What our clients say

  • 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)

  • A great option on the Tulum beach strip. None of the hotels in this part of Tulum have pools, but the beach is lovely. We were lucky that the seaweed wasn't too bad at the time of our visit.

  • The train journey from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu was amazing - the landscape was breathtaking, and the tour leader explained so much to us on the way.
    The whole trip was well-organised allowing our group to maximise the time we had in beautiful Peru. We covered a large distance, but the pace was just right, and the accommodation was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

  • 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.
