A trip to South America
By Karin Schill
(04/02/2015) Hanna Sundsäter has travelled with Machete Tours to South America in the fall of 2014. She went on the 24 days South American Tour. This is what she thought about our travel agency and the countries she visited.
1. Which countries and places did you visit on your trip?
I went on the longer South American Tour so I visited Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. I went to the Machu Picchu World Heritage Site, the salt desert in Bolivia, the Atacama desert in Chile and the Iguazu waterfalls in both Argentina and Brazil.
2. What was most memorable about your trip?
What’s most memorable for me is what I found most impressive. It was the visit to Machu Picchu, the Iguazu waterfalls and the whale safari in Argentina. It is hard to just chose a couple of things, since I would like to say that this entire journey has been the most memorable one I’ve ever taken.
3. Which country did you like the most?
It is hard to choose just one, but if I have to pick one it’s Peru. The reason for it is because it was the first country I went to and I spent more time there than in the other countries. The people were kind and helpful. It was really like you’ve seen on TV with traditional clothes and culture.
4. Which cultural differences did you notice?
In the big cities the culture wasn’t that different from at home. It was more noticeable in the smaller cities that had a more traditional culture, which is special for that country.
5. What was the best part about travelling with Machete Tours?
I am really satisfied with Machete Tours, I don’t think I could have had a better journey. Everything was so well arranged and a guide came to meet me at the airport or other places that I went to, everywhere I went and made sure that I arrived to the places I was supposed to go to. It felt really good.
6. What’s your impression of Machete Tours?
I think it feels like a good company. I felt safe and well taken care of during my entire journey.
7. Would you recommend Machete Tours to other people?
I will definitely recommend other people to travel with Machete Tours. It is a really good company with good organization skills and the staff really cares about their customers.
