We had not tent camped in a LONG LONG time, so the 5 nights (Camp and Cabin) tour was what we thought would be manageable, in case it was awful. It was wonderful and we realized we could have done a longer trip. The guides,...More

Hi Jaqui. My family (2 adults, 3 kids) would love to do the explorer adventure as well. I have done research and compared prices. Get up and Go is the most affordable compared to other tour operators. Did you conclude the same in your research? How was your experience in terms of tour quality, food, lodging, and guides? I am trying to understand why the other companies are so much more expensive. I appreciate the time.
