Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We had a fantastic holiday. Everything was so well organised. There was someone to meet us at each location and we had a driver and a guide for just the two of us for every tour. The expedition cruise with Silversea was great as well with lots of activities and educational pieces and was so well organised."
Tribes Service: "We have been very pleased with our experience of booking with Tribes and the subsequent delivery of a fantastic holiday. We would have no hesitation in using Tribes again - we are already thinking about our next trip! - or recommending Tribes to friends or anyone who reads this."
Guides: "All our guides were excellent and gave us wonderful insights into the places we visited."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Average"
