  • Charles B. — May 25, 2016 — South America

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Peru. The Kensington representatives took all of the stress out of the logistics and were very welcoming and knowledgeable.

  • Gerri G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    Excellent service from our Kensington staff contact, and terrific guides and hotels. All transfers at airports were seamless.

  • Mauricio G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    We were absolutely wowed and impressed by the level of detail in both the planning and accommodation of our needs. This trip was planned on a very short notice so we did not have high expectations. However, every moment of our trip from airport transfers, guides, sights to the culture of Peru were delivered leaving memories beyond our expectation. Thanks again to Nella and all guides in Peru.

  • William M. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    All the guides were extremely helpful and courteous.

  • Lisa H. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    We have been on numerous trips with Kensington and have always been more than pleased with ALL aspects: friendly, patient and knowledgeable staff, various personalized itineraries, ease of reaching agent with questions, accommodations, tour guides, transportation, flexibility, activities offered, guidance/suggestions, concern/contacting us when we're traveling, welcome gift at our hotel and more. We know we're in excellent hands from beginning to end with Kensington -- a top of the line agency with personalized, custom trips of a lifetime- at an affordable price. Thanks Kensington!

  • Dan W. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    Sales consultant was very helpful and patient with last minute planning. Trip was well organized. On the ground in Peru, people were very responsive. I was very happy with the end result.

  • Rosanne R. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    I was very impressed with the timeliness, courteousness and knowledge of our drivers and guides. It was luxurious and comforting to be in their hands! Frederico was wonderful in BA, as well as Vicky for the half-day tour, and Vivienne in Iguazu was excellent. Appreciated the help with the itinerary from Matt's pre-trip. Also loved the flexibility of choosing our own dates and length of time in each place. Top notch agency!

  • Minaxi P. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    I was very impressed with Kensington. Our tour guides were wonderful and very well educated. we especially liked our guide in Scared Valley and Cusco. We will be using Kensington again. Thank you!

  • Bonita T. — May 13, 2016 — South America

    Erika was great. Darwig was great. Alberto was great. Caesar was great. Service at hotels was stellar. Had a wonderful time.

  • Gerald R. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    I would highly recommend the Explora Lodge as the truly only best way to experience the park on the the Chilean side. The hotel's setting inside the park is spectacular and the overall experience staying at the lodge is excellent - top quality dining, service, and guided activities. The El Splendor hotel in El Calafate Argentina is perfectly adequate, and being within walking distance of restaurants and shops in town is a plus. I highly recommend the gourmet cruise I took on Lake Argentina to see two of the glaciers up close as well as numerous blue icebergs. The food and service were excellent. Also the hotels in Buenos Aires and Santiago were very good and in good locations.
