Layna has been amazingly responsive and thorough. I tend to ask a lot of questions and she has patiently and professionally responded with detailed information.

Layna has been amazingly flexible and helpful with our tour planning. My only suggestion is that if the travel agent you are working with is not available by phone or email within 24 hours (sickness, on vacation or whatever) that a message indicates that person is not available. I was used to getting a response from Layna within 24-hours on all my questions, but she was sick and out of touch for a few days. I am totally understanding of this situation,but planning for this big of a trip and not getting my standard response made me uneasy and worried. Otherwise, I have been thrilled with all the information and the willingness of Layna to ask additional questions of the other vendors for us. Thanks!

I looked at numerous different Machu Picchu itineraries and companies and Detour offered the best amenities and support that I could find. It was easy to book and although I made my reservation nearly a year in advance they have stayed in frequent contact with me. The trip is next week and we are ready to go.

From the beginning stages of planning our trip to Lima, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos, Layna has been more than helpful. She gave many helpful suggestions once we provided her with a budget and some dates. She planned an excellent trip for us based on our requirements and wishes. I am a nervous traveller and she was reassuring, practical, and clearly well informed. Every step of the planning Layna provided us with detailed information and/or instructions on how to navigate these steps. We are also concerned about the environment and felt that Layna provided excellent advice as to how to make the least impact on these beautiful places. The companies that Detour partners with (in our case Exito and Ecoventura) were also helpful in arranging air travel and yacht travel. I would definitely say that Detour Travel really are Latin America’s travel experts. We were especially impressed with Layna’s knowledge, helpfulness and her infinite patience. She is someone who goes “above and beyond” in her job.

Layna was so helpful and informative. She offered me choices and let me know the pros and cons of each choice. Very helpful in my decision making. Layna also was prompt in her responses. Thank you Layna for making the preparation for this trip easy for me.

Layna has been amazing from the first day I contacted Detour! She was always quick to respond to any questions I had (and I had many) and often had suggestions about things I would have otherwise not considered.Thanks to Layna our trip has been well planned and includes absolutely everything that we had hoped to see and do! I would not hesitate to book with Detour in the future!

Layna understood what I explained we wanted in a trip immediately and sent only suggestions that fit our criteria. She communicated clearly and answered any questions very quickly. I think it is important that the person planning your trip has actually been there. We leave for our trip in a couple of days. I believe it was well planned and our family is looking forward to it.

Layna always got back to us to answer our questions. Our disappointment came when we didn’t get our pre trip information. It came after we had departed.

This is our third trip with detourdestinations and as usual, the personalized service with our booking is beyond compare. We are looking forward to a wonderful, carefree adventure!

Booking this trip was amazing. Layna was so accommodating and patient with us to work toward the ultimate combination of Peru and Galapagos. The 2 companies she put together were perfect. Her recommendations for what to bring and how to approach the different countries was right on. The guides that we had in Peru was impressive in their knowledge of history, culture and areas of interest. Each was very personable and so were the drivers that we had. Andria in Lima and Gonzalo in Machu Picchu were especially good.
