot of a country in a short time. Although i did feel a bit rushed at times, id have loved to have stayed longer in San Cristobal. But id probably have never left so the tour was a good thing!

I think this tour is the best thing I have ever done, travel wise. I had learned a bit about Mexican/Meso-American culture at University, so I wanted to go and see it, but was a bit nervous about venturing alone. This tour allowed me to see what I wanted to see and marvel at the greatness of these ancient civilizations

It was a great trip, a wonderful mix of cities, landscapes, weather, food and people. All in all a great introduction to Mexico, especially since it was my visit to the country. The roam format was perfect because it allowed me to choose activities and my daily schedule, while still allowing me not to have to worry about travel and hotel bookings during the trip.

The ease of travelling with G Adventures was good, we didnt have to organise buses/taxis etc but if we wanted to leave at a different time our tour leader could organise that. It was also nice to meet new people and share the experience with them.

The trip was awesome. There was about the right amount of travel time, any more would have been a bit much. My highlights were horse riding in San Cristobal to the local villages and swimming in the cenotes in Merida.

Fantastic! Excellent tour guide. Structure of trip and what it covered was great and going from Mexico City to Playa del Carmen was good - I would imagine it to be much better than the other way around.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. The people I travelled with were nice and friendly. I just wished I knew some Spanish so I could interact with the locals.

I enjoyed this trip as it gave me a real taste of Mexico and also the different regions, we were able to get up close to the culture and really experience it in every aspect.

I just got back from the 2 week Ancient Mexico Civilisations trip and it wasn't long enough! It was amazing - the country, the people and our tour leader (Alex) made the experience so very memorable it will be a hard trip to top! Thank you!

It was fantastic. Mexico City was much more interesting than we thought it would be. Our tour leader (Jemise) went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our trip as much as possible. All the day trips were definitely worth it. The cenotes were a high point.

I had a great time in Mexico, the ruins were amazing and we got to see so many unique things. I went on my honeymoon and my husband was sick the whole time, but we still had a great time and Jemise was a wonderful leader and really made all the difference for us.

The trip was fantastic. Our tour leader Ben was very helpful, down to earth and approachable. As well as taking us to the standard sites, he organised for us to see some cenotes which are not particularly touristy. This was a very good change from the other events, which were also very very enjoyable!!!!!

Really enjoyed the trip. Was nervous at first since I was travelling alone but the group was very welcoming. Appreciated the small size of the group and good organisation by the tour leader. Although basic the hotels were all clean and better than I was expecting, as were the bus transfers. The tour allowed us to see a wide variety of places that would have been impossible if travelling alone. Would definitely recommend it.

Overall I think the trip went well. It was a unique experience that I might consider doing again. A high point of the tour was our stay in Palenque. The guide our tour leader got for the ruins and jungle walk was outstanding.
