I had a great time on my trip to Alaska and met some amazing people who I still keep in touch with. However, I do have a few complaints. My counselors seems very uneducated on my medical disability and put me in danger a couple of times. The trip did not seem well put together or thought out. There were too many changes while we were on the trip. They were not going by the itinerary at all and this was very aggravating. I loved the trip and had a blast however my trip to Costa Rica last summer with a different company was a lot better planned and I felt 100% safer than I did in Alaska. I even had an incident in Costa Rica where I got sick and they handled it well. In Alaska, none of my three counselors seemed to know anything and left me feeling very alone in that aspect. I wish they knew more and I would’ve felt safer.
