Hear what our customers have to say about their experiences travelling with Eclipse Travel
In a word WOW! Our 30 day trip covered Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and Chile. Many thanks to yourself and to all your team. We had a great experience with plenty of variety and wonderful memories. Just wish we had had more time for our trip. Everything went smoothly with transfers, accommodation and tours. Highlights were definitely the Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu, Sandoval Lake (Amazon) and the 3-day crossing of the Bolivian high plains from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama. All our guides and drivers were good but we would like to thank and make special mention of Gus in Buenos Aires, Yuri Rivera in Puerto Maldonado (Sandoval Lake) and our guide, Paolo and driver, Ever who took us across the Bolivian high plains from Uyuni to San Pedro. These people were particularly attentive and made for very pleasant company during our time with them. This was our first trip to Sth America and tour with Eclipse Travel. We will be back for more.
Noel from Bacchus Marsh, VIC
Being a single female traveler I felt very safe and comfortable with all travel arrangements. Guides and drivers were in always waiting for me at the airport and train stations. Highly recommend!
Regina from Camberwell, VIC
We are extremely happy with the entire trip to Lima, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Puno, La Paz, Santiago Rio, Iguacu and Buenos Aires that Karen from Eclipse Travel organised for us. The guides and drivers were very good, the hotels nice and well located. It was a pleasure dealing with Karen and we will happily recommend this company for any travel requirements especially South American.
Madduma from Doncaster, VIC
I was delighted with the whole experience. The hotels were a delight – often charming little boutiques. Our guides for the most part were charming, accommodating and very knowledgeable. The easy with which we were able to make connections with the help of very efficient transfers were superb. The itinerary was excellent and we saw things we never dreamt of. The tango show in BA far exceeded expectations, the Amazon jungle was all we could have hoped for, and Machu Picchu was breath-taking. This was an experience never to be forgotten and I would like to thank Eclipse for their painstaking care in making arrangements which capitalized on what South America has to offer.
Christine from Canada, CA
5 week trip to South America traveling through Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Antarctica. Entire trip organized by Tiffany Chek who was extremely helpful, professional and efficient to deal with. Every aspect of the trip (excluding one cancelled LATAM flight) went like clockwork. All guides were excellent and knowledgeable. All airport/hotel pickups/drop offs were always on time with clean modern transportation and very friendly, polite and helpful drivers. All hotels were excellent and usually within walking distance of interesting sites and restaurants etc. We had a substantial number of connecting flights in our itinerary and all of them were well planned with enough time to transit from International to domestic terminals where required (usually with buffer time to allow for unforeseen circumstances which do happen in South America). Eclipse Travel are extremely knowledgeable and are definitely experts in South American travel, thoroughly recommend them and would definitely use them again.
Bradley from Echuca, VIC
We were extremely pleased with the arrangement of our tours in South America covering Chile, Argentina and Patagonia by Eclipse Tours. The guides were instructive and helpful all throughout and the trip to Torres del Paine, Bariloche and El Calafate were astounding with incredible sights and scenery. The Estancia trip was unforgettable so too for the dinner and tango performance in Buenos Aires. Thank you for making this an enjoyable trip and something to remember by. We will make another trip to visit Peru and Brazil the next time around.
Kris & Jay from Pascoe Vale, VIC
Travel to Patagonia via eclipse tours was immensely enjoyable and we covered quite a bit of breathtaking sights. The guides were knowledgeable particularly in Torres del Paine, Estancia visit, Mt Tronador and also Chile. It was truly memorable and we would not hesitate to recommend eclipse tours.
Kris from Melbourne, VIC
I was very impressed in all my dealings with all the consultants I dealt with especially Karen and Camilla! Thank you!
Gay from Hove, SA
Our 14 person group trip to Patagonia, Antarctica, the Amazon Basin and the Galapagos was marvelous; thanks to the knowledge, attention to detail and coordination provided by Shae (and Camilla) at Eclipse travel. We would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a hassle free travel experience!
Daryl & Sue from Dubbo, NSW
Most wonderful trip to three very diverse destinations. Everything went like clockwork, not one hitch in 5 weeks. A most memorable experience. Thank you so much.
Jan from Binalong, NSW
Not only did we have an amazing holiday embracing Buenos Aires, Antarctica, Patagonia and Santiago meticulously organised by Shae, but we also met Camilla, an Eclipse employee who was enjoying her own Antarctica adventure. Camilla was out front re-organising when our Antarctic embarkation was delayed due to a bad storm in Drake Passage. Camilla also volunteered to collect my “lost” iPad from Buenos Aires airport prior to her flight home and arranged courier delivery once we had returned. We are definitely returning to South America and will again use Eclipse’s expertise. Thanks again Shae and Camilla…you are wonderful ambassadors for Eclipse Travel.
Robin from Fadden, ACT
This is our second trip with Eclipse. It is great to travel as a couple but with the security of Eclipse’s local partners to ensure everything runs efficiently and smoothly.
Brian & Robyn from Queensland, QLD
We were really impressed with the entire trip that Eclipse organised for us. The guides and drivers were superb, the hotels nice and well located, the flights excellent, the itinerary and programme was exactly as we wanted, we couldn’t have got better , we will definitely be recommending this company for any South American travel – I’d love to go back again.
Evelyn from Baradine, NSW
So Happy I stumbled across Eclipse Travel when planning my trip to South America. The service and knowledge I received from Shae was 10 out of 10. Would highly recommend Eclipse Travel.
Karen from North Parramatta, NSW
Eclipse organised out tour of South America and it was brilliant. All tours, transfers, hotels were great. Our trip ran smoothly and I couldn’t have organised it myself any cheaper. Was fantastic. Thanks!
Britelle from Canning Vale, WA
Thank you Tim for another great itinerary. Patagonia is just beautiful and Antarctica on the Sea Spirit was a great adventure.
Sharon from Adelaide, SA
Our trip exceeded expectations in every way really. Thank you.
Maureen from Highland Park, QLD
You did an excellent job organizing our South America-Patagonia-Antarctica 27 day trip of a lifetime-thanks and we’d highly recommend you to others!
Kevin from Washington, USA
Lara was fantastic! Thanks to her, our trip to Cuba was incredible and without any problems.
Camilla from Sydney, NSW
We were thrilled with the planning that Richelle did for us and had the most wonderful holiday. All of the tour operators were exceptional and we were so well looked after. We will be recommending South America and Eclipse Travel to all of our friends.
Kate from Leabrook, SA
Eclipse organised me the trip of a lifetime to Antarctica! As a first time solo traveler I was slightly nervous, but Eclipse organised a smooth seamless travel arrangements. My agent Matt was always helpful and everything was arranged easily via an initial phone call and then email. I’d happily recommend them to anyone and would use them again.
Leanne from Sans Souci, NSW
Friendly and comprehensive service provided by the Eclipse team in Australia. Great package, well executed and supported in South America!
Paul from Toronto, NSW
Shae helped us organize a great holiday. Her good knowledge & travel experience in South America gave us an experience we will always remember.
Anne from Port Sorell, TAS
This was our first trip to South America and Eclipse Travel have made sure that it won’t be our last! The gorgeous accommodation, the wonderful guides, the tours/transfers and flights all went fantastically well. Thank you Tim for making sure our holiday was so amazing and memorable!
Sandra from Linfield, NSW
Cuba is a fascinating country and one I have wanted to visit for twenty years. It did not disappoint, it is an experience like no other country and I have visited many. The guide Rachel was always friendly organised and knowledgeable and made our visit very comfortable please pass on my thanks to him for his hard work and for delivering my avocado after I left it in his car. It was all good.
Billie from Woollamia, NSW
We organised our entire 5 week trip to Peru, Ecuador and Chile through Eclipse travel. We were met at every airport and transferred to our hotels without any problems or delays. Arrangements for the next day were always clear and precise – we always knew what time we were to be ready and who would be picking us up or taking us on our tours. Our guides for our activities were always punctual, very knowledgeable and spoke good English. We felt safe with our drivers and when we were checking in at airports or bus stations our guides took care of the process for us so we had no stress or problems with language. We were happy with all our accommodation over the course of our holiday including our stay at the Amazon – Napo Wildlife Centre was awesome, and our vessel for the Galapagos Islands – Galaxy yacht was excellent. Eclipse provided us with travel notes prior to the trip and they offered advice on what to pack, gave us an idea of how much to allow for meals which were not inclusive, a guide for tipping in South America and any airport taxes etc. They were very efficient and helpful with any questions we had while we planning our itinerary and also once it was all booked. Most of the time we communicated by email and replies were prompt and helpful. We had a wonderful holiday with no problems and I could not fault Eclipse Travel for their service. Thank you to Julio and Lara and all the team at Eclipse.
Janice from Moorooduc, VIC
A fantastic trip through Bolivia. Very well organised, great accommodation and local guides. Perfect for a single female traveller with the Salar de Uyuni the exceptional highlight!
Renah from Queensland, QLD
Great company to book through – I highly recommend this company!
Jill from Tamworth, NSW
We were extremely happy with our consultant Tiffany Chek, she went out of her way to assist us with much planning & very difficult flights to Spain, Copenhagem, Greenland, Iceland, Oslo, Tromso & Longyearbyen all to coincide with our Arctic expedition ship trip. Big thumbs up Tiffany!
Jennifer from Coolangatta, QLD
Tiffany from Eclipse Travel was so easy to communicate with in regard to all aspects of out trip arrangements. Tiffany followed up quickly whenever we had a question or were unsure. The travel representatives in South America enabled us to have a hassle free travel experience which is quite an accomplishment given all the potential hiccups that could occur. Our enjoyment and satisfaction were always the focus and it was pivotal to the success of our holiday.
Gary from Essendon, VIC
Our trip to Kenya, Tanzania, Victoria Falls and Botswana was a complete success. First of all, the itinerary was well designed and carefully planned thanks our travel consultant Ms. Shae Doherty at Eclipse. The hotels were very nice and had their lovely characters. There were so many excitements on the way, we saw all the big five and alot more. This is certainly a trip of a lifetime.
Yiqun from China, CHINA
Our whole trip was made very easy with the help of Eclipse, along with our local travel agent. Being met at Airports and driven to hotels was great. All the local guides were fantastic and very knowledgable regarding their countries. Thank you Eclipse and have / will recommend your Company to others
Margaret and Ian from New Zealand, NZ
We used Eclipse to explore Mexico and Cuba and could not be more satisfied. Our guides were excellent and our tour was well paced. We took one of the standard tours on their website and then customised it to what we wanted to do. Definitely recommended.
Peter from Sydnenham, NSW
Dear Eclipse team, I would like to take this opportunity and extend my warmest “THANK YOU” to your team for providing us the BEST tour ever!!! My husband and I have travelled in so many places and we have used different Tour agencies to organize our tour packages but YOUR SERVICES has SURPASSED them all. From the time we were planning, Stephen Lanfranco and Tiffany Chek have helped us plan everything and gave us the best advise. They have answered all our enquiries promptly and have ensured that we are happy with everything. During our trips, all the services that ECLIPSE organized and used are reliable, friendly, flexible and absolutely on time!!!! Specially our airport transfers and pick ups, they are always ON TIME and are already waiting!!!! The accommodations’ are also in ALL good locations except for El Calafate but they provide a shuttle to visit the business area- so still no problem. Absolutely stunning hotel though!!!! I have given my friends ALL GOOD words to your company and I will not be surprised if they contact you sooner rather than later. If you receive enquiries from Dental people, they are all my work colleagues and friends. Again, my sincere THANKS to everyone and CONGRATULATIONS for a job well done!!!
Rhodora from Kellyville, NSW
Our holiday booked through Eclipse Travel was wonderful. Everything went according to plan. Our guides were helpful and informative and generally looked after us very well. Time for sight seeing was balanced with opportunity to explore on our own. We have no hesitation in recommending Eclipse Travel.
Janis from Vermont South, VIC
We were very pleased with our experience with Eclipse. They took care of every detail for us, and that meant that we didn’t have to worry about anything while we were away. In a country where we didn’t know the language or culture, this was immensely important. Our consultant was responsive, knowledgeable and helpful at all times. I would absolutely recommend Eclipse to anyone looking for a complete package.
Tina from Berwick, VIC
We recently did a 23 Land Tour of South America with Eclipse. It was part of a 58 day holiday and set the scene for an unforgettable experience. Tiffany is an expert in her field and made suggestions to make the trip unforgettable. All of our guides were highly qualified and went the extra mile for us – no rushed crowds – just relaxed professionalism with warmth to match. Perhaps the most important issue was allowing enough time for us to adjust to different places and altitudes – no rush in, have a look, and fly out – we had time everywhere to enjoy our holiday location and consequently caught special moments such as a traditional babies’ naming/baptismal ceremonial on Easter Island with the whole clan present in traditional dress whilst in the Amazon we were able to pat sloths, have anacondas, bow constrictors and other creatures placed around my husband’s neck. We watched men push through reeds at twilight to find caiman, one crewman leaning out of the boat to catch smaller ones for us to hold and we also experienced a sudden very violent Amazon storm. I could go on but both Tiffany’s planning and Eclipse’s suppliers offer experiences that are second to none – we went to 7 locations and the service was excellent at all – one Guide opened doors for us that we could never have expected. Needless to say we had queries and requests in the planning stages but these were all handled with professionalism and our holiday was without incident or worry in any way. Eclipse gives excellent service and I would recommend them to any potential traveller for their patience, goodwill, and honouring delivery of services offered. Great company to work and travel with.
Kathy from Deagon, Brisbane
I couldn’t be happier with the efforts of Eclipse Travel in developing a South American holiday that catered for our tastes and fitted in with our budget. Mirko worked hard to modify the tour from the Eclipse brochure to better suit our requirements. This involved numerous emails back and forth until my desires were met. The result was really a trip of a lifetime, with no glitches and when discussing our itinerary with fellow travellers it became clear that we had made the right choice with Eclipse. Landing in a country where I had no language skills, it was always so reassuring to see a smiling face with our names on a board to greet us. Many of the transfers from the airports were significant distances and our drivers and guides made the most of that time to introduce us to Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador and Chile. Our accommodations were always close to the action, usually a short walk to most of the centre square of most towns. Our guides were always punctual and a lot of the time it was just my wife and I with our own guide, which enhances the experience. Our main focus for our holiday was seeing sites and nature away from cities and our visits to Iguazu Falls, the Sacred valley, Machu Picchu, Napo Wildlife Centre in Amazonia and the Galapagos Islands were all extremely well planned for us and consequently an absolute delight. Given the range of experiences we enjoyed, the number of flights and transfers we had, entrance fees, accommodation, meals and guides I’m really surprised that Eclipse could provide it all for the price that we paid. I’m so pleased that we went on this trip with Eclipse, as were some other Aussies that we met at Napo and I would recommend this company to anyone thinking of touring South America.
Stephen from Berrara, NSW
Our trip exceeded all our expectations and was most satisfying on all aspects. The quality of the hotels, the guides , drivers and added meals, shows etc were of the highest quality. Our trip was truly seamless in it’s organisation and in quality.
Tony from Swanbourne, WA
Tiffany did a brilliant job at short notice to organise a truly amazing and incredibly fun trip to Cuba. I loved every moment of every day.
Sheung from Fiji
Our six person tour group planned a life experience grand tour of seven South American countries with some nervous trepidation about safety, health and the general reputation of the area of travel. Our actual experience was devoid of such issues and our experience was indeed wonderful. Eclipse Travel displayed hands on local knowledge of every destination and their appointed pick up drivers and local guides were outstanding. We would recommend without reservation that you put your South American tour in the excellent hands of Eclipse Travel.
Allan and Eveleen from Canberra, ACT
We had a fantastic custom made holiday in South America. All the many transfers, tours and flights went perfectly with knowledgeable, friendly, English speaking, local guides. The holiday was very low stress due to eclipse’s faultless arrangements. Thanks to our consultant, Ad, the booking process was easy and Eclipse’s expertise became obvious with the standard of arrangements on the ground. Thanks for a fine trip.
Michael from Beecroft, NSW
Our itinerary, of necessity, included several internal flights. Eclipse appointed Agents punctually met us at all airports and were courteous. All tour Guides exercised initiative & did all possible to make the vacation a success. We particularly enjoyed the highlights in Brazil, Argentina & Peru and recommend travellers upgrade their Hotels in those locations. Thank you Eclipse
Ivan and Robin from Wahroonga, NSW
Patagonia – what a fantastic adventure Thank you Tim for such a great itinerary. This was our second fabulous Eclipse Experience Having confidence that your trip has been so well organised makes it so much more enjoyable.
Maureen from Bribie Island, QLD
I used Eclipse for a holiday to South America recently as I was finding the process a little daunting, trying to accommodate to my time restrictions. Shae was immediately reassuring. Assuring me she had experience and could coordinate everything in the required time. Promptly I had an itinerary emailed to me. The partner organizations overseas were of equivalent high standard. The hotels chosen were lovely, the guided knowledgeable, and transfers seamless. Using eclipse, really ensured our trip was a true holiday with no fuss.
Jenny from Haberfield, NSW
Eclipse Travel is rare in the travel business, as it actually added value and was reasonably priced.
Douglas from Alphington, VIC
Our trip to Patagonia despite some unexpected and unavoidable problems was fantastic. The organisation was very good and versatile enough to deal with the unexpected. Had a great time. Highly recommend Eclipse Travel. Our guide, Julieta, on the W track was an unexpected treasure. She quickly worked out our capabilities, dealt with some medical issues requiring an evacuation in a caring and compassionate way and had an expert knowledge of the geology that impressed my son who has a science degree and even tolerated my feeble attempts at Spanish. My impression was that Eclipse Travel know South America and what is required to meet their clients needs.
Steve from Tamworth, NSW
You were spot on with all that you put together, I only gave you limited time to put an itinerary together without ever dealing with me before you nailed what I needed. All the tour guides, drivers, hotels etc. were all fantastic with no issues encountered everyone we dealt with was happy to go that extra bit to help us when needed. So again Thank You and so want to go back and explore more of South America so when the time comes I will be in touch again.
Jodi from Croydon, NSW
We booked an extensive holiday to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala through Eclipse Travel and were very impressed by their service both before and during the holiday. They stayed in touch with us where appropriate throughout the trip. And a special thanks to Tiffany.
Jeffery from Cremone, NSW
Excellent service, Thankyou
Nancy from Cooks Hill, NSW
The recent experience I had with Eclipse Travel, especially Mirko, was painless and efficient. Mirko was very punctual when communicating, and so there was no delay in receiving information requested.
Elizabeth from Malak, NT
I would absolutely recommend using Eclipse. From the beginning our representative Shae was really accommodating and worked with my wife for quite some time to get an itinerary that fitted all of our requirements. We competed the first part of our itinerary the day trip around Santiago which we enjoyed greatly and then off to Peru. We loved Cusco and had the most amazing four days – truly stunning – EVERYTHING we did was interesting, entertaining and fun for us and the kids (11 and 13). Our guides Celia and Margot were wonderful. The accommodation was first rate – varied and really good. We all adored Peru – the culture, the People, the food, the history, the scenery – breathtaking. Sadly at the end of our Peruvian leg my daughter got sick and ended up in a clinic in Cusco. The medical care that was organised, the on ground care from Setours (Eclipse’s local partner) and the kindness from EVERYONE Eclipse/SET/The Marriott was simply outstanding. We had hotels extended, visits from our guides (and their lovely families), Teddy Bears and Flowers delivered to cheer my daughter up after her operation and frankly excellent healthcare from the surgeon all the way through to the post operative care. We then had flights organised back home, hotels en route, escorts through airports, wheelchairs and even a doctor’s visit at an airport hotel prior to the flight back from Santiago to Sydney. NOTHING and I mean NOTHING was left undone. We were totally blown away by how wonderful the service was – if ever there was a reason to use a specialist like Eclipse this was it. We would recommend anyone use Eclipse – Shae and Matt and the team are terrific. THANK YOU!!!!
Paul from Mosman, NSW
Can’t recommend high enough Stephen & Eclipse Travel for arranging last minute Chile high season Navimag Cruise and Torres Del Paine National Park W- Trek – documentation was superb, and communication while away. Had a disappointing experience with a travel agent for my previous years Argentina Holiday who pretended to know about South America, but Eclipse are South American specialists, and made the last minute short trip the best experience.
Craig from Carlton, VIC
Itinerary was well planned and we covered a lot of grounds in the 3 weeks we were in South America. The agents/contacts used in South America were very reliable which made our trip trouble free and memorable.
Suraya from Richmond, VIC
Shae at Eclipse Travel was absolutely fantastic! The recommendations and places she booked for us were amazing. Everything was so well organised for the trip, and her knowledge of Cuba was extensive and really helped us decide where we wanted to spend our time in Cuba. I highly recommend Shae at Eclipse Travel!
Jasmin from Newcastle, NSW
Tiffany was absolutely amazing . Nothing was ever any trouble . Will highly recommend Eclipse Travel
Cheryl from Wetherill Park, NSW
A well organised highly enjoyable South American trip. Can certainly recommend Eclipse and its partners if you want to travel to this part of the world. Brown Hill, Victoria
Mike from Brown Hill, VIC
From the first conversation I had with Tiffany at Eclipse everything fell into place. We wanted to see as much of South America as possible in a five week period, I told her where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do and she came back with the perfect itinerary. We had about 28 flights plus train and bus trips, at every stop we were met by excellent informed guides. In the whole five weeks covering six countries we never had one single thing go wrong, the whole trip was so well planned. We had an unbelievable bucket list trip which was made far more enjoyable because it ran so smoothly all we had to worry about was enjoying ourselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Eclipse Travel again, thank you for giving us the trip of a life time.
Briony from Mt Gambier, SA
Thank goodness we booked this trip through Eclipse. Their advice, planning, knowledge and guidance was excellent, faultless. It was a busy itinerary and we fitted in everything on our wish list and more. Accommodation always so well located and for budget level, was really comfortable, clean and with good breakfasts included. For all the inclusions in this trip it was truly excellent value and I am sure we couldn’t have done it on our own. Oh, mustn’t forget the tour guides! Can’t believe we had private driver and guide everywhere, and they were all so knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you to each and every one of them. And thank you to Tiffany from Eclipse – it was a fantastic adventure!
Rae from Malvern East, VIC
Amazing Best of South America trip for just 4 of us. Great tour guides and drivers who were very helpful and knowledgeable. Incredible sights and highlights all the way. Absolutely loved Rio, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Iguazu Falls, Macchu Picchu, The Amazon and so many other cities, rivers and adventures. So well organised and co-ordinated by Eclipse and special thanks to Tiffany who was ever- helpful.
Kaye from Malvern, VIC
A great experience that we thoroughly enjoyed except for the lost/stolen camera in Cusco. All the pick-ups and tours worked like clockwork. Would recommend to friends.
Frances from Bassendean, WA
Mirko did a fantastic job organizing our trip to Peru. All his suggestions were perfect for us. Everything ran like clockwork. All the guides and accommodation were just right for our needs. I have already recommended your company to a number of friends without hesitation. Keep up the great work!
Lesly from Queensland, QLD
We were very happy with the complete itinerary and price for the trip which Shae put together for us based on our request of places we wanted to visit. Everything went very smoothly, although a bit tiring at times due to the busy schedule. Allow a few extra nights if travelling through Peru by bus if you have time. Highlights of the trip were the Galapagos Islands and Iguazu Falls but everywhere was great. Hotels, tours, transfers etc all excellent. Many thanks!
Jan from Kangaroo Ground, VIC
A great experience with fantastic guides, well located and very comfortable accommodation. Loved our 8 days on the Eclipse in the Galapagos Islands and the Napo Wildlife Centre in the Amazon.
Glynn and Sue from Bonbeach, VIC
Our consultant at Eclipse, Mirko, put together the package we asked for. He told us what was possible and planned an itinerary that worked. Mirko also chose appropriate hotels for us to use, hotels that were conveniently located. Everything worked with no unexpected surprises. Well done. I would thoroughly recommend Eclipse and Mirko to friends and if ever I decide to go to Patagonia and Antarctica, I know which company I will choose to do my itinerary.
Ken from Bangor, NSW
Had an extremely well organised trip to South America, everything from flights,airport transfers and guides with expert local knowledge were all well organised and always on time. Thanks to the team at Eclipse Travel for organising such an amazing experience for us in South America. Would certainly recommend Eclipse Travel to anyone wishing to travel to South America.
Mark from Lockington, VIC
We enjoyed the trip very much, and it delivered everything as stated. many thanks to the entire team at Eclipse Travel.
Brian from Chermside, QLD
Mirko from Eclipse was very helpful and professional in organising my bolt on trip to Peru and Machu Picchu. His final check with me just prior to departure was very helpful as he alerted me to documentation required for another segment of my trip which my other Travel Agent had not highlighted. The services and agents on the ground in Peru were very good and helpful. I would certainly recommend Eclipse to my friends planning to visit South America. I wish I had booked through Eclipse for my whole holiday!
Christine from Mosman Park, WA
The Eclipse team were extremely professional and always very quick to answer any queries I had regarding my recent trip to South America. They provided all the information I needed and organised every aspect of my trip and followed up with all the small details. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the future.
Rachel from Lindisfarne, Tasmania
An extremely well organised and memorable trip.
Bruce from West Launceston, Tasmania
We had a very full and interesting trip across 4 countries with very complex travel and accommodation arrangements pre- ordered for us. Normally we would organise such details ourselves however it would have been beyond us to have self manage this tour especially as we speak no Spanish. Eclipse did a wonderful job pulling it together and coordinating agencies in each country ranging from airport transfers, city tours, boat/ rail and bus trips, and selection of an excellent Eco- lodge ( Napo Eco Lodge) and cruise boat ( Natalia 2 in the Galapagos Islands). We highly recommend Eclipse travel.
Stephen from Waverley, NSW
We had a great trip. All transfers went smoothly, and all Hotels were great. Thank you.
Andrew from Banora Point, NSW
Thanks Eclipse for organizing our amazing South American adventure. Everything worked and there were simply no problems – all we had to do was find out what time out next day started. Our locals guides were all very knowledgeable and helpful and most of the time our group of four was the entire tour group! Highlights were the incredible Macchu Picchu, our Amazon stay and Peru in general. Would not hesitate to get you to organize out next trip to Galapagos, Antartica and Patagonia :). Thanks again Tim & Co
Kaye from Clifton Beach, Tasmania
No other agency was interested in helping us tailor our specific interests into a unique itinerary. Mirko did it with us enthusiastically and our long, ambitious and complicated itinerary worked without a hitch.
Robert from Denistone, NSW
Everything went as planned, great effort, over 5 weeks and it was all done very professionally and with no effort from our side, well done Eclipse.
Angela from Mount Hutton, NSW
I had a wonderful time and felt safe with my contacts (hotels, drivers and guides). I met many lovely people on my way around South America and would recommended the experience to anyone, being single or multiple people. Thank you
Coralie from Guildford, NSW
The team at Eclipse were excellent. We got lots of information whenever we needed it and they answered all our queries. I’d happily refer Eclipse to friends and family.
Lily from Mosman, NSW
My husband and I did a 28 day trip to South America in July/August 2015 and we had a fantastic time. Mirko helped me plan our holiday, we used the 20 day Best of South America holiday and added extra days in certain places so we could do our own thing. We also added a day in Colonia which was well worth it, a lovely little town. It was also great to add the second day in Machu Picchu, the view never gets old. The trip to both sides of Iguassu Falls was amazing, well worth it. All the local tour guides and drivers were very nice and friendly also very knowledgeable. It was a fantastic holiday and we have family and friends already looking at booking with Eclipse. Well done.
Linda from Athelstone, SA
Clients could perhaps be made aware of the amount of walking on this tour. The cobblestone footpaths and hill climbing were underestimated by us. Did wish we were 20 years younger! But nevertheless better late than never and are so glad we did it. The almost individual attention with only 3 on the tour in the end was just wonderful. We felt like royalty.
Diane from Epping, NSW
Very easy to contact, prompt replies even when our main representative was on leave. Fantastic service overall.
Alison from Avondale Heights, VIC
Eclipse travel provided a brilliant service, everything went like clockwork. I would recommend them to anyone travelling to South America.
Dianne from Chiswick, NSW
We had an excellent trip. All bucket list items were seen. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
Vicki from Adelaide, SA
We no doubt will recommend Eclipse Travel to anyone, your professionalism and respond to queries is highly applause.
Colleen from Brisbane, QLD
Thank you for organising our trip of a lifetime so well.
Kate from Dianella, WA
The tour of Mexico and Cuba was very well organised by Eclipse Travel – all tours and transfers happened exactly on time, and all tour guides in both countries were knowledgeable and happy to improve my Spanish. Well done, Eclipse.
Anthony from Huntleys Cove, NSW
Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week trip to Mexico with Eclipse. The hotels, their locations, Ad’s service were first class.
Ashley from Sandringham, NSW
Eclipse Tours were fantastic to work with. From the moment we contacted Shae, we were given detailed information and options, and extremely prompt service. Our experiences in South America were varied and fascinating, and very relaxing. Just do it, you won’t regret the decision.
Karen from Rochedale South, QLD
Eclipse have chosen very professional and knowledgeable agents in each Central and South American country we visited which ensured our arrangements in each location worked very well. The quality of our private guides in particular added to our experiences. Additionally, our Eclipse agent who organised everything for us (Tiffany Chek) was able to deliver our expectations both during the planning and during the actual trip. We had some extra needs during the trip that Tiffany handled with both skill and speed resulting in minimal disruptions for ourselves. Happy to recommend Eclipse to others who want a well organised trip to Central and South America.
Robert from Doreen, VIC
Our South American experience was fantastic even better than we anticipated. From the time we left Australia till we got home everything went like clockwork. It was arranged perfectly with being meet at the airports, at the hotels seeing us settled and advising about tours and the next pickup. Highly recommend Eclipse Tours to one and all.
Carol from Greystanes, NSW
I was extremely happy with the customer service from Eclipse and wouldn’t hesitate recommending them. Matt was so prompt at answering all the questions we had. I couldn’t fault Eclipse. Many thanks.
Michelle from Brunswick, VIC
After being to over 60 countries, you think we would be hard to please, but Julio delivered the most exciting and adventurous trip we’ve ever done. Eclipse should be proud of the knowledgeable and attentive staff they employ. This includes the partner companies in South America such as guide Alexis in Santiago who was amazing, introducing us to the Lord Mayor and Senior prosecutor in Santiago, then serenading us with flutes and singing whilst in transit. Luiz in Rio was also great with his many ‘hidden secrets of Rio’. Rodrigo was also wonderful at Iguassu as was Connie in Buenos Aires. At Muyuna Amazon Lodge we had Julio who went to extreme lengths to get us within reach of the amazing wildlife. Congratulations again to Julio in Sydney for tailoring an excellent package that allowed an older couple to still experience such extremes as Machu Picchu, Iguassu Falls and the Amazon whilst still enjoying luxury hotels overlooking Copacabana Beach or Ivy Lodge jungle cabins.
Robert & Susan from Gregory Hill, NSW
We had a wonderful, eventful, three weeks around South America. Matt was first class in helping us tailor our itinerary. We had a few health related problems just before departure and Tim was excellent in making some last minute changes. The transfers were all well organized and the local tour operators generally of a high standard. All in all, Eclipse are a very professional, flexible and accommodating organization.

Eclipse Travel and their partners in South America provided us with efficient, helpful and totally reliable service which did much to make our trip a rewarding experience.
John from Cabarlah, QLD
We had almost a month in Peru and Ecuador arranged through Shae at Eclipse Travel. Our aim was to have our own individual itinerary but with guides/tours pre-arranged where we thought we’d need them, all just for my wife and myself. Eclipse were very good at helping plan our trip around exactly what we wanted, and during the trip the whole thing went absolutely seamlessly. I cant fault Eclipse’s arrangements and the professional companies they use in South America. We had an absolute blast from start to finish, and would highly recommend Eclipse for those who want things done the “right” way!
David & Diane from Cottles Bridge, VIC
I had a great three week trip to Chile. Brazil, Argentina and Peru. I was very impressed the organisation Eclipse offered. I was met at every airport, transferred to hotels and picked up for tours. All representatives were punctual, very knowledgeable and helpful. I selected hotels at the lower end of the scale and was impressed with the standard and location. I would definitely travel with Eclipse again.
Jeanette from Deinstone, NSW
Eclipse set up a wonderful tour for us of many of the most popular destinations in South America, including the Amazon Basin and Galápagos’ Islands. The itinerary was very busy and we saw and experienced a great deal in our 5 weeks. On the whole the local tour operators and guides were very good, but some are still learning the skills to look after foreign tourists. Overall it was a truly memorable tour which we enjoyed immensely, despite the altitude sickness in the Andes.
Kevin from Red Hill, VIC
We had a really great 6 weeks traveling through South America. We could not fault the planning and organisation that the team at Eclipse provided for us including flights, transfers, drivers and guides, hotels, etc. Traveling in South America can have its problems from time to time outside of control of Eclipse, like flight delays, changes to airline departure times, transport strikes, mechanical breakdowns, etc but Eclipse were excellent in assisting with rescheduling things wherever possible. The knowledge and experience of the Eclipse team in planning and organising South American holidays is second to none and we would have no hesitation in recommending Eclipse Travel to anyone wanting to travel there.

Barton from Kangeroo Valley, NSW
Eclipse travel were brilliant. Everything was organised so well and managed in such a professional manner. It was so fantastic to have so much organised for us eg: airport transfers, flights, train tickets and individual Local Guides who were so knowledgable about their City, regions and various ancient sites. Thank you Eclipse Travel for helping make our South American trip so wonderful.
