Peru

“Thank you for your huge part in putting together this unique, tailored trip to ancient sites in Peru, and adjusting the schedule when necessary and adding things which made people feel very cared for. The trip was so fulfilling, I was wowed by many of the sites and loved Chavín de Huántar, but many of the other sites too including Pacopampa and Wilcahuain, plus many of the museums. Our main guide was a wealth of information and it was very moving to hear her talk about the devastation wrought by natural disasters and their impact on communities past and present. The contact with the archaeologists was a huge asset too - I'm really thankful for you enabling that.” - MR travelled in August 2019

Costa Rica

“Firstly thank you for your expertise and very valued knowledge. Not a single transfer was late, the drivers were excellent and the vehicles first class. I felt our itinerary was very balanced and well paced and there was only one hotel that I would have changed, all the other the hotels and lodges were excellent. I completely fell in love with Costa Rica as did my son. It really is a special place and our route, anti-clockwise, was definitely the way to go! There was so much wildlife everywhere and our highlights were, in no particular order, the sloths, such awesome creatures, the toucans, the trip to the hot springs, the sky walk and zip line in the cloud forest and Xandari for our final two nights, a real treat! It really was a truly fabulous trip and thank you for making it happen.” - HM travelled in December 2019

Peru/Chile/Argentina/Brazil

“We arrived home yesterday from an amazing three weeks in South America visiting Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil and wanted to thank you for putting together a fantastic package for us. With 9 different hotels and 6 internal flights we had anticipated a few difficulties but it is fair to say that things all ran very very smoothly. There was someone to meet and greet us at every airport and your local agents were very very helpful. All of our guides were knowledgeable and experienced and although we bonded better with some than others all, without exception, were good with some we would describe as outstanding. All the hotels met our minimum requirements, many were very very good and I'm not sure it was deliberate but if so congratulations - our first hotel and our last two were very high quality which set us up and let us down very nicely indeed. All visits/trips you booked for us were as advertised and very appropriate for us as individuals (it must be difficult for you to judge your clients - we were hungry for knowledge of local culture, history etc. but know when our appetite has been sated). Only once did we feel were were suffering from a slight sensory overload - day 6 of the Inca's - and that may well have been partly the affects of nausea related to altitude.

Before we set off we were slightly anxious about the pace of travel, the packing and unpacking etc. but it was all managed very well - all in all some very happy, well travelled clients. Thank you!” - RP travelled in October 2019

Peru

“What a magical trip. Perfection in every way.” - RR travelled in January 2020

Peru

“Peru is a beautiful country. We enjoyed a very packed and eventful exploration of approximately 11 ancient sites from 4,000 BC to 800 AD of amazingly preserved temples, cities and dwellings, from the coastal deserts near Lima, up into the mountains in north-western Peru. The often long gruelling bus journeys were rewarded by such a wonderful archaeological richness that, by the end, it was as if we were participating in a sort of travel back in time through imaginative recreation of those earliest settlements and civilisations – their social organisation, hieratic structures and pre emptive rituals to ward off the ever lurking threat of deluge, food shortage, disease, famine and earthquake. Our days of dusty archaeological site visits were finally rewarded by the astonishing richness of artefacts on display in private collections at the Sipan, Amana and Larco Museums. Along the way we were privileged to have inspiring talks with site archaeologists and, despite a few minor hiccups, our hotels were comfortable and our guides excellent in their knowledge of the areas we visited. Many thanks for organising this extensive trip for us.” - AG travelled in August 2019

Chile/Argentina/Brazil

“We had a great trip with so many diverse things to see and do, and many happy memories. Catching up with friends in Valparaiso and Buenos Aires made it personal as well. Sights like Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno and Iguazu will not be quickly forgotten. All the connections worked and pick ups happened as planned - thank you for your excellent attention to detail. The local agencies were terrific and the guides were not just well informed, but good company too. We enjoyed the wealth of wildlife, especially birds, and flowers and discovering the Lake District in Argentina was a pleasant surprise, away from the normal tourist routes and the car hire went well. Our accommodation was good to very good with a few unusual quirky places. We ate lots of good meals and I particularly enjoyed the Chilean and Argentine wines - we were also introduced to pisco sour which should be on everybody’s list! Thank you again for arranging such a very good trip.” - JR travelled in January 2019

Costa Rica

“All transfers by car were on time and with very nice drivers. The hotel staff were charming and we found the concierge service very helpful too. The holiday was a great success, many thanks for organising it.” - AB travelled in February 2019

Peru

“Thank you for your email and homecoming welcome from our journey in Peru. It was a most wonderfully absorbing and organic trip and I’m still processing it. It was organic in its very nature - a group of disparate travellers responding to one person’s dream on the one hand, and an exciting gamble into the world of adventure on the other. Of course, none of us were archaeologists in the real sense but I felt we came close to it through our experience. We were well looked after and the hotels were welcoming and comfortable. One or two in the more inaccessible areas were more simple than others, but they were perfectly adequate and I enjoyed being closer to the spirit of Peru.

Our guides were excellent - all three were local, very professional and friendly. They shared with us their passion for their country and their interest in its history. They were educated, well informed and lively. Our guide in the north, who was with us for ten days or so, gave of herself totally, making sure that we were looked after and experienced Peruvian hospitality. The programme was extremely full, if anything a bit relentless. Some of the journeys were very long and there was little time for absorbing and reflecting on our experiences. On the other hand, the sites were distant from each other and by travelling so far we gained a picture of Peru which we might otherwise have missed. From the coastal desert, to the dry hills, to the green valleys into the Andes and the snow capped mountains it was stunning.

The archaeological sites were extraordinary and I was still fascinated when we came to number eleven. Each had its particular revelations and I came home feeling that I had been in the company of ancient peoples who were ever alive and just like me. The past was in the present. This was an ambitious trip, and in some ways we were pioneers, but it worked and will remain with me for a long time. Thank you.” - ES travelled in August 2019

Peru

“The trip was amazing. The planning and execution were nearly flawless and it was exactly what we were looking for: a real introduction to Peru, with the cities, Amazon rain forest, and above all the Andes with high-altitude trekking, Inca history, an introduction to the people, culture and cuisine.

The Lares Trek was the highlight of the trip. I can’t express how amazing it was from beginning to end, and I can’t thank you enough for recommending this. The number 1 success factor was our guide - I have rarely met such a wonderfully warm, genuine, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and just all-around excellent human being. The trek itself was glorious. I was a little nervous about my ability to get through it, but in the end it was totally manageable.

The vistas, the vast spaces, the mountains, the camelids, the people we saw and met - I thought I was prepared but everything was beyond my expectations. I felt a real peace and joy during those walks that I have rarely felt at any other time. The Inca trail and Machu Picchu were also fantastic. These are more touristy and not as awe-inspiring as the vast solitude of the Lares trek itself, but they are extraordinary and we are so happy to have experienced them!

I can barely begin to describe the wonders of the trip and just how good everything was at every step of the way! I cannot recall a vacation that was so smooth and so wonderful, and that is really thanks to Last Frontiers and your great planning, ideas, contacts, and responsiveness to our needs.” - HD travelled in August 2019

Costa Rica/Panama

“It was fantastic and everything went like clockwork. Your advice was spot on, everyone was friendly and turned up when promised, and each hotel was different but lovely. We will definitely be in touch again for our next trip to Latin America.” - TR travelled in September 2018

Chile

“We had a fantastic trip to Chile and loved every minute of it. We were lucky because we had glorious sunshine for all of the 3 weeks we were there. All your suggested areas worked very well for us and the highlight of our trip was Patagonia - I am very glad that we decided to go there as part of our trip. All the people we dealt with from your local agent were excellent and very helpful. We also were very happy with all the hotels we stayed at, the best one was definitely the Tierra Patagonia, and we had very good rooms in each hotel. We would love to visit other parts of South America” - DC travelled in November 2018

Argentina

“A truly amazing holiday and seeing those wonders of nature was jaw dropping. We enjoyed the stunning scenery around Cachi, Cafayate and Salta and our guide was fantastic-his knowledge was amazing. Thanks again for your assistance and organisation.” - BH travelled in January 2019

Argentina

“Many thanks for your welcome home and for all your help. We arrived back safely after a really excellent trip and all the arrangements went very smoothly. Aside from the drive to and from Iruya, which was amazing if hair-raising, the highlights for both of us were probably the walk on the glacier and seeing the penguins on the Valdes peninsula. As very amateur bird lovers, it was also fabulous to see three burrowing owls on a short early evening walk behind the hotel at Tolombon. The drive to El Chalten and the views from Aguas Arriba and from the hotel in Cachi were also pretty special. Once again, very many thanks for all your input - your advice was invaluable.” - GB travelled in December 2018

Mexico

“We had a great holiday thank you. The highlights were the townhouse in Merida, The Haciendas in Santa Rosa and Campeche, Casa Sandra on Holbox and the lagoon side villa in Bacalar. The ability to get in to Chichen Itza early in the morning was invaluable for that visit. We probably liked Uxmal the most given the relative lack of tourists and impressive ruins. Calakmul being so remote and least uncovered site made it less impressive for us. I was also pleasantly surprised by the standard of driving in Mexico away from Cancun.” - VB travelled in January 2019
