What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Patagonia, the scenery and wildlife, getting up close to a glacier, Easter Island fulfilling a childhood dream and much more, the perfect volcano, Osorno, the geology and flamingoes of the Atacama. Santiago and Buenos Aires both quite different but equally fascinating.EL, London
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
Most Memorable Moment: "Too many to mention!Perhaps Champions parade in Rio - front row seats - fabulous! May be Torres del Paine - fabulous hotel Tierra Patagonia- outstanding scenery. Memorable moment -perhaps driving around Lake Llanquihue gradually seeing the mist clear to beautiful clear blue skies and lake and seeing The Osorno Volcano appear with low cloud drifting across its centre just as we across a very pretty lakeside café with no one there and being able to sit in the warm sunshine quite alone and enjoy the most spectacular view."JM, Wantage
Highlights?: Flying over the Andes Getting close to the Glacier in Patagonia View from Costanero Tower in Santiago The list goes onDW, Winchester
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
The whole experience of Atacama and Torres del Paine was amazing. In between Puerto Varas provided a welcome and relaxing contrast. The introductory tours of Santiago and Valparaiso worked very well and the guides were great... but experience tame compared to the other three destinations! Matetic was a fun last day/night.KH, London
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
Long way to go but thoroughly enjoyed just concentrating on one country i.e. Chile which our destinations covered in detail from top to toe and made us feel that we had really experienced life in Chile.CF, Worthing
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
The lasting impressions of this great country will be with me forever. So will the fantastic photos and memories.PC, Hereford
I was amazed and enthralled by Chile and am looking forward to visiting again.DP, Chiswick
Highlights?: Afternoon trek in the Moon Valley Atacama to see the sunset. It was magical. Patagonian 12K trek to Grey Glacier and boat trip to face of glacier. Rapa Nui to see the Moai at the quarry and Tongariki.GB, Lytham st. annes
Chile felt safe and modest, a delight to visit.NH, Bridgewater
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the trip or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten degrees. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was, standing in silence at the Pia Glacier.RW, Cyprus
We loved all of southern Patagonia but four days at the Explora was undoubtedly the highlight.NM, London
Highlights:- Chile was just fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both Patagonia and Atacama. Really quite memorable.MR
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
The picnic by Lake Pehoe provided by The Singular was exceptional- totally exceeded our expectations.YLS,
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
Numerous memories but seeing a puma emerge from bushes 10 paces or fewer away from us when returning from Mirador las Torres. It totally ignored us but gave us some shaky photos.EG, Hereford
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
We really enjoyed Easter Island but the Atacama was the most memorable part!ME, Caernarfon
Most memorable experience: "Sailing across the Magelllan Straits and getting off on Cape Horn. This was the key reason for my trip which was motivated by a dim and distant history lesson when I was 12 years old. To think that these treacherous waters were navigated and discovered by sailors in wooden boats over 500 years ago has always been a magical thought. Doing it in the comfort of 21st century luxury was a much better option for me but to think that I have walked in the footsteps of Magellan and later Darwin is quite something else."TEB, Grays
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
Highlights: Arrival at Tierra Patagonia hotel: and seeing two wild pumas nearby!PG, Oxford
Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.HJ,
