Operator Large Minority



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.

Operator Myths and Mountains



Good tour vastly enhanced by high quality leader January 2017


Puglia and Matera Magnifica Tour

Beppe Salerno was my guide on a cycling trip through Puglia in Southeastern Italy.

Although I had cycled for many years and ridden in Italy before this was the first commercial trip I had ever taken. Riding with Beppe was central to the unique experience provided by this trip.

Beppe provided unique insights into Italian life and culture as well as useful commentary on cycling routes and styles. His knowledge of Italian wines and cuisine transformed the trip from simply a “ride on a bicycle” to a gastronomic adventure. He introduced me to new wines, new dishes and to the people who grew, bottled and prepared them. We discussed history, dialects, regionalisms, music and architecture.

Beppe's skills are many. Paramount among them, in my opinion, is his ability to motivate people of diverse backgrounds and with widely divergent interests into a cohesive, collaborative group enjoying the company of others while reveling in the delights of a shared ride.

Excellent tour guide! January 2017


Adventure Morocco

I'm not sure if you recognize excellence of tour guide specifically, but I just wanted to express how impressed I was with my tour guide of adventure Morocco tour. Abdoul Moussali was an exceptional tour guide who was informative, friendly, caring, and hilarious. This trip was definitely one of the best I have ever had, and by far the best tour I have ever been on. Please let me know if there is any way I can nominate him for any further recognition. I am also sure that many, if not all, of the other travelers would be interesting in recognizing his excellence in any way possible. Read more
