Patricia B; from Dobbs Ferry, NY; traveled to Argentina & Brazil

On behalf of the Kreitzmans, Yoods and us Bermans, collectively, we want to thank you for the trip of a lifetime to South America.
From the initial contact with Luciana through touch down back in New York the experience with Spiced Destinations
was almost perfection. The timing and planning was excellent, the hotels were superb, the local guides were all tremendous (Arianna in Buenos Aires, Rodrigo in Iguazzu and Laura in Rio) and we felt secure and taken care of in each locality. In addition to Buenos Aires and Rio, Iguazzu which is a must for ANYONE traveling to that
part of the world. Make sure to tell people, as well, that with the right guide and the proper precautions that we felt safe in Rio and indeed were able to walk the beach of Copacabana unaccompanied. Additionally the customization of the touring to include the sites of Jewish interest was meaningful for all of us and not something we could have achieved on a boilerplate tour. How lucky we were to come upon your agency at the recommendation of Tova Gilead. We look forward to additional adventures and working with you in the future.

Dear Eitan,

Our trip to Peru was absolutely wonderful. I have dubbed it the Excellent Exhausting Excursion! Whew! We saw so much and it was so exciting. We never could of handled such a complex itinerary if it were not for your company and the helpful human waiting for us in the (luxurious) hotel lobbies and airports. Thank you so very much for listening so carefully to our concerns and for arranging a truly memorable trip.

with best regards,

Hi Eitan,
We have been back for two weeks now but Peru is still on our mind. Thanks for organizing some of the trip for us. Everything was perfect. Lima tour did a superb job and we enjoyed all the hotels you choose for us.
Perhaps our best memory was in Canyon de Colca. The flight of the condors was unforgettable and our hotel my favorite in the whole trip.
We are planning a couple of weeks in Spain in October, anybody you would recommend to help me organize this trip.
Thanks again, I will highly recommend you to our friends, Christiane

Bart and I have returned from our wonderful vacation. Thank you so much for putting together such a memorable trip. We really lucked out and had great weather. The guides and activities were fantastic. The Singular hotels are incredible - the one in Patagonia is a destination of its own.

I hope to have the opportunity to plan another trip with you in 2016.
Warm regards,

Richard J. from Sycamore IL; traveled to Ecuador and Peru

We are returned from South America and we wanted to thank you for your help in setting up the trip. Your recommendations were right on target. All the connections were flawless. The various guides were interesting and knowledgeable. The experiences were very cool. We especially enjoyed the Galapagos Islands. It was very active, sometimes with 4 different excursions during a day. Snorkeling and cavorting with the sea lions was only one highlight.

Thanks again. We had a great time and we hope to be able to use your services again in the future.

Mary B. from New York; traveled to Peru

I have waited until my return to thank you for the most wonderful trip. Jeff and I enjoyed every single minute…from the air plane seats to the smallest kernel of corn! We have traveled all over the world, with many tour companies and guides as well as on our own. We have been to Bolivia, Argentina, Chile but never Peru. I have been to Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Bhutan in the early 80’s, New Zealand, Europe, the Alps I could go on and on but this section of the Andes are truly the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen. They are haunting.

You guides were interested, knowledgeable and polite. We especially liked Ruth in Lima (one of the world’s ugliest cities in my opinion). None the less Lima was fun! Being on the ocean makes all the difference and then there is the food! What a great surprise and delight......We loved all your accommodations but by far the Palacio Nazaranes in Cuzco was fantastic. Simple beautiful, wonderful attention to detail and service. The folks who work there are attentive and kind and helpful. The drivers were fantastic.

The Inkaterra also was terrific and our room spectacular as all our rooms were. Jeff and I would love to return to Peru. The question is what part to visit next and when. You will be hearing from us again.
We will be getting back to you eventually thank you for all your planning and suggestions and hard work.
