We have a 22 years old son with autism. Everyone went out of their way to see to our needs. We did not expect him to have so much food he would eat since he is extremely picky. We are very grateful for all the service and attention received.

Serendipity truly takes adventure to a whole new level. You are in a class all of your own that
is beyond comparable to other agencies. The guides, the equipment, food, vehicles, EVERYTHING was
beyond perfect. Felipe truly added to our vacation and we will never forget him. He is a true asset
to Serendipity! All our guides and adventure staff were absolutely perfect, which really made this
trip 5 star.

Thank you for making this family occasion so special. We wanted to do an adventure together- this was perfect! It showed my husband and me that all those years of teaching about pushing the boys into the outdoors has rendered positive results!

Our guide was fantastic, we felt everything was unique and unlikely to have experienced without Serendipity. We will definitely recommend you to our Friends. We had an outstanding overall experience.

Everything was better than we could have imagined. The head guide and the rest of the staff were superb. Never had a single fear about safety. The food was delicious! I don’t know how it could have possibly been better than it was.
