I have had the pleasure of leading two charity treks up Kilimanjaro for Innocent Eyes Project with the help of Adventures Within Reach. Before you get to the mountain, there is a ton of planning and a lot of decisions to make. Working with AWR made my job easy. They answered questions directly from my group and made sure everyone knew exactly what to expect. When we got to Tanzania, they were on top of all the details and the team that led us on our climb was a true pleasure. Travel can certainly be an adventure, but having a great partner like AWR can make all the difference.

Really great people! I was really happy with how much help I was given by the people at AWR. I had a customized itinerary for a trip from Cusco to Lake Titicaca in Peru and could not have had a better experience. I can't wait to try AWR's tours in other places.

I love this company. I am a single woman who has safely and confidently traveled all over the world with the help of AWR. I have signed up for their packages and they have custom made adventures for me as well. I highly recommend their entire team. Given the amount of travel I do something will go wrong, but AWR has always been there to correct it as soon as possible.

Just returned from the most amazing trip to Africa, thanks to AWR! At both locations (South Africa and Rwanda), the accommodations were wonderful, the guides and staff were professional and friendly, and the animals sightings completely exceeded our expectations. We felt safe and cared for during our entire stay. Thank you, AWR, for a trip of a lifetime!!
