We were blown away by Sue’s in-depth knowledge of everything from endemic species to the history of Shackleton and his men. No question we had went unanswered, and no little detail was missed.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well! Who could have foreseen electric storms (according to the locals in Buenos Aires – the worst in 10 years!) and the civil unrest in Chile.  You couldn’t have looked after us better if you had been on the spot! We had an AWESOME adventure – your advice and suggestions were bang on the nail every time. Each hotel was better than the next and the cruise was FANTASTIC, the scenery throughout the trip was amazing!

John put together a phenomenal itinerary to Colombia that included the Colombian Amazon, a place that we understand to be little visited. What a trip it was – you have made Steppes clients out of us, John.
