G Adventures Iguassu & Beyond Reviews

Iguassu and Beyond is a Fantastic Tour

I've completed trips with other tour companies in various places around the world, but this was my first with G Adventures tour I can't recommend it enough. Whilst a large part of the experience of group tours is dependent on your fellow travellers, you absolutely cannot over estimate the organisation, itinerary and expertise of the company you use and their representative, and G were outstanding on all parts for this tour. Our CEO, Mariana, was brilliant - knowledgeable, experienced, yet fun and friendly and really joined in and pulled the group together. Though this was quite a short tour, it took in some absolutely amazing stops between Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, and importantly, drew on the experience of the company to take in some more local and off the beaten track sites. Don't think twice about using G :-)
