“Fantastic Experience with Jacada!”
The experience with Jacada was absolutely fantastic. All of the hotels, restaurants and planned activities were exceptional and top quality. The guides were all extremely personable and helpful every step of the way. Moreover, the logistics were all completely seamless as we never for a moment had any questions or issues in getting anywhere. In fact, even when one or two minor unanticipated issues popped up, the team worked quickly to revise the plans to ensure we weren't in any way inconvenienced. Overall, my wife and I were extremely impressed and we would highly recommend Jacada to anyone who is seeking help with their travel planning.

“Jacada for future trips- oh yes.”
Jacada created and executed an amazing trip to Peru for 3 of us. All travel arrangements and transitions were seamless. More than that, the people who greeted us and managed the reservations etc., weren’t just efficient, they were genuinely gracious both enlightening our travel experience and making us feel immediately welcome and at ease. The hotel choices were top notch, each with special qualities, such as Sol at Luna’s horse stables and magnificent Sacred Valley setting. The private guides not only knew their subjects but, but came to know us and our personal areas of interest. All of the guides were appealing individuals and we enjoyed our time with them immensely. We feel the work done ahead of the trip by Lily, Berni and others at Jacada laid the groundwork for all this success. Their pre trip consultation was excellent. We thank them for a truly great Peruvian experience. How can you not appreciate finding personal notes from your travel person when you arrive at a new destination?

“AWESOME 20th anniversary trip to South America”
My Wife and I normally do our own self driving tours around the world but decided to celebrate our 20th anniversary in South America with the help of Jacada travel. It turned out to be the absolutely correct choice as Jacada produced a fantastic itinerary for us. We had a blast of a time in Lima, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and Chile. Jacada also managed to secure hard to get reservations at the TOP restaurants in the world like Central and Maido. Every hotel we stayed at was TOP notch and we had private guides with us at EVERY stage of our 18 day holiday, including helping us check into all our hotels plus checking in for ALL our flights. Yes, the prices are not exactly cheap but for what we got, it was TOTALLY worth it. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend Jacada if you are looking for a private tour in South America.

My family's experience with Jacada was wonderful! Our recent trip to Peru (Sacred Valley- Machu Pichu-Cusco-Lima) was seamless and virtually stress-free, thanks to Lily's able assistance on the front-end and Jacada's team on the ground in-country. Lily's suggestions and recommendations in trip planning were spot on. The accommodations were wonderful; our guides (especially Juan Carlos) were great; and the daily activity level and duration were just right for our multi-generational family of 5 (ages: 13-70). This was our first experience with Jacada, and I anticipate we will be repeat clients.

“Great time, but one frustration”
This a great company and would have received 5 stars (excellent planning, great local guides, first class accommodations) except for the following:
The tour promised that at each stop we would be greeted by a Jacada rep with a sign with our name on it. This worked perfectly except for our arrival in Iquitos for the start of our Amazon cruise where we were unable to find any signs with our names or Jacada's.
After waiting a half hour outside the terminal, we decided to call the 24-7 emergency numbers provided by Jacada - NONE OF THEM WERE ANSWERED.
We were finally rescued by the cruise line employees who,unbeknownst to us, were desperately searching for us. The frustration could have been avoided if we had been told to look for the cruise guides instead of a Jacada rep.
Despite the above, both Nancy and I had a great vacation and have no problem recommending Jacada to anyone seeking a first class adventure.

My parents and I were looking to make memories and all of the travel advisors at Jacada as well as the guides and travel arrangements they booked for us were amazing and truly memorable! We went to Peru and Argentina. Every guide was knowledgeable and catered to our every need. Every hotel was comfortable and with beautiful views. Another thing I want to point out - we always had someone we could call and talk to with questions before, during and after. Plus, they surprised us with a level of comfort, great tours, and even a dinner reservation at one of the world's best restaurants. I couldn't recommend them more!

We are very glad we went with Jacada versus a local travel agency. We were a little weary of communicating over the phone and via emails, but the Jacada group have the experience first hand of going to the countries, places, even restaurants you want to visit, and I think with this approach, we knew exactly what we were getting out of a trip because Jacada knew exactly what they were giving. The trip itself was amazing and everything seemed to be taken care of for us. This allowed us to just enjoy our surroundings. So great!

“Perfect three-week tour of Peru and Ecuador”
We just returned from a three-week trip to Peru and Ecuador arranged by Jacada. While we normally schedule our own travels, we wanted to see Machu Picchu, the Amazon rainforest, and the Galapagos and knew we needed help. After reviewing several companies, we decided on Jacada because of its experience, positive reviews, and responsiveness. We found Jacada to be outstanding in all regards, from planning to execution. Our representatives were Emily and Suzann who were very knowledgeable about South America and who provided detailed information on transportation, guides, hotels, restaurants, and excursions. They also were exceptional in helping us determine a budget and offering options that would meet it. For example, we really wanted to stay at the Sanctuary Lodge at Machu Picchu and have a suite for our Galapagos cruise (both pricey) and were perfectly happy to stay at a Marriott or Hilton in other cities at a lower cost. Both Emily and Suzann kept in constant touch during the planning process, responding immediately with emails or phone calls. They even got us restaurant reservations in Lima at Central and Maido (5th and 8th in the world, respectively). The trip turned out to be perfect in every way. Our tours were fantastic, and our drivers and guides were outstanding, always prompt, very friendly, and helpful. This was particularly important during challenging times, such as the 6-hour delay from Machu Picchu due to a landslide on the train tracks; Adrianna and Antonio were there waiting for us and smiling and got us to Cusco at 2am! Emily and Suzann also kept up with us during the trip with small notes at the hotels and a lovely gift of alpaca scarves. Because of the attention to details and overall quality of the trip, we would not hesitate to book with Jacada again and highly recommend it.

All the Jacada people were great to be with. They assisted us from the planning through to the execution of our journey. The home office people were very knowledgeable in setting up our travel plan and the guides and drivers got us to all the places and informed us well regarding the sights.
Machu Picchu was the center point of our adventure and the assistance of our guide Nilo made it every bit of our expectations and then some.
Visiting the Sacred Valley in advance of M P gave reference to the role and life of the Inca nation and made the visit to MP much more worthwhile.
Also, feeding the baby Alpacas that morning was great fun........
As an added bonus to our trip, we were set up with a cooking class in Cusco that was fantastic for us. Peruvian cuisine organized by a master chef and then able to enjoy it all was our best meal of the trip.

“Jacada was amazing. So organized, never missed a beat!”
George organized a tour for us which was absolutely suited to our needs. Not only did he put this together, but he did so on very short notice after another tour company cancelled our tour on quite short notice. From the time we arrived at our home airport in Toronto at the start of our vacation, until the date that we arrived at our leaving airport in Quito, Ecuador, at the end of our vacation, George organized this tour every step of the way. Not only were the drivers and tour guides on time and extremely helpful, but George himself arranged to leave notes and treats for us along the way to greet us as we arrived at each of our destinations. These extra "goodies" were unexpected but surely provided my wife and I with much pleasure and delight. I would not hesitate to recommend Jacada to others and, in fact, I have already done so in the first week following my return from vacation. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

We just returned from our second trip, planned by the team at Jacada Travel. Once again, the overall experience was exceptional. No detail is lost by their team. We felt we were in very good hands, during our entire trip. We spent 20 days in Peru, including the physical challenge of hiking the Inca Trail. Our guide made changes on the fly, to accomodate my difficulty with the altitude, without which I probably would have been forced to turn back. With his experience and knowledge, I was able to successfully complete the hike. There is so much work that happens before departure, seriously, they think of everything. Thanks once again. I have and will continue to highly recommend Jacada Travel.

We traveled for two weeks in South America. Starting in the lovely historical city of Quito, we knew we were in for a treat. Jacada handled every detail of our travel, pick-up, hotel, touring, restaurant experiences, etc. flawlessly. They transferred us to the next part of our trip, the Galápagos Island cruise without a hitch. We enjoyed five days on the Santa Cruz II, which offered superior service, excellent accommodations, as well as wonderfully prepared
food, and well educated, knowledgeable guides. You could not ask for more.
Once we retuned to land we were back in Jacada's capable hands as we flew to Peru. We continued to explore the land and history of the Inca people. Everywhere we visited, each hotel we stayed in, each guide who lead us was exceptional. I have traveled extensively in my life but have never felt so worry free on a trip before this time. I would not hesitate to recommend Jacada to any traveler looking for a first class experience, worry free, on their vacation. I would give them 6 stars.

“trip of a lifetime”
Having given an outline of what we wanted to see and do, the centerpiece being to take the Hiram Bingham train and stay at Sanctuary Lodge in Machu Picchu, Jacada ( Ciara Owens in particular) gave us excellent advice and put together a fabulous experience. The hotels were wonderful. The pacing of the trip and the private guides arranged for us were exceptional We had time to absorb what we were visiting and enjoyed the services of very open, knowledgeable, flexible, well informed and personable guides. There were extras in addition to the sights we wanted to see. One guide planned a 'picnic' for us, unlike any I have ever had. A tent, with rugs, cushions, facing snow covered mountains, and delicious Peruvian foods, catered by a charming young couple from Cusco. Edgar also took us to an animal rescue where we saw a spectacled bear cub, orphaned and just 6 months old, a baby vincuna, and condors up close and personal. We had a visit to a family farm high in the Andes and learned how they work the fields, and prepare and spin wool into those marvelously inticate weavings. Sheep to loom and finished products, plus a home cooked meal with 4 shy and curious, proud and happy women and a 5 month old baby. In their home. Travel connections were well planned and booking taken care of by our guides. Everything ran so smoothly! When we wanted to see the Ice Maiden in Ariquipa, which had not been on our itinerary, Jose provided extra time for us to do this and a personal tour of the exhibits. He also took us to visit a local one-room school in the Andes which was eye opening in terms of how the indigenous people live. And included a birthday cake and song for my travel partner. The 2 students who showed up that day, of the 21 who may travel up to 3 hours to get there on any given day, work and weather permitting, clearly found us rather exotic and were thrilled to be given the little cake our guide had secretly brought along. Very touching. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Our journey was tight with many early flights to catch (new year's day at 4 am). Assistance to ensure breakfast is available at check out desk at early hours; guide in attendace to ensure assistance on check in in crowded and non english speaking airline ground staff is taken care off are some of the small things that makes the difference in our travel experience. Of course getting the best rooms at the best hotel/resort repeatedly is another crown to Jacada! I think it is not only about money that you paid but the extra effort that you could feel that makes the difference. In my view in areas where they have control, they have done exceptionally well. Highly recomended and thanks to Jennifer!

Emily Opie who was our travel consultant did an outstanding job. Lima, Sacred Valley, Cusco and of course Machu Picchu were outstanding experienced. The guides, the food, the accommodations were all wonderful.

“A very organized, friendly, professional travel agency for those who want luxury travel.”
This is the second time that we have used Jacada Travel, and we could not be more pleased with the professionalism and attention that we have received. Both trips to South America were well planned and came off without a hitch. Even when there was a miner strike in Peru, the agency took care of us beautifully.
Thank you, Jacada.

“Very good to work with and organised a great holiday”
George worked with us to prepare and execute a fantastic trip to Peru where we saw fantastic sights.
The trip was very well organised and went faultlessly. The hotels were excellent and the food was excellent throughout.
The itinerary was well thought out and took account of the altitude in such a way that we did not suffer from it at all.
The guides were very good and made the sites and museums come alive in a brilliant way.
All done in a very cost effective way compared to the opposition.

“Jacada Travel, we're extremely efficient and looked after our every need throughout our stay in Peru.”
We had an awesome holiday and packed a lot into 20 days with moves by plane, rail or coach every 3 days. Everything was organised for us everywhere with minimal delays throughout. The Hotels were excellent and to the standard we expected. All the guided tours were brilliant, very informative and a must in certain areas especially Lima where we visited sites that would not have been obvious to the average tourist. We visited Lima, Puerto Maldonado , Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu , Hirham Bingham (superb) , Cusco , Andean explorer, Lake Titikaka, Colca Lodge Colca Canyon , Arequipa and finally Lima. A really memorable trip.

“A perfect Honeymoon in Peru”
Published 22nd May 2014 on TrustPilot
We are so glad we went to Argentina, and equally pleased that Jacada was our guide.
Positives: The right amount of time on our own and with the guide, just my husband and myself instead of a group of strangers traveling with us,fabulous food, small boutique hotels, local guides, and best of all: very customized to our wishes and interests.

“They were the only agency to actually LISTEN to what we wanted for our travels.”
Emily heard what we wanted, sent us choices, asked questions, gave advice and in four short days our plans were finalized. So nice to work with someone so professional. Everything on our trip was exactly as presented, no mistakes, mis communication, excuses. Really nice to have such a great experience. And they follow up all along the way, really a quality experience.

“Ecuador and Peru perfect from the very beginning ....”
When our intention to visit the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu became more concrete, I started to search the internet for travel agencies and stumbled across Jacada. After I sent an e-mail on a Sunday afternoon, neither did I expect to receive a first call only hours later, nor a complete first draft itinerary few days later. What followed were very professional communications with the Jacada representative, great advise and suggestions upon hotels and sight seeing options to get everything we wanted on our schedule, but even more we could imagine. Being a critical customer, after that perfect start with planning, I was very curious how the promises would be turned into delivery, which in my opinion is the only thing that counts. Now after having returned from a 3.5 weeks trip I can confirm: All promises were kept and our high expectations on a luxury travel provider were fully met! Top hotels everywhere, a great cruise through the Galapagos Islands, experienced and knowledgeable guides in Ecuador and Peru, and the feeling of being taken care 100% every day of our tour made the difference for us. Having met other many other travellers with problems with the altitude in Peru, we really appreciated the sequence Jacada put together for us (Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Lake Titikaka), so we could enjoy every moment at these places. Personal letters and individualised additional suggestions for visits restaurants etc. at each of our stops just topped all the selections. Honestly, I was a little bit sceptical about travelling with a tour itinerary only and not the usual booklet with a number of tickets and vouchers (which in our case with all the different hotels, transfers and visits would have been rather thick), but everything was prepared optimal; we did not have to care about anything. Well, as a summery: When ever we will be travelling to places Jacada is represented, they will be our only service provider.

“Jacada delivers on their promise of luxury travel with personalized trips, trust them, use them you will be thrilled!”
I came across Jacada while searching the web for luxury vacations in Peru. I honestly was not familiar with the company so I did a bit of research and found them to be a well rated and very reputable firm so I proceeded to work with them.
I've reached a point in my life (50's) where I am willing to spend a bit more to ensure I have more upscale accommodations, personalized / private tours, and a well thought out itinerary that reflects my interests and affords me the opportunity to make changes along the way (e.g. starting the tour an hour later, spending less / more time at a place depending on my level of interest, etc.).
Jacada is just the place to arrange such a trip. From the beginning, George, our "Director of Travel Design" worked with us inquiring about our likes, dislikes (e.g. city vs. countryside, types of foods we like, activity level and interests, etc.). From there he proceeded to develop a detailed itinerary that we further fine tuned. He also provided extremely helpful guidance on the timing of flights (to avoid issues with fog, etc.) that demonstrated a high level of detailed knowledge of where we were traveling. This expertise became even more evident as our trip progressed and all the well orchestrated pieces of our trip flowed smoothly together. George had a knack for knowing when we would need a break and built that into the trip, but also ensured we were situated in hotels that could easily and cheerfully facilitate relatively spontaneous requests like "we would like to go on a horse back ride today" or please get us a taxi to the ruins of Ollantaytambo (both of which we did!).
The planned private tours on the trip were provided by absolute top notch guides. They knew their profession, country and sites and really made you feel welcome and ensured the tour was meeting your expectations. In fact one day my wife was feeling a bit off and the guide immediately said lets go the pharmacy and get her an electrolyte drink (which was what she needed!). He proceeded to go in and buy it for us as it was clear his concern was for her well being. His quick thinking and generous nature allowed us to enjoy a tour that otherwise might have been quite miserable. When we wanted to start a tour an hour later (which we did a couple of times) we simply asked, they made a quick phone call and all was set (one of the beauties of a private tour!).
The accommodations were all at a minimum excellent and a couple were truly outstanding with one being the nicest hotel room I have had in my life - and I have traveled a bit for work and pleasure and stayed at some nice places in Europe, Asia, South America and the US.
The sites we saw were all terrific and indeed reflected what we had shared our interests were. Having the private guide allowed us to tune them as we went along, for example at the Maras salt ponds we decided to walk through them and take about a 1/2 hour hike down the mountain (with our guide) to meet our driver vs. simply jumping back into the van. Had we wanted to not take the hike that was OK too.
The entire trip was nearly flawless in terms of execution and meeting expectations, though we did have two relatively minor glitches, and in many ways how these were handled speaks volumes to the quality and reputation of Jacada. The first happened when one of our in country flights was a bit early. I could not find our guide. I called the local contact provided by Jacada, who immediately picked up the phone, assured me the driver was there and asked me (while staying with me on the phone) to look again. Sure enough I quickly found our guide. The issue seemed to be that our flight was (as mentioned) early so while he was likely there he just had not gone to the greeting area early. Had the flight been on time this would likely not have been an issue, but it does demonstrate that Jacada had planned for such things and ensured I had a contact.
The second minor issue was our tour at Machu Picchu was listed as a private tour but we ended up in a small group (5 people). While I didn't think much of it at the time, I casually mentioned this to George upon our return, he investigated, indicated it was a mistake and promptly provided us a refund for that tour, now that is integrity!
There is no doubt Jacada is a first class operation to be trusted. And while the tours they arrange are "luxury" they are not what I would call obnoxiously expensive. Sure they are a bit more than being carted around on a bus with 30 other people and staying at mass market OK hotels, but the benefit of doing it through Jacada is a tour that is yours, providing a personalized experience and the flexibility to make it meet your needs and wants as you go along.
Arrange your next holiday with Jacada - you will be glad you did!

We had an incredible trip to hike the Inca Trail and visit Machu Picchu via Jen Richt at Jacada Travel. From our tours in Cusco, to all of our transfers and the amazing experience at Enigma Tours (the trek)....we were completely taken care of!

“Live Up Its Promise of Personalized Luxury Travel”
It was going to be the first time for me and my father to South America, and I stumbled upon the name "Jacada Travel" in many articles and thought of checking it out. The website did enough impression to make me decided to contact them.
Since that moment, I have been very taken care of by my travel designer, [Name] Owens. She crafted an extremely beautiful plan that fits almost everything we want to see within our limited time. This plan is refined couple times along the way, including last-minute change due to our visa situation. She has been extremely patient and helpful to us.
The trip itself was fantastic. Jacada did a great job in adding many personalized touch throughout our trip. Very friendly guides and drivers who knows our taste, welcome gifts upon arrival to every country and every hotels, and lots of letters from [Name]. Our hotels are all amazing and fits our preference of what a good hotel should be.
There is absolutely nothing bad I can think of. It has been one of the most memorable trip for us. It's even better to know that the price we paid are only slightly higher than what local tour providers in Indonesia would charge us; but we got WAY better hotels and services.
If there is anything Jacada can do to improve what has already been a really wonderful service, is if they can take care of visa applications as well. Otherwise, all my thumbs up for them!
p.s. If you want to know EVERY single detail and experience of my recent trip with them, check out my blog by searching google and type "Travelog christian leonardo jacada"

“Our Peru Review gets the thumbs up”
We had a fantastic 10 days in Peru organised by Jacada. We didn't have to put much into the planning coz Jacada really knew how to make the most of the 10 days. We were met by representatives at every stop and our guide, Oscar was fantastic. The hotels were really magnificent choices. It was great to know that we were not missing anything important since the trip was planned with someone who knew the area. Thank you Jacada for a wonderful experience. We now really want to explore more of South America. Looking forward to planning our next trip.

“Wonderful trip to Peru with Jacada!”
We traveled to Peru with Jacada in September/October 2014. We chose Jacada because of their flexibility and responsiveness. Our trip encompassed three nights in Sacred Valley, one night in Machu Picchu, three nights in Cusco, three nights at Lake Titicaca outside of Puno, and two nights in Lima.
Each hotel (Rio Sagrado, Inkaterra, Monasterio, Titilaka, Miraflores Park) was beautiful, rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, and each room offered a beautiful view. Our guides were well-informed, courteous, and professional, and the drivers were excellent. We were met at each location and were escorted to airport or train station after our visit there. The sights we experienced in each location exceeded our expectations. Peru is a beautiful country with a rich archeological and cultural heritage which we were so pleased to experience. Everywhere, the people we met were friendly and helpful.
The restaurants in our hotels, those which were part of our package, and those which we chose on our own served tasty, high quality, local food uncontaminated by outside influence. Peru does not receive enough credit for its cuisine
What a wonderful trip! Our thanks to George Warren at Jacada, to our guides and drivers, and to all the people who made our journey so pleasant and memorable. We would certainly consider traveling with Jacada in the future.

“Jacada is "no ka 'oi"”
In Hawaiian "no ka 'oi" simply means "the best". My wife and I have always done everything on our own when traveling so going through a travel agent was a first for us and "luxury travel" was also a first. The best I can say for Jacada in general and George Warren in particular is that --- every single thing they said they would do they did. It was also done when they said it would be done. There were a few surprises though, like the tango show where when we got there we were seated, literally, front row center.
Also the restaurant where we were seated right next to the kitchen (an honor) where we could watch what was going on and converse with the chefs. Every hotel they booked for us treated us as if we were the most important people they had on the property.
Jacada is truly "no ka 'oi".

“Jacada is one of the best companies we have had the privelge to work with.”
From the very first communication Ciara and Susanne were a delight to work with. Our initial inquiry was for a 3 week trip to Peru and the Galapagos. The proposed program submitted to us was the right length, and it took two revisions to set the quality and standard of accommodation we wanted. The Galapagos offers a variety of ships. Wanting something larger we settled on the Silver Galapagos which offered a range of creature, that met our needs. From our arrival in Lima until our departure from Quito we were met by fantastic guides, and drivers. The knowledge of the guides and service provided everywhere was terrific. Every hotel booked was far better than expected, and the service everywhere was perfect. Little things like receiving a personal note at every hotel from Ciara with personal recommendations of things to see and do, and local restaurants to visit was an added bonus, and a great welcome everywhere we went.
Personal service and detail is something Jacada have perfected. Our travel experience was nothing short of amazing. Everyone wants that dream vacation. Dream vacations have, however to be first created. Ciara, Susanne and the Jacada team did that for us. "Brilliant"

Our tour of Peru was terrific. Lima was a very pleasant surprise. Our morning tour guide took us to the main attractions in the old city and some special sites, particularly the oldest house in Lima which was not to be missed. Jacada was very helpful in arranging a car and driver for the afternoon to visit the fishing wharf and Christ statue overlooking the city, both highlights of our Lima Visit.
Our adventure continued through the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco with a terrific guide, Johan Sueros. He was extremely accommodating and knowledgable. Very patient with us working through the challenges of the high altitudes and taking us to a few unscheduled locations such as the Cuscos market. Both train rides we took were exceptional (Hiram Bingham to Machu Picchu and the Andean Explorer) and our time at Lake Titikaka was stunningly beautiful.

From the initial review of the Jacana website to contact with George our travel consultant we had big expectations… Peru was on our bucket list and our first trip to South America.
It was without a doubt one of the most well organized, seamless travel experience we have had, and we are a well traveled couple.
Our guides when we touched down in Peru for each leg of our journey were true professionals and clearly enjoy what they do and have a love and knowledge of their country that created the perfect environment as we travelled around the country.
It really is a 5* guided travel service that makes you feel that at any turn you can be helped or guided with your every need. We had the privacy of beautiful hotels, private tours and being able to manage seeing places without going when it was busy with tourists.
I know that people visit Peru because of the famous Machu Picchu however there are so many more magical places that will make us return to this warm and wonderful place, this was truly helped by the expert planning from Jacada.
We will being using their travel planning services going forward.

“A Perfect 35-day South American Honeymoon”
Thank you Jobi and the entire Jacada Travel team for making our most memorable and enjoyable honeymoon happen!
The entire process – from planning, the trip itself, after trip service was amazing!
The planning process:
Jobi made sure she understands what we want exactly out of our trip and was able to plan the perfect honeymoon for us. It was obvious to us that she knows South America extremely well and was able to advise us with any questions we might have. She also took great initiative to follow up on e-mails and calls if she doesn’t hear from us for a day. Knowing that we like adventure and food, she was even able to recommend us down to the restaurants to book. Having a perfectly planned trip makes the execution less likely to fail.
The trip itself:
A few weeks before the trip, we received two little black books complete with all the information we need for packing and preparing. It was extremely useful. The trip itself was amazing! The guides were very helpful and informative, and we enjoyed our time in each place. The number of days spent in each place was just perfect, none too short and none too long, which again shows how well Jobi knows her clients and each location well. Furthermore, we were very impressed and pleasantly surprised that at every hotel that we check in, there is always a card (mostly handwritten) from Jobi welcoming us, and describing to us the location and what she thinks we will like best. It was a very nice personalized touch that always warms our hearts whenever we check into a hotel. The service during the trip was also beyond our expectations. Having a 35-day honeymoon bound to have some hiccups here and there, but despite the time difference, Jobi was always there to facilitate our needs.
After the trip:
Even though the trip has ended and there is no more obligation from Jacada to us, Jobi and her team (especially Chile team) were still helping us track some shipment back to Singapore. The final shipment (we custom made a 70kg moai statue from Easter Island) has finally arrived and we are extremely happy that there is a momento from our amazing South American honeymoon! We wanted to post the photo of the moai but there is no attachment option on this site :(
Thank you Jobi and the entire Jacada team for such a perfect and memorable honeymoon!
