Diane N. from FROSCH Travel in Deerfiled, IL; traveled to Brazil
Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity to experience Brazil. It far exceeded my expectations. What a beautiful country and the people are truly warm and friendly. The fam has opened my eyes to a new destination to sell and add to an amazing South American itinerary. From the amazing sights, museums, food and wine and nature and wildlife, it can’t be missed.
Spiced Destinations is outstanding in every way. The meticulously planned itinerary was a perfect balance of organized activities and leisure time. We were able to get a true sense of the culture and daily life through the activities we were immersed in, such as the music and dance lessons planned. We then were able to go out into a local club and restaurant to enjoy what we learned. The trip to the local market to learn and buy the local foods and spices for our cooking class and lunch was amazing and delicious! It is a memory I will not forget.
The guides were spectacular and fantastic. They were always cheerful and helpful in every way. They were a wealth of knowledge that made our trip such a fun and learning experience. I can not recommend them enough. The hotels were always in perfect locations and
luxury beyond belief. I truly look forward to selling Brazil and Spiced Destinations to my clients without hesitation.
Marilyn Z. from Chicago, IL; traveled to Peru
You did it again! We had a wonderful time in Peru! The landscape was awesome, the food delicious, our accommodations luxurious in most cases, the culture fascinating and the Incan ruins left me speechless. Our guides were superb and possessed a wealth of knowledge about everything it seemed. Flora, fauna, history, environment, economics, they knew it all. Our tight schedule went without a hitch and for that I hope you send Eitan our heartfelt gratitude. Most importantly, our altitude pills worked extremely well, so we suffered no ill-effects at all. In fact, I think I may have achieved a new level of physical fitness from climbing up and down the uneven stone steps at the various Incan ruins! A value add!
I guess, most importantly, the Peruvian people were extremely kind and attentive. From drivers, to bus boys, to the wait staff in restaurants, hotel clerks, and everyone else we met, all seemed genuinely intent on making us feel welcome and valued.
I’m so glad we accepted the challenge of Peru. It was definitely one of those trips of a lifetime. Thanks for making it all happen for us!
Barbara R. from Southfield, MI: traveled to Iceland
Everything worked out wonderfully. You did a fantastic job of taking care of all the details - even when we missed our culinary tour, it was rescheduled. Thanks to all for a carefree journey. BTW we ate fermented shark on the culinary tour, and it wasn’t so bad. We skipped the ram’s testicles and singed sheep head which we understand are also Icelandic specialties.
I should have added that this guide was very well informed and spoke without major prompting from us - we like that rather than having to interview a guide.

Janys G. from New York, NY; traveled to India and the Maldives
We had such a great time ....everything was planned beautifully and we really are so happy we made the trip!! We loved all the activities and all the guides and especially our driver. He took great care of us and even making sure all was well in the Maldives too. I told the agent in India that he he was excellent. Even with the terrible roads in Kerala I felt very comfortable with him.
Thank you for another amazing trip....we have to think of our next one!
Tom S. from Mcleansboro, IL; traveled to Nepal and Sri Lanka
We wanted to thank you for helping to make our trip very special. All of the accommodations were wonderful in different ways. Our guides & drivers were definitely a diverse & interesting group, most spoke good English & were very knowledgeable. The whole experience at Chitwan was wonderful, & service was over the top! Carolyn wanted to adopt Sanjay who seemed to be our personal man Friday.
Wild Coast Tented Lodge has to be experienced to believe how good the “tents” are. It is hard to beat wild animals on the property, sundowners on the beach every night, service with a smile, & safaris every day. I do not know how you found out about the dinner with the family out in the country, but it was something special. The overall feeling on the whole trip was how friendly everyone was.
If you have anyone looking for an experience "off the beaten path” send them on this trip, & they will not be disappointed. Thanks, Tom & Carolyn

The trip was INCREDIBLE!!!!! Everything went so smoothly and everyone really enjoyed all of the activities. Attached is a pic of us all at the top of Machu Picchu...a truly amazing experience!!
Our favorite hotel was Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba. It was stunning! The train rides were a fun and beautiful way to travel through Peru. .... We also LOVED the cooking class. Our chef was great and it was a unique way to experience Cuzco and the local food.
Thank you for your help planning the trip!!!!
