I meant to send this e-mail last week, but coming right
back to work and then Easter prevented me for doing so. I want
to thank you for your excellent work on our vacation. Everyone was
prompt and wonderful. We enjoyed our selves every minute.
Thank you again,
– we are now back in Ottawa after a wonderful trip to
Chile. I would like to particularly thank you for all the arrangements,
especially the flights and the non-Explora hotels, which were your
particular responsibility. All these arrangements worked perfectly, with
no problems at all. The flights were efficient and pleasant, especially
the business class flights to and from E. Island. The hotels were very
comfortable and well-equipped, especially the Ritz in Santiago. Your careful
planning made our trip relaxing and trouble-free. We will certainly recommend
your services to anyone we know who is interested in travel to Latin America.
With best wishes, David Morrow.
I just spoke to you about making reservations for my
January and February 2008 trip to Chile, and I want to thank you for being
so helpful and informative. I will write to you very soon with specific
information about where we want to go, and when, but in the meantime I
wanted to say thank you.
Thank you for all your help setting up our recent trip
to Chile: We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Chile.
The tours that you set up for the Atacama Desert and Easter Island
were excellent. The accommodations were good and tours companies were very
professional. The Neruda Apartment Hotel worked very well with us
since we stayed in Santiago for 6 nights. We did take your advice and took
day trips for example to Valparaiso and to the Cajon de Maipo. Again,
thank you for your travel services.
The Explora Hotel was fabulous! We had a wonderful
time. I can't begin to tell you how much we appreciated your help in getting
us the reservations! Thank you also for the gift we found in our room.
I was a bit nervous in the beginning, and I think I probably pestered you
too much! However, you came through, and we had an unforgetable experience!
I want to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip.
Everyone was so professional, and the guides on all the tours were so knowledgeable.
Everyone was right on time and we had absolutely no glitches. We absolutely
loved the Hotel Santa Cruz and thought the Hotel Galeria was lovely
for an urban environment. Thank you so much for your help, professionalism,
and expertise in making our trip to Chile a truly memorable experience!
Your advice and attention to detail was greatly appreciated. Chile is a
lovely country and we were so pleased to have experienced it with your
Good morning.Mr/Mrs U. returned to Japan safely.They
enjoyed the trip, and they were thankful for the complete arrangement by
Latin trip.And they said guides were also very kind.So I am very happy
and very pleased for your perfect arrangement andcooperation.I will ask
you again for the next tour. Thanks,Muchas gracias.
Dear Guillermo :
We had a wonderful time on the trip to Chile. The tour
guide from ADS Mundo (Emilena - I think that's how you spell it) was especially
good and the tours of Santiago and Val Parasio/Vina del Mar made
it much more than just a ski trip. The food up at Valle Nevado was
also really good- better than we had in Italy! (I am Italian so that's
a particularly hard thing to admit). The wine was better, too. I will recommend
you if someone ask for advice on travel to Latin America Thanks again for
all your help.
Dear Guillermo and Maria
Thank you for helping us to plan a wonderful trip to
Chile.The itinerary, hotels and tour guides you selected were all very
good. We had a great time.

Just a quick note to let you know that the trip you arranged
to portillo went off without a hitch.
Everything was exactly as expected and no suprises.Thanks
for your help and I will be speaking to you about other trips.
I just returned from South America and the package to
Island that I purchased through you. Everything turned out well, just
as you assured me. Thank you for your assistance and patience with all
We have fallen in love with South America. Everything
in Argentina and Chile was perfect. The travel guides and accommodations--both
were wonderful. The highlights were: The exquisite Alvear Palace and
Tango night/dinner at Esquina Carlos Gardel in Buenos Aires (also great
shopping in Buenos Aires and nice city tour with guide), the beautiful
Llao between Lake Nahuel Huapi and Lake Moreno, the “sail” across the
Andes with snow capped volcanoes and wild flowers arriving at lovely Puerto
Varas on Lake Llanquihue with a striking view of the perfect Osorno
Volcano; We liked everything about the Explora Lodge—it turned
out that the weather for our entire trip was unusually sunny and clear
with occasional rainbows. Only the second day hike at Torres del Paine
was windy with sleet/rain/ (and snow for Lee who took the challenge of
the hike to the British Camp) but even that day it stopped raining for
lunch and the wind and rain just gave us a better feel for Patagonia. The
vacation gods were definitely with us. The Explora staff and guides
were all professional, informative and service oriented. Each day on
the trail the guides unloaded their packs and carefully laid out a checkered
table cloth for a delicioso lunch with hot soup, sandwiches with guacamole,
artichoke hearts, home-made deserts and coffee with Baileys optional. We
thoroughly enjoyed the Grey Glacier hike/glacier boat trip and the
barbecue and horseback ride at the Estancia with the gaucho’s. We saw condors,
guanaco families, rhea families and eagles. The purple and pink lupines
and other wildflowers en route were absolutely stunning. We missed the
catamaran/zodiac from Torres del Paine to Puerto Natales because of high
winds but loved the penguin trip the next day on the way to Punta
Arenas (the area opened about 8 AM – a great time when there are very
few people in the study area and the penguins are out of their burrows
with their young with one mate parading to the ocean for food. There are
extensive board walks and a special viewing area to watch the gymnastics
in the waves). The Ritz Carlton in Santiago was another plus, plus,
plus –the rooms were lovely and the staff so accommodating with our late
departure time. Every transfer went smoothly—the guides were always on
time and extremely helpful with interactions at the airports. Thank you
again for working so patiently with us to make all the pieces fit together.
We will definitely highly recommend you personally and also Latintrip to
our friends and families.

I just got back from Argentina yesterday & wanted
to let you know we had a wonderful trip! Thank you for all your arrangements
--everything went very smoothly & there were no glitches -- which was
pretty amazing given the complexity of travelling in Patagonia! We really
loved the Explora Lodge -- that property is outstanding, & the
weather was perfect. Thanks for the bottle of wine you sent, which was
a nice welcome upon our arrival. We appreciate all your help to make our
holiday trip a memorable one.
I just wanted to give you a little feedback on our trip,
which we returned home yesterday. It was fantastic start to finish. Our
third leg of our trip was the Hotel Santa Cruz Plaza, and what a
great place! The staff and facility were just great. We had a couple days
of touring the area's museum, the wineries and an olive oil business. The
town is very charming. We will definately be recommending the hotel and
general area to our friends and family. And I personally look forward to
returning some day. Mucho Gracias to you for all your help and suggestions.
It all worked out beautifully.
Continued success to you,
Returning from Chile, I would like to inform you that
everything was OK and that all the services were provided according to
what was agreed.Transfers, guides, excursions and car rental were just
great. Concerning the hotels, only the rooms of Charles Darwin Hotel
in Puerto Natals were quite small and the hotel has no other services
than the (poor) breakfast. The Casa de Don Tomas, in San Pedro de Atacama,
is a basic hotel but the rooms have enough space. All the rest were according
to our expectations. In general, the only problem with the trip is time.
To visit Chile we need, at least, 2 months, not weeks! Thank you very much
for all your help and above all for the professionalism shown. I certainly
would recommend your agency (and your personal) services to any of my friends
who will consider a future trip to Chile.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with
our trip to Chile. The guides and services that Turismo provided were excellent.
We had A women that picked us up at the airport and did our 2 tours
in Santiago. Her name was Julie (or Julia) and then we had a man named
James who took us on the tour of Vina/Valparaiso and transported
us there. They could not have been better. The hotels were both great,
and the locations were wonderful. Overall we had a fantastic trip. I would
be sure to recommend your Services. If you ever need a recommendation please
be sure to let me know.
Thanks for everything.
Now that we have just returned home, I just wanted to
thank you for the bottle of wine that you left for us at explora; it was
quite thoughtful of you and much appreciated. The entire trip went extremely
well and everything flowed smoothly. It was a wonderful vacation and experience
and we thank you for helping us make it happen.
With warmest regards,Richard R.
Trip was great....the hotels in ushuai and califate

wine....it was delicious...bev schneir ........ just to let you know...the
update....the food is not edible there! and they are doing some remodeling

coordinating all the pieces ...it went just as planned
and we all loved
we had a WONDERFUL time on the Mare Australis
and in Beunos Aires. I want to thank you for all you have done on
our behalf. The cruise exceded my expectations and I couldn't get over
how nice every one was to us! Also in BA, i wasn't used to that great "customer
service"...I really do appreciate what you have done. If you are ever in
San Francisco, I would like to buy you dinner.
Thanks again, Bonnie F.
I just wanted to thank you for all the guides you arranged
for us during our recent trip in South America. They were all wonderful
and we had a marvelous time with them.
I am writing to you to thank you for arranging a wonderful
stay in Santiago for my wife and I and for the Ross's. Everything
was handled smoothly and without a problem. The Ritz-Carlton was
superb and the tour guide we had was the best that I ever had. The guides
name is Jorge Carpio and I have only nice things to say about him. He made
our stay in Santiago a very memorable one. If you ever need a recommendation,
feel free to use my name. I thank you again and hope that we do business
again in the near future.
Take care. Sincerely, Eugene S.
Dear Maria and Ceci,
Many thanks for all your hard work and for helping me
put together Michel's Chile trip and Mr. C.'s pre-tour to Peru,
Everyone had a wonderful time and said they really love the trip and Chile.
All the hotels where great, the food fabulous the people very friendly.
Ceci, you know how worried Mr C. was about getting his vouchers and tickets....
and would some one really be there to pick him up at the airport ect....well,
he can't say enough good things about his trip and how well it was planned
out. How nice everyone was, how great the tours where, how informative
the tour guides where....he told me to highly recommend your company to
anyone who wants to travel to Peru or Chile.
Again, many thanks for all the hours you put into helping
me.The next time I have clients that want a tour of either country I will
definitely call you!!! Hope you have a great Valentine's Day today.
This is a short note to thank you for the excellent arrangements
for our recent trip to Argentina. Everything went very smoothly
and we had a wonderful time. In the future, we are planning to take a trip
(3N) to Esteros del Ibera (Arg.) and staying at Posada Aquape, and to the
Atacama Desert (Chile) and staying at the Explora Lodge (4N). When you
have time, you might put together an itinery and cost estimate and send
it to me. It would be better to visit the desert last.
Maria and Ed C.
Our trip to Santa Cruz was incredible...
Thanks for all your help,
would like to provide some individual feedback regarding
our recent trip to Chile.
Overall it was an excellent trip and we enjoyed ourselves
very much. We would also recommend Latintrip, Skorpios and ADSMUNDO
to our friends.
We were very happy with the hotels including the Galerias
in Santiago, the Colonos del Sur in Puerto Varas, the Santa
Cruz Plaza in Santa Cruz and Los Lingues.Thanks
Bill and Diane C.
My wife and I want to let you know that we are having
a great time and experience in Argentina and Chile. The arrangements
worked out perfectly and your colleagues were most helpful. We also
found the hotels very good and the tours up to all expectations, including
the weather. We want to thank you for your expert assistance.
I will be in contact when we return to Washington.
Just want to let you know that we had a fabulous trip
at the Explora. (we got the room upgrade )
All of the Lan plane reservations were perfect
Many thanks for all of your help.
Can you also book Lan JFK to Santiago in business class
at a lower rate?
We are thinking about another Chilean trip next year
All the best,
Patti & Ken F.
