Reviews

For the most part, everything Ker & Downey did for our trip was outstanding! The accommodations were incredible, the people we encountered at each stop were definitely an asset to the trip, and the travel arrangements were efficient and flawless! While there were a few little things we would have tweaked, the trip ran very smoothly and we had a fantastic experience. While we asked a gazillion questions, there were a few things that we didn't know to anticipate and might have benefited from a little more upfront instruction or knowledge but the overall experience was 5 star!

Ker and Downey is a great agency to use for international travel. We had a great experience with this company, and their connections in South America were courteous and hospitable. I would highly recommend using KD if you are traveling to a new place, and are needing assistance with transportation and tours!
