TESTIMONIALS

Frank & Alejandra Moll
Eureka Travel has booked two trips for my wife and I, one to Italy and the other to Argentina. It was the best experience we have had with any travel agency so far. We feel this way primarily because Analia\'s personal touch, high attention to detail and hands on approach with her clients and not just relying on voicemail and emails.
We will use Eureka Travel for all our future trips and recommend it highly.

Analia and Eureka Travel were excellent! Analia had great ideas and was extremely responsive in helping us plan the trip. She returned emails and phone calls quickly and was on target with her ideas. We had almost zero problems on the trip with all transitions occurring very smoothly. Once or twice when we had a concern, we called and she helped solve the problem.

Analia recommended the homestay in Lago de Titicaca and that was memorable. A real high point!

I would have loved to have added a few days, if only we had the time. It would have been great to trek into Canyon de Colca but we didn't have time.
I also would have loved to have seen Valparaiso and more of Chiloe… maybe next time.

Paul & Renee from NYC traveled to Peru, Amazon area, Cuzco, Titicaca, Arequipa & Colca, and in Chile to Puerto Varas & Chiloe, Atacama desert and Santiago.

Analia, our Brazil travel agent was amazing and willing to do anything meet our needs.
Very pleased with tailored trip and price was very good compared to similar quotes.
If something wasn't available she offered helpful suggestions without pressuring you into a choice. Always available to answer any questions.
This is first time I have used an agent and I would Highly recommend.

Wonderful service and wonderful trip!
Eureka Travel has given my wife and me superb service in planning our recent vacation trip to South America including Brasil, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru and Bolivia. Analia Ruper-Przebieda and her sister Cecilia in Argentina have given us expert and attentive
service in planning our nearly 3 week trip, including booking the flights, and our trip and contacts at each site worked out very well with a couple of minor glitches that I don\'t think were really significant in the whole scheme of things. I would recommend
Analia and her firm for anyone else planning such an adventurous trip!

Michael traveled to South America in 2013
