TESTIMONIALS

Dana Ferguson
Eureka tavel met my needs for the perfect honeymoon & more. Analia was great from the start, in meeting my needs & adjusting where needed.

Always prompt response! Once on our way Cecilia helped me re-arrange things when my visa needed extending, again helping us out at every point! Once we arrived in Brazil, after a bump in the road with group travel, we were at our destination in Buzios, Brazil-AMAZING! We loved the recommended boutique hotel Casas Brancas & would go back in a heartbeat, the people were friendly & views were incredible! We visited at least 10 different Beaches.

We continued on to Rio & enjoyed the planned tours that Analia reccomended & were really great! Eureka travel has great taste & really care about your vacation! Can\'t wait till our next South American trip, we will definately go with Eureka!
Steve C. From California
We used Eureka Travel to plan a 21 day trip for 6 adult friends to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. We all had a fantastic time, and have nothing but good things to say about Analia and the people at Eureka. When we began planning the trip, Analia was very helpful and responsive as we went through the various iterations about exactly where we were going and what we were going to see and do. The final itinerary was very clear and we had a phone conversation to go over each day of the trip to ensure that I knew exactly what to expect. All 6 of us shared the same itinerary in Chile and Argentina, but we went separate ways once we reached Brazil. Analia was very accommodating and helpful in making the different arrangements for all of us on the Brazil portion of the trip.

Once the trip began, we were all very pleased with the design of the itinerary (where we were, how many days we spent there, what we did, etc). Analia and Cecilia (who lives in Argentina) were both very responsive to the questions or issues we had along the way (there were very few). All of our accommodations were first rate and in great locations. All of our transportation was extremely well coordinated - the drivers and tour guides were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. We had at least 7 or 8 different tour guides in the different locations throughout the trip, and they were all incredible, with excellent English, local knowledge, and interpersonal skills.

Of course there were a few glitches along the way, but they were all quickly handled with a text, phone call, or Email. We have nothing but praise for Analia and Eureka, and would definitely use them again or recommend others to plan their holiday to South America.

Steve and his friends traveled to Chile, Argentina & Brazil in March 2018.

"The trip was excellent and Eureka Travel did an excellent job matching the itinerary and activities to our interests.

The most enjoyable part of the trip were the two days in the Amazon. It is a remarkable experience, unlike any other.

If you could take your trip again, what would you do differently?
More time in the Amazon, at a remoter lodge with more 'authentic' (less touristy) activities. Less time in Rio and Manaus (one day is more than enough in Manaus), more structured and less free days.Include a candomble ceremony."

My trip to the Galapagos and Chile
My husband and I just returned from a three-week vacation in the Galapagos and Chile. This is the second trip I have taken that was organized by Eureka Travel. Last year we spent a month in Argentina. This year as last year, everything went perfectly smoothly. Eureka Travel is run by two sisters: Analia and Cecilia. They are Argentineans and have traveled South America extensively. They know what works and what doesn\'t. Our trips have been smooth, without a hitch. I have worked with Analia. She makes everything happen. I tell her what experiences I want, where I want to go, how much I want to spend and how much time I want to give the trip. The Galapagos and southern Chile (Patagonia) is so interesting. Of course, we saw huge turtles and actually swam with a sea lion who swam all around us just playing, in the Galapagos. The hotels and the guides are wonderful. We usually travel one day, go on an excursion another day and goof off one day. Then on to another site. We visited, as I said, the Galapagos, Torres del Paine National Park, took a four day cruise on a freighter through the Chilean fiords and visited national parks in the area. We hike (to a volcano and to a 3,000 year old alerce tree), we rest, we eat, we learn, we read, we enjoy, we talk to people. I can recommend Eureka Travel without reservation and will certainly travel with them again. After all, South America is a big continent.
