a perfect Africa safary

By: Rudy

Reviewed on: 25 Nov 2013

Jon started the trip preperation with a meeting with the trip operator. During the discussion all our questions were answered. It was very helpful that Jon had visited the same area in Africa and was able to give us tips and explained what we should exspect. All preperations were done on time. Prior to our trip we received all the necessary paper work. This was our best organized trip using a travel agency. We will be back for our next trip.

Except for a miscommunication about the need to rush to the joburg's airport to get our charter flight to londolozi all our helpers and drivers were wonderful. Special recognition for the services of our Cape Town guide Naseer January and for binny ridgeway, our hiking guide.

Doji and andBeyond Bhutan

By: Treybig Family

We LOVED andBeyond Bhutan. This is an absolute bucket list top 3 must and andBeyond is the only on site tour operator to make it happen. Our tour guide Doji was fantastic. He was fun, funny, knowledgeable, and willing to make changes seamlessly in our itinerary based upon our needs. The trip was flawless and we already want to go back.

My wife and I used andBeyond during our recent trip to Kenya and Tanzania. We were very pleased with over all service. We had a small mishap at the beginning of the trip but was immediately resolved with very attentive service and a bottle of wine awaiting for us at our first destination. Our accomations were great, the personal were outstanding and we were always greeted with a smile. We had several flights during this trip with no issues. At each destination, a representative welcomed us and made sure everything was fine. Highly recommend andBeyond!!!!!

Fabulous Trips in and around Santiago

By: Simon

I used and Beyond in Santiago, Chile. Gary James did a fabulous job, tailoring each of my tours to exactly what I wanted to do and see, from seeing local markets and eating Chilean food, to hiking in the mountains outside of Santiago. I highly recommend anyone going to Santiago to use them for getting to know Chile and Santiago.

The best trip I've ever taken. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

By: Susan

It was wonderful! The hotel was great, the views, beyond amazing, the staff, very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed every moment of this once in a lifetime trip. Only once did we get a little concerned. We were having lunch & some monkeys decided to join us. A person from the hotel came over to us with an air rifle. He looked very professional. The monkeys took one look at him and scattered ! Victoria Falls were amazing. We spent a lot of time in the area to take in all the beauty. The outings in a jeep with the scout sitting up front, were exciting to say the least. I could go on and on. Again it was the most amazing thing I've ever done & I'll never forget the thrill of it all.

On a recent trip through India, we were thrilled with the level of service provided by And Beyond. The attention to detail was marvelous. All of our tour guides were perfectly fluent in english and so knowledgeable about their country's history. We felt completely at ease and safe in the hands of And Beyond. We particularly enjoyed our driver who was with us for the first 7 or 8 days - he was wonderful! Thank you And Beyond for a top notch experience!

Bhutan is so unique that it is difficult to do it justice. It is so beautiful and peaceful. The resorts are some of the best in the world and our tour guide was fabulous. My youngest still talks about our tour guide. Our guide was flexible and adjusted to our family's needs and desires on the fly. The tour operator made sure we took in many cities and sites. Bhutan was a highlight of our 2 months of traveling.

This was our first trip to Botswana and we weren't entirely sure what to expect, but our experience with andBeyond exceeded all of our expectations. Every single andBeyond person we met was friendly and helpful. You really feel like you're being attended to, and their expertise makes the entire experience seemless. From our great guide, friendly service, excellent food, and little fun surprises along the way, I just can't recommend andBeyond highly enough.

As their name suggests -- &Beyond -- did just that. They went above and beyond. First, amazing guide and driver. Truly took care of us and gave us a unique experience. Incredibly knowledgeable -- culture, religion, people, nature. Also, we had a couple of issues come up -- an injury and a broken phone and some change of plans -- they handled everything with professionalism and a "can do" attitude.

We had an extraordinary guide in Bhutan who bent and flexed with us every step of the way. From arranging a visit from the royal acupuncturist, to having a cel phone sent out to be fixed while on a hike so that said cel phone could take pictures of the remainder of the hike, Lekden was on top of it all. And back at homebase, Richi was managing the details of cutting my trip short with very little notice, all done with grace. I would travel with &Beyond Bhutan any day!

Bhutan Bound

Guide and driver were excellent. We had unexpectedly rainy days and a medical issue and Lekden our guide was able to handle all of that with skill and flexibility. All the lodges we stayed at Aldo offered top notch service. Would have like to have been offered the option of using helicopter for the long drive. And also going to Paro from Delhi it would have been nice to be in business class and also on the side of the plane best suited for viewing Mount Everest.

    Our Commitment

    For over 30 years, every decision that &Beyond makes, from our greater conservation model to the tiniest details of the activities that take place across our tour operations, revolves around our core ethic of Care of the Land, Wildlife and People. These values have become an intuitive part of the way that we operate and are an integral element of our guest experience. We believe in taking less and giving more, and we let this belief shape the everyday choices we make at each of our 29 lodges and 18 on-site offices.

    Through these choices and with the support of our guests, we have been building a vision that allows us to run sustainable operations in natural places that need to be preserved. This vision is guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and underpins our goal for 2030, which is to scale our impact by increasing our protected biospheres and wildlife eco-systems from 9M acres to 50M acres – 25M of directly controlled/managed land & 25M of managed land influenced by our impact coalitions- and by empowering and creating shared value with the surrounding communities. This will be funded by doubling our revenue and tripling our profit through the delivery of extraordinary guest experiences that go beyond the expected in Africa, Asia and South America.
