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.

Perry N. from Los Angeles, CA; traveled to Peru

We’re back from our two-weeks in Peru, and I wanted to let you know how everything went. First off, it was a great trip. There were no problems with transportation, housing, meals or general schedule. In fact, everything went just as planned. Our tour guide, Judith, and driver, Ricardo, were both excellent. Spending 9 days with them was a pleasure. We saw all the sights, had great meals, and really enjoyed their company. I would recommend them to anyone traveling to Northern Peru without hesitation. The Amazon portion of the trip was also problem free. After meeting up with our guide Roger at the airport, we were taken to the docks for the boat ride to the lodge. Once there, Roger was our personal tour guide, so we didn’t have to deal with any groups while traveling around the area. He was very informative and really helped explain all that we saw. The lodge was great, but on the rustic side. It reminded me a boy scout camp, but with liquor and better food. We actually made a change to the Celba Tops lodge for the last night. We wanted to visit Iquitos on the last day, and the only way to do that was to move closer up river. So Roger was able to arrange for us to stay the last night in air conditioned comfort. Boy, was that a relief. While I liked the rustic nature of the Explorama lodge, 3 nights was more than enough. We then spent the last day with Rodger touring around Iquitos. This really capped the trip, as we not only got to see the jungle, but see some of the sights in town. Roger is another guide that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Iquitos and the surrounding area.

So overall this was a very stress free holiday. I want to thank you for all the work you did in putting this together. It really showed in the seamlessness of going from one activity to another. I’ll definitely be contacting you for our next visit to South America.

Adamm G. from Santa Monica, CA; traveled to Argentina & Peru

Having just returned from a trip to South America I cannot praise the work by Spiced Destinations and it’s president Eitan Silberberg enough. Eitan was recommended by Lima Tours who in turn was recommended by a travel agent friend. From the planning stages until the day we left Eitan was there. He made suggestions for all facets of the trip. This included Buenos Aires, Iguassu Falls, and especially Peru with Macchu Picchu as the main destination. Eitan’s choice of hotels was superb. He advised and set our itinerary, made hotel reservations, included meals, and arranged for transportation and guides throughout the Peru portion. The airline and most of the hotel stays were booked through our own use of miles and hotel preferred guest status. Never the less Eitan took the time to advise us on all aspects of the trip.
The trip went flawlessly and we are especially grateful for his choice of guides while in Peru, which included the best of all our years of travel.
I cannot recommend Spiced Destination more highly.
