What our travelers are saying

David & Apryl Imboden
from the United States to Peru
Dear CAT, Thanks so much for an incredible time in Peru. The service that you provided during our private tour was amazing. The guides were knowledgeable, the hotels were above the level we expected and everything that was included was more than we could have imagined. We loved traveling along the coast and of course Machu Picchu was a greater highlight than any pictures can do justice. Sincerely, David and Apryl Imboden, Orange, CA
Andrew & Debra Lee
from the United States to Argentina, Brazil & Peru
Hi Sarah, We had a wonderful time and it was a great trip overall! Could not have had the experience that we did without your help - no regrets at all in booking with CAT! (I have already forwarded a link to your website to a co-worker who is interested in traveling to South America in the future). Thanks for all of your and Alex’s help in making our trip a memorable one! Regards, Andrew
Angela Willis & Son
from the United States to Brazil & Peru
Sarah, The vacation to Brazil and Peru was great! All of the guides were good, but Luiz and Fernando were exceptional! Both of them went out of their way to accommodate us and make our trip special. Pascuale was also very good, he certainly knows his way around Machu Picchu. I would recommend this trip to anyone! The hotels were wonderful as well. We even enjoyed the Andean Wings. I found the staff to be welcoming and the hotel quaint. The Sonesta Posada was a real stand out. Thanks again for your help in putting everything together. We had a great time! Angela

Dear CAT Travel, We had a most wonderful time in Argentina. Working with Marcos was a real joy.  He proved to be very helpful and knowledgeable about his product and services.  All the transfers were executed punctually with friendly and professional staff.  The tours for the most part were excellent, depending on the guide, their overall knowledge, delivery and fluency in the English language. The hotels were all very clean, comfortable, and for the most part in good locations in respect to the center of town.  I can honestly say that it was a once in a lifetime trip and our best travel experience. It is a really wonderful travel destination, we loved, loved,loved Argentina! Annalena Burbridge
