My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first-ever RoadScholar trip. Peter was our guide and he was fabulous... so knowledgeable about everything and very personable. He was on top of everything! The trip itinerary was perfect and included a very good balance of visiting Maya sites with other activities. We have never traveled with a group before and were not sure what to expect and we were so pleasantly surprised. Such a nice group of folks to travel with.
Better than expected!!!!!
Hike and Snorkel to find the Mystery of the Maya will place a new challenge before you each day. You'll have thin air under your feet on the canopy walk. You can bask in the view atop Temple IV at Tikal. You'll have to mind your head and your feet bouldering through Acting Tunichil Muknal Cave. There will be mud on the Black Hole trail that can make the trail as much of a challenge as the rappelling! And the reef at South Water Caye is to be rivaled only by the hammocks at Jaguar Reef Lodge! A well placed adventure!
A wonderful experience. Learned a lot about the Mayan culture and history through several integrated portions of the program.
This is a great trip. Just be sure you know what you are getting into at ATM cave, not for anyone leary of rock climbing at heights. For me the tubing in the cave was a much better cave experience. Other activities were super. Guides were great. Even in ATM, they got me out safely. Got a good picture of many aspects of Belize.
You must go on this trip if you enjoy a mix of physical challenges, getting down and sweaty and enjoying the natural and cultural world of Belize and Guatelmala. Our program guide, Israel Canto, is as good as it gets. He is an exceptionally knowledgeable naturalist who has the organizational skills and affable personality that made for a wonderful experience. Please note that you should have some recent trail hiking on hills, the ability to climb multiple staircases as you will want to participate in all of the incredible activities. To all the wonderful women who kept smiling and laughing: Thanks for the everlasting memories!
If you want a little adventure in your life choose this program. However know before you go that this is physical. Easy for a twenty year old, but over 60 it is challenging. I loved it. Israel, our group leader was the best!
The Program is physically challenging but worth the price of admission. Rene, the masterful guide, treats Scholars as dear family members. Yaxha, Tikal, and Lamanai are awe inspiring. The boat rides are great fun. The hikes and rappelling are terrific. In all, an excellent experience.
Challenging and stimulating tour well-planned and led by a tour guide who is communicative and experienced. Bird and animal life alone were exciting to experience, and the Mayan and Guaringa cultures displayed were authentic and very engaging. Holbrook travel flight connections contributed to our loss of first day of tour, and their support was lacking. Nevertheless, a tremendous experience which I would recommend to everyone. Very educational and fulfilling.
