G Adventures Buenos Aires to Lima Adventure Reviews


I was so so happy with my G adventure experience and prior to booking I had always done independent travel. My room mate and I hit it off instantly and the organisation was fantastic. Our guide Renzo really looked after the group and the shining moment for me was when I lost my passport in Peru the day we were crossing the border to Bolivia the group had to leave me behind but G sent a rep to me straight away who helped and looked after me and they managed to locate my passport at our home stay so I could travel the following day and rejoin everyone. I can’t big them up enough. The only downside is now I’m 40 I would love to do more with them but I’m out of the age range
