OUR BEST TRIP YET - MOROCCO

We are now back home after a wonderful trip to Morocco. This may have been our best trip yet with Blue Parallel. Everything ran like a clock. The food was great, the hotels were great and the country was great. We all feel our main guide was exceptionally good. He was very well informed and went above and beyond to make us all happy during the trip. His driver was also outstanding and made us all feel safe on the treacherous roads of Morocco. It was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had.

EXCELLENT ADVENTURE - ARGENTINA

All of the Malletts had an excellent experience and adventure, and we highly enjoyed all the folks on the Blue Parallel team. Magadalena was easy-going, accommodating and a perfect host. She was great with all of us and made everything go very smoothly. The staff in the glaciers area were excellent, friendly and helpful. Ernestina in Buenos Aires was perfect; we all loved her and she made our time here very special. The girls wanted to spend as much time with her as we could. We also highly enjoyed Gabriel in Iguazu. He was very knowledgeable.

Blue Parallel’s arrangements were first class all the way. We were taken care of in a very exclusive and private manner at all times.

OTHERWORLDLY - CHILE

The trip was amazing. Going to Chilean Patagonia is like going to Mars — otherworldly. The hotels were incredible; I’ve never seen a property quite like it. They do a superb job and I’d recommend to anyone looking for an adventure. We hiked… hard! It’s a physically taxing trip, so great for people interested in athletic activity. Guides, meals, service — all first rate.

We were so blown away with level of service. The people, guides and accommodations were all round great. The Park Hyatt and Das Cataratas were beautiful with spacious rooms. Blue Parallel went above and beyond and their competitors do not compete in any way in terms of service. We wouldn’t change a thing if we were to repeat the trip and we are very excited to be traveling with you again next year.

THE BLUE PARALLEL TOUCH

Peru, November 2023

We are extremely happy about our trip to Peru and with lots of fantastic images and memories of the past three weeks. Thank you very much for the outstanding preparation of our trip and for achieving to provide the perfect trip and organization for what we like in vacations like these: active time during the day and great accommodations at night. The organization of the trip was clearly well thought through and the accommodations were all great, especially the Monasterio in Cuzco, the Cirqa in Arequipa and the Titilaka Lodge on Lake Titicaca. We regularly felt the Blue Parallel touch in terms of attention to the details that make you feel special… having someone make you feel special is always a nice phenomenon. After our experience in Patagonia last year, we were once again delighted by the trip you put together for us and will not hesitate to call on Blue Parallel again in the future. We felt pampered and well supported throughout.

EXCEEDED EVERY WISH

Spain, October 2023

The trip exceeded every wish I ever had. My family are blown away, as am I. There is no way I can ever say how grateful I am for getting all of us together for a vacation of a lifetime. There are no adequate words to express my gratitude for all of the special touches you added to the vacation. The musicians on the boat ride and the musicians at our vow renewal were so special! My family did not have enough compliments to share at your attention to detail, both the Correl Del Ray and Hotel Fuente de la Higuera were outstanding! The restaurants exceptional; first class all the way. All the guides were wonderful!

I wanted to share with you the “notes” I took on our life changing, heart growing anniversary trip. I simply cannot thank you enough for your arrangements and your patience.

FIRST RATE

Croatia & Montenegro, October 2023

The boat crew was first rate, particularly Anna, and all the guides were fantastic. Hvar was a cool island and Dubrovnik was better than expected and we ha a great guide. The private cooking class at the local ranch in Dubrovnik was the best activity. Both the Palace Elisabeth and One & Only Portonovi were amazing. We wouldn’t change anything.

VERY, VERY SPECIAL

Morocco & Portugal, September 2023

The guides and drivers in each location were excellent, particularly the driver and Berber guide in Marrakesh, the guide and driver in Lisbon and the guide during our drive to Porto. David, our guide for the biking and hiking in the Douro Valley was amazing. The private cooking class in Marrakesh was great fun and the staff were fantastic. The special early entry to Pena Palace in Lisbon was fabulous and invaluable. We loved Coimbra University; the students were all in robes when we visited which was quite a spectacle. The Library and Chapel was a highlight of the experience and was very, very special. Pictures do not do Douro Valley justice. The cooking class, biking adventure and boat excursion were the highlights here. The accommodations were gorgeous.

MANY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES

Iceland, September 2023

We are so happy with our recent Iceland holiday. I think it’s probably worth nothing that both of us would have been happy to spend more time there – that’s a measure of a good time! Accommodation was excellent. There is nothing about Deplar Farm that should have less than a rave review. Their helicopter took us over the mountains to the whale watching (wow!) and back along the coast. Fantastic! Each day seemed to lead to another memorable experience. There was also not a single person with whom we interacted that we did not wish for more time but it would be remiss of me not to flag three outstanding individuals: our snorkeling guide in the Silfra fissure, James; our helicopter pilot, Andri; and our tour guide and companion, Atli who was 11 out of 10.

OFF THE CHARTS HIGHLIGHTS

Greece, September 2023

I cannot express enough how extraordinary this trip was and what excellent service Blue Parallel provided. The off the charts highlights were the sunset picnic with live music in Santorini and the meal on the farm in Crete. Just unbelievable and unforgettable moments. You have real gems in Ruth, Dimitris, and Vangelis in particular.

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

Brazil, August 2023

The travel adventure was beyond expectations. The activities and adventure were customized to our interests and it was an excellent trip that pleased everyone. The accommodations were luxurious, particularly in the Amazon jungle and Rio. The guides throughout our tour were top notch; they were familiar with their local sights, easy to spend time with and available whenever needed. One of the highlights of our tour to Brazil had to be swimming in the Amazon River with gray and pink dolphins. If we could, we would have extended the trip and had more time in Rio.

EACH STOP WAS MEMORABLE

Brazil, August 2023

All in all, we had a top holiday in Brazil. Each stop was memorable, and the guides were excellent. It rained quite a lot in Rio, so the option for indoor activities was appreciated and we made time for some shopping.

PERFECT ORGANIZATION

Sicily, April 2023

Thank you for the perfect organization of our Sicily trip. It would be too long to mention all the interesting places we visited and all the charming people we met (all the drivers were excellent, particularly Alex, and all the guides extremely knowledgeable, particularly Rachele). The books you sent us previously to the trip by John Julius Norwich and Giovanni Verga were most useful and visiting smaller towns which are hardly mentioned in the guides, such as Grammichele, Vizzini or Palazzolo Acreide, was an excellent idea. All hotels and restaurants excellent, the Seven-rooms Villa Dorata in Noto in particular, even if it has now expanded to nine rooms.

TRULY EXCEPTIONAL

Argentina, March 2023

I have traveled the world and worked with many people over the years but you exceeded any hope/expectation I had for a trip. There were no glitches, every detail was planned and executed, the people who assisted us – from airport to drivers/guides/escorts were truly excellent. Your detailed instructions, advice and printed matter was reassuring and helped us understand what was ahead. I can’t describe your approach as professional as I have dealt with many professionals and what you did was more than that… truly exceptional.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

Chile, March 2023

I cannot thank you enough for pulling it together so last minute; the trip exceeded our expectations. Wine country was beautiful and what a treat to see the harvest in progress. Our favorite experience was our trip to Montes Winery – our guide Leo was so fun, knowledgable and welcoming. After his amazing tour and tasting, we had a delicious lunch among the vines in the winery restaurant. The Atacama Desert was also such a wonder. Every day we experienced different landscapes and were blown away by the beauty. The Awasi Atacama is a real oasis in a very rustic mountain town. The staff and guides were exceptional. I wish I had done a bit more research before we left as I would have included a tad more physical activity; we might have done a bit more biking.

The trip was incredible! Every detail was flawlessly planned and we had an amazing time. Thank you to Blue Parallel for all of your help! The accommodations were incredible; we especially loved Explora and Nayara! The hotels were amazing and some of the best we’ve ever stayed at. The guides were all excellent. We particularly enjoyed spending time with Alvin. He was incredibly knowledgeable and really gave us a great sense of Santiago! Hiking in Patagonia was absolutely incredible.

We were really very satisfied. LOVED every guide and it was such a treat to be taken care of so well!

We were also really happy with the gentleman that accompanied us to the airport. We really enjoyed our stay at the Ka’ana Boutique Resort San Ignacio – the service, food, butlers and accommodations were all outstanding. Our favorite activities included horseback riding, visiting the Mayan temple, hiking, and cave exploring. We also enjoyed the private boat trip from Turtle Inn.

OUR ITINERARY WAS PERFECT

Croatia & Montenegro, November 2022

We’re wishing we were back on the most wonderful trip to Croatia and Montenegro. Our itinerary was perfect. Natalia was so helpful and a great guide full of knowledge and perfect suggestions, and we were impressed with all of our drivers. We throughly enjoyed Split for its marvelous food, history, shops, bars etc. EVERY restaurant you recommended on the trip was superb. We loved all the walking tours and hikes, and our boat day to Hvar on a lovely 40ft boat was magical. Our hike day was amazing; Pjero was the perfect guide. The Hvarian Peka meal for lunch at Malo Grablje was a trip highlight in such a special location. Korcula was so special! The organic winery was lovely and oyster/mussel tasting was such a highlight! We also loved the organic olive oil farm and tasting in Montenegro — it is a very special place. We would love to use you all again for future trips and will highly recommend you.

STARS IN THE EYES

Chile & Argentina, November 2022

We came back from these two weeks in Patagonia with stars in the eyes and a very high level of satisfaction about the trip. Eolo and Tierra Patagonia are first class; El Chalten was a level below, but largely compensated by the fact that we were in the middle of the action. The guides were all very competent, useful, knowledgeable, kind and they made the difference. Special kudos to Pablo ‘Ecua’ in El Chalten who was the best hiker of all and pulled us forward on the walking paths! Alexis and the Blue Parallel team have done a great job preparing the trip. Not only that, but we felt their background presence at every step, with an outstanding level of real time information when changes or adaptations needed to be made. The liaison between Blue Parallel’s head office and the guides locally was very smooth and flawless, anticipating any and all of our needs and desires. As far as Blue Parallel is concerned, the highlights were overall and unabated level of professionalism, discretion and behind-the scene efficiency.

FANTASTIC – OUT OF THE PARK

Norway, November 2022

Overall, we really enjoyed our tour to Norway. We loved the property in Alesund and would have happily spent more time there; the view was jaw-dropping! The downhill biking was an exciting activity and our guide was excellent. We travel frequently and I always try and arrange boating experiences on each trip. This private boat excursion was one of the best and most fun family travel experiences we’ve ever had; the captain was excellent and everything was stunningly beautiful. The lighthouse on the private island was fantastic – out of the park: the boys got to fish all day and they loved it, the chef prepared a delicious meal, the wood fired hot tub was great and we even got lucky enough to see the Northern Lights for around 20-25 minutes despite it being August! We also loved our hotel in Stockholm and our guide here was excellent. He was super knowledgeable and flexible with our plans – he even added the Viking Museum into our itinerary for the boys.

Brazil, May 2022

Our trip to Rio was great. It could not have been better. The itinerary was perfect for us, especially the flexibility included so that our trip to Christ the Redeemer could occur on a blue sky day. Our guide, Lais, was wonderful. Both personable and knowledgeable, she was great to tour with and was very adept in handling itinerary challenges, such as rearranging a helicopter flight due to clouds and also completely changing one rainy day itinerary into something completely different than planned. Our driver, Alex, was very professional and has the perfect calm demeanor necessary to get around efficiently in Rio.

All of the guides and drivers selected by your local travel companies were superb. In Lisbon, we had Goncalo and Antonio, both so pleasant that we invited them to join us for the lovely lunch overlooking the sea in Cascais; same with Marta and Marco in Porto. It became a good way for us to get to know the local people! Having an active day of biking on Thursday was a good way of breaking up the trip and gave us an alternative to the churches and urban sights we were visiting on most of our other days. Thank you again for all of your attentiveness and assistance in making this a special vacation.

AN UNFORGETTABLE TRIP

Guatemala & Panama, March 2022

The trip went exceedingly well. All of the guides and drivers were very good and they were always on time meeting us at the airports and for the activity planned. They were also very attentive to my handicap and helped me numerous times during the trip. We were also impressed that they all had some knowledge of local birds and were able to contribute to our interest in birding. You did a great job in putting together a super itinerary. The highlight of the trip was the three days on the catamaran with Fred and Marina; they went above and beyond in taking care of our every need. The food onboard was the best of the trip and the catamaran was very comfortable. This was a wonderful trip we will never forget.

EVERYTHING I HAD HOPED FOR

Panama, January 2022

The trip was WONDERFUL. We adored the San Blas Islands, a true gem and the sailboat was perfect. As a destination, it was everything I had hoped for: stunningly beautiful, remote, and culturally rich with the Guna people. I would love to go back another time with the family when the boys are older. We also really liked Isla Palenque — very different from the Caribbean side but amazing old-growth tropical forest. Such great activities, too.

This was one of the best travel experiences of my life! Beginning on Victoria Island, then heading to the The Steps offered such different and equally amazing experiences of terrain.

Alex was fantastic throughout, caring for everything, adapting to the tricky weather at the beginning of the trip and keeping all the special surprises secret.

Argentina, December 2018

Best restaurants I have EVER eaten at — anywhere in the world — that we never would have found searching on our own. Our guide Alex was by far our favorite, but we loved ALL of them; all were friendly, knowledgeable and engaging and made each area unique and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and expertise — such wonderful people, we were truly sad to leave them! Blue Parallel and Saul were on top of things top to bottom, making adjustments quickly and painlessly and were never tired of our inquiries or changes.

A BALANCED TRIP

Brazil & Argentina, March 2018

You were really instrumental in creating the fantastic vacation we had. The Iguazu trip goes was a great add on. The trip was a good combination of exercise (biking/walking), site seeing (nature), and thrills (boat/helicopter). In addition, Las Cataratas was a great hotel that we really enjoyed. Our guide, Romina, was terrific: knowledgeable, flexible, and fun to be with. She did an outstanding job anticipating our needs and adjusting our schedule accordingly. We can’t imagine what the trip would have been like without you!

TWO WEEK AFTER GLOW

Argentina, March 2018

What an incredible trip we had, it was just amazing! Despite the zaniness we’ve had since our return, we all still are enjoying the trips’ afterglow two weeks later – that says a lot. One of our favorite pass times is to debate which part of our trip was the best. So many highlights. You did a fabulous job – you totally nailed our family. It was a lot crammed into the time we had, but we would not have had it any other way.

WELL BALANCED PROGRAM

Mexico, April 2018

Great agenda! Your suggestion to include Mexico City was fantastic. The guide was a real character and very experienced and covered well the historical sites as well as today’s world. He was flexible to requested changes and understood fast what our idea was. The program in Mexico City was well balanced between historical sites, clerical themes and Mexican City life today — including trendy restaurants. We loved Chablé a lot — wonderful design, the tequila tasting was outstanding, very pretty, great service. The day tours have been wonderful — the archeological sites are very impressive. The lunch arrangements have been so special and charming.

Our trip was nothing short of amazing. Our itinerary was perfectly tailored to us! Our guide, Zouhir, and driver, Badhr, were professional, friendly and fun. Mohamed, our guide for the last two days was a bit more of a reserved gentleman. Again, professional and friendly. We were extremely impressed with Jean Paul and his staff at Dar Ahlam. Richard Branson has done an impeccable job at Kasbah Tamadot. La Mamounia deserves all the positive press it has received. All in all, the hotels were stunning, the food delicious, and the people welcoming. It’s safe to say Don, Grace and I will return to Morocco! Hopefully next time we will make to the desert camp!

A TRIP FULL OF FAVORITES

Greece, June 2016

Our trip was fabulous — the properties, restaurants and activities you selected were outstanding. We have many “favorites” from the trip and almost nothing we would want to miss! Our top picks were the biking at Amazoe, the helicopter to Santorini, the sailing trip, the black sand beach, and the hike on our final night in Santorini. The properties you selected could not have been better. I would say that what made them special was the incredible service, but that would tend to under-sell the incredible locations, property, amenities and food at each place. But, the service was second to none.

We couldn’t wait to congratulate you for the quality of our special journey in Andalusia. This trip allowed us to discover many aspects of this area that is so rich in culture and tradition. The coordination was perfect as well as the hotels, the transportation, the local guides — everyone was just perfect. The private evening tour of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita in Cordoba are unforgettable memories. And above all, we want to especially congratulate you for your local representative, Fabricio, who accompanied us throughout our journey. He was a wonderful companion, he knows everything and everyone there is to know in Andalusia. He continuously did everything he could do to make our trip perfect. You cannot have someone on site who represents you better and more efficiently. Once again, you have exceeded our expectations!

Typically within hours of returning to my office after a vacation, the events which occurred on the vacation are forgotten as I am thrust back into the grind of meetings, phone calls, and the numerous opportunities to overcome adversity. However, as I sit here at my desk, I find myself reflecting on the exceptional experience that I had last week during my trip to Rio De Janeiro. The historical and local knowledge, hospitality and white glove treatment that my friends and I received from your representatives Lais and Georgia was incomparable. Their ingenious strategy of providing day time and night time specialization contributed in making our time in Rio unforgettable. Obrigado, Blue Parallel.

WORDS ARE INSUFFICIENT

Spain, March 2015

We’d like to highlight all four guides — Cristina, Pablo, Miguel and Mencía — and the driver, Jorge. They made the Madrid part of the trip special. In Seville, Luis’ reputation is well deserved. His knowledge and dry wit are priceless. Lola had an impossible assignment and came as close as humanly possible to pulling it off. Alejandro was terrific on Málaga history. For food, by the way, Málaga had only winners with restaurants we ate in. And then there is Fabricio and his extended family — mother, brother, sisters-in-law, et al. Semana Santa was because of them and about them. Words are insufficient to express our appreciation. If they are representative of their country, there are no more gracious people on earth than the Spanish.

A VERY NICE INTRODUCTION

Morocco, December 2014

The trip to Morocco was very nice. Of course, for us, the highlights were the last two “stops” along the way (i.e. Atlas Mountains, desert camp, and Dar Ahlam). Spectacular! The guides we had were very good — particularly the gentleman that was with us for Fes, Marrakesh, Rabat, etc. All the logistics went smoothly (i.e driver, pickups, airport transfers, helicopter, etc.) so I am grateful for that. Zephyr’s drum making session was great fun as was his turn at the pottery wheel in Fes. Thanks for setting these up for him! Overall it was a very nice introduction to Morocco for us — Berber culture, etc. Thanks so much for your time and assistance in putting everything together!

ALWAYS TAKEN CARE OF

Peru, May 2014

Peru is a breath-taking and beautiful country, and Carlos was exceptionally talented at bringing together his heritage in its culture, history, influences, and environmental conditions over the years… Willing to explore and contrast perspectives. He expressed a curiosity to discuss art, societal norms, the beauty and work of nature, beliefs, and next practices, as well as past ones. I majored in art history, but it was a true gift and a humbling one, having a guide to learn from and challenge me. Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu were beyond beautiful! Sarah went out of her way to specialize my itinerary. She is intuitive, goes above and beyond, and is the best I’ve worked with. I spoke with Sarah several times to help answer a number of questions and she was very forthcoming and took care of every need. I always felt safe and taken care of.

We loved every minute and every guide. We have not stopped talking about our delightful experience since our return. Each of our hotels was lovely, especially the Copacabana Palace. We absolutely loved the food, but the dinner at Chili in BA may be among the top five meals of my life. Each guide was simply outstanding; we enjoyed and learned from each one. Sarah was “with” us every step of the way in addition to being very amenable to any changes we wanted to make. She made us feel most relaxed and confident that whatever we needed would be taken care of. When traveling in a country where you don’t speak the language, that is of utmost importance.

Our Amazon cruise was fantastic with Juan Lois as a very knowledgeable guide who took us canoeing with dolphins, fishing for piranhas and showed us some amazing wild life in the rain forest. Jeremy, our guide in Cusco and Machu Picchu was outstanding, and really made our time there special. His vast knowledge about Peru and especially about the Incas was impressive, and his enthusiasm infectious! He had a great personality and that combined with his extensive knowledge made him an outstanding guide. A big thank-you to him from us! This trip was everything we had hoped for and more.

EVERYTHING WE HAD HOPED FOR

Ecuador, June 2012

The trip was everything we had hoped for. We’d never been met after a flight before, and it was really so much easier than muddling through on our own! I was also really appreciative of having Fernando on hand as we got ready to fly to the Galapagos; it was a bit of a zoo at the airport and I was sure glad to have an expert on hand! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Fernando. He was well informed, really well-versed in history, and extremely flexible (he willingly accompanied us on our trip to the Equator at the last minute). You are really lucky to have him on your staff – he is warm, welcoming and just wonderful. He is a treasure. Soto was equally welcoming and helpful, but the schedule on Galapagos did not involve as much interaction with him, so we did not get to know him as well. Now that we’ve done this trip, other areas of South America are looking WAY more appealing!

What an extraordinary job they did! Manuel talked about the history of the cuisine in the various regions — the visual presentation of the ingredients was gorgeous. He was extraordinary, the food was extraordinary, the wine was extraordinary. The house on Peninsula Valdes was something else! It was also quite a thrill to meet Flavio Quintana. We had rented the National Geographic Great Migrations series, which he was in, so to meet him in person was quite an honor. Also, he came prepared with an excellent slide presentation, so it was really, really informative. My son, who is 13 and loves all things National Geographic, was bowled over. He said it was the highlight of the trip for him. Our whole family is incredibly grateful for the experience. Thank you so much for making it happen for us. Anyway, you absolutely outdid yourself planning everything — and between Christmas and New Year’s to boot.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER

Chile, January 2011

Our trip could not have been better! Our personal travel concierge took the worry out of safety questions after the strikes in Punta Arenas, we were comfortable knowing that an alternative schedule would be made for us. We thought you did an excellent job of informing us before we left. Appreciated the books and video. Also, it was very helpful to be able to talk to you directly. All guides were great but particular recognition to Sebastian/connection from Explora through El Calafate, Marcus in BA, and our host (Matius) and wine expert on our horseback ride in Mendoza. Our lunch at Ruca Melan was exceptional and the riding experience with wine tasting and bbq in Mendoza was ‘over the top’.

BEST GUIDE WE HAVE EVER HAD

Chile, December 2010

Had a magnificent trip, Nancy and Suzie were fantastic. Suzie was a great guide and a lovely person. Alwin is by far the best guide we have ever had (and we travel extensively and have had great guides). He went above and beyond to be charming, helpful and was great to be with. He is a true gem.

BLUE PARALLEL DOES IT RIGHT

Chile, November 2009

Both Tim and I felt this was one of our top trips ever. The itinerary you put together could not have been better, and even though there was quite a bit of travel required, seeing the extremes of Chile (Patagonia and the Atacama) was well worth it. The Torres del Paine National Park was quite simply stunning — well worth the 5 hour drive from Punta Arenas! Our guides were top notch — warmly welcoming us off the plane, attending to our needs, making sure we toured the important things, at the right pace and in comfort, and always providing us with wonderful cultural and social insights. Our lodging was just the right mix of boutique to luxury. Blue Parallel does it right, paying attention to all the important details. Maybe someday we will go back to South America, and if so, we will work with you again.

Thank you for all your help in arranging our trip. We had a great time and learned a lot about the country and its rich history. Thank you again for helping us when Spenser and Brian got sick. We were not sure what to do. You having the doctor waiting for us when we arrived in Cusco was a godsend. The guides were all wonderful — informative, patient, flexible and enthusiastic.

THE TRIP OF OUR DREAMS

Guatemala, April 2009

I worked closely with Blue Parallel to plan a trip for my family of six to Belize and Guatemala. I was impressed by their concern to detail — they wanted me to tell them very specifically what we wanted to do, what we valued in a place to stay, what kind of food we liked and how we liked to travel. It was clear that Blue Parallel wanted my family to have the trip of our dreams. And we did! We had eight perfect days and nights! We stayed in beautiful, comfortable places, learned from wise and enjoyable guides and managed to cram countless great experiences into a too short vacation. Blue Parallel is really an amazing group to work with. I wish they planned trips all over the world so that I could use them every time my family traveled!

SEAMLESS LOGISTICS

We had a magical time in the Galapagos. It was more than we originally imagined it. The naturalist guides were passionate and knowledgeable, but in a way that brought us into their world and made us feel part of the experience. The logistics were seamless and we were never rushed. A truly unique combination of awe (the snorkeling!), relaxation (near Cotopaxi) and intellectual stimulation (Quito colonial old city).

Always magical, beyond a fantasy. Best by far were the many people from Argentina that Blue Parallel brought into our life… new friends and memories forever. Our lunch (in Bariloche) was a miracle and Valle Encantado was in every description amazing. Ida was perfect with ideas and follow up, and concerned that everything be perfect for sensibility and goals of the traveler.

FIRST RATE ITINERARY

Argentina, January 2009

We had a great trip. Your itinerary suggestions and planning were first rate and the local service spot-on. Los Glaciares National Park has beautiful mountain scenery and the glacier walk was very enjoyable. The volcano hike in the Lake District, with 2 excellent guides, was a real treat. The trip to Huerquehue National Park was another pleasant surprise with beautiful countryside passing by a fabulous estancia with a lovely walk to the waterfall. Atacama exceeded our (high) expectations in every aspect: the scenery is diverse and stunning; the lodge could not be more beautiful, the staff very friendly; the walks beautiful; and the food superb. We would not hesitate to return.”

We had a fabulous time in Guatemala. We found everything to be exceptional. All the privately prepared food was excellent — the picnics and the private house at Casa Palopo. Adolfo and Melvin, our primary guides are lovely and well-informed persons as well as their drivers. We would definitely want to work with them again. We also enjoyed our tour of Antigua with Jane. What I most liked about Meson Panza Verde is its character and access to the rest of Antigua. I loved the concert on our final night at Panza Verde and the table that was chosen for us. What was particularly good for us about this trip was the number of people we met from all walks of life and their openness to us being there and answering all questions. We left Guatemala feeling as if we had made some new friends!

THE TOUR COMPANY TO USE

Peru, December 2007

Our experience with Blue Parallel in Peru was simply outstanding. From the planning to the execution, Blue Parallel personnel were very helpful, attentive to detail, and extraordinarily customer-focused. We absolutely adored Gaby, our guide in the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. You couldn’t ask for more from a guide! She poured her heart and soul into making our experience the best possible. Her enthusiasm about the sights and the culture were contagious. We all left feeling we had made a new friend. John, our driver, was terrific — we still can’t figure out how he could navigate the vehicle down such narrow streets with such skill! We also enjoyed Hugo and Frankie, our hosts in Lima. Blue Parallel runs a truly first-class operation, and I would have no hesitation recommending them as THE tour company to use for visits to Peru. We hope this won’t be our last trip with Blue Parallel!

Ernestina was a doll and we enjoyed her immensely. It was great to have a Porteño to show us Buenos Aires! My sister, one night in BA, had a medical need; the Costa Petit Hotel along with Ernestina had a doctor to the hotel within 30 minutes. They diagnosed her issue and prescribed medicine — and my sister was still able to join us for dinner and tango that night. Excellent service.

A VERY GOOD TRIP

Ecuador, February 2007

This journey to Ecuador was a very good trip. Santiago was just outstanding. He was extremely knowledgable about the country and helpful to us in all ways. In Quito, the private guided tour of San Augustin was fantastic. As to the Galapagos, the boat was excellent. As it happened, the owner was on board with his family, and had the suite just across from us. Dreis was a very good guide. Having an individual guide was wonderful. Quite a number of other guests asked us what tour company we were traveling with, to get such treatment. We also enjoyed the hacienda as well as Cuenca, which was wonderful. We were both glad that you included Cuenca in the trip. The hike in Cajas National Park was really great — and the picnic at the end was fantastic.

Both Chris and I have agreed that this was one of the most memorable and enjoyable holidays we have experienced in our many years of traveling. We wish to add our accolades for all, including Hugo in Lima and Walter, Percy, Señor Pepe and Gabriela in Cusco. Of course we spent the most time with Gaby whose guidance, dedication, knowledge and commitment was superb.

EXCELLENT FROM START TO FINISH

Argentina, November 2006

Another excellent trip from start to finish. Blue Parallel manages to exceed your expectations of every location you visit. The tremendous guides and perfectly planned itineraries make the trip flow effortlessly. Having Ossian as a guide for five days made our trip. The ‘extras’ were great — local lunches, massage, making empanadas and going to the family home / winery in Cafayate.

AMAZING GROUP EXPERIENCE

Argentina, November 2006

Unparalleled experience. The staff made every effort to meet any and all of our expectations. We had a large group and everyone had an amazing experience. The extreme sun rafting experience is a must. I have never had a more complete group trip run as well.

A WONDERFUL SECOND TRIP

Argentina, October 2006

This is our second trip with Blue Parallel. This trip to the Northwest of Argentina and the Lake District was entirely different and was equally wonderful. I would use Blue Parallel again and again. In fact, I will contact Emmanuel in a few weeks for another trip.

VERY WELL COORDINATED

Peru, June 2006

I wanted to tell you how thrilled and impressed we were with our entire experience with Blue Parallel in Peru. This was the first vacation I have ever taken where I didn’t have to think or worry about a thing. Every aspect of the trip was handled smoothly and was very well coordinated. Our guides were all knowledgeable, kind and patient. All of the excursions met or exceeded our high expectations. Transportation was comfortable and efficient and all of the accommodations were first class. My husband (not a huge fan of international travel) was highly skeptical prior to our leaving for Peru, but in the end he was thoroughly impressed and amazed at the level of service and attention we received. My son said he felt like a rock star the entire time, and LOVED having local well-known surfers to surf and hang out with as a break from spending so much time with his parents! In the end, it was the quality one-on-one time we got to spend with him that we will cherish most of all. In summary, I just want to say, thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

TREASURED MEMORIES

Argentina, February 2006

Blue Parallel is simply the best. Our adventures with Blue Parallel were over the top. How wonderful it was after our long flight to be met in Lima by Frankie and transported to the Hotel, then on to Cusco only to be met yet again by Juan Carlos, Antonio and Gabby, our outstanding guide. Our time in Cusco and Machu Picchu was everything I had anticipated and more. After our cruise (the highlights being a day’s flight to Antarctica and a tour of Torres Del Paine), we once again entered the exclusive world of Blue Parallel in Buenos Aires. Virginia was a breath of fresh air, so hospitable and energetic. And then the surprises began in earnest. The ranch was a bit of heaven, so beautiful and pristine and Marcelo a perfect host. To be hosted in such style with musicians and a gourmet lunch a top the mountain was truly awesome. It was “Out Of Africa” in Bariloche. Then Llao Llao, a perfect ending with a glorious sail on Nahuel Huapi Lake. Your itinerary was perfect in every detail, and your staff are among the best. We were treated like royalty. We shall treasure our memories.

MEMORABLE & EXCITING

Argentina, January 2006

We had a fabulous trip and appreciated your and your staff’s efforts to make it memorable and exciting. I must commend you on the whole organization’s fine attention to detail, timely responses to questions, and ability to adjust schedules and activities during the trip as necessary. All of our hosts and guides were friendly and respectful. We would like to thank especially Virginia in Buenos Aires, the guides for the ice trekking, and the guides at Harberton Estancia in Ushuaia. I will highly recommend Blue Parallel to anyone interested in travelling to South America. This trip to Patagonia was first class all the way!

9 LOCATIONS IN 25 DAYS

Argentina, January 2006

I strongly recommend anyone contemplating a trip to South America take advantage of the services offered by Blue Parallel. We traveled throughout South America (Brazil, Argentina and Chile) stopping in nine different locations over 25 days and everything went like clockwork. The accommodations and travel arrangements were first class. The people meeting us at each stop were extremely capable and friendly and the locations selected by Blue Parallel were fantastic and well planned. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip!

WE WERE OVERJOYED

Argentina, January 2006

We had a truly fantastic time in Patagonia, and are quite depressed to be going home! We have been overjoyed with the experiences Blue Parallel has exposed to us. We love the combo of adventure, natural beauty, and of course pampering! Your entire staff (at least the ones we have met), has added a critical and certainly positive element to our trips. We can not thank you enough! Thank you for providing such glorious memories! The question now is where to go next?! We look so forward to our next trip with Blue Parallel.

GREAT EXTRA VALUE

Brazil, December 2005

The Blue Parallel extra value on this trip to Brazil was great — the helicopters, the speed boats, the flexibility of changing plans, and the ability to adjust to the different demands of the group.

A WONDERFUL VACATION

Argentina & Chile, December 2005

This two week trip to Argentina and Chile you arranged for my family was one of the best trips we have ever had. Each member of my family had a wonderful vacation. Our time was used very efficiently from beginning to end. The guides and hosts who took care of us were all intelligent, well-educated, and were highly concerned at all times about our well-being. Do not hesitate to ask us for a reference in the future.

FLAWLESSLY EXECUTED

Peru, August 2005

Julie and I had a great time in Peru. Overall, the service from Blue Parallel was excellent. Kathy was wonderful. She was a joy to be with and was extremely knowledgeable. Hugo, Javier and the others were very professional. While in Machu Picchu, we did hike to Huiñay Huayna and also hiked Huayna Picchu which were the highlights of the trip. The accommodations were excellent (especially the Sanctuary Lodge) and the schedule was well planned and flawlessly executed. We will remember this trip forever.

GREAT ADVENTURE

Peru, June 2005

Our time in Peru with Blue Parallel was absolutely the best. Our hosts, guides and drivers were all very caring, kind, efficient, thorough, and professional. Our experience far exceeded our expectations. Larry and I said to each other the day we left that if we had not been wise enough to secure the services of Blue Parallel, we would have missed a lot. Your guides, most especially (Hugo and Gaby), helped to give so much understanding and meaning to the great adventure we had in Peru. And when there was a glitch on Tuesday in Machu Picchu because of the train strike, Gaby ensured that we had the most wonderful experience on the Luxury Train back to Cusco. I have always wanted to ride on the Orient Express, and it was just the greatest. If we ever plan to be in South America again, we will certainly contact you to help us with our travels.

ACTION PACKED ITINERARY

Argentina, December 2004

Every time we show our friends the pictures we took on this trip we become very excited and happy. First of all, the services and personnel associated with your company and YOU could have not been more helpful or kind. We found everyone enthusiastic, energetic, and open. While we had an action packed itinerary, we never felt more relaxed. Your selection of accommodations was outstanding from rustic to city sophisticated and every time elegant and comfortable. We shall return and we are encouraging our friends to travel to Argentina — you made it so very special. I should also thank you for that GREAT bottle of Luigi Bosca 2001 Reserva. We first enjoyed this wine at the private ranch in Patagonia (a recommendation of Marcel Marpegan) during an unforgettable evening of classical music and wonderful asado under the stars. It was so special for us to drink it again at home and recall again this marvelous experience in Argentina. We are still savoring our bottles from San Pedro Yachochuya and Colome!

EXTRAORDINARY & EXCELLENT

Peru, December 2004

Our guides in Lima and Cusco were consistently impressive in their knowledge and passion for Peru. I felt that we were able to see so many more things off the beaten track under their guidance, especially the special ceremony the last night in Machu Picchu. The entire time I felt like we had none of the “headaches” associated with traveling abroad. The extra attention from our host Carmen made a great difference for us. Overall an extraordinary and an excellent trip, and I will recommend Peru and Blue Parallel to interested friends.

We couldn’t have been more pleased overall with Blue Parallel, with all of Argentina, and with all the people we met throughout our trip. You really made us feel as if we had friends and family type connections everywhere, and traveling has never been made easier. We definitely put some tough tests in front of you and we both are really impressed and hugely appreciative of how your team and Evelyn’s team took care of us. I have been talking nonstop the last two days at the office about how much we enjoyed Argentina and its people, and how first-class your group is — thanks again to everyone, our overall appreciation and gratitude could not be greater.

Patagonia, November 2004

This was our first experience with Blue Parallel and I hope it won’t be our last. Your service exceeded by far our expectations. You enabled us to see the best Patagonia has to offer in the most luxurious way possible. I am 87 years old, did world traveling since 1957, and this journey was in a category of its own — this was by far the best escorted tour I have ever taken.

THIS IS ELEGANCE

Argentina, November 2004

What do you most want in a travel advisor? Two things: complete knowledge and absolute discretion. That Blue Parallel has the first is beyond question. All the Blue Parallel employees, guides and escorts that I met in Buenos Aires were marvelously clever, resourceful and flexible. “Discretion” is a rarer attribute and, perhaps, Blue Parallel’s chief strength. Meaning, if you want attention and hand-holding you will get it. But in those moments or hours where you want to be left alone, the folks from Blue Parallel know to disappear. This is elegance. This is taste. This is the way to be shown a new place. I have never been taken care of in a foreign country in such a sophisticated way. Bravo, Blue Parallel!

UNFORGETTABLE GETAWAY

Peru, November 2004

Thank you and everyone at Blue Parallel for organizing such an incredible trip to Peru.To have the opportunity to go hiking, biking, and explore the Andes was an experience I shall remember all of my life. Machu Picchu is truly wonderful; the architecture, the mystery and the stunning surroundings. I’ll never forget the first time I looked out over Machu Picchu. Peru has got to be one of the most beautiful and magical countries in the world. I would like to particularly thank our guide Gabby who went beyond the call of duty to make our trip a truly memorable experience. Many thanks to all who helped in arranging this unforgettable getaway.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE

Thank you for organizing a splendid birthday celebration in Argentina that I will remember for the rest of my life. The graciousness of our host Carolina, the encyclopedic knowledge of our guide Cora, the infinite patience of our tango teacher Laura, and our driver Jorge’s excellent service went a very long way. We also thank the Blue Parallel team in Ushuaia for their outstanding service and knowledge of science and the fueguinian environment. We hope to return to Argentina in the future with Blue Parallel, hopefully sometime in 2005. I have plans of writing to Departures magazine about the extraordinary trip we had in Argentina, courtesy of Blue Parallel, as I feel very fortunate that I learned about your company through Departures magazine.
