What our globetrotters say

My husband has always been a person who makes his own travel plans. Tours were never his “thing”. Goway’s individual and small group guides and their attention to detail convinced him he had been missing out. All of our guides were well informed and attentive. Our guide Roberto saw to every detail. He was very well informed without being obtrusive. He was extremely well organized. His 22 years of experience as a guide were evident. I know it is his job, but my point is, he is very good at it. Our compliments to Goway.
- Nancy Hall


Goway did a beautiful job putting everything together, I don’t think I truly realized how many “logistics” were required to make everything run as smoothly as it did. The representatives, transfers, air arrangements, hotel choices and ultimately – the experience of being in South America is something I believe we will always treasure. Thank you for listening so carefully to what we were asking for and for exceeding expectations. Your efforts in putting this together for us were very much appreciated and I am happy to recommend others to you. Will be in touch again in the future to start planning the next exotic trip.
