Mexico

“I had a wonderful time in Mexico, it was a hugely enjoyable trip: all flights and arrangements worked really well and I thank you for all your efforts. The schedule that you created worked very well, producing some wonderful memories and my guide was exceptional and very knowledgable - I could not be more delighted. The Espirito Santo, swimming with sea lions excursion, was excellent - it was of course a delight to swim with the sea lions, to observe them at close quarters, but also to see the islands, landscapes, and fauna and flora. The day was calm, with little wind and ample sunshine and was perfect for the activities undertaken.

We saw one youngish whale shark close to the boat and were unlucky not to see any grey whales, but the tour was turned into one of the most enjoyable excursions by the extensive knowledge of the guide who pointed out so many different birds (including pelicans, cormorants, heron, ibis, caracara, a barn owl, a green-breasted mango etc.) and explained about the mangroves ecology. He encouraged the boat captain to search further waters (in the hope of seeing whales) and we were rewarded by a fine sighting of a dozen or so dolphins with some young.

The blue whales tour – Isla Carmen, Loreto, was a delight for the sea life we saw but also for the landscapes and sheer joy of being in an open boat on the largely calm sea. The boat captain was commendably attentive to his responsibilities to the whales and took pains to ensure good sightings were possible, and the knowledge of my guide made the tour very much more rewarding than it would otherwise have been. With great luck we encountered a humpback whale soon after leaving Loreto and were afforded good views, including its tail fin making a silhouette against the sun. Dolphins, mantarays and many different birds were seen and right at the end of the tour (causing its duration to be extended) we had a clear, fairly close sighting of a blue whale. The whole tour was a delight.

In Bahia Magdalena the boat captain was superbly good at his job, tracking down the grey whales with some skill in the swell and manoeuvring the boat at close quarters to the whales for some considerable time to afford the closest contact. We encountered two grey whales who, perhaps having become used to human contact, were willing to display themselves even to the point of being touched. I understand that the sighting and contact we enjoyed was of a quality that could hardly be exceeded. The guide provided much information and encouraged us to interact with the whales. He also arranged a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants in the port.

Once again, the whole experience of my visit to Mexico was a succession of delights, typically exceeding expectations, and I remain very favourably impressed with how you managed to assemble such a wonderful programme for me and with such little effort being required of me. I record my lasting appreciation.

Chile/Argentina

“We had a really excellent holiday and want to thank you very much for all your hard work, especially with the inevitable hitches and glitches. I also finished reading the Brian Keenan and John McCarthy book you sent me. It was wonderful and it's such a great and unique idea to send a book to your clients. The ground services were all super with good communication, punctual and friendly. The Australis cruise lived up to expectations and the cabin, food, service, excursions etc. were superb. El Chalten was my favourite part of the trip. I loved the relaxed, laid back vibe, we had perfect walking weather and I loved being able to hike straight out the door, no park fees or transport needed. Thank you again for organising such a wonderful trip and we will think about our next Latin America adventure soon. More wildlife somewhere, I think.” - UM travelled in February 2024

Costa Rica

“We had a great trip and saw a lot of interesting wildlife and enjoyed some unusual experiences. We only scratched the surface of Costa Rica. All the places we stayed were great, especially Amor Arenal and Arenas del Mar. These two places were spectacular and we wish we had more time to spend on the properties.” - JO travelled in January 2024

Brazil

“We are back and everything went very well. Our time in Rio was busy, but we had a lovely time going to concerts in different parts of the city. Paraty was wonderful, an excellent choice. So much to do there and what a lovely place. We loved it and the trips were great. So the trip passed by in an instant! Another fantastic trip. Thank you so much. I will keep in touch.” - RB travelled in November 2023

Colombia

“As usual I think our Colombia itinerary was spot on and the service and guides were the usual high standard, and met the excellent standard we have come to expect from Last Frontiers. We were spoilt by attentive, knowledgeable and personable staff who significantly contributed to the enjoyment of our holiday! In summary: the usual excellent guides, excellent itinerary – just the right pace and timings - and no issues with regards to transfers, safety, information etc etc. All five stars as always. So that’s it.. another resounding success and a whole load of memories created – THANK YOU!!!” - IP travelled in July 2023

Colombia

“At the outset we wanted a trip which would include the best of Colombia and also to see some of the famous birdlife. Overall the trip was excellent and the guides and your local agents were very good. Our one day in Bogotá was perfect, Hacienda Venecia in the coffee region was an excellent choice and the highlight of the birding side of the trip was Rio Blanco Cloud Forest and the wonderful hummingbirds. Jardin was a smashing little town and the visit to see the Cock of the Rock was something else - we saw around 20! We very much enjoyed Medellin but were disappointed by Tayrona. Cartegena was very hot but I think we covered every single street in the old town, ate in some excellent restaurants and enjoyed the plunge pool at our hotel, Alfiz.” - PC travelled in November 2023

Cuba

“We had a fabulous holiday and feel as if we immersed ourselves in Cuba. There were all sorts of highlights, from snorkelling in the Bay of Pigs, to hiking to Fidel's hideaway in the Sierra Maestra, to spending a morning visiting Hemingway's haunts by 1950s open-topped American car. We would like to make special mention of your Cuban partners who organised our accommodation, transport and social agenda and most notably, their driver/guide, who was exceptional. He looked after us for 13 nights with immaculate driving - no mean feat on the roads and with the fuel shortage - humour, warmth and consideration. He introduced us to local customs, food and experiences beyond our expectations, and gave us confidence in an unfamiliar environment. All the other guides we met along the way were also well-informed, friendly and helped to make our Cuban adventure very special.” - JF&PW travelled in February 2024

Ecuador/Galapagos

“A fabulous trip that exceeded my expectations. I loved Ecuador and all the different areas visited, which included the Amazon, Hacienda Cusin near Otavalo, Cotopaxi and the Galapagos Islands, where the wildlife blew me away. All the arrangements ran like clockwork and Marco, my local guide, went out of his way to show me as much as possible in this wonderful country. Thank you for all your help and advice in organising this special trip - Antarctica is next on my list!” - AM travelled in February 2024

Ecuador/Galapagos

“We had a really enjoyable holiday and all your organisation was 1st class. There were so many highlights, its hard to pick a favourite. Last Frontiers certainly provided the best service we have ever received - you are so knowledgeable and we felt upbeat and confident about the trip from start to finish. Your guide in Quito is a very special, and very kind person who knows so much about his country - we really enjoyed being with him and he made a huge difference to our enjoyment.” - MB travelled in April 2023

Argentina/Antarctica

“We're home and had a brilliant trip. We loved Buenos Aires, the cruise to Antarctica with Aurora Expeditions was fantastic and a couple of nights on an estancia in the Pampas was the perfect way to end before flying home. We were very lucky with the weather and over the moon with all elements of the cruise. There were 120 passengers on board the ship which was a very good number, and it was a nice mix of nationalities. The ship, Greg Mortimer, was very comfortable, the food was very good, and the expedition team and all the staff on board were excellent. The kayaking was great and camping on shore for a night was a unique experience. We have 1000's of photos and lots of wonderful memories. Thank you so much for all you did in helping to put the trip together - a great success.” - JD travelled in November 2023

Brazil

“We had a really good holiday and the places were all fascinating. Congratulations on your reservations and bookings. The organisation, transfers and meeting at all of the airports was perfect and we went at the right time, after carnival. We were frequently told that we were lucky there were so few people around as previously it had been very busy.

People spoke about being careful, but clearly if you do not display expensive jewellery or watches, you are just as safe as any other major city or tourist place.

We greatly enjoyed our holiday, thank you.” - PS travelled in February 2024

Colombia

“Many thanks for organising another fantastic holiday! We loved Colombia and your partners in Colombia were excellent.” - DM&RB travelled in February 2024

Cuba

“Our 3 weeks in Cuba was fantastic. It was a true eye-opener and if I ever get my narrative with pictures finished, I will send it to you. It was well organised and Cuba Private tours, your local agent, was terrific, as were all our guides. We learned so much and felt we really got immersed in Cuba - we loved the people, the music and the art. We couldn’t have done it without your help, so thank you.” - AP travelled in December 2022

Chile

“We had a very successful trip. The itinerary worked out well and we felt we got a good sense of Chile as a whole without too many flights. We particularly enjoyed Cerro Guido, the tour around Arica province, and also enough time to relax in Santiago and see the Pre-Columbian Museum and some of the parks, based from the excellent Le Reve Hotel.” - JE travelled in November 2023

Cuba

“We had a wonderful holiday, thank you! Huge thanks to you and the team in the UK and also the team in Cuba. All the accommodation was great and most of the restaurants and bars suggested were also spot on. Our driver was absolutely brilliant - he was a careful and safe driver with excellent English and very knowledgable about his country. We also enjoyed all of the walking tours and the boat trip in Trinidad was one of the highlights of our whole holiday. All in all then a fabulous holiday, although very sobering to experience the changes for Cubans since we were last there in 2016.” - DC travelled in March 2023
