“We had a fantastic trip to Cuba and would HIGHLY recommend Rough Guides and our local guide Ihosvany. We saw tons, learned so much, and found the whole experience to be eye-opening, and educational. THIS is the best way to experience Cuba. Food was fantastic (be sure to eat in the private restaurants)”

“Rough Guides hooked me up with a local tour operator to help plan a trip to Colombia. The experience was excellent! I got exactly what I wanted, recommendations, tours, transportation arrangements etc. The local operator was very good at back and forth exchanges, asked great questions to help with recommendations that suited our travel plans and style. The local tour arranger, Nick, also checked on us multiple times via Whatsapp during the trip to ensure things were going as planned. He also had great tips for foods to try, and insider information. Couldn't have been more pleased and plan to use Rough Guides for any travel outside the USA”

“Tamar from Rough Guides was more than helpful through the whole process from planning to execution. Tamar kept in touch with us constantly and even when another company, a cruise line, we were working with let us down while in Ecuador, Tamar and his local guide took up the slack and helped us amazingly. In addition to Tamar, the local guide, Sebastian Carrera, was amazing. In short, he was great!! Please see our review of him on Trip Advisor. Overall, an amazing trip that happened thanks to Rough Guides. ”

“Thank you for using Travelio in Tokyo to plan and organise our trip to Japan. We were extremely impressed with their professionalism and the detail they provided us to make our trip flawless and uncomplicated. They stayed connected with us throughout our trip via WhatsApp and met us In Shinjuku station when we had a short changeover between trains so that we would not miss the connection. They greeted us on our arrival and farewelled us on our departure. I thoroughly commend especially Yasuko and Toshi for their excellent service. We also felt that the cost of the trip was very reasonable and the quality of accommodation exceptional. Thank you for referring us to them.”
