I wholeheartedly recommend Danielle’s tours. She researches and prepares meticulously and is a wonderful host and travel partner.  She is tremendously caring and attentive as she is so personally engaged as a fellow traveler. Her guidance, organization, caring, effort and attention to all travellers made an amazing trip that much more special. It was like traveling with a friend, was greatly appreciated, and won’t be forgotten. I am looking forward to future trips with Danielle. ~ Erich Kirchener.  Calgary, Canada

Danielle is wonderful, caring and always has a smile and warm word. Just so blessed to have been a part of the adventure and would travel with her again. I can’t get the Ecuadorian Amazon out of my head and my heart. It was a very special experience – one of a kind. Many thanks for this amazing adventure. I loved it and there is more to come.  ~ Lynda Robertson. Victoria, Canada

My “bucket list “ trip with Danielle was fantastic! Danielle was the perfect tour guide! She has a passion for what she does, and takes her clients to places she loves. She has a caring, lovable personality. You will love her. She will email you right back when you have questions and never is bothered by your questions and concerns. It was my first trip with her, but am saving for another one. I have traveled with many tour companies and Original Routes is top notch.  ~ Sherry Ringer. Hawaii, USA

Wow!  What a magical trip. Thank you for your support. ~ Rick Paine. Washington, USA

My wife, Margaret, and I, along with our daughter and her partner had a wonderful trip with Danielle.  Everything was amazingly well organized. Even when there were minor deviations, which are a given when traveling in Latin America, she was able to quickly adjust so that everything turned out, probably better than it would have been before​. Danielle’s network was exceptional.  She had very informed guides, who were interesting and easy to get along with; she could find, or get someone else to find almost anything you might want. Danielle, herself, was not only a good Tour Lear but also was easy-going and became a friend in the course of the trip. Overall, she provided the type of experience we wanted, adjusted to individual preferences and really went out of the way to make sure everything worked smoothly and efficiently. We were well satisfied and recommend her highly.  ~ Joe Harding & Margaret Eisenhart.
