Hola Laura,

Well, we are back from our amazing trip and I have to take a moment to tell you what a wonderful experience we had. I know I was ‘sweating’ the bottom line price, but now realize what it all entailed. Oceania was wonderful during the cruise portion of our trip and the hotels you chose in Argentina & Peru were fantastic! We were in the middle of everything. We very much enjoyed our Buenos Aires hotel and the walks around the area. The hotel we stayed at in Urubamba was beautiful, but frustrating as we were there for only a short while, would have liked to stay longer.  Your local tour operator in Peru was absolutely amazing. They were prompt, professional and made the trip much more special.  Thank you so much for being the ‘rock star’ travel agent you are and we have definitely recommended you to our friends and will continue to do so.

....until the next trip....

I just wanted to let you know that my trip was fantastic. Both companies provided great service, the guides always impress me immensely. I was very glad that I had pickup services at both Kathmandu and Kolkata as I arrived late and it was so good to not have to deal with getting to the hotel.

The hike to Everest Base Camp was great, the views were stunning, and I will certainly consider doing the Annapurna hike in the future. India was amazing, the people were wonderful, I never felt threatened, the hotels better than I had expected and the trains were quite comfortable. I certainly could go back to India as well, particularly to see Jaisalmer which was highly recommended.

Thank you for all the work you did in this and how well it all turned out.

Hi Laura!

We just want to extend our sincere gratitude for assisting us in all of the planning for our south-east Asia trip. It was AMAZING!!  Although we were a little sceptical (due mostly to the fact we have never heard of them), we highly recommend EVA airlines for travel. All of our flight schedules worked out perfectly!  Not experiencing Halong Bay in Vietnam due to bad weather was a disappointment, but we know that our tour guide did the utmost to try to make it work and the alternative trip to Ninh Binh was great.  The foodie trip through Thailand was interesting, to say the least. Our guide Soon was so informative about her country and attentive to our needs – she is one of the BEST!  We have returned home with MANY wonderful memories and now we are busy gleaning through our photos to create another travel book.

THANK-YOU, again Laura! We shall recommend you to our friends.

We have safely returned from our African Adventure and are very pleased with the package you set up for us.  There were several highlights and a few of my favourites were the elephant ride we did close to Victoria Falls, the walking safaris in the Okavanga Delta, having elephants right outside our tent, great seafood in Cape Town and Lemur Island at the Vakona Lodge in Madagascar.  Everything went smoothly - thank you so much for all your work.

I am back from my cycling trip through Cuba and adapting back to cold temperatures!  It was a great trip and a lot of fun.  This kind of tour was definitely the best way to experience the country.  A big thanks to you as well - many people I talked to used Canadian travel agents but had headaches with them, I was really quite delighted to share my great experience with you and I look forward to my next trip.
