“Trip notes aren’t accurate (e.g. they say a toilet tent will be taken, but there wasn’t one).”

“Value for money only satisfactory because almost no meals were included so that added considerable cost to the headline brochure price. Why were no breakfasts included? Many other guests in the Mexico City hotel were there on B&B basis - why not us?
Lots of great things about this trip: Day of the Dead in Oaxaca was amazing! Loads of different pre-Hispanic sites (and good historical commentary), fascinating opportunities to experience indigenous communities (the visit to San Juan Chamula in San Cristóbal was utterly unique and a real high spot), chances to buy high quality textiles made by local people, variety of accommodation including the Frontera lodge which we accessed by riverboat. ”
