Hi Marcos,

Thank you so much for your kind words and we are glad that you love the pictures. We really had a good time in South America and this would not have happened without your help and good service from your company. We assure you that we will need CAT and your service again once we will travel to our next destination — Central America.

All in all: “It’s so Great and Beyond Our Expectations for this Tour!

Keep up the good work, Marcos!!!

Regards,
Eduardo

Hi Sarah,

We first learned of CAT through a friend who had just returned from a Machu Picchu trip organized by CAT. This friend had such great experiences working with CAT that it was clear that we had to choose CAT when it came time to plan our trip. We have traveled to Asia, Europe, and across North America and can report that this trip to South America is amongst the best travel experiences that we have had. A crucial factor in the success of our trip was the exceptional service delivered by CAT in all aspects from planning, guidance, arrangements, and logistics. We found CAT so extremely efficient, reliable and helpful during our trip that we did not have to worry or be concerned with logistics allowing us to focus and enjoy all that Easter Island and Peru had to offer.

In closing, we are extremely pleased and very satisfied with how CAT has helped us with this epic trip. When we first started planning this trip a year ago, it was all about getting to Machu Picchu. We now know that Machu Picchu is only one aspect of Peru and that the country has so much more to explore. Similarly, the Moai represents just a single chapter in the long and sometimes tragic history of Rapa Nui. We are grateful to CAT for helping us develop our understanding of these cultures. We definitely look forward to future adventures with CAT and will watch your website and email updates for new travel options.

Aloha,
Ed and Marilyn

Hello Sarah,

We want to say THANK YOU for a truly wonderful and exciting vacation. All went well on the trip and we truly enjoyed the experience!

1. All pick ups were on time.

2. All guides were professional and helpful. Our guide in Brazil, Guilherme, was very good and helpful. We ate at two very wonderful restaurants in Rio as well. The Niteroi tour went well. We asked the guide to include a visit to the Christ Redeemer which she did before proceeding to the Niemeyer museum.

3. Iguazu was great and we ate one night in a fine restaurant in town. Eliezer was great and we had sun on the Argentina side.

4. We loved Buenos Aires and our hotel was great. We also loved the neighborhood. Great food once again. We went to Sottovoce which was great for Italian and fish. The Jewish tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and we did visit a synagogue/ museum. We spent part of our day of leisure at the art museum MALBA which had a spectacular new exhibit. Our guide Daniel was very knowledgeable and helpful.

5 Peru was great. We enjoyed Cuzco and the sacred valley. We would have liked to have had an extra day to explore Cuzco and the Inca museum there. The group tours went well with our guide Freddy. He was the guide for both the Cuzco tour and the Sacred Valley tours.

6. Hotels were great in Cuzco but the Casa Andina Private Collection Sacred Valley was outstanding. They also had a very fine restaurant. Most places had fish especially trout.

7. You are correct that it was sunny our first day at Machu Picchu. Our guide Pascual was out standing and very patient as we climbed up to the Caretakers Hut. Our second day there was cloudy but NO rain. We were not up to the hike to Huayna Picchu but spent a second day exploring the ruins on our own.

8. Our day in Lima was very informative. Maribel was outstanding and helpful. Our best meal on the trip was at Restaurant Central in Lima. Wonderful! We had Corvina fish prepared two ways…Heaven on earth? The Museum Larco was unique and interesting. Helene loved the gift shop. Outstanding museum.

9. Both hotels in Cuzco were very nice and comfortable with helpful staff. Betsabe was sweet and suggested an organic restaurant, Greens, that had fish and vegetarian. We in fact ate there two nights as we found the food great.

We are very pleased consumers. We would soon like to begin planning for another vacation next fall to spend time in Argentina/Chile!

Thanks again.
