Stay away. This was a weird experience! I should have hung the phone up right after being introduced to the agent who asked me, "Do you have enough money for this trip?" What?! You've got to be kidding! I asked this bizarre person why they asked me that and she said, "We don't usually have women traveling alone." My jaw hit the floor. Was she born in 1850, 1900? My bad that I didn't hang the phone up right there and then.

This was the tip of the iceberg, however: I had originally called this agency early to make sure I got the trip nailed down for the dates I needed because I was using frequent flier miles for my flights. The agent said I had contacted them too early and that we can make arrangements later. Okay. I took her advice.

Lo and behold, we made the reservations TOO LATE and I ended up having to spend three extra days where I did not want to be because of her error! She gave me a curt "I'm sorry." In my opinion, a five-star agency would have offered some compensation for this type of error! Nothing, zero, zilch! Five-star? HA! No way. Stay away and go with someone else!

We were invited by friends, (two couples,) to join them on a trip they had already planned to Sri Lanka in December of 2016. Because they had used ATJ, we asked that company to add us on. The three couples were all then going on to India, but in separate directions, so we had ATJ continue to plan our private journey in India, with hotels, guides and drivers. Eric Kereus was our agent from ATJ. He was superb. Both in Sri Lanka and in India we had wonderful guides and drivers, stayed in delightful, top rate accommodations, and ate delicious healthy meals with never a hint of indigestion. Everything we saw was interesting and worth our time in both countries. We are very satisfied customers. You can’t miss by using ATJ.

This was my third experience traveling with Asia Transpacific, we have been to Vietnam and Cambodia and in Myamar in individual trips organized by them. This was my first guided tour. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and responsible, she made sure we got a well rounded experience with history as well as modern day information. The tour encompassed modern Japan, as well as visits to ancient sites. The company is very responsive, several of our tour members had emergencies (one left her credit and bank cards home) and the company helped without hesitation. Tours are extremely well organized. I highly recommend them!

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

    About Asia Transpacific Journeys

    They craft personalized itineraries for international travelers. They specialize in immersive Asia travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Small group tours that provide unique cultural and country insights. Their tours are all led by experienced guides who have extensive industry and travel experience. Custom tours as well as pre designed itineraries are available. This is a great company to work with for planning the kind of travel experience you want, catered to your interests specifically, especially in Asia which is where they specialize.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Couples and small groups of friends are common on their tours - all ages are welcome, but they are most popular among middle aged travelers; think 30-50. Their trips are on the more expensive side, but with that comes a lot of personalization.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite their misleading name, they operate tours not only in Asia, but in Australia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and Turkey as well. The bulk of their expertise and travel experiences are offered in Asia, however, including Mongolia.

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you enjoy small group travel (the max number of people on their trips is 18) and are looking for a truly immersive and authentic travel experience. All logistical aspects of your trip are taken care of and they provide non stop in country support.

    About Lost World Adventures

    Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
