Belize trip, Curt F (from USA) - July 16, 2008
The arrangements & flights were on time and the staff very professional and friendly. The little runway at Belize Municipal was '' a hoot''. Enjoyed our visit and hope to return to the area after we have seen other parts of the world.
Peru trip, Adam R (from USA) - July 1, 2008
Mauricio, Julie and I had a wonderful time in Peru. We were very pleased with your choice of hotels. We can't wait to go back to South America! We will be in touch with you for sure before we plan our next trip to South America.
Thanks again for your great service Adam
Peru trip, Umaji C (from India) - June 30, 2008
Hello, I was initially a little apprehensive about having booked a holiday for all of us with an agency that was randomly picked from thousands on the internet. Also everybody I spoke to was warning me with horror stories of how things can and do go wrong. So I was continuously expecting something or the other to go wrong, but nothing happened.
Everything, and I mean everything went off so smoothly, that (pleasantly) shocked all of us, and in the bargain has done wonders to my family’s perception of my ability to organize things.
Mauricio, your guides took care of the small things (like having a smiling, friendly face meeting you in a far away country, organizing transportation, telling jokes, recommending restaurants, helping with check in and check out, and for my sister recommending shops, etc) so well and so professionally we were put at ease right away. We particularly liked the way the following people took care of us, the lady and driver we met in Quito.
Our guide and the entire crew of Sagitta. The lady we met at Guayaquil, who pointed us to a fantastic restaurant. The gent who met us at Cusco airport, the lady who took us to the Sacred Valley, and the private guide at Machu Picchu. I thought, and I think all of us will agree, these people more than the quality of hotels and flights made our holiday for us.
What can I say about our hotels they were all fantastic bar none. I am glad you recommended these hotels, it made the journey that much more comfortable. Doing both Galapagos and Machu Picchu in such short a time was probably a mistake. It meant going up to 3,000 meters to sea level, up to 3,000 meters, and back to sea level again, in such a short time may not have been such a good idea.
Mauricio, thank you for organizing everything, and I am sure now that we have discovered South America, we’ll want to do more things in that continent. I am sure you’ll be hearing from me in the near future. Thank you again Umaji
Peru trip, Colin G (from UK) - June 23, 2008
The whole trip was absolutely superb. All arrangements were handled in a professional manner and both transport and hotels were of the highest standard for the level booked.
The guides all knew their areas and gave excellent service from when we all arrived until the time we left Peru. I cannot praise you organisation enough and I pass on our thanks from all our party and would have no hesitation in recommending you to other. Indeed I have passed on the trip details to quite a few people.
Peru trip, Marleah M (from USA) - June 17, 2008
We had a FABULOUS time. We enjoyed Peru so much. All your help was very much appreciated. To start with, I''m so glad we stayed right at the Lima airport the first evening. It was very comfortable...nothing fancy...but clean and oh so convenient.
Our transfers went very well. The Machu Picchu Pueblo Inn was our favorite place to stay. Our favorite lunch was at the Hacienda in the Sacred Valley. We loved the floating Uros Islands on Lake Titicaca. Didn''t mind the long bus ride from Cusco to Puno as it was very comfortable and we had 5 stops.
One thing we didn''t anticipate was how cold everything would be, so we were glad to return to Houston and warm up! In fact, we woke up our last morning in Puno and found snow on the grownd. When we arrived at the airport, our flight was canceled due to the snow. Fortunately, we were able to find seats on the late afternoon flight. You really worked with us on this challenge in getting us back to Puno and to our hotel where we waited until the afternoon. Then, we were transferred back to the airport.
We had thought we would entirely miss our tour of Lima, but the guides picked us up and gave us an evening "lights" tour.....just driving around....which we thoroughly enjoyed. I know I have rambled on.....sorry.....but I thought you might like a few details....as you know, I''m into the details!
Thanks so much, Mauricio, for taking care of all the planning to make this a very memorable trip. There were so many people involved in different cities, that it''s amazing how well it all came together.

Costa Rica trip, Rebecca Finnigan (from UK) - June 11, 2008
Sandra, Our time in Costa Rica was absolutely fantastic!
1. Your Service- wonderful! You have been great, thanks for all your help in organising the trip.
2. The Places- we loved everywhere we visited. Tortugero, Arenal, MonteVerde and Manuel Antonio were all fantastic. We liked Tamarindo a little less than the other places because there was not much to do, but we enjoyed a relaxing few days here and had a surfing lesson.
3. The hotels were all lovely and the staff were very friendly- particularly at Issimo Suites. The food at Jardin Del Eden was very nice.
4. The transfers were all very punctual and we were very impressed.
5. Excursions- all the excursions you organsied were great. We also organised our own canopy tour and night walk at Monte Verde and white water rafting in Manuel Antonio.
Our honeymoon has been wonderful- Costa Rica is such a beautiful country! All the people are so friendly and proud of their country, the food was really good too. I shall definitely recommend you to any of our friends who want to come to Latin America!
Thanks for all your help and - PURA VIDA! Becky F.

We had a wonderful time. The Tropic air flight was an adventure . We missed the hurricane by one day. We will keep you in mind when we come back.
Costa Rica trip, Kenneth Landsberg (from UK) - May 29, 2008
Sandra, The whole holiday was very enjoyable and great fun. There wasn't a problem of any sort all the way through despite such a complex itinerary. I think the balance of activities was perfect - though it meant serious exercise most days ! So all in all it was a very good holiday and your organisation and service have been excellent.
Many thanks for all your work and making my stay so much fun !
With best regards Ken

Argentina trip, Reijo Raisanen (from Finland) - May 19, 2008
Hello! The trip was fine and all itineraries were just in time. Hotels were just suitable for us. Private transportation was excellent and during those trips was a good chance to see landscape of Patagonia. We saw many animals beside the road also. And the guide (Monica) was very helpful in BA - thank her for that. So kind person. So, we are very pleased..... Yours, Reijo PS: and the cruise was excellent - I just couldn't get enough to watch the scenery there! Weather was good and we were able to embark Cape Horn also.
