– 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
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
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
Easter Island that I purchased through you. Everything turned out well,
just as you assured me. Thank you for your assistance and patience with
all my questions.
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 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
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 were
perfect....very impressed with lanchile airlines...the people , the food...all
was wonderful...thank you maria and thank you for the wine....it was delicious...bev
schneir ........ just to let you know...the sheraton update....the food
is not edible there! and they are doing some remodeling but i think if
anyone had more than 24 hours to spend there they would be better off someplace
else! thanks again for
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
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
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 too!
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.
