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

Peru

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

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

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

Argentina

“Our holiday was great, albeit exhausting! Argentina is such a stunningly beautiful place and the highlights were definitely hiking in El Chalten (wish I could have done more) and El Calafate. All went very well with the trip, apart from the slight hiccup regarding my baggage allowance with the Aerolineas Pass, but your email and assistance was helpful. Thanks once again to you and the team for all of your help, and especially in sorting out all the last minute changes which were very much appreciated!” - SA travelled in November 2018

Costa Rica

“Thanks for arranging a brilliant holiday for us. For me, I think the highlight was staying at the Nayara Springs hotel and visiting the hanging bridges in Arenal. Our guide there was excellent, and showed us how to photograph wildlife through a spotting scope. We also saw whales and dolphins on our excursion from Playa Cativo, and on our last night the hotel laid on a special dinner for us in the bar – luxury private dining. The hotels were all great and the staff friendly and helpful. We’d certainly go back to Costa Rica, but maybe in the dry season next time.” - ST travelled in July 2018

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

Brazil

“We had a great time! The trip was exactly what we had hoped for, the mix of action in Iguaçu and the Amazon and chill-out in Bahia was just right. We totally fell in love with Brisas do Espelho and the Amazon Turtle Lodge was a real surprise. We had such fun there, especially the kids! (and less creepy-crawlies than expected...)” - PM travelled in August 2018

Chile/Argentina

“We arrived home this morning after such a great trip! Thank you, it was beautifully planned - with enough downtime to recover from all the excitements!

Although there was a lot of travelling, it all went like clockwork, and it did mean we saw so much and got a flavour of each country. Good guides too, and we were particularly fortunate with the young man who looked after us in the Atacama - he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We were a little apprehensive about the Tango evening in Buenos Aires, having been to some gruesome ‘local culture’ events in other countries, but it was brilliant and very well done, good food too, so altogether a winner. The whole thing was a great success, so thanks again from us both.” - JK travelled in January 2020

Ecuador

“A wonderful family run hacienda with lovely, friendly staff. All of the activities are interesting and I would especially recommend the bee-keeping and chocolate making. All the food is delicious and I was very well looked after throughout my stay. I only had two nights and would have loved a third!” - ED travelled in September 2019

Costa Rica

“It was excellent in pretty well all respects. The Cocos diving was good, with plenty of hammerhead and other sharks. It was challenging – perhaps a bit like a much warmer version of the  English Channel (with strong currents and big waves at times), but also a great experience. The Island was pretty too, although landing needed permission from the Rangers, so we only went ashore for 3 brief visits.
 
On the main part, Savegre Lodge was more basic than the exceptional standards of the other accommodation, and the food was less reliable (it was better in the bar than in the restaurant). Its big advantage was the guide, who was exceptional – he found the Quetzels, and also created a bird garden around his house next to the Lodge that was stunning. I think the trade-off between luxury and the quality of the guide worked out well.
 
Maybe the best part was Tortuego, by a small margin. Location was great, and again we had an excellent guide for the two boat trips and also the turtle nesting night. Wildlife extended into the hotel grounds, with howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots etc. And the forest walk was impressive too, with rather a lot of poison arrow frogs. I did get a better picture of a sloth at Puerto Viejo, but that was luck in coming across one on the ground.
 
The coffee tour at Finca Blanca Rosa was great. It helped there only was one small family with us, and the coffee was really good. Accommodation was too, and we were upgraded to a villa with a Jacuzzi outside.
 
The longest transfer to the last hotel was a bit tiring, although the driver sensibly broke the journey for lunch. The minibus was from a different tour company, and was not in the best condition – it seemed to have had a scrape that took out two side windows which were repaired with heavy duty transparent plastic sheets. Seats also seemed a bit smaller than Costa Rican Trails transport. The best transfers were in their SUV type vehicles.” - JJ travelled in September 2019

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

Argentina

“What a joy my adventure in north-west Argentina was - wonderful time, loved the extreme landscapes (such beauty), great driver and some good pictures. I will draw breath and ring you, but I am saturated with wonderful scenery and very happy that I decided to do this trip. Very strange being back to civilization and surrounded by cars and people - I already miss the Puna and the infinite silence.” - JW travelled in January 2018

Chile/Argentina

“We had a fantastic time in Chile and Argentina, and Torres del Paine was just amazing. We had so many different experiences, met such lovely people, have thousands of photos and stories! The organisation was just perfect, it all ran like clockwork, we couldn't believe how smoothly it all worked. The only disappointing thing for us was that our Spanish didn't work very well. Thank you so much for organising such a special trip for us, we couldn't have done it without you.” - AM travelled in January 2018

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
