"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."

Hiking the Inca Trail (and learning that it is "an" Inca Trail, not "the" Inca Trail)

The Scottish Highlands is an incredible place, and there isn't much that can take away from it. Rabbie's 3-day tour to Skye makes the surprisingly far distance manageable, and stops at all of the right places. I particularly like the stop in Pitlochry, which is avoided on other trips. Other great things about the tour include the lodging (my friend I signed up for "hostel" and were put up in a lovely little bed-and-breakfast with a super nice host, other guests had similar experiences!), the bus, which is a spacious and comfortable Mercedes van, the small group size, and the amount of time you are given to explore the many towns and stops along the way. These things definitely helped make the trip wonderful, and are why I loved my journey into the highlands, even in the wind and the pouring rain.

With all that being said, there were two things I wasn't too fond of: the "tour guide", and the fact that no hike is included. Being surrounded by some of the most incredible hiking trails in the world, it would be great if we had the time to do even a 1 or 2-hour loop somewhere. I was itching to get out and actually experience the land, and never really got to beyond climbing the Dun Beag Broch (which was awesome).

The guide also pissed me off. Chick was a charismatic enough guy, definitely very Scottish, but he had next to nothing to offer about the place, historical landmarks, and really anything. We sat for 3 days in a van for hours with this guy, and he not only knew nothing, but happily spouted completely incorrect information. My friend and I, who were studying at the University of Edinburgh, were absolutely appalled at the outlandish "facts" he just made up about just about everything! From absurd statistics like the fact that Scotland runs on 95% wind power (in actually only like 60% is even renewable energy), pointing out castles that and landmarks in Edinburgh that literally weren't what he said they were (he called a random building the Palace of Holyrood, and said Mary Queen of Scots had three children), it was so annoying. I don't know if he was doing it to test us "tourists" and see if we actually knew the truth, or literally did not know, but when other people started asking about basic things later on, he would straight up admit that he didn't know and say he would look it up (he never did). The only thing he really did was preface the Battle of Culloden, telling us he would tell us the story the entire time, and we only actually got to the battleground at the end of the trip.

That was my main issue with Chick, but my friend was also offended by some of his jokes, one was a bit homophobic and others were sexually explicit. I think he was harmless and wasn't hateful or anything, and I wasn't personally bothered, but if you are traveling with children or sensitive to this kind of thing, it may bother you as well.

In conclusion, I was upset with the guide because I expected to learn new information on my tour. Instead, my friend and I would google all the attractions the night ahead and read up so we knew what we were looking at during the tour, and made sure we got correct information.

We went on two Rabbies tours while in Edinburgh. Both were excellent and the group consensus was that the tours were the highlight of our trip to Scotland. Without having a car, Rabbies makes seeing the country-side of Scotland accessible and fun. Rabbies takes care of the details so you can really relax, listen to Scottish tunes and enjoy the ride. We also got lucky with absolutely perfect weather for our week in Scotland, the tours were no exception.
Our first outing was with Ross and was a two-day Inverness, Highlands and Loch Ness tour. We saw so much on the tour and had plenty of opportunities to get off the bus, take pictures, grab a coffee, do a little exploring and enjoy lunch in a small, quaint town. Ross was very knowledgeable, authentic and a delight to have as our tour driver. We thought he was exceptional. Some highlights were grabbing a coffee in Dunkeld, fish and chips at Bruer, boat tour of Loch Ness, exploring Urquhart Castle, a photo stop (and a special bagpipe performance by our awesome guide) at Glencoe and so many other memorable stops. This trip was the "real" Scotland I had always wanted to visit wrapped up in an unforgettable 2-day trip.
Our second trip was with Stephen who took us on a one-day Lochs and Castles tour. Stephen was a great guide too; very knowledgeable and personable. He offered to take pictures for us and even did a few impromptu stops along the way to make sure we got the most out of our trip. We were able to catch a beautiful rainbow over Loch Awe thanks to his quick stop. The one day tour is more condensed (less time for very in-depth exploration) but still has the same breathtaking stops. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time in Scotland to go on more tours. We absolutely loved them!

      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.
