We just returned from a fabulous trip to Peru and Brazil. We had a custom tour organized by Southern Crossings who made all the hotel and travel arrangements. We saw so many highlights in 2 and a half weeks! Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Nazca lines and Ballestas Islands in Peru, and Iguazu Falls and Rio in Brazil. We had guides meet us at every airport, bus station, train station that made it easy and tours of the sites. Everyone was reliable, friendly, flexible and spoke English. Machu Picchu was amazing as was Iguazu Falls. Definitely bring cameras and walking shoes. We shopped around for tour companies and Southern Crossings was less expensive than others. It was well worth it!
Fabulous service from start to finish. "Attention to detail" is the word we would use to describe the staff at Southern Crossings South America. They were paying attention at every step to ensure that we were safe and having fun. There are always glitches in any extended multi-faceted journey, and they were right there to solve the very few problems that cropped up during our nearly month-long travels in Peru and Ecuador. We will definitely try to use them again, and highly recommend that you consider them. What a great staff!
In a sentence, Southern Crossings has just provided my wife of 46 years and I the best vacation we have ever had--ever! There was not a single hiccup. The itinerary that we worked up with Southern Crossings went EXACTLY as planned. If we were to meet with a guide at 8:00 a.m., that guide showed up at exactly that time. If we were supposed to take a tour of a jungle animal rescue center, then that is exactly what we did. If we were supposed to visit an indigenous village, then that is exactly what we did. The Galapagos Islands were beautiful. The cruise ship we were on was absolutely perfect. The food at every stop, in the boat, and at the jungle bungalow was phenomenal. The staff, the folks in charge, the naturalists, the guides were absolutely top notch. Every flight arrangement was perfect. Nothing could have been improved. No trip could have been better. Thank you so very much.
Southern Crossings put together the Perfect Vacation of a Lifetime! No other excursion company came close to providing the level of customer service like Southern Crossings. All of our questions, concerns, and requests were handled quickly and satisfactorily. We gave them our wish list activities, and they produced a custom dream tour. Every detail was planned out. Once inside the Country, we didn't have to worry about anything, including transportation or transfers, which to us is the most stressful part of any vacation! Whether it was at the airport or at our hotel, a Southern Crossings representative was waiting for us, ready to take us to our next adventure. All of the guides were knowledgeable, attentive, helpful, and spoke really good English; just overall awesome. We learned so much about the history and culture of each city we visited; we couldn't imagine doing it without them! The hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was the adventure of our dreams. The guides and porters were all amazing. And the food prepared for us on the trail was simply the best dining experience we’ve ever had. We dined better on the trail than we do at home! I am not joking. The things we did and the sites we saw were incredible and we will remember for the rest of our lives. We definitely will call on them again for our next adventure! We highly recommend Southern Crossings for your adventure. Time is precious, don't waste it with anyone else!
Southern Crossings was amazing in planning our week-long visit to Peru. We were able to experience the highlights, and we had a fabulous time! The customer communication and support were exceptional, our guides were amazing, and we loved every minute of our vacation. Machu Picchu was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to travel to South America. Thanks again for arranging such a wonderful trip for us! We hope to visit South America with your company again soon!
I'm at the airport now getting ready for a long trip home, as I wait, I want to say thank you to the members of the SC staff, all have been attentive, helpful and polite in a Real kind of way. Peru is an amazing place and with the service of your company, I felt safe and enjoyed the journey even more. When the time comes for another expedition like this one, I will keep Southern Crossings in mind, once again thank you.
At the outset, we would like to thank Southern Crossings for putting together a great itinerary. All the guides were good, and we enjoyed the plan. Our best guide award goes to our guide in Machu Picchu, our experience at Machu Picchu was a memorable one and it was even more memorable and thrilling with the hike to Huayna Picchu. Please convey our thanks to all the guides, the drivers and your coordinating staff members for making our trip a successful one.
Will definitely recommend you to others. Excellent service in all areas- transfer, guides- all at reasonable cost.
I've done 2 Inca Trails with them five years apart and the quality was top notch both times. The quality of the guides is superb, very knowledgeable, very patient and pleasing. Accommodations in Cuzco or near the trailhead have always been clean and quaint and excellent quality. Porters and guide and trekkers become a family after the first meal together, and the guide makes that happen. Celebrated my 50th birthday and they even made as surprise cake at 10,000ft+ plus! Low key, no hassle, great quality. Recommend the Inca Trail experiences "con los ojos cerrados". Keep up the great work Team Southern Crossings. Going to do the Salcantay with you guys soon.
Just terrific. I look forward to traveling with Southern Crossings again and would suggest your organization to others. Thanks a lot!
What an adventure! So well organized and executed. The guides were exceptional; incredibly knowledgeable, companionable and flexible, willing to adjust the agenda if needed. I look forward to traveling with Southern Crossings again and would suggest your organization to others. Great Job Guys!
My recent trip to Peru was my first time traveling abroad, and it could not have been better. Southern Crossings was competent, friendly, and well-organized; the accommodation was better than expected; and the itinerary really packed in a lot. I can’t wait for my next trip!
Great trip, great company, great time had by all. From the rainforest to the beaches of Rio. The diversity and contrast are very enlightening. Never a dull moment, your unbounded enthusiasm and cheerful demeanor made for a truly remarkable holiday.
I went on the “Ultimate Inca Trails” trip with Southern Crossings. I still look back on that trek as being one of the most beautiful and inspiring experiences of my life. I had never been so connected to nature before; the scenery was incredible and the pace was challenging, but not overwhelming. One night as we were setting up camp, a meteor flashed across the sky, lighting up the entire valley. We bathed in natural hot springs and visited ruins that were virtually unknown to the regular tourist trail. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before! I will always look back on that trip as being one of the most inspiring experiences of my life.
We had a great time. Puno (& pizza), Lake Titicaca, and the islands (including reeds) were amazing. We were so impressed with the local people, who live happily and contentedly with so little. Overall a great and memorable trip.
We had a great trip and hope all is well with each of you. Thanks again for your help in planning an incredible trip to Peru that we will never forget! We enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you while on our vacation. Take care!
