Easter’s Island’s distinctive ancient rock statues – called Moai – rise from the earth to salute time immemorial as you stroll among their long shadows on the slopes of an extinct volcano.

Here at Rano Rara, 397 of the imposing statues stand or lay where they fell in timeless testament to the ancient civilization that created them. You are free to explore this maze of monolithic stone on your hike up the slope towards the stunning crater lake at the volcano’s peak, and take a moment to ponder this time-locked land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Elsewhere on the island, visit the ceremonial village of Orongo – birthplace of the birdman competition; view the ancient paintings that adorn the walls of Ana Kai Tangata cave; and dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean at beautiful Anakena beach. You’ll also experience mainland Santiago, where you’ll explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Valparaiso; relax in the pretty coastal town of Vina del Mar; and visit the home of Nobel laureate, Pablo Neruda.

Easter Island is renowned as the farthest island from any populated land on the planet, and its remote location has protected it from the influences of the modern world more than perhaps anywhere else on earth. Your team of private guides will expertly bring the island’s ancient history and rich eco-system to life as they lead you into sacred spots of jaw-dropping beauty. You’ll also enjoy a restful experience and warm hospitality at a premium beach-side island hotel, and in comfortable centrally-located accommodations on the mainland. ... Show More »

  • MaryBurchenal — December 12, 2014 — South America

    We are back. We did have a wonderful time with our daughter and I certainly had no reason at all for being at all nervous that things would not go smoothly. Everyone associated with our time in Iguazu Falls was helpful, more than pleasant and always on time. I thought originally that we could manage such a trip on our own. But when we got there and saw the hassles we would have run into with the visas, border crossings, transportation and such, I realized that going the way we did was the wise choice. Absolutely we would travel with you again. And if anyone asks about the best way to see that part of the country, I would not hesitate to recommend KT.

  • Janet Huebert — December 12, 2014 — South America

    Well, Cindy, we’ve been home for a week but I can’t stop replaying every day of our wonderful holiday in my head! It was all that I had hoped for and MORE! We enjoyed all of the locations we visited – the beauty of the landscapes, the sight of wildlife, the rich culture & interesting history of Argentina & the outgoing, positive attitude of its people. Our guides were terrific – so friendly & knowledgeable & helpful & enthusiastic! We had no delays or difficulties & our accommodations were outstanding. Have I mentioned that it was a FABULOUS holiday??!!! My thanks to you for coordinating, booking, confirming and generally taking care of our requests in planning our adventure.

  • Ann Schiller — December 12, 2014 — South America

    Fabulous trip to Machu Picchu, Cusco and Lima. Trip of a lifetime with a sensational group of guides, drivers, and transfer staff! Loved the Sanctuary Lodge! A must! Thank you, Nella Huaringa, for planning this amazing journey! Thanks for making sure we didn't miss a thing on our itinerary even when we lost a travel day, due to a broken airplane that turned back midair, on our way to Lima. We appreciate your service above and beyond.

  • WendyRobinson — December 12, 2014 — South America

    Wow! All my life, I have planned and organized our trips, requiring considerable research and contact time--not to mention, most significantly, all the stress involved at each destination to make sure all connections are made. This time, I put it in the hands of some extremely capable people--and sat back and relaxed. And relax I did! We were booked into full-service, quality accommodations at all times; our transport and tour guidance were all on an individual, private basis, except where public transportation was in order; and--most valuable to us--we were met and assisted through all travel/hotel connections. We truly felt pampered. At one point, in fact, we had a problem with an immigration paper that we had lost, and a Kensington representative personally accompanied us through the whole process of replacing it--even though we were officially "on our own" that day. That's what makes the difference--the responsibility and accountability toward clients. Kudos to Kensington and to our representative, Brandi Merchant. We are already planning more travel and see no reason to look any further than to an agency that has earned our trust.

  • LorettaCappuccitti — December 12, 2014 — South America

    We had a wonderful time on our trip. The accommodations were all great. The guides and drivers were all very pleasant and knowledgeable. We were very happy with our choice of destinations and with the way the trip was organized. It was a lot of flying in two weeks but well worth it. Erika was able to accommodate a short-notice addition (Nazca Lines) to our trip which we appreciated. Thank you Erika for your help. Great trip!!

  • Christina Adams — April 21, 2014 — South America

    I know it's silly to give all 10's, obviously every trip has it's ups and downs, but if it hadn't been for our Kensington Tours planning, guides and drivers we would have been lost! It was wonderful to be out in a strange new environment yet know we had a safety net and a friendly face. The places we visited were awesome but I think we'll remember most the people that we met. Thank you and I'll send photos soon! Sincerely, Christina Adams

  • Frank  Manna — April 21, 2014 — South America

    Our guided transfers were exceptionally accommodating even though our flights were considerably delayed. The Annavillanas Jungle Lodge was spectacular for location, accommodations and food. The Rio Carnival experience was unique and unforgettable and our seats were wonderful. Loved the location of our hotel in Rio.......right on the street of Copacabana Beach.......fantastic.

  • Vivian Jennings — April 21, 2014 — South America

    Very pleased with organization. Not having to worry about connections or arrangements is wonderful. Great selection with hotels, Coral 1 and Napo Wildlife. Kensington puts all the details together to ensure a wonderful trip. Highly recommend the Galapagos and Amazon.

  • Daniel More — April 21, 2014 — South America

    All was great. Guides were knowledgeable, personable, friendly... that's what really made the trip.

  • Marlin Barad — April 21, 2014 — South America

    Sofia, thank you for putting together a great trip. We certainly enjoyed ourselves very much. The planning and care was excellent. We hope we can do another trip with you all soon. Marlin Barad
