What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Long way to go but thoroughly enjoyed just concentrating on one country i.e. Chile which our destinations covered in detail from top to toe and made us feel that we had really experienced life in Chile.CF, Worthing
I was amazed and enthralled by Chile and am looking forward to visiting again.DP, Chiswick
Most Memorable Moment: "Too many to mention!Perhaps Champions parade in Rio - front row seats - fabulous! May be Torres del Paine - fabulous hotel Tierra Patagonia- outstanding scenery. Memorable moment -perhaps driving around Lake Llanquihue gradually seeing the mist clear to beautiful clear blue skies and lake and seeing The Osorno Volcano appear with low cloud drifting across its centre just as we across a very pretty lakeside café with no one there and being able to sit in the warm sunshine quite alone and enjoy the most spectacular view."JM, Wantage
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
Being served Pisco Sours on the deck of the boat at Grey Glacier. The scenery was stunning and came as a surprise after the poor visibility on the outward trip.AM, Glasgow
The excursions in Torres de Paine were exceptional.AD, Cambridge
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
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
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
Highlight?: Easter Island and seeing the moai statues was a lifelong dream and did not disappoint. The guide was excellent a fantastic and beautiful island.LVA, Tamworth
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
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
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, Trowbridge
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. 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. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
Chile felt safe and modest, a delight to visit.NH, Bridgewater
Highlights:- Chile was just fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both Patagonia and Atacama. Really quite memorable.MR

Overall 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.SJ, Welwyn
Highlights: "Watching the Milky Way in Elquis Valley."MA, Lancaster
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
We really enjoyed Easter Island but the Atacama was the most memorable part!ME, Caernarfon

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
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
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
