Self-Drive Holiday to Chile and Argentina

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : The service from Rosie was excellent. Any queries that we had raised with her were answered promptly. Our tour of Chile and Argentina proved to be well organised and generally, the accommodation was varied and excellent. Unfortunately, Rosie could not teach us Spanish in time for the holiday!! We would recommend that you at least get some basic Spanish before travelling in this area.
Product : The 4 x 4 car was excellent and there were no problems. We would arrange and buy a holiday from Real World again.

Tailor-made holiday to Chile

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : We have just returned from our absolutely fabulous holiday in South America. All guides, drivers and hotel staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful.

At each destination our driver and or guide was waiting for us. All flights and excursions were well organised and tickets made available to us well in advance. We couldn’t have been happier with the arrangements made to ensure we had a trouble-free and totally enjoyable experience.

The choice of locations were stunning and the most spectacular was the Perito Moreno Glacier which was jaw dropping! The journey as you cross the Andes mostly by boat is amazing with crystal clear lakes, high mountains,volcanos and the condor circling high above.
Product : This holiday was excellent value, well organised and very memorable for its stunning scenery and the variety of locations


On 29-Mar-2018 the supplier responded:
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent holiday with us, and we're glad to hear you had such a fantastic time! The scenery is Patagonia is incredible, and we too think the boat trip across the Andes in the Lake District is a brilliant way to appreciate it. Let us know if you are planning a return trip to South America!

Tailor-made holiday to Peru

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : Absolute top notch service from Dan and the team. This was our first ever trip to South America, let alone Peru, and from the moment we contacted Dan there was a real sense that everything was going to be taken care of. We went through a number of different itineraries before we settled on our trip to Peru.

The team in Peru worked very well to make sure our visit was memorable, particularly Eliu and Elias in Lima, and Julio in Cusco. The trip was so well managed that we were never left waiting around or wondering what was happening. Every email and WhatsApp message during our trip was answered promptly. Eliu even went out of his way and brought us to an impromptu lunch in the Barranco district when we told him we wanted to try local cuisine. I was much obliged for that!

To all those representatives who met us at airports, train and bus stations, hotel lobbies, and brought us to wherever it was we were going, many thanks. To the many tour guides we had, especially Boneth in Cusco, and Joel in Machu Picchu, we could not have asked for more knowledgeable guides who really brought the history alive for us.

We had a really memorable trip, and we are already planning to travel to South America in the future with RealWorld Holidays. We could not have asked for better service.
Product : Excellent value for money for the superb level of service. All hotels were good quality, lunches and dinner included on a lot of trips, no waiting around for drivers, just so well managed all round.


On 01-Feb-2018 the supplier responded:
Thank you for taking the time to leave such detailed feedback, and thanks for including some of your holiday photos! We're so pleased to hear that all of our colleagues in Peru looked after you so well, and we'll be sure to pass on your kind comments. We can't wait to help you plan your next trip to South America!

Tailor made Holiday to Peru

Service rating : From start to finish of our trip we were extremely pleased by the service, care and attention of the detailed people who were allocated to be our guides, helpers and transporters. All accommodation were of an excellent clean standard, meals and breakfast excellent. All accommodation felt very friendly and secure. All modes of transportation were of a high standard. All tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful to our group. The cost of the holiday was very good considering the package we were offered with the different modes of transport e.g. planes, boats, trains, coaches, mini-buses, taxis and variety of hotels and a good mixture of historical sites visited during our 3 weeks stay.
Product : Extremely good value. A 'must do' in any persons life time.

Tailor-made holiday to Ecuador

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : As always, RealWorld Holidays deliver on high quality and service. We decided to go to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands with RealWorld Holidays again based upon on our incredible trip to Bolivia, Peru, Iguazu Falls and Brazil 2.5 years ago. It had always been a dream of ours to goto the Galapagos Islands and explore some of Ecuador in the process and we weren't disappointed with what we saw and experienced which was in main part down to the itinerary, standard of accommodation and guides who provided their local expert knowledge.
Product : Again, it had always been a dream of ours to venture to the Galapagos Islands and explore some of Ecuador in the process. We weren't disappointed. It was a marvellous and incredible trip that we will never forget.


On 12-Jan-2018 the supplier responded:
Thanks for your review, and we're so pleased to hear that your dream trip to the Galapagos lived up to expectations! Please don't hesitate to contact us in the future to help plan your next trip to South America!

Tailor made Holiday to South America

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : Real World were recommended to us when we were thinking about a South American holiday. We had some ideas but none of the travel agents we went to could help us, so we contacted Dan and Rosie at Real World. They were tremendous, offering suggestions about places that we didn't know about and offering advice. After numerous conversations and 5 different itineraries we agreed upon one.
Prior to departure they gave us booklets with advice about the different countries and places that we were visiting. These turned out to be very good.
The holiday itself ran like a dream, all our flights and transfers were sorted and we were met everywhere by English speaking local guides all of whom were cheerful, knowledgeable and helpful.
When we returned home after a month, we did not have any feelings of "i wish we had done that". which in itself says a lot for the company.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Real World to others and if we get chance to visit other places in the continent will definitely use them.
Product : see above for details....

Thanks for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback and we're so pleased you had such a great holiday! We'd love to hear from you in the future if you plan on returning to South America.

Tailor-made honeymoon to Peru

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : Thank you to Rosie and Dan for organising/planning our 18-day honeymoon to Peru. Rosie was especially amazing from the very beginning - always prompt in replying to every single query that came her way and extremely helpful in advising us for preparing for the trip especially the 4-day Inca Trail. Our itinerary covered Lake Titicaca (Puno), Cusco, Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and Mancora with several tours in Lake Titicaca and Cusco. A big thank you to Turismo Mer's Marita and Patricia who were angels and took amazing care of my husband who came down with altitude sickness on the day of the 10 hour tour bus trip from Puno to Cusco. Everything was well organised - we were picked up on time from the airports/stations, the hotels were all beautiful - especially El Mercado Hotel in Cusco, which was our favourite, the guides were all very friendly and helpful. Rosie was always contactable especially when we had a couple of questions whilst we were in Peru. Aside from the temporary altitude sickness, it was a perfect honeymoon. Our only negative feedback is that it was over too soon! We would definitely be calling upon RealWorld again to plan our next Latin America holiday!!
Product : Love Love Love Peru!! We definitely will come back again!


On 13-Oct-2017 the supplier responded:
Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback, and we're thrilled you had such a fantastic honeymoon! We will pass on your kind comments to all of our guides, especially Marita and Patricia. We're so pleased you loved the El Mercado hotel as much as we do, it is indeed a very special place. Hopefully we'll be able to help you plan another trip to South America very soon!

Rosie and Dan were really helpful right from our initial enquiry regarding the Lakes Loop fly drive to Chile and Argentina, plus Dan was really helpful while we were away emailing us some information. We had a fantastic time. The lakes, fjords, Andes and scenery were amazing. The weather could have been better ... but that was out of their control! We would definitely recommend this holiday, and RealWorld.

Tailor made holiday to Peru & Brazil

Service:++
Product:++

Service rating : A massive thanks to Rosie and Dan for excellent organisation, reassurance before the trip and wonderful service.

I'm so blessed that I chose your company and everything exceeded my expectations.


Your guides in Peru were especially remarkable. Julio Cesar was exceptional in his care, time and guidance towards me. Equally so were the guides for Iguazu and Rio.


There were some delays with internal flights but these were unavoidable.


Whilst I enjoyed every moment of the trip, my feedback regarding the City tour of Rio would be that, perhaps, they should have included the iconic Selaron steps as well.


The staff at Augusto Coppacobana were brilliant. Warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. Likewise, in the other accommodation.


All in all, I had an excellent opportunity that will be entrenched in my mind forever. Once again, thank you tremendously for this.
Product : Amazing and exactly what I wanted.
A perfect trip for those who are adventurous in spirit but practical in practice.
Loved the wonder after wonder and it was certainly a blissful high...


On 31-Aug-2017 the supplier responded:
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent trip with us, and we're so please to hear you had such a wonderful time! We are very proud to work with such fantastic guides, and we will be sure to pass on your kind words to them. If you need our help planning any future holidays we would be more than happy to assist!
