Alan K. from New York, NY; traveled to Peru & Ecuador

Just returned from our wonderful vacation to Peru and Ecuador. We had a fantastic time. Everything was just wonderful. I want to thank you for your help and expert guidance in planning our vacation. Your hotel selections were perfect, the private guides wonderful (especially our guide Diego in Cusco), and the transportation/logistics were flawless.

Now for the fun of reviewing and editing down about 2000 pictures from Peru and the Galapagos!

Thank you so very much for arranging a trip of a lifetime. The four boys were in heaven the entire time. Our photos are all remarkable. I will send you a few to show you how happy we all were with the experiences.
The first impression about what was about to happen during our two weeks in Africa, was when we met our driver and your representative. I knew that we were safe and would be well-looked after. Our guides/drivers were both men of great integrity in how they viewed their positions....they saw what they did as a career choice rather than just a job. They were not only very knowledgeable and experienced in the stories of their respective countries, but truly cared about our needs, our safety, and our happiness.
Thank you in your selection of our guides (Robert and Edward) ....their seasoned experience made all the difference.
With respect to our hotels and separate lunches, your selections were amazing. We always felt very safe and very comfortable.
This ambiance added greatly to the quality of our daily enjoyment of the safaris.
Again, it has been a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to many more travel experiences with your agency.

Willy N. from New York; traveled to Peru

All we can say is WOW! The trip was great.
The touring and exposure to the Incan culture, and the visits to Chabad were great. What exceeded every expectation was the service provided by the guides, drivers and staff everywhere.....that was just superb. They really "made" the trip.
Getting off a plane in a foreign country and seeing a name of your travel party prominently held by "our" guide was truly welcoming.
Beyond remarkable was the fact that everywhere we went there was always someone with our travel group's name on a placard. That guide whisked us through every bureaucracy. Whether it was the train, plane, very early morning pick ups... or tourist sites, the personnel were always a step ahead of us and guiding us. The guides were knowledgeable, personable, charming and respectful. We developed relationships with them along the way.

What a wonderful way to travel. Our party of four The other members of my party felt as one in our opinion that we would work with you on our next journey (whenever that will be).

Eitan, we had a great time! Loved Turkey. LOVED our hotels -- all of them. And loved Arzu our female guide who was with us in Istanbul and Cappadocia. The guide who took us to Bursa was excellent. Very informative. It was a perfect trip -- flawless. Thank you so much for all the time that went into putting it together for us.

Peachy L. from Millcreek, WA; traveled to Peru

I hope this finds you well! We're still in the middle of our trip, but I wanted to take some time to give you a huge "Thanks" for helping us put this trip itinerary together. We have thoroughly enjoyed everything so far. We are now in the sacred valley and in love with La Casona de Yucay! It's sooo beautiful here! Perfect place to relax before starting our trek tomorrow (wish us luck!).
You were right when you told me it was a magical place to visit! We aren't sure we could ever surpass the experiences we've had so far, but I'm sure Machu Picchu will be the icing on the cake.
Thanks again for all your help!

Andrea S. from New York; traveled to Israel & Jordan

Dear Eitan,

We returned yesterday from our journey and what a journey it was!
The Petra/Wadi Raam portion was extraordinary! really amazing. You must sample it yourself to experience it. The outfit who took care of us in Jordan was first class in every way. We were all blown away by the location and the accommodations. Very unique and perfect after a hectic and action packed few days.
Thank you, thank you for making it possible and more than we could have imagined!
We look forward to contacting you the next time we are ready for adventure.
all best,
Andrea

Hi Eitan,

They were there every time and on time always. It made a lot of difference for them being there.
The tour guide were very professional and well versed with all knowledge, very courteous.
Thank you so much for everything.

Nancy L, from Atlanta GA; traveled to Peru

Good morning Eitan, I just left a message for you – wanted to let you know our trip to Peru was amazing and wonderful. I also wanted to share some restaurants we found in some of the cities we visited in case other clients ask for recommendations. In Urabambo, we ate at Sol y Luna once, it was good. We also ate at 3 Keros, which was actually better, lots of fun and a bit more “authentic.” In Cuzco we ate in Limo on the main plaza the first night (Peru-Japanese fusion). It was excellent. We also went to the MAP Café per your recommendation – outstanding!! Fallen Angel was a “trip.” In Puno, we ate at Mugsa in the square – it had a nice variety, high energy and was very good. We actually enjoyed walking around Puno’s town square – we thought that part of the city was lively, attractive and taxis were readily available to take us back to the hotel. All our accommodations were great!! Your recommendations for hotels were wonderful. Thanks for everything you did to make this trip a success – we absolutely LOVED it and hope to return to Peru to see new things. Take care, Nancy
