We love to get feedback - it helps us find out what our clients really want. Here's a random selection of comments from our past customers!


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

Peru

“What a magical trip. Perfection in every way.” - RR travelled in January 2020

Galapagos

“I have travelled fairly extensively in the last few years but I can say that the Galapagos is the most unique place I have ever visited and it was my most memorable holiday ever. Like a lot of people I have seen many TV programmes showing the fabulous wildlife in the islands but always thought that the pictures were the result of special cameras and telephoto lenses recording from a considerable distance.

To find the wildlife so very close and so utterly unafraid of humans was breath-taking and I am still having to pinch myself to make me realise it was not a dream. The courtship display of the waved albatross, frigate birds with their red throat sac, blue and red footed boobies, iguanas so numerous that it is difficult not to step on them, snorkelling with playful seals showing off their aquatic prowess and the sedate lumbering giant tortoises will long remain in my memory.

Your recommendation of the Mary Anne was spot on. As you know I had been looking for sometime for a boat that did not charge a single supplement and it was down to you that I found the Mary Anne which ticked this box. In addition, being a sailing craft, it was completely different to all the other boats sailing around the Islands which made the voyage even more spectacular. Everything on the boat was first class from the cabins, the meals, to the wonderful crew. Above all the route taken on this cruise took us to some of the more remote islands where the best of the wildlife was to be found. Other people I spoke to later in my holiday who had been on other more central cruises had not seen half the wild life that we had come across.

As to the organisational side of the trip I have nothing but praise for the excellent service provided by Last Frontiers, from the initial advice and help you gave me in the planning stage to the actual delivery of the cruise. The choice of the Wyndham hotel in Guayaquil was ideal for the short stay I had, very luxurious accommodation with a good selection of restaurants very close to the hotel. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends. Sorry to have written at such length but that is what happens when one experiences the holiday of a lifetime! Thanks again for all your help.” - PC travelled in May 2019

Peru/Chile/Argentina/Brazil

“We arrived home yesterday from an amazing three weeks in South America visiting Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil and wanted to thank you for putting together a fantastic package for us. With 9 different hotels and 6 internal flights we had anticipated a few difficulties but it is fair to say that things all ran very very smoothly. There was someone to meet and greet us at every airport and your local agents were very very helpful. All of our guides were knowledgeable and experienced and although we bonded better with some than others all, without exception, were good with some we would describe as outstanding. All the hotels met our minimum requirements, many were very very good and I'm not sure it was deliberate but if so congratulations - our first hotel and our last two were very high quality which set us up and let us down very nicely indeed. All visits/trips you booked for us were as advertised and very appropriate for us as individuals (it must be difficult for you to judge your clients - we were hungry for knowledge of local culture, history etc. but know when our appetite has been sated). Only once did we feel were were suffering from a slight sensory overload - day 6 of the Inca's - and that may well have been partly the affects of nausea related to altitude.

Before we set off we were slightly anxious about the pace of travel, the packing and unpacking etc. but it was all managed very well - all in all some very happy, well travelled clients. Thank you!” - RP travelled in October 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

Brazil/Argentina/Chile

“We had an amazing trip and have fabulous memories to treasure. Until the next adventure.” - JK travelled in August 2019

Chile

“I just want to thank you for your part (and your local partner in Chile) for making our holiday in Chile such a memorable trip. It really was a wonderful combination of luxury and adventure which has made the return to the humdrum very difficult. It's very difficult to give any constructive criticism, there isn’t much under your direct control and it would not be realistic anyway to expect perfection in a country of such great wilderness. I would class Explora Hotel (and Patagonia in particular) as more of an adventure than a resort and thanks again for arranging that for us - it was the highlight.” - RB travelled in January 2019

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

“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

Argentina

“What a joy my adventure in north-west Argentina was - wonderful time, loved the extreme landscapes (such beauty), great driver and some good pictures. I will draw breath and ring you, but I am saturated with wonderful scenery and very happy that I decided to do this trip. Very strange being back to civilization and surrounded by cars and people - I already miss the Puna and the infinite silence.” - JW travelled in January 2018

Ecuador/Galapagos/Peru

“We had a most fantastic time in Peru and the Galapagos. It was a pretty full itinerary and we felt that we never stopped running, but we enjoyed every single minute of it. Both the Galapagos Islands and Inca Peru blew our minds, but in different ways. If I had to choose three personal highlights, they would be witnessing Waved Albatrosses perform their mating ritual and tend their young at a distance of just a few paces, our first sight of Machu Picchu, and learning about life on the reed islands of Lake Titicaca.

All the staff and guides in Peru were excellent - very knowledgable, we felt that we were learning all the time and extremely patient. Having them to show us around one a one-to-one basis helped us get more of a flavour of what we were seeing than being in a large group. The stand-out person was our young guide on the Beluga yacht in the Galapagos. He was an amazing guide, filled with knowledge and kindness - an absolute star.

Your green book and other literature were extremely thorough and invaluable to us. Overall, we had the most awesome experience and will be very happy to recommend Last Frontiers to anybody interested in visiting South America. Thank you very much once again!” - DM travelled in June 2018

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

Chile/Argentina

“I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a fantastic trip for my mother and I. It was truly wonderful and exactly what she wanted. In fact it exceeded all our expectations and gave us both a very special experience that we will never forget. So thank you once again for looking after us so well and understanding what my mother wanted from this trip and delivering with great patience, care and insight. I hope we can have more adventures with you in the future. Many, many thanks.” - KG travelled in March 2018

Honeymoon to Peru and Brazil

“We had an amazing time! We felt like we really got a flavour for South America during the three weeks we were there and were able to see so many things. All the hotels and transfers were really good. We also really enjoyed the private tours we did with the local agent and felt that their staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Our highlights included our visit to Machu Picchu and staying in the Amazon (seeing and learning about the plants and animals in the rainforest).” - C&GW travelled in July 2018

Argentina

“Many thanks for your welcome home and for all your help. We arrived back safely after a really excellent trip and all the arrangements went very smoothly. Aside from the drive to and from Iruya, which was amazing if hair-raising, the highlights for both of us were probably the walk on the glacier and seeing the penguins on the Valdes peninsula. As very amateur bird lovers, it was also fabulous to see three burrowing owls on a short early evening walk behind the hotel at Tolombon. The drive to El Chalten and the views from Aguas Arriba and from the hotel in Cachi were also pretty special. Once again, very many thanks for all your input - your advice was invaluable.” - GB travelled in December 2018
