As we stepped off of our transport speed boat onto the steps of the Baros boat dock, it dawned on me that this would not be an ordinary escape to paradise. Being 37, I've made it my duty to travel to many locations. Throughout my travels I've become skilled in booking extraordinary locales. Some have been exotic and others more customary. Regardless of the location, I've made sure to not skip on the experience. So from the moment I happened upon the REMOTE LANDS website over a year ago, browsed the options, I knew that this would be well worth it! The entire staff is nothing less than professional with service that made us feel like royals.
Baros island, Maldives was breathtaking. We were fresh from our wedding in Negril, moving, etc. So we got much needed rest. It's a place where time ceases to exist. There's just sun up and sun down. The antithesis of schedules and deadlines. The island staff at Baros are so incredibly attentive and more than happy to take care of all needs. And the staff helped us correct a mistake by the airlines, and in the process helped to make us lifetime customers of REMOTE LANDS.
When we got to Dubai for the 2nd leg of our honeymoon, we were ready to see everything and have fun. Which we did. The city and desert tours that were included in our package went extremely well. The staff at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers were top notch. Our room overlooked the Burj.
Special thanks to Victoria, Trinity, Catherine, Jay, and all of the staff at Remote Lands. To Lisa and our house butler Naji at Baros. And our city tour guide Ibrahim. So many memories and such a wonderful experience. Can't wait to book the next exotic location. You've helped to make us the envy of our friends. Full stamp of approval.

The hotel selection and quality of service could not have been better. It was the best part of our trip. The rooms were amazing and we really appreciated all of the hotel’s gestures to commemorate our 7th anniversary. Remote Lands’ outstanding service is what made our trip wonderful. The Japanese guides were great. They showed experience and spoke Spanish very well. We are extremely happy with the service and quality of the trip. We really enjoyed traveling with Remote Lands and will definitely plan our future travels in Asia through your company.

Just got back from our trip to Uzbekistan. It was one of the best, most fascinating trips I've ever taken. Warm, friendly people, surprisingly good food and memorable sites. It's what real traveling is all about! Thank you for putting everything together for us. Our guide Gulya was the absolute best. So nice, so knowledgeable and an absolute delight! I can't say enough good things about her. Highly, highly recommended. It would not have been the same without her. Overall, it was everything we expected and then some. Remote Lands was great and I would definitely use your agency again for another trip.

Bhutan is a beautiful destination with very kind people. My wife and I travelled with our friends, and it was our first time to the Himalayan country. Remote Lands gave us an insider's visit to Bhutan by arranging for us to meet with several special people including an expert historian, the former Ambassador, and members of the Royal family. They were all very amazing and gave us different perspectives. We learned a lot about culture and history but also the current state of the country, its challenges, and its outlook. Our guide and driver were also great people and took care of us well. The trek to the top of Tiger's Nest was tough but an unforgettable experience.

Our itinerary to Yakushima island and lesser known areas on Shikoku and Kyushu islands is great for people who enjoy lots of walking and nature. The guides and drivers were very knowledgable about the areas and took care of us well. It was a great trip and we think many others also like going "off the beaten track". That is, after all, the promise of Remote Lands.
