What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Highlight?: Easter Island and seeing the moai statues was a lifelong dream and did not disappoint. The guide was excellent a fantastic and beautiful island.LVA, Tamworth
From the point of view of JLA's organisation of our trip, the most memorable feature was the quality of the many small hotels we stayed in and the unforgettable views we so often had from our rooms. From the point of view of the trip itself, the most memorable places were 6 days of Torres del Paine in glorious sunshine and the indescribably wild and beautiful Southern Ocean.KB, Esher
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to say as so many. I think seeing the first upright statues on Easter Island as I've wanted to see them since I was a childBN, Marlborough
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
Highlights: Valparaiso was stunning and Vina Santa Cruz a pleasant, relaxing surprise.MS, Shaftesbury
Most Memorable Moment?: Rapa Nui - a unique environment with lots of architectural and historical interest and also comtemporary culture (Tapati festival). Very interesting.AB, Burnham-On-Crouch
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
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
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
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
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
I was amazed and enthralled by Chile and am looking forward to visiting again.DP, Chiswick
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, Trowbridge
We found the Chilean people very friendly, obliging & happy.EL, Winkleigh
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
Highlight?: Touring Easter Island, it was a unique experience, one that is very different to many resort islands that one can visit worldwide.DM, Newcastle upon tyne
Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
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,
Overall we have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.SJ, Welwyn
Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
Chile Best parts of the holiday: “Too many to name one but certainly Moon Valley, the salt lake lagoon, the Glacier at Torres de Paine”SJ, Welwyn
So many highlights- Tatio geyser, base of Torres del Paine walk, seeing puma and Easter Island memories for lifeHM, Bristol
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult! Vulcan Osorno, Moon Valley (even if not part of the arranged itinerary!), Tatio Geysers, Easter Island statues...RW, High peak
The picnic by Lake Pehoe provided by The Singular was exceptional- totally exceeded our expectations.YLS,
