Chile trip, Wojciech Kisielnicki (from Poland) - February 28, 2011
Dear Laura:

Everything went smoothly. We found Don Thomas Hotel as very convenient and San Pedro is a charming place to stay. All trips went as per the agreed program and we enjoyed it very much.

Let me once again thank you very much for your support.

Kind regards,
Wojtek
Argentina trip, Brigitte Momose (from Japan) - February 14, 2011
Hi Laura,
We really enjoyed our trip and I want to thank you for arranging everything so well. All the guides and drivers were on time all the time. The hotels in Mendoza, Bariloche and El Calafate were excellent. In Bariloche and El Calafate we had great views from our room.
If we ever go back to Latin America we will definitely ask for your services and I also will recommend you and your company to anybody who wants to travel to this part of the world.
THANKS again,
Brigitte
Costa Rica trip, William Lindsey (from USA) - February 14, 2011
Mauricio -
 
I just met a neighbor in the post office, who had been in Belize this time last year. In exchanging news and catching up on life I told him about your organization and travel assistance. He left with a gleam in his eye, heading for his computer!
 
We had an excellent vacation, and appreciate all your assistance in setting it up - especially as we were asking for last minute reservations and arrangements. We enjoyed all our accommodations, which gave us a very nice range and different styles, from the Volcano Lodge (beautiful and luxorious) to the Tres Banderas (intimate and friendly). And we very much appreciated your prompt response to a change in plan when our selected hotel was unexpectedly out of business - the alternative was equally acceptable.

We also were very glad to have your celular number assistance in negotiating the streets of San Jose when trying to find our hotel on the final day.
 
I would recommend, without hesitation, the services of your company to anyone who was looking to visit Costa Rica and travel to different regions, but did not want to take a group tour. For us, this self drive was a perfect compromise bteween totally independent travel and the restrictions of some pre-determined itinerary.
 
With many thanks and best wishes.

Belize trip, Vicki Saxon (from USA) - February 10, 2011
Mauricio;

I just wanted to thank you so much for your planning and suggestions for our recent Belize vacation. Belize is a beautiful country. The driver we had on the mainland, Bob, was excellent. Ramon''s on Ambergris Caye was absolutely amazing - we are so glad that you suggested it.  
 
Thank you again for the wonderful vacation. We will remember you for any future trips to Central America.

Peru trip, James Hume (from Dubai) - February 9, 2011
Mauricio:
We had a simply marvelous time and couldnt fault any aspect of the trip.

Right from the start, the booking process was efficient, prompt and we were kept well informed. The hotels were, without exception, of much higher quality than we expected and indeed, matched any global standard.

We remarked several times on the seamless way that a number of different guides interacted with us - we were never left wondering what would happen next. They were happy, well-informed, highly educated people and enthusiastic people and looked after us carefully.

Peru has prioritized tourism and it shows. The schedule was a little daunting - trying to see everything that Peru has to offer in only nine days does not allow for much leisure. However, once we had adjusted to the lower oxygen levels in the high Andes (a couple of days of slight headaches and some dizziness) we became accustomed to early starts and enjoyed the wide variety of sights and experiences.

Peru has so much to offer - historical, geographical and social - we highly recommend it! Value-wise, the price we paid was a bargain.


Kind regards and many thanks for your assistance.
James and Massy Hume

They are very professional and can tailor any tour to your needs.We are well travelled and have to say that it was one of the best organised trips we have ever taken.The booking process was made easy by the quick response from Mauricio from the very first enquiry through to the finished booking.We enjoyed every aspect of the tour,the hotels were outstanding.
Peru trip, Norma Stoddard (from USA) - February 8, 2011
Hi Mauricio,
 
We returned from South America a few days ago after a wonderful trip. After Peru we spent several days in Santiago, Chile before taking a 2 week cruise from Valpariaso around Cape Horn to Buenos Aires. We stayed in BA a few days before flying home as well.
 
Everything you planned for us was fantastic. Our guides and other contact people were super - very professional, friendly, knowledgable and helpful. In over 40 years of extensive travel, Wilfredo, our guide at Machu Picchu, was the best guide we have ever encountered. The hotels were also great.  
 
I''''ll also be sure to contact you for help with any clients and/or friends who are interested in travel in South America. Thanks very much for everything.
 
All the best,
Norma

Ecuador trip, Nicole Puzsar (from Austria) - January 21, 2011
Hi Laura!
The trip I booked went very fine. Everything happend like we arranged it: The flight tickets waited for us in our hotel, someone waited for us at the airport in San Cristobal - even though our plane was late - the 2 islands-trips per day were well organised and of course very interesting. And also our 2 days on our own were perfect.

The land trips were very well organised by the crew and the naturalist guide. I really liked the briefing and the white board with our day`s schedule. Everybody was nice and friendly. We had 5 varied days - with a good combination of walking, snorkeling, listening to interesting facts and other activities in freetime.

The long trip to Galapagos was definetly worth it!
Thank you for your help arranging this unforgetable trip!

Best regards,
Nicole
Argentina trip, Joanne Gardner (from USA) - January 17, 2011

I had a wonderful trip to Iguazu. The hotel St George was well located for restaurants and some shopping. The falls are amazing in themselves and the guia Gustavo was very good with me as the only non-Spanish speaker in the group. I did the boat ride which was amazing and should be suggested to anyone going there if they are physically able to do the climbing. The transfers were perfect, right on time. Thanks for your good help and I will use your company in the future for my clients. Joanne Gardner. (The Travel Specialist)

Ecuador trip, Jamie Witsen (from USA) - January 17, 2011
My client absolutely loved every thing. She is so happy that she now wants to try to get a group of her students together to go during the summer. Thank you for all of your help. Laura C (Omega Travel)
Peru trip, Peter Szanto (from Canada) - January 17, 2011
Dear Mauricio,
 
This was not my 1st travel, not even my 21st, but it was certainly one of the best. We were expecting a lot from this trip and were not dissapointed. It is very easy to ruin the whole trip with carelessness.
 
However, this time, everything worked to perfection, like a clock. From choosing the itinerary, and the hotels to choosing the guides, we were looked after 24/7 and all that with a PR that could be taught (all this in a complex itinerary).

All guides were knowledgeable, courtious and spoke English. We stayed in 3 star hotels and they were all great, I would rate them 4 star.
 
Mauricio, you work quietly, but you are effective and pleasant. It is appreciated.
 
I would be more than happy to answer questions from potential travellers.

Guatemala trip, Anahita Tamboli (from USA) - January 10, 2011
Hello Mauricio,

Thank you very much for organizing a wonderful trip to Guatemala for our family. The whole trip was very well performed, from airport pickups, hotel pickups and drop-offs.



The guides and drivers were very professional and knowledgeable. All the hotels were good especially in Antigua. Our driver Edgar and our guides Umberto & Julio were fantastic. Extremely concerned about our well being.

The home stay with the family was good also. They were very hospitable and accommodating. Thank you Mauricio for a great rip to Guatemala.

We will remember Christmas 2010.

With Warm Wishes,
Dr Hoshedar & Anahita Tamboli & Family
