      Generally, I recommend this trip and I'm glad we did it. Could be improved: An apparent typo in a new itinerary, which was sent to us a few days before the trip, resulted in us missing a flight and a very stressful and expensive experience buying new tickets and losing hotel payments in our next destination. However - if you double check everything yourself as we should have done, the trip would have been a full success. Be aware that accommodation in some countries, especially Surinam, is quite rough despite better options. Our hotel was under construction while we stayed there; literally some of the walls were torn down and covered with tarps. Still, such accommodation probably keeps the cost down for the whole trip. Two Surinam entry visas were needed due to itinerary planning, which we thought was poorly done until we realized how difficult it is to get Americans in and out of French Guyana. That's a suggestion for the country, not the tour company, since they can't really do much about it! Also be prepared for a lot of time in cars and some very early departure times (5:30am, 6am some days). Highlights: the drivers and tour guides were all helpful and friendly, despite varying levels of English. It's awesome to be able to visit so many countries with limited vacation time. The airport pickups all went well. The sights were incredible. We never knew what to expect, in a good way.

Loved also the guides gave us a lot of information about the surrounding flora and fauna and that we were able to catch a cock-of-the-rock! Grateful to have experienced this incredible trip!

      I had a fantastic time on the 9 day tour. All the guides and drivers were incredibly friendly and helpful. I found the tour to be a good balance between history and nature. I learnt so much about these three interesting countries.

      Reliable. The trip was quite long but went as described. People were willing to help with the suitcases and were very friendly. Good driving: fast and safe.
