Stay away. This was a weird experience! I should have hung the phone up right after being introduced to the agent who asked me, "Do you have enough money for this trip?" What?! You've got to be kidding! I asked this bizarre person why they asked me that and she said, "We don't usually have women traveling alone." My jaw hit the floor. Was she born in 1850, 1900? My bad that I didn't hang the phone up right there and then.

This was the tip of the iceberg, however: I had originally called this agency early to make sure I got the trip nailed down for the dates I needed because I was using frequent flier miles for my flights. The agent said I had contacted them too early and that we can make arrangements later. Okay. I took her advice.

Lo and behold, we made the reservations TOO LATE and I ended up having to spend three extra days where I did not want to be because of her error! She gave me a curt "I'm sorry." In my opinion, a five-star agency would have offered some compensation for this type of error! Nothing, zero, zilch! Five-star? HA! No way. Stay away and go with someone else!

We were invited by friends, (two couples,) to join them on a trip they had already planned to Sri Lanka in December of 2016. Because they had used ATJ, we asked that company to add us on. The three couples were all then going on to India, but in separate directions, so we had ATJ continue to plan our private journey in India, with hotels, guides and drivers. Eric Kereus was our agent from ATJ. He was superb. Both in Sri Lanka and in India we had wonderful guides and drivers, stayed in delightful, top rate accommodations, and ate delicious healthy meals with never a hint of indigestion. Everything we saw was interesting and worth our time in both countries. We are very satisfied customers. You can’t miss by using ATJ.

Jen Boyd was an incredible travel representative, and created the most memorable trip. Her advice on locations to visit, personalized tours and the accommodations she arranged were far beyond our expectations. I would recommend her to anyone considering traveling to the far east.

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!

About Asia Transpacific Journeys

They craft personalized itineraries for international travelers. They specialize in immersive Asia travel.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Small group tours that provide unique cultural and country insights. Their tours are all led by experienced guides who have extensive industry and travel experience.

Who Travels With Them?

Couples and small groups of friends are common on their tours - all ages are welcome, but they are most popular among middle aged travelers; think 30-50. Their trips are on the more expensive side, but with that comes a lot of personalization.
