- I have already done this. Unusually, we have done many Explore trips, the organisation was clunky. I assume this is due to delegation to a local agent as our tour leader was well aware of the problems and worked very hard to sort them out. She arranged those trips our group felt to be the highlights.
I realise the fall in the pound caused problems, but some accommodation was well substandard and unsafe. Air conditioning was patchy and we never encountered mosquito nets though some of our group had them. The inter-island travel arrangements were taxing. I understood from talking to other local guides that Whitchurch was having serious financial problems, money misspent, and key members of staff "away". Hence the appropriate bookings had not been made.
