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!Read more

Does Not Recommend
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.Read more

"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.Read more
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."

Our trip to Peru was planned perfectly, thanks to our travel agent! He was quick to respond to all of my needs & was very flexible. The hotels and the guides he arranged were great! We couldn't have asked for or imagined a better experience in this magical country!Read more
