Tucan Travel Reviews and Feedback

Overall Rating:

group in Africa


Feedback is very important to us. That is why we ask our travellers to review their tour and submit a detailed post tour questionnaire after they have completed their travels. From their feedback we can build a detailed picture of our passengers' experiences on tour and use that information to continuously quality control and improve our itineraries.

We have published some of those reviews, as well as reviews left on third party websites, so you can read some of what has been said about us. We feel the best way to tell you about the effort we put in to running amazing trips, is to stay quiet and let our past travellers do it for us!

We also receive a lot of letters and emails from past travellers, which you can read here. If you would like to submit feedback please consult our feedback page to learn how.

"I went on the Bex South American Explorer with guides Fabiana and Nienka. I had a really wonderful time during the 112 days. Also want to mention that Alfonso the driver was superb. So much more then just a driver. He is a real credit to Tucan and a valuable asset. The Bex tour is a brilliant way to get around South America."

"We completed the Sacred Valley and Inca Trail trip with Tucan. It was a 7 day 6 night trip and all the accommodation and most of the meals were provided in the price.

The guides provided were very friendly and very knowledgeable and the 2 guides stayed with the group for the whole trip. The setup of the hike was amazing, the porters were great and prepared delicious meals and prepared all the tents so when you arrive at the destination you could relax.

I found the whole trip great value for money and would recommend Tucan to anyone about to take on the Inca Trail."

"The Southern cross tour from Rio to Lima was an absolute splendid and magical tour. So much fun and gained so much knowledge and understanding toward other cultures. Our tour leader Beth and driver Mike did an absolute amazing job the whole way. Loved it."

"I enjoyed having accommodation & travel all taken care of, while having the freedom during the day to do as I liked. By going out by myself, i got to explore more. The accommodation was basic, but adequate. And it was good to travel using local transportation. It provided a feeling of being part of the culture...just a bit. I appreciated being a part of a small group. There were enough people for company, without the big group mentality."

"Totally exceeded my expectations. Accommodation was of a good standard. Food was always tasty. Excursions were always interesting and worth seeing. Mostly though the success of the trip was down to a great group and a really excellent leader and driver. Chloe was fantastic. Her local knowledge, ability to speak the language and ability to cook delicious meals were particular strengths."

"i really enjoyed my holiday (mayan circle through mexico, guatemala and belize). i haven't done anything like this since my student days and was travelling on my own. i'm 50. we had a great itinerary and although it certainly says that many trips are optional i don't think that i had quite appreciated the magnitude of the extra expense. some of the trips were also charged at a premium compared with other operators - we paid twice as much to see whale sharks for example as some other people on the same boat. it was a keenly priced trip and some of the accommodation reflected this at very much the economy end of the spectrum. overall i would recommend but with qualifications and i would advise seeklng out alternatives for the optional trips and saving some money - i would not accept the advice of the tour guide at face value"

"We weren't sure what we were getting ourselves into with this trip, we prepared the best we could with the info provided, which worked good. In the end the trip was awesome!! The area was stunning, the people were kind, and the tour leaders were amazing! We got extra lucky, we had Paul our main tour leader and he was training Angel a second leader, both were wonderful people who made us feel very safe."

"It was a very on the go tour which enabled me to see quite a lot in a short amount of time. Our guide was lovely. Leena always had a smile on her face. Vesna in Slovakia was one of my favourite stays. The couple were lovely."

"The trip leader and co leader were well organized, polite, and friendly. They made the trip a pleasant experience. It was a plus that they were fluent in the language of the country and we could go to them for help anytime. I am talking about Becky and Helen. I liked the Itinerary because we could learn about the people and country while also having fun moments. If I choose to take another trip next summer I would mostly likely book with Tucan Travel."
