Adventures in South America! Our travel agency led by our travel coordinator promised us a custom designed/ first class and unforgettable travel experience in Argentina and Brazil -- they delivered on this to perfection. Every detail of the trip was executed without fail and our travel coordinator was more than capable of managing our inexperience and wariness about utilizing a travel service not based in the US.
Our agency's in country location and experience was evident as our coordinator crafted an amazing itinerary based upon our initial inputs surrounding our vacation preferences. This trip (December 19 - January 4, 2015) was took us through Argentina (Buenos Aires/ Mendoza/ Bariloche/ Iguazu) and Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) with private excursions through some of the both countries' most desired sites/ local experiences and culminated in a suggested highlight of spending New Year's Eve in Rio in a fantastic hotel along the Copacabana beach -- simply remarkable.
My travel coordinator managed our travel experience with constant contact prior to our trip and throughout our stay. He makes it a point to meet you during the initial portion of the trip (Buenos Aires) and is absolutely accessible by phone to handle any circumstance that may arrive. The suggested venues to visit; restaurants to sample (he managed the reservations) and excursions to experience were top notch. The trip's activities were spaced and allowed us just the perfect amount of free time to explore the cities or relax.
If there were issues that arose (one company cancelled a series of bookings on our schedule, for example), our travel coordinator and his team handled the situation for us before we were even aware of the impending issue.
We cannot express our satisfaction with our travel agency with anything less than a perfect rating!! The company lived up to its billing on their website and we are promoters of both Zicasso and this company. As frequent travelers who take a "big trip" every other year, we will absolutely utilize their services again!!!! Our recommendations have nothing but positives.. Thank you to our travel coordinator!!! Thank you to our travel agency!!!
Our trip was filled with highlights, but the first thing that stands out is the sheer beauty of the regions that we visited. Both Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro offer interesting experiences that accompany major cities.
For us, we will never forget: The wine country in Mendoza at the wine lodge (an incredible sunset dinner on the roof top of your villa); the incredible beauty of Bariloche and kayaking on Moreno Lake; the thundering falls of Iguazu (you must take the raft excursion to the mouth of one of the waterfalls) and New Year's Eve at a party along the Copacabana Beach.
The only thing that we would do differently, and it is cliche.... Would have been to extend our total trip by one week to experience Patagonia. Will get there next time!!
