Central America trip, Peter Cushing (from USA) - February 25, 2013
Hi Mauricio, Just a note to let you know that we were very pleased with the tour you designed and the execution of it. Everyone was anxious to make sure that we were satisfied. We spent about the amount of time that we wanted in each location.Honduras is not as interesting as the other two, except for Copan which was great. The guide and driver in Nicaragua were the best of all. We did have our game of golf although it was somewhat difficult to get finances settled with the course.. The flight back was fine and on time. Overall,we had a good time and would recommend your company to any friends who want to visit central America.
I second everything my dad said - all guides were good with Erick Martinez in Nicaragua being the standout. Luckily we had the most time with him. Having been very impressed with Copan and Chichen Itza I am anxious to see Tikal. I have no idea when that will be but I will keep you in mind when I get around to that trip!

It is my pleasant duty to inform you that all your arrangements performed perfectly, the guides were very knowledgeable and we were also very lucky with the the weather throughout (4 weeks) our South America tour.
On behalf of the group, many many thanks and best wishes for prosperous future and good health.
Brazil trip, Clement H (from Guyana) - February 1, 2013
I have a great trip.
First of all, you have done a good job, despite my last minutes request, you manage to fit me in. Also you keep follow up and keep all info posted to me.
Secondly, the local tour guide is also providing a good service. She is knowledgeable and friendly, we enjoy her care and guide.
Overall the trip was excellent, I will go for your company service for my next trip and also introduce my friend.
Thanks again, Clement
Peru trip, Adrian Davis (from USA) - January 28, 2013
The trip was absolutely fantastic - far exceeding our expectations. Your contacts could not have been more helpful and professional. Everyone was polite and extremely attentive. The guide at Machu Picchu - Darwin - was probably the most knowledgeable guide I have ever encountered, with a true love and passion for the place and appreciation of Inca culture.
Lake Sandoval was a true find - and another magnificent, unforgettable experience. Overall, it was a trip Mati and I will never forget. He is already pushing me to plan other trips to South America - all of which you will of course be involved in.
Thank you again for planning such an extraordinarily educational and awe inspiring visit to Peru. We are deeply grateful.
Peru trip, Anne Salonen (from Finland) - January 15, 2013
I had fabulous time in Peru. Everything went very well. All the hotels were better than I thought and very cosy and breakfasts were tasty. Hotel staff was very helpful in every hotel. Tour guides knew much about places they told about. Flights, buses and trains were on time. It was very nice to see different landscapes and climates from Iquitos to Titicaca lake. In Maldonado walking tour in the jungle in the dark as well as boat trip on the river in the evening seeing for instance caymans in the dark was very interesting.
South America trip, Carol Lind (from USA) - January 9, 2013
Dan and I are home following our wonderful trip to Patagonia. We really enjoyed the hotels you chose especially in El Calafate. After backpacking, the luxurious bathroom at Quijote was an unexpected treat. The staff was very helpful, and we were able to walk to great restaurants.
We appreciate your help with all of the arrangements. It was comforting to have all your contact information even though we didn''t need to use it.
Thank you for helping Dan put together a memorable trip.
Peru trip, Karen Lawson (from Canada) - January 2, 2013
The trip was amazing. We have never used a tour company before, preferring to travel on our own. However, we knew that with 2 young teenagers, we needed a confirmed itinerary and some action packed days! And that is exactly what we got.
The itinerary was the perfect blend of activity and more sedate tours. Everything worked like clockwork. The guides and Latin Discover representatives were always on time, and some went even so far as to contact us by telephone the night before a big day to confirm pick up times, etc. Everyone was very knowledgeable, and happy to joke around with us, so it didn''''t seem so much like a "tour", but a day out with a friend!
The white-water rafting was a highlight for our kids, and we appreciated the fact that the company changed the location of the trip to ensure our safety, even though it meant a 2 hour drive to the river instead of the planned 10 minutes.
Of course we loved the Hiram Bingham train, the Sanctuary, and our time at Machu Picchu. The climb up Huyna Picchu was also well worth it - although certainly almost pushing our limits!! ;)
The hotels were all comfortable, clean, and had great staff. We always felt safe and comfortable. The drivers were good, the guides were fun, and Peru was spectacular. We hope to be back one day.
Thank you, Mauricio, for assisting with our trip. Our only regret is that we didn''''t get to meet you! I will send you a few pics so you can see the fun we had.
Chile trip, Paul Broussard (from USA) - December 10, 2012
We just got back home yesterday afternoon. The trip was wonderful! We did so much in the 3 weeks we were in South America. The wedding was a real experience. I can call it an extravaganza! Everything went very well. We were very pleased with all your efforts for our trip. The Hertz rentals went just as planned, the hotels were excellent, and our guide in Santiago was terrific. We got to be good friends with him and he might come over to visit the USA and stop by to see us.
Thank you and LatinDiscover!
Costa Rica trip, Seth Swallow (from USA) - November 30, 2012
Sterling job as always!!!!!!!
It has been a pleasure working with you for almost ten years now in our second home Costa Rica.
Chile trip, Sebastian Pusch (from Germany) - November 27, 2012
how are you ?
All the pick up services were perfect, all were on time, so I cant complain about that.
The accommodation Cuernos is good and I liked the hotel Torres del Paine a lot....you can easily recommend the hotel to anyone.
After Torres del Paine I did the cruise! You were right ...it was awesome well worth each dollar! The best of my trip, I just loved each single day on the boat and staff were so nice.....incredible.
Tierra del Fuego was nice, but I think I stayed there one day too much......the hotel was really good!
Then I went to El Chalten...the hotel is nice. Fitz Roy was wonderful...I was lucky with the weather ..sunshine!
Calafate was really cool...I liked the Perito Moreno Glacier...really impressive and the mini trekking was cool. The hotel is perfect...I loved it a lot. But maybe it is for some people important to know that it takes about 10 up to 15 minutes by taxi to reach the city centre...I mean for example if you want to go out....for me this was not a problem.
The hotel in Buenos Aires was awesome....highly recommended!
Thanks again for your great job!
All the best
Argentina trip, Nia Brown (from USA) - November 20, 2012
As usual, we were very satisfied with Latin Discover efforts on our behalf.
Argentina trip, Helga Wadler (from Austrian) - October 26, 2012
Our trip was wonderful, really!. I would like to thank you for arranging it so perferctly. The guides, hotels, trips - all was not only how expected but even better!!! We felt very well guided and safe during the whole vacation.
Thanks again, you really did a great job!
Brazil trip, Craig Foss (from USA) - October 15, 2012
Our adventure in Brazil was fantastic. We are well seasoned world travelers. Usually there are at least a couple glitches in an itinerary as varied and ambitious as the one you carefully organized for us. However, everything ran smoothly and seamlessly. All of the transfers and connections worked perfectly and were on time. The guides were knowledgeable and affable. The lodging was comfortable and often full of local color. The itinerary was definitely one that would not lead to boredom, but we still had a nice amount of free time to rest or enjoy the area on our own.
This is the second vacation we have booked through Latin Discover and we intend to book a third trip in a couple years time.
Sandra, I want to again personally thank you for organizing this wonderful adventure for us.
Peru trip, Eric Speck (from USA) - October 15, 2012
My clients were very happy with all of the arrangements. Guides and transportation and hotels and guides were all 1st rate, spoiling them with attention.
Everything went smoothly, and everyone particularly enjoyed the Hiram Bingham, the Inca Trail hike(s) and the Sacred Valley hotel.
Thank you so much for all of your work to make the trip a success.
Peru trip, Carlos Hernandez (from USA) - October 15, 2012
Our group and I would like to thank you for working with us in coordinating this amazing trip to Peru and Bolivia.
It was an enjoyable and awe inspiring journey that we will all remember for a lifetime. You, Latin Discover as well as your agents abroad were spot-on in all our travels and I can’t say enough good things about them, they were very professional, attentive, timely and very accommodating to all of our needs.
Bravo to you and all of them. Again thanks for everything you and your agents are very highly recommended.
Regards and until our next adventure. Carlos/Arthur/Dino/Tim/Chandler and Mike.
