Words cannot express the depth of my gratitude for all you did in providing my daughter, Ali, with a safe and memorable adventure through Peru and Ecuador. Had it not been for your careful planning, time-consuming organization, emphasis on safety, and professionalism, Ali’s once-in-a-lifetime experience would not have been so positive.  Thank you for your encouragement that helped her conquer her fears.  Thank you for your patience when Ali was learning  new skills.  Thank you for your professionalism. But MOST OF ALL…Thank you for bringing my daughter home safely.
