Mexico

“I had a wonderful time in Mexico, it was a hugely enjoyable trip: all flights and arrangements worked really well and I thank you for all your efforts. The schedule that you created worked very well, producing some wonderful memories and my guide was exceptional and very knowledgable - I could not be more delighted. The Espirito Santo, swimming with sea lions excursion, was excellent - it was of course a delight to swim with the sea lions, to observe them at close quarters, but also to see the islands, landscapes, and fauna and flora. The day was calm, with little wind and ample sunshine and was perfect for the activities undertaken.

We saw one youngish whale shark close to the boat and were unlucky not to see any grey whales, but the tour was turned into one of the most enjoyable excursions by the extensive knowledge of the guide who pointed out so many different birds (including pelicans, cormorants, heron, ibis, caracara, a barn owl, a green-breasted mango etc.) and explained about the mangroves ecology. He encouraged the boat captain to search further waters (in the hope of seeing whales) and we were rewarded by a fine sighting of a dozen or so dolphins with some young.

The blue whales tour – Isla Carmen, Loreto, was a delight for the sea life we saw but also for the landscapes and sheer joy of being in an open boat on the largely calm sea. The boat captain was commendably attentive to his responsibilities to the whales and took pains to ensure good sightings were possible, and the knowledge of my guide made the tour very much more rewarding than it would otherwise have been. With great luck we encountered a humpback whale soon after leaving Loreto and were afforded good views, including its tail fin making a silhouette against the sun. Dolphins, mantarays and many different birds were seen and right at the end of the tour (causing its duration to be extended) we had a clear, fairly close sighting of a blue whale. The whole tour was a delight.

In Bahia Magdalena the boat captain was superbly good at his job, tracking down the grey whales with some skill in the swell and manoeuvring the boat at close quarters to the whales for some considerable time to afford the closest contact. We encountered two grey whales who, perhaps having become used to human contact, were willing to display themselves even to the point of being touched. I understand that the sighting and contact we enjoyed was of a quality that could hardly be exceeded. The guide provided much information and encouraged us to interact with the whales. He also arranged a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants in the port.

Once again, the whole experience of my visit to Mexico was a succession of delights, typically exceeding expectations, and I remain very favourably impressed with how you managed to assemble such a wonderful programme for me and with such little effort being required of me. I record my lasting appreciation.

Cuba

“We had a fabulous holiday and feel as if we immersed ourselves in Cuba. There were all sorts of highlights, from snorkelling in the Bay of Pigs, to hiking to Fidel's hideaway in the Sierra Maestra, to spending a morning visiting Hemingway's haunts by 1950s open-topped American car. We would like to make special mention of your Cuban partners who organised our accommodation, transport and social agenda and most notably, their driver/guide, who was exceptional. He looked after us for 13 nights with immaculate driving - no mean feat on the roads and with the fuel shortage - humour, warmth and consideration. He introduced us to local customs, food and experiences beyond our expectations, and gave us confidence in an unfamiliar environment. All the other guides we met along the way were also well-informed, friendly and helped to make our Cuban adventure very special.” - JF&PW travelled in February 2024

Chile

“We had a very successful trip. The itinerary worked out well and we felt we got a good sense of Chile as a whole without too many flights. We particularly enjoyed Cerro Guido, the tour around Arica province, and also enough time to relax in Santiago and see the Pre-Columbian Museum and some of the parks, based from the excellent Le Reve Hotel.” - JE travelled in November 2023

Colombia

“At the outset we wanted a trip which would include the best of Colombia and also to see some of the famous birdlife. Overall the trip was excellent and the guides and your local agents were very good. Our one day in Bogotá was perfect, Hacienda Venecia in the coffee region was an excellent choice and the highlight of the birding side of the trip was Rio Blanco Cloud Forest and the wonderful hummingbirds. Jardin was a smashing little town and the visit to see the Cock of the Rock was something else - we saw around 20! We very much enjoyed Medellin but were disappointed by Tayrona. Cartegena was very hot but I think we covered every single street in the old town, ate in some excellent restaurants and enjoyed the plunge pool at our hotel, Alfiz.” - PC travelled in November 2023

Brazil

“We have had such a brilliant holiday. Everything went like clockwork and everywhere we stayed was wonderful, on the whole. Thank you so much for organising it all for us.

Latam was a great airline, all flights on time and business class very comfortable. Pousada Literaria, Paraty was a great hotel and our guide was excellent, both around the town and on the boat trip which was huge fun. Das Cataratas, Iguassu is a great hotel and we had another excellent guide. We really enjoyed Ouro and our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable guide. We were fairly churched out by the end! The tour of the gold mine was fun. Chapada Diamentina was a highlight, we loved Pousada das Aguas and our guide was excellent, and took us on wonderful treks to views, caves and waterfalls.

All the guides were extremely good at getting us checked in at the airports and making sure we had our boarding cards, which was very helpful as online was a bit tricky! We think the length of time we spent in each place was just right. 3 nights made the long journeys between stops worthwhile and not too much of a rush. Overall an excellent holiday. Thank you very much for organising it.” - JE travelled in February 2024

Brazil

“Brazil has been a mind-blowing experience. A huge thank you for everything, the guides, hotels and drivers have all been fantastic, and the organisation superb.

Highlights for me and the family were:
The Brazilian people, so lovely, helpful and charming.
Rio, touring around with our guide and walking along Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. He was incredible and we had so much fun with him.
Paraty, the amazing hotel, rock sliding, swimming and snorkelling. Lovely guides here too.
Manaus, great tour with our local guide, a very interesting person.
The Amazon, just everything (caiman, sloths, amazing birds, monkeys, spiders, frogs, piranhas, trees, flowers, etc. etc. etc). The guides and all staff at the lodge were extremely interesting, helpful, kind and fun to be with.
Caipirinhas!

So once again, a huge thanks from us all, we have memories for a lifetime.” - LVF travelled in July 2023

Brazil

“We are back and everything went very well. Our time in Rio was busy, but we had a lovely time going to concerts in different parts of the city. Paraty was wonderful, an excellent choice. So much to do there and what a lovely place. We loved it and the trips were great. So the trip passed by in an instant! Another fantastic trip. Thank you so much. I will keep in touch.” - RB travelled in November 2023

Peru/Bolivia/Argentina/Paraguay/Brazil

“Thank you for organising our trip, we had a great time and the pace of the trip was about right. There was a lot to see but the real highlights were the Serrania de Hornacal with the rock formations and colours and also the journey across the altiplano from Tarija to Tupiza. Iguazu was, of course, spectacular but a bit more expected so didn’t stand out as much.” - PC travelled in August 2023

Costa Rica

“Overall the itinerary was great and we felt the number of night stays in each location was about right. Our local representative was absolutely great, a very good communicator and was really ‘on it’ in terms of keeping us up to date on everything. The Costa Rican people are all delightful and generally extremely welcoming and the level of spoken English was exceptional. The internal flights were good and obviously got us around quickly but we really did enjoy having the freedom to explore in our rental car. A great holiday, thank you very much for all your help and advice, and we feel that overall we did get to really explore the country which is, of course, helped by having a car to go off and do your own thing. Driving in Costa Rica was easy once you’d become accustomed to the local traits.” - SJ travelled in February 2024

Ecuador/Galapagos

“The whole trip was a highlight and so different to anything experienced before, your recommendations and selections were outstanding and faultless. Our guide in Quito also deserves an honourable mention.” - LT travelled in April 2023

Ecuador/Galapagos/Peru

“The holiday to the Galapagos and Peru was amazing and being at the end of the season meant it was not crowded anywhere and we were able to enjoy every moment and take lots of photographs minus tourists. The Galapagos Islands were unbelievable and the Beluga team looked after us really well. We were really fortunate, in that for the first three days on board there were only three couples, we all got on very well and felt very spoilt. Juan our guide was excellent and we will never forget the experience of seeing so many beautiful birds and animals. We'd seen Machu Picchu on TV and in pictures, but being in among the mountains was incredible, magical and spiritual.

We couldn't fault the arrangements you made for us and our guides were all excellent, never rushing us and able to answer our many questions. Many thanks for all of your efforts it was a well planned holiday and one we will never forget.” - RH travelled in November 2022

Argentina/Antarctica

“We're home and had a brilliant trip. We loved Buenos Aires, the cruise to Antarctica with Aurora Expeditions was fantastic and a couple of nights on an estancia in the Pampas was the perfect way to end before flying home. We were very lucky with the weather and over the moon with all elements of the cruise. There were 120 passengers on board the ship which was a very good number, and it was a nice mix of nationalities. The ship, Greg Mortimer, was very comfortable, the food was very good, and the expedition team and all the staff on board were excellent. The kayaking was great and camping on shore for a night was a unique experience. We have 1000's of photos and lots of wonderful memories. Thank you so much for all you did in helping to put the trip together - a great success.” - JD travelled in November 2023

Colombia

“As usual I think our Colombia itinerary was spot on and the service and guides were the usual high standard, and met the excellent standard we have come to expect from Last Frontiers. We were spoilt by attentive, knowledgeable and personable staff who significantly contributed to the enjoyment of our holiday! In summary: the usual excellent guides, excellent itinerary – just the right pace and timings - and no issues with regards to transfers, safety, information etc etc. All five stars as always. So that’s it.. another resounding success and a whole load of memories created – THANK YOU!!!” - IP travelled in July 2023

Costa Rica

“Thank you so so much for all of your help, it was a really special trip and I’m already missing Costa Rica. All our hotels and transfers were perfect and your itinerary suited us so well. Having the transfers all sorted made it so easy for us and I’m so grateful that our trip was planned so well and allowed us to see everything we wanted to.

Our highlights were definitely Mawamba Lodge (Tortuguero), as their staff were just brilliant and the boat trip, the town and the Caribbean Coast was beautiful. For us Arenal and La Fortuna was incredible. The waterfall was amazing (very refreshing!) and the location of the hotel, and being able to wake up and see the Volcano from the balcony was unbelievable. Of course all of our locations were outstanding and we enjoyed every single place we visited.

Everything was so easy and my only downside was that it went so quickly and I wish we had been able to spend longer there. Thank you again for all of your help, we had the best time and I have fallen in love with Costa Rica!” - BS travelled in March 2024

Ecuador/Galapagos

“We had a really enjoyable holiday and all your organisation was 1st class. There were so many highlights, its hard to pick a favourite. Last Frontiers certainly provided the best service we have ever received - you are so knowledgeable and we felt upbeat and confident about the trip from start to finish. Your guide in Quito is a very special, and very kind person who knows so much about his country - we really enjoyed being with him and he made a huge difference to our enjoyment.” - MB travelled in April 2023
