“Clearly a well thought out itinerary to explore the many different regions and ecosystems of Costa Rica. Timings worked very well but all you ever wished for was more time in each location but this would then make it a 3 week trip! No matter how much literature you read before the trip the diversity is amazing and just how much is packed into this small country is incredible; the wildlife, the insects, reptiles and plants exceed all expectations. Each location is so different you just never tire of what you will see next. We went on a bird watching departure, this suited both nature lovers and more serious 'birders' alike. I believe we saw and appreciated so much more due to this type of departure - would recommend it highly.”

“This trip far exceeded my expectations. This hidden gem of a place gave us all some wonderful experiences. The Ethiopian people are strikingly handsome, the Simien mountains are fabulous, the trekking great (if tough and dusty at times), the crowd of trekkers great fun (thanks to our Irish crowd for the singing and card playing) and the trek leaders fantastic. Thinking of Kilimanjaro Forget it, go here!”
