How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Our tour leader was beyond perfect. A friendly, kind best mate always happy, funny, caring and there for you when you needed him. Great historical, cultural, local and political knowledge. Entertaining, caring, intelligent, immensely hard working and committed and a brilliant cook. Manuel exceeded all expectations and kept spirits on an incredibly demanding trip.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
"It is beautiful but hard. It is not just the trekking through the Sabana for days followed by trekking through jungle up a mountain and then around a mountain and then down a mountain and back through jungle and Sabana, crossing rivers and navigating sublime sub tropical thunderstorms along the way in intense heat with rucksacks on and the sun beating down. No, this is just part of it. The driving, the canoeing, even getting to the Angel Falls is physically and consequently emotionally demanding. The country has virtually no tourist infrastructure making this a real adventure but this is also reflected in the fact that it is 1 star for Comfort and 5 for Strenuousness."
