I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well! Who could have foreseen electric storms and the civil unrest in Chile. You couldn’t have looked after us better if you had been on the spot! We had an AWESOME adventure – your advice and suggestions were bang on the nail every time. Each hotel was better than the next and the cruise was FANTASTIC.
