I had booked our Uyuni Salt Flats & Desert Adventure 3D/2N (Uyuni to Atacama) tour via an Australian travel agency, but they had made an error and refused to assist us or take responsibility. This was very difficult for us because we wanted to have a stress-free honeymoon. I contacted Bamba and I asked if we could talk on the phone so they made the improvements to our tour reservation that our travel agent declined to make. The quality of service was exceptional and they generously offered to us a complimentary gift because it was our honeymoon. I can't say enough good things about Bamba.
The company is exceptional. When I had questions, I always got prompt and professional answers. The excursions that Bamba organized were fantastic! Thank you once again for everything!
For true explorers.
To this day, this is the best tour we've ever done together as a couple! The fun activities, great hotels and nice guides worth the money! We were always taken care of and they made sure that we had a good time. This tour is definitely worth taking.
The Bamba Team really made my journey one of the most memorable experiences of my life! Still so nice and supportive! They handled everything and responded to each question within a few minutes. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. Especially if you want to do a lot of activities and travel to a lot of different places without feeling rushed. They've also helped me with specific issues that weren't covered by the tour, as well as answering general questions. Thank you so much for making my journey so enjoyable!
The tour was fantastic; I was able to visit some of Japan's most beautiful locations, and the accommodations were excellent, with convenient access to the city's best attractions. Also, our tour guide was fantastic. I will pick bamba again and recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see Japan while having a good time!!
I only have good words about our trip to Kenya. The entire experience was totally magical and I struggle to say how fantastic it was. We were fortunate enough to have a brilliant vehicle for ourselves, but we had great luck with David for our guide too. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and nice. Thank you for helping to create this fantastic safari experience. I Highly recommend this company.
Bamba Experience has been the best tour guide I've ever had. Every tour has been a thrilling experience. There are so many things to choose from. Bamba has been extremely helpful in providing us with all of the necessary information for our departures and activities! Bamba has made this a simple and enjoyable experience. I'll certainly tell my friends and family about it! Thank you very much, Bamba!!
We organized a trip through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia on the hop-on, hop-off bus. It made the trip so much simpler for us as first-time travelers because we just had to send an email to arrange the bus, which avoided the hassle of looking for the best price and so on! We also had a number of tours included, they were all amazing and saved us the trouble of trying to find the best offers on our own; it also meant we got to see a lot of stuff we wouldn't have seen otherwise.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience that I will strongly suggest and use again!
Our Bamba tour of Vietnam was fantastic. We had a lot of new experiences and all of the help we needed to make this a stress-free vacation. The well-organized accomodation and transportation were excellent. We will certainly use Bamba in the future.
My friends and I booked a bus pass that for two months took us in a very flexible way. Since it was our first journey for a longer time, we thought it was a great way to ensure that we could easily make reservations on transport and avoid language barrier issues. We were not wrong. Bamba answered incredibly quickly and soon afterwards answered your official confirmation by email to book our transportation and all activities included. I was always surprised by the speed with which they answered. The public transportation was high-quality and we had a real experience while remaining comfortable. All of the activities involved have been so fun and cycling tours have been a great way to see the cities and what I didn't think I could book. I cannot thank Bamba Experience sufficiently for making our trip so easy, so that we can enjoy our journey.
Even in the middle of a national festival in Nepal, they were extremely helpful and flexible in helping us find dates and times that worked for us. Good job, Bamba!
I had a fantastic time with Bamba; they were incredibly helpful with any questions I had and even modified some bus trips that weren't suitable for my needs. I believe the prices are a bit higher, but I suppose you pay for the ease of making them organize it and help you. Overall, I thought Bamba was a fantastic company.
Fantastic experience! Without any problems we had a beautiful day. I can certainly recommend bamba!
The transfers were always on time, were always safe, and were always handled professionally. Our lodging was consistently of high quality, in a convenient venue, and managed by courteous and competent staff. We really appreciate how quickly you responded to our emails when we had concerns or wanted anything clarified or updated along the way. Overall, Bamba, a fantastic adventure.
I've traveled several times to different countries around the world and have had a lot of different experiences. On my most recent trip to Central America, I chose BAMBA and their service, advice, and the positive energy from the staff were fantastic! They made me feel as they really understood me and my needs, while also facilitating my travel experience. You can tell they enjoy sharing their travel experiences with you, as they were super communicative and easily accessible every time I needed something. THANK YOU BAMBA for assisting me in having an amazing tour.
My friend and I have used Bamba for the East Coast tour. They were great and they helped us tremendously all the time. We had to do everything in advance by emailing them a day or two when we wanted to reserve transportation and sorted it within one hour. It is without a single problem that we managed to travel the East Coast. I'd recommend them to everybody. Thank you Bamba!
Our Bolivia tour went off without a hitch. The customer service team at Bamba was always attentive to our needs, which helped to calm our nerves of travelling to a new country. Although the facilities were basic during our time in Uyuni, everyone was hospitable and welcoming, making our stay very enjoyable. We were fortunate enough to visit during the rainy season, which resulted in a giant mirror under our feet, which was the cherry on top. Amazing!
Bamba is a trustworthy company. They offer excellent services at an excellent price. We can recommend it!
The customer support and sales staff are both excellent. Email response times are very fast. You have the impression that your trip is being planned by a friend who sincerely cares for your enjoyment. The tasks included are just what you'd do on your own, but with the added benefit of making someone else do the planning for you. I would strongly suggest Bamba.
We had an exciting time in Borneo, a well organized trip and would use Bamba once again.
Our week long Bamba tour was great. All transfers were fine, and the day tours were very fun and interesting. Your client service team was fantastic, and we would like to say thank you for your support to each person of the team. With Bamba, it's probably more costly, but it saves you a lot of time and trouble, so you don’t have to worry about anything.
I had not seen anything like this tourist plans concept before, in my life.
Bamba made our trip in South America an absolute delight and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking to go somewhere else.
We booked a hop on hop off in Malaysia and Singapore. Bamba always made it easy for us, even when we had a problem crossing the border to Singapore, they gave us excellent customer service. All in all, it was a good holiday, including transportation and activities which were extremely fun. Already thinking about our next trip with Bamba!
For my trip to Dubai and Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam), I booked everything with Bamba. Over the course of 7 weeks, the organization was excellent, and they went out of their way to make the trip as stress-free as possible. I was concerned about the time difference because I booked this from the UK to use in Asia, but I had no need to be concerned. They responded almost immediately and organized everything quickly and efficiently. Both of the tours and transportation were of excellent quality, and the customer service was excellent all over. It's difficult to traverse Asia without help because there are so many scam tours and shady bus companies! It's much easier to delegate the difficult tasks to experts.
It was a dream come true for me to be able to celebrate the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Every detail was meticulously organized and arranged by Bamba Experience. The community was mostly on schedule. The guides took us on a wonderful tour of Rio de Janeiro. The sunset ride on the boat was awesome. Thank you to all of the guides and staff.
I can say that Bamba's service made that experience an unforgettable on my first time on a trek! The tour guide has been very friendly throughout the trek and the rest of the team always ensured we were treated well :D Thank you for the experience!
What fantastic service! The communication was fast and accurate, and the app was always up to date and useful because it didn't need the use of the internet! Our trip was made simple and stress-free by the Bamba team.
The money was well spent because it was so easy to get around South America thanks to Bamba. We had no problems with the application that showed our itinerary and the service was prompt and competent. This shows that the employees are able to handle customers quickly and deliver a great service. For those travelers who would prefer a lot of autonomy in choosing where to stay and how long, you should look into the many travel options Bamba offers.
I booked a couple of passes around Asia and Bamba, -at all hours of the day- were extremely efficient and helpful. I enjoyed the trip thoroughly, and the transport to each location and the trips were great. Thank you very much for making my journey unforgettable.
I booked a number of trips to Peru organized by Bamba. The team organized all the various tours excellently. They were all very helpful with all my different questions prior to my arrival and under my stay in Peru. My main journey was a four-day Inca Trail walk. The guide was very good at it. He knew the history of Peru and, in particular, the Inca trail. And also, his English was excellent. Thank you for such an amazing experience!
My tour planned by bamba was incredible! The vacation was relaxing because everything was all planned and stress-free. There is no need to book another hotel or to find the next bus. They have everything taken care of! It is definitely worth the money.
My wife and I went to Mexico with Bamba, and the hotels and transportation were impeccable. Of course, each one of them had been carefully planned. I can't think of anyone better to plan your trip.
Bamba was able to change our itinerary because of my sickness. They took care of us and treated our trip like it was about us, so we felt included in everything they did. Our guide was quite informative and helpful. It's highly recommended!
We travelled with Bamba from Mexico City to Cancun and it was an awesome trip. We had a great time and the services offered. The customer service team responded very well to our questions and was patient when we required some help.
In Bolivia and Peru with Bamba, I had the time of my life; everything went off without a hitch and was flawless!!
I can't wait to use bamba again as my travel agent and travel the world!
In July, my friend and I traveled to Thailand with Bamba Experience and had an amazing time!! Of course, you might do everything on your own, but it made it so much easier for us, helping us to relax and enjoy our journey. It's been absolutely fantastic! I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who made reservations for us during our 5-week trip with Bamba. I am confident that I will recommend your firm to others in the future.
The guides were fantastic! The team was extremely responsive and supportive in organizing our day's activities and answering any questions or concerns we had.
I completed the RIce Field Ways in Southeast Asia, and it was incredible! I debated whether to travel with Bamba or on my own, but I chose to take a gamble, and I'm glad I did!! It turned out to be a great decision. I knew traveling in Southeast Asia would be difficult, particularly given the language barrier, but Bamba made it a breeze. Thank you!
Masai Mara was amazing! All was well organized. We got a personal driver for the first two days. He cared for us well. It was fantastic to sleep in Nakuru! We had a private (cooked) chef and a cozy house! Amazing experience overall.
Traveling to the most amazing place in the world with Bamba experience has been one of my best experiences. New Zealand has fantastic views and nature all around. It's incredible to travel on the roads, because all views are enabled. Queenstown is a perfect city and on top of the mountain you can see panoramic views.
The trip was well-organized and provided me with the freedom I wanted. The accommodations were excellent, and the transfers were prompt. A once-in-a-lifetime journey.
It was an incredible journey that I would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure. The team couldn't have been more accommodating, even picking you up from your hotel, and our young guide made driving the buggies a memorable experience. I'm happy he knew how to get there. I assumed it would only be a track to go around, but you ride a considerable distance over sand, grit, and paths. This trip is not for you if you are afraid of getting dirty. However, if you like a little pace and excitement, you will enjoy it!!!
Last year, my wife and I took a bus pass from Costa Rica to Mexico, and it was fantastic! The customer service team left a lasting impression on us. They were always willing to assist and patiently answered all of our questions and requests. Highly recommended.
To top things off, it was a wonderful experience.
An incredible amazon jungle lodge and great staff who took us to our rooms as soon as we stepped off the boat and explained everything we wanted to know about our stay. After unpacking and eating lunch, we took a brisk walk through the jungle directly behind the Lodge with an experienced English-speaking guide, where we saw many birds, bugs, and reptiles. This was a very fun-filled and energetic stay, between the boat trips and jungle walks each day. The guides and the bamba staff were awesome. Thank you!
My family and I just finished a hop on hop off bus pass through Central America, and it was fantastic!! They were always prompt in responding and eager to assist us! Thank you to the entire Bamba team for making this trip so special!!
We are very happy with the job the staff did, because they responded promptly when we called or emailed them. So thank you for making our experience so special.
Bamba was amazing, a simple email to let them know when we want to do our activities or tours, and they would answer with times and locations straight away. We had difficulty in canceling one of our journey halfway through a typhoon, but Bamba quickly sorted our reimbursement.
One of the best companies I've ever met, I'd recommend it to everyone, warm, friendly and helpful!
Last year, my sister and I took a tour from Guatemala City to Cancun that was flawlessly coordinated! The Bamba Team was extremely helpful and promptly responded to all of our questions or concerns. Knowing that you had the help of a business like Bamba made a big difference while traveling in a foreign country. This comes at a bit higher cost, but it is well worth it.
I planned a wonderful trip to Brazil with the help of bamba. They arranged the necessary transfers as per itinerary. I would frequently receive answers to my emails in less than an hour. I very much enjoyed the program.
They are so helpful and the answers are so fast. We'll definitely book our next journey with Bamba.
These travel passes in Asia come highly recommended...
In October, we had a fantastic experience on the four-day Inca Trail. The carriers are superhuman, the cook is unbelievable. Three course lunches and four course dinners, we're never hungry. We didn't expect such delicious food! The tour of Machu Picchu was great, our guide had excellent facts. We were carefully taken from start to finish and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bamba to anyone else in the future.
We're writing to share our appreciation for a great trip to Central America. We'd never been there before and had no idea what to expect. We had a wonderful time on our vacation, which was made even better by the smooth transfer arrangements and high-quality accommodations you included in our itinerary.
The transfers were always on time, were always discreet, and were always done in a professional manner. Our lodging was always of high quality, in a convenient venue, and managed by friendly and skilled staff. The Tortuguero tour was especially memorable. Thank you so much, bamba!
It was an outstanding tour. Our guide Justin has been very expert, interesting and fun. For all on the tour, he made a great task to balance preferences. This trip was a marvelous experience for my family.
I've been traveling through Asia for the last seven months, starting in November and ending in January. Every single member of the Bamba team has been amazing from the start. They have been generous and insightful throughout the process. I have thoroughly enjoyed my travels, thanks to the BAMBA crew. I absolutely recommend them to anyone to travel elsewhere, and can promise that I will use them again in the future.
There were so many things to do and see on our Bamba tour that we spent a month and a half on the road to discover and experience the culture of the locals. We really enjoyed it!
The Bamba team was always willing to assist. We had no big transportation problems, and any questions we had were promptly answered. We noticed that the Bamba pass provided us with enough flexibility.
It was an interactive and pleasant experience in Mexico. Learned a bit about cuisine culture and history.
The trip was everything I had hoped for and more. It was, in reality, my very first trekking experience. My tour guide, Saroj, is a native Nepali who patiently guided me through the beautiful scenery of the Nepali Himalayas. Thank you so much, Bamba!
The trip was fantastic, and I had nothing but positive experiences and a great time.
Good way to travel, you got a lot of freedom, but also some help if needed. Helpful and customer service.
My friends and I booked a travel pass in Peru and it was awesome. The customer service was excellent and they have always been there to help during our journey. The team responded to our requests by very fast. You don’t find this type of support everywhere and we felt much better knowing they were only an email away. Thanks all for an unforgettable experience with Bamba!
We've had an amazing time. Very well organized, well-informed guide. Apartments far better than I anticipated. Loved all about our journey! Well done Bamba!
When I emailed Bamba, they were always very polite and supportive, and nothing was ever an issue. All was made very clear and straightforward.
We reserved a spot on the Lares Trek through Bamba. The food was great on our trek, and we learned a lot of traditional Peruvian dishes. It was fantastic! We learned a lot about Inka tradition and history during our trek. As a result, the Trek was not only incredible because of the breathtaking scenery, but it was also fascinating. I have enjoyed meeting locals, seeing their homes, and learning about their culture. Overall, it was an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone.
I traveled with my boyfriend to Thailand and booked in advance with Bamba. All was easy and smooth to book. We wanted to catch the ferry or bus and they answered us nearly instantly by fast email. At a time, Bamba was offered to pick us up although our hotel was not in the pick-up area. Their email explained that they want to offer the best customer service. I fully agree with that. :)
This trip was totally incredible! Bamba ensured that all was organized very well. From the day before we went to our briefing, until when we took the train back from Machu Picchu
Definitely recommended! They have some great tours that are very attractive to tourists. It is a very good service
I traveled in December with Bamba Experience and I have only good things to say. They always helped me to book all my busses, ferries, flights and hostels. All their activities were perfect for me!! I've recommended Bamba and I'll continue recommending it because it was the best trip in my life! Thank you Bamba! Thank you!
This is a fantastic way to see Southeast Asia.
It was totally fantastic! The guide was fantastic and the food amazing :) I recommend this experience and company highly!!!
I was terrified at the thought of traveling alone but bamba made my travels easy and stress-free, allowing me to be more flexible with the number of days I stayed in a location because they were just an email away to book my bus and/or excursion.
They promptly responded to my emails and provided me with all of the details I needed for that stage of my journey. The excursions themselves were fantastic, and you felt as though you had seen all of the major sights without having to worry about planning it yourself. I would strongly advise you to include bamba in your travel plans. People who are warm and polite who clearly put customer service first with all they do.
When I contacted them, they were extremely responsive and professional, as well as nice! Really, I don't have anything negative to say.
Victor was such a nice tour guide! For a small group or solo traveler I highly recommend bamba. At every place we had a good amount of time to enjoy. Excellent experience!
We had a wonderful experience with Bamba climbing the mountains in Mount Bromo, Indonesia! Certainly one of the greatest memories and photos of our holidays, thanks to our guide who has always led us to the best place to see it and to the crew for always being there helping us.
I traveled to the safari tour in Masai Mara, Kenya, in which I met the tribe and spent two days in a Masai village. This was one of the most incredible moments of my life. I was grateful for the efficient tour planning and excellent communication with the team. It's nice when a travel agent is quick to respond when you are trying to put together a vacation across the globe. These guys are reliable and definitely would recommend them. My expectations were more than exceeded by the safari and bamba.
Friendly, supportive staff who went out of their way to assist me on my first trip to Peru and Colombia. They arranged transportation for me that I would not have been able to arrange on my own. Totally recommended! Thank you very much!
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was an incredible adventure. The food was some of the best we'd had in Peru and the trip was well-organized by Bamba Experience.
Thanks for my trip to see the Masai Mara. The driver was exceptionally patient and took his time to make sure we saw the wildlife. I enjoyed it a lot.
Fantastic getaway with bamba! Many animals and breathtaking flora and fauna await you.
We really liked the idea of self-guided tours, where you don't have to ride in a group for the whole trip but only meet up with other travelers for unique activities along the way. It's such a relief to have a skilled tour operator like Bamba handle all of our bookings and provide us with a live App solution with daily events, transfers, hotel reservations, and tickets such as air fares. So, even though you are not physically present with the Bamba people, you have the feeling that they are with you every step of the way! Even when we had questions during the tour, Bamba provided us with prompt answers!
My family and I planned a trip to see the Komodo dragons, and it went off without a hitch! A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The bamba team was helpful even before starting the trip. An excellent customer support! The tour was fantastic in and of itself. True, it was not a luxurious journey, but we found it to be perfectly satisfactory. Thank you to the whole bamba team for a fantastic time!
I went on two tours with Bamba. A seven-day trip to Nepal followed by a four-day trip to Bhutan. Both were fantastic. My tour guides were knowledgeable, versatile, and approachable. Both trips were fantastic value for money.
The pass takes you on a tour of each country's key tourist routes, stopping at all of the major attractions. From there, you can travel to various locations and simply return when you want to resume your journey. I also chose the flexi version, which allowed me to change my travel times and dates as much as I liked, subject to availability, which was ideal for a backpacker. The whole team is incredible and extremely supportive, making planning a trip a breeze. They also provide you with an app that details your itinerary and locations in a clear way.
My husband and I made a trip to Central America and Bamba organized all tours and transport for us. Bamba's team has been very helpful and patient since the beginning, working with us to customize the best journey for our tastes and interests. We discussed several times by email and telephone until our schedule and activities were 100% as we wanted. All went according to plan during the trip. There were, of course, some delays, but nothing significant. I believe that it was only a matter of patience.
Bamba was the best option for me as a first-time backpacker. They can help you, and try to adjust your itinerary to your wishes, whenever possible, plus some great experiences. With the friendly, fast and helpful staff at Bamba I was very happy, so I'd definitely recommend that!!
Its self-guided tour is especially useful for travelers like me who want some freedom and flexibility but don't have the time to plan everything ahead of time. There may have been a few minor issues, such as the hotels being unable to locate the reservation from the Bamba experience, but these issues were quickly resolved, which I appreciated. Nothing is ideal or without flaws. The most important thing is that I can ask Bamba for assistance anytime I need it, and they always come up with solutions. As a result, I am grateful to them and pleased by their professionalism and support. Congratulations on a job well done, and thank you for making my trip so memorable
I first used Bamba Experience in 2018 to book my South American hop on hop off bus passes, and I wanted to use them again this year through Asia because they were really nice and professional. I felt completely at ease and confident using them, especially because I was traveling alone. They always respond quickly to any questions you might have, are extremely polite, and help you relax. I enjoy the freedom and versatility it provides.
The journey was great, even the long journey by coach was great. Very comfortable bus with interesting stops and conversations on the way. Lake Titicaca has been a memorable experience, a real highlight of the journey which gave a fantastic overview of the friendly people of the lake and their simple lifestyles.
Our trip was great. Fantastic and helpful staff that quickly answered. Every time we traveled by bus, we did not have any concerns. There were also very nice day trips included. Would travel again with bamba definitely!
It was a great experience for my brother and I that just finished the Inca Trail with Bamba. Our guide was highly skilled and enjoyed the trip. For lunch and dinner every day, we had incredible three course meals. They were very warm and very convenient and we rented sleeping bags too. This trip with Bamba Experience is strongly recommended.
We booked a 5-day tour of Mexico City, and everything went smoothly. They put us up in a fantastic hotel that was close to all of the meeting locations. I'd certainly use them for potential tours.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Bamba. They will help you throughout your trip. That saved us a lot of time because of the two borders we had to go through it. We missed an experience on our own tour because of the confusion, but Bamba was there to offer another one. I loved our pass. Since there is no waiting involved, I think it's totally worth it. The staff and tour operators were all helpful. It will be such a pleasure to travel with you again in the future, bamba!
My friends and I had a fantastic time in Colombia travelling with Bamba. All was well-organized, and customer service was prompt and friendly. The activities provided by Bamba were excellent, the guides were incredibly helpful, and spending time with them was a lot of fun. I would recommend without any doubt traveling with Bamba; it made our journey much smoother!
The service was outstanding, with excellent punctuality, professionalism, and attention to detail. The driver who was assigned to us was always polite and pleasant. Highly recommended.
The trail itself in Peru was breathtaking and well worth the effort! The organization by Bamba was flawless, and the food was delicious!
We booked two hop on hop off passes from Bamba. We wanted to be versatile, but also have a fixed itinerary for our Southeast Asia trip. We've been traveling with Bamba for a total of 4 months. We sent them a message 48 hours ahead of time, and they promptly booked everything for us. We've always had good things to say about Bamba. They are courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, supportive, respectful, fast, and understanding... and they are always available to you. They make every effort to please their customers. We were and continue to be fully fulfilled and content. We saw a lot of places and did a lot of stuff with Bamba that we would not have seen or done otherwise. We did have to change our plans on occasion, but it was never a concern. Thank you so much!
We had a blast on our Guatemala bus pass! The staff was excellent, particularly because they responded very fast. Bamba was always willing to help when we needed it. Thank you for all of your assistance during our travels.
All was very smooth! Before leaving for Costa Rica I had a digital travel schedule and it provided me with all the transfer details (times and dates). I received good service and quick response from the support team when I had any questions or wanted to change something. When I said that a hostel did not serve breakfast, even if it was included, I even got money back. Everything and everywhere were on time. It's very easy to travel with bamba! I had nothing to worry about, I just could focus on enjoying my holiday.
We traveled with Bamba for over two months, from Vietnam to Cambodia to Thailand, and it has been an incredible experience!! The team was always willing to help in any situation, and we had fantastic opportunities to travel long distances in very comfortable conditions.
Well worth that money. We had a very nice journey with bamba! Very well organized and much fun! I have already recommended this company to my friends.
They can organise all kinds of excursions in the world. It comes highly recommended.
Excellent customer support! They have one-of-a-kind travel experiences all over the world.
Travel professionals!!! They are more interested in selling experiences than in selling locations. That's awesome, because I believe that's the whole point of travel. I just noticed that they have a new website, and it's fantastic! It's definitely worth a look!!
We did the Golden Triangle tour for eight days and it was all perfect. We loved our guide, who during the entire trip was extremely friendly. This is a truly beautiful country and Bamba has perfectly organized everything.
We traveled through Southeast Asia, visiting Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and had an incredible time! Even with several of our silly questions, the ""Happiness Team"" was extremely helpful and polite during our entire journey. They responded quickly to our emails, putting us at ease and taking the stress out of our journey.
Highly punctual, serious, and dependable. They had us really well prepared, and the tour we took with them was fantastic. And the driver assigned to us (ask for Mario) could not have been a better guide and human.
A nice place to check if you want to go on a vacation.
Although our trip was a short one, we had a chance to see and do all we wanted, plus more with Bamba!! I couldn't have asked for an experience that was better and fulfilling. We left and saw the seventh marvel of the world while making friends and must-see sites. Thank you very much Bamba experience! Thank you so much!
This vacation was even better than I expected; we will book again with bamba for some great new creative ideas to come back with next time.
We booked our trip to travel with Bamba through Brazil, Uruguay and part of Argentina. They were always very helpful via email and did their best to accommodate our wishes. When something did go wrong, they went out of their way to sort alternatives for us. We had a flexi ticket but also booked excursions with them. We were really happy with the service and support.
Great journey. Multiple "Secret Roads" and not just crowded areas. Amazing activities.
We booked our trek with bamba. All pre-departure arrangements were well and timely. Our Guide was really good and knowledgeable and made sure we all had a great time. The porter and cook team were incredible. The trip was fantastic overall. Only breakfast stops on the first day were to be chosen - expensive and little left. It was great otherwise.
My boyfriend and I had an incredible time in South Asia! We got outstanding service from the bamba team who was extremely helpful and promptly responded to our emails. Knowing that Bamba was just an email away made us feel comfortable. They also took top-of-the-line buses which made us feel really safe during our transfers. Also, the included day tours were incredible and fun!! If you need a little assistance with your travels, do not hesitate to contact Bamba!
Our safari with bamba was awesome. We saw a lot more animals than we expected. The jeep was a bit old, but besides that, everything was amazing and the guide was a great driver as well.
The perfect way to plan your journey to Latin America and Mexico. Highly recommended, excellent service!! I recommend that you check the hop on hop off trips.
Overall, our experience with Bamba was fantastic. It made the first month of our nine-month journey a lot easier. They usually responded to emails the same day and booked us on our buses and tours within a few days; we never had a problem finding a seat on any of the buses! Although it is possible to save money on buses and activities while traveling in Central America, it was convenient to have Bamba already booked for our first trip and not knowing what to expect.
Before and during our trips to Peru and Bolivia, Bamba Experience offered excellent support.
We always received a response within hours, regardless of the time or day. They were very helpful in assisting us with trips and bus routes so that we could complete our vacation on time.
I recently completed a bus pass from Hanoi to Bangkok (Rice Field Ways) and had an amazing time! The Bamba team was always there for me. I would email them whenever I needed anything, and they would respond almost immediately! The customer service is excellent. To make reservations, I would simply send them an email, and my bus or day tour reservation would be completed within a few hours. It really made traveling so much easier!
Absolutely fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure. the team couldn't do more for you to be helpful even picking you up from your hotel and our young guide made it a memorable time driving the buggies. i'm glad he knew the way. i was thinking it would be only a track to go around but you really travel a good distance over sand, grit and roads. if you are precious about getting grubby, this trip is not for you. but if you like a bit of speed and fun then you will love it!!!
On our trip around Asia, Bamba was fantastic, always helpful and easy to respond to emails! Each trip to our next destination went off without a hitch; sometimes, a bus would be full, but Bamba still had a backup plan, so it was never a major issue. The tours were fantastic, well-organized, and guided by outstanding tour guides. If you're a first-time traveler, Bamba is a fantastic company to work with; they take all of the stress out of your trip and know exactly what to do in each location.
Execeptional and well worth the money.
Although this was only a short trip, it was still remarkable and Bamba had a wide variety of diverse excursions available. I was convinced that I have really experienced Costa Rica's lifestyle and got a good idea of their culture.
The bamba team put together a great tip with fantastic lodging and tours. All went smoothly and on schedule. Due to an airline problem, I lost my luggage on the way. In retrieving my luggage, the Bamba team was also extremely helpful. Customer service of the highest quality. Thank you so much for everything; I'll be booking another tour with you soon.
Bamba has booked all of our accommodations and tours in Argentina. We had a great time in the Iguazu Falls, Salta and Mendoza for about three days in each place. The efficiency of Bamba for day trips and pick-ups was impressive for us. I would recommend Bamba because of their good organization in the trips.
I took a trip to Southeast Asia from Singapore to Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam and used the package hop off tour. Bamba was extremely responsive and customer service during the almost 40 days of this trip, and I'd recommend this tour to anybody. The included mini tours were also great, giving a good insight into the various cultures. A great all-round experience, thanks to Bamba.
5* Our 8-week trip was incredible thanks to the team's assistance and encouragement, and we will certainly use them again.
What a lifelong experience. We have seen four sea turtles laying eggs during our week and releasing over a thousand hatchlings. I will never forget a life-enhancing experience. Each and all transfers went smoothly and were on time. Thank you very much Bamba.
Great experience in Italy! All the people in bamba who have helped us were understanding and friendly.
Our trip to Israel and Jordan was perfect, we didn't have to make the booking tours or decide which company was reliable etc. Everything has been booked and organized for us, so that the route sent in advance gave you a comprehensive overview of what to expect and what costs are not covered. The gladness team was very helpful and always answered any questions that we had. All the tour guides, especially those involved in crossing the border, have been experienced, making sure that you are fully aware of the process to avoid confusion. I'd recommend this fantastic trip with bamba to anyone.
It was a fantastic safari! The guide was very nice and showed us incredible places and we saw lots of animals. We also enjoyed seeing and meeting all local people at the Masai Village. If you want a mix of wildlife and local people, you have to do this tour with Bamba!
We had a great holiday in South Africa, visiting the extreme poles of Cape Point in the south and Lisbon Falls in the north. Thank you for your time, Bamba Experience.
You get amazing professional advice and support from Bamba, which is invaluable.
Our tour guide was awesome, and we had a fantastic time. I will recommend Bamba to anyone planning a trip to Machu Picchu.
Everything went fine and according to plan on our trip. I would like to thank the customer service team who answered all of our questions on our trip as well. There is nothing to worry about when Bamba takes you on a trip because everything is planned ahead of time. This kind of itinerary should be given to everyone who is going on a trip. I would recommend Bamba to any traveler who requires assistance in planning their journey.
I'd been wanting to a long time, and this tour allowed me to do so! We had a variety of encounters ranging from sightseeing in Mexico City to assisting in the construction of alters in the countryside to the actual festivities on the day. We also got to go to the Island of the Dolls, where we had a fantastic time floating through the canals and enjoying typical local cuisine. Milton, our tour guide, was fantastic and extremely informative, explaining everything about the festivities and answering any questions we had. If anyone is interested in learning more about this custom, I believe this is the tour for them!
First and foremost, it appears that the experiences alone cover the cost of the pass, particularly when you know the company is legitimate and you will have a good time. When you are living 12 hours ahead of yourself, the pass eliminates the hassle of trying to locate a travel agent with a decent price and service for your trip, as well as a free seat.
I can't say enough about how amazing this trip was! Not only did they meet our expectations, they also exceeded them. Your great product, combined with your excellent customer service, made my trip to Kruger perfect. The tent accommodations were comfortable. The guides and the chef were fantastic and his food was five stars.
We really appreciated how quickly you responded to our emails when we had questions or wanted anything clarified or updated along the way. Overall, Bamba, it was a fantastic experience.
We enjoyed a complete IndoChina Hop On Hop Off pass. I'm not sure how much we paid for it, but it was well worth it after we completed our final journey! The pass included a 44-day itinerary that took passengers through Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia before returning to Bangkok. It's simple to set up, and all you have to do is send an email two days ahead of time to confirm a bus trip or operation. To satisfy the customer's needs, Bamba responds quickly and with outstanding customer service. My wife and I would strongly suggest this pass.
The hike is tough, average to good fitness is necessary, but it certainly worth the amazing views and sense of performance. Hospitality has also been good. The only small thing... it's a little expensive, but surely you don't have to worry about anything. Advisory – You will have to recover from the trek a few days later. Would recommend and use Bamba again. We were the only 2 people in the tour, so it was a very good experience.
We just returned from a three-month trip across Southeast Asia with Bamba, where we booked 2 travel passes. We couldn't have had a better experience; the customer service is outstanding, and the team quickly responded to any questions we had.
For passionate tourists.
What more could you ask for than an amazing experience, wonderful employees, delectable food and wine, and excellent lodging?
I will gladly have them to arrange my next trip :)
I booked two trips to South Africa. One for Cape Town, the Garden Path, and Addo, and the other for Kruger National Park. Both were coordinated by Bamba Experience. We had a great holiday in South Africa, visiting the extreme poles of Cape Point in the south and Lisbon Falls in the north. Thank you for your time, Bamba Experience.
We used Bamba for our 8 months trip to South America and found the team fast and informative.
They always seemed to be available to help and were happy to accommodate some out-of-the-box requests. We're excited to use Bamba on our next trip. Thank you very much!
Honestly I was pretty nervous about this tour, how it would work because I don't speak any Spanish. Yet the Bamba team calmed my anxiety early and responded to my correspondence with total support and rapidity. The tour has a fantastic itinerary and I feel that I had a good overview of Mexico and Panama. Everything was wonderful. A happy time to reflect on the fantastic journey that I had made. Bamba Team thank you.
The happiness team provides excellent support! My trip to Peru went off without a hitch.
Twice now, I've used the Bamba Experience for South America travel and I'll use it again. They have an excellent system of communication and respond promptly. They were reliable, safe and comfortable for tour operators and bus companies. I travel through different countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Argentina and I strongly suggest that everyone who wants to travel independently. Cheers, bamba!
We're extremely happy with the excellent support they offer from start to finish. They have a 'Tailor made' choice where you can customize your trip to meet your specific needs. The staff is extremely attentive, and they are always willing to assist you and answer your many questions while visiting a new location. It is an amazing experience that I highly recommend to anyone interested in traveling across Latin and South America.
The customer service team at Bamba was very friendly and nice. All my questions were answered rapidly. We have always been asked and prepared with a lot of time. It was very easy for us. I'd just stay a week longer if I did one thing otherwise. The experiences were incredible! I’d book more tours with bamba. They're great! They're awesome!
Very good service and lovely people, always quick and accommodating when we required advice and booked the transportation we requested, even if it was only a few hours prior to the departure of the bus/boat. If you are traveling and want some extra transport help and suggestions for fun activities, you should strongly contact them!
