Our Travelers' Reviews

David, I'm back in the states and find myself continually reflecting upon my month in South America. I had an exceptional adventure thanks to you & SA Expeditions! You created a diverse itinerary that captured a variety of activities, some of which I hadn't even considered, but all that proved to be memorable. You provided TOP NOTCH customer service and it didn't stop there.... The tours I went on were organized, on time and the guides were knowledgeable and trustworthy. The accommodations (hotels & hostals alike) far exceeded my expectations, and the restaurants that you recommended were fantastic!
My most memorable travel adventure was during a homestay on the island of Amantani in Lake Titicaca. After touring the Uros islands, and then having lunch with our families on the island of Amantani, we were able to connect with the community. We played volleyball and soccer with the youth of the island and then spent time in the Community Center with the school aged kids. I connected with Jose, a 5 year old. He and I sat next to each other and I helped him with his Spanish. Spanish was a second language for both of us, so we got along great and his smile just melted my heart. When I got up to leave for our next activity, Jose wrapped his arms around me in a big embrace.
I won't hesitate to recommend SA Expeditions to my friends and family. You and your staff are professional, personable and knowledgeable advocates for travelers. You love what you do and that shines through in your customer service, attention to detail, patience, planning and reliability. Thank you for creating and contributing so much to my South American expedition!

David, Our trip to South America was great! We had such a blast. Patagonia was definitely a highlight! Thank you for helping us fit that portion into our trip. I can't say we were completely prepared for the wacky weather that is Patagonia, but we made it out alive, healthy and still smiling! We never would of thought it was possible to cover so much ground and still have enough energy to enjoy the journey. Thank you for your willingness to listen and to help create an experience that was right for us. Also, we can't tell you how reassuring it was to know that you were aware and watching our movement and even going as far as to calling a few hostels to make sure we checked in. Your thoughtfulness was noticed and appreciated from day one.

Dave, Just wanted to say thanks for an excellent Peru adventure! We all had a total blast and I have definitely been recommending SA Expeditions to all my friends back here in Houston. The guides Miguel and Odón were great – very knowledgeable and very friendly! They even got up with us at 3am to make it to Wayna Picchu and were instrumental in us being the first at the gate (knowing where to go once at Machu Picchu is way more important than being the first on the bus!). Also, good choice on the hotels; particularly liked the high ceilinged suites in the Andenes al Cielo!
