- It was my first trip with explore and I now wish I had started years ago! It was a great success and I can't wait to go on my next one.( At 76 I had better hurry up !) We were very lucky in that there were only six in the group; everyone got on well, shared lots of laughs, consumed quite a lot of beer (it was hot) and always ate together each evening. Linda,our guide, was excellent; her sensible suggestions e.g. a tipping kitty and flagon of water on the minibus for all to use made life a lot easier. Her sense of humour endeared her to us all.
Highlights were the actual Myan sites and the excellent guide in Antigua who also took us to the Mayan villages on Lake Atitlan-a memorable day.
We did not enjoy transitting through Houston on the outward journey. It is such a busy hub immigration took for ever. Then we were delayed coming home due to floods in Houston and had to stay an extra night in Cancun but luckily flew back via Washington which was so much better.
