This is the real deal. I'm so glad I found them! We had an absolutely amazing trip to Morocco thanks to you and the local expert who helped put together a great itinerary for an ideal and personalized experience exploring the country. This is a great option for group travel and for a customized experience. I honestly have no complaints. Everyone we worked with was very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend them and I hope to plan another trip with you again!

We have just completed a four week trip to India. We are used to travelling independently and this was the first time we have had a driver and guides. The local agent suggested an itinerary based on our initial thoughts, some of which were a little unusual. They worked hard to tweak things as we firmed our plan up. We could not fault the organisation on the ground from the moment we arrived in Delhi to leaving (and to be honest, I usually find something to complain about!). The local agent, Prem, made contact everyday to ensure everything was as expected and even accommodated a late change to our plans when in Varanasi. Price and service were impressive.

Had a great six weeks. Everything went pretty smoothly, bar a couple of minor niggles to be expected on a trip like this, and which were responded to well.

I have been using the books for a long time for planning and preparing our trips, but I did not realize until now that they offer planning services online. I contacted them for my recent trip to Costa Rica and I found it extremely usefull to have someone locally to help me plan and book activities. Roberto did a great job at understanding our needs and interest. He was always available and responded quickly to our request or enquiries. He introduced us to local resources (Tour operators and private shuttle services) and booked everything for us. We made certain last minute changes once in the country. It was like having a personnal assistant available on demand. We enjoyed the activities and the tour operators were very friendly and professional. I will definitely call on their services next time I am planning a trip.

The service did a great job, the excursions and accommodations let some things to be desired. The accommodations were less than “luxury” as represented , that being said they were adequate. We booked a night excursion to go see turtle nesting, and were told by the guides they had come and gone a couple of weeks earlier ... and it’s timed on the moon and ride, so why book the excursion. The snorkeling excursion was in a bay with very choppy water and therefore very limited visibility. Our guide stayed on the beach and told us where to go by pointing, didn’t matter as you couldn’t see anything. All that being said the trip was wonderful and the area and people were great. After our first experience, I didn’t feel the need to check up on them when booking. In hindsight some personal investigations would have led me to limit the excursions that were booked. Roberto did a good job, they should maybe look into their excursion providers a little more! Love , Love Costa Rica!
