“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
“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 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
“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
“The holiday was amazing. It was a good balance of exercise (Salkantay trek) rest and relaxation (Urubamba) and then the jungle. We were over cautious in the Amazon with protective clothing as we were not bothered at all by mosquitoes so shorts and t-shirts would have been fine. There is a fair amount of physical activity there, getting on and off boats, steps down to the river and some people found that a challenge. The hotels you chose were all of a really high standard.” - LH travelled in August 2018
“We had an amazing trip and have fabulous memories to treasure. Until the next adventure.” - JK travelled in August 2019
“Thank you once again for organising such a wonderful holiday for us!! The holiday had so much variety and we stayed in the most amazing places. I think the highlights were probably the Condoriri hike, the Amazon and the trip across the salt flats and the altiplano. It was nice that you punctuated the holiday with some super walks. It was all truly memorable and a hard act to follow.” - SH travelled in August 2018
“We had a marvellous time in Brazil, all the flights worked, all the drivers and guides were great and the hotels were fab, the trip on Tucano was great fun too. Everything that you organised worked perfectly. Thank you.” - SE travelled in October 2018
“I just want to thank you for your part (and your local partner in Chile) for making our holiday in Chile such a memorable trip. It really was a wonderful combination of luxury and adventure which has made the return to the humdrum very difficult. It's very difficult to give any constructive criticism, there isn’t much under your direct control and it would not be realistic anyway to expect perfection in a country of such great wilderness. I would class Explora Hotel (and Patagonia in particular) as more of an adventure than a resort and thanks again for arranging that for us - it was the highlight.” - RB travelled in January 2019
“Thanks for organising our recent holiday, we had a wonderful time and everything went to plan and ran exactly as stated in the itinerary. The organisation of the trekking part of the trip was outstanding - there were only 4 of us in the group and we were taken care of by 12 porters/cooks who came up with delicious and varied food. All the team were friendly and helpful. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.” - EM&NS travelled in June 2018
“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
“I have travelled fairly extensively in the last few years but I can say that the Galapagos is the most unique place I have ever visited and it was my most memorable holiday ever. Like a lot of people I have seen many TV programmes showing the fabulous wildlife in the islands but always thought that the pictures were the result of special cameras and telephoto lenses recording from a considerable distance.
To find the wildlife so very close and so utterly unafraid of humans was breath-taking and I am still having to pinch myself to make me realise it was not a dream. The courtship display of the waved albatross, frigate birds with their red throat sac, blue and red footed boobies, iguanas so numerous that it is difficult not to step on them, snorkelling with playful seals showing off their aquatic prowess and the sedate lumbering giant tortoises will long remain in my memory.
Your recommendation of the Mary Anne was spot on. As you know I had been looking for sometime for a boat that did not charge a single supplement and it was down to you that I found the Mary Anne which ticked this box. In addition, being a sailing craft, it was completely different to all the other boats sailing around the Islands which made the voyage even more spectacular. Everything on the boat was first class from the cabins, the meals, to the wonderful crew. Above all the route taken on this cruise took us to some of the more remote islands where the best of the wildlife was to be found. Other people I spoke to later in my holiday who had been on other more central cruises had not seen half the wild life that we had come across.
As to the organisational side of the trip I have nothing but praise for the excellent service provided by Last Frontiers, from the initial advice and help you gave me in the planning stage to the actual delivery of the cruise. The choice of the Wyndham hotel in Guayaquil was ideal for the short stay I had, very luxurious accommodation with a good selection of restaurants very close to the hotel. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends. Sorry to have written at such length but that is what happens when one experiences the holiday of a lifetime! Thanks again for all your help.” - PC travelled in May 2019
“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
“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
“Wow! What a brilliant holiday. It was well organised with the pace of activities and leisure time just right. Thank you Last Frontiers for your excellent organisation.” - LM travelled in March 2018
