We had a fantastic time on our trip to South America! The service provided by our travel agency was wonderful . They took care of every detail, so all we had to do is relax and have fun! The hotels were exactly what we requested. They were small boutique places. The hotel made of salt was fabulous! The guides and drivers were well trained and spoke good English. We did not have a single complaint during our trip, except when our luggage was removed from the plane because of weight restrictions. This had nothing to do with the tour and the representative was on the phone to us to reassure us all would be well! I would give the highest poaaible rating to Zicasso and to this travel agent and their director!
There were so many memorable moments. In the Galapagos, I was snorkeling over sleeping sharks. The frigate birds were nesting and the sea lions were nursing. The color of the water was magical!
In Amazonia, the cicadas were better than our alarm clock and the butterflies swarmed around us. The canoe ride through the channels of jungle water was enchanting! The many colors of green took my breath away.
The Inca ruins were amazing . Machu Pichu was fascinating, as well as the other ruins around Cusco. We loved our hotel in the 17th century monestatry. The old towns with their blue doors and red flags indicating they served beer were a reminder that the conquistadors were there! I was fascinated by the moorish influences in the architecture.
Lake Titiccaca was wonderful. The communities living on the reeds gave me a real insight into their culture. We went to an island that was like a park. The steep stairs were ancient and the local people had gardens on the steep sides. We were blessed by a shamim,petted lamas, served tea and visited a garden of all the medicinal plants of the Incas.
The biggest surprise of the trip was the Bolivian salt flats! They were awesome! We saw huge cactus, pink flamingos, salt brick making, and endless white. Our young guide and the driver were darling. We mentioned that we had been married 55 years, so they made us a gift! They made an enormous heart out of salt bricks with our initials and an arrow! They took a picture of us standing by it. Even our children were impressed!
Thank you for giving us this experience of a lifetime!
nothing. It was perfect
