My wife and I are short these three countries to finish touring South America. Has anyone had experience touring these countries and can you recommend a tour guide or tour company we could contact? O. Westerfield, Tampa, FL

Like you, we only need 2 of these 3 countries. We booked a tour with Adventure Guianas. / We are traveling in September 2017. We are flying from Miami to Georgetown, Guyana via Surinam Airways and returning via Paramaribo, Suriname. The tour and airfare are not cheap ($2,533pp, plus $566pp for air)

I have clients who, coincidentally, needed to visit these three countries to complete their visits to South America as well. I booked them a tour and they had an exceptional time. The ground operator did a wonderful job..

Try Dagron Tours, based in Georgetown, Tuyana -- They have an itinerary called "The Three Guyanas" which a friend has done. Be aware that humidity takes it's toll, and there can be lots of hiking in tropical forests. The owner is Ann Hamilton and the company has good reputation.

Forget using Adventure Guianas or their subcontractor Oetsi Tours in Suriname/French Guiana . Horrible service, horrible planning. I'm thinking about writing an article, but it would so negative that nobody would want to read it. Maybe I will write it as Do as I say, not as we did article. Knowing what I know now, I would do this as an a la carte trip.

I realize I am late to this but we traveled with Oetsi last year and it was a great experience. We booked direct with them which might have made a difference. Dagron never responded to our requests.
