“The trip was everything we were looking for. The trek was a little bit challenging at some point but the views are so worth it. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable, he taught us many things about the Inca ruins, the history and the culture. It was a rich cultural experience.”

“I had trained in anticipation for this trek by doing several hikes with roughly the same weight I'd be carrying in Torres del Paine. I also had completed a half marathon in Patagonia so I was acclimated to the elevation. I'm very glad that I had the training before hand. It made the trek more enjoyable and I was able to keep a good pace.”

“Our tour through Bolivia went perfectly. Bamba's customer service team was always attentive to our needs, which eased our nerves quite a bit. And the tour itself was fantastic. A small group, with a very knowledgeable and friendly guides (I forget the names, sadly. Everyone was hospitable and friendly which made our stay very enjoyable. We were lucky to visit during the rain season and experience a giant mirror beneath our feet, which was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!!”
