We found Eclipse Travel provided excellent service in planning and booking our 6 week trip to Africa. 5 days in Cape Town, overland to Victoria Falls and 2 weeks Safari in Kenya and Tanzania.
We did not encounter any problems and the trip exceeded expectations.

AMAZING SAFARI EXPERIENCE - I would like to thank Eclipse Travel and Mauricio for arranging my recent very enjoyable safari to Kenya and Tanzania. Everything went without a hitch and all the transfers smooth. The animal viewing was just amazing, all far better than I ever imagined, and the safari lodges incredible, all making for a memorable photographic experience and holiday at a reasonable cost that I can recommend.

Our 25 day trip organised by Eclipse to Africa was amazing. All connections and transfers worked with no hitches. Accommodation was wonderful ,a variety as we had asked for and our expectations of safaris and animals were more than met. An amazing experience. We were well informed at all stages of our planning and listened to. Great company to travel with.

A big Thank you to Eclipse Travel for organizing our fabulous holiday.
It was even better than I had hoped, the guides were all fabulous, I have always organised our overseas holidays and to be honest was wondering if the extra money spent on this one was going to be worth it?
Well we were both blown away with all the transfers and guides. It was really easy and I didn’t have to worry about anything. We were both really happy that we had decided to go through Eclipse and really appreciated all the work that you put in to make it the holiday of a lifetime
We loved every day and every destination.
Our favourite was the Galapagos and we really wished that we had have had an extra day on both Santa Cruz and Isabella islands, one of our stand out days was the day trip to North Seymore island, our guide Xavier was so good we felt like we were in a David Attenborough documentary.
South America exceeded our expectations so much, that we our already talking about going back, maybe Bolivia, Argentina and Patagonia.
I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing experience, as you can probably tell we loved this holiday and were very sad to have to come home.

Organisation and service on and before the trip was excellent. The only problem encounter was on the flight to Oslo via Tronso. Passport control at the airport is inadequate and resulted in a long delay that meant several passengers missed connections in Oslo. This is a problem for the Norwegians to sort out.

Eclipse travel were extremely helpful and patient in answering questions. My only reservation was the lack of explanation and assessment of suitability for the Amazon extension to my Sth American tour.

Almost all of our on ground experiences were excellent. Tour guides were excellent, ground transport was very good. Tours and places visited were interesting and guides went above and beyond what was required. Accommodation was great and all staff were welcoming and helpful. All the drivers were great too.
Having our own dual language astronomer for the eclipse tour made the whole experience exceptional. Dr Angel Lopez-Sanchez consistently worked to add to the experience. He enabled us to take photos of the eclipse and the night sky, set up extra stargazing times, answered all our questions and made a real effort to include the children in all activities.
Unfortunately the trip from Uyuni across the salt plains was not as well organised. The driver who met us at the airport seemed unsure whether we were the people he was picking up and where we were going. The tour group meeting us was late which was very worrying as we could not contact them .We had not been informed as to how much Bolivian money we needed or that we needed to provide most of our own drinking water. The guide was caring but was better as a driver than a guide. We often needed to question him to elicit information about the sights. (The accommodation; although basic; was clean, comfortable and the hostels were well run.)
The down side was air travel. Whether it was a problem with the original booking by eclipse travel or a problem with the LATAM booking system, every flight with LATAM had problems. We were put off one flight due to overbooking and it took them two hours to sort out the issue. Each time we checked in for a flight there was a problem with check-in. On some flights they could not seat us together. Despite the fact I paid in advance for specific seats for our return journey from South America to Australia, LATAM attempted to seat us six rows apart, and did not give me the window seat I requested.
The trip through Peru and Bolivia was amazing but exhausting and perhaps we should have taken a day’s break between each tour. Late flights meant we didn’t always get the afternoons off as programmed.

Excellent initial contact through internet site.
Great email correspondence to the point of paying.
Nearing the trip contact could of been made to confirm the process of boarding and meeting time without prompt.
A family size document folder would be a better option than the individual leather folders.
Overall a good experience.

My trip started from Namibia, across Botzwana and ended in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls. I would highly recommend Eclipse Travel for Africa. Organisation was excellent and lodges were all of a high standard. Our guide anticipated our every need and nothing was too much trouble. The drivers were extremely good and I felt safe the entire time.

Eclipse travel worked with its partners in Chile, Ecuador and Peru to organise the complicated itinerary we desired. Our Eclipse contact for planning was prompt and thorough.
During the trip there were no schedule glitches. The guides in Galapagos and in Peru were likeable, very well informed and efficient, and the airport transfers flawless. We needed to change our itinerary while in Peru and the company was flexible and timely.
This is the second Latin America trip we have taken with Eclipse and we would not hesitate to recommend the company to anyone interested in this part of the world.
Review by Dziros Olmsted4 months ago
The trip was very enjoyable, some of the local guides were better than others of course but all were punctual and very friendly and with one exception, the lodging was top drawer. The tours were all informative but I had to wade through too many markets. A couple would have been ok but I was not on this trip to shop, probably if I would have been more involved in what the plans were I could have changed the plan. More climbing around or museums would have been my preference, especially more time at museo Larco in Lima.

Can I give Luke Glenday and Eclipse Travel 10 stars??? For a start my initial email inquiry was addressed the very same day when he called me. We wanted to go to Ecuador and Peru and had about three weeks to spend. From that small amount of information Luke was able to prepare and co-ordinate a brilliant holiday for us. Luke listened carefully and wanted to understand us and then find tours that were amazing experiences and not just run-of-the-mill. We were not the easiest of clients either, fussing about dates, flights and accommodation. Nothing was ever a drama every single time I called, Luke was friendly and helpful with his first-hand knowledge of the destinations and tours. He is super organised and provided lots of pre-travel information to help us prepare. Our tours of Napo Wildlife Centre in the Amazon Jungle and the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu were exceptional and the guides were obviously the very best in the industry. It is obvious that Eclipse only use the best operators as each leg of our journey was smooth. We liked that they offer Eco-tourism and boutique style accommodation which is not only luxurious but mindful to the environment and the local community. TRAVEL TIP book airport transfers as part of your trip. Airports in South American are chaotic and no matter what happens at least you will be met by someone reliable, knowledgeable and honest to be taken to your destination. So yes! Definitely book your trip with Eclipse. We would use them again without hesitation.

Apart from the eclipse itself, which was truly awe-inspiring, Eclipse Travel added great value to our experience by arranging fabulous destinations, travel, accommodation and transfers while we were in Argentina. They responded promptly, accurately and enthusiastically to all our questions and requests, making sure that every detail was covered and we were satisfied. It was a memorable, successful and amazing trip thanks to Eclipse Travel. I would recommend this company most highly.
