TESTIMONIALS

David & Linda
Great Trip!
Thank you to Eureka Travel and Analia for putting together a stress free trip to Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. Everything went smoothly and with all our bookings taken care of, we were able to enjoy our trip without the hassles of traveling! Thanks again! David and Linda
Sandy G. & family
We used Eureka travel to go to Easter Island and then to Chile over the holiday season to watch our son play soccer in an International tournament. Analia and her staff were absolutely unbelievable. We travel extensively and Eureka travel agency was perhaps the BEST we have ever experienced. Not only did she and her staff work hard to find us the best and cheapest flights (which they did), she helped find us reservations at a hotel that initially was booked. Given that we spent a lot of time at the soccer tournaments and we were unclear about our schedule, she was extremely flexible and never pressured us into planning side trips. In addition, we later learned that our college aged son was going to continue traveling on to Peru and she gladly found him flights and helped organize an itinerary. Our return flight was delayed and we knew we would miss our connection back to California. We quickly texted Analia to see if she could arrange for us to get on a new flight which she did on her own time, well after business hours. She continued to stay in touch to make sure we made our new flight and even to make sure we landed safely home! I would give Analia and her staff the absolute highest rating possible. They are attentive, extremely knowledgeable and completely honest. We plan on using their services again as soon as we plan another trip.

Sandy & her family traveled to Chile in Dec 2015

I cannot express how pleased I am with Eureka Travel. As I was developing the plans for the trip, they were helpful with suggestions and accommodated all my requests. The transportation to and from airport, hotel, tours was excellent. The guides were very, very good. The lunch and dinner provided w/tour were excellent. Your help made our trip a wonderful experience. Also, when I was unable to call the local contacts (b/c my inability to get country codes,etc figured out) I could always email/call directly to your U.S. office for assistance. you helped solve any problems right away. Will definitely use Eureka Travel again when we return to Peru.
