The Importance of Vetting Partners for Your Benefit


Embarking on adventures to exotic places around the world is exhilarating, but the intricacies of complex travel can quickly become overwhelming. While it’s conceivable to chart your own course, should you? 

“The value of working with vetted partners lies in their deep understanding of destinations, accommodations, and experiences,” says Molly Mathis, founder of MOJO Adventures. 

“When clients inquire about a destination, the first question they ask is invariably, “Have you been there?” With confidence, I can usually say yes, and proceed to plan their travel with a vetted partner I have first-hand experience with.”

From determining the optimal season to visit and circumventing seasonal crowds to tricky transportation planning, great partners serve as invaluable allies.

 “I just experienced this first-hand on my recent trip to Machu Picchu, where my travel partner helped navigate the complex logistics to ensure I didn’t miss a moment,” says Molly.

Here’s a great example: There are several ways to get to Machu Picchu from Cusco: 

  • You can hike the 4-day Inca trail.
  • Travel by scenic train. 
  • Or combine a full-day hike (Short Inca trail) and train travel.

Now, layer on the need for timed entry tickets into Machu Picchu along with a bus schedule and you’ll quickly realize the need for a local expert who can advise and often accompany you on this bucket list journey.

Whether it’s rearranging your schedule due to weather issues or accommodating last-minute requests, our partners go above and beyond to ensure your experience is seamless. Unlocking the mysteries of this legendary destination requires more than a mere desire to wander—it demands local expertise.

“When I take time to unlock a new destination like Peru and the Amazon, or Cuba (stay tuned for more on this!) I do it on behalf of my clients to advise with confidence and make solid recommendations knowing there’s an exceptional partner on the ground,” says Molly.
