A BIT MORE ABOUT US!
We had the wonderful pleasure of joining the travel group for the above trip. The team from Finisterra, Keri, Melissa made sure that all the details were covered, that you were prepared for each destination, weather, clothing needed and what was going to happen on each excursion and even had some very welcomed surprises planned. If there was anything that happened that was out of their control, they righted the situation so that you were more than pleased. The ladies made themselves available 24/7 and always wore a smile, were respectable and pleased everyone. This is a great company to travel with and have your plans made through. They will ensure you have the time of your life with many memories and education on where ever your travels may take you, Lori and Norm
If you are a teacher looking to take your kids on a trip, call Finisterra Travel. We just got back from a 10-day trip in Peru which included 5 days in the jungle, a visit to Machu Picchu, guided tours in the cities, and a bunch of delayed flights. Keri and Nicola from Finisterra handed it all beautifully. They are reliable, efficient, creative, and fun. The chaperones had very little to do! The kids had an enriching and fulfilling experience and we all were sad to say goodbye to Keri at the end of the trip. I cannot recommend this company more highly.
I have just returned from a wonderful Painting tour in Italy. Keri was awesome to have with us to arrange excursions and every other detail under the sun. While Nicola assisted my friend (who missed the plane) get to Italy from Vancouver the very next day – not an easy task. Can’t say enough good things about Finisterra Travel. Thank you Keri.
If you are looking for a fabulously planned school trip, then Finisterra is the tour organization to use! Keri of Finisterra developed an amazing 13 day Biology field trip to Ecuador which included touring Quito, and exploring the Galápagos Islands and the Ecuadorian Amazon. As a group of 18 students and two teachers, we enjoyed her expertise, enthusiasm and outgoing personality. Accompanying us, she dealt with all aspects of the travel, our meals, and our accommodations – which left us entirely free to enjoy the many sights and activities. We saw and heard a myriad of fantastic animals, birds, insects and fish. We explored, trekked, snorkelled, biked, boated, climbed above the canopy, and visited the Sani Community. The organization of all aspects of the trip was superb and our school will certainly have Keri and Finisterra plan future Biology trips for our students!
I have been using Nicola for a number of years for both business and vacation travel. For vacation travel, we like to travel independently and Nicola has been invaluable (and very patient) in sorting out optimum routes, flights and finding the best deals. She is a seasoned traveler herself and has always has good advice. I highly recommend Nicola and Finisterra travel.
Finisterra organized a trip to the Galapagos and Amazon for myself, another teacher, and 18 Biology students. It was the trip of a lifetime for everyone. This was my second time using them and it exceeded expectations again. Keri was the perfect guide – fun, knowledgeable, and she went out of her way to make the trip special for each student. They put together an unbelievable itinerary and made the planning very easy for the teachers. I plan to use them again!
We used Finisterra to book a custom trip to Peru — it was fantastic. Keri was very responsive and thoughtful when answering all of our questions and really created a trip for us that was nearly perfect in terms of content and pacing. The accommodations booked exceeded expectations in almost all cities. All of our multiple transfers, flights, trains and guides were highly organized with minimal hiccups. This was the most worry-free trip I’ve even taken. I’m already trying to decide where our next destination with Finisterra will be! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
I have never felt so looked after and pampered. Nicola and Keri took care of every detail, making the experience care-free and easy – and fantastically fun! Keri‘s positive energy is infectious and consistently calm, which is rare and valuable. I would recommend Finisterra to anyone for experience travel.
