Gina was an absolutely fantastic tour leader - she was energetic, fun-loving, extremely passionate about her job and the countries we visited and could not have done more to make sure we all had a great time.

I made friends of similar age on this tour and there was an excellent mixture of beaches, socialising, history and culture incorporated into this tour. I was able to get a real feel for the countries I visited and the three countries on this tour could not have been more varied which made it all the more adventurous. The hotels were lovely - often with pools and rooms to a high standard.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a better idea of Central America as these are three fascinating, different and beautiful countries with an organised tour leader and excellent customer service directly from OnTheGo. ”
