have many people done tours with this company?

If so how were they?
professionally run? good guides, accommodation? value?

I was planning on doing a trip from Santiago down through Patagonia on a boat then to national parks and back to Santiago - 2 weeks.

Then another trip I fancied was from Santiago all the way to La Paz taking in many stops en route and including 4 days in the 4x4 jeeps. This trip is almost 3 weeks in total.

The group size is min 2 max 12. All sounds and looks great on brochures but want some real feedback.

If anyone would like to see the itinerary then look on GAP Adventurer website and check trip codes CIP & JSL.

I plan to do these trips in approx 1 year from now.

If anyone knows of any company who does a similar trip could they please let me know.

Many thanks in advance,

I have not personally done any tours with GAP Adventures, but know a few people that have. Everyone I know has had a great time and had few complaints. I know people who have done Peru / Galapagos, Peru / Inca trail and Costa Rica. The groups are small. It's usually a pretty mixed bag of people - everyone from people in their 20s to older travellers.

I've been looking at them for a trip to Antarctica. They have really decent prices as compared to some of the trips.

I took a GAP tour to Central America and it was fantastic. I'd definitely recommend this company.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
It's good to know the reputation is good. The 2 tours I mentioned fulfill my criteria almost exactly so it looks like I will prob go ahead and book these later on this year. I am just doing some early planning.

I have read plenty about United Mice on here too so may look to see their stuff, particularly with respect to Peru.

Thanks again.
