Jenny Calvert, USA (Wildlife Safari)

Jenny travelled to EcoCamp in November to do a Patagonia Wildlife Safari. Read all about her experience here on her blog post Torres del Paine - Not the Truman show

"As we were entering Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Chile, I commented to Kristie -something to the effect of – this reminds me of the Truman Show; I’m not sure it’s real. And after leaving, I’m still not sure it was all real. I’m going to have to go back someday to make sure, because if any place deserves to be added to the list of places to which I’d like to return someday, this is one."

Scott H. McGurrin, USA (Santiago, Valparaiso, Atacama & Patagonia Wildlife Safari)

We're back home and I just wanted to say thanks to you for helping us to set up a wonderful trip!  We're very tired, but we had a fantastic time everyplace we went.  Ecocamp in particular was an amazing experience - the views and the animals are simply incredible, and the staff are really a great bunch of folks!

We'd like to add a big thanks to Scott for supplying us with INCREDIBLE photos of a puma spotted at the eastern end of Lake Nordenskjold. What an amazing treat for him and his Safari group!

Dick and Chloe Dalton, USA (Wildlife Safari)

Our EcoCamp experience was clearly the highlight of our 10 day Patagonia visit and one of the best of our many years of international travel. We loved everything about EcoCamp, even though we had one day of mostly heavy rain. We want to give Corinne Nanzer and her staff the highest praise possible. They were superb in every way: Cheerful, helpful, hardworking, friendly, polity, funny, punctual...and so much more. Corinne's management is outstanding and her quiet, effective leadership set an excellent example the staff enthusiastically followed. 

Our dome suite was wonderfully clean with firewood arriving daily in a timely manner. The food was excellent and professionally presented and served. The guides, especially Rafael, were extremely knowledgeable, patient and very conscious of everyone's interest and safety. And becasue the staff's collective attitude and service were first class, the guests were also cheerful and happy. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We'll never forget it.

Toni Chaplin, Australia (W Trek & Los Glaciares/Fitz Roy)
Arrived home last night after fabulous holiday.  We had good weather in Torres del Paine and fabulous clear skies in Mt Fitzroy area so we were very lucky. 
Everything went very smoothly and i must compliment you and your team for the faultless service that we received.  Every transfer was on time,  every flight met and all the services provided very efficiently.
It really was a terrific experience and despite some complicated transfers crossing borders etc, it was all handled very professionally. 
So thank you for all of your efforts before the trip in helping to arrange such a comprehensive itinerary and then for the smooth arrangements during the trip.  
Superior domes at Ecocamp were a highlight - we loved listening to the pouring rain at night while in such cosy surroundings.
 
Compliments to all concerned.

Judy Newhoff, USA (9 Day Torres del Paine Circuit)
Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I feel for having the honor to see the wonders of Patagonia.  My daughter, Brooke, and I were rewarded every single day of our trek with breathtaking views and spectacular scenery.  Our guides, Christian and Luis, were skilled and personable and kept us entertained as we covered the miles each day.  We appreciated their humor as it distracted us from the labor of the long walks !  They were exceptionally well informed and we felt we were in expert hands the whole time. 
The hotels you reserved for us were charming and comfortable and staffed with exceptionally helpful people.  No request for assistance was ever refused and was always granted graciously.  For a weary traveller, this is really an appreciated gift!   
The Patagonia trip was one that Brooke and I had planned for and anticipated for a long time.  I feared that with all the lead-up, our expectations may have been unreasonably high.  But I have to say, all of those expectations were not only met, but exceeded.  The memories of this trek will remain among the fondest of all of our travel experiences.
I can't thank you enough for the part you played in this.  Please convey my thanks to Barbara as well.  Sincerely, Judy

Molly Allison, USA (Standard Dome)

Overall, my experience was wonderful. The facilities were a perfect mix between comfortable and unusual. It was clear that the EcoCamp is as devoted to a sustainable presence as it claims. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I felt welcomed by them. The location was unbeatable, with excellent hiking nearby. By the end of my stay, I didn't want to leave; I'm hoping to return again someday with my family.

Lee Larson, USA (7 day W Trek)
Cascada is a great company.  We did the 7 day trek over the famed "W", staying most nights at the Ecocamp.  Every arrangement for this trip; transportation, lodging, guides, food, etc. was flawless.  We can't say enough good about Cascada and the accommodations and food at Ecocamp are first rate in every respect.  Fernanda, our reservations contact, was very responsive and helpful, and working out the logistics was very easy.
 
Sending best regards,
Lee
