I went to Bhutan for a cultural and hiking experience and I got one! Our guides were AMAZING and shared their amazing, unique culture with us. They answered all our random questions, and gave us an incredibly insight into their world. The hikes were gorgeous, especially to Tiger's Nest and the Cheli La pass. We got to chat with monks at a Buddhist college and eat at a local farmhouse for lunch. The temples were incredible as well. Boundless was great to work with, they handled all the visa stuff and airfare into the country. I'd definitely take another trip with them. Ashley the person I was in contact with was friendly and since she'd been there, she could answer all my questions from first-hand experience. The food wasn't amazing, but you don't go to Bhutan for the food. But the lodging was definitely way better than I expected!

This was my 50th Birthday gift from my husband, to take my daughter and myself to do this trek. Our guide was a snobby, disrespectful still Sargent with no social graces. My cousin from Paris and his daughter, then about 8, met us for the pre departure hike and this horrible guide yelled at her! And it was on my daughters birthday, July 25th. I'll never forget. He ruined the trip. We made the best of it of course but he was just so awful and wouldn't allow us to have interaction with other people we met on the trail! I mean it was just the 3 of us in the trip so we are very social and wanted to meet and interact with others! He truly ruined the trip and in addition the accommodations were not great. It may have been ok if they had told us, but they didn't. One night we had no heat or hot water and had to share a bathroom with the entire floor of our hiking lodge. The company did NOT tell us about that in advance. We are allergic to the cold! This is a safety issue. Unbelievable. I would NOT recommend this trip with this company.

Super fun! First time here with our 1 year old son and he enjoyed it and it even made us feel like kids again since we were able to join him in the play area! Food was ok for the price. Surprised that the pizza tasted better than some cheap pizza shops. But overall we would definitely make the trip back to this place.

We were extremely happy with how each and every minor/major logistics were taken care of during our entire trip to Peru. Starting from the planning phase, Andrew and Garvey of Lost World were with us revising the itinerary multiple times until it met with our comfort level. This was our very first time of hiring a professional travel agency for organizing our vacation at the international location, so you can imagine the degree of anxiety we had about our trip at the beginning. Andrew kept assuring us that you will know as soon as you reach there that you are in good hands. That turned out to be true word-by-word. At every airport we were met with someone who was assigned to take us to the hotels, and each time the individual left only after making sure that we were all set. Throughout our trip we always find the people attending us (the guides, transfer and drivers) very prompt, professional and courteous. One problem we experienced though that many a times the individuals assigned to us were not very proficient in English. This was quite limiting but nevertheless was countered with the help of google translator and very enthusiastic personnel who were genuinely eager to help. The guides (Natalie in Sacred valley and Cusco; Sergio at the Matchu Pitchu) who went with us to various excursion tours were knowledgeable, entertaining and very very friendly. The cars were in really great conditions, roomy and very clean - in fact one of the drivers used to keep the black synthetic floors spotless by wiping our dusty footprints every single time we stepped out. The location of each hotel was prime, which was truly important for us particularly when we were on tight schedule and has no clue about the orientation of touristy hot spots and down town plazas. Perhaps this is unique to the south american setting, but we struggled a little with the 'Vouchers' - something that you paid for that does not go in to the system automatically when you check-in at the hotels. However, our escorts/hotel front desk people were very much aware of it and they helped us almost all of those time. All of the city tour tickets were booked and given to us as soon as we landed in Peru. I want to mention that we were moved by Carlos, our transfer guy in Cusco, who went over on each single thing included in our itinerary while we were driving from the airport to the hotel on our first day. He did that so sincerely while also telling us about the people/history and geography of Peru. I also remember, he wanted to accompany us up to the Vistadome train, but was stopped at the gate (and desperately argued with them to let him do that). Our food restrictions were varied -from nothing to vegan- it was addressed meticulously at the lodge in Amazon Forests, without us reminding them about it. Other places already had appropriate options in their menus. Our itinerary was not overwhelmingly busy - it had some leisure times and times for shopping or just walking around on our own carefully planted, which we liked the most. At one point, we needed to cancel one of the excursion while there at Matchu Pitchu pretty late in the night (due to some health issues; we were supposed to be at the bus stop terribly early AM), we reached out to the emergency contact number of Lost World and they promptly and rapidly helped us with it. We can go on and on to tell you how much we enjoyed the excellent services provided by Lost World - it only enhanced our appreciation of Peru in its entirety.
Thank you so much, we appreciate all your help and look forward to go on to the next vacation with you.

    About Boundless Journeys

    Boundless Journeys is a small group adventure operator with 20+ years experience, located in Vermont, USA. They specialize in active trips all over the world, which feature activities such as trekking, rafting, safaris, or expedition cruises.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Many tour companies advertise their ‘small groups’ but Boundless Journeys’ are truly small - with an average group size of just 8-10 travelers. Employees of Boundless Journeys are constantly out ‘in the field’ researching new trips and working to create truly authentic experiences. They offer a wide variety of trips, focusing on multiple activities and destinations all over the world. Boundless Journeys has won multiple industry awards from Travel & Leisure and National Geographic Adventure.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Boundless Journeys tends to attract travelers who want to challenge themselves physically or culturally, but with a bit of comfort. Groups are a mix of couples, friends, families, and solo travelers. Boundless Journeys does not force a single supplement if you are traveling alone, but you may choose to have your own room if desired.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Boundless Journeys operates trips all over the world, including safaris in Africa, walking and trekking excursions throughout Europe, cultural adventures in Asia, and expedition cruising in Turkey and Ecuador. They also offer a substantial number of itineraries in their ‘private collections’ category, which can be of value if you already have a group of friends or family to travel with.

    Why Travel with Them?

    If you have always wanted to trek the Alps or hike the Inca Trail with a few extra added creature comforts, you might enjoy a trip with Boundless Journeys. On many trips, the trip guides arrange for your bags to meet you at the next destination, so you are free to enjoy while carrying only the basic necessities. Accommodations are always locally owned and authentic to the region (unless you are camping). Boundless Journeys also gives back philanthropically to the areas they visit and many of their past clients are involved with local non-profit projects around the world.

    Tours are catered, customized, and private - they can accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large family or friend groups. Lost World Adventures is best suited to those travels seeking a highly customized experience. If you have some pre-set ideas about what you want to see and do, you’ll enjoy working with Lost World Adventures - and you’ll know you’re making the most of the specialized service they offer.

    Trips are generally in middle to high price range - if you are looking for a budget trip, you probably won’t find it here. Tours with Lost World Adventures are best enjoyed by those who don’t mind paying for the finer things in life.

    Top Destinations
