Peru trip, Denise V (from UK) - January 15, 2010
Hi Mauricio,

Deposit all done for our November trip to Peru. Thank you so much. May I say you have made this part so easy for me. You are super efficient.

Go ahead and confirm the flights (Lima / Cusco / Lima). You are the first agent to give me the benefit of a reduction. I will certainly recommend you on my travels.

Best wishes

Chile trip, Annika S (from Sweden) - January 14, 2010
Dearest Laura,

I would first of all like to wish you a Happy New Year.

Then even more importantly, on behalf of Alessio and myself, I would like to THANK YOU very much for your service and all your assistance in booking our trip to Easter Island and Chile. Very professional and extremely detailed.

It was an unforgettable trip!!! A lot of it due to the fact that it was all so well organized and everything was pre-booked. We really didn`t have to worry about anything. Wonderful!

Valentina was a great guide and help in Santiago and we really felt she was there for us. She was very willing to assist and had many good tips about Chile and our visit there. The drivers were also very kind and helpful and the car comfortable.

On our wine tour we aslo had a very good experience. Only the map wasn`t as detailed as one whould have wishes. The stay at Las Majadas de Colchagua was in particular nice and unforgettable. The whole area has so much to offer and is so very interesting. Santa Cruz for example, a great place.

We would at no time hesitate to recomend Latin Discover for any bookings to Chile. Very Professional! We will be back when we are planning our next trip to Latin America.

Thank you once again Laura.

Wishing you all the best for the future.
Kind regards,
Annika
Chile trip, Donald A (from Canada) - January 13, 2010
Hi Laura,
We had a wonderful two weeks in Chile, thoroughly enjoying the different landscapes, and situations. We also found the Chilean people very friendly and hospitable, always eager to assist confused Canadian tourists if they could.
 
Our tours in Chile were also most interesting, and well organized. We were also impressed with the quality of the accommodation, incuding our hotel in Bariloche. 
 
We aslo fully enjoyed the Santiago/Valpariso- Viña der Mar region.
Thanks again for your assistance,
Best wishes, Don
Panama trip, Alicia Ludin (from USA) - January 11, 2010
Hi Mauricio, 

I just wanted to let you know I had a great time on my past day visit to panama. I have visited the sights before so the purpose of my trip was to shop and have a good lunch before going back to the airport. The woman that picked me up, her name escapes me at the moment, was incredibly nice. She helped me practice my Spanish and was also someone who I had spent the day with on a previous trip so she remember some of the things I had told her in the past. She was very kind and took me to a great place for lunch and showed me the best stores to shop in. Overall I had a great, relaxing trip. 

Thanks so much for taking care of my arrangements!
Sincerely, 
Alicia 
Peru trip, Edward H (from USA) - December 28, 2009
Hi Mauricio,

I returned from Peru earlier today (Dec 25th). The trip you arranged for me went very smoothly. At each connection I was met by someone to handle the next step, and there were no delays and no problems. The guide I had at Machu PIcchu was VERY good, the best of the different guides for the different days. The scheduling of time to have almost a full day at Machu Picchu, followed by another half day, was perfect, offering ample time for the guided part of the visit and time to explore on my own, as well as the opportunity to experience the site under a variety of weather ranging from light rain to full sun, with fog and clouds in between. I would have been very disappointed to have spent only a few hours there, as many tours apparently do.

The hotels were fine, and the one in Yucay was a delight with its gardens and its quiet setting--a very pleasant break from the traffic and activity in Lima and Cusco. And its restaurant was very good, the best of the three hotels. I enjoyed both the city tour of Cusco on the first day, and the chance to wander around on my own on the morning of the last day.

My friends in LIma reviewed my itinerary before I set out, and said that the logistics to take the train back only to Ollantaytambo and then drive from there to Cusco were a sign of a very good tour planner, because of how long it takes to get back all the way to Cusco by train.

The only change I would make would be to the day visiting Pisac and Ollantaytambo. The Pisac stop was really just for shopping, and it did not interest me. And we really did not have enough time to explore the ruins at Ollantaytambo. The guide spoke at length and the time on our own felt rushed. My friends had hoped that I would get to view the site at Moray and the salt making site, and I saw the sign for the former on the way back from Ollantaytambo to Cusco (a different road than the one through Pisac. So, if I were to change anything, it would be to visit those two sites on the way to Ollantaytambo instead of visiting Pisac, and then have more time at Ollantaytambo. But this reflects my preferences, and I know some people prefer shopping.

Anyway, it was a great trip, and I will recommend both Peru and Latin Discover to people interested in a visit. I have not checked your website in detail. What other countries in Latin America do you offer tours in?

I hope you and your family had a merry Christmas. Best wishes to you for the new year.

Peru trip, Lois Feinstein (from USA) - December 22, 2009
Our last minute trip to Peru was fantastic. Mauricio planned our itinerary less than a week before we left and everything worked out perfectly. We were always met by friendly guides and drivers who whisked us to our hotels (which were all wonderful). Our guided tours of Cusco, Machu Picchu and Lima could not have been better and the meals Mauricio arranged were superb.

I can’t think of anything he could have done better and it was especially amazing that he accomplished it all in about 3 hours.  Muchas gracias, and we’ll definitely use him again when we return to South America!

Latin America trip, Attila Kishonti (from Hungary) - December 15, 2009
Thank you for your letter, Unfortunately we are already home, we arrived yesterday.
 
We are absolutely glad, all of the programs were very interesting and we got what we expected, the whole group was very pleased.

The guide in Belize was exceptionally friendly and nice! We had the opportunity to taste the local traditional dishes, which were interesting.

I think that all of the interesting sights was shown, and we got the maximum that we could.
 
Thanks again for Your kindness, help and support.

And also a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You and to Your family!

Peru trip, Chris Turner (from USA) - December 4, 2009
Mauricio,

Thank you so much for setting up such a great trip.  Your staff was incredible--everyone was on time, professional and so helpful.  The hotels were all great, the tours were great, the staff was great.  I can''''t compliment you enough....this really was THE trip of a lifetime. 

As Becky (my travel agent) told you......going to Machu Picchu has been a lifelong dream of my Moms....and this trip was a birthday/retirement present for her.  My mom has bad feet and has problems walking for long periods of time....your guide for Machu Picchu spend at least two extra hours taking us through the grounds and explaining everything to her--allowing us to stop and rest (more than usual) and this really was special for my mom.

So I just want to thank you again for everything.  Please let me know when you''''ll be in San Diego to visit your sister--I would love to thank you in person.

Take Care,

Chris
