You did a great job - the trip was fantastic and all your recommendations were spot on! Thank you for everything - it was all great! I loved Machu Picchu because it is so amazing and I have wanted to see this since I was 7 years old. But, as a family - we loved the Galapagos - so wonderful and interesting - we had a terrific outstanding guide - Omar, and everyone on our boat was so so fun and interesting and the crew could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We all felt pretty connected to each other after just the 5 days and we all felt pretty lucky to have this experience together.

6-Day Peru: Machu Picchu Tour by Train and 5-Day Galapagos Cruise, July-August 2017

Great trip, everything was taken care of, hotels/homestays were great overall; the itinerary was perfect for the 14 days we had! Luang Prabang was incredible! Had never heard of it before, but fell in love with that special little town! I LOVED the Elephant Sanctuary, getting up early to see the monks receive alms; being part of the Baci ceremony. Sooo many things to do there. And most esp. I really, really loved our tourguide Vong!!! He contsantly stopped the car to show us rice paddies, animals along the road, etc. He was insanely kind; generous, so passionate to show us his country. All of our tourguides were great, bit Vong is the absolute BEST! I cried when we left him at the airport. That's how good he was to us!

I recommend you guys whenever possible, my first experience in Tanzania was so great which is why I opted for you guys for my Peru trip. Macchu Picchu was of course the highlight for us. Thank you, Gretchen, for all your amazing help and your thorough attention to all our questions and concerns. You helped make a bucket list dream come true and we couldn't have been happier with the service overall!! I look forward to the next adventure with you guys in the future! :)

Tanzania

The trip - WONDERFUL!  The sights, the locations, and most especially the people we met made this Adventure a memory of a lifetime to carry and to tell others to contact Adventures Within Reach when it is their turn! Our Kilimanjaro lead guide Abuu and his Assistant Gerald were off the scale you gave - I would give them 1000 on a scale of 1 to 10 they were so good to us.  Friendly, helpful, fun to interact with, wise and very experienced, they anticipated needs, led the porters with decisions always in good humor and were so encouraging to us the final day of climbing.  Our guide Vincent on the Safari was very knowledgable and pointed out things we never saw - and we DID see four of the Big five missing only the Rhino, and spotted four leopards in trees and one VERY close up Cheetah.

1-Day Short Kilimanjaro Trek, July 2017

Both the Kilimanjaro trek and Safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater (caldera actually) were literally dreams come true for me. I'm an environmental scientist and started my career as a field research biologist. As a child, I was already reading books about African wildlife and would watch nature shows on TV of the Tanzanian plains and forests with my Dad every week. I read an article about Mt. Kilimanjaro in a National Geographic magazine as a young adult and made it my goal to climb it. Later, I learned about the disappearance of the glaciers due to climate change and felt even more of an urgency. In 2006, I spent four months in Southern Africa as a research assistant then traveling through seven countries but Tanzania was still "calling". So, my initial goals were made decades ago, and for various "life" reasons, pursuing them was postponed, but they were accomplished, the dreams realized, this past October (2016) at age 49!

Costa Rica

Overall the trip was pretty great. We very much enjoyed our hiking, ziplining, tubing etc. Some of the rooms were more basic that I would have liked but we were traveling on a budget :).
