We have traveled with Wildland 3 times before and have loved the trips. We believe you all do South America better than anyone! We were incredibly grateful for all of Gretchen's help in planning this trip and her patience in helping with the changes and questions along the way. We were especially grateful and impressed with how Gretchen and others helped us when our daughter missed her connection. The Delta agents kept telling her not to go to Santiago because of the strike but she left anyway and we kept our fingers crossed that it would work. Thanks to all of you, she made it...

Chris in Patagonia Camp was good and entertaining. Ismail, Frederico in Calafate were great. Andres in El Chalten was especially good.

This family of four, along with their friend, returned a week ago from Peru on Our Sacred Lands of the Incas adventure. They had a fabulous time and below are some of their comments from their trip."Gretchen,Our trip to Peru was one for the record books!  Probably some of the best scenery since I traveled to the South Island of New Zealand.  Didn't hurt that the weather was sunny and gorgeous every day.  All of the tour operators, restaurants, drivers and hotels were perfect.  I have a new favorite drink, the Pisco Sour.  Really loved the Monasterio and the Inkaterra in Machu Picchu.  The buffet lunch at Machu Picchu was spectacular. I will definitely consider using your travel company again and will refer you to any friends for their travel needs.

A Great Trip We Will Cherish for a Lifetime!

A Great Trip We Will Cherish for a Lifetime!
 Daryl and his grandson just returned from a customized Sacred Lands of the Incas adventure where they not only visited Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, they added on time doing a fly-over of the Nazca lines and sand boarding on the high dunes surrounding Ica, in the wine country of Peru. "Our trip was outstanding in all respects, starting with the various guides and including the accommodations. Machu Picchu was of course the highlight. I came away both amazed by what I witnessed and convinced they had backhoes and frontend loaders in the 1500’s. I just can’t imagine they could do it any other way. The Nazca lines were impressive although a disappointment for my grandson, as he is vision impaired and was unable to see them.........I had been concerned about that from the beginning.
