Roraima Trek with Mystic Tours Reviews
Cheap, good value tour! Aug 10, 2009
In Santa Elena, there are about 5 or 6 tour companies offering treks to Roraima. They all do the same route and the camps on the way are the same, so the only things to differentiate the tours are:
* Quality of the guide/knowledge
* Quality of food
* Quality of tents/camping gear
Mystic Tours is run by a guy called Roberto, who has fantastic knowledge of Gran Sabana and Roraima. He does an hour and a half briefing the night before so that you know what to expect and what to pack.
The tour costs 1450 BsF is you have 5 or more in a group and thats the cheapest on offer in Santa Elena. The price increase to 1550/1650 if you have 4/3 people respectively. The tour was good fun and generally well organised. The only downside was that Jose our guide, did not speak English, which meant we lacked some of the understanding of the plants and sights etc on the way.
The food was plentiful and I thought good quality given the available facilities. Porters and guides were polite and helpful, so I would happily recommend Mystic to anyone trekking Roraima.
