Review for Wild Frontiers “Via Egnatia” September, 2023 My wife and I just completed the Wild Frontiers Via Egnatia trip in Greece. We have traveled extensively with many different companies over many years. This was one of our best trips ever. Our rating is 5+. First praise is to our guide Tasos. What a wonderful individual he is. Tasos, a Greek native, has an encyclopedic knowledge of Greece, Greek history, culture and Greek geography. He is patient, caring and a warm, considerate person. We are very happy to have traveled with him and look forward to taking other trips which he is guiding. Our itinerary was awesome and unexpectedly good: the monasteries and churches at Meteora, the architectural ruins, museum and tomb of Philip II, various cave complexes including Dragon’s Cave and Alistrati Cave. We stopped at many ancient churches, monasteries and mosques, and natural wonders, some on our itinerary and many not. Tasos made sure that our experience was as comprehensive as possible. Our accommodations were always comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We usually stayed at local hotels and guesthouses, chosen by Tasos, avoiding touristy chains. Often we were the only non-Greeks. Now a few words about the food: fantastic and nothing less. Everything was local and plentiful, lots of vegetables and high quality meats and pastries. Fortunately, we remained active enough to burn off most of the extra calories. Again, the restaurants were “genuine”, and local, personally chosen by Tasos. I enjoyed our hikes and walks. Some of the hikes were more difficult but all could easily be done by a moderately fit individual. We had a great group. Everyone got along surprisingly well. There were no complainers, whiners or “duds”. By the end of the trip we were “family”. We look forward to traveling together in the future. In summary, we enjoyed a great trip, a great leader and great participants. Thank you Wild Frontiers. Paul Lucky

I travelled with Wild Frontiers three time pre-Covid to Pakistan, India, and Ethiopia. All three were among the best trips I've done. Well organised, interesting and varied itineraries, to fascinating countries

Five Stan’s trip - Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Not well planned, time management very poor, little or no cultural siting until Uzbekistan, long travel days, poor accommodation, ablutions very poor, group had stomach, bowel issues. Tipping effectively mandatory to pay bus drivers, local guides and heaven knows what else. Tour leader good and managed COVID that went through much of the group effectively but didn’t complete the trip. 3 people did not complete the trip - physically unable or too tired to continue. Kyrgyz guide was exceptional and provided a history and knowledge effectively for all the Stan’s. Other local guides a bit lazy.

Amazing and unforgettable trip to the Galapagos

21-Jul-2021

Our trip to the Galapagos was fabulous; we loved it all. The EcoGalaxy was beautiful and the naturalist for our trip was very experienced (and the staff on board were great too). Our favorite activity (of many) was the snorkeling – we were less than 1 foot away from 15-20 sea lions on Espanola Island. They were ready to play and pose for pictures – that was unforgettable! The hikes and beaches on each island were gorgeous, not to mention the kayaks and paddle boards with picture perfect water. Another highlight was the giant tortoises on Santa Cruz – we loved seeing so many in the wild. We ended our trip in Quito with a great guide (Pablo). He handled all time sensitive airport pickups/drop-offs seamlessly and gave an excellent city tour. Quito is a gorgeous city and we loved the chocolate experience and hotel in old town Quito. We also had dinner at Zazu – which we highly recommend for anyone that goes to Quito. Richard was exceptional in planning our trip; he worked hard on every little detail to make sure it was the experience we expected – and it went far beyond what we imagined. We have used Wild Frontiers twice in a row and will continue working with them for future trips
