Hi Nick and Holly
We just wanted to say a very big thank you to you both for helping us to arrange and organise a really memorable trip.
All our Airport transfers were perfect and it was a treat to be met at the different Airports and driven to our Hotels.
We loved Buenos Aires and the Hotel Classic was perfect, staff very friendly and helpful.
The location was good breakfasts nice and we would definitely recommend it.
By the way we did 2 cycle tours to the North and South of the city, it was a real fun way to see the different areas, the cycling was easy and we had fabulous informative and caring guides, the company was BA bikes - highly recommended.
Next stop Bariloche, the hotel Charming was excellent, breakfasts and restaurant very good.
The location and accommodation was very good, fantastic setting right on the lake and again would highly recommend this hotel.
By the way we got a free upgrade on our last night to a superior room with dry sauna and Scottish steam shower.
Pleased we didn't stay in the town.
We did a seven lakes tour organised thro the hotel, was great.
Here unfortunately we felt the hotel was very isolated and too far from the centre.
The hotel itself had lots of character and the food was good, but was definitely too far out for us. We visited the Maam museum which was very interesting.
The 2 day tour was fabulous, we shared with a couple from Zurich and our guide Raul Zanotta was excellent, his English was perfect and he was very informative , we saw Incredible scenery and Raul really went out of way to stop and show us wonderful sights.
The Hotel in Purmamarca was fine, perhaps we could have been a little closer to the town centre but was a lovely setting.
Next was Iguazu, the falls are amazing and we loved the Lois suites right in the jungle.
The Argentinian side tour was excellent, our guide was Gustavo and although we weren't too happy about getting up so early, it was best as we got there before all the crowds.
The Brazilian tour was also excellent our tour guide was Maria .
The wedding was lovely in Florianopolis and our friends had arranged coaches and we were well looked after.
Final stop Rio, the Sofitel in Copacabana was great and the location was superb.
The staff were super friendly and in fact we were able to keep,our room till 5.00 pm on the day of departure.
We also did a Favela tour arranged thro the hotel, it was a Jeep Tour and our guide was David Santos, he was excellent and it was a real eye opener to see how the people live in the Favelas. The favela was called Rochino
We did a full day tour on the Friday before we left with Rodrigo the guide who collected us from the Airport when we first arrived.
I think we saw and did everything, Rodrigo also went out of his way to show us around.
It was a really fabulous holiday and once again many thanks.
We might add that the drivers who took us to the Airports for onward flights were extremely helpful and saw us up to the departure desks.
Mike and I wish you both and your respective families a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
Mike and Jennifer
