One of the very best trips we have ever been on. We were spoiled by having a private guide and doing things at our own speed, addressed to our own interests. Our guide was one of the best we have ever had.

First class from our moment of arrival until departure. It was apparent on the trail that WT was a higher-level experience than any other agency.
