“Mary, the CEO was great! She took very good care of us and kept the group together. Met some great people on the tour. Visited few communities on one of the days and it is great to see the local tradition as well as what G adventures are doing to help these communities. My trip also included the Lares trek which was guided by Jean Pierre who is a legend and his co assistant, Marco who was very friendly and helpful. They both made this trek memorable.”
