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!

I was here with my friends last December and I must say, our expedition to Everest base camp was one of the most memorable moments in my life!

Suresh was very accommodating to us and he was a great host while we were in Kathmandu. I highly recommend getting Rakesh as a guide, he is the epitome of greatness!

    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.

    About Sunrise Adventure

    Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.
