“ We feel fortunate to have selected JLA for our trip. It has proved to be one of the very best specialist tour operators we have ever had the pleasure to use and we would recommend them to anyone planning a trip to South America. From the outset, our consultant, Lina Fuller provided help, guidance and advise using her personal knowledge of our destination that turned out to be invaluable in shaping the trip and making the best use of our time and resources. We have just returned from the most excellently organised, scenic journeys of our lives and we have travelled extensively for 38 years.”
GP Tenterden. Travelled to Argentina (February 2014)
“ This was my third trip with JLA and the third time I have had a great holiday. What is really important for me is to have all the travel and tour details sorted out in advance, and this JLA does really well. We are already considering our next trip.”
BE Highgate. Travelled to Cuba (January 2014)
“ Superb and greatly varied holiday which was complex to organise and worked seamlessly thanks to Mary's advice and organisational skills. Will certainly strongly recommend JLA and use JLA again ourselves in the future if returning to South America / Central America..”
CK Edinburgh. Travelled to Chile (December 2013)
“ Brazil is a huge diverse country with many cultural and historical influences. We wanted on our relatively short holiday to travel around and experience a little of its diversity. Journey Latin America using their knowledge and local representatives put together an itinerary which gave us an excellent introduction and insight. They use local knowledgeable guides who smooth your path and give you a holiday to remember.”
MC Teddington. Travelled to Brazil (November 2013)
“ We approached JLA with an outline itinerary having looked at some options beforehand, and they very quickly produced a solid itinerary with a few new choices for us. We were able to confirm our booking soon afterwards and found all of their recommendations lived up to expectations during the trip. Ground arrangements in Argentina were pretty much flawless, so we soon gained confidence that each arrival in a new location would run like clockwork. We would happily use JLA for our next South American trip. Thank you.”
DG Inverness. Travelled to Argentina (October 2013)
“ Would definitely recommend visiting South America with Journey Latin America. Their knowledge and experience mean that all you have to do is turn up at the airport and begin to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime. Whether you join a group tour or have a tailor-made trip, every detail has been thought through and the whole trip is extremely well organised. Thank you.”
SC Chorley. Travelled to Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (September 2013)
“ JLA's experience and knowledge mean they are able to put together a tour which meets your exact requirements, which is then delivered making it a trip of a lifetime.”
ML Cardiff. Travelled to Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (August 2013)
“ Travelling with Journey Latin America always makes us feel like we are getting the real thing, not a theme park substitute!”
SM Teddington. Travelled to Cuba (July 2013)
“ We had never used a travel agent to plan a holiday before but the bespoke service we received from Journey Latin America really made our honeymoon everything we had hoped for. Their specialist knowledge helped us tailor-make the perfect holiday for our tastes. We would definitely use them again.”
TH Arsenal. Travelled to Brazil (June 2013)
“ We chose a very complicated itinerary which JLA put together for us with balance and awareness of our requirements. We couldn't fault transfers and helpfulness of guides. Hotels were generally better standard than we were expecting. Would definitely recommend JLA to others!”
MH Macclesfield. Travelled to Peru (May 2013)
“ It was great to have every aspect of our trip organised by JLA. Transfers to and from airports and hotels were really useful and took all the stress out of getting around. All of the local guides spoke very good English and were very welcoming and knowledgeable. We would happily use JLA again to organise our next South America holiday.”
NV Bethnal Green. Travelled to Brazil and Peru (April 2013)
“The Galapagos cruise was memorable in all respects and a real highlight of the trip. The Travel Consultant, Rosie, was superb and got everything right from suggestions on locations and attractions to the timing of the flights. She has a fantastic knowledge of the area and her ideas and organisation made the trip very special for us.”
LJ Nottingham. Travelled to Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (March 2013)
“This was our first trip to South America so the advice sought from JLA was important to us. Their service was professional but personal, and everything worked perfectly on what was quite a busy itinerary. Value for money was good, so we had a memorable and exciting experience for a reasonable cost. The versatile and wide ranging itineraries offered by JLA, along with the flexibility to tailor these to individual requirements using their specialist knowledge, make them the travel company I would recommend first to arrange travel to South America.”
PN Guildford. Travelled to Brazil (February 2013)
“I always look at JLA first. Everything seems to be slightly better, food, hotels, guides, overall organisation, and knowledge of where you are or are going to. Would sooner travel with JLA than other companies if the itinerary is similar.”
VB Muswell Hill. Travelled to Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (January 2013)
“The holiday was a continuous flow of vivid and unforgettable impressions: sights, colours, tastes and sounds. A continuous high.”
SR Borehamwood. Travelled to Peru (January 2013)
“We have been using JLA since 1997. We have travelled with JLA extensively and have always found the service to be of a consistently high standard. We look forward to many more years of travelling with the company. Thank you..”
GA London. Travelled to Argentina (December 2012)
“This was our first time to visit South America and finding the right tour operator was important for us. We wanted a smaller operator who could provide a more personalised service - after researching online we came across Journey Latin America who had won several travel awards and earned favourable comments in newspaper travel sections. The lady I initially spoke to on the phone became our dedicated travel consultant who was understood immediately the type of holiday we were looking to achieve and was very responsive to our questions. During the holiday itself we were pleasantly surprised at how smoothly everything went - whenever we travelled to a new location we were always immediately greeted by English speaking guides holding signs bearing our names. All the local agents used were very professional, punctual, knowledgeable and friendly. The time we spent in the Amazon jungle was amazing - it was such a unique experience that became the highlight of our trip. Journey Latin America delivered the best holiday we've ever been on and we would gladly recommend them to other people with an interest in South America.”
JW Rotherhithe. Travelled to Peru (December 2012)
“Dealing with JLA was very easy. A holiday of a lifetime organised through a few emails - no hassle at all.”
DL Ireland. Travelled to Peru and Venezuela (November 2012)
“This holiday could not have been so wonderful without the extraordinary planning & organising by Journey Latin America. We would never had covered so much ground, seen so much and enjoyed it so much without you. Everyone turned up on time, and operated at the highest standards with impeccable service and friendliness. The hotels were excellent. The food superb. BIG THANK YOU.”
FP Chelsea. Travelled to Peru (November 2012)
“This has truly been the best holiday we have had and I will always treasure the memories. The service was spectacular from the moment we landed and felt spoilt and taken care of the whole way. Our guides on the Sacred Valley, the trek in Peru and the Galapagos were resourceful and very professional. The food was always exceptional also.”
SC Dartford. Travelled to Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (October 2012)
“My previous experience with travel companies is that they are very helpful until they have your money, and pay little attention to you thereafter. Journey Latin America were completely different. The pre-travel briefing was helpful, but what impressed us the most was that the logistics were organised immaculately. Every time we arrived at an airport/hotel/bus station, we knew there would be someone waiting for us with all the information we needed. That allowed us to get on and enjoy our holiday and make the most of our time. I would recommend Journey Latin America in a second.”
SV Stepney. Travelled to Argentina, Chile and Brazil (October 2012)
“JLA is a company with unique skill in providing tours in South America. The local guides they organised, the transfers, choices of hotel were all second to none. I would not consider any other tour company in the region.”
LM Ballymena. Travelled to Argentina (September 2012)
“The whole holiday was memorable and the flow and way it had been planned was excellent - we had a build up that allowed us to visit other parts of peru, acclimatise and take in the history, culture and natural scenery before capping it off with the Inca trail and Machu Picchu!”
AB Reading. Travelled to Peru (September 2012)
“Thank you for helping us fulfil a lifelong dream. For future clients - Live the dream!”
WMC, Deeside. Travelled to Peru (August 2012)
“We enjoyed all the places we visited on our holiday in Peru, and the experience was enhanced by friendly and knowledgeable local guides. The spectacular scenery we saw will stay in our minds for quite some time”
MM Newcastle upon Tyne (August 2012)
“I have always appreciated the helpful advice and service received from JLA for all my trips. The articles in the magazine and pre-travel information always add to my excited anticipation before my journey. My trips have always lived up to expectations. I would always recommend JLA to anyone contemplating travel to Latin America”
RMH Marlborough. Travelled to Guatemala (July 2012)
“We would not hesitate in recommending JLA to anyone planning a visit to Central or South America. For a first time visitor to the area, or for anyone with limited language skills, JLA provides a safe and reassuring way of experiencing the area”
GG Banff. Travelled to Colombia (July 2012)
“JLA experts helped turn our plans into reality. They delivered a slick journey through some amazing parts of South America”

KF, Sandbach. Travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands(July 2012)
“If we ever decided to return to South America we would definitely consider JLA. This was our holiday of a lifetime fulfilling a long held desire to visit the Galapagos Islands, and it lived up to all our expectations”
SH Aylesbury. Travelled on our Galapagos Hawk Journey (June 2012)
“Would certainly recommend JLA they helped us reach the parts of our trip that we would have found hard to access and were very flexible allowing us to make our own arrangements for parts of the trip and it worked well”
BR Hornsey. Travelled to Bolivia and Peru (June 2012)
“We wanted our honeymoon to be something special to remember and Journey Latin America helped us achieve this right from the start when we were planning our trip to Brazil, right through to the perfect holiday. It could not have been better”
DG Sheffield. Travelled to Brazil (May 2012)
“Ecuador was a fantastic adventure: welcoming friendly people, beautiful landscapes and amazing wildlife. To fit in two cities, the Andes, the Amazon, the cloud forest and the Galapagos islands into a 16 day trip on a seamless itinerary was a fantastic solution provided by Sophie at JLA and we enjoyed every aspect”
GE Glasgow. Travelled to Ecuador (May 2012)
“JLA is an Amazing Journey! If you are looking for a memorable experience that is set apart from the norm you won't be disappointed. JLA can show you the way”
AH Bulkington. Travelled to Brazil and Ecuador (April 2012)
“Journey Latin America did exactly what I asked them to do, at short notice. As a result we had an exceptional Easter holiday including Semana Santa in Antigua, when I half expected to be told that I had left it too late”
SR Buckingham. Travelled to Guatemala(April 2012)
“Truly Tailormade! An awesome, exciting yet stress-free holiday! If you want to do Latin America in style - go with JLA!”
SD Morden. Travelled to Chile and Argentina (April 2012)
“A trip with JLA is a trip with the local experts. They can respond quickly to challenges such as FCO advice not to visit an area and know the local people who can make the holiday really memorable. One other comment about Colombia - the people we encountered, of all ages, in the streets, shops, hotels etc were friendly, welcoming and the most polite I have met anywhere in the world!”
HR Brentford. Travelled on our
Weaverbird Discovery Journey. (March 2012)
“We found Journey Latin America extremely friendly, helpful, patient and knowledgeable. We were very impressed with their pre-emptive approach to problems and issues, which were beyond their control, that arose before and during our 6 week trip. They worked as a team to resolve issues quickly and make excellent alternative arrangements. We had confidence in JLA from our first contact which proved well founded throughout the trip. We would have no hesitation in recommending them”
RD Faversham. Travelled to Brazil,Chile and Argentina (March 2012)
“A wonderful holiday but more than that, a wonderful experience, made so much easier by the competence and efficiency of Journey Latin America. Thank you, we look forward to travelling with you in the future”
REW, Gaerwen. Travelled to Brazil (February 2012)
“Overall, we feel that the experience, expertise and efficiency of Journey Latin America were paramount in the unqualified success of our trip. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to our family and friends. The travel and transport arrangements made on our behalf were faultless”
CN, Chester-le-Street. Travelled to Chile(February 2012)
“A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!”
LH Pinner. Travelled to Peru(January 2012)
“The itinerary put together was outstanding - it was very diverse so we really saw and did a lot and found our holiday to be thoroughly fulfilling. Knowledge of travel, geography, accommodation, sites and everything was very in depth and all transfers and extensive travel arrangements were managed seamlessly. JLA recommendations was also a very useful resource.”
LH Pinner. Travelled to Argentina,Chile and Brazil(January 2012)
“As a first time traveller to Central America, I can't stress enough how pleasurable Journey Latin America made Mexico for us. We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingos, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida. We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you again.”
LH Pinner. Travelled to Mexico(December 2011)
“For us this was a great adventure. It was multi-faceted, with an emphasis on the geography and zoology of the places we visited and throughout our high expectations were met and often exceeded. Your excellent advice and dossiers were really appreciated.”
RS Southampton. Travelled to Argentina,Chile and Brazil(December 2011)
“JLA provided first class, personalised service, with carefully thought out recommendations and first class advice and pre-trip briefing. We felt throughout that we were in the hands of professionals who had a real passion for the region we were going to visit.”
KE Richmond. Travelled to Argentina(November 2011)
“A wonderful trip which was well arranged and reflected exactly the itinerary we required. Every aspect of the trip went to plan, the hotels selected were good and some were outstanding and along the way we met some charming and helpful guides who made the excursions so memorable.”
JN Epsom. Travelled to Argentina and Brazil(November 2011)
“Both Sophie Barber and all of the JLA agents overseas were wonderful in ensuring our holiday ran smoothly and was completely stress free. We were all extremely impressed with JLA and you are probably one of the best, if not the best, holiday company we have ever used. Hopefully in the future we will return to South America and we would use JLA again. We will certainly recommend JLA to anyone we know wishing to visit this part of the world. Thank you from us all for a great trip.”
JS Salisbury . Travelled to Argentina and Brazil(November 2011)
“I would definitely use Journey Latin America again. I normally do it all myself, but now I have seen the light. With limited time for such a vast country I did not waste precious time organising transfers/tours or have any unexpected costs it was incredible relaxing having it planned with expert knowledge of the country and such smooth transfers - always on time, safe drivers, and some gems of knowledge too. The advice Lina gave me along the way was invaluable for getting as much out of my journey as possible. Thank you so much.”
HC Bath. Travelled to Peru(October 2011)
“JLA are the perfect choice if you want to visit South America. Without exception, the itinerary that they provided us perfectly matched the (pretty vague) requirements that we provided to them. There were no aspects of the trip that we, with hindsight, would have removed. It was all so easy and we could concentrate on absorbing the experience rather than worrying about anything else.”
TH Preston. Travelled to Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil(October 2011)
“This was our second visit to South America with JLA. The organisation was again superb with our drivers, guides and representatives waiting for us at the prescribed times and locations. We have great confidence in JLA, in their knowledge of the continent and their ability to identify and use reliable companies to look after those who choose to travel with them.”
AH Doncaster. Travelled to Venezuela and Ecuador(October 2011)
“We have used Journey Latin America for several trips in the region and cannot recommend the service highly enough. Guides have all been excellent and really add to the experience, and it is fantastic to know that you will always be met by a knowledgeable and friendly local expert on arriving at a new destination. The choice of hotels and the itinerary proposed showed again that the company understands what we look for in a holiday. I would always look to use JLA when travelling in the region in future.”
MJ Tower Hamlets. Travelled to Colombia(September 2011)
“The whole holiday was brilliantly organised and we were looked after by local drivers guides and hotel staff far better than we expected. A wonderful holiday.”
AB Aberystwyth. Travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands(September 2011)
“The performance of Mary Anne Nelson was beyond praise, and even when she fell ill for a time, the back-up could not be faulted. The ability to rise to the unexpected is one of the great strengths of the company.”
AD Oxford. Travelled to Chile and Bolivia(September 2011)
“As soon as I spoke to someone on the phone I felt I was dealing with a company that new Latin America very well and had their customers best interests at heart.”
HM Skelmorlie. Travelled to Argentina and Peru(August 2011)
“We were so impressed by the service. We felt completely looked after and supported during our holiday. Everyone was reliable and kind and seemed to really care that we were having a great time and liked Costa Rica. It was a brilliant introduction to Latin America. We loved the animals, the climate, the geography, the people, the food and the amazing hotels. Thanks to Sophie for putting such a fantastic trip together for us. Was perfect for us and our kids, we all got so much out of it and loved doing it together.”
LW Hampstead. Travelled to Costa_Rica(August 2011)
“This was our first Tailor-made trip and we were pleasantly surprised at the level of service provided. Our itinerary involved several transfers (pickups from airports, etc) and we assumed this would simply be a taxi to meet us and drop us at the hotel - we did not realise we would have a guide to check us in at airports and hotels and accompany us on the road transfers (e.g. Sucre to Potosi). Everything was made extremely easy for us.”
DJ Cardiff. Travelled to Chile and Bolivia (August 2011)
“In 2008 we used JLA to create the first leg of our three-month trip around the world. I have to admit that South America was the part of the trip that I was looking forward to the least. Two visits later I am completely taken with the South American highlands, and I can't wait to go back. JLA has done an excellent job both times, and I don't see any reason why I would use anyone else for future travel. In fact I rather wish JLA would expand to include global travel with the same ethics of service and responsibility.”
ES California. Travelled to Peru (August 2011)
“Overall a great trip to Cuba - we have been intermittent but loyal JLA clients over a scary number of years now, and this one confirms you as The People for Latin American travel.”
SB Cobham. Travelled to Cuba (August 2011)
“As we have come to expect the arrangements made by JLA were meticulous and we had a wonderful and thought-provoking holiday.”
SJ Cambridge. Travelled to Peru (July 2011)
“Our holiday was perfectly planned and executed. All the excursions were interesting and enjoyable. Well done and thank you.”
LH Wimbledon. Travelled to Peru (July 2011)
“Journey Latin America looked after us extremely well. They put together an itinerary which suited our needs ideally and provided us with a truly memorable experience. They also came up trumps when we needed to alter our arrangements part way through the trip.”
ND Lewes. Travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands July 2011)
“A most enjoyable holiday with first class assistance whilst planning, excellent local representation and travel arrangements and very good hotels.”
DC Crewe. Travelled to Peru (June 2011)
“Thank you for an amazing holiday which we will long remember. The Andes Crossing will stay in our minds for ever - such a pristine land with no pollution and so few people! We loved the people and the places and we truly hope that they will treasure their land and their refreshing way of life.”
JL Cambridge. Travelled to Chile and Argentina (June 2011)
“Sophie was incredibly helpful throughout, tailoring the trip to just what we needed. The communication was great, from the start ensuring that we had exactly what we required and the detail in the briefing pack was very useful. Thank you for all the help and I will not hesitate to recommend your services.”
SB St. Albans. Travelled to Peru (June 2011)
“I had the most marvellous holiday in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. The hotel in Quito was just perfect, set very close to the centre of the old quarter, but once in side cut off from any noise, the staff were very kind and helpful and the rooms were kept in an immaculate condition. I found travelling around Quito very easy on the buses and even say the president of Ecuador on Independence Day.

The Eclipse cruise was great and again the staff were very kind and attentive. To stand on the Islands where Darwin had once stood felt fantastic. You could see all kinds of animals in there natural habitat even white tipped sharks swimming around the ship one night. The cruise went too quickly for me and I could have stayed on board for another few weeks. Thanks for all your kindness and help.”
SP, Harrow. Travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands (May 2011)
“Our experience with JLA was positive. All internal transfer arrangements worked well with helpful and friendly drivers/couriers. It was also reassuring that a contact telephone number was printed on our itinerary for use within Brazil should we have needed any help.”
EG Epsom. Travelled to Brazil (May 2011)
“We dealt with Ben Line and it was a last minute trip request for our Honeymoon. Ben not only made great recommendations on where to travel in Costa Rica, but also on where to stay. His suggestion to add a visit to Tortuguero to our trip was the fantastic, definite highlight of the holiday.”
ST Swords. Travelled to Costa-Rica (May 2011)
“I would have no hesitation in recommending the company and we will in future certainly use you again. Everything that was arranged happened to time which for what I had been told about Mexico pleasantly surprised me. All in all a fantastic experience.”
BH Tonbridge. Travelled to Mexico (May 2011)
“We were highly impressed by how smooth the organisation of the whole holiday was. Being miles away from the UK you wonder if people will turn up on time to meet you to take you on a transfer from one place to the next, but every time they were ready before us and so helpful, thank you.”
IL Salford. Travelled to Belize (April 2011)
“JLA seem to understand the balance of showing you a good slice of somewhere new but not at such an unrelenting rate that you need a holiday when you get back.”
JL Walsingham. Travelled to Cuba (April 2011)
“This is the fourth time we have had a bespoke holiday with JLA and each time has felt like an exceptional experience. Really tailored to what we wanted and what we were led to expect was what we got. First rate, especially important in the third world. We'll be back in future years.”
CA Amersham. Travelled to Chile, Argentina and Brazil(April 2011)
“Your representative listened to what I wanted to do and tried to come up with the best option at a reasonable price. I was travelling alone and your rep. was patient and understanding about my concerns.”
JG Gerrards Cross. Travelled to Ecuador and Galapagos Islands(April 2011)
“We would certainly use JLA again - we had a fantastic holiday and felt you were very in tune with what we were looking for. Thank you!... The hotels were well selected and certainly met what we'd asked for - small, boutique hotels with charm, character and comfort”
LW Nottingham. Travelled to Argentina and Chile(March 2011)
“Thanks again for making it such a great trip. Tom Manchester was very helpful, but I appreciated that fact that you were around to help when I was in the back of beyond”
PY Teddington. Travelled to Argentina (March 2011)
“It was good to be able to discuss alternative options with someone who knew all about them, especially when our own knowledge is negligible, and then to receive revised itineraries very quickly…THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CREATING SUCH A BRILLIANT BRAZILIAN BONANZA OF A HOLIDAY FOR US and a SPECIAL THANK YOU to LINA”
PS Chesham. Travelled to Brazil (February 2011)
“Tom was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and flexible in accomodating our requirements”
PR Reading. Travelled to Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Colombia (February 2011)

EW Berkhamsted. Travelled to Brazil, Argentina and Antarctica (February 2011)
“Holidays can be stressful especially going away for a month and trying to achieve all that we set out to do. Jo and I would like to thank all at JLA for your help in making the experience truly wonderful and something we’ll never forget. We have travelled fairly extensively over the years but this trip was the BEST”

“Sophie Barber was a delight to get to know. She had endless patience for our questions and deliberations and I felt we had a very personal and friendly service. Extremely efficient and highly professional”
JB Abingdon. Travelled to Argentina, Chile and Brazil (January 2011)
“I do think your company is exceptional. I have had good service from other travel companies but never the personal, caring service I have received from yours. The detailed knowledge of your travel consultants because they have actually visited the places and know them well attracted me to your company and however detailed my question Gemma could always answer it. I thought Gemma was exceptional in everything she did. She planned a wonderful tailor made holiday for us and there was never a hitch in the organisation, the only problem being when the Argentinean airline cancelled a flight which was beyond your control. I did think Gemma might be unique but after we were stranded and had to deal with you and briefly with Hannah, I realised that you are all equally good. We soon realised on the holiday that we could relax knowing that everything was going to run smoothly, which added greatly to our enjoyment. While on holiday we met a couple who had been let down by another company and at the last minute they were able to re-book with you for the same dates. They were so impressed that they booked their next holiday with you too. Thank you again for helping us to have such an amazing and trouble free holiday.”
HC Hereford. Travelled to Argentina and Brazil (December 2010)

SC Worcester. Travelled to Peru, Bolivia and Chile(October 2010)
“I had a great time, will certainly recommend JLA to others, and was particularly grateful to Megan for her help with planning my trip...The consultant was excellent in every respect, taking full account of my changing plans (as I was trying to co-ordinate it with a business trip to Peru.)”
CP Swindon. Travelled to Peru (October 2010)
“We are so pleased we opted to go with JLA rather than attempt to do the trip on our own. The service throughout was impeccable, nothing could be faulted from the moment we contacted JLA to book the trip, to the end.”
SO Ipswich. Travelled to Peru (September 2010)
“This was a superb and well organised holiday. Mary Anne Nelson provided excellent advice and was efficient and effective in putting together the proposals as well as executing the arrangements. Thank you very much Mary.”
PL Sutton. Travelled to Brazil (September 2010)
“It was clear Hannah knew a lot about the region and her enthusiasm was infectious..We had a couple of small queries which were dealt with really quickly and helpfully - we certainly felt we could ask questions.”
PF Chiswick. Travelled to Costa-Rica (September 2010)
“The holiday as a whole was terrific – definitely will go down as one of the best. Everyone we met was helpful and all the local reps were great, knowledgeable, not too many facts and figures, always on time and perfect itinerary.”
VB Watford. Travelled to Brazil (August 2010)
“I would like to thank Mary Anne for her patience and cheerfulness in putting together what was probably a relatively complicated programme, dealing with our idiosyncrasies and very particular wishes - in particular when we ordered "off menu". We absolutely ended up with an itinerary that met our needs to the letter. Because of the length of the itinerary we had to do some trimming on cost and therefore had a mix of standards of accommodation, but we always ended up with the right facilities in the right place, and in particular the right balance between family rooms and adjoining rooms. Mary Anne seemed to get right "inside our heads" and was very reassuring in response to our many questions. A big thank you to her for all her organisation and support.”
DH Biggar. Travelled to Peru, Bolivia and Chile(August 2010)
“Hannah Burwell was very well informed and helpful. She answered our many questions and concerns promptly and fully. Her input was critical in our decisions about how to organize our trip, and was probably critical in our decision to go with JLA.”
BB Hampstead.Travelled to Peru (August 2010)
“Sean Rhodes was excellent. Very many thanks to Sean in London – excellently helpful, patient, good suggestions, flexible, organised our trip brilliantly.”

“Pass on my thanks to Laura. She coped very skilfully with all my questions and is responsible in no small way for the success of our holiday.”
DW Lingfield. Travelled to Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands(June 2010)
“Thank you so much for booking things for us. We had a wonderful trip to Brazil and everything worked really well. We were never left waiting by people who did not turn up, all the guides were very friendly and helpful and the accommodation comfortable”
AG, Manchester. Travelled to Brazil (June 2010)
“First of all a great trip - everything worked like clockwork - planes, trains, coaches, guides and connections. Very professional and great service. The holiday was excellent and everything impeccable - food, sites, and people! I would like to say just how impressed I was with you and your company - you put this holiday together in 48 hours and were great to deal with.”
TC, London. Travelled to Peru (May 2010)
“Thanks for a brilliant trip, and especially thanks for the work you did to rearrange everything when the volcanic ash postponed our start date by a week.  Moving our first week to the end (backwards) worked wonderfully, although I’m sure it can’t have been easy for you with all the other people’s re-arrangements you must have been faced with at the time!.The way you responded to the flight disruption caused by Volcanic ash was Absolutely Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!  I say how good you were to everyone I talk to about my holiday!!!”
DM Leatherhead. Travelled to Peru (May 2010)

EB, Uxbridge. Travelled to The Galapagos Islands (May 2010)
“Dear Caroline, I would like to take the opportunity personally to thank you for arranging such a fantastic trip to Guatemala and Belize.  Everything worked perfectly, travel connections, hotels, and the guides were both knowledgeable and good company... ...We are both very keen to travel to that part of the world again and when we do, you will certainly hear from us.”
