Has anyone heard from Gus lately?

I've sent 2 requests via his website and an email in the last 3 weeks.
I have not had a respond to any of my attempts to contact him.
I understand email is probably spotty in Guatemala. What has been
others experiences in response time?

Thanks in advance!

Have been trying to contact too, with emails and via the website contact, but no response. There is an error message coming up on on booking form - perhaps not there any more?

I don't know the reason for this but I do know he spends a good amount of time here in the US & I think he does it during the summer. Maybe he's up here & not checking his email? I hope he gets back w/ you soon.

Just so you know, in case you're trying to reserve spots, we did not book ahead but were able to book at the pier w/ no problem.

Hello All:

I had sent an e-mail to Go For Gus about a week or so ago and did receive a reply last night with the details of the itinerary and how to book.

I sent a message via his website last week - no response. Today I sent him and emailed and it bounced back with an error message. Any suggestions?

Hey Jackie and Jim,

Still no luck here! I sent another email yesterday and still not reply.
I hope he is ok - everyone has such nice things to say about him.

I'm going to try another tactic here on the board and see if some other members have the answers I wanted from Gus. Wish me luck!

Then I will decide what to do when I arrive and if he is available.

Let us know if you hear from him. we are going around Christmas time and want to do the humanitarian tour, but only if the schools are open, so that's why we really want to speak with him before making plans...

Just an FYI - We were there over Easter break '09 & their schools were not open BUT there were many kids who knew ahead of time that we were coming & showed up. Not sure if they'd come around over the Christmas holidays but wanted to let you know that they did over Easter.

I am taking this tour in December. I got a little spooked when I noticed everyone looking for Gus........so I emailed him. He responded within a few hours. This is his response.........

The electricity is pretty bad and sometimes I don΄t receive the email inquiries. If you have a chance, please answer one of the question from cruisecritic, let everyone know that I have replied to you and that Go With Gus is getting ready for the next Cruise Season.

Just FYI the email address I used was [email protected]

Did Gus get in contact with you? He called me and then sent his personal email [email protected] what great customer service. He assures that all will be taken care of.

Hello,

No - I still have not heard from Gus. I do not blame him I blame cyberspace and lack of connectivity is some areas of the world.

Do you think I should try this email address as well?

Yes of course. I asked him if he got an email and he said no. The email I posted today is his personal and not the hotel. Funny, when we were talking on the phone the power went out and that was the end of the conversation. That is why he emailed me, to say sorry and to give a different email.
Good luck, he is expecting your email.

Hello:

I heard back from Gus on Monday with the details of Humanitarian Tour and the address to send a deposit.

I replied that I amiled the check, and he replied immediately.

My wife and I have travelled extensively and I have every confidence in Gus.

We will be with him on 11/13.

I finally heard from his as well from the email [email protected]. It makes me just a little nervous to be sending money in advance of the tour. At least ifyou use a credit card you have some protection.
