Hi Holly!
I am back home and had a WONDERFUL trip. Thank you for all your help. We especially enjoyed the Rio Serano Lodge. Perfect for us. Not too fancy, the excursions were wonderful lead by fantastic guides, food very good, great staff. I do wish we had had enough time in El Calafate to see the Moreno glacier. Also, Hotel Mil810 was just OK. Wish there had been more of a restaurant, bar and common room as the rooms were a bit small. Wifi was difficult there. I originally had been given a room where the bed headboard shared a wall with the elevator. I asked to have a different and room and they gladly changed it for me. That was good. Staff very friendly for the most part. The driving service in Ushuaia was FANTASTIC! My daughter discovered that she could not find her passport as we were driving to the airport to depart. UGGGHHH! The driver and woman guide were super. They took us back to the hotel to look again and when we could not find it, went back to the hotel (we paid them for this part of the drive and were happy to do so) and she went into the airport with us and ran around like crazy trying to get my daughter on the flight after talking to the airport police. We made it just in time. Really good service!

Thank you again and I would (and already have) recommend your company for travel to South America.

Take care,

Jennifer

Hi Holly

We had a great trip and thanks for all the organising, it all went very smoothly!

Tierra Atacama was great. The Puna experience was amazing scenery, it is quite a rugged trip and by necessity there is a lot of travelling in 4 wheel drives. The scenery is amazing and the company charming, thoroughly recommended.

Finca Valentina is a beautiful haven of tranquility, both before and after a puna trip.

The museum in Salta and the central square are well worth a visit.

Dos Lunas was also excellent, staff food accommodation and tranquility - all top of the game.

La Faena was great. as usual the tango show was good and the hotel bar really lively.

All round an excellent trip in all aspects.

I will be going back to travel south and will be very pleased to do buisness with you again.

Thanks Angus

Our thanks to the South America Specialists for helping plan the holiday of a lifetime; from planning the incredible itinerary to arriving safely home, despite the unexpected obstacles along the way. Lost luggage, a diverted flight, an airport strike and an earthquake were no match for the team as they took care of everything and ensured we had a fantastic and relaxing time every step of the way.

Bests,

Hi Nick,

I wanted to drop you a line to say what an amazing time Kate and I had. Rio was good fun but we absolutely fell in love with Argentina.

All of the arrangements you put in place worked well and the local agents were spot on with timingswhich gives great confidence.

The hotels were a good standard and we particularly loved the Nuss and Club Tapiz and most of all La Bamba. We were looked after very ,very well by all of the hotel staff but La Bamba made us feel like VIPS!

A big thank you from two happy customers.

Best wishes

Hi Nick,
A week back from our 3 1/2 week trip to Brazil & Argentina. You asked for our comments. In summary, the trip was very successful with no significant problems. Just one question - see below.

All the airport pickups were faultless, and all the hotels were fine. All the seat-in-bus tours were good to excellent, and on time except for one, where there may have been a slight mis-communication. We were lucky with the weather.

The only other thing I feel you could have emphasised is that in Argentina it pays to have (a lot of) US dollars to pay in cash - don't use a card unless you have to - saves you 20%!

Just to be clear, we had a VERY good time, and found the Argentinians a most hospitable people.

That's about it,
Regards,
John and Ann

Hi Nick,

Hope you are well.

Andrew and I have just returned from out trip to Argentina and Brazil.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising everything. We didn’t have any issues whatsoever during the trip.

The hotels were great and staff really nice too! We had an amazing time, however the 9 flights during the 2 weeks got the better of us. LOADS of turbulence to and from Argentina / Brazil!.

Will definitely get in touch when we are planning our next trip and will recommend you guys too. It has been a real pleasure!

Thanks again for a wonderful trip!

Thanks, Tania

Hey Nick,

We had a great trip, your local agents on the ground were very good and transfers were there waiting for us with a sign so made life very easy. Domestic flights were also very good.

Hopefully this is useful. Regarding areas.

SALTA region – would love to go back. Found out there is so much to do in the region, we could barely touch the surface. Tough for us to do given we only had limited time, but very impressed and would recommend.

Mendoza – as an area didn’t really stack up vs say SA winelands (take Franschoek). Maybe we didn’t see enough (were limited with a baby + Finca Adalgisa was so nice didn’t travel around so much) but my impression is I’d happily cut out Mendoza and do more time in Cafayate. Had lunch at Club Tapiz which was very good. The service at dinner at Francis Mallmann 1884 was disappointing (first drink arrived after we’d finished our starter which must be some sort of sin in wine country)!

The Lakes – lived up to high expectations. Beautiful setting, lovely weather when we were there. Would happily spend more days on a boat on the lakes.

Buenos Aires – great city, also lived up to high expectations. If it wasn’t for the 14hr flight we’d be going back for a long weekend this year I’m sure. J

I hope this helps, Caroline feel free to add anything if you like.

Regards,

Jonny

Hi Nick,

we are just back from our wonderful trip to Argentina. The journey was everything we hoped for and the service and hotels were great.

A trip full of highlights, BA ( buzz, food …),El Calafate( Perito Moreno), glacierclimbing in el Chalten, good wine in Mendoza and the Falls of course.

But also small mercies, drivers who where always on time, check in at the Nuss hotel with the room all ready at 7AM after a 14 hour flight etc …

I must admit that in the beginning it was a bit strange to arrange everything through the internet from Belgium, but it worked out fine so if anyone from Belgium wants to book with you, just give our names as a reference.

Thanks again and if we ever feel like going back, you can arrange it again

We had an amazing time and really thought the combination of city, mountains, glacier and beach were an incredible way to enjoy our honeymoon. Such an incredible experience!
