Viva Expeditions Have Tours To Please Everyone

Viva Expeditions Have Tours To Please Everyone

Viva Expeditions’ fully escorted small group tours are virtually all-inclusive, travelling in one of their purpose built, deluxe expedition vehicles and enjoying the comforts of quality tourist class hotels and fully catered camps throughout the journey. Viva Expeditions also cater to the independent traveller with their custom made tours, designed to the traveller’s requirements. They also offer active adventures, hiking in the Andes and multisport tours in the Galapagos Islands with expedition cruises and much more.

To this end, it is interesting to read the ‘testimonials’ page of their website where ‘happy campers’ write in to tell of their experiences with Viva. Testimonies like these are usually an accurate pointer to the success, or otherwise, of a business so it comes as no surprise that Viva Expeditions have many satisfied customers.

“My recent trip to Patagonia was my second to South America but my first with Viva Expeditions. It was a fantastic experience that I will never forget. Every day was filled with something new and exciting to see and do. Mel and Franco were wonderful as our tour leader and driver and made sure that everyone was well looked after. Mel's cooking was great and even her restaurant recommendations on our free nights were spot on. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in travelling to Patagonia. I hope to travel to more parts of South America with Viva in the near future, hopefully with Mel and Franco in charge!” Rachel Symons.

“We had an amazing tour of Argentina and Chile in February in a comfortable vehicle with our wonderful guides Mel and Franco. We saw so many places we would have missed if we were travelling on our own. The hiking was great showing us some wonderful views, the rafting was terrific and the visit to the vineyard was made special by having us make up our own wine. A lot of fun. We couldn’t fault the restaurants we ate in and there was no fixed menu. A very well thought out trip and a big thank you to Viva”. Bob & Chris Adams.

“I can just give you extremely positive feedback! Melinda and Franco have been so kind and helpful! I also think that the "carretera austral tour" is a great itinerary, very different from the main touristic attractions (that are obviously very worth to see too) and brings you in the very heart of the country! We had a wonderful time, thank you for everything!” Alessia Gabbianelli & Alessandro Gera.

It is a well-known fact that ‘word of mouth’ can be an extremely valuable marketing tool and these are a great advertisement for their services. For more information please visit .
