Incredible Safari Experience! January 2017


Global Basecamps Company Reviews

Andres from Global Basecamps helped organize a safari for my husband and I in Tanzania. The entire experience was incredible and we could not have been more pleased with the service Global Basecamps provided in terms or listening to what we were seeking and helping to ensure the trip met our needs. The local guide company they used was great and we enjoyed all of our accommodations. Overall, I would highly recommend them to a friend and we will use them again if we book another guided tour.

A well planned trip that met out expectations. January 2017


Global Basecamps Company Reviews

Our trip to Japan went very well, and met our expectations completely, and even exceeded them at times. We liked the varied selection of hotels, and always they were as described. We most enjoyed the Ryokan in Takayama, not surprisingly. We loved the building and baths, and were especially impressed with the renovation - beautifully done and making for very comfortable conditions. The inn keepers were so kind and welcoming, gracefully explaining the "house rules," such as where not to wear shoes, and that our meals would be served in our room. The meals were incredible.
All our guides were good, but we most enjoyed and appreciated the expertise of our guide in Kyoto, Yayoi Ooka. She was well-informed and most personable. We felt we became friends by the end of the tour. She showed us the real gems of the city, and how to get around on the buses and subway.
We weren't sure ahead of time about the visit to the Tondaya Machiya, but ended up liking this excursion very much because the young woman who did the tea ceremony (along with an extensive tour of the historic home) was exceedingly serious, knowledgable and professional.
We liked the order of visits to the various cities, because we felt we saw a range of life and geography in Japan. We liked the combination of public transportation you put together, and so appreciated having many of the tickets ahead of time. We did a lot of walking which we wanted to do. So, the rigor was just right.

Bottom line is that we had a wonderful time, guides and accommodations were excellent and we were impressed that your local tour operator, had our backs. January 2017


A Taste of Myanmar

All of our interactions with Toni and Jen were totally professional. Your rapid responses were appreciated, since we were working on a relatively abbreviated time line. We realize that we're pretty nit-picky and demanding in a way that differs from your usual cliental since we're much more comfortable handling things on our own. We were very satisfied with your flexibility and knowledge -- you pushed hard for things you felt important (i.e. the city tour and marionette show in Yangon -- both of which you were totally right) and let other things slide (i.e. Mt. Popa). The final product was a compromise that accommodated our style and your expertise -- it looked great on paper and translated into a fascinating trip.

Above all else -- our choice to go with local guides rather than a national guide was perhaps the most crucial decision in making our trip so spectacular. Each of our four guides was wonderful and their expertise in their local region shined through. We are so, so happy that we chose this option.

You planned a great trip for us -- accommodations, guide, and local travel agency back-up were all top-notch.
