Costa Rica trip, Raymond Lewis (from USA) - September 21, 2009
Hola Mauricio-
 
Christian at Adobe took very good care of us...he walked us through the process from the point he picked us up at the airport to the point he handed us the keys and said ''have fun''...then greeted us warmly and with a smile upon our return to his office two weeks later to dropped off a very dusty car.
 
We certainly took mainly of the ''roads less traveled'' but always knew where we were with the guidance of the GPS. to my surprise driving certainly takes much longer (often twice as long) than we had anticipated to travel from point to point...through driving ourselves provided us the opportunity to take so many more roads and see so many more sights.

Thank you again for your last minute help and guidance!

Peru trip, Brandon Aden (from USA) - September 7, 2009
Hello Mauricio,
 
The trip was perfect.  Despite my flight delay, I could not have asked for a better vacation.  The people, the food and the sites were all incredible.  I only wish I had more time to spend in Peru.  I will most definately be making a return trip as there are plenty of sites I would still like to see.  Thank you for all your help and I will definately contact you when I plan my next vacation to South America.  
 
Thank you,
Brandon

Peru trip, Viktor Broczko - September 3, 2009
Hi Mauricio,
 
I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you''ve done. Everything went according to plan and I''ve been 100% satisfied :)
 
It''s been a hard going and have been extremely busy in terms of sightseeing and doing some business, but it''s been well worth it. It''s not over yet fortunately. Cuba was one of my stops amongst many on this trip, but Peru had the greatest emphasis, by far. I climbed Wayna Picchu yesterday, so I can barely walk today, but it''s been a great success!
 
I''m also glad that some London-earned money found its way to Costa Rica in this globalised world, because your offer was more competitive and this is the way it should be. For many it''d be unbelievable that we exchanged about 10 messages and the deal was done, which included a complex, taylor-made trip (some said it''d be impossible to do)... and we did it. I can confirm it now. I wish I could have time to use your website better. It''s really good.
 
So, yes, well done! 10 out of 10! I will definitely recommend you to my friends in London. Thanks again for the great work.
 
Best regards, 
Viktor

Peru trip, Viktor Broczkó (from Hungary) - August 21, 2009
I am very grateful for all the work you've done, Mauricio. I have been rushing you a bit, because I do things last minute, but it all went well. I am really happy with all the things you've arranged. Thanks for all the work and looking forward to be in Peru.
 
Best regards and have a nice weekend,
Viktor
Peru trip, Jennifer K (from USA) - August 19, 2009
Hi Laura,

We`re back safe and sound and really loved our trip. We were so impressed with how well organized and coordinated the tour was. Our guides were wonderful, really nice, helpful and knowledgeable. Everything really was great. all of our hotels were nice. The one in Cusco, the Eco Inn, was exceptional and we loved being there. All in all, our accomodations, hotel, flights, buses, trains, were really well organized and nice. It was such a hassle-free trip.

We always knew when and where and how we could reach a guide. We always knew what the next day would look like. Our guides took great care to make sure we got from point to point without a glitch. It was really impressive! Peru was so beautiful and we really loved it.

Thank you again for all of your assistance, Laura. It was a really wonderful trip and I`d be happy to recommend Latin Discover to any other client.
Ecuador trip, David V (from Israel) - August 3, 2009

Ecuador trip, Vivien P (from Netherlands) - July 9, 2009
Hello Laura,
 
We had a great trip on board of the Odyssey. Our experience on the Galapagos was very good. The boat was great. good spacious cabins with great big bathroom, good service and very nice staff.  Program was very diverse and very busy. The first two days were the best for us. All in all we had a great time!
 
Your service has been excellent though!
 
kind regards,
Jarl & Vivien
Peru trip, Richard Stevenson (from USA) - June 26, 2009
Mauricio,

I have sat on this to let the afterglow of the trip fade so I can be as objective as possible. The bottom line is you did a wonderful job and the trip exceeded our expectations.

Nasca and Machu Picchu were astounding. Our guide in Cusco and Machu Picchu , Carlos, did a marvelous job of bring the Incas back to life for us. His insight and love of these places helped us really learn instead of just viewing. Our guide in Lima, Betty, helped us gain insights into the history and politics of this great city and the country of Peru. Well done!

Hotels:
-I wish we had more time at the Sol y Luna. Great location, food and accommodations.

-The Inka Terra, the nights get a bit cool in those hills. Otherwise it was beautiful.

-The Picoaga had a great staff and ambiance. Once they have completed their renovations the place will be superb.

-The Jose Antonio staff made our stay enjoyable. Good location for those of us who fell in love with the Rosa Nautica!!!

The food at all the hotels was excellent and plentiful and the planned lunches were very good. Your suppliers in Lima did very well in working around the farmers strike and made the issue pretty transparent.

The flight connections went very well and the leg room was really appreciated on the long hauls. 

My thanks to you for being there to put this trip together for us both.

Belize trip, Laurie McCann (from USA) - June 25, 2009
Hi Mauricio,
 
We are back in full swing at work and really missing being in Belize. 
 
Our flight arrangements worked out wonderfully. Everyone was very helpful and on time. The flights were smooth as well as the landings. 
 
Thank-you for making that leg of our trip so nice.

Peru trip, Jane Starret (from USA) - June 25, 2009
Hello Mauricio,
 
The trip was amazing and all the arrangements flowed perfectly. The Mountain Lodges of Peru tour guide, Leo, was outstanding in his commitment to his culture and in sharing that with us. The trekking was a bit difficult for me at first as I was still recovering but I managed to make it over all the passes and enjoy the landscape along the way. The lodges and especially the food can´t be beat! My only regret is that I wasn´t able to stay in Peru longer as there were many other places I would have liked to visit. So maybe there is another trip in my future!
 
I´ve enjoyed working with you and will definitely look you up in the future and refer anyone else interested in South American travel. You might also like to know that others who booked their tours through REI and another agency seemed to have trouble with the Cusco hotel reservations, train times, etc. So thanks again for your excellent service, and for making the trip go smoothly.

Belize trip, Donna Filion (from USA) - June 9, 2009
We really enjoyed our stay at the Chateau Caribbean. The building is definitely old but has a lot of history so is fine that way.

It is a gem as far as restaurants go. Our travel mates went down the street to the Raddisson for a meal and said it was awful but we loved all the food at the Chateau.

The ladies even gave me a list of ingredients for the local favorite: Stewed Beans. I have made it several times and is part of the wonderful memories I have of the hotel. We would defiately go back if we need to stay in Belize City again. Thanks for your booking assistance.
Ecuador trip, Rose B (from Latvia) - June 5, 2009
We were very happy about everything you organized for our trip!!! Somebody met us at the airport with our boarding tickets and trip information. Our guide on Galapagos was very knowledgeable and organized, the ship was amazing: rooms were clean and spacious, food was DIVINE!

The hotel in Puerto Ayora was ok, we didn't spend much time there so can't tell you much.
So thank you again soso much for everything! We had a great time and ill def recommend your organization to my friends who planning to go to Galapagos! Take care.
Argentina trip, Kerry H (from Australia) - May 29, 2009
We enjoyed our trip very much. Both hotels were fine, the parks were stunning and our guide, Aldo Vega, was wonderful.

Day 2 was very long and rushed. We would have liked to spend more time in the moon valley park - we didn't get to look at the museum - because we knew that we had to get to the other park and then drive all the way back to San Juan. As it was we didn't get back until about 10.30 that night - a long day particularly for our guide who did all the driving. I don't know if it is possible, but I'd recommend doing one park each day, and then a more leisurely trip back to San Juan.

We would happily recommend the tour.
Chile trip, Bernd L (from USA) - May 12, 2009
Everything went well though the weather was not very cooperative on the trip so we were unable to do many of the things we had hoped to do in the second half of the trip. The room we had in Pucon was the best out of all of them. When we picked up the car in Temuco they gave us all the paperwork for taking the car across the border and the infomation package was excellent. They had made an error in the paperwork by having the incorrect year for the return date for the car to cross the border. The paperwork would have expired before our return date from Argentina. A person working for Hertz drove to our hotel in Pucon from Temuco to give us the correct paperwork which we are very appreciative of. This would have presented a major problem for us. 
The hotel in Puerto Varas was excellent as well.

In San Martin the room overlooked the parking lot in the back of the Hotel and the room was sparten at best. The hotel lobby and entrance was very nice. In Bariloche I would recommend not staying in town at the Edelweis but along the lake as you originally tried to book us. I had received some input from a friend to stay in town which proved not to be the best choice.

 
Overall the trip worked out for us and we would recommend it to anyone else. The country is beautiful to see.
Belize trip, Cindy Harris (from USA) - May 11, 2009
Things went well - thanks for arranging the flight with the Lamanai trip (was a great trip)- we would not have liked that long boat ride to Belize City!!

Thanks so much!
Cindy
