Just wanted to let you know that we had the most fabulous holiday in Brazil and much of it was down to your careful planning and attention to detail.Miss Otway
The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic. Mrs Hilary Reid
Peru was definitely one of the highlights. On a tour such as the Grand Tour of South America there will be many highlights. One of the unexpected real highlights for me were the rail journeys in Peru. PeruRail are fantastic and the three rail journeys we took were amazing. Great fun, well organised and very good quality trains and staff. Mrs Claire Lawley-Woods
