Becky was brilliantly organised. All travel - chicken buses, private buses, ferries, boats, flights - everything went without a hitch. Good briefings about locations. Reasonable hotels (except Cancun city). She had a large and very disparate group which she managed with poise and charm. A lovely cheery girl.”
The tour and our guide were FANTASTIC. I have traveled around the world and this was one of my best tours ever! I understand that you have an award for the best tour guide and Lisa gets my vote. Every restaurant she chose (and I am a picky eater) and every excursion she told us about was great. Thank you so much for a wonderful needed holiday and the next time I travel with a tour I would definitely look into your company first. Happy holidays!”
Becky has by far been the best tour guide l've had so far!! She made everything so ready and a truly wonderful experience!! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone ❤️”
