You should call the vet and ask for some details before you commit. Things like cost, do you bring your own food, what about veggies. You are well within your rights to tour the boarding facility before hand.
I'd love to find a professional pet sitter though, so the guinea pig can stay in his proper C&C cage and I don't have to keep asking my mom for favors. I keep asking around and no one knows anybody!

My experience has been fantastic. They are spoiled rotten and like rshevin said, don't care about me until I'm back. Kumar runs the place when he's there and he gets away with far too much in their care.
Seriously, I feel better leaving these particular pigs with the vet where I'm sure their needs are being tended to. I can call and get updates or emails. There are certain places that are far too loud though due to other animals, that might be something to consider if you can check the boarding area.

Even with the volume discount, I have found it cheaper to buy plane tickets for a couple relatives, and pay them to watch the pigs.
They get a paid vacation in San Diego, I get pig/house sitters and save a few hundred dollars.
