What Our Customers
Say...

We had a very special experience organized by you in Feb, especially the wedding in Antarctica and our stay in Patagonia. Thank you.
You were right, Chile is enormous! We packed so much into to our two weeks and despite the huge distances we still found time to sit back and enjoy the incredible scenery. I don’t believe any country could offer more diversity, we were sat up on the Atacama Desert one week and surrounded by penguins and glaciers the next. Still not sure how all the logistics worked out so well, but they did so thank you. Loved all three of the Tierra properties so a great recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the estancia, took me back to my childhood when I worked on a farm, although I don’t remember eating steak as good as that when I was a child!
The holiday did exactly what it said on the tin and delivered everything that I hoped it would and more. Seeing pumas in the wild was a real privilege and a dream come true, thoroughly enjoyed all the hiking in Torres Del Paine as well and of course the wine tasting in Mendoza definitely went down a treat!!!
We would like to thank you with all our heart for our fabulous trip. It was amazing. Everything was perfect. I recommend Antarctica and South America to everybody. Doing business with you was also a great experience. You are the best travel agent I ever met. I hope to have the chance to do business with you again in the future.
We've just got back from out trip to Patagonia and the Antarctic and want to say a big thank you to all of you at Wildfoot but specifically you, Tina and Sara, for organising our trip and sorting out all my queries before we went. You've all been thoroughly professional - and friendly with it. I always get concerned that hotels won't have received the booking, the air e-tickets won't be recognised or luggage ends up somewhere other that where we are, but I didn't need to worry as everything was well planned in advance and the various elements, air travel, two cruises, hotels etc, fitted seamlessly. You can take this as a 10 out of 10 satisfaction rating and recommendation for your company. You will certainly be my 'go to' provider if we ever do anything similar in the future. Thanks once again for our trip of a lifetime.
I just got back from my trip. It was fabulous. The Falklands were perfect for me. Lots of birds, few people, lots of time to wander around on my own. All the islands were wonderful. The only day that was not excellent was the trip to Dolphin point. A long drive, few birds and few sea lions. I was very lucky with the weather. Lots of wind but hardly any rain. I debated whether to do this or go to antarctica, and am delighted I did this. La Yegua Loca in PA was a delight. I usually could care less about hotels and restaurants on trips like this, but La Yegua Loca was wonderful. The new restaurant they have - a glass enclosed space on the terrace in front of the hotel with old tools as fixtures and views out to the straights and delicious food was great. The only change I would make doing it again was to work with you better on flights. I wanted to use frequent flyer miles on American Airlines so I made reservations from Boston to Santiago and you did the rest. I didn't know there was a flight from Santiago to Mt. Pleasant (by way of PA). And I could have left PA and come all the way home without another night and say in Santiago. But that was minor. Thanks again. Danny
