"My trip was utterly fantastic!! In fact, I really don't think it could have been any more perfect. The ExpeditionTrips staff was very helpful and understanding and extremely knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. I would book future trips through you as well as recommend your services to others. Even though we never met face to face, I feel I was treated with "professionalism with a personal touch" and believe me, such treatment is certainly a rarity these days."
