    "Just wanted to thank you. We are back from Costa Rica and had a wonderful trip. Everything worked really well, on time and we had really good time. Also, I wanted to comment on your contacts in Costa Rica- they were very responsive, helped solve problems on the spot and it was very reassuring to have them there."

    "For any single traveling woman - no fear! I, a single 61 year old female, traveled through Egypt & Jordan with absolutely no fear or concern for my safety. Not because I am brave but because there was no external cause for fear. The representatives who met me at the airports, the guides (especially Sam), and the drivers were all wonderful and very informative. The tour was first class and I would love to take another with Kinsington Tours and will recommend them to all my friends."

    "We are back and we had a wonderful trip. Everything was perfectly organized, with the right balance between time with a guide and free time. We were very lucky with the weather, no rain at all except for a 20 minutes thunderstorm in Dalat. Halong Bay was very clear all the time although it is supposed to be foggy during the day. The Metropole was perfect, the best breakfasts ever, the boat, Jasmine, wonderful and we were only 14 people instead of 44…,the Palm Garden in Hoi An very nice, the Ana Mandara in Nha Trang, pure Heaven, the Sofitel in Dalat beautiful, almost empty and a very friendly staff."

Itinerary

Day 1 Jackson

Jackson is in Northwest Wyoming, close to the south end of Grand Teton National Park. It is the gateway to two of the United States' best-known national parks, Grand Teton itself and nearby Yellowstone. Many famous people maintain vacation homes in and around this area. The combined elements of beautiful mountain scenery, Old West heritage, tourist traps and celebrity residents give this small town a unique atmosphere both cosmopolitan and frontier. "Jackson" is the name of the town, while "Jackson Hole" refers to either the greater valley area or the Jackson Hole Ski Resort. Salt Lake City, Utah, served by several major airlines, is about a five hour drive from Jackson.

You will be provided with a pre-departure package which will include all necessary information that you will need for your trip including materials such as vouchers, maps, train tickets (if relevant) etc.

Enjoy a private transfer between your Teton Village area hotel and Jackson Hole airport.

There are so many things to do that can fill your days while you are at Jackson - the difficult thing will be to decide what to do! Options include hot air ballooning, a hunting trip, jeep tours, Llama packing (hiking with a llama carrying your back pack!), miniature golf, mountaineering, a photography excursion, horseback riding, biking, boating, chuck wagon dinners, fishing, river float trips, hiking, golf, elk bugling - Fall foliage tour, alpine slide (an exhilarating slide down Snow King Mountain).

After your naturalist educates you on plants, wildlife and geological history of the area, it is then time to take your newfound knowledge to the Grand Canyon of the Snake River for your white-water rafting adventure.
