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

Argentina trip, Helga Wadler (from Austrian) - October 26, 2012

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.

Peru trip, Lucia Aandahl (from USA) - October 5, 2012
Muy Estimado Mauricio,
El viaje a Perú fue inolvidable! Muchas gracias por haber hecho los planes tan cuidadosamente. Los servicios a recogernos fueron puntuales y corteses. Nos hicieron sentir que les importaba que todo saliera bien.
Los hoteles fueron muy cómodos y limpios, los empleados corteses y al pendiente de que todo estuviese perfecto, así como también los servicios que ofrecieron tales como la clase de hacer ceviche y pisco sour.
Muy impresionada con el profesionalismo de todos los guías, muy en especial de David, el que nos dio el tour de Machu Picchu, sin quitar nada de los otros guías. La Fueron siete días de mucho ajetreo físico y mental, pues llegaban a recogernos a las 6:30 A.M. y pasamos casi todo el día visitando lugares y aprendiendo mucho. De todas formas tengo que repetir que disfruté todo porque todo fue planeado a la perfección. También hicimos amistades que parecen muy buenas, y ojala las podamos volver a ver algún día.
Me hubiese gustado conocerle en persona, pero basta decirle que su nombre estará en mi lista de recomendaciones para el futuro.
Muchas gracias, Mil, mil gracias.
¡Con gran afecto!
Costa Rica trip, Kevin Mullins (from USA) - September 27, 2012

Latin America trip, Jaroslaw Wieckowski (from Polans) - September 26, 2012

Peru trip, Lucia Aandahl (from USA) - September 25, 2012
Es usted un planeador unico! Todo salio muy bien. Las personas que usted escogio para ofrecernos su ayuda se portaron maravillosamente en todo momento. Desde quien nos recogio en el aeropuerto hasta el chofer y el guia que nos llevaron al aeropuerto en Juliaca.
Los hoteles y la comida seran de recordar por mucho tiempo. Me volvi una aficionada de la comida Peruana... Quiero escribirle en mas detalle, pero baste decirle que le recomendare a usted y a su agencia a todas mis amistades. Estoy tratando de contestar todo lo que pueda de e-mails (mas de 160) y Gracias a Dios que muchos son de tirar sin leer. Usted y Joyce (mi colega de viaje) son muy buenos para hacer planes de viaje. Deberian de abrir su propia agencia...
Salud, dinero y amor!
Peru trip, Joyce Martinez (from USA) - September 24, 2012
Sacaste A+++. Todavia no llego a casa. Me encuentro en Cartagena en una conferencia, pero todo el cansancio valio la pena. Nos gusto los grupos pequenos y la calidad de los hoteles. Mil gracias. Seguro que te recomendamos a todos nuestros amigos.
