"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."

Dear Mala Tours & Safari
We had the most AMAZING trip, almost every place we stayed took our breath away. The highlights for me were seeing 100 elephants in the river at Tarangire, having lions roaring outside our tent at Swala (my favorite camp) and of course the gorillas. Our guide in Tanzania, Daniel, was fantastic, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Zanzibar was fabulous too, the Asali suite a perfect end to our trip. I haven't got time to write much now but here are some photos. If you want photos of anything specific to ask me I have 850! Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime we have already recommended you to several people.Love Lizzy

I thought I had been everywhere. But then I joined Mala and his crew of professionals - and I have returned a new person. This trip was so well orchestrated, accommodations, game drives, cultural immersion were just mind-blowing. I had my fears prior to going to Africa, but Mala assured me, and YES - we were VERY WELL protected. The people of Tanzania that we met - deep, caring souls - some of the villages and schools and people were primitive - a world away from what we are used to in America. The Big 5 - oh, yes, we saw them ! I also found out that I am a bird lover! The species of birds that Mala pointed out to us are exceptionally beautiful - and unlike any birds we have in America. Mala assisted me with my camera- and I have some of the best shots that I will always treasure. Personalized and genuine is how I would best describe the trip - Ripped suitcase ? No problem, Mala had it mended. Forgot your adapter - No problem, Mala went out and got us one. In closing, all I can say is open your mind, have no fears -and experience Tanzania with a professional, articulate, knowledgeable, kind and caring naturalist – Mala Tours.

      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.
