Tamasin "I absolutely have to write this review so that no one else is almost deterred by the 2-star reviews! I booked this tour because it squeezed so many amazing places that I wanted to see in under a month. Previously, I have got home sick in less than a month, but this time I am honestly sad that it's over! It was absolutely amazing and i'll always remember it fondly. I was worried that South Ameri..."

    Mafer is hands down the best tour leader I've ever had. Her knowledge, bubbly attitude to travelling as well as socialising with the group is amazing. Nothing is too hard when it comes to requests or questions and she makes us feel safe at all times.

    A lot of choice of tours plus peace of mind about choosing a trusted local tour operator. I was a little apprehensive to book a holiday online but the company is trustworthy and I found reviews I could trust about it.
