“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
“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
“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
“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 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
“We had such wonderful time and everything that you organised worked perfectly. I had lots of occasions where I marvelled at your extraordinary ability to organise such a complicated trip, it all went completely to plan and your insightful knowledge and contacts proved very valuable. All the hotels were fantastic, we loved the small boutique ones and recognised that you did your absolute best at all times. I loved it all but found the heat a big challenge, and much as I adored Brazil and the Brazilians, I couldn't recommend the Amazon for anyone that can't take extreme heat and humidity.
The Pantanal, I nearly cried when we left I loved it so much and I adored Daniel, such an exceptional young man who's passion was contagious. The Amazon trip was not for me but I have done it and I wouldn't have listened to anyone if they had said so! Tucano was fab but I was way too hot and now know that I can never go anywhere that hot and humid again! I loved all our guides, they were spectacular and Salvador is fabulous place.
I cannot believe how well you organised all of this, your depth of in-country knowledge and all the connections and the taxis and the guides. It was truly a labour of love and it showed. Thank you so much. If you want any endorsements, don't hesitate to ask!” - A-LG travelled in October 2018
“We're safely back from Chile and Argentina, had an amazing trip and can't wait to go again! With two minor exceptions everything you and your local agents had arranged worked like a dream. We loved almost everywhere we stayed, particularly Indigo Patagonia (Puerto Natales), Puyuhuapi, El Barranco (Futalefu), La Escondida (Villa La Angostora) and Antumalal (Pucón). It's definitely a part of the world we want to see more of so I hope we'll be back before long. If we do we'd want to go further south and also to try to get even further off the beaten track.” - CL travelled in January 2019
Honeymoon to Peru and Brazil
“We had an amazing time! We felt like we really got a flavour for South America during the three weeks we were there and were able to see so many things. All the hotels and transfers were really good. We also really enjoyed the private tours we did with the local agent and felt that their staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Our highlights included our visit to Machu Picchu and staying in the Amazon (seeing and learning about the plants and animals in the rainforest).” - C&GW travelled in July 2018
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“We had an amazing trip, loved Mexico and especially Oaxaca. The local operators were fantastic, all the tours and guides they provided were excellent.” - MA travelled in December 2017
“We had a most fantastic time in Peru and the Galapagos. It was a pretty full itinerary and we felt that we never stopped running, but we enjoyed every single minute of it. Both the Galapagos Islands and Inca Peru blew our minds, but in different ways. If I had to choose three personal highlights, they would be witnessing Waved Albatrosses perform their mating ritual and tend their young at a distance of just a few paces, our first sight of Machu Picchu, and learning about life on the reed islands of Lake Titicaca.
All the staff and guides in Peru were excellent - very knowledgable, we felt that we were learning all the time and extremely patient. Having them to show us around one a one-to-one basis helped us get more of a flavour of what we were seeing than being in a large group. The stand-out person was our young guide on the Beluga yacht in the Galapagos. He was an amazing guide, filled with knowledge and kindness - an absolute star.
Your green book and other literature were extremely thorough and invaluable to us. Overall, we had the most awesome experience and will be very happy to recommend Last Frontiers to anybody interested in visiting South America. Thank you very much once again!” - DM travelled in June 2018
