The email landed in my inbox like a gift box being dropped on my desk. And there in front of my eyes, as beautiful as any hand-made bow I'd ever seen, was the headline for a new review just posted on Trip Advisor. "A Life-Changing Adventure with Adios Adventure Travel." Contained in the review was the most benevolent comment anyone could make about a travel company. "These people are not tour operators, they are our friends."

"The Little Company That Could"

That pretty much sums it up for us. We're the little company that could. We're small and nimble. And friendly. With an office in the US and an office in Peru.  We operate our trips like we run our homes.  "Hands-on."  To say we love our jobs is an understatement. The fan mail from our groups is consistently good, but usually sent privately. So to be recognized publicly for a good job?  Well. This review was: Best. Day. Ever.

Latest Travel Trend

Joining the list of recent popular trends, the latest is traveling with boutique tour operators. (Finally!) Although it may be difficult to prove, Adios Adventure Travel is one of the smallest tour operators in the world. Co-owned by Jacquie Whitt in the US, and Vidal Jaquehua in Peru.  Each office is licensed locally, but works collaboratively. And equity is shared. Our staff and partners in the countries in which we operate, are chosen as if they will be our soulmates. You can't take this stuff lightly.  Skills are great.  But ethics drive the selections. You can't teach charisma!

What's In It For You?

The biggest benefit you get from a small tour operator is the personal connection to real travel experts, beginning with the very first contact.  And people are surprised at how affordable customized travel services are.
