Our story started in 1994 when Thomas visited Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. There he met Diego, who was working as a ranger, and also Xabi who was (and still is) a Torres del Paine guide. Together they trekked pretty much every trail in the park. Thomas returned to the UK with an enormous love of Chile and a plan for a new travel company. Much time was spent preparing the ground for an operator specialising predominately in Chile, Peru and Spain. In 1999 we launched, focused on delivering bespoke holidays to amazing destinations. From the outset we did things differently – we wanted to create something special and outstanding, so our clients can best experience exceptional places. Nothing we do is ‘off the shelf.’ Since then, our range of destinations has grown to take in many Latin American countries, and more of Spain. What hasn’t changed is the way we create your holiday. A great deal of thought and care goes into each day of your holiday, blending the best ingredients together. For that reason we describe our holidays as handmade. This is the ethos behind everything we do, and what we believe makes us different.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
