The hotels, food, activities were just great. All the hotel owners and managers were welcoming and keen to provide good service. We loved the visits to both Moni's and Praveen's homes! The food in all places was excellent. I honestly thought it was a given that if I went to India I'd pick up some kind of food related stomach issue. I was wrong. None of us got sick.
We had such a great time with Moni, Praveen, Radeesh and Moni the boat driver. A warm, fun, thoughtful group. I was the weakest kayaker and Praveen was great at keeping an eye out for me when I was on my own, and paddling for me in the double when I needed a break. A very patient, kind, strong person. Moni and Praveen organized a biking and kayaking day that was ideal. As the group leader, Moni was keen to ensure we were all happy with the plans, even providing chocolate for our rest stops when Cathy mentioned we liked chocolate. Despite the crazy roads in India I felt confident Radeesh would get us around safely, and with a great smile too!
I loved this holiday and will truly treasure it. A great mix of different activities and rest time, including an "interesting" massage. A wonderful group looking after us. A heartfelt thank you to you and the team for providing us with this opportunity. Well done!

The Sri Lanka trip was over the top wonderful. What a country! So lush, verdant, beautiful, friendly, and then there were the Buddhist shrines, HIndu temples, elephants, birds, tea plantations, great food, and wonderful hotels. Dag and Maria are the best guides of all time and now there is another: Darwyn. What an adventure! Oh yes, our local guide Pria was superb. We loved it all.

"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 Hidden Places Travel

      Hidden Places Travel specializes in kayaking, wildlife viewing, and cultural journeys from Myanmar to The Galapagos to Indochina.

      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.
