Beyond our expectations. The service was terrific. In every way we could count on the profesional travel guidance of Vamos. We’ve never had such a stress-free trip. We have been telling all our friends about you! Leen Schoenaerts
“Each day we ended with total satisfaction, of course the hike to Machu Picchu was THE event but also walking on the terraces and through the native potato and quinoa fields in the communities and the visits to the NGO’s with the children really inspired me. Seeing our guide interact joyously with her fellow Peruvians as just a way of life various times moved me to tears.»
“Annelies Hamerlinck was phenomenal. She put together a fantastic trip on a very reasonable budget. I have already reffered two friends to her, and I will absolutely be coming back for future trips.”
“ We were impressed by the reliability of everyone who had a part in making our trip work: the staff and guides at all locations were lovely, and really appeared to care about our welfare and that we had the best experience in their home town/region.”
«We went to Argentina with a group, my first trip ever outside the United States. Vamos Expeditions was awesome. Annelies met us at the airport and from that moment took care to make sure everything went smoothly. From Buenos Aeries to Patagonia she led us on a great adventure. When the inevitable minor inconveniences occurred she was quick to make sure everything was taken care of. The itinerary, from hiking to kayaking and sight seeing, she planned gave everyone options that fit their abilities and wishes. She was not only the group leader but a participant whose enthusiasm and obvious love of the adventure was infectious to the whole gang. The trip was an absolute blast. I would be happy to travel with Vamos Expeditions again and hope to do it soon».
«Annalies and her entire support staff ensure that any trip with Vamos Expeditions will be extraordinary. Annalies goes out of her way to make sure all the small details that can make a trip go more smoothly and be more enjoyable are handled – and she does it with such grace and personal attention. She carefully selects the activities, meals, guides, attractions and accommodations to provide for an immersive experience filled with fun, adventure, relaxation and local culture. I would highly recommend Annalies and Vamos Expeditions to anyone».
