      About this trip

      Few places on the globe evoke the mystery and awe that Patagonia provides for the intrepid traveler. The rugged crags and spires of mighty Torres del Paines and Los Glacieres National Parks constitute perhaps the most impressive mountain vistas on earth. Iguazu is arguably the world’s most impressive waterfall. Combine these with the cultural gems and Tango culture of Buenos Aires and one has a recipe for a memorable travel experience.

      We at Imprint Tours believe travel broadens horizons, introduces new ways to see the world, equips us with a new frame of reference for evaluating our own society, breaks down prejudice, and promotes global understanding. Therefore, we endeavor to “Travel with Intent”: an intention to take a reflective, introspective approach; connect with the cultures we visit; and balance the enjoyment of discovery with responsible travel. We want our “imprint” on the planet to be light and our “imprint” on the local culture to be positive.


      A wonderful trip all around! A nice-sized group (10 in all), fantastic activities, and a good look at Thailand from multiple perspectives--culture, history, and natural wonders. Sarah and Ant were excellent leaders and worked together seamlessly. I wish there had been more time for the south of Thailand - I wanted much more than three days in the islands, and I'll probably be back one of these days to explore them further.

      This trip was another cultural immersion. We learned a lot about the people of Vietnam, their spirituality, gentle nature, sense of community, and happiness. This is a country that has a bright future and a winning attitude. The food is unbelievably good whether from the street or a restaurant. My wife and I truly enjoyed this experience and look forward to more adventures with Imprint.

      It was a great adventure. We loved our local guide, Bon, who was very informative and his personal stories added to the cultural experience.

      This was our first tour with Imprint Tours, and it will not be our last. We joined this tour at the last minute, after the group had an unexpected opening. This was Imprints first tour back in Vietnam after the Covid shutdown. We found the tour guide, and leaders to be exceptionally organized, detailed oriented, flexible, with a great grasp of logistics for this tour. Thier objective was to expose us to as much as possible within the time period, including historical, religious, monuments, and natural scenery. While a schedule was maintained, when extra time appeared, they were quick to fill with local experiences that left lasting impressions. This tour included a fair amount of walking over various terrains, climbing in and out of small boats, and lots of stairs. Those with mobility issues should be aware this is an active tour that requires the above abilities. Our local guide was exceptional, highly knowledgeable, and entertaining.

      They itinerary was great and I enjoyed the people and food of Thailand. Our local guide, Ant, was devoted to the group. Our main guide, however, spent little time and effort on our tour. Daily schedules, if created at all, were sent via What's App during breakfast. She seemed to have a lot of personal issues and spent most of our time together taking videos to promote her travel business or planning new travel offerings rather than spending time in the moment educating the group about Thailand and its culture. As a result I heard more about her ex-employer, ex-husband, and strategies for her boyfriend to fight child support to his ex-wife than I heard about Thailand from this guide. She also seemed to have health issues and opted out of activities at both the beginning and end of our tour. My understanding from friends is that this is not typical of Imprint tours. I think it was just an issue with the guide.
