We had an excellent experience on the Salkantay trek. I would highly recommend Aspiring - they go above and beyond. Thank you to Katy, Steve, Victor, Zacarias, and the whole team at Aspiring for an unforgettable trek.

My words are going to be totally inadequate to describe the quality of our experience with Aspiring Adventures. We have just completed our travel adventure in Peru and my entire interaction with Aspiring Adventures was absolutely amazing. Save yourself time and energy. You must use them for your adventure. They will help you design the exact custom trip that you want giving you loads of advice based on their experience. You will never have to worry about the logistics of your trip. All aspects of our trip from the planning stage to the execution stage were exemplary. Everyone involved with Aspiring Adventures was so thorough, knowledgeable and professional. But, most importantly, they really cared about us as people and really cared about making our travel experience memorable. Katy, who is an owner, took a hands on active role in helping us plan and execute our trip. Her knowledge of the local area, hotels, restaurants and culture are beyond belief. She is a wonderful person and a treasure. Luis, our guide, was even more amazing. His knowledge of the area, the culture, the customs, the history, the plant and wildlife was incredible. They were always willing to alter the itinerary to accommodate our wishes. There were many extra special things they did for us that was not part of the agreed itinerary that made our trip even more special. I will never be able to thank them enough for making this trip one of the best experiences of our lifetime.

I worked with Aspiring Adventures for months leading up to our recent trip to Peru. Katy never tired of answering my emails or making changes to our working itinerary. When we were actually on our trip, unanticipated road bumps ( a very late arriving flight due to weather, a national strike) were deftly handled by the team. The drivers and guides arranged by Aspiring were absolutely top notch - kind, knowledgeable, and flexible. They felt like family as soon as we met them. These folks are the best in the business.

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

            About Aspiring Adventures

            Aspiring Adventures is a tour provider founded by two travel enthusiasts with a focus on travel in Peru.

            About St Hilda Sea Adventures

            St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

            What Makes Them Stand Out?

            Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

            Who Travels With Them?

            All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

            Where Do They Operate?

            The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

            Why Travel With Them?

            Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
