Some previous client feedback:
“We loved the whole marvellousness of Peru [and the Galapagos], which we were left free to enjoy because we could relax on account of your superlative organisation. I am normally a worrier, and used to organising things myself; after the first few 'proofs of the pudding' I stopped and that, for me, is the perfect holiday :)” - HB
“You did a marvellous job and Colombia was way beyond our expectations. It is such a beautiful country, the people were lovely and could not have done more for us, and the history is absolutely fascinating. Our highlight was undoubtedly San Agustin not only for the history but also for the agriculture where we saw campesino production and processing of both sugar and cacao.” - SB
“We had the most spectacular 3 weeks and would recommend Brazil and your services to anyone. The 'admin' of our trip was perfect in every detail: flights on time, pick up and guides impeccable and the places we visited gave us a really good insight into this vast and fascinating country.” - NC
“The way you handled our little gang - some more geriatric than others - was quite masterly; airstrips and minibuses appeared like magic as if there were no effort involved (not true) and even when your 3rd week went up in smoke you announced with a twinkle in your eye that other arrangements were being made as if it were as easy as handing out a glass of beer; again not true. Thank you again for organising such a splendid trip. Any more in the offing?” - MM
