in your words



Chile landscapes at sunset

Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to create inspirational and experiential trips for our clients, from an unforgettable eclipse adventure in Argentinian Patagonia to a private glamping experience at a remote cenote in the Yucatan Peninsular of Southern Mexico. And what better testament to this than to hear the kind words our travellers have to say about their experience, and our service.

Life changing

Franschhoek, South Africa
A remarkable honeymoon

It’s hard to put into words how remarkable, luxurious, exciting and life changing our honeymoon was, but I’ll try!

In South Africa, we traveled to Cape Town, Franschhoek, Madiwe and wine country to see the beautiful vineyards. We ended our South Africa leg with the game reserve – seeing lions, giraffes, elephants, etc. literally 6 feet away from the vehicle was a highlight. On our last three days, we enjoyed the beautiful Bengurru Island. Our room opened up right to the beach and gave us an unparalleled level of relaxation.

Safari & Beach

Beautiful coastline and beach on Zanzibar
Safari trip to Kenya and Zanzibar

My husband and I recently came back from a safari trip to Kenya and Zanzibar and we had an incredible time. From the moment we were met airside in Nairobi airport until our departure everything was curated perfectly and it really was the vacation of a lifetime. I couldn’t be happier with the service that we received from Black Tomato, they listened to what we wanted and and really exceeded our expectations. Aside from the amazing wildlife, all of the hotels and lodges knew our preferences and really made us feel like family. Thank you again and I cant wait until our next trip with you!

Dream come true

A blue doorway in Morocco
Black Tomato delivered

A dream come true. Rob not only listened to all our wishes for our Morocco trip, he actually made them come true. We explored the craziness of the souks, met with artisanal masters to learn metal working and perfume making. Enjoyed an expert shopper who took us through the mazes of the medina and even had a private cooking class in a Riad with two of the loviest women after our savvy guide took us shopping for all our ingredients. The best trip ever… from small Riads to a mountain fortress and a desert oasis- Black Tomato delivered.

Epic Chile

Atacama desert, Chile
The most incredible trip to Chile

We just had the most incredible trip to Chile thanks to Black Tomato. We hit the Atacama desert, Valparaiso, Chiloe, Patagonia, Easter Island, Santiago and the wine country. The trip was flawless, expertly crafted and everything went incredibly well. The lodges we selected were amazing. This was truly an epic trip and one of the best I’ve ever taken and I’ve done a lot of traveling. This was not my first travel with Black Tomato and they continued to craft and deliver a truly outstanding trip.

Dream Honeymoon

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Trip of a lifetime

We couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect honeymoon. From the moment we connected with Black Tomato, Christie created the perfect safari experience in Zimbabwe for us. It was organised down to the last detail, from the moment we arrived in Johannesburg for our connecting flight to Zimbabwe to the last day of the honeymoon in Victoria Falls. We went to four lodges in Zimbabwe, each was unique but the service across the board was exceptional.

It was the trip of a lifetime which we will never forget, and is definitely the first of many trips we will book through Black Tomato.

Wonderful Mexico

Tulum beach and ruins, Mexico
A bespoke travel experience

This was our first, but not last trip with Black Tomato. Our trip throughout Mexico allowed us to learn about the country’s rich historical, archeological, artistic, culinary, and geographic treasures. They ensured we had superb, yet intimate hotel accommodations, paired us with professional and engaging guides as well as a drivers, selected in depth and thrilling tours, and assisted with reservations at amazing restaurants. After 24 days, we left Mexico changed by the wonders we saw in the country and longing to return to discover more of this marvelous land!

Street musician in Cuba
An unforgettable trip

Black Tomato is the best travel service I have ever worked with and I have been around the world! My trip to Cuba was perfectly curated to include exactly the types of activities my husband and I are interested in. Rob not only took the time to “interview” me on our hopes for the trip but then iterated the trip several times through emails to hit just the right cadence and variety. We spent private time with dancers, artists, and musicians in addition to experiencing wonderful walking tours and hikes. The selection of boutique hotels and top level restaurants was spot on. Thank you Black Tomato for an unforgettable trip.

Romantic Italy

Tuscany at sunset
We couldn't be happier

My husband and I used Black Tomato for our honeymoon, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision! Our favorite part of the trip was the activities Luca coordinated for us, as we would have never found them on our own. We toured a lemon grove and made limoncello in Amalfi, went truffle hunting in the Tuscan countryside, toured wineries in Tuscany, had an amazing private cooking class in Florence, and took a private boat to Capri for a tour around the island. Everything was flawlessly organized and so easy for us, so we could just sit back and ENJOY our honeymoon without worrying about logistics. We will absolutely use Black Tomato again in the future!

Perfect Iceland

Green mountains and rivers in Iceland
Full of surprises

Black Tomato organised an incredible trip to Iceland for my husband and I. Was genuinely the best vacation we have taken. Attention to detail in the planning process was so good (for two people that usually plan every detail of their own trips) and we LOVED that they found some brilliant ways to surprise us on the trip. The secret experience arranged to see the inside of the dormant volcano is something we will never forget as well as the helicopter ride to explore the interior of the north of the island. From the guides to the hotel recommendations and little service touches – it was all perfect.

Borneo honeymoon

Corals and boats on blue water in Borneo
Adventure, animals and beach time

The most incredible trip ever! For our honeymoon we were seeking something a little adventurous teamed with animal spotting and time on a beach. Black Tomato showed their expertise, suggesting Borneo – a place we’d never have thought of and reeling us in with an exceptional itinerary. As well as being an utter joy to work with there were other little touches, I still wax lyrical about. Thank you, Black Tomato, for helping us plan the most exceptional of honeymoons – cannot recommend you enough!

Like Clockwork

Grapes on a vine in Chianti, Italy
Everything worked like clockwork

Alys, from Black Tomato, arranged such an amazing trip for our family. Everything worked like clockwork and we felt so cared for and looked after. The experiences Alys planned for us were all unforgettable and fun. We will never forget the bike ride thru Chianti and our visit to the olive oil farm / vineyard in Tuscany. All of the guides we met were warm and friendly and made our time in Italy so enriching and memorable. And the accommodations were perfectly located and very comfortable.

Get Lost

Morocco lanscapes
The epitome of bespoke

Black Tomato is the epitome of bespoke. Not only will your trip be 100% curated to you, you will never have a team more invested and caring about you as a person. My Get Lost trip was wild, beautiful, special, and challenging in all the ways I was hoping.

First class

Lake Como, Italy
Places you would never find

If you truly want a vacation that is hassle free and go to places you would never find, Use Black Tomato! It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Black Tomato arranged everything. They set up the boat tours on Lakes Como and Orta, hikes in the surrounding mountains, several wine and cheese tastings (the tasting in La Morra was done by the owner!) We truffle hunted in the Alba area, spent 3 days on the Italian riviera, and they even arranged for me to drive a vintage Alfa Romero for a day of touring. Truly a first class outfit, and highly recommended.
