The saying, “There is no substitute for experience,” definitely applies to travel.
The insight and knowledge we have comes from our personal experiences, living and traveling throughout the length and breadth of South America. We have roughed it out and luxed it up in all of the destinations we feature; sampled the cuisine, and gotten familiar with everything from local events to weather patterns.

Along with experience, we bring a deep love and passion for these magnificent countries and cultures. Eureka Travel is very much a family affair. The idea for Eureka Travel was born in early July 2004 while Analia Rupar-Przebieda, an Argentinian native, was traveling with her future husband, Darek, to Eureka Sand Dunes in Death Valley, a special place for them. They had been talking about Analia having her own travel agency for quite some time, but while visiting this beautiful spot they had their “Eureka!” moment. It was time. A few weeks later on her birthday, Darek told Analia he had reserved the domain name on the web as a gift. Now that’s 21st century love! His belief was the spark that set Analia in motion, and they began to work, determined to make Eureka Travel a reality. She was open for business in the fall of 2006.

The family spirit has only grown as Analia’s sister Cecilia became involved and joined the team in 2011. Cecilia hold a bachelor degree in Tourism. With similar hotel and tourism background as her younger sister, and her home base being Argentina, she naturally fits into the company as the main contact in South America. As a native and an avid traveler, she is an invaluable source of information to our clients and her presence in the area assures them that they will be looked after for the duration of their trip.

We have a passion for helping our clients discover this amazing continent for themselves, from the sights, to the flavors, to the delightful people. We provide customized travel packages because we want you to enjoy your South American trip in your own way, and at your own speed.

At Eureka Travel we create an authentic level of experience like no other – the vibrancy of the food, wine, landscapes, and wildlife – are presented in ways that make for unforgettable memories. We specialize in South American travel because we can offer the world in a single continent – every kind of experience imaginable: soccer, polo, fashion, architecture, café society and antiquing, glacier hiking, tortoise and penguin watching, waterfalls, and wine. Whatever you want – you will find it in South America.
