Guest Review from our Wake of Wallace voyage through the Eastern Indonesian Islands of Raja Ampat with expert guide and Wallace expert Tony Whitten.
“I am a biologist by profession...how could I pass up a trip that followed a part of Wallace's collecting route? The chance to visit one of the few remaining spots on earth that has not been overly disturbed by man was the main attraction.
Super trip!! Tony Whitten was outstanding… enthusiastic, funny, full of wit and wisdom and tireless. He is the personification of what you wanted your freshman biology professor to be. Knowledgeable, approachable, but mostly just bubbling over with enthusiasm for all things scientific and biological. For someone like me who started out doing field work as an undergrad but then get waylaid by bench science, having Tony along brought all the excitement of being in college field classes. When I suggested it would...
Guest Review from our Nicaragua Family Vacation
"The trip was wonderful! Wildland Adventures helped me plan my trip and get prepared perfectly!!
The activity our family enjoyed the most was the pottery experience, the horse and cart ride, and the walk on Mombacho!! Our trip leader, Lou, was miles beyond our expectations. She must be aone-in-a-lifetime guide. She guided us through the chaos of Granada with exceptional organization, insight, timing, warmth, cheerful spirits and charm. Lou seemed to know everyone everywhere personally - clearly a true and cherished friend to many of the Nicaraguans we met. It was so reassuring to be with someone who knew so much about the people and the country. After we parted ways, the kids both mentioned missing her and wanting to write her. Your most discerning and hard- to-impress visitors would be delighted, I'm sure, to be guided by Lou. Our driver Fran was...
Guest review from Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure
"Thanks for a great trip. We received excellent prep information. Having done many trips without a tour group, much of the information was a gentle reminder. The checklists were time saving and thoughtful.
Both lodges offered different experiences and they were both wonderful. Selva Bananito was amazing and different. The Shawanda Lodge was lovely with lots of wildlife on the grounds. I loved the snorkeling and experience in Cahuita. The waterfall hike and rappel was awesome. Other highlights were the boat ride and day at the Bribri Indigenous community, the salsa lesson and cooking lessons and the Sloth Sanctuary.
Alex Arias was professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He watched out for our comfort and safety and made sure that we had the best experience possible. He was able to teach us about the history of the country and the places we...
Fantastic note from a family who traveled with Wildland on our Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure.
"Alex is simply the best guide you could ever ask for on a trip. He is very professional. He clearly loves what he does and loves his country. He is very knowledgeable and excited to share it. He is sensitive to everyone’s needs and watching out and anticipating needs. He went out of his way to buy snacks, find us a laundry mat etc. As a parent traveling with three teenagers, I felt so at ease because he was looking out for them and for so many details. He made time to connect with each of my kids, make them laugh, get them excited about what they were doing, and have fun. We cannot say enough about him! My kids all said that they missed him when we came back home!”

Faye Holtz came to Wildland as an alumni traveler wanting to celebrate her 50th birthday. What better way than spend it cooking in the culinary capital of South America, visiting the ancient Incan ruins of Machu Picchu and exploring the canopy of the Amazon?! After 12 days of adventure travel in Peru here are some of Faye’s thoughts when asked about her Wildland Adventure:
“I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with…the service Gerhard and I received during the entire trip...Ruben was a wonderful guide and took good care of us. All of the pickups, transferred, etc. went according to plan… I would also like to give credit to the drivers and individuals who picked us up at the airport/hotels to make sure we made it to our next destination. Everyone was so helpful and the guides were very knowledgeable. It was so reassuring knowing that someone was...
