Traveler Testimonials

F. Durban
“I cannot praise Francis enough. He made the trip, especially Machu Picchu, extremely memorable. His explanations of the Inca people and culture, as well as that of Peruvians today made me understand the peoples of Peru. Francis is a treasure."

S. Schnall
“I can't say enough good things about our expedition leaders. Not only were they knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their areas of expertise, but they were kind and helpful human beings. I so appreciate their willingness to assist with special requests. They were fun and unbelievably patient and accommodating with our group. This trip exceeded my expectations. I am not able to really fully express how wonderful everything was--from my pre-trip to the end. Your office staff were wonderful, the guides fabulous, and the group itself remarkable. I am a fan of Natural Habitat.”

M. L. Archer
“The absolute best of my many foreign trips.”

K. Bogart
“I loved the places we stayed, each one so unique!...LOVED, LOVED, LOVED taking the train - so fun to see the scenery going by! Fabulous, Fantastic, Wonderful, Fun, Charming, Patient, Knowledgeable, Darling, Efficient, and he could dance! - LOVED HIM! I can't think of enough superlatives to describe Francis. He was unbelievably fun and made us all feel instantly 'at home' and 'part of his family'. His playful nature made us feel like he was a kid brother - so why was he also the expert on everything? It was incredible - his knowledge and passion for every subject made it easy to take it all in and enjoy every minute. NOT TO MENTION that without his patience and encouragement, I personally would never have made it halfway up Machu Picchu (whining all the way, I am afraid - poor man!), but still he kept encouraging me and I MADE IT! and it was SO WORTH IT! Thank you, Francis - it was so worth it to see it all from that guard tower! What a view!”

T. Dawson
"Francis was a super guide. We can't give him enough praise. We were his number one priority. We highly recommend him. We just can't say enough good things about him. He made us feel like family."

J. Evens
"I've been on (and led) many organized trips and must say unequivocally that Francis stands out as the best leader I've experienced. His calm demeanor, sincerity, organizational skills, and obvious love of his country added immeasurably to each day of the trip. Truly a gifted leader."

L. Bomberger
“I especially enjoyed our unscheduled stop at a residential bar in a tiny village – we sipped chicha with locals.”

C. Tamasik
“Francis is a gem. We loved him. He was unfailingly pleasant, helpful, courteous, respectful and he carried the junk: emergency medical kit, extra water, maps, etc. He gave us lots of tips on how to deal with the locals. He was very well-versed in the history of the area and seemed to have a rapport with many of the shop keepers, hotel people, restaurant people, etc all of which made the trip run smoothly. His English was excellent. He was fun too. He enjoyed our somewhat rowdy group and played along with us. (Imagine 6 women in their 50's and 60's, all but two of whom knew each other before, travelling together -- we got along like we've known each other for years and had lots of fun. I think Francis enjoyed us too.) We all played well off each other. Francis is the best guide I've ever had on a trip. I hope you pay him well --- he deserves it! Daniel was an excellent guide in the Amazon. He was so enthusiastic about the place. He told us he grew up there and his love for the land and the people was infectious. Each day was a new and sometimes thrilling experience. Machu Picchu is, of course, breathtaking. I loved the little town at the base of the site. Cusco was wonderful - colorful and lively. The Amazon was just spectacular. What's not to like? You do a wonderful job at NatHab!!“

B. Hanson
“Francis was absolutely outstanding. When I said good-bye on the last day, I felt like I was saying good-bye to a friend, not just someone who was our host. Francis was professional, engaging, accommodating and just down right funny! He really made the trip a memorable one for us.”

S. Joyce
“Francis was phenomenal. He was professional, courteous and really paid attention to our group and any questions we had. In my opinion he was above and beyond any expectations I had and I think he is a huge asset to Nat Hab to have him as part of your group. If all of your guides are like him I can't wait until my next trip!”

B. Seevers
“This trip was the best experience I have ever had. Excellent attention to detail, high quality facilities and, most important, outstanding guides. Nat Hab’s small groups and overall mission and philosophy matches ours perfectly!”
