"From our very first contact with Gemma we knew we were in safe hands, but could not have imagined what an amazing trip it would be. We travelled from the wonderful mountains in the North to the tropical forest region of the South accompanied by our brilliant guide, Edgar, who attended to our every need and oversaw arrangements impeccably. It was like travelling with an expert companion with knowledge in so many areas."
