You will find the following rating symbols for Tour Operators and accommodations throughout our website:
We have sourced these ratings for you from TripAdvisor and other leading platforms to validate that our partners are top-rated. Please note that many of our local partners are selling tours predominantly via international agencies rather than directly. Therefore, some of them do not yet have as many independent ratings in their own name as you will find for international brands.
In rare cases, there are no meaningful independent ratings for the above reason. When we have verified and curated such companies that we deem to deserve a 5-star rating (e.g. because their tours are 5-star rated when sold by other agencies), you will find “n.m.” instead of the number of reviews next to the rating symbol.
