"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."

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!

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

The trip was amazing

Just returned from a trip to Cartagena planned by Chris at Travelous. Chris worked with me on my budget, the trip was amazing, and I'm now planning my next trip to St. Petersburg with him. This will be my third trip planned by Chris, and I'm sure it will be just as exceptional as the last two. Thanks, Chris.

It's good to have an insider plan your trip. That's what I think about Travelous, they seem to have the inside scoop on places, next time I travel I'll give em a shot, especially if a custom trip will cost me as much as a pre-packaged group tour.

      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.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Their name is a play on the world fabulous, meaning they design their tours to be just that. An elite group of “tour architects” design trips specifically for you. These are not simply travel agents - they have either lived in, travel extensively through, or taken multiple tours in your country of interest.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Travelous is an extension of the award-winning travel blog, Just Travelous, written by Yvonne Zaggermann. Her expertise is clear, and the same attention to detail is brought by the Tour Architects who work with you to create your perfect itinerary. They emphasize helping you create your own story, as opposed to the story of a pre-created itinerary you might find through a larger tour operator.
