Trip: If I'd realised how many steps there were in Valparaiso, I would have stayed in Santiago for the day, as I've no interest in wineries, which was the other stop. The highlights for me were the visit to La Bamba ranch, Iguassu Falls and Rio. The lowlights were the tango and samba shows as I couldn't stand the noise. I sent an email to Alan Cook at destamer.com with my comments, emphasising that they weren't intended as criticism of the company or its employees.
Service: The travelling concierge, Roberto, was excellent, as were the local experts. When our luggage was left in Santiago after our flight to Buenos Aires, Roberto dealt with the situation very well.

Trip: I chose this tour for the itineray and the desist was going.
Service: Overall my experience was very good. I liked the international diversity of our tour group. I would like it better if there was a limit on the size of the group. When I called the friday before the tour started, the call center said she didnt know for sure but there might be 35 people in the group that was shocking for the price of the tour. As it turned out there was only half that. Didn't like the visa contractor unbundling all the charges and have disputed some of them through my credit card.
