First small group tour experience - SOLD! December 2014

G Adventures Company Reviews

This was my first small group tour package experience and it was amazing. I was converted to the benefits of traveling with a knowledgable guide and a small group of fun adventurous souls. My first trip with G Adventures, they were called G.A.P. at the time, was a 2 week trip to Peru including hiking the inca trail to Machu Pichu, Amazon rainforest, and Lake Titicaca where I did a homestay on an island for a few days with a native family. The entire experience was incredible - high value for the money, low stress, no planning, and amazing memories. Thanks G! Read more

Japan's Cultural Treasures

Our guide and group were wonderful. Most of the sites visited fascinating and worth it. I especially loved the visit with the monk and the Hakone Outdoor Art Museum.

It broke my heart that the one day in Tokyo was such a waste of time. Please, taking us to a mediocre mall and a car exhibit, what were you thinking? There should of been two days allotted to that fabulous city to see the real sites. Also, I am an adult and making sushi for four year old was a huge insult and should be skipped at all costs. Also I believe that the trip to Nari should be included as part of the trip and not an optional tour.

Except for breakfasts, the food was cafeteria grade at best and repetitive. You could do better. The best food was that which we picked ourselves.

I would never recommend going in cherry blossom time. There were 80 buses lined up to get into the outdoor sites. Buy a postcard and put it on your wall, or better yet, visit Washington DC. I would recommend this trip if modifications were made.

Interesting overview of China's highlights April 2018

4.0

Imperial China & Yangtze River Cruise

This trip covered many of the highlights of China from the Great Wall to
Shanghai and did it very well. Although it was rated as 'leisurely' it was
very busy and perhaps Exodus could introduce a new range of ratings to
reflect how busy they are as well as the physical effort required.

China is an interesting country going through massive change and
urbanisation, I had not expected the huge amount of building work and high
rise blocks built and being built and the sheer enormity of the cities
visited.
I particularly enjoyed the visit to the Panda Breeding Programme in Chengdu
and seeing the baby pandas -such a conservation success story.


The leader Alan - Liu Bin was excellent, my only criticism was that he only
seemed to have one speed which was fast, I prefer to amble and take in my
surroundings particularly in a country with a different culture and this was
not possible when trying to keep up with Alan.
Alan gave us a very interesting and informative session on China's take on
disputed territories which presented a different viewpoint from that we have
been given in the West.
Alan was very organised and full of information, he worked constantly but
still maintained a good sense of humour.


If you are not happy to use squat toilets I found that the disabled cubicle
usually contained a 'potty' style.
Coffee was not generally provided in hotel rooms so some sachets are useful.


Hotels in China do not provide maps, I found this very frustrating and feel
that Exodus should provide maps of the area around the hotels used with
information of suggested places to eat/drink and transport options to places
of interest, it is not possible to print these before departure as hotels are
not notified until arrival. As a consequence of the lack of maps I do not
feel that I had an overview of the cities visited (spatial awareness).

I found the food pretty boring, as the only non-meat eater I found that meat
dishes were served first (a cultural norm) and often sat with just a couple
to veg dumplings while the rest of the group tucked in, when the vegetables
(and rice) eventually arrived they were usually rather bland and boring and
the rest of the group were nearly finished eating. I would have welcomed the
opportunity to pick a dish for myself from the menu. The much vaunted
Sichaun Hot Pot was rubbish for me as the spicy part contains ox fat so I
could not cook my food there and just had to use the boring unspicy broth.

Three nights on trains was too many and Exodus should look at tweaking the
itinerary as there was some wasted time waiting for trains and also when we
go on the boat.

Overall a very good enjoyable trip - I found China interesting and am very
pleased I chose this trip as it gave a great overview.

Happy with the Kyrgyzstan guide January 2017

Intrepid Company Reviews

The trip was predominantly long days of driving without actually experiencing the countries we visited. For example Issy-Kul lake was merely a sliver of blue on the horizon, we didn't make a short stop or even get a close enough look. Or another day we drove for the entire day only to arrive in time for dinner and bed before leaving again in the morning without spending anytime exploring this area. These disappointments may have been avoided by leaving much earlier in the morning. I think most people on this trip would not have minded leaving significantly earlier if it meant we actually had time to visit the sites detailed in the trip notes

Also whilst I was aware that I was visiting cultures which had meat heavy diets and that vegetarian meals would be difficult to come by, the guide in Kyrgyzstan went out of her way to try and find myself and the other 2 vegetarians foods, often taking at length with the restaurant to organise a meal. However it felt like our guide in Uzbekistan just took us to restaurants he always took his groups without researching whether there were other options within the location we had stopped at. It felt like a great deal of the trip he was on autopilot, just running the trip as he had done in the past, no real tailoring it to his tour group.

It was exactly what we expected in terms of accommodation, meals and the actual jungle but we had a much greater appreciation for the area having personally been there.
