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.
