What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
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
Chile is a very safe, friendly and beautiful country.CP, Budleigh Salterton
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
Most memorable experience: "So much but probably Torres del Paine, breathtakingly beautiful and not crowded although it was the busiest part of the year. Also the friendliness of the people, and lack of hassle everywhere- the only place where there was a bit was in the fish market in Santiago, but even there it was very low key and the people were not at all pushy."MT, Henley-on-Thames
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
Our experience at Patagonia Camp was the most memorable part of the trip. Everyone at the camp really cared for the place and the experience they were providing for their clients, from the restaurant staff to the reception staff to the guides. They were all delightful to deal with and the guides in particular deserve special mention for their knowledge and commitment to the preservation of the TdP National Park and the ethos of the camp.RE, Knutsford
Highlight: Torres Del PaineCG, Amersham
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
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
The lasting impressions of this great country will be with me forever. So will the fantastic photos and memories.PC, Hereford

Highlights?: Flying over the Andes Getting close to the Glacier in Patagonia View from Costanero Tower in Santiago The list goes onDW, Winchester
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 found the Chilean people very friendly, obliging & happy.EL, Winkleigh
Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
The visit was basically divided into three separate parts - self driving on the Carretera Austral, the ferry cruise which I arranged separately, and the visit to Tierra Patagonia. In their very different ways, all were excellent and memorable.TAK, Ilkley
Highlights?: The time in Torres del Paine, both Patagonia Camp and the treks through the stunning scenery.AR, Reading
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. 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. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
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
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
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
Highlight: The Atacama DesertBL, Tunbridge wells
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
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
