What our guests say about this trip

We loved the way our Travel Consultant was extremely patient, and accommodating from the very beginning. He designed a marvellous trip, was efficient and thorough. For his part, in organising our trip – hats off!! His advice on our destinations was brilliant! Could not fault his experience and professionalism.

Overall our accommodation was terrific. We were all very happy with our guides and tours.

Great Chauffeurs!! As a surprise, our driver in Valparaiso organised a tour of the lighthouse, which we all loved!! They were extremely flexible in our plans.
