Here is what participants of prior Veracruz Fungi Explorations saw and had
to say about their mycology adventures in this exotic, semi-tropical region:
"I have already told a number of my friends about the tour. I knew nothing about mushrooms before I went. I learned something about them while I was there. I would go again. However, I would go not so much for the mushroom hunt but to enjoy the company of those on the tour, the "differentness" of the tour and the chance to listen to some knowledgeable people talk about something about which they are passionate."
(Dana Clarence, Toronto, ON)
"We had the best, most memorable and educational experience of our lives wrapped into one!"
(Linda and Ron Moore, Hamburg, AR)
"I enjoyed the trip. I wanted to see the various ecosystems of eastern Mexico, and that's exactly what we did. You guys were great guides and it was terrific to be able to stay at out-of-the-way places like the haciendas rather than some boring hotel. I would (will) go again."
(Patrick Laughlin MD, Albuquerque, NM)
"This tour seemed more like traveling with friends than with tour guides. This was due especially to the exceptional care taken by Gundi and Erik in every aspect of our week together. Their personal attention to each traveler's needs was highly valued. The quality and variety of the lodging and meals was unique. Fine, well prepared local food at every meal. Quantities of the food were almost overwhelming. It was clear that the management at the various facilities liked Gundi and Erik and they were well prepared to meet all our needs. Gundi and Eric provided an opportunity to immerse ourselves in another culture and facilitated our maximum enjoyment at each stop. Our time was well balanced between mushroom collecting, sight seeing, shopping and "kicken' it" whether at the pool, on the beach or in beautiful gardens. Smiles everyday, good nights' sleep and a reluctance for the magical experience to end...until next time!"
(Diane Pruden, Milford, Michigan)
"The trip was wonderful, the traveling companions were generally delightful people, and you two were absolutely great."
(Christy Beckmann, Chicago, Illinois)
"We had a really great time...it was a trip of a lifetime."
(Christy Cox-Ratner, Carlsbad, California)
"Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! It was seriously the best trip I have ever been on and that is primarily due to the attention and detail you guys put into your tours. Hopefully, I will make it back again some day."
(Emily Blizzard, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia)
"The trip – our second tour with you – was really great and spending time with Dr. Gaston Guzman was really a neat experience. The exposure to tropical fungi will help me understand our USA gulf coast flora even more."
(David Lewis, Newton, Texas)
"Thanks again for an excellent holiday and learning experience."
(Peter and Joan Banks, Bright’s Grove, Ontario)
"The whole trip was fabulous."
(Connie Green, San Francisco, California)
