Richard Engle of Protravel International, Chicago, IL; traveled to Colombia

My experience with Spiced Destinations in Colombia was excellent. Spiced manages to track down the BEST guides, the most UNIQUE experiences, and the most reliable transportation options. It’s clear to me that this company focuses on the details that make a luxury trip true luxury….without losing sight of the big picture. We had the perfect balance of metro/rural, of up-to-date/contemporary Colombia alongside traditional, and our tour highlighted the fact that Colombia is one of the most biodiverse nations on earth. Thank you for a great journey!

Jodi Zoph, Owner of Mindful Journeys Travel; traveled to Colombia

I just returned from an incredible journey through Colombia led by Spiced Destinations. As a small tour operator Spiced Destinations was able to show us the intimate life of Colombians without the cookie-cutter feel of a large operator. The guides were personable and vivacious; their enthusiasm and pride for Colombia were contagious. In every region, the tours were unique. Every day provided an undisclosed surprise whether a barbecue set up in a meadow or meeting with an art dealer who opened our eyes to the colorful Colombian art world. This trip was curated with extraordinary care and detail. I wouldn't change one aspect of the itinerary. Thank you, Spiced Destinations for your outstanding care and planning for your clients. Bravo!

Thank you, again, Eitan, for including me on this trip. Your professionalism and passion for your business is exemplary. I look forward to working with you again.

Barbara R. from Southfield, MI: traveled to Iceland

Everything worked out wonderfully. You did a fantastic job of taking care of all the details - even when we missed our culinary tour, it was rescheduled. Thanks to all for a carefree journey. BTW we ate fermented shark on the culinary tour, and it wasn’t so bad. We skipped the ram’s testicles and singed sheep head which we understand are also Icelandic specialties.
I should have added that this guide was very well informed and spoke without major prompting from us - we like that rather than having to interview a guide.

Janys G. from New York, NY; traveled to India and the Maldives

We had such a great time ....everything was planned beautifully and we really are so happy we made the trip!! We loved all the activities and all the guides and especially our driver. He took great care of us and even making sure all was well in the Maldives too. I told the agent in India that he he was excellent. Even with the terrible roads in Kerala I felt very comfortable with him.
Thank you for another amazing trip....we have to think of our next one!

Tom S. from Mcleansboro, IL; traveled to Nepal and Sri Lanka

We wanted to thank you for helping to make our trip very special. All of the accommodations were wonderful in different ways. Our guides & drivers were definitely a diverse & interesting group, most spoke good English & were very knowledgeable. The whole experience at Chitwan was wonderful, & service was over the top! Carolyn wanted to adopt Sanjay who seemed to be our personal man Friday.
Wild Coast Tented Lodge has to be experienced to believe how good the “tents” are. It is hard to beat wild animals on the property, sundowners on the beach every night, service with a smile, & safaris every day. I do not know how you found out about the dinner with the family out in the country, but it was something special. The overall feeling on the whole trip was how friendly everyone was.
If you have anyone looking for an experience "off the beaten path” send them on this trip, & they will not be disappointed. Thanks, Tom & Carolyn
