Eva in customer service and Diego in sales are phenomenal. Response times to emails at Bamba is unparalleled. You feel like a friend, who is genuinely interested in your having a good experience, is helping you plan your trip. The included activities are just the things you'd schedule on your own with the convenience of having someone else plan them... More

My friend and I Spent four weeks traveling from Cancun down to Panama City. The Bamba trip was very useful for us as we knew that we could get guaranteed travel for the days that we wanted (On a very tight schedule). The travel booked for us seemed to be the best quality shuttle buses available where the longer transfers... More

Did a 3 day 2 night trek from Sundarjal to Dhulikhel with Base Camp Adventure Treks and had the most amazing experience. I walked with only my guide Rajendra which actually made the experience more enjoyable as I was able to experience Nepali culture and people personally, and was not treated as a tourist but as a friend. The walks... More

And waking up to the sight of the peaks of the Himalayas and Everest must have been a very unique experience.

We did a trip through South East Asia, covering Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and it was a truly amazing experience! The "Happiness Team" was really helpful and really friendly during our entire trip, even with many of our silly questions. Whenever we emailed they would reply straight away, putting as at easy and making our trip so stress free.... More

We did a 4 day / 3 night Machu Picchu tour via the Jungle Trek and this included hostel stays, 3 course meals, mountain biking, walking, minibuses, the visit to Machu Picchu and the guide. Rafting, zip lining and hot springs were optional. We all really enjoyed it - the group was a nice small number (6), our guide Edgar... More

We took the 4d/3n tour and it was amazing! The trek is a bit hard - especially 2nd day as it is up hill - but overall it is amazing. All the views along the way are outstanding and when you reach Machu Picchu - WOW what a sight. No wonder why it's one of the wonders of the world.... More

Dear Zana, Thank you for posting such a positive review. It is so great to hear that you found the trip to be amazing. We do agree that the sight of the Inca ruins is breathtaking. The trek can be a challenge, especially due to the altitude. But hopefully this just makes the experience when you reach the top even... More

Bamba were brilliant on our trip round Asia, so helpful and always very quick to reply to emails! Each journey to our next destination was organised without any issues - once or twice a bus was full but Bamba always offered an alternative solution so it was never a big problem. The tours were amazing, well organised and run with... More

I had an excellent experience with Bamba, who offered the best value trip that we could find. Taking part in the classic Inca Trail (May 2014) was a breathtaking experience that I will never forget. Admittedly the Inca Trail is an expensive trip, but Bamba offered it at the best price that we could find and I didn't feel as... More
