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!

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

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

Jennifer H. from Maui, Hawaii; traveled to Peru, Brazil and Argentina

I just wanted to email you and thank you for everything that you arranged for us during our recent trip to Peru, plus Brazil. It all went like
clockwork and each guide was there exactly as arranged and all the transfers went very smoothly. Everywhere we stayed we had excellent service and extremely hospitable staff. Especially at the 2 Aranwa hotels where we particularly liked all the employees I have to say that the people of Peru are among the nicest people I have met.

All our guides and tours were excellent. We loved Machu Picchu and some of us, including me hiked to the Sun Gate on the 2nd morning. We were very
lucky with the weather everywhere we went, particularly considering it was the rainy season. And all our flights flew as planned. We had a bit of a scare while waiting to fly to Lake Titicaca, but at the last minute it cleared and the flight only took 37 minutes. I should also mention that we particularly enjoyed spending time with the family on the island. They are such a charming family and we enjoyed talking to the 2 boys and seeing the
knitting that the older one does. Charlie bought one of his hats for $10. The lunch was maybe the best meal we had anywhere. The soup was delicious
and the trout too was excellent. We had a very nice day and we loved their traditional dance and the costumes.

Iguacu Falls was well worth going to and I'm glad we saw both sides and that you let us know that Americans have to have the extra visa. Our ship with Oceania did not know this and all the people who went on their private overnight tour could only visit the Brazil side. Not very professional of them. We also enjoyed Tiago the guide that we had with us all day and at the airport. We were very lucky and saw an alligator, a huge cat fish and in the afternoon monkeys all around us. Tiago said he hadn't seen the monkeys for several weeks. And we loved those Toucan birds in the bird park.
