My mom and I have always wanted to visit a tropical rainforest together, particularly Costa Rica, but our schedules never allowed us the time. She is now retired, and I am a 25 year old graduate student. This trip fell perfectly between the end of my summer semester and beginning of fall. This was our first Caravan Tour and certainly...

Took the Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion 8 day Tour. With Sedona, Montezuma Castle, Monument Valley, Cammeroom Trading Post, Glen Canyon Dam Tour, Lake Powell Cruise, Kanab top thrown in as well. Everything about this tour company is top notch. Price, Itinerary, hotels, meals, tour guide, driver and extra specials that got included. You are in great hands with Caravan.

I thought I had already written a review but when I realized I hadn't I had to. I signed on Trip Advisor to write another review for my trip... More

Had a excellent trip to Guatemala with Caravan (last summer 2015) with our guide Virginia de Fuentes - an energetic and knowledgeable guide who had an encyclopedic knowledge and deep personal history with the Country. We had just arrived after the deposition of the president and during the rallies to depose the then, vice-president. Our time on the ground was... More

first i want to be clear, the caravan tour staff are nice and professional, this is strictly a review of what the tour is as a package and my review is directed at Caravan management, not the lovely professional dedicated employees that carry out Caravan's awful decisions. Only book the Costa Rica Natural Paradise tour if you are over 70... More

July 20-28, I had the opportunity to travel with Cinthia Cuadra and Geovanni González Castro. Having never been on a tour, I was unaware of what to expect. It was a delightful surprise to have so much information presented in a way that was synced with the location and Eco-activities, information ranging from Central American political history, education, to economic...

My son went to Costa Rica with friends in February. They split the cost on hotels, food, SUV rental, etc. which was costly. He said driving was crazy and some roads were impassable. We didn't want to deal with all that so our travel agent recommended Caravan Tours. WOW! What an incredible experience! From the time we arrived until the... More
