Was extremely pleased with their service in arranging our recent trip to Chile including Patagonia and Atacama. Liz did a great job in helping to plan and coordinate an amazing trip. Highly recommend for anyone planning a trip to South America.

Vaya advisor James Kinard organized everything very well, so the trip was interesting and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this agency to my friends if they are looking for individual attention to their travel needs.
The ship Legend exceeded our expectations as the crew was very skilled and knowledgeable, the ship was very beautifully restored and clean. The only disappointment was that 5 day cruise in reality is only three days, so perhaps seven days ( that would turn into five) would be more advisable.
Colombia was colorful and interesting and made me want to return to see more of this country

VAYA helped us design and then organized the most fantastic trip I’ve ever taken. I was a little concerned about this trip, my Spanish speaking skills are limited, I didn’t know too much about Argentina and I wasn’t quite sure how it would go. But it was a fantastic experience from the first greeting in Buenos Aires to the final flight home from Santiago. The guides were all experienced, knowledgeable and had a real desire to help you have a great experience. The drivers are very competent, helpful and the cars are perfect for the situation whether cruising around Buenos Aires or heading onto Tierra del Fuego.
We had five internal flights on our 21 day trip and Vaya arranged them perfectly. A window seat on the “right”side of the plane every time, just as I prefer. Got some great pic.s in those seats. And Air Argentina did an excellent job of communicating with us before flights, handling baggage and transfers and checking us in with only our passports required. One flight on Air Argentina and youllknow you’re on a first rate airline. And, the VAYA guide was standing next to me at the checkin counter each time to be sure all went well and to help resolve any issues like overweight baggage.
I can’t say enough about our experiences. The small hotels recommended and booked by VAYA were just to our liking. Smalll, contemporary design, well located. The MINE hotel in Buenos Aires was so pleasant, with very helpful staff and well located for those who like to get out and about. The Finca Adalaise in Mendoza is lovely, set in a small vineyard with excellent wine, large comfortable rooms, and pool set in the vineyard. I’d also recommend the cooking class to learn to make empanadas Mendoza style! In Bariloche the famous and luxurious Llao Llao hotel upgraded us the Presidential Suite. 1,400 sq ft. of beautiful . I wish I could attach a picture. I don’t know how but I think being a VAYA client got us the upgrade.
Our trip went on for another ten days and every day including the exciting 5 day small boat cruise to Cape Horn and the fjords in Chile aboard the Australis Ventus, and our stay near the Perito Moreno Glacier at the Nibepo Aike ranch were unforgettable.
I can’t say enough about this trip, and the people who pulled it together and delivered it - VAYA. I,like every other Vaya traveler I know, would recommend this agency without reservation. Take the chance, you won’t believe how much fun you’ll have!
Vaya, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Oh, and thanks to my wife for finding VAYA, love ya darlin!

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

      About Vaya Adventures

      South America focused, Vaya Adventures was founded in 2004 and brings you up and close and personal with many facets of South American culture.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      As specialists in custom trips as well as specific regions in South America, they are the perfect place to go for unique travel experiences. They offer several different types of trip, from family oriented to couples getaways. 

      Who Travels With Them?

      Anyone looking for a specialized trip in South America. Their tours are ideally suited to travelers interested having a hand in creating an itinerary, and many of their activities are “adventurous.” Think treks to Machu Picchu or glacier walking in Patagonia.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They operate trips throughout South America, including cruises to the Galapagos and Antarctica.

      Why Travel With Them?

      For an exceptional tailor made journey, which will introduce you to South America beyond the tourist sights.

      Additionally, if you’re concerned about eco-friendly travel, it should come as no surprise that a company that focuses in a land vastly covered with rainforest, operates responsibly. They work with environmental organizations, including the Rainforest Alliance, to work towards preservation.
