Brazil

“Thank you so much for organising another fantastic holiday in Brazil!! You asked if there were any highlights which is an impossible question as it was pretty well all special. I would say Rio, Iguassu, the Pantanal and Salvador old town, but that doesn’t belittle any of the other places. Your local agents were excellent and we had some very good guides. Thank you again for arranging another fantastic holiday, so pleased to finally get there two years later than originally planned!” - SH travelled in May 2022

Guyana

“Wow, what a holiday! Guyana is a truly beautiful country and my family were absolutely amazed by it. The boat trip down the Essequibo River was fantastic, Iwokrama River Lodge was an unexpected wonder, and the hospitality & welcome was superb as was the enthusiasm by the team there.

Onward to Atta Rainforest Lodge. A candle lit dinner in the open in the middle of the rainforest will not be soon forgotten. Once again, the entire team & guides were wonderful with us all.

Finally Kaieteur Falls.. mind-blowingly amazing! Firstly the flight over the miles & miles of 'broccoli', then the first sight of the Falls as we circled it brought gasps from everyone. Why don't more people know of Kaieteur? It is truly powerful and a real wonder.

Ed, it was a truly memorable trip that more than exceeded my hope & expectations. A huge 'thank you' from us all to all of you!” - DS travelled in August 2022

Mexico

“Thank you for your help navigating travel changes and hotel recommendations, we would be happy to use your company post Covid for future travel plans and to recommend you to our friends.” - SJ travelled in June 2021

Chile/Argentina

“We arrived home this morning after such a great trip! Thank you, it was beautifully planned - with enough downtime to recover from all the excitements!

Although there was a lot of travelling, it all went like clockwork, and it did mean we saw so much and got a flavour of each country. Good guides too, and we were particularly fortunate with the young man who looked after us in the Atacama - he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We were a little apprehensive about the Tango evening in Buenos Aires, having been to some gruesome ‘local culture’ events in other countries, but it was brilliant and very well done, good food too, so altogether a winner. The whole thing was a great success, so thanks again from us both.” - JK travelled in January 2020

Costa Rica

“Thanks for all you and Sue did for us, we’re full of praise for the lovely holiday you arranged for us both and have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and relations. Pura Vida!” - TS travelled in March 2022

Peru

“Thank you for your email and homecoming welcome from our journey in Peru. It was a most wonderfully absorbing and organic trip and I’m still processing it. It was organic in its very nature - a group of disparate travellers responding to one person’s dream on the one hand, and an exciting gamble into the world of adventure on the other. Of course, none of us were archaeologists in the real sense but I felt we came close to it through our experience. We were well looked after and the hotels were welcoming and comfortable. One or two in the more inaccessible areas were more simple than others, but they were perfectly adequate and I enjoyed being closer to the spirit of Peru.

Our guides were excellent - all three were local, very professional and friendly. They shared with us their passion for their country and their interest in its history. They were educated, well informed and lively. Our guide in the north, who was with us for ten days or so, gave of herself totally, making sure that we were looked after and experienced Peruvian hospitality. The programme was extremely full, if anything a bit relentless. Some of the journeys were very long and there was little time for absorbing and reflecting on our experiences. On the other hand, the sites were distant from each other and by travelling so far we gained a picture of Peru which we might otherwise have missed. From the coastal desert, to the dry hills, to the green valleys into the Andes and the snow capped mountains it was stunning.

The archaeological sites were extraordinary and I was still fascinated when we came to number eleven. Each had its particular revelations and I came home feeling that I had been in the company of ancient peoples who were ever alive and just like me. The past was in the present. This was an ambitious trip, and in some ways we were pioneers, but it worked and will remain with me for a long time. Thank you.” - ES travelled in August 2019

Costa Rica

“Costa Rica was amazing, we absolutely loved it. Thank you so much for all your help and hard work organising everything. The volunteering was great, certainly ‘at one’ with nature because we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. We only saw one turtle but the hosts were lovely. Very, very glad we did it and thank you for your help researching where to go. During the rest of the holiday everything ran very smoothly. The hotels were beautiful, spotless accommodation and accommodating hosts. All the staff, from the transfer drivers to the ones working at the hotels went out of their way to be helpful. The guides on the tours were excellent too. Thanks so much again. ” - EW travelled in July 2022

Chile

“We had the most marvellous time in Chile. The guides looked after us well, and all arrived bang on time, were courteous and attentive. Of course the loss of the rest of our trip was out of everyones control, and a great shame, but we had a grand holiday nonetheless. We did feel you held our hands for us as the need to exit loomed, and we very much appreciate having our flights sorted.

Any clients going to Santaigo are firmly recommended to find time for Valparaiso in our opinion. We ate at some wonderful restaurants - lunch on the terrace at La Conception was a high point, as was lunch at Tres Pesces. The Art Nouveau Palacio Baburizza is wonderful, and the street art in this part of town is amazing - so many photos! We failed to make the bus system work for us, enjoyed the funicular, but walking to Pablo Neruda’s house was worthwhile and straightforward (getting anywhere on foot with a good pair of lungs is no problem!)

We are so pleased we included Chiloe. We did a whistle-stop tour of 6 of the wooden churches and it was a great reason to drive through the bonny countryside and onto Achao island. If we had more time a drive to the west coast would have been nice, but we did go to Punihuil in the north to see the tail end of the penguin season which was certainly worth the trip, more soo earlier in the season. Good roads for the entirely of our driving, and where we did use dirt tracks the car coped beautifully.

We drove from Puerto Varas to Petrohue via the falls and the river (wow! no wonder you put the photo on your bookmark!) and then took a walk in the sunshine on the volcano Osorno, finishing with a drive up to the ski resort to enjoy the sundown views. The Alerce Andino National Park was a high spot and we had a glorious walk in the woods. It was thrilling to see birds and frogs here. Before flying out we drove to Frutilar for the morning which was a lovely drive, town a bit cheesy, exploiting the german past but still nice.

The transfer from Punta Arenas to Torres del Paine was for just 4 of us, and we saw flamingos and rheas on the way. It included a stop at an estancia, with a tour of the old farmhouse and a lamb asado barbecue so that was great! A long road trip but road was good and views wonderful, we had clear skies all day. Excursions were all fabulous - to Grey Lake on the boat, the French Valley, and a shorter day trip to view the Torres. Gobs well and truly smacked!” - AC travelled in March 2020

Peru

“The trip was amazing. The planning and execution were nearly flawless and it was exactly what we were looking for: a real introduction to Peru, with the cities, Amazon rain forest, and above all the Andes with high-altitude trekking, Inca history, an introduction to the people, culture and cuisine.

The Lares Trek was the highlight of the trip. I can’t express how amazing it was from beginning to end, and I can’t thank you enough for recommending this. The number 1 success factor was our guide - I have rarely met such a wonderfully warm, genuine, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and just all-around excellent human being. The trek itself was glorious. I was a little nervous about my ability to get through it, but in the end it was totally manageable.

The vistas, the vast spaces, the mountains, the camelids, the people we saw and met - I thought I was prepared but everything was beyond my expectations. I felt a real peace and joy during those walks that I have rarely felt at any other time. The Inca trail and Machu Picchu were also fantastic. These are more touristy and not as awe-inspiring as the vast solitude of the Lares trek itself, but they are extraordinary and we are so happy to have experienced them!

I can barely begin to describe the wonders of the trip and just how good everything was at every step of the way! I cannot recall a vacation that was so smooth and so wonderful, and that is really thanks to Last Frontiers and your great planning, ideas, contacts, and responsiveness to our needs.” - HD travelled in August 2019

Argentina

“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

Chile

“We had a fantastic trip to Chile and loved every minute of it. We were lucky because we had glorious sunshine for all of the 3 weeks we were there. All your suggested areas worked very well for us and the highlight of our trip was Patagonia - I am very glad that we decided to go there as part of our trip. All the people we dealt with from your local agent were excellent and very helpful. We also were very happy with all the hotels we stayed at, the best one was definitely the Tierra Patagonia, and we had very good rooms in each hotel. We would love to visit other parts of South America” - DC travelled in November 2018

Peru

“Peru is a beautiful country. We enjoyed a very packed and eventful exploration of approximately 11 ancient sites from 4,000 BC to 800 AD of amazingly preserved temples, cities and dwellings, from the coastal deserts near Lima, up into the mountains in north-western Peru. The often long gruelling bus journeys were rewarded by such a wonderful archaeological richness that, by the end, it was as if we were participating in a sort of travel back in time through imaginative recreation of those earliest settlements and civilisations – their social organisation, hieratic structures and pre emptive rituals to ward off the ever lurking threat of deluge, food shortage, disease, famine and earthquake. Our days of dusty archaeological site visits were finally rewarded by the astonishing richness of artefacts on display in private collections at the Sipan, Amana and Larco Museums. Along the way we were privileged to have inspiring talks with site archaeologists and, despite a few minor hiccups, our hotels were comfortable and our guides excellent in their knowledge of the areas we visited. Many thanks for organising this extensive trip for us.” - AG travelled in August 2019

Costa Rica

“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

Peru

“Thank you for your huge part in putting together this unique, tailored trip to ancient sites in Peru, and adjusting the schedule when necessary and adding things which made people feel very cared for. The trip was so fulfilling, I was wowed by many of the sites and loved Chavín de Huántar, but many of the other sites too including Pacopampa and Wilcahuain, plus many of the museums. Our main guide was a wealth of information and it was very moving to hear her talk about the devastation wrought by natural disasters and their impact on communities past and present. The contact with the archaeologists was a huge asset too - I'm really thankful for you enabling that.” - MR travelled in August 2019

Chile/Argentina

“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
