We had a fantastic trip. All the land arrangements fell nicely into place. The Hotel Calafate Parque was excellent – we had 3 separate stays there, the staff were always very friendly and helpful, including the restaurant staff. The walking in Torres del Paine was a great experience. The weather was kind: only one day of persistent showers (and we were retracing steps that day), otherwise unseasonally warm, sometimes brilliant skies but generally slightly cloudy typical of a Patagonian summer. We heard the roaring winds at night, safe in our very comfortable eco-tent. We were 2 of a group of 9 walkers, with two guides (1 an assistant). They provided great company. Our 2 guides were very well informed and always solicitous of the group’s welfare. The eco-camp is a great concept. The food was plentiful, the staff very accommodating. We can’t fault the overall organization, so thank you to you and the Andean Trails team for putting our holiday together for us. We had a great time.

We’re just back from a great trip in large part to all of your help. The services provided by Andean Trail from El Calafate were outstanding - super professional, helpful and included touches that made a world of difference (printing out boarding passes for us and changing our bus reservation upon arrival to El Calafate to get us in to el Chalten earlier). I want to stress that we really loved the services you provided and feel you guys do an outstanding job. It would have been so much work for us to plan all this for ourselves. Also we were very happy with the accommodations. We would recommend you to any of friends!

The Galaxy was just superb. The yacht was very comfortable.Our en suite cabins just great. And food superb. Please make special mention of the crew. They were so courteous, helpful and friendly. The cabin attendant....I don't know how he managed to do up our cabins ...literally before you could blink. And the snacks after each outing....And the dinners...I couldn't even muster up that on land in a fully-fledged kitchen. The crew of the Galaxy were very very special. I did thank the Capt for a week of safe sailing. Rissel was a superb guide with a treasure trove of info and knowledge. Both the guys who handled the zodiacs and he were so responsible and careful. The galaxy was a superb choice. Crew, boat,food, excursions et al. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't even consider an alternative.

Well, we're back from our family trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. It was everything we hoped and more! The highlight of course was the Galapagos. Again, it far exceeded expectations. The food (on Galaven) was good, the guides were great, and the other passengers were wonderful to meet and spend time with. And the animals -- we saw them all, both above and below the water. All in all, a spectacularly successful holiday that was enjoyed by the whole family and will be remembered fondly forever. Thanks so much for all your help in putting it together!

A lovely 3 nights spent here. A beautiful environment, friendly and welcoming staff and the accommodation was a perfect amount of rustic with clean and tidy rooms, flushing toilet and perfect shower. Our guides were great, loved how they gave us information but gave us the time to think about it, experience it and then if necessary come back and ask more questions.

The most exciting part of the holiday was getting into the dug-out canoe at dawn each morning not knowing what we were going to see that day. We saw fantastic wildlife and our guides (we had both a naturalist and a native guide) were excellent spotters and very informative. My most memorable part of this holiday was gliding through the rainforest in our canoe as it got dark and hearing the many sounds of the rainforest, including the spooky sound of the howler monkey.

"I wanted to say I had a sensationally good trip to Peru. "The help on the ground locally via Jesus and via Yamil, the trek guide, was excellent and Amaru 2 a great place to stay. "The trek was a real experience. The scenery was fantastic and we saw plenty of vicuna (including them bathing in a pool, which sent our guide into rapture) as well as vizcacha, llama and alpaca plus various birds. "The thermal spring on the final night was welcome. A real wild west frontier town. An abiding memory of the trek is how many times, in the middle of nowhere, a random local would suddenly appear. The men appreciated bring given some coca to chew and the ladies often carried their textiles to offer you. All very friendly. "Trip of a lifetime and thanks again for all your help."

The boat selection and the cruise itinerary were outstanding. Both Amazon rainforest and Galapagos were excellent. Everything was perfectly organised. All parts of the trip fully in line with the itinerary. Local representatives were available at the meeting points, they organised the documentation, the transport, everything. Frankly speaking, I was a bit worried due to the lack of experience, but everything worked out well. No low points. Everything was excellent, the guides were very professional and helpful. Accomodation was also well selected, fully in line with the expectations. Next time, we will spend more time in Ecuador and visit other parts of this fascinating country.

Needless to say, I had a fantastic time in the Galapagos, just as you predicted! Everything went incredibly smoothly - in fact, I don't think that there is anything I could fault about the whole trip. I was lucky to have a great group and our guide on the islands was fantastic. Everything was extremely well planned and thought out, so we always knew exactly what we were doing and there was absolutely no stress involved. I would (and will) heartily recommend your services to anyone interested in travelling to South America and the Galapagos. Thanks for all your help in the run up and for a great trip.
