The boat was lovely, and the crew were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. They were all very helpful, I couldn't possibly single anyone out because they were all very good. The food was delicious, there was a set menu each day for each meal but if you couldn't eat what was on offer they changed it without any quibble. The arrangements went like clockwork. We had excursions included on our trip which made it very good value for money.
Everything worked liked clockwork. Out guides on land were great, horseback riding on Cotopaxi outstanding and the trip to Galapagos was amazing. Beyond expectations. The crew and guides aboard the Coral 1 were great.
Great vacation! Great guides! Great support and help from Adventure Life staff! In hindsight, we should have stayed a few more days-- would have enjoyed seeing the Pacific side and relaxing a few days...
I can't even describe how awesome this trip was. Pristine beauty, one-of-a-kind wildlife encounters, the best guides ever...
Far exceeded expectation - Alaska is Alaska. Breathtaking. What made it far exceed was the people - guides, crew, land support - and the amenities- food, ship's facilities, planning and execution every day. Wonderful trip in every way.
The food on our trek was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations!
We enjoyed the small size of the Wilderness Explorer and the many choices each day to kayak, hike, take a skiff ride and even snorkel one morning. The staff and guides were enthusiastic and helpful and the other passengers were an interesting and fun group. The cabin was bigger than I expected and the boat set up very nicely, especially the fantail where the kayaks and skiffs were launched. Food was a bit uneven though generally good and the pastry chef was excellent.
Everything went as planned. Had the time of my life. The only thing that I would suggest is that you need an extra night in Lima before you get on the plane home, to clean up and get your gear cleaned..no matter how hard you try, you still smell like a 10,000 year old rain forest...
This is our second trip with Adventure Life and it was just as wonderful as our first trip. We had a wonderful time in Peru!
We had a great vacation! Everyone we worked with - from the staff at Adventure Life before our trip to the local guide, driver, and hotel staff - were super friendly and helpful!
Our guide in Peru was Mario and he was excellent!! Highly recommend him. The Millennium guides changed a couple of times, as the first guide hurt himself. We ended up with Robert, who was excellent.
This was by far my favorite vacation thanks to Adventure Life. I've traveled to many wonderful countries in my lifetime but never have I experienced so much in such a short period of time. The Adventure Life guides couldn't have been more knowledgeable and accommodating.
What a wonderful safari with an extremely knowledgeable guide, Regan, that went above and beyond in getting up close to the abundant wildlife on this adventure. The accommodations were always first class and the service was outstanding. The Hot Air Balloon ride over Sossusvlei was an outstanding addition to this journey.
Everything was very smooth and I was extremely happy with the trip and the services AL provided. My main feedback: Vidal is an absolute TREASURE. He was kind, genuine, knowledgeable, helpful, and all-around a very positive addition to the trip. When one of our members got sick, he went out of his way to check on her. When our luggage was stranded on the other side of some road work, he hopped out of the van to go on foot to arrange it to join us. I was able to notice and hear other guides during our travels, and never heard Vidal's equal. Whenever I heard another guide, I felt even more grateful for Vidal and his manner. He was not just helpful and knowledgable-- he was genuinely pleasant to spend all those days with.
Gonazlo Lima is the absolute BEST. We enjoyed visiting a land that he loves deeply with him.
Activity-wise Erin did a great job in suggesting hikes which were unique and very special. For guides Alan was very knowledgeable and did a great job. However Gonzalo Lima was outstanding. Having him for 6 days by ourselves was a memorable experience. He became our friend and shared his love of the country, it's past and present and vital information to make our trip so special. We would recommend him to anyone.
Our local was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He was kind and helpful and enjoyable to be around.
The highlight of our Lamanai portion was the Sunset cruise each night, watching the sun go down with Belican in hand. Howler Monkeys outside the door. At the Blue Tang in San Pedro - perfectly located and a fantastic fully equipped kitchen - with a/c. Adventure Life put all the pieces together perfectly.
Everything was absolutely amazing. Our guide, Christian, and hotel staff were kind, attentive, helpful, and caring. Everyone went above and beyond to help me.... Everyone I spoke with was incredibly helpful from Milagros and Fabiola in Peru to the staff in the US-- THANK YOU!!!!! I cannot say enough good things.
