Geoff's review for another Explore tour
“Yes. This area appears ideal for a winter cycling break and would like to do another next year. Alex does a trip to Granada I believe. We also had a brilliant group and all seemed keen to return.”

“As mentioned previously this was an ambitious itinerary. Chris the leader made it work, so I feel very grateful to him for this. It was just brilliant to see 3 very different countries in Central America on 2 wheels on a two week trip. ”
