We were docked on 12/15/12 at Santo Thomas Guatemala. We were right in the middle of a 10 night cruise. I had read reviews on cruise critic about go with gus tours and especially this Livingston tour. Our tour was on a saturday so we were not able to go to the kids school but we did see the kids in their little village on the river. There was some confusion about the time we were supposed to depart. Some people booked with a third party and were told 9:45am some were told 9am and We were told 9:30am. Because of this when we departed the pier we had to turn around and go back to pick up the people who were late but were really just given the wrong information. Then we picked them up and were on their way. Some people were not happy about this and complained to Gus, he promised us some beers on him at the restaurant which was very nice of him and he apologized many times. The boat ride to livingston was wonderful, peaceful and beautiful. We stopped at one of Gus's hotels and had some fresh fruit that was amazing. Then we were off to a place for a cold beer and the hot springs, we hung out here for a bit and it was great. Next we went to a little area in the village on the water where we got to eat home made tortillas and beans, there were kids there selling jewelry and it was excellent food, banana bread too! Then we went to Livingston and had lunch with gus, and our group. They had people singing and dancing at the restaurant. I can not recommend this tour enough. Gus really loves his people, he loves that we get to experience his culture and I would 100% do this tour again!
