What our clients say
Everything about Guatemala was a highlight, particularly the market at Chichicastenango and lake Atitlan.HN, Brentwood
Tour of Tikal was much appreciated. Guide was knowledgeable and it would have been difficult to learn as much on our ownNW, Wells
We knew nothing about Guatemala and Belize before our trip and had not visited Central America. We relied on JLA understanding our interests and the resulting recommendations proved very successful.NW, Wells
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to pick only 1! The ruins at Copan & Tikal were truly stunning and we also loved the costumes and villages in the HighlandsFC, Haywards Heath
We loved all of it for different reasons, what made the trip exceptional though was the ease of travelling facilitated by the local representatives.GW, Chinnor
