On March 26th we checked into the Bandeirantes Hotel in Copacabana to start our GAP tour. In the lobby there was a sign posted welcoming us & our group of 5 (including Dan & I). As we were checking into our room we met 2 fellow Canadian travellers who were also in our group – Joe & Lauren – a couple from Winnipeg.
After a bit of shopping with Linds & Joe we headed back to the hotel for our 5pm welcome meeting where we met Zaida our CEO (Chief Experience Officer) & Charlotte our other group member from the UK. We reviewed the plan for the next 15 days, how we would be travelling, the optional activities available to us.
We found out that our tour was 2 tours put together and that we would have additional passengers joining and a new tour leader for the Bolivia portion.
After reviewing the details, learning a bit about our fellow passengers we parted ways for the night before our noon pickup from the hotel the next day.
Both Dan & I are excited to be travelling with someone else doing the planning for us!
