  • Reviewer: located in Osoyoos, BC Canada
    We recently returned from  taking the "South America Journey" trip arranged by Ker & Downey.  This  was our second trip with Ker & Downey, last year we enjoyed the thrilling "Classic Botswana Safari". South America has been on our list of "things to do", therefore with the excellent service provided by Ker & Downey last year, we decided to book the "South America Journey" which we  saw on  the Ker & Downey website.  Ker & Downey were again able to design a custom trip  which took us to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.  From the moment we were met at the Jorge Chavez airport in Lima, Peru until we departed from the airport in Quito, Ecuador this journey was   nothing short of clockwork precision.  All our accommodation and tours were first class, excellent food and ALL our personal guides/drivers in Peru and Ecuador should be commended for their knowledge and professionalism and foremost their friendliness.  Both Peru and Ecuador are beautiful, beautiful countries as are their people.  The "Coral 1" and crew were no exception, they were terrific, as was the complete tour in the Galapagos Islands.We again would like to say a "BIG THANK YOU" to Ker & Downey, for putting together  this enjoyable and exciting " South America Journey " one we will remember for a life time. The itinerary and trip could not have been any better! Thanks again and hopefully we  will be able to¬ book another exciting journey with Ker & Downey in the near future.
