Here is what people are saying about their travel experiences with us.......


I returned from my trip to Chile on Monday morning as you know.  I just want to thank you so much for doing such an excellent job for us.  The tour that you set up with Turismo Coche was just wonderful.  Everything worked beautifully.  The hotel in Puerto Varas was lovely and comfortable, the staff there was extremely efficient and always kind and accommodating.  Our tour guide, Alex, and bus driver, Raul, were excellent and we just loved them.  The area around Puerto Montt was gorgeous.  We especially liked Petrohue and the lovely hotel there.  The weather actually cooperated quite well during our tour.  We were met at the airport in Santiago by a very nice person, Maria, and a comfortable bus.  They also took us back to the airport for our departure.  The hotel in Santiago was very nice and the staff amiable.  I told them I would let you know that we were very happy with our stay there.  The most wonderful thing was that both hotels allowed us to keep our rooms and check out just before the buses came to pick us up even though it was around 4:00 pm both days.  Everything that you set up for us worked smoothly and efficiently and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Thanks again, Martha, and please put me on your list of references!  I will be happy to speak to anyone who is contemplating using you and Marnella Tours.
Sincerely,

Hi All;
I returned on Sunday. What an incredible time I had!! Everything was perfect. Even the weather was most acceptable. I have nothing but praise for Metropolitan Touring. Their personnel, vehicles, expertise, personality, etc., was exemplary. They were there whenever I needed them. For the three days down to Cuenca, we had Juan, and he was great! It was a fabulous experience. Everything went exactly as planned. I took about 1600 pictures, a bunch of video (especially in the Galapagos), and brought back tons of souvenirs and memories. You folks have now given me two wonderful trips to South America. The Chiva Express was so neat! Just this last Saturday, I had a delightful day going up to Otovalo. I enjoyed visited the home where they weave, visiting the home where the lady made the flutes (I bought the one she made for us), and enjoyed lunch at the gorgeous hacieda. Wow, everything was just super, super, super!! Praise to you all for your most generous assistance to me over these months. Let us hope I may be able to call upon you sometime again in the future. Bottom line- I have nothing but exemplary praise for you, your agents in Ecuador, the accomodations used, etc.
Regards;
Howard H

Buenos dias,
I wanted my first email to be to you to thank you for all the special care and handling of our trip to Peru. We were really impressed.  I gave them a couple of suggestions and we discovered some things that we wish we had planned differently (private tours, Nazca and Amazon cruise cabin), but I must tell you that a lucky star was working the day I received your email.Thank you again for a life changing and amazing journey---we can’t wait to go back
Viva Marnella and Peru!
Warmest Regards,
Judy S

Hi John,
Finally have a few minutes to sit down and write a more complete review of the trip.
First of all I want you to know that the selection of the Casa Andina Private Collection for the hotels was excellent.  Couldn't be happier with all the facilities, and I have just put my comments on Trip Advisor.And what can I say about the Sanctuary Lodge and the train from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes... five stars all the way!But I do want to make emphasis on a particular aspect of the arrangements, the guides!  A great group of professionals that knew their business. From Genaro, who waited for us in Lima to guide us through the check in process for the flight to Cuzco, and then met us again on the return to Lima.Ruben met us in Cuzco, very efficient, for the tours in Cuzco had Sandra, what a delightful person, extremely knowledgeable, had us riveted to her explanations everywhere we visited. In Machu Picchu, Wellington was waiting for us, delightful, patient, humorous... and so knowledgeable!
In Puno, friendly Felix gave us the most fascinating explanation of the history and background on the floating islands, Taquille, and the culture of the residents on both places,  Very accommodating, could not have asked for anyone better prepared for his job.  Also the boat that took us around was run by two wonderful young men who did not mind sharing there experience with us.
In Lima we had Cecil, very friendly, the visit to the Hacienda, superb, we all rode the horses, some of us owned horses at one time or another, so it was a great experience and the meal out of this world.
In Lima historical center--here we ran into a bit of a delay because of traffic and had to rush the visit to Larco, which was a shame because it is worth spending a half a day there-- but in all was very enjoyable.
You were fantastic in the planning and executing of the tour.
Lets keep in touch and when I get a chance I will send you information on the Brazil and Morocco tours...you may want to do something like that some day...
Regards,
Sara M

Hi
This is a belated thank you for your assistance in putting together our recent Ecuador trip.
It was a grand time - things could not have gone more smoothly.
We were so impressed that we booked an additional day trip to the Cloud Forest.
And the guide who took us on the Chiva Express was also excellent.
Should you ever need a reference for this trip, please feel free to use our name!
Best regards,
David & Margery B
