Huge thanks to Natalie (UK) for arranging an amazing trip at such short notice. We totally trusted her for our itinerary as we did not have time to research ourselves and we were not disappointed. Everything worked perfectly - we loved Colombia and the Colombians. Also thanks to Natalia and the local agency in the coffee region for changing our itinerary at short notice.

All the tour guides and drivers were excellent and most spoke English. They all had passion and were very knowledgeable about their country.
ID, London | August 2018 | 50 - 65
We're really glad we booked with JLA. Your knowledge of the countries we visited showed. You put together a pretty perfect itinerary for us in a very tight timescale.

Overall excellent. Cannot fault Paul or the guides in Santiago or Tierra. We had a wonderful time. A truly memorable holiday.
RW, Malvern | July 2018 | 50 - 65
The whole trip was excellent and the tour leader's knowledge and personality enhanced it.
VH, Torpoint | July 2018 | 65 and over
An excellent well organised tour.. We saw all the major Inca sites & Machu Picchu was amazing, exceeding all expectations. The Galápagos Islands at the end of the tour just blew us away.
AEMH, Stafford | June 2018 | 50 - 65
It was a real pleasure dealing with Journey Latin America.
LN, London | June 2018 | 50 - 65 | Family
Another perfect holiday where from my initial enquiry email to arriving back home, everything ran smoothly. I didn't encounter a single problem at all during my trip and this made my experience of Panama so special.
TF, Wakefield | June 2018 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Considering that we had a number of agents that we could have randomly picked online, we hit lucky with Journey Latin America! We had little time to prepare for our trip and so needed an agent that would listen to our requirements and come up with ideas based on our stating that we liked archaeology, wildlife, museums and food!
AA, Newport | June 2018 | With Partner
A journey to South America was a long held dream of mine, and Journey Latin America certainly fulfilled my dream.
EM, Bromley | June 2018 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
This is the third year that we have travelled with JLA and each time it was very well organised from start to finish. We have had three brilliant trips.
JH, Radstock | June 2018 | 65 and over
Excellent holiday, more than we ever dreamt it would be.
SC, Oswestry | June 2018 | 50 - 65 | Family
Having travelled with JLA before, I'm afraid I've run out of superlatives to describe the quality of the whole experience from tentative initial inquiry to arriving home; as ever exhausted but still buzzing.
DM, Nottingham | June 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
Overall a very well planned and amazing holiday. Well done to everyone who worked very hard in making sure that we saw the 3 countries we visited in great detail. Each day was packed full with interesting things. Really a fabulous holiday.
DB, Weymouth | May 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Friends
Jessica was probably the best tour guide we have ever had!
CT, Malmesbury | May 2018 | 65 and over
My first time in South America - I picked Pato Andino because it offered the chance to travel from coast to coast and experience some of the highlights of four countries. I had a fabulous time!
MC, Ely | May 2018 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Our consultant in JLA was excellent and with brilliant suggestions.Hannah seemed to know what we wanted. Thank you Hannah.I felt like we were being guided by a friend.
MH, Sligo | April 2018 | 65 and over
The whole JLA Experience was fantastic ! Natalie was very helpful, approachable and organized everything for us. Costa Rica is an amazing country - small, but with so much to offer and so diverse ! The people were very friendly and welcoming and the weather was great !
TW, Glasgow | April 2018 | 35 - 50 | Family
Very helpful. Everything went well, no hitches, and very relaxing as well as fascinating, excellent organisation- thank you.

Great company. Very impressed with the suitability of every single detail of our holiday.
DW, Winchester | April 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
This was a holiday I have wanted to do for many years and it did not fail to deliver. Our tour leader was professional,knowledgeable, understanding and integrated with the local guides to ensure received the best service and information.The recommendations we were given for restaurants, optional tours, tango evenings,sorting money etc were spot on. And finally, the visits to various ice cream parlours for dessert after group meals was most welcome!
GM, Fairford | April 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Friends
We had an excellent trip- this was our first time with JLA_ it was good to travel with a company that knows Central America well.
SW, Surbiton | March 2018 | 50 - 65
Quite honestly the best holiday we've ever been on. The attention to detail and the imaginative itinerary could not be faulted. As retired airline personnel we have travelled and holidayed widely but this holiday has been outstanding.
MK, Southampton | March 2018 | 65 and over
The Penguin tour was excellent. It covered all the main places I wanted to see, from the Atacama to Patagonia. There are not many companies that cover so much, for group travellers.
MB, Chelmsford | March 2018 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller
Well organised holiday with good range of hotels and locations. Drivers were all of a very high standard.
RR, Aberdeen | March 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Thank you for a really interesting and enjoyable holiday.
WS, York | March 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
Our trip to Peru and Equador was fantastic and our experience from our first contact with Jamie was perfect. We have used Journey Latin America before when we went to Guatemala and Belize which is why we went back to them to plan this holiday. All went brilliantly well and we had a great time. Thank you.
LM, Reading | March 2018 | 50 - 65
We knew from the itinarary that alot of travelling would be involved. Given the amount we saw it was well worth time spent in the bus. We compared this itinerary to several other adventure travel companies, and this was by far the most comprehensive. We have had alot of good tour leaders over the years, but we have never one so generous with his time. Max was always happy to take us anywhere we wanted to go -from an ATM to a 3 hour walking tour.
JN, Peterborough | March 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We were looking forward to our Cuban holiday for months and it exceeded our expectations. The itinerary arrange by JLA met our needs to explore and enjoy Cuba yet having time relax.
PD, Woking | March 2018 | 50 - 65 | Family
We were very pleased with the overall package put together by JLA.
AC, Saffron walden | March 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
JLA already has a good reputation and we were certainly impressed by the management of this tour.
AF, Altrincham | March 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
The filter water bottles a great success. The vouchers for the guides, drivers & accommodation made everything run smoothly.
JL, Driffield | March 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Mexico is a wonderful place for holiday, vibrant and intriguing. We combined visits to historic cities (Mexico City and Cuernavaca) with a beach holiday in Puerto Vallarta. All the arrangements made for us by Journey Latin America worked well.
BC, London | February 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
I have booked 2 trips with you to Chile last year and the central america trip this year. it was a delight to plan with you and everything worked very well. i was able to relax and enjoy the trip knowing that the hotels and visits had been chosen with care and knowledge and that I would be looked after wherever we wnet. Thank you.
EM, Ilkley | February 2018 | 65 and over | Family
Everything went smoothly in terms of flights, transfers, meet and greets etc. Thank you for making sure that we had a hassle free holiday.
AR, London | February 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Against a demanding itinerary requirement, JLA provided an unforgettable opportunity to comfortably enjoy both city life and serene wildlife in the region.
CH, York | February 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
Etienne really enhanced the whole experience with his knowlege about all the destinations. He was also very funny and had a good stock of stories for the long journeys. It was our first experience of small group travel ., and although on balance we prefer independant travel, to cover as many countries as we did, we couldn't have done it on our own!
CS, Seaford | February 2018 | 50 - 65
The Eagle tour was one of the best trips I have had. Thank you all!
HC, Newcastle upon tyne | February 2018 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
We felt that you put together a wonderful itinerary for us. Our trip to Chile and Argentina was marvellous and we're hugely grateful.
CH, London | February 2018 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
JLA made life very easy. We knew the places we wanted to go, and MaryAnne helped us find a schedule that suited our needs perfectly, providing advice on length of stay in each area and where to stay. She was happy to repeatedly tweak the itinerary according to our latest ideas/whims. Great knowledge, great service.
DR, London | February 2018 | Under 35 | With Partner
This is our 4th trip with JLA and we have never been disappointed.
LP, Honiton | February 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
We found the travel arrangements worked seamlessly, not a single hitch all the way through the month. And having flights at civilized times of day was a bonus we didn't appreciate until we got there.
AS, Frome | February 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
Great experience from JLA from start to end.
JD, Bristol | February 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
JLA - Just Love Adventures with YOU
AH, Bedworth | February 2018 | 65 and over
JLA has helped to open up a whole new world of experiences for me in Latin America. I cannot praise their knowledge, professionalism and efficiency too highly. Perhaps even more important is the sense of enthusiasm and excitement one gets from the whole team.
DM, Nottingham | January 2018 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller
The whole experience with Journey Latin America was wonderful and we would not hesitate to book another adventure with you.
CD, Shepton mallet | January 2018 | 50 - 65 | Family
JLA helped us plan a fantastic honey-moon - letting us see all the parts of Patagonia we'd long wanted to visit (and to pack in some relaxation among the Chilean vines!) - they made the whole experience easy for us from start to finish.
RB, London | January 2018 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
This was my third visit to Latin America with your help (previously Mexico and Brazil) and everything worked as on the previous holidays. Complex arrangements and pick-ups worked like clockwork!
MK, Brentford | January 2018 | 65 and over | With Partner
As I usually travel alone it was great to have transport, accommodation and trips already organised so that I could enjoy my time more relaxed . ( apart from the lack of sleep).
FB, | January 2018 | 65 and over
Attention to detail superb, no mishaps, and not a thing went awry - considering we did so much it was excellent organisation. Would totally recommend it to anyone remotely unsure about going to South America. Drivers and pickers uppers were super.
JT, Bristol | January 2018 | 50 - 65
This was such a good trip, with varying sights and weather, from the tropics to perishing Patagonia!
AW, Orpington | December 2017 | 50 - 65
I truly mean it when I say that I don't feel it could have been improved. I cannot thank Mary and everyone that helped us enough.
MP, London | December 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Another great trip to a magnificent part of the world. Thanks Sophie.
JW, Bedford | December 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We had a great trip and the support of JLA helped it to be much more relaxing than if we had tried to organise it ourselves.
SB, Milnthorpe | December 2017 | 65 and over
We really appreciate all the support and advice we have had from Journey Latin America. We would unhesitatingly recommend JLA as our preferred adviser/organiser of future trips to Latin America.
RL, London | December 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
This was absolutely amazing holiday. Everything was perfect. No bad days.
SW, Crewe | December 2017 | Under 35
The organisation and package was excellent. Comprehensive.A fantastic tour.
RW, | December 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Again, I was most satisfied with your agent's helpfulness. The trip provided a complete South American experience for us.
GOR, | November 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
This was a truly memorable holiday, seeing not only Easter Island but also all parts of Chile. We were really lucky with the weather, too!
WM, Wallingford | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
We don't think of going to Latin America with thinking of JLA. We have been with you several times before over the years and we mention your name whenever anyone talks of going to the continent. We're becoming so boring, I'm thinking of asking for a commission. Every detail has been thought of and we love it.
NB, Esher | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
A well thought out tour with a good balance of culture, scenery and larger towns. The tour leader was excellent and the local guides were friendly and knowledgeable with great enthusiasm for their subjects. Good value for money and would have no problem with recommending JLA and will almost certainly use the company again.
SW, Broxbourne | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
JLA put together a fantastic trip that met all our requirements for sights and experiences. She also understood the sort of hotels , in the right places that we would like. Good job !
HJ, | November 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
We could not have enjoyed our holiday more - one of the best ever with such fantastic contrasts. My thanks to Sophie and the local team for all their advice and guidance. We did not want to come home...... Thank you
DD, Sutton coldfield | November 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
South America did not disappoint. Full on visual experience with so much new history to take on board.
AE, Frinton-on-sea | November 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
Chile has so many outstanding sites and it's services work really well.
HM, Bristol | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
First trip to Latin America and we loved it. Will definitely be going again. Having a trip arranged for us and being met and supported through every step may not be everyone's idea of independent travel but it makes a massive difference if you are new to a country/continent and have a limited time. Thank you Journey Latin America! We chose you because we used to live in Chiswick and walked past your offices every day. I think we made the right choice and will definitely be using you again.
TA, Edinburgh | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | Family
The support from the UK office throughout our trip was excellent - any query we had was answered promptly allaying any worries we had.
KT, Andover | November 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Friends
All in all it was a really great experience. We appreciated the excellent service so much and it made for such a memorable trip. We would definitely recommend Journey Latin America to friends and family. Everything was handled well from start to finish.
HG, Malvern | October 2017 | 35 - 50 | Family
Communication and planning were very easy with Journey Latin America. They have full knowledge of the area so they are able to really make a tailor made holiday! It was well worth the money having everything done through an agency.
LB, London | October 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Jam packed itinerary with so many great places and sights in such a short time! Iguacu Falls, Rio, La Paz, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu- it really had it all. We had a great tour guide; informative, knowledgeable and extremely personable, with a wealth of knowledge and a genuine passion for South America. Logistics were seamless- first time travelling to South America, first time travelling solo- highly recommend it!
LM, London | September 2017 | Under 35 | Solo Traveller
Very well planned
MB, Stoke-on-trent | September 2017 | 50 - 65
Airport transfers all efficient & good quality vehicles. All guides nice & friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Andean Adventures were a good/responsible operator.
ER, Reigate | September 2017 | 35 - 50 | Family
Our Yucatan experience was amazing. The Mayan ruins were breathtaking. Local people were welcoming and couldn;t do enough to make our trip a success. Quinta Chab Nal, Mayaland Bungalows, Hotel Don Gustavo ad Hip Hotel were wonderful. A simply wonderful experience.
KS, Oldham | September 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you.
MH, Manchester | September 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We had an amazing time in Colombia. The itinerary was fantastic, covering nearly everything we wanted to see. Our tour leader did a great job in making the tour run smoothly and contributing to our experience. I would thoroughly recommend Colombia and JLA.
IR, London | September 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Overall an absolutely fantastic holiday. Arranged at last minute, there is no way that we would have been able to organise something like this on our own. Everything ran smoothly, the group leader was extremely helpful and the group got on very well together, in spite of a large age range. Thanks very much!
RP, Kettering | September 2017 | Under 35 | With Partner
The whole trip was planned perfectly and I would not hesitate to recommend JLA to anyone. The sequence of areas we visited was ideal and the App contained all relevant documents and information for easy access. We were provided with maps showing the routes for driving to each destination and every hotel was well chosen. A flight delay on the way out meant that our connecting flight was missed and JLA revised the itinerary and arranged an internal flight to minimise the time lost. Excellent service.
AD, Ilkley | September 2017 | 50 - 65 | Family
We cannot overstate how good Antonio was as a guide and company. HE was very alive to our abilities and played these to make sure we got the most out of the trip.
TT, Bolton | September 2017 | 50 - 65
Everything from start to finish was done with accuracy. Jamie replied quickly to any questions.All flight /hotel vouchers/excursion vouchers were correct and given to us at the correct time.All guides and drivers were pleasant and always on time. We had a fabulous holiday. Thank you.
DC, Northallerton | June 2017 | 50 - 65
Thank you.A most wonderful holiday, totally stress free owing to your superb organisation and great support from local representatives...There is nothing that we can think of that would have improved our experience.
CC, Bristol | June 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Without a doubt, the best guided tour of several countries I have ever had. The support before and during the holiday was exceptional and transitioning between so many hotels, sites and countries was absolutely seamless. Thank you for such a great holiday.
MP, Amersham | June 2017 | Under 35
We have, over the last ten years, come to trust JLA to facilitate our wishes in a friendly, efficient and reasonably cost-effective manner. Thank you all.
RP, Devizes | June 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner

Excellent tour which is a great way to see a lot of different parts of cuba in a short time.
RE, St. albans | June 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Overall we had a fantastic trip, everything was well planned and organised - we were even taken right onto tulum where we had rented a villa separately, including picking up our friends at the airport!
MK, London | June 2017 | 35 - 50
I have made 4 trips to South America and this is my third trip with JLA -but the first tailor-made. I have always had great service both from the JLA London office, JLA tour leaders and local agencies/guides but this trip has exceeded my expectations.
NR, London | June 2017 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller
A really interesting, varied and contrasting tour encapsulating the spirit of Central America. Excellent value and made even more enjoyable by a fantastic tour guide.
RG, Bishopton | May 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
It was a fabulous trip, worth every penny and I loved every moment!
MMS, Wallington | May 2017 | 50 - 65
I have used you 3 times now - all with hire cars. I trust your help and advice and would use you again . Annerys was great and the LAT support was helpful. I knew that there would always be someone there for advice. The issue of car hire is important as it can be difficult to be sure the insurance is perfect in a country where the rules are different and one doesn't speak the language fluently.
AH, London | May 2017 | 65 and over
This was my second trip to Cuba with you. For me it is the son and salsa, the dancing at the Casas de la Trova and the delightful people that has made me fall for this country. It will be interesting to see if I can now tick this box and call it a day.
MF, London | May 2017 | 65 and over | With Friends
This was my second group trip to South America with JLA and it was just as fantastic - seeing the main sites such as Machu Picchu but also less well-known or off the tourist radar such as the inside of an Inca house in Ollytaytambo that added an extra insight to the culture and local way of life.
DK, Dover | May 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
I am totally deaf and significantly disabled. Your tour guides and Carolyn did an amazing job which enabled me to have a superb experience. I should add that the other 2 tour clients also helped me considerably. We got on well and I tried hard not to restrict their trip or be too much of a burden This was my second trip with JLA and each time Alex has organised me very well! Please pass on my thanks to Carolyn and the other tour guides.
PC, Broughton-in-furness | May 2017 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller
I thought you provided an excellent itinerary with just the right amount of guided expeditions and time to explore for ourselves. Everything worked very smoothly and we gained confidence in a country that was very unfamiliar to us.
SP, | May 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Eduardo our tour guide was fantastic. He wanted us to leave with a positive view of El Salvador.
PH, | May 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Friends
This was our second trip with you and we have again been very pleased with the whole experience: if we are going to spend money on a holiday, we want to know that the company are real experts, and that everything will be done efficiently and professionally. Thank you!
LK, Gerrards cross | April 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
An excellent travel experience from start to finish, clearly the experts in South America.
IM, Chippenham | April 2017 | 35 - 50 | Family
Loved it. Thanks so much to everyone but particularly Mary.
PC, Hereford | April 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
This was my 8th trip to the wonderful continent of South America. Usually I have booked my own things; choosing JLA due to time pressures in a busy life, it was great to have half the holiday arranged by your expert team and the big delight was being greeted at the airports and looked after until we got to our accommodation. Many thanks!
RK, Worcester | April 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Very well planned trip, thanks to Sophie.

EJ, Tregaron | April 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
The trip surpassed our expectations and I have already recommended Journey Latin America to friends and even to people I talked to on a bus in Machu Picchu, one of whom was from the U.S.A.
PK, Ashton-under-lyne | April 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
This was my second trip with JLA and again I found you extremely professional with excellent staff making my booking/holiday experience very personal.

JK, Sheffield | April 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
I had previously travelled with you to Peru, Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. Was so impressed then, decided you were the best company to use in the region. I like the smaller groups, 16 on my first trips and this time 10 in Cuba and 17 in Central America. Your guides are definitely the best having talked to people who've used other companies. They are full of ideas and advice re places to visit or activities or restaurants to go to during the at leisure times! A wonderful 6 weeks. Thank you.
DO, Reading | April 2017 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller

SLH, Poulton-le-fylde | April 2017 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller

Really pleased with our visit - the timing was perfect as we are sure Cuba will change dramatically in coming years. Go now to experience its full and distinctive charm.

JM, Whitley bay | March 2017 | 50 - 65 | Family
Fantastic a wonderful trip. We are going to learn some Spanish before we return as that was our only disappointment not being able to really converse with our great hosts. We will be back!
TC, Chepstow | March 2017 | 50 - 65
Easy to communicate with, all the transfers and excursions were exactly on time. Great experience.

Awesome holiday thank you to JLA for allowing me to return to some special places that I went to 30 years ago and this time share them with my lovely wife. Having the itinerary to give to family at home was really helpful.
PD, Birmingham | March 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
The Journey Latin America experience greatly enhanced my enjoyment and understanding of the culture and customs of Chile.
JT, York | March 2017 | 65 and over | With Friends
You've organised several complex bespoke trips for us - all of which have been superb and this one proved to be no exception. Your choice of ground agents has proved to be very sound. All transfers and arrangements went incredibly smoothly. Knowing that Journey Latin America have arranged everything frees us from any anxiety during the holiday.
LB, Windsor | March 2017 | 65 and over
A great trip, well planned and organised, and expertly led. Thank you.

We have now enjoyed two excellent trips with JLA. We have been so impressed with the organisation and efficiency. JLA have certainly introduced us to an exciting, vibrant and colourful continent and wetted our appetite to travel further in this part of the world. Thank you!

I cannot imagine travelling to Latin America with anyone other than JLA. They again proved that they are the best in the business. After our first visit to South America I thought it would be a hard standard to live up to, but this trip proved me wrong.
TS, Pontefract | February 2017 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
The set up of the holiday, the itinerary, its execution, and the selection of agents and places to stay were uniformly excellent (excepting the one hiccup in Ushuaia noted above). If I was to return to Latin America, I would absolutely use JLA.
CT, Chesterfield | February 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
I was so impressed by the service JLA provided - both beforehand in helping me to organise the perfect holiday to suit me and my interests and then in making sure everything worked smoothly during the trip itself. It all ran like clockwork. I have fallen in love with South America and will definitely be going back!
LN, Billericay | February 2017 | 35 - 50
I travelled with my daughter,it was a most wonderful experience for both of us,the people were friendly and Peru was so diverse a trip to remember.

JH, Rochdale | February 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
A wonderful trip thoroughly enjoyed the Eagle tour. An excellent guide, Adrian throughout. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
SH, Mansfield | February 2017 | 50 - 65
On our fifth trip with JLA we have always found the organisation to be excellent and reliable. Its good to have knowledgeable tour leaders and to stay in individual style hotels where appropriate.
CS, Lymington | February 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
Cuba exceeded my expectations : it is beautiful architecturally and naturally, fascinating historically, politically and economically and so full of life. Thanks to JLA for letting me get under the skin of Cuba just a little.
HF, London | February 2017 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Second time travelling with JLA and would not hesitate to use you again.

We would like to single out the exceptional service from the ground agents, Costa Rica Expeditions.
DS, Coventry | January 2017 | 65 and over
Margot did a magnificent job on my trip she pulled out all the stops and made my trip to Peru memorable beyond belief. I would definitely be using your service again for my trip to Brazil.
DC, London | January 2017 | 50 - 65
Despite all the information available generally on the net it was great to have your assistance and our trip wouldn't have been as rich without it - your website, the guides to take with us and particularly Margot's knowledge were invaluable.
AB, Fordingbridge | January 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
A really interesting trip. We just wanted to keep travelling. Five weeks was too short.

It was a fantastic family for our family and very well-organised. We would definitely recommend you to our friends.
SL, London | January 2017 | 50 - 65 | Family
Daniele really made this trip relaxed and great fun, he has to be the best guide we have ever traveled with. Lots of ad hoc walks and talks during the road trips and in the evenings plus local drivers & guides provided a great insight to Ecuadorian life past and present. The guide on the Galapagos was very knowledgeable and paced the excursions to the match the abilities of the group. Travelling with a friendly group is always a bonus & the people on this tour were all fantastic company.
JG, Redcar | January 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
'Eagle' was an epic trip within all of its parameters; geographic, cultural, historic and culinary. I would not hesitate to recommend it, especially if it was led by Jessica who is simply the best Tour Leader I have had the pleasure of holidaying with.
RB, Henley-on-thames | January 2017 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We had an unforgettable journey and were very satisfied indeed with the support and logistical assistance which JLA provided in helping us to get just the right itinerary.

JF, Cambridge | January 2017 | 65 and over | With Partner
I have used JLA many times over the years, Peru for flights and info, Chile, Guatemala/Belize, Costa Rica twice. I have recommended to friends who have tavelled with you to Cuba and Centra Americam tour. So I bloody love you and will continue travelling with you and recommending, knowing that your standards are high, but as long as the knees hold out.
ASP, Bexhill-on-sea | January 2017 | 50 - 65
We have travelled with JLA on several occasions throughout South America. Booking with JLA means peace of mind, expert and helpful advice, reliable pick ups and travel arrangements and expert and informative tour leaders and local guides. A holiday should be free of worry and JLA take care of everything!
CR, Bath | December 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner
We arranged our own transatlantic flight and itinerary and then handed it to JLA. They were really helpful, cooperative, flexible and removed all the independent traveller hassle.
NH, Dunmow | December 2016 | 65 and over | With Friends
This was my third holiday with Journey Latin America, and once again all aspects of the service that I received was very good. Etienne was a great tour leader, and it was a pleasure to be in his company. I would not hesitate to recommend Journey Latin America to anyone, wishing to visit South America.
PH, Basildon | December 2016 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
An excellent experience, well organised with good choice of hotels and trips and excellent guides.

The whole trip was extremely well organised including flights. All guides and reps were on time at the required collection points. The standard of the majority of hotels was excellent.
ME, Maidstone | December 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Considering the length of our trip, 5 weeks of flights, tours, hotels, guides and transfers it is amazing that it went exactly to plan. We recommended JLA to other travellers during the holiday and do so now.
JW, London | December 2016 | 65 and over
Overall: excellent itinerary, knowledgeable, friendly, efficient staff. Stunning locations. We had an amazing holiday. Thanks Konrad and thanks JLA! Excellent value!

Thank you. We had a great time, a great experience ( helped by the great weather mind you!!)
BD, Oswestry | December 2016 | 50 - 65
I don't think we would have enjoyed our holidays as much or made the most of it, if we didn't have the support from JLA. I particularly enjoyed the tailor-made itinerary, fully satisfying our needs.
US, London | December 2016 | 50 - 65
All of it exceeded our expectations. Every part was different and fascinating...it's all memorable!
EG, Chatham | November 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner

PD, Stockport | November 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
Not decided yet where we would wish to go, but already recommended JLA to others. We were perhaps lucky with the size (12) and mix of our group, but our tour leader was the all-important link who made the group gel, and who made the trip special.
RW, Glasgow | November 2016 | 50 - 65 | Family
Action-packed eco-holiday in beautiful Ecuador giving a real insight into the way people live alongside a pristine environment. Exercise at altitude gave us a challenge which rose to and enjoyed. Great thought and care went into this itinerary.
MP, Hemel Hempstead | November 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
We were recommended to you, and specifically to Caroline M, by a good friend of ours who has used you a number of times. The whole experience has been characterized by professionalism and excellent organization that contributed to a memorable holiday.
HR, | November 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
It was a memorable journey, and I appreciated the local knowledge of JLA. All arrangements went smoothly, and the only real problem was something unpredictable.
GM, London | November 2016 | 65 and over
I felt the Jacana Tour was a fabulous way to see a great deal of South America in 19 days, providing an excellent variety of sights and tours without feeling that it was a rushed experience. A fabulous JLA holiday.
JP, Holmfirth | November 2016 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Very well organised and well run!
RN, London | November 2016 | 65 and over | With Friends
We were originally due to travel with another tour operator- however we found them very difficult to deal with and they struggled to understand our requirements. Our biggest wish was to visit the Iguazu falls by full moon which they seemed to struggle with arranging. We then discovered Journey Latin America and within days of speaking to Hannah we had the tour quoted for, arranged and booked! We then also decided to extend our trip to Uruguay which Hannah helped us with too - the whole package met exactly what we wanted! So very happy indeed with Journey Latin America and I would not hesitate to recommend.
JW, Aylesbury | November 2016 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Excellent service from Journeys Latin America we even had a complimentary upgrade on our Galapagos Cruise!
Thank you Mary Anne and JLA for the most wonderful holiday.

SS, Teddington | September 2016 | 50 - 65 | Family
A sensatioanl couple of back to back trips, one tailor made, one a small group tour. Both equally excellent in their own way. Your ability to cope in a crisis was exemplary, well managed, well communicated and everyone made rational sensible decisions.
JR, Plymouth | September 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
I had a brilliant trip. The experiences were varied the people great company and the tour leader exceptional. What's not to love!

JM, Minehead | September 2016 | 65 and over | Solo Traveller
Our good experience owed much to the excellence of the guides provided - and, we want to add, the drivers. Not only good at driving, which they need to be in those places, they were all friendly helpful and good company, sometimes over long journeys. Overall, a big thank you, following a very memorable month of travels.

This is the best family holiday we have ever had. Even our 20 year old daughter, who has travelled extensively, agreed that Costa Rica is wonderfully unique. The itinerary provided by Joirney Latin America provided a varied and interestingly diverse view of the country. Each accommodation was memorable and contributed towards an amazing trip. Thank you.
RW, Cheltenham | August 2016 | 50 - 65 | Family

DR, Southport | June 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner
Overall a very enjoyable trip - some long days and early starts but was easily do-able for a group mainly consisting of people in their 50s and 60s. Saw many amazing sights. Excellent organisation - everything worked - buses, flights, pick ups, minibuses, coaches, boats, trains etc! Never arrived anywhere and there was no-one to meet us. Had a great holiday!
LB, New Malden | June 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Friends
A wonderful trip combining exploration, education and adventure with some relaxation at the end. We learned about the Maya and wildlife from our knowledgeable guides.
SB, London | June 2016 | 50 - 65 | Family
Our 3 week holiday was a really wonderful experience throughout. We stayed in 4 countries and visited 2 others and took 10 flight in all - internal, international and transatlantic and miraculously all flights were on time, no baggage was mislaid or delayed and we were always met on arrival which is quite an achievement on such a complicated schedule. LAN and Air France airlines impressed us.
MS, London | May 2016 | 65 and over | With Friends
JLA provided great planning from the start to the end, took all the hassle out of booking flights, bus, train and mini bus travel. Included excursions were excellent and well thought out, with a great tour leader.

We found our whole holiday experience excellent. It was nice to be able to see so much in 2 weeks whilst still feeling relaxed as we were looked after so well by all our guides. The personal itinerary and help we received made a huge difference to us and we were impressed by the standard of all our hotels. The only problem was that we wished we had longer so we could of seen more.
HB, Abingdon | April 2016 | Under 35 | With Partner

GF, London | April 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner
We have had an excellent holiday and we consider the service received from Hannah as especially outstanding. We appreciate that South America is a growing market for the UK. For you to maintain and grow market share we feel you are very reliant on the local agents understanding the very high standards you expect for your clients.

CR, Reigate | March 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner
A real feeling for what we wanted out of a relatively short visit to such a vast country but at a sympathetic tempo so that we weren't completely exhausted! Great attention to detail too.
AD, London | March 2016 | 65 and over | With Friends
I've spent a lot of time in Latin America over the last 17 years both on tours and independently. This was only my second trip with JLA but they really are the best with regard to local experience and tour leaders who both know and love the areas they cover.

SD, | March 2016 | 50 - 65
Guides were excellent. Punctuality 100 percent
HCB, Yeovil | March 2016 | 50 - 65
sites but it is the colours and flavours of the cities and towns you visit and the warmth and kindness of the people, particularly in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras, that really make this a wonderful trip. There are some long journeys but it is a real opportunity to see life as it is lived by the locals. Visit beautiful islands, see amazing wildlife, try fabulous local food and enjoy these wonderful countries. It's an adventure and an experience.
CP, London | March 2016 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Hannah was extremely helpful, a great asset to your company. We made quite a few of our own arrangements but would particularly recommend the wine tours in Mendoza, the free walking tours in Buenos Aires ...you only pay the tip. We organised two three day outings in Bariloche. The seven lakes, a day up to my. Tronador, which was fantastic and a trip to Victoria Island, all excellent.
EG, Dorking | March 2016 | 65 and over
We have been very impressed with the whole experience of booking with you. The holiday was memorable because the organisation was faultless. Everything ran smoothly including all flights and transfers and the Belmond hotels were exquisite. Many thanks.

We had a wonderful holiday that we talk about to all our friends. We will certainly call on you again when our next trip is planned.
PJ, London | February 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner

Overall an excellent holiday.
MK, Hassocks | January 2016 | 65 and over
We had a fabulous time thanks to a well planned itinerary and vey helpful on the ground support. Despite all the travelling we remained relaxed all the way until we collapsed when we got home! It was such a brilliant experience, the scenery, the ambience, the food, the flora and fauna, conversing with people where we did not speak a common language, and even the border crossings.
SC, Cheltenham | January 2016 | 65 and over | With Partner
Our first organised be spoke holiday through an operator with JLA exceeded our expectations. Within our budget they maintained a high level of varied accommodation, excellent transfers and guides, informative and fun excursions and very good value for money.
JM, Callander | January 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
A wonderful trip to a stunning country, with a great itinery to magical towns. JLA has, once again, provided us with an amazing and memorable experience.
ES, Brackley | January 2016 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
This was one of the very best holidays I have ever had. From start to finish the service was excellent, Lina was always helpful and the representatives in Costa Rica and Nicaragua were top class. Sometimes we booked tours directly but I wished we had booked them all through JLA as they always had the best guides. The tailor made holiday with private guides really suited us and it's a style of holiday we would like to take again. The other thing to mention is the drivers - they were all extremely good and we always felt safe during all the transfers.
JW, Weymouth | January 2016 | 35 - 50 | With Partner
Sophie understood our requirements superbly, and arranged a brilliant trip at a very good price. We loved Guatemala and Belize and this has given us a desire to explore more of Central and South America. We have been very impressed with your service, and shall definitely be using JLA again.

I had travelled on a small group tour to Peru with JLA previously, so was fully expecting to be able to completely relax, safe in the knowledge that everything would be taken care of.

The holiday left us wanting to return to explore other parts of the continent and we would certainly travel with JLA again.
EJ, Chorley | November 2015 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
It's been very good over all, your organizational skills and emergency phone line, which we needed when our flight from Juliaca was canceled are excellent. We both enjoyed our holiday immensely.
PLP, London | November 2015 | 65 and over | With Partner
It's been a positive experience on both holidays and we have felt well looked after and our needs put first whenever possible - particularly changes to itineraries on the ground...It was really interesting going to two very dissimilar countries and cultures. We really liked the people in both who tried their very best to be helpful and informative.

We have great confidence in JLA. The itinerary schedule runs like clockwork, with nothing to worry about.

We have been impressed with the overall level of service and support throughout. We are experienced travellers and well able to judge the overall service. Our tour leader was excellent, and we received (are receiving) excellent support over the cancellation of our first flight and the missed connection that followed. Thank you
DI, Halstead | October 2015 | 50 - 65 | Family
JLA is one of the best Tour Operators I have been with - nothing in the booking process was too much trouble They stick to specialising in one Continent, the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and the Tour Groups small A pity more of their competitors don't take a leaf out of their books
LS, Didcot | September 2015 | 50 - 65 | Family
No problems, everything was spot on and would definitely use you again sometime in the future.

Fantastic countries and excellent trip - could have done to build in more breaks to relax but we were time pressured and wanted to see as much as we could while there. Bolivia was our favourite of the two as it was quieter, less touristy and we hadn't known much about it prior to going so a lovely surprise Thank you to Lina Fuller for sorting out the itinerary

Overall an excellent holiday. Weather was very good which always helps.

This is the third time that we have arranged a trip via JLA and they need not disappoint again. This time they put together a holiday to cater for the needs and interests of 3 children aged 11 - 3 and they surpassed themselves. All the children loved the holiday as did my husband and I. We would like to return asap.
EdVC, London | August 2015 | 35 - 50
This was our second trip with JLA and, as with the first, we had a fantastic trip and a wonderful experience. JLA's knowledge and experience of Latin America shone through in the organisation of the trip as a whole, and all the individual trips and options. We would whole-heartedly recommend JLA to anyone contemplating a trip to Latin America and we will definitely be booking another tour with JLA in the future.
DL, Twickenham | August 2015 | 50 - 65
Too many highlights to mention - a fantastic itinerary.

This is my third trip with JLA after a gap of 7 years - and they continue to deliver! A great trip and I cannot wait to go back. Excellent local knowledge, sensitive to local customs and cultures; my only complaint is that it went too quickly!

We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our holiday and would like to thank Journey Latin America for arranging it,in particular Jack Brooker (pre-tour) and Etienne Frans (on tour).
JR, Swansea | August 2015 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
journeys Latin America was terrific. They did not miss a beat. It made the planning and the vacation itself stress free.
BL, | August 2015 | 50 - 65 | Family
We had a really exceptional trip. The mix of beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife made it a real adventure and yet the logistics made it achievable and stress free. Costa Rica has beaches, wildlife and lots of outdoor fun (zip lines, rafting, and ATV trails for example) which make it ideal for a holiday which met the desires of all the family.

Overall, the holiday was excellent. As a single traveller, it was great that the group - a mixture of couples, pairs and singles got on very well together, which added to the enjoyment. The specialist guides were very good especially Rosa, our guide at Cusco, Machu Picchu and Pisac. (Travelled to Peru).

We all really thorougly enjoyed our time in Cuba and we would recommend it to anyone and if they were going, your staff on the ground were superlative from restaurants to lost luggage they coped with it calmly and efficiently. ( Travelled to Cuba).
DM Edinburgh | April 2015 | 35 - 50 | Family
Having travelled with a number of different companies in the past, I was really impressed with the depth of knowledge and professionalism of JLA and the opportunity to trial to a part of Peru not usually visited by many tourists. (Travelled on Tico Tico group tour)
FS London | April 2015 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
Have travelled with Journey Latin America twice now, and both times the holidays have been excellent, most enjoyable and problem free. The itineraries were well planned and varied enabling visits to very contrasting places. I appreciated the local knowledge and attention to detail. This time I was travelling on my own for the first time and felt reassured that Journey Latin America were there if support was needed.
JR Cambridge | April 2015 | 50 - 65 | Solo Traveller
This is the third tailor-made holiday we have taken with JLA (Argentina/Uruguay in 2004, Honduras in 2014 and Colombia in 2015) and they have all been memorable. Some travel operators are a lot less flexible in adjusting their standard tours to meet individual requirements. We enjoy the personalised service from JLA in London and like the fact that the local agents they use in their destinations know what is expected and deliver. Foreign travel is expensive these days but we feel we have had good service and value for money.

I have previously used JLA for business trips to Brazil but this was the first time I have used you purely for a leisure trip and this was a truly exceptional experience one we would like to repeat again in other parts of Brazil and other countries in South America.(Travelled to Brazil)
JH Dorking | March 2015 | 65 and over | With Partner
We would like to visit Patagonia especially if Elizabeth Luck is the tour guide. I would go so far as to say that I would now check if she was the tour guide before I booked. She was fantastic. What a woman! ( Travelled on Jacana group tour)
NS | March 2015 | 50 - 65
We had a really great trip and would recommend it highly to anyone. We loved Guatemala and the people we met there. We never felt in danger or threatened at all. The holiday contained so many elements that I don't think we would ever want to have just a beach holiday again! It was extremely well organised and everything went to plan. Thank you! ( Travelled to Guatemala).
LM Reading | March 2015 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
A wonderful 3 weeks during which we saw so much, learnt a lot about the history and current situation in some very beautiful countries, and broadened our horizons. It was an experience more people should try. We felt very safe everywhere we went and the travelling was made simply by our excellent tour leader. Central America has a lot to offer and the people are lovely. ( Travelled on Alcion group tour)
MW Talybont | March 2015 | 50 - 65 | With Partner
An amazing experience. Elizabeth is an excellent tour leader and is a great ambassador for JLA.She made the holiday a very special trip. ( Travelled on Jacana group tour)

Having travelled with Journey Latin America to Guatemala and Belize about 5 years ago, we were very much looking forward to the JLA experience in Cuba. We were not disappointed - another extremely well arranged trip by a very well informed representative in Jamie with a busy, but relaxing, tour of Cuba that took in Havana, Pinar del Rio, Vinales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Cayo Santa Maria. A balance of excellent local guides, the opportunity to explore yourself (or by arranging local tours), and reliable and safe transfers.(Travelled to Cuba)

This was a well organised and well paced trip, ending in Antigua for the Easter celebrations. All the hotels were clean and comfortable, and most were owned by locals. All were close to town centres. With a competent, experienced tour leader, this was an excellent trip. ( Travelled on Alcion group tour)

family here in the UK, every time the reaction was ' why go there'? A perception that it is dangerous and still in revolution appears to exist. Nothing could be further from reality we felt. Leon is probably still living and relying on the revolution to tell its stories to tourists but everywhere we found friendly people and that made the experience fantastic. We met some really interesting travelers from other parts of Latin America and already made good new friends. We will visit again. (Travelled to Nicaragua)

Your company came highly recommended, and lived up to expectations. Your London-based service was excellent; all the documentation was precise, accurate and informative, and your on-site reps in Argentina and Chile also very good. ( Travelled to Argentina & Chile ).
ID London | February 2015 | 65 and over | With Partner
Despite a few minor issues, not the fault of JLA, we had one of our best trips ever. We have done a lot of travelling so know what we want and what works for us, and JLA exceeded our expectations in almost every way By this I mean that what was promised was delivered in terms of accommodation and activities, all the internal flights and transfers worked, the local guides knew their stuff, and the way Caroline planned it with us meant that we spent just about the right amount of time in each location given that we only had just over three weeks to complete the whole trip. It was quite a busy itinerary, but due to the expertise of JLA the trip went very well indeed, and is one of the most memorable we have done. We would always use JLA to help us with travel in Latin America, and hope to visit again in the future. ( Travelled on multi country trip)
PN Guildford | February 2015 | 50 - 65 | With Partner

This was a great trip taking in all the highlights of Chile and southern Patagonia before finishing off with a visit to Buenos Aires. The highlight was hiking in Torres del Paine but there were memorable moments throughout. Our tour leader Daniele was excellent throughout, helping everybody achieve their individual goals and really adding to the group holiday experience. ( (Travelled to Chile and Argentina)

TAK Ilkley | December 2014 | 65 and over | With Partner
The whole experience was amazing, from the discussions with Adam while planning the trip, Antonio's handling of my flight changes at the start and the tour itself. You have some very skilled and talented people working for you. Our tour leader, Daniele was very knowledgeable about the places visited and helped to make it a special trip. I can also say that I cannot remember laughing as much as I did on this trip. ( Travelled on Alcion 2014 group tour)

We do don't normally write reviews that contain only superlatives, but this trip was hard to fault. The whole itinery went like clockwork, and the expedition was breathtaking (out of the world, well almost!) For one of us this trip was a dream for a very long time. That almost always means some disappointment, but this trip was the exception. Well done Journey Latin America. (Travelled to Argentina and Antarctica)

We were very impressed with our first experience of travelling with JLA. We have been to several South and Central American countries before and had underestimated the impact that Mexico would have on us. It had such a variety of experiences to offer, the colour, music, the many different and dramatic archaeological sites and political history. The ethnic mix added to the diversity and the people were all a delight to meet. JLA allowed us to experience this in its selection of places, accommodation, excursions and especially the tour guide.
