Sherman's review for another Adios Adventure Travel tour
5 - Excellent
“We enjoyed our trip to Machu Picchu immensely. Our guide, Hubert, was simply outstanding. He was so good that we took another vacation with Adios Travel this past August to the Galapagos Islands, and that trip was also incredible. I can't recommend Adios Travel enough...they are outstanding.”
Peggy's review for another Adios Adventure Travel tour
5 - Excellent
“Being a traveler versus a tourist, I enjoy immersion into the culture and get as close to the real deal as I can. The Adios Adventure Travel pros go above and beyond what you would expect from a regular travel company. Luckily, I booked my trip to Peru through Jacquie. I am a very busy small business owner, I didn't have the time to look up and research, do a cost analysis and so on. I simply told Jacquie at Adios Travel my dates and the country I wanted to visit. Jacquie took it from there and before you knew it I was all set with a full itinerary including stops and locations I never even knew existed.

While in Peru, Jacquie, Vidal and Hubert made my trip personal, intimate, exciting, informative and relaxing all at once. I instantly felt like I was completely immersed in the culture with all the benefits of home, but not having make decisions or plan a thing. That is what I call a vacation!

For example, instead of taking you to the "tourist market" (aka tourist trap) to be hounded to buy a souvenirs made in some far away sweat shop they'll take you to the local weaving site. Here you'll talk with, learn from, watch the artists and if you should choose, buy directly from the very same local artisan. This left me feeling happy and satisfied knowing I was giving back to the community.

What's more, the intimate small groups allow them to be flexible and spontaneous and stopping along the roadside to check out a cool site and grab that picture you may never find anywhere else.

The accommodations were fabulous and authentic with all the amenities you want and need. Having the knowledgeable and friendly local guides put you right in the heart of the destination. This allows you to get away from the daily grind and puts you in another world, which is exactly why you came in the first place.

Using Adios Adventure Travel I was able to enjoy the uniqueness of this beautiful country and catch a breather at the same time. Well done Jacquie, Vidal and Hubert! Gracias, for my much needed wonderful, interesting, adventurous and relaxing Vacation!!”
