What Our Amazing Guests Have To Say
Barbara McDonald“I had more laughs and fun in 5 short days than I can remember on any other trip. Everything we did was new and even at my age I was not pressured to do more than I felt I could. Never had I dreamed of riding in a dogsled or petting and walking with reindeer! This was a trip I saw advertised and acted on almost immediately. In the days in between considered backing down but am certainly glad I did not. Will certainly not forget the lovely people and great food I had on the trip. Thanks for the great organization Jared.” —Barbara McDonald
jena_frederick “The trip was perfection. If you want to broaden your horizons and go to exotic places all while feeling taken care of and in good hands I recommend Gondwana Tours. I truly enjoyed the mix of luxury, rugged adventure, great food and enough swank to keep my whole family happy at every turn.” —Jena Frederick
jena_frederick “We just got back from Gondwana’s Amazon Rainforest and Machu Picchu Ecotour. This was the experience of a lifetime. From the moment we stepped off the plane in Quito, Ecuador until our guide dropped us off at the airport in Cuzco, Peru everything was taken care of. We just had to focus on the amazing adventure we were having. We feel like we have experienced something very special and unique – going places most tourist do not go. We got an “inside” look at the culture and indigenous people which was extremely meaningful in a way that took me by surprise. Our group was small and our fellow travelers were a delight. The food was extraordinary (even for a vegetarian) and plentiful. I just can’t say enough and I hope I am able to travel with Gondwana again someday. Thank you Jared.” —Becky Roth
