Peru trip, Djaja Asikin (from Indonesia) - June 3, 2010
Hi Mauricio,
Finally, we returned home safely after stop over for a few days in Japan.
We enjoyed our tour in Peru very much, however the altitude sickness caused us some discomfort, to which our bodies were not used to.

We will contact you again if we decide to visit other south America destination in the near future. Thank you.
Kind regards,
Djaja
Costa Rica trip, Joyce Feinberg (from USA) - June 2, 2010
Hi Mauricio,

I thought you did an excellent job.

We loved Lapa Rios really a lovely place excellent staff, great food, good guides all around super experience.

Britannia this hotel is okay, the staff is not very helpful or well trained, It was okay, good location, but I wouldn''''t choose it again. Breakfast  very mediocre.

Si como no okay, but really middle of the road. Rooms are comfortable, not lovely, food is expensive and not outstanding, but location is good.

Bosque de Chachagua: we really enjoyed it we spent some time with the owner which was interesting. It needs a remodeling, which they are going to do this year closing for 3 months. it has a great charm. They are considering AC and TVs as some people won''''t come without them.

We went zip lining in La Fortuna with Ecoglide, they were great. The drivers were all fine The driver from Arenal to San Jose was not a good driver but all were nice and the rest were good and knowledgeable.

We had a great time and thank you for all your help especially when we ran into the problem with immigration papers and missed the plane.That drive turned out to be nice 6 hours exactly from airport to P. Jimenez where the hotel driver was waiting for us Thanks!!

We did our part for the economy of Costa Rica...loved the Gallery Namu in San Jose and also liked La Casona for shopping.

Many thanks,
Joyce

Chile trip, A. W (from USA) - April 26, 2010
Dear Laura,
 
The tour guide and driver were friendly, accomodating, and timely. The guide spoke english very well. The main sights, the museum, the salt lake, the geyser, the moon valley, and the archeology sites were great to see. The airport transfers worked great and the tour guide helped us check in for our flight too. We enjoyed our time in Atacama and hope to return to Chile again in the future.  
Thank you for making the arrangements for us and for answering our questions promptly. It was a pleasure working with you.
 
Regards,

Ecuador trip, Patrick G (from USA) - April 12, 2010
Hello Mauricio and good day!
 
I´m sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you with regard to our trip to Ecuador and the galapagos Islands. We simply had a marvelous time. The trip went much further beyond our expectations and proved to be a truly enjoyable and unique experience. The excursion was a complete success and I thank you so very much for putting so much hard work into the planning. Every aspect  and detail of the itinerary was well planned and went off without a hitch. 
 
Our local guide, Alberto, was a very knowledgeable person and showed us every consideration while escorting us to the various destinations and attractions. He was invaluable and very much appreciated. In fact, all of the people we met were extremely pleasant and cheerful. The help and services of all of the people at the hotels, transportation, guides, etc were so very thoughtful and dependable. It was quite a good staff of local representatives. 
 
The accommodations were all quite pleasant, too. The only thing I will mention is the Amarillo room at the Red Mangrove on Santa Cruz was not a very cozy room. It was literally in the mangrove which made it very dark on the inside since there was no sunlight or view from the windows. Regardless, the hotel itself was very nice and the people were great! Everyone was so very kind.
 
Chris was able to swim with the sea lions on one occasion and I did on two, but we never saw any sharks. Apparently, the water was particularly warm this time of the year. Besides that, the wildlife was interesting and we were giving some very good lessons regarding the geological and zoological history of the islands which was fascinating to know and be able to see, too.
 
All in all, the trip was great and I am glad to have made such a journey. I thank you so very much for your efforts and hope to do some more planning with you in the future. I can think of several more place to go in which your company specialized. Lately, I have missed being in the jungle, so I may begin to look into a trip for sometime in late November to go up into the Amazon, Pantanal and savannah areas of central Brazil. Do you ever handle any excursions into these regions?
 
Sincerely,
Patrick Gaffney

Hi Mauricio,

Everything has beeen perfect! The hotels and guides are prompt, courteous and helpful. We added canyoning after the caves yesterday and loved both!

Argentina trip, Gillian Bogush (from UK) - April 7, 2010
Hi Laura,
I am now in Sao Paulo and wanted to send you a little note to thank you so much for the wonderful trip you arranged for me. It was magical and I will always remember it. I will tell all my friends and family that they must visit Argentina and particularly the north west region.
All the guides I had, Jorge, Marcelo, Maria and Diego, were great and spoke good English. The excursions were excellent and very informative.
The hotel in Salta, Legado Mitico, was fabulous. One of the nicest I have ever stayed in in all my years of travelling and staying in excellent hotels. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. I would suggest you offer this hotel as it was a lovely experience.
Kind regards
Gillian
