“Fantastic service, wonderful Honeymoon”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by uoFitch200 (1 review written)

We booked with Latin Roots for our 3 weel honeymoon in Argentina and we were certainly not disappointed. From the moment we enquired our Latin Roots agent made us feel like we'd made the right choice. They helped us plan the route around Argentina and recommended great accommodation and day trips. They really couldn't do enough to help and everything was thought of. We had a wonderful time which simply would not have been possible without Latin Roots help… Read Full Review

“City, Jungle, Wine”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by KennaFitzpatrick110 (1 review written)

We choose a three centre stay, Buenos Airies, Iguazu falls & Mendoza(the wine area). At all points we were asked by an advisor how we wanted to do our trips and where we wanted to stay. The hotel & half day tour of Buenos Aries by Gus were brilliant. She had given us a hotel that meant we could walk easily around the city & find all the character, steak and free tango that the city is famed for. We then took a cab( very easy) to the domestic city airport for a LAN flight to Iguazu. LAN are… Read Full Review

“Superbly efficient”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by Jworcester (1 review written)

We have not yet had our holiday to Chile/Argentina/Brazil but if the quality service and efficiency of the planning to confirmation is anything to go by then it will be a smooth and fantastic experience. Latin Routes turned our initial musings and chat at a travel show into an impressive and detailed itinerary in less than a week. We made a number of subsequent changes and additions to what will be a 6 week trip and everything was dealt with in the same courteous and efficient manner. They… Read Full Review

“Efficient, reliable and fast service!”

Written on: 21/06/2014 by Baker1959 (1 review written)

Visited Chile in March 2014, the staff at Latin Routes were able to offer a tailor made trip at the most competitive price. Our endless requests were always promptly accommodated and every aspect of the trip was carefully planned to satisfy our (picky!) travellers needs. Local agent was not as good and let us down a couple of times but thankfully the staff at LR were able to follow up on our behalf and resolve the issues. If you are looking for a reliable tour operator, I would definitely… Read Full Review

“LATIN ROUTES FOR SOUTH AMERICA !”

Written on: 20/04/2014

We have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday in Argentina and Brazil arranged for us by the advisor at Latin Routes. It was a pleasure to work with her who has lived and worked in South America and we certainly benefitted from her great knowledge of Argentina and its tourist industry. She understood very quickly what elements of a holiday we required and produced a perfect itinerary, including hotels, in less than 24 hours – we have never finalised a holiday so quickly! During our… Read Full Review

“Excellent travel agent”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by HBourner (1 review written)

We travelled to Argentina and Brazil with Latin Routes in March 2014. This was our first trip to South America and although I have organised holidays independently in the past, I was a little bit daunted about arranging this on my own. I contacted several travel companies and Jess was the first to respond with a phone call to get a clearer idea of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to get out of the holiday. Within a couple of days I had received an itinerary and quote, which Jess was… Read Full Review

“Argentina with Latin Routes”

Written on: 02/04/2014 by AlandGill (1 review written)

We had a fantastic time in Argentina thanks to Martin and Latin Routes. Martin was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and quick to answer any queries we had when planning our trip. He gave us good advice and helped us make the most of our time in Argentina. The choice of hotels was excellent, especially Loi Suites in Iguazu. We loved the pools at the hotel and a trip to the falls is a must as is a trip on the speedboats. Our airport pick ups took the stress out of arrivals and departures. All in… Read Full Review

“An Amazing Experience”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by HamzaLloyd22 (1 review written)

We had a fantastic hoiday in Argentina and Brasil. I had a conversation with latin Routes about what I wanted to see and the sort of hotels I liked to stay in and all the hotels that were booked were great and in fantastic locations. The Mine Hotel in Buenas Aires was in a great location where we could walk to loads of restuarants (which the hotel provided a list for and booked for us), went to La Boca and Recoleta both with a half day tour (organised by Latin Routes) and the by ourselves - a… Read Full Review

“Use Latin Routes!”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by KJD64 (1 review written)

Having had a bad experience with another travel agent, I found Latin Routes using Google and am extremely happy that I did. Abi phoned me in Cape Town the day after I made the online enquiry and produced a very professional itinerary for my Argentinian trip to Buenos Aires, El Calafate, Bariloche and Iguazu following our conversation. After some tweaking, Abi came up with everything I needed; flights, transfers, hotels and some tours - and I'm a very picky customer!! I had a wonderful holiday… Read Full Review

An advisor of Latin Routes was recommended by a friend. I contacted her in October 2013 for a tour End February beginning March 2014.We discussed where and how our group of 8 friends will be touring this continent in 2 weeks. She had planned the tour so that we can see the highlights of Rio Iguazu falls,Buenos Aires,Patagonia, Perito Moreno Glacier & Torres de Paine in Chile.Our internal flights were booked by her and all transports in every city was provided for. We had a welcoming letter… Read Full Review

“beautifully balanced trip”

Written on: 05/03/2014 by ilonajam (2 reviews written)

My trip over 6 weeks, starting in Rio and continuing through Argentina, Chile, Patagonia and the Antarctic was a beautifully balanced mix of vibrant cities, stunning landscapes and iconic features (Iguazu Falls, Perito Moreno Glacier, Torres del Paine, volcanoes and lakes near Puerto Varas, the Andes), and wildlife that I had not seen before and could see nowhere else. I knew little about South America and allowed Latin Routes to guide and advise through not just one proposed itinerary, but… Read Full Review

“Great experience thanks to expert local knowledge”

Written on: 25/02/2014 by TimLight99 (1 review written)

I wanted to do an Antarctic cruise, with a side trip to Iguazu Falls. Having never been to South America, I was a little daunted with all the logistics of internal flights and hotel bookings. Also I was struggling to find a cruise with free accommodation that I could afford. Martin Johnson of Latin Routes listened to my needs and helped me find what I wanted. First he set my expectations about what I could expect to pay, and what I would get for my money. Once I had taken this on board… Read Full Review

“Listening, Understanding and Personable - Great Qualities”

Written on: 21/02/2014 by DaveK65 (1 review written)

I started by outlining my situation (first solo trip after losing my wife) and then summarising the areas that I'd like to see and the types of activities that appeal to me. Whilst I was impressed with the first draft itinerary, I cannot praise highly enough the patience and willingness to discuss and revise the itinerary until it evolved into just the right package for me. Their knowledge of the country (Argentina) was exceptional, they were familiar with all the hotels and I wasn't able to… Read Full Review

Davek65's Response to DaveK65's Review

Written on: 10/05/2014

I have since completed my 'tailored' tour of Argentina and every aspect went as smoothly as I was promised. Quite a challenge as there was 6 internal flights, 6 hotels (all excellent but in different ways), a coach journey across the country, 12 taxi connections and an assortment of excursions. I had an absolutely wonderful time and saw some amazing sites and I'm now looking for an excuse to use Latin Routes again. I cannot praise them highly enough!

“extremely knowledable and efficient”

Written on: 14/02/2014

We booked a trip to Argentina and Antarctica with Latin Routes. Our agent, Martin was extremely helpful in putting together our itinerary and did everything he could to ensure that we were happy and that it was all at a price that was acceptable to us. I was most impressed by how quickly he responded to my email questions - and believe me I asked lots of questions!! Nothing was ever too much trouble and I wouldn't hesitate to use Latin Routes for our next trip to South America. The only thing… Read Full Review

“Fantastic personal, knowlegeable service”

Written on: 05/02/2014

We were planning a three month trip to Argentina and Chile and from the moment we met Jess at the Outdoor Show we knew we were on the same wavelength. We wanted to travel independently but equally wished to make sure we had pre-booked accommodation over Christmas and New Year and in popular tourist areas. The apartments and hotels she sourced for us were superb and it was great to have local contacts that we could have got in touch with if there were any problems. In the event, Latin Routes… Read Full Review

“Great trip with the stress of planning removed!”

Written on: 24/01/2014 by LouFowl (1 review written)

We are determinedly independent travellers and hate big tours, so were planning our own round-Argentina adventure, but found researching and booking internal flights and hotels a time-consuming. We also needed some good advice about where to go and what do (as well as how to avoid the crowds!). Martin and Jess at Latin Routes couldn't have been more helpful. They know what they are talking about, took all the hassle out of booking, made some great recommendations for things we wouldn't have… Read Full Review

“Once in a life time experience!”

Written on: 12/01/2014

Booked a once in a life time trip to Antarctica with Latin Routes. This is by far the best travel agent I have ever used. Martin was extremely helpful. The service, after care, recommendations provided were perfect. Every detail was catered for at a price that was surprisingly reasonable. I can't praise Martin at Latin Routes enough. The job they do and the friendly service they provide goes far beyond anything you can expect. Book with these guy and listen to what they say. They are simply the… Read Full Review

“Great Patagonian Experience”

Written on: 09/01/2014 by thebothofus (1 review written)

We found Latin Routes at the Destination Travel Show last year, and liked the fact that they specialise in a certain area of South America. We discussed our plans with them and very soon we received a comprehensive itinerary including a suggested 4 day cruise which we hadn't thought about - it was wonderful! They were very open to our ideas for various hotels, to the extent that they even checked out a couple in person! They did a brilliant job and we had a wonderful trip, and have no… Read Full Review

“Patagonia Holiday in November 2013”

Written on: 06/01/2014

We had been planning to visit Argentina and Chile for a number of years and discovered ‘Latin Routes’ at the 2013 Destinations show . As others have commented, we were immediately impressed by the first hand knowledge of the advisors. With the countries being so large it was impossible for us to see everything on the wish-list; our subsequent discussions narrowed the route, places and sights. They were also able to incorporate something not on their usual list of places but something that… Read Full Review

“Beyond all expectations!”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by BJandJK (1 review written)

Our Latin Routes itinerary suited us, two active retirees, perfectly. With infectious enthusiasm and detailed knowledge of all the places, our advisor quickly understood the type of holiday we wanted - adventure and contact with local people and plenty to do each day. Soon we had our preliminary details and, after many more of our questions, we had an action-packed, beautifully illustrated and very readable itinerary. We have just returned from a fantastic trip! Excellent English-speaking… Read Full Review
