      About this trip

      Few areas in the world possess a more mysterious pull than this tiny speck of land, - peppered with the most logic-defying statues on the planet – the strikingly familiar moai – Easter Island (Rapa Nui to its native Polynesian inhabitants) emanates a magnetic, mystical vibe.

      Easter Island is much more than an open-air museum. Diving, snorkeling and surfing are fabulous. On land, there's no better eco friendly way to experience the island's savage beauty than on foot, from a bike saddle or on horseback. But if all you want to do is recharge the batteries, a couple of superb expanses of white sand beaches beckon. Although Easter Island is world famous and visitors are on the increase, everything remains small and personable – it's all about ecotravel. (Lonely Planet)

      We begin our adventure in Santiago at the base of the Andes. Well known for its art and design, this metropolis provides an urban lifestyle in harmony with Chilean traditions. We get a flavor of the city and get to know each other at a group event on our first evening. A free day allows for tailor-made adventure, specifically for you...most difficult part is choosing what you want to do!

      Onto Easter Island to explore this UNESCO World Heritage site in the South Pacific Ocean - one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. The isolated island is some 2,300 miles from Chile’s west coast and 2,500 miles east of Tahiti - but a world all to itself.

      With excursions and activities already included, you are sure to get the most out of your time on this island. But don't fret, there is still time to rest, relax and soak in the tropical climate or add a few more activities to customize your visit to your particular interests.

      Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore this world-renowned destination few people will ever get to see!

      Hi! I’m Margo from Orlando.  I have spent most of my life helping people.  Whether it was as a Mom, a teacher, a friend or a Nanny to my grandkids.  I love people and I love to make special times for them.  I love the details that make a special time, a very special memory.

      I have traveled to six continents, and to 55 countries. Every place I have been has been special because I had stories to share when I got home. Stories about people, stories about new foods, and sounds that I heard.  Stories about nature, the colors and the unique flowers that I saw.  Travel turns you into a story teller.

      It was an amazing trip. Tricia is always available to answer questions and concerns. Our food was delicious, islands we visited were spectacular. Our accommodations were very comfortable. Thank you to the entire staff and Tricia for a wonderful adventure.

      The ship itself was an amazing experience. The food was excellent, the staff- attentive and all in all, it was a fantastic trip. Not for those who want Broadway shows on the sea, constant activities and big ship amenities but for those who prefer a more intimate experience, this is the trip!!!

      The Treasure Islands cruise on Star Flyer was a lot of fun. I love the cruise line and enjoyed all of our beach stops during the trip. We had a fun group of people and perfect weather. Tricia was available if anyone needed anything.

      This trip was wonderful. I was very impressed with the number of people who had taken prior trips with alt esc and really enjoyed the group and the whole trip. I’m allready on the waiting list for another trip. Tricia was great to travel with.

      I just got back from Alt-Esc Antartica trip aboard the UM Ushuaia. I loved it. Also loved the pre trip to Buenos Aires and Ushuaia. I’d like to stay in Ushuaia longer next time. WHAT a landscape!! Holy cow. The trip was well organized, I got exactly what I paid for. I’ve travelled A LOT and there are other groups that are disorganized, end up with out enough rooms, have too many people, are are a bit of a mess. Alt-Esc is organized and you get exactly what you pay for. I love it!! I’ve now done 3 trips and I’ve signed up for two more!! Thank you Alt-Esc. I work too much and your trips really recharge me!!
