What our clients are saying about cruising around South America

“Inspiring trip to the Galapagos”
Michael - NV, United States Sep 2018
It was a fun, inspiring trip. Actually 1 day in a hotel on the islands and 3 days on a boat. The food was very good. The CEOs were amazing.

“Perfect adventure”
Anthony - QLD, Australia Jul 2018

The Daphne was a great boat with excellent crew who looked after us very well. Our guide Jose was very passionate, entertaining (especially reinacting the mating ritual of the Blue Footed Boobie bird) and approachable.

Leanne & Geoff - WA, Australia Feb 2018
Fantastic trip, accommodation was really good - small family operated hotel so got a real feel of staying local instead of big city hotel. The boat Daphne was excellent, best decision to go for a small number tour, other travel guests were great, easy going, and well matched age bracket. Food on board was beautiful if anything there was way too much. Cabin size yes they are small and a bit cosy but you are only in there to sleep. Boat was spotlessly clean, crew brilliant, helpful, funny, take pride more
