Review for another G Adventures tour
“Physically not easy at times (quite a bit of hiking and walking around with your backpack in the heat, and comfort levels are quite low both in overnight trains and hotels) but definitely rewarding. Would definitely recommend it to others.”

“What can I say, we had a really great tour to Sri Lanka. Extremely relaxing, cosy and just great to be on the water. Highly recommend it.”

Yamini's review for another G Adventures tour
“Overall it was a good to get a quick experience of Colombia but on certain days it was too much free time and on certain days very rushed. Spending two free afternoons on at Armenia was a total waste of time. Also, we could have taken an early morning flight from Medellin to Cartagena instead of afternoon flight which just wasted half a day. On the whole nearly 1.5 days wasted. Otherwise it was good.”
