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...
Our Wild Botswana safari was absolutely amazing! I don’t think we could have had a better guide. Francis Kudomo was so knowledgeable about everything from animals to stars to the history of Botswana. He was hospitable, patient, and accommodating. He knew the wildlife like the back of his hand and in a short time we trusted him. He was so thorough in making sure all our bags were with us before each flight, in going over camp rules, letting us know the plans for each day the night before. With four women on our safari he was very patient with frequent loo stops. He never minded. What a great guy!
We had never gone anywhere with a tour before and I don’t think we could have had a better group. We were all like-minded in so many ways and meshed very well. We were probably one of the most talkative...
We love getting little notes from our travelers while they are still on their trip!
Jan and I are having a great time in Turkey. Our guides have all been very professional, as well as friendly; the food has been delicious at all the restaurants they've selected, and the sights have been splendid. I don't want to forget to add that the hotels have all been really special.

Message and trip report for a custom trip to Turkey designed by our Turkey program director Laura Finkelstein.
To get straight to the bottom line, the trip was an overwhelming success. Exceeded even my own expectations -- which were very, very high. All three generations had a wonderful time. This was tied for the best trip we have taken with Wildland -- right up there with Peru/Amazon. We all just loved Turkey, and actually are seriously thinking about returning next year to see more of the country.
Thanks for planning such an amazing family adventure.

What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why?
There were so many highlights, but the gulet was probably the best. It was extremely relaxing and unstructured, and there was something to do for everyone. The crew really pampered us. There were lots of long faces in our group...
