      I worked with Angela from Amity organizing travel before and after my Trek cyling in the lake district. I had a fantastic time at Las Majadas which Angela recommended. The trip from pick up at airport, hotel food and excursions was seamless. The Tierra Patagonia was fantastic as well. Amazing location, excursions food and drink. Angela made herself availble to answer any questions i had and checked on me during my stay to make sure things were going well. I highly recommend working with Amity. BTW they were also logistics team on the Trek trip, they were fantastic.

      Great trip all around. Amity was extremely helpful with organizing and responding to questions. Thanks very much.

      Actually our tour was only 5 days due to COVID issues but Cristian was great in rearranging everything and super honest in giving us the difference between the cost for the 9 days and the cost for the 5 days. Cristian was the best possible organizer always available and ready to help and answer our questions. Hotels except for a hiccup the first night were great. Bicycles are amazing, the driver very professional and nice. The only downside of the trip was the guide on the bike that had evidently no experience and had no idea on what he was supposed to do. All in all I would strongly recommend Amity Tours
