Ecuador trip, Christian Perret (from Switzerland) - August 25, 2010
Everything was great, the cruise, the hotels, the sights. It was a great trip. Thanks for your help.
Ecuador trip, Brad Goodhart (from USA) - August 25, 2010
Thanks for all your help and reassurances.
The Athala was a beautiful vessel - spacious, comfortable and maintained spotlessly. The crew was very helpful and conscientious - helping unsteady clients into and out of the skiffs, assisting with fins, snorkles etc. Briefings of the next day`s activities were smoothly handled by Javier. He was knowledgable and had a great sense of humor.
I would certainly reccommend your services and the Athala to any friends who are considering a Galapagos cruise. The islands were fantastic - but I expected that, the crew and naturalist/guide made sure we enjoyed the experience to the fullest!
Peru trip, Edna Kalef (from Netherlands) - August 20, 2010
We had a wonderful time in Peru, learned so much about the culture,communicated with its friendly people, and enjoyed the nearly perfect arrangements that your supplier provided, as you had promised they would.
We would also like to thank you for providing us with twice the entrance tickets to Macchu Pichu, which indeed we used on our first and third day on the site. We were thus able to go with the guide to the city, and on the second time to enjoy the walks to the nearby peaks independently.
Finally, I would like to compliment Miravel, the guide we had in Arequipa and the Colca Canyon. She was knowledgeable, exceptionally gentle, helpful, considerate, and answered our numerous questions with unending patience. Please pass this on to her or her superiors.
We were generally very pleased with the trip, and if we decide to travel to Latin America again, or should any of our friends do so we shall certainly recommend Latin Discover and be assisted by the services you provided.
Thanks again for everything, best wishes
Costa Rica trip, Christoph Bartos (from UK) - August 19, 2010
Everything worked out just great with the rental car. We had a very small accident, but no harm done and all was ok.
Thank you very much for everything.
All the best,
Costa Rica trip, Steve Dugas (from USA) - August 12, 2010
We had a wonderful vacation, thanks to you. The rooms you selected were outstanding as to location and view. The room at the Arenal Manoa was superb. It provided privacy as well as an outstanding view of the volcano. I got pictures of the volcano venting steam and smoke on many different occasions.
The Buena Vista hotel also has a magnificent view. Also, the internet availability at both the Buena Vista and the Ocotal Beach resort were in the lobby only. It was really nice at the Arenal Manoa to sit on the patio of our room and share the view of the volcano on Skype!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tours you scheduled us for. I will definitely be contacting you again when we choose to come south again.
Peru trip, Richard Larison (from USA) - August 10, 2010
What a great vacation! You and your staff made this one of the best vacations ever. Every detail was looked after and managed with precision. I look forward to a return visit with my whole family.
Thanks for all your effort.
Peru trip, Susan Mullen (from USA) - July 26, 2010
We’re just getting caught up on our sleep after a fabulous 12 days in Peru! We had such an incredible trip, from start to finish. Your ground operator did an excellent job on their end, with very few snafus along the way. I’d be happy to give you any specific feedback regarding any leg of the trip; just let me know. The guides were for the most part really well trained, and the hotels super. We felt very spoiled in the high end ones, and rejoiced in the comfortable beds and beautiful atmosphere.
The culinary tour was a great way to end the trip; our guide Marta was incredible and we had a wonderful time with her. We then popped down to the Church of San Fransisco to visit the catacombs. Because we still had the whole day ahead of us and our daughter was feeling sick that day and needed to rest, we did end up having to pay another night at the Hotel El Carmel so she could have somewhere to sleep. But we had a great day and are home safe and sound!
Thank you for all that you did to make our trip wonderful. The itinerary was so well thought out, and we often thanked you for your planning. We did almost sink on the boat ride back from Taquile Island due to high winds, and ended up on the southern peninsula of the lake where we waited an hour in the middle of nowhere for a local bus to take us back to Puno. We got into town about 8 pm. On the 1 ½ hour ride back to Puno I had a great talk with a local family and their children, however, and we chalked it up to adventure. Only one German family had a complete nervous breakdown. C’est la vie.
We will definitely contact you for our future travel needs, as well as recommend you to our friends. You were attentive to our needs and very responsive to our emails. You are great at your job!
All the best,
Ecuador trip, Doreen Suchman (from USA) - July 26, 2010
I can`t begin to tell you how absolutely perfect the trip was. The guides were terrific. We spent most of the time with William who was a joy. I can`t tell you how much we enjoyed our time with him. We also had Carlos for Cuenca and Marta for Otavalo. They were all very knowledgeable and fun to be with. The hotels were charming and in beautiful areas. There were no problems with anything. My only regret is we did not plan enough time touring mainland Ecuador. It is a beautiful country with absolutely charming people.
Now to the Nemo II and the Galapagos. Wow, what a trip and what a place the Galapagos is. The crew we had on the Nemo II became like extended family members and our Guide Mariana Vera was a joy. As my daughter-in-law said - this was the trip of a lifetime!
If you ever need me for a reference for people considering using LatinDiscover and you as a travel agent, please feel free to give them my email address. I can`t say enough good things about the job you did helping plan this trip.
Peru trip, Johannes Van Wyk (from South Africa) - July 19, 2010
I just returned to South Africa a week ago. We found Peru a delightful country to travel in with of course the highlight being Machu Picchu.
Your arrangements went very well and we have no complaints. Thanks again for the part you played to make our trip worthwhile. I shall definitely recommend you to friends.

Central America trip, Samim Yilmazer (from Israel) - July 5, 2010
We have finished our tour and arrived to Istanbul a week ago. We want to thank you and your suplliers for the excellent organization of our trips, everything went very smoothly, guides were waiting for us at every spot, they were very correct and kind to us and everything happened on scheduled time.
The choice of places was excellent, as the Lake Atitlan, Solola, Chicicastenango, Barton Creek, Yaxha, Rio Dulce.. offered us unique experience. The hotel arrangements were very good ( D`Leyenda at Antigua, Table Rock jungle Lodge at Belize, Catamaran at Rio Dulce, Marina at Copan).
If I may add the excellent driver & guides: Carlos and Anastasia at Antigua-Atitlan-Guatemala City, José at Belize, Carlos at Yaxha and Flores. We were impressed by the prompt and friendly service that we have received every step of the way.
We were very satisfied and we will recommend Latin Discover and also you personally to our friends.
We hope to book your service in future for South America trips.
Thank you again,
Samim & Meral
Peru trip, Jaroslav Tosner (from Czech Republic) - June 23, 2010
The trip to Peru was excellent, hotels excellent, all arrangements made by your agency were perfect and precise. I had a fantastic Peruvian experience.
Many thanks to you, and in case of my repeated business trip to South America I will come back to you again.
Argentina trip, Tibor Kis (from Serbia) - June 15, 2010
We have finished our tour and arrived to Buenos Aires this evening, so I just want to thank you for the excellent organization of our trips, everything went very smoothly, guides were waiting for us at every spot (they were very correct and kind to us and everything happened on scheduled time), then, we did not experienced any problems with checking for flights. Also it was very convenient that every evening we have received a hard copy of the time table of activities for the next day. The choice of places was excellent, as the Iguazu waterfalls so the Perito Moreno are really beautiful and offered us unique experience. Hotels are very good (Saint George and Rochester as well). We were very satisfied and we will recommend LatinDiscover and also you personally to our friends. If I may add the excellent guides: Luis at Iguazu and Maria Julieta at Perito Moreno, they are really devoted to their jobs and most important is that they always adjusted activities to our needs.
Thank you again, Tibor
Peru trip, Renata Szczypiorski (from USA) - June 8, 2010
Good morning Mauricio,
I wanted to let you know that my clients had a wonderful time, and in their words, they clearly had nothing to complain about! She told me she can be a picky person, and you exceeded their expectation at every level. She was impressed by the prompt and friendly service that they received every step of the way! Thank you Mauricio for making a truly memorable experience for them and in turn making me look good! I will recommend you and your company at every opportunity!
thank you again!
"We were absolutely impressed by the way our trip was organized. There was not a one thing that we would want to change. I will call you tomorrow morning to tell you all about it." - Renata

Peru trip, Lawrence Ou (from USA) - June 7, 2010
Only the greatest things to say about you and your company! Everything worked out absolutely perfectly, even with the delay from the Ecuador volcano. Your representatives were there to assist every step of the way, and everything was arranged perfectly.
One of the best vacations we have ever taken, and Lisa and I will certainly recommend to family/friends (or for us if we go to other Latin American Destinations). Thanks for everything, and please let me know if you''''d like to ever direct a perspective client to me as a reference.
