You did a great job -we loved it

You did a great job -we loved it, all went well The tour company in Buenos Aires did their job well and were really nice to us. All and all we were really happy. I think you can safely recommend the hot springs and spa. We were the only English speakers there and it had great food and nice accomodations. The scenery is awesome. Mendoza was nice, hotel was fine the NH and the shopping was much much better as far as prices were concerned there. Thanks again. Best, Melanie

We had a great time.

The bottom line is all went VERY well. We had a great time. Thanks for your help. We would certainly recommend both Yampu Tours / Kon Tiki and Easter Island to anyone. The Vouchers were waiting for us at the Hotel in Santiago when we arrived. The last time we were in Santiago was 1973. As you may recall those were not good times for the Chilean people. Again best wishes and many thanks,
