What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
Most memorable experience: "Sailing across the Magelllan Straits and getting off on Cape Horn. This was the key reason for my trip which was motivated by a dim and distant history lesson when I was 12 years old. To think that these treacherous waters were navigated and discovered by sailors in wooden boats over 500 years ago has always been a magical thought. Doing it in the comfort of 21st century luxury was a much better option for me but to think that I have walked in the footsteps of Magellan and later Darwin is quite something else."TEB, Grays
Chile is a very safe, friendly and beautiful country.CP, Budleigh Salterton
Numerous memories but seeing a puma emerge from bushes 10 paces or fewer away from us when returning from Mirador las Torres. It totally ignored us but gave us some shaky photos.EG, Hereford
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
The lasting impressions of this great country will be with me forever. So will the fantastic photos and memories.PC, Hereford
So many highlights- Tatio geyser, base of Torres del Paine walk, seeing puma and Easter Island memories for lifeHM, Bristol
Highlight?: Patagonia campMM, Southsea
Highlights: The Explora hotel experience and the Perito Moreno glacierBT, Surbiton
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
From the point of view of JLA's organisation of our trip, the most memorable feature was the quality of the many small hotels we stayed in and the unforgettable views we so often had from our rooms. From the point of view of the trip itself, the most memorable places were 6 days of Torres del Paine in glorious sunshine and the indescribably wild and beautiful Southern Ocean.KB, Esher
Highlights: Valparaiso was stunning and Vina Santa Cruz a pleasant, relaxing surprise.MS, Shaftesbury
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM
Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
A truly memorable trip all round because of the contrasts very difficult to pick the most memorable but Valparasio Casa Higueras we would have loved to have stayed longer and in Vina del Mar.DS, Chesham
Chile Best parts of the holiday: “Too many to name one but certainly Moon Valley, the salt lake lagoon, the Glacier at Torres de Paine”SJ, Welwyn
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
Highlights:- Chile was just fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both Patagonia and Atacama. Really quite memorable.MR
We loved all of southern Patagonia but four days at the Explora was undoubtedly the highlight.NM, London
Our experience at Patagonia Camp was the most memorable part of the trip. Everyone at the camp really cared for the place and the experience they were providing for their clients, from the restaurant staff to the reception staff to the guides. They were all delightful to deal with and the guides in particular deserve special mention for their knowledge and commitment to the preservation of the TdP National Park and the ethos of the camp.RE, Knutsford
Patagonia for its stark beauty, stunning snow covered mountains and tranquility.SB, Solihull
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult! Vulcan Osorno, Moon Valley (even if not part of the arranged itinerary!), Tatio Geysers, Easter Island statues...RW, High peak
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the trip or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten degrees. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was, standing in silence at the Pia Glacier.RW, Cyprus
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
We have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.AK, Stoke Newington
