Everything went perfectly - the guides were great - it was so fun -- thinking about Vietnam next year. Do you plan vacations there? Thanks again for all your help on this trip - again, it was excellent - will send some pics later -- thank you again!

Thank you very much for all your help. It was a great experience and I appreciate everything you did.

Thanks again.

Vikky . , California

Everything was FABULOUS! The entire trip was the BEST! We loved our stay in Panama, and everything was perfect. And Argentina was over the top. The hotels, guides, and personal care and attention were 10 stars! We were thrilled. Thank you again for such a memorable holiday.

The trip was absolutely amazing! I am very happy with the decision to go with Condor Tours and Travel. Capella Marigot Bay is a paradise that I would not have found on my own. It was the perfect place, and perfect vacation package for my budget.

Regarding the planning, everything was taken care of down to the last detail. Thanks for all of the suggestions and for answering my many questions. And I must point out that the hotel transfers to and from the hotel went smoothly and arrived early. Also Lori, thanks for calling to wish us a happy trip; that made us feel special before even going on the vacation. We feel like you all actually cared and were concerned about us having a memorable experience, and not only wanting to book just another vacation package. This was the best vacation planning experience ever, and also the best customer service I've experienced in a long time. Is it possible that you all could plan my life?

There is a saying, "Happy wife, happy life." My wife was very happy and this time I have to share the credit with Condor Tours and Travel. Thanks and big hugs to you both. I very much look forward to booking the next vacation with Condor Tours and Travel!

Chile

Lori, We had a wonderful time!! The tour guides you provided were terrific. Our guide in Lima was a wealth of information and hysterically funny. We learned a lot and laughed until we cried. Our guide in Santiago was also great. Your selection of the winery was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful and the staff was very efficient. The food, the wine tasting and the people made this overnight trip a "blast". The airport hotel was super (sooooo close to the airport it made it a great connection). Our guide got us all confirmed and we made it to the gate with a breeze. He was going to meet us upon our return to Santiago, he wanted to be sure I had a wheelchair (my knees and back were giving me problems) and that we got to the gate in time. When we arrived in Santiago on our return they had a wheelchair at the gate and they wheeled us right to our departure gate. So please pass our "Thanks" to him since we never had the chance to see him and thank him.

The Easter Island portion of our trip was spectacular. The accommodations were superior ..the staff at Hare Noi was amazing and the tour guides were both exceptional and funny. We walked, climbed, laughed, etc. I think we saw everything there was to see. We made great friends. I would recommend the Hare Noi without hesitation.

Thanks to you and to your staff!!!

Barb B. , Washington

Lori, Thanks for setting up our wonderful trip to Chile. Petrohue Lodge was awesome and the guided trips (rock climbing, trekking, zipline, whitewater rafting) were great. The excursions were generally strenuous and exciting, not boring tours. Cumbres Atacama was also a great hotel... One day we actually hired our own driver for our own private excursion. All pickups and drivers went smoothly. Overall, it was a trip to remember.

Costa Rica

Hi Lori,

This note is a long time coming. Last year my wife and I took a cruise from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. Our travel agent, Joyce Violet of Aircruise & Tours, arranged hotel and private car transferred through you to the Gaia Hotel.

This was our first visit to the country and the hotel. We found the hotel to be first class (5 Stars). First, the driver was waiting on the pier for us as we departed the ship. As a matter of fact he had made contact with the ship to see if we had disembarked or not. His vehicle was clean and he was courteous although his English was modest, but certainly miles ahead of our knowledge of Spanish. While driving to the hotel he stopped at a store for a restroom break. When we got back to the car he was waiting with two bottles of chilled water. We then went across the river and he again stopped so we could walk back on the bridge and view a group of crocodiles sunning themselves on the shore.

Shortly after that one of the owners of the hotel called him on his cell phone to check on our progress and then speak to us and welcome us to Costa Rica. That was a first ever experience like that. Upon arrival at the property, one of the owners, Thomas, was on hand to greet us and supervise the transfer of our luggage from the car to the hotels carts. We soon found that nearly all of the staff spoke good English and it seemed to us that they had been trained by one of our favorite cruise lines (Regent, Seven Seas or Crystal Line). They were most accommodating, knew the property well and were most anxious to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. After checking in we proceeded to our room (suite?) and found it to most spacious, clean, well decorated and first class. We chose the master bedroom and settled in. The living room in the unit had a flat screen TV, music system, lots of comfortable furniture. This unit could easily accommodate 4-6 people without falling over each other. It also had a connecting door in the living room so that two families traveling together could move between the units on that level.

We had dinner in the hotel dining room and had an excellent meal. The 2 or 3 pools were most inviting. The second day we took a shuttle cart down to the main gate and asked for a ride into town. Thomas again was on hand and told us that he would take us in. He took one of the hotel’s cars and drove us around. He didn’t just take us to down, but did a mini tour including detailed information about the area and the development of the property. We did discover that the support staff, maids, bus boys and gardeners did not speak much if any English, but were courteous and helpful.

I would heartily recommend your service and this property to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio area.

Next we had another private car take us to San Jose, the capital, where we stayed the Marriott by the airport. The reception desk was fine, the food 3 or 4 stars, the waiter 5 stars.... We had an early morning plane and had to be picked up at 0600. While closing one of our bags the zipper failed and the hotel located a maintenance man with a roll of duct tape to solve our dilemma. The day in between we had a Canopy Tour (Zip line) and White Water Rafting trip. The ride was lengthy in the car over not first class roads. The driver was waiting for us and his van was clean. Upon arrival at the base camp we found that we were the only people who had reservations for the zip lines and raft trip. We truly enjoy zip lines this one was very good. Because we were the only ones on the trip there was no waiting and the guides paced it to our desires. The last run was back to base camp over a valley and river. We had a good lunch and then the White Water Rafting. Again we were the only ones so had a personalized trip. Since it had rained the preceding two days we also had a scout guide in a kayak go ahead of us. That guide took my wife’s waterproof digital camera and got some great shots of us. We would give that tour a 4.5 to 5.0.

Thank you again for excellent accommodations at the Gaia Hotel, the drivers and the Canopy/White Water trip.

Bert M. , Washington

The honeymoon was great. I would recommend The Springs Resort to everybody going to that area. The volcano walk and zip lining Tour were fun. We got some really good pictures. The canyoneering tour was amazing. I would recommend that one to everybody as well. Lots of fun and good food at the end. The RIU was nice, but not as nice at the Springs. Still, overall a nice resort. All ground services were on time and in nice vehicles.

Keith M. , Illinois

Muchas Gracias Pacuare Lodge proprietor and dedicated staff! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our lodge, the food and service were world class! We praise God for creating such a wonderful river, rainforest, the birds, fauna, and all the living creatures within the 340 hectares.

We also thank you for caring so much about preserving the surrounding eco-system and helping the neighboring population and villages. The Pacuare Lodge culture is incredible and will long be one of our fondest memories.

Jerry B. , Georgia

Thank you for being one of the people who made my recent visit to Costa Rica such a memorable event!

This trip to Costa Rica was a dream come true for me. Many years ago, I was provided an opportunity to visit your beautiful country but I became ill and unable to travel at that time. After all these years, the opportunity arose once again and I decided to visit Costa Rica! I have so many wonderful stories to share!

My best to you!

Phyllis W. , Georgia

The trip was great - the white water rafting, canyoning and zip-lining were especially good. We also signed up for a combined ATV + zip lining tour on our open day and that was really good as well.

The accommodations were good - we don't spend a lot time in the rooms awake, so that is not something on which we focus.

Everyone had a really good time, and the trip seemed to end too soon. Once again, thank you for helping put this together.

Mark B. , New Jersey

For our holiday to Costa Rica this year, Condor Tours and Travel were a pleasure to work with. This is a result of their flexibility in making a number of modifications to their Classic + Beach itinerary specific to our particular interests. Changes included using the hotels we chose to stay at, changing the number of days in specific locations and altering their beach location to the one that we wanted to visit.

When we arrived in San Jose their knowledgeable representative greeted us at the airport. On our ride to the hotel he presented us with our travel vouchers and reviewed them with us to ensure that everything was in order for our two week Costa Rican vacation. Everything was in order and well presented. All of our pre-planned tours, pick up times for transportation and hotel reservations took place without any problems. This is a credit to the efficient organizational abilities of Condor Tours and Travel and their choice of top quality local professional services. It made for a worry free holiday for my wife and I.

This is the second year in a row that we have been involved with Condor in planning a holiday specific to our requests. They are first class specialists to work with, they sincerely care about their clients and do everything they can to meet the needs of their customers. I look forward to planning another holiday with them and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Cruises

Everything went so smoothly. All our luggage was transferred from place to place promptly, tour guides were full of information and a sense of humor - always important in that kind of job. The ship was enjoyable with so many activities to fill the down time.

And we had such a good group of people. So glad Gail and Bob invited us. So, thanks again... I hope we get to meet with you again.

Cuba

Hi Pat, Cuba was great. Our guides and drivers were very organized, knowledgeable and accommodating. Thanks for the help in setting up this tour.
Simon B. , Florida

I want to thank you for arranging my latest trip to Havana. I want to particularly thank Condor for their efforts.

Specifically, the guide they found for me was fantastic. He more than met my expectations as he worked tirelessly on my behalf. Beyond adjusting to my expressed preferences, he continuously reviewed and took note of my needs.

Often, the relationship between guide and guest can be strained and uncomfortable. My guide's commitment and enthusiasm made the relationship more that of friends than of employer/employee. I would enthusiastically and unhesitatingly recommend him to your future clients.

Feel free to share my thoughts with Condor, expressing to them my great appreciation for their work. This being only my most recent trip to Havana, I do have some experience with the travel agencies that serve the city. None have come close to the quality that Condor provided.

A. B. ,

Michael was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and humorous. Also, worked around our desires to make a few alterations.

The hotels, beaches and resorts are world-class. Somehow I failed to grasp the reality that the rest of the world is doing business with Cuba, and has done so for decades.

Thank you for organizing a wonderful trip. Our four companions were wonderful, too, and made the trip more interesting by being able to share different perspectives.

Ecuador

Our trip to Quito and the Galapagos was a very well planned trip from start to finish. The Legend was above our expectations and the crew was superb in all they did. They were considerate, helpful and very careful in handling us debarking and embarking the ship twice a day. (That had me a little worried as I have bad knees.) It was our choice to skip one walking tour over a rocky terrain which was rated difficult and we spent a very relaxing half day on the ship. The meals on board were delicious and included a variety of Ecuadorean specialties which were well-received by the passengers. We especially enjoyed the 3 nights in the 2 Quito hotels - they were among the most charming we have experienced. Fabian, our guide, spoke excellent English and his tour to the "Equator Line" was a major highlight of the trip! We would certainly use Condor Tours again!

Joan and Jerry D. , Florida

Hi Lori, I do want to let you know directly how much we enjoyed the trip and to thank you for all of your work on our behalf. From the beginning, you were very responsive and willing to make multiple adjustments to help us arrive at a price that worked for us. While we were gone, your responsiveness was very much appreciated, the Latin Trails folks had amazing follow up also. Specifically, we really enjoyed all of the tours and learned a lot!! Airport and train transfers were all done in a timely manner, even if our travels were delayed. We could always count on the rep to meet us. The transfer shuttles/cars/vans were clean and we always felt safe with the drivers. The process of the guides checking us in for internal flights was so very helpful - the Galapagos check in especially, was quite confusing. It was wonderful to be able to trust the guides to help us out with all of this. The hotels were amazing!! The Inkaterra facilities and the Boutique Hotel in Cusco were standouts! The meals supplied were all very good, again the Inkaterra at Aguas Calientes was excellent in this regard. We felt very well taken care of......Latin Trails was calling the hotel each night before a pick up to confirm the time and they were always on time. All tour guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They were all terrific. The sites and adventures that you selected for us, were right on - so enjoyed our visits everywhere. Peter's favorite was the Galapagos, my favorites were either the Amazon or Macchu Pichu. The small boat in the Galapagos was just right for us - we sure enjoyed the crew, tour guide and the other travelers, some of whom we met up with on other portions of our trip and enjoyed catching up with them. The train/bus up to Aguas Caliente/Macchu Pichu both worked out really well - no issues, all went very smoothly. We appreciated having a rep meet us at the train and take us through the boarding process. What a magnificent site! Know that we had a wonderful time and it wouldn't have been possible without all of your planning and very hard work to put this trip together for us. Thank you so very much.
Jane and Peter B. , Nevada

We had a wonderful journey, hotels mostly very good, tour guides very helpful and knowledgeable, sometimes difficult to understand due to accents. Guide in Quito was very good (he only had the 2 of us to tour around) and managed to get us into the Executive line at the airport along with other Latin Trails travelers. Loved all the places we saw and the scenery everywhere was fantastic. Galapagos was so interesting, and the animals were prolific and so incredible. The Odyssey and crew were terrific. They were ALL very careful with all of us getting in and out of the Xodiacs, helping us in and out of live vests... Our naturalist (Christian was his name) was excellent and made it fun for all of us. He does his job very well.The combination of nationalities on the cruise was GREAT! We were the only Americans (born),German couple, Swiss family of 4, Israeli father and son recently moved to Texas and naturalized, British couple & a single Brit man and 2 male Ecuadorean photographers creating a piece for the company. Everyone was good about eating with different people each time we sat, and that made it most interesting. English was predominant. Food was very good, colorful and healthy. We appreciated the fact that each time we returned to the boat after an activity, especially snorkeling, that a snack was organized on the deck to refresh us.

In the travel business, you think that you have all the bases covered, but inevitably, something will come up, but the difference between a mediocre supplier and an outstanding one like Condor Tours and Travel is the assistance they give to you when needed in a timely manner. Lori certainly shined when you needed advice and assistance. Choosing a reliable supplier is very important to every travel agent, and that is why I contact Lori for my Central and South America clients. I know that both me as an agent and my client will receive the care and attention before and more importantly, during the trip. It is music to my ears when a client returns home and has had a fantastic and memorable experience. Thanks to Lori and her professional team both in the United States and in South and Central America for their 5 star service.

Buenos Dias Lori,

We returned safe and sound from our trip last Friday and I have been anxious to sit down and write you about our experience. First, I have to say that the entire two weeks went off without a hitch and everyone we met from Condor Travel were as good as it gets.

Beginning with our arrival at Quito, we had a great time in the city, exploring, eating, walking, taking in the sites. We were there on a Sunday and got to experience the open air market and street closure so families could stroll and enjoy the day in the town squares. We felt like locals! The Hotel Andaluz Patio was wonderful as was the food. The day we were leaving, the President's motorcade drove right by us on his way to the Presidential Palace.

The Seaman Journey - We could have stayed an extra couple of days it was so amazing. Each day was different and the animals/birds/fish all put on a show for us! We loved the boat life and thank you, thank you, thank you for insisting we take the matrimonial suite. It was private, roomy, and comfortable, and very clean. Our guide Camello, was awesome and the staff so friendly and attentive. I don't know how he does it, but the chef was incredible!!! Our meals and snacks were healthy, delicious, and creative.

We so enjoyed the structure of each day, our panga trips to the islands and our hikes/swims/snorkeling. I think the highlight was the snorkeling at Devils Crown. It took your breath away. We swam with thousands of beautiful fish, sharks, turtles, rays, sea lions. It was just amazing. The blue footed boobies were delightful and so interesting to watch; we saw the first arrival of the Albatross on the islands for the season. Also 3 Galapagos' hawks that had not been seen for a while and an abundance of iguanas, turtles and sea lions. We so enjoyed our hikes and swims - the weather was hot and humid but perfect.

Peru - So amazing and when i walked through the gate at Machu Picchu, I cried. Everything we did in Peru was so interesting, amazing and enlightening. All the ruins, the salt mines, the agriculture ruins were incredible, Saqsaywaman. The itinerary couldn't have been better - kept us busy but we loved every minute. All our guides were wonderful - Efrian (Quito), Camello (Seaman Journey), Washington, Elliot, Percy (Machu Picchu) - distinctive personalities with an obvious passion for their country and their heritage. All the hotels were first class. We loved the Hotel B in Lima but got there late at night (10:30) and left first thing in the morning - we all would have liked more time there but I know we gave you a time frame due to work schedules.

We cannot say enough about Peru - the people - the history - the food - the terrain - the archaeology - We loved it! We would definitely go back to both Ecuador and Peru - maybe an Amazon river trip??? We had perfect weather in Peru as well. The day we went to Machu Picchu, it started out gloriously beautiful and then about 1:30 the rain came (but only for about 30 or 45 minutes). That night, it rained most of the night (the Inka Terra was a perfect hotel for listening to the rain) and when we ascended Machu Picchu the 2nd day, it was very magical and mysterious - shrouded in clouds/fog coming in and leaving and doing the fog dance. We got there early and did the Bridge Hike and seemed to have the place to ourselves for a while. I loved the trail to the bridge. We originally planned to go to Sun Gate, but because of the rain/clouds it wasn't possible to see the sun rise and our guide said he thought the hike to the bridge was more interesting....we really enjoyed it and enjoyed being on our own as well.

Thank YOU, Sue, and all your staff for your hard work and making this trip The Best Trip Ever!!! Muchos gracias para todo - abrazos y besos!!!

Dear Lori and staff at Condor Tours & Travel

Our most recent trip this past May 2016 with Condor Tours & Travel was a combined trip to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu. The dates for our adventure were based upon good information from Condor. The weather at Machu Picchu was clear and bright and we could access all parts of the sight. As well, their recommendation for going to the Galapagos at the end of warm season gave us the benefit of warm water for snorkeling and observing a multitude of bird and animal species.

During the planning stages, my wife and I really appreciated the flexibility demonstrated by Condor in allowing us to choose the hotels that we would be staying in. Trying to keep within budget constraints and yet have quality accommodation, all of the hotels were clean, well appointed and the staff was first rate. From the time that we finalized the trip to our departure date, a period of seven months, Condor made us aware of airline developments or the need to make minor itinerary adjustments. These were done quickly and efficiently by them based on their expert advice.

Upon our arrival in Ecuador we spent three nights in Quito, which included a full day tour of the city, and then onto the Galapagos. Our tour of the Galapagos was four nights/four days aboard the MV Eden. Condor provided us with several recommendations for a sixteen-passenger vessel and we chose the Eden based upon its itinerary and cost. Even though it was rated as three stars, everything about the ship, its crew and the services provided were five stars. The crew was friendly, helpful and displayed a wonderful sense of humor with the passengers. Our on board guide and naturalist for the island tours was extremely knowledgeable, well organized, friendly and considered the passengers opinions, where possible, when planning our daily itineraries. The Galapagos experience was beyond all expectations. My wife and I both wish that we could have had another evening on the vessel and a few days to visit Port Ayore.

After the Galapagos we overnighted in Lima on our way to the Machu Picchu leg of our adventure. This portion of our trip included six different transfers between hotels, airports or train stations, five different tours and five hotels. Condor’s meticulous organization made all travel between locations, transfers to and from hotels to airports seamless. Drivers and tour company reps arrived for hotel or airport pick up on time, were courteous and their assistance at the airports was invaluable. Our journey included four private tours and one that was part of a group. Each of the tour guides spoke very good English, presented themselves in a professional manner, was knowledgeable about the sight that was being visited, readily answered questions and maintained a pace that was comfortable for enjoying the specific location.

We have had the pleasure and success now in arranging three trips with Condor and will continue to use their services in the future. Lori and her staff are professional, knowledgeable and go out of their way to make visiting other countries a memorable experience. Our bucket list still has many locations to visit and we will be using Condor to help us “check off” the list.

Good morning Pat!

My apologies for the late response, but I wanted to make sure that I responded in regards to your efforts and dedication surrounding this vacation. WE had a MARVELOUS time Pat and wanted to send you a HUGE hug and thank you for your efforts in making this the most memorable trip ever! I was so worried and even felt a little silly for contacting you in regards to transportation surrounding the hotels in Venice and Florence. =) They were ridiculously close to the train station and we couldn't have been more appreciative of that. We were especially pleased at the organization and timeliness of everything and everyone involved... considering we didn't provide you all a whole lot of pre-planning for this trip, everything was pretty seamless. Thank you, Thank you and THANK YOU so much...we look forward to planning our next adventure with you all and cannot stop talking about how great Condor Travel was to us.

I want to say that all of us would use Condor Tours again. You and your company are very professional and some of us are already talking about another tour next year. The accommodations were wonderful, the trip over all - very good. Once again, thank you for everything and we will be in touch.

Hi Lori, We had a good time, everything went smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thank you.

Panama

Lori,

Sorry this has taken so long to get to you but I did want to send something in writing even though I have expressed my appreciation to you in person. Trudy and I had a great time in Panama for my 40th Class Reunion in March. Since my mother still lives there, I have been to Panama over ten times after graduation, but this is the first trip where I let someone else make the arrangements. This is definitely the way to go!

The benefits of not having to worry about getting from the airport to the hotel in the incredible Panamanian traffic, especially at night, was worth whatever premium we paid. The accommodations were excellent. We made our own booking for the last night when we returned from David and I must note that we were on the rear side of the hotel, overlooking the gas storage tanks and not on the front looking out over the canal as with your accommodations. You definitely have some connections!

All the activities were well planned and went very smoothly. Having the small bus to take us from place to place with a driver and tour guide was indeed a blessing. Although most of us had grown up in Panama, it was most interesting to have someone explain the changes. The guides and drivers were incredibly courteous, professional, informative and friendly. I realize that you work with some local firms to provide the services, but I would be hard pressed to tell who worked for Condor or for another company. It was all very seamless. We heard a number of complaints from those who did not make the arrangements through Condor, and who, to save a few dollars made their own plans, regarding the royal treatment we were getting which they did not have.

Finally, and I could add a number of other instances where Condor and your staff excelled, I truly appreciated all the follow up before the trip to make sure we had all the necessary paperwork for a smooth trip and stay. I would highly recommend Condor to anyone who is traveling to Panama and I am sure your other excursions are as professional as to this destination. I would certainly consider traveling with Condor again.

Trudy and I thank you and all your staff.

Paul R. , New York

Hello Lori, Your suggested itinerary and arrangements worked out very well. We particularly liked El Valle and Boquete and very much appreciated the hotels at these places - both pretty unique. Also we did a number of good walks in both places. You may be familiar with La India Dormida, the Pipe Line Trail and others. Anyway thank you again for your help. Richard and Sue
Richard C. , Great Britain

Hello Lori! You so nicely put together our Balboa High School Class of 82 trip to Panama last July. As I reflected on the year recently, my trip to Panama was truly a highlight of the year. I wanted to thank you for putting together such a great trip! We had wonderful side trips, fantastic places to stay (especially the Sheraton Bijao), excellent tour guides and bus drivers, etc. It was just a wonderful trip and thank you!! Happy New Year! Molly
Molly H. , California

We had a very nice time! It was great to go to the different locations with different climates.

El Otro Lado was very unique and the cottage was excellent. We were right in the water. It was very interesting having meals in the dining room. Very private with so few guests. The food was excellent.

The Panamonte was very nice too. Our room was great. We had a fireplace on our porch. The rafting was great and the zip line was fun. Food was very reasonable.

The Bristol was terrific. The rooms were very elegant. The tour worked out great.

Thanks for everything! Brian

Brian L. , Illinois

Lori, just wanted to thank you for helping us have a wonderful vacation. Everything went so smoothly (even the flat tire on the van that picked us up at the airport was part of the adventure) and everyone was so friendly. Margarita was wonderful and really made our trip so special. Both resorts were beautiful and wonderfully different. Such a special trip and made very relaxing due to all your planning. We had a wonderful dinner at Las Clemintinas in Casco Viejo if anyone ever needs a recommendation for dinner. The only thing I did not get to do was Napoli. Next time. Sue
Susan H. , Pennsylvania

For a five night stay in Panama City, my wife and I used Condor Tours and Travel for hotel & airport transport, arranging tickets for the Partial Canal tour as well as ground transportation to and from Flamenco Pier and a private half day city and canal tour (Miraflores Locks Museum and Observation Building).

Ground transportation was excellent. The driver was punctual and the vehicle very clean. Our driver’s English was on the same level as our knowledge of Spanish and we had fun trying to communicate with each other. Our tour guide for the half-day city and canal tour was extremely knowledgeable and presented interesting facts about the history of Panama City during our tour of Casco Viejo and Panama Viejo. She answered our many questions about life in Panama, other places to visit in the city and was a very good person to have as our introduction to Panama.

We are planning other trips to Central and South America and will not hesitate to have Condor Tours and Travel help us with our preparation.

Ted D. , British Colombia

Dear Lori,

I want to thank you for putting together an absolutely awesome trip to Panama. Considering that we represented 4 generations, it had to be a challenge and it turned out great.

I did back down on the zip line. Figured at age 77, I didn't need to do that. Shelly and Cody loved it and said that I would have liked it too. On the jungle boat tour we opted for fishing instead of kayaking, and it was good to have a choice that wasn't quite so physical.

Both hotels were wonderful. The Gamboa Resort and Tours were our favorite. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. We got back late from the jungle boat tour and a marina employee actually took us up to the hotel in his pickup.

The Westin Playa Bonita was beautiful and sooo modern. Loved the view of Taboga Island which brought back happy memories.

Again, thank you so much for our wonderful trip to Panama.

Foremost, my family agreed this was one of the BEST family vacations for a host of reasons.

The group you use to supply the driver / guide is top notch. It was great having all the logistics taken care of - someone came the night we arrived to discuss the trip - she was energetic, friendly and great - the company you used for the logistics gets a 5 out of 5 star rating!

The Panamanians were as I remember - wonderful and cordial. The Canal tour was awesome as recommended by Lori. The last day visiting the Santa Clara Beach was awesome - got burned like I used to when in High School!

We had a great time and everything went seamlessly - great job Condor!

Ciao, Ray
Ray F. , California

Hi Lori-

Just wanted to thank you, Susan, Hannah and the rest of the Condor Team for a very enjoyable family vacation. Gamboa was really beautiful and the hotel was excellent. We had a lovely meal in the Chagres Restaurant and enjoyed the wildlife around the hotel during the day.

The Jungle Boat Tour was really enjoyable.

The bus transport [to El Valle] was very comfortable. The zoo was the highlight of the El Valle Tour although we did enjoy the walk through of "El Chorro Macho" Waterfall.

We enjoyed the couple days at the Decameron - relaxing on the beach and in the pools. The facilities at the beach were in good shape.

The tour to Miraflores was very educational.

Bristol Hotel was lovely and well situated. The group really enjoyed it. The partial tour of the Panama Canal was the highlight of our vacation along with the Jungle Boat Tour. The transportation to the Flamenco Pier from Bristol, to Flamenco from Gamboa and back to Bristol was on time and comfortable.

In summary, we had a great time and were extremely pleased with the travel/accommodation arrangements made by Condor. We put this as one of the best vacations we have had. In closing, on behalf of our family, I would like to thank you and your entire team for a most enjoyable vacation and a job well done.

I would definitely recommend Condor to our friends and hopefully we can do business together again in the future.

Almost forgot - Margarita was very helpful and we always got through to her when we rang.

All the Best and Bye.

Charles

Charles T. , Trinidad

Hello Lori,

Returned late last night. Wanted to drop you an email and let you know what a great job you did for us. Especially enjoyed the Recontur staff, and the tours were perfect as scheduled.

We will recommend you to friends and family without hesitation.

Just wanted to touch base with you one more time regarding our recent visit to Panama. We really enjoyed getting to see different parts of Panama, and with your help, the trip went very smoothly. Casco Viejo was one of the highlights: imagine where it will be in 5 years! We really loved Las Clementinas, and our hike every day up to the top floor got us in shape for things to come! The restaurant at the hotel and Tantalo were our favorites.

Boquette was a beautiful area; we enjoyed the birds and the coffee plantation tour, but must admit, the weather was too cool for us trying to get out of the New York winter weather. The staff was also very attentive and kind.

Really loved La Loma Jungle Lodge! We felt we were part of nature.Three sides of the Rancho were open to the air with a wall behind the bed, where the bathroom was located. We felt as if we were in a nest! The owners, Henry and Margaret and their help, Jack and Bri, were warm and helpful. They prepared 3 knock out meals a day which rivaled food prep in NYC!

Your staff and you were extremely proficient in dealing with our needs during the trip and we thank you. We will recommend you to our friends!

My decision to visit Panama, a little late out the door, was made in late December for an early February trip. I contacted five tour companies and within an hour I received a return email from Lori Snow at Condor. Lori then spent the next week fine-tuning my trip on an almost hourly basis. I requested a private tour, with boutique hotels, that balanced a heavy dose of nature, indigenous and folkloric culture, the Canal and the contemporary art world of Panama. As I am on the west coast and Condor Tours and Travel are on the east, Lori was working 12-15 hour days to serve me. The first week I think I monopolized Lori’s every waking hour. During the following weeks I still had many questions about every detail. Lori was always “service with a smile,” often calling me by phone to discuss my concerns. The trip had the exact mix that I requested. I was pleased that the Canal components were scheduled at the beginning and end of the trip, so that my husband could have an engineering immersion before and after my mola shopping. We had a couple of good hikes, saw lots of rain forest, one amazing petroglyph, and several not so amazing glyphs, three kinds of monkeys, and amazing tropical flowers and birds. I had some very personal interactions with the Kuna, Embera, and Ngobe Bugle peoples as well as some descendants of the slaves from the Congo. We also loved the folkloric dinner theater experience in Panama City. Ok we didn’t love the food, but the dancing and music were great! Lori’s ground crew in Panama were careful to get us where we needed to be on time, even if it once required a 4:30 am pick-up. I was particularly grateful for the three days that we had with their guide Roberto. Roberto knew his history, his flora and fauna. But more then that, Roberto’s warmth and willingness to field questions on every topic gave our visit so much more depth. He even found for us a cashew fruit and a howler monkey, just because I mentioned I had never seen either. And thank you to Rafael, who managed to find every contemporary art gallery in town, via his personal social network. The ground crew was frequently on the phone with us, just to check in. Lori happened to be in Panama while we were in Panama so we had a live chat in country, and five days back into the states I received a follow up phone call from Lori. Thank you Lori Snow for all of the personal SERVICE!

The trip was wonderful and everything worked like clockwork.... All trips were well planned and Roberto and Margarita were a joy and full of interesting information....the staff at the hotels were so friendly and accommodating. The grounds at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort were breathtaking. I have passed this on to others. The ads on the Internet did not give justice to the Resort. It was even difficult to capture it in our photos. I will be sure to share my experience with others at the Reunion next year. Again, thanks to you and your staff for making this trip so memorable.

Making the 100 year trip to Panama was one of the biggest events in my life. After being away for 61 years, one cannot imagine how impressed I was with the changes that had been going on in Panama. Ever since my return to the United States, I have been writing about the joy that I experienced on this trip, which was so very well-planned by Condor Tours & Travel. At first I was concerned about the food and the water, but, as it turned out, everything was excellent as far as food, and the water was from the Chagres River, so who can complain about that? I was surprised at how well I felt even in the high temperatures and the humidity during the rainy season.

One of the highlights of the trip was the Jungle Boat tour, because I was actively involved in kayaking up to a waterfall.

Visiting the Embera Indian Village up the Chagres River gave me a different perspective on my wants and needs in this life, for they seem like such a contented people with so very little. On this tour, I went to places that I had never seen before, even though I was born and raised in the Canal Zone.

Lori and her staff did an outstanding job in the planning and organizing of each event. My only regret is that I did not take a tour before now. I am looking forward to the opportunity of going on another tour with Lori and her staff.

Thank you so much for all that was done to make this a most outstanding tour.

Dear Sue,

I wish to take a moment to tell you that the remainder of our trip in Panama was quite lovely. The Westin provided the R&R that we desparately needed and the Le Meridien went out of their way to assure a very comfortable stay. We were particularly impressed with Recontur. Otto drove us multiple times... and Connie was our tour guide. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable.

Thank you once again for your assistance. You and the Condor staff were great.

We hope to tackle South America one day and I will be in touch when we are ready!

Hi Lori, Wow!! You put together an amazing package for us and we all had such a great time!

We had a full and enjoyable tour of Old Panama. I must tell you, that [our guide] was just wonderful. She is full of enthusiasm and knows Panama well, having been raised there. A real highlight was the Miraflores locks, and delicious lunch buffet and lots of time to see the ships and have a great visual of how the locks work. Standing high up on the observation deck gave us a perfect viewing area.

Another great experience was staying at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. It really gave the feeling of being in the interior of Panama as we looked out over the jungle greenery and the Chagres river. It was well worth staying there, because of the 2 tours you planned for us, the Embera Indian Village, and the Jungle Boat Tour. These were both incredible, and I am so glad they were included. For me, personally, I will rate the Embera Indian trip as the best, basically because, even though it was a tour, it felt the most natural and untouristy. These people are just lovely, and beautiful, and peaceful, and seem to have strong character about them. I just loved the experience! The experience of the canoe, and going deep into the jungle and then wading and walking and climbing over the last big rock to the gloriously refreshing waterfall and pool was amazing. Then coming back to the village many family members came down the hill to greet us with smiles and even the men playing instruments. And in a large raised hut the Indian chief told about their about their history of his great grandfather coming from Columbia to bring his people out of the atmosphere they were experiencing with drugs and violence, made me admire and appreciate them and their lifestyle. He gave us opportunity to ask questions, and was in no hurry as he talked with us. There is so much I could say, about how nicely we were served lunch, and the enjoyment of the villagers dancing for us.

The Jungle Boat Tour was also such a hit. It was fun having such a special spot in the setting of the jungle and river and enjoying time of relaxation. The kayak trip was great. There was a refreshing treat at the end as again we waded and walked on the trail to arrive at a waterfall and swimming hole. We returned back to the floating lodge and we had been back only a few minutes when a large alligator, at least 10 feet long, came slowly and nonchalantly swimming by near the shore by the lodge. It was as if by cue that he came by.

Thank you Lori for making this event possible and so enjoyable.

Lori, Condor Tours, planned a custom tour for our group of 17 former Zonians and families, and it was the adventure of a lifetime. Our excellent guide Connie grew up in the same town that I lived in, graduated from BHS, and our driver David was always on time and very pleasant. We did a partial transit, took the train to Atlantic side, rode in cayuco to Embera Indians, climbed a river to a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole, visited the cemetery where family members are interred, stood at the top of Quarry Heights overlooking the entrance to the canal, went to El Valle, swam at Santa Clara, and much more. Hotel accommodations were perfect. Lori planned a trip in 2011 with 13 other cousins, and we are working with her for a trip in June 2015.

Dear Sue,

We so enjoyed our trip to Panama City and appreciate all the arrangements you made for us. We were so grateful for our driver, Leonardo La Moth and our guide, Connie... she was EXCELLENT. They both did an outstanding job of guiding us around PC and giving us all the info we wanted about the city, the Canal, and life in general in Panama. They both were very friendly,eager to please, and adaptable to our interests. Our hotel was excellent as well. We will be happy to deal with your agency in the future if we need help with our travel plans.

My son and I traveled to Panama 1-9 December 2015. He was born there and was only three years old the last time he was there. I was raised in the former Canal Zone and wanted to share in the culture and environment I experienced. When I won the Condor tour to Isla Palenque, opportunity presented itself. Lori Snow was quick and responsive to all my questions, cost concerns, and additional time in country following our island adventure. All our flight arrangements, transit pickups, and the resort/hotel accommodations were awesome. From the rain forest environment to the incredible canal expansion experience, lifetime memories past and present were enshrined in my son and I. Our thanks to all who assisted in making this trip possible.
Michael B. , Alabama

We had a WONDERFUL time in Panama! Thank you for planning out such a PERFECT getaway! I absolutely have to have you commend our guide, Marguarite, to her local travel company. She was FANTASTIC, KNOWLEDGEABLE, ENERGETIC, AND MADE OUR WHOLE TRIP AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please make sure she gets word back on how great she was (the coach drivers were great as well!) and make sure you try to ask for her to work with your local clients as they will LOVE her!

Thanks for planning such a great trip for us

Paul and Sylvia C. , Illinois

Hi Lori! I just spoke with Mrs. R., they LOVED their guide, Margarita and driver, Luis that they had while in Panama. “Margarita was amazing” and great with the children. The children had the best time ziplining. They also appreciated having the VIP arrival service, husband loved it! They zipped right through customs while others waited in hour long lines. All transfers/tours were on time and perfect.
Michelle W. , Illinois

Hi Pat, FYI, the trip was great. Thank you for putting it all together. Loved PC. The American Trade hotel, the tour guide and limo pick ups were all flawless. The Red Frog beach was very cool and the surfing was great. Thanks for all your help.
Burt B. , Connecticut

You have the best staff in Panama! My granddaughter was ready to go home with our guide, Connie! Connie was a delight to be with and so knowledgeable. Our driver, Edmundo, went out of his way to help us. He went with us on our hike to the waterfalls, told us where to eat, and joined us. Such a nice man.

The butterfly garden was another big hit. The girls LOVED the Jungle Boat ride. Amelia caught her first fish. The other two girls went kayaking for the first time. The meal was really good as well.

We are glad we stayed the eight days in Amador. The hotel was clean and the people were very nice. Thank you for helping us make the most of our time. Joe and I enjoyed watching our grand girls the most! They all said it was much better than Disney. Mission accomplished!

Penny L. , Texas

Everything was FABULOUS! The entire trip was the BEST! We loved our stay in Panama, and everything was perfect. And Argentina was over the top. The hotels, guides, and personal care and attention were 10 stars! We were thrilled. Thank you again for such a memorable holiday.
Mary G. , Florida

Hi Lori,

Just wanted to tell you that our tour of Panama was the trip of a lifetime. It was wonderful revisiting the country of my birth as well as that of my three children. Our tour guide was so caring and very knowledgeable about everything to do with Panama. Your tours covered everything that I wanted to see in Panama and the former Canal Zone. It had been 45 years since I had been there, so it was very much changed. I am happy for the country of Panama.... The beach stay was a welcome chance to relax and enjoy the amenities of the Sheraton. I was able to tour my former home of Santa Clara, but couldn't recognize any of the homes there. We did get down to the beach and even ate lunch at a little restaurant there. Gamboa rainforest was just incredible. The highlight was the trip to the Embera Indian village.

The trip to Boquete was another wonderful experience. We had a spacious room with a fireplace which we used several times. We enjoyed the coffee tour, a tour of honey bees which also included beautiful gardens, honey tasting and shopping. We had a terrific guide. I did not participate in any mountain hiking, but preferred to rest, relax and enjoy the scenery. We were pleasantly surprised that everything we tried on the menu at the cafe was delicious. All meals were slow and relaxing.... Thanks again for such a wonderful tour.

Harriet W. , Florida

Hi Lori,

Now that life has returned to close to normal, I wanted to thank you and all the staff at Condor Tours for the trip to Panama that you organized for my sister and me.

You were so patient and understanding in booking the trip. The logistics, the pace, the excursions were all great. Glenda was a terrific tour guide, very knowledgeable and accommodating. Raul, our driver, was personable, outgoing and super in negotiating around construction closures, rainy weather and potholes. The best part of the trip for me was our time in the rain forest--beautiful scenery and exciting animal sightings.

It was a pleasure to work with you. I would recommend you and your company most highly and I look forward to booking another trip through you in future.

Peru

Hi Lori,

My daughter and I are home from South America and I thought I’d write to tell give you some feedback about our trip. First of all, we absolutely loved our hotel in the Sacred Valley, the Inka Terra. The setting was absolutely magnificent and the service was far beyond our highest expectations. Our room was wonderful, the food was wonderful, everything about the place was wonderful. Our next stop was Machu Picchu. When we got picked up by Condor Tours in Cusco we were 2 hours late as we missed our connecting flight in Lima due to delayed baggage. Although we were late our guide had a big smile on his face and was waiting there to greet us. We also enjoyed our stay in Cusco and were pleased with the hotel. We both really loved Peru and would consider returning at a later date. Thanks for everything, Myra

Myra K. , Florida

Lori, We had an absolutely fabulous trip to Cusco; the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu! The Condor staff, particularly our guide Lobo; were amazing; the highlight (apart from Machu Picchu itself) was the horseback riding - the kids loved it and it took us away from all the other tourists - and the Sol Y Luna, which was so beautiful and peaceful with great service; food and grounds!! Condor did an excellent job and we were very happy with our trip: Thank you for all your help and flexibility in planning this for our family. Andrea and Family
Andrea S. , Ontario

We very much enjoyed Peru! Condor Travel is fabulous. We were escorted everywhere with such care, and the guides were tremendous. The accommodations were the best quality. We learned so much and saw so much.

Thank you again for a memorable trip.

Rosemary S. , California

Everything was fantastic. Condor Travel treated us very well and were very helpful. All the guides were amazing and very informative. Also, white water rafting was a blast. The guides did a great job of making us feel safe while having a good time.

We had no problems with anything. The trip could not have gone any better than it did, and I look forward to using Condor Tours and Travel in the future.

Thank you for a great trip!

Rick G. , Louisiana

Hi Pat, We had a wonderful trip! Peru's scenery was beautiful, the Peruvians are gracious, polite and welcoming. Everything went well, especially the Condor services. The transfer gentlemen and the guides did a great job. We really enjoyed having the private transfers and guides, their professionalism and personalities were appreciated. Thank you for your work and time. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone I can. Thanks again.

Dear Lori,

A note of appreciation for a wonderful trip so well planned and executed by you and your team. Don and I had a fabulous time exploring Peru with the Millers and the Bakers.

Some notes:

Hotels: the variety of the hotels selected by you were a treat from the service, art work, environment, and amenities that each had to offer. I could have spent a week in each one… It was a treasure to walk in and be treated like VIPs due to the dedicated service. Exploring the grounds and questioning the art work and artifacts was an experience in itself. All adding to the culture with which we were engulfed.

Guides: the knowledge shared by each guide was so appreciated by all of us. There wasn’t a question we asked that was not answered. Each of them expressed humor as they guided us along the trail and made our experience even more enjoyable. They shared personal ideas and feelings and we did the same, bringing the two cultures together. Our favorites were: Elliot, who showed us around Cusco on the half day tour, Percy, who guided us through Machu Picchu in the fog and rain and made it all seem mystical. Both Percy and Elliot were mindful of the photo ops we might want to catch and took wonderful pictures of the six of us, couples, and individuals. They each knew the best spots to capture the moment, beauty and historical importance.

Transportation: The train was a great experience and a new way to see the countryside. We even spotted the cliff hanging hotel rooms that we had read about on the internet. Our buses were comfortable and the drivers were great maneuvering in and out of traffic and through the winding mountain roads. Each flight was easy and well scheduled by your office staff. All transportations was timely and we were notified in advance what to expect.

We will remember this trip for a very long time and are so pleased to have had you on our side planning each step of the way. Now if only you had a program to organize the many pictures we took!

Dolores C. , California

The trip was fabulous! The hotels, service, guides, everything was perfect.

.... there was a strike going on in the morning so instead of leaving at 10:00 am we left at 7:00 am, which was great! Our plane was 2/3 empty from those folks who hadn't been advised to leave early. Thanks to Condor we didn't have any problem!

We loved the floating islands as much as Machu Picchu! And Iguazu Falls was the BEST - you must go there sometime - you will love it!

Hi Lori!

Hope you are doing well and that business has been good for you. What a wonderful trip we all had and thanks so much for your attention to everything you planned for us.

I liked the dancing that they do (at the BOMA dinner) and all the drums are great for me…. that part was wonderful. We were unbelievably impressed with the staff at both Makutsi and Chobe and Victoria Falls. The folks were beyond very nice and beyond very helpful. They were exceptional. We could see that some were newer on the job than others, but nonetheless exceptional with wanting to help and service you. Wayne Maddams was soooooooooooo cool! Big kudos to him‼ Capetown was great.

Lori, I even tried warthog and impala‼ - very good and actually I couldn't really tell! Food was great and I didn't walk away from any meal hungry!

Thanks again for everything that you did to make our vacation remarkable and truly memorable.

WHAT A WONDERFUL AFRICAN SAFARI TRIP !!!!!!!

Hello To Lori,

(1) WE LOVED EVERYTHING: OUR BEST PLACE WAS CHOBE SAFARI LODGE. Those Animal Safaris were fabulous and so was staying at that Wonderful Beautiful Lodge !!!!

(2) WE LOVED THE VICTORIA FALLS HOTEL, so gorgeous there. We also loved going to the local "Boma Dinner".

(3) At the MAKUTSI SAFARI FARM… We really enjoyed Heika Weber. She is such a Super Lady. ALL THE WORKERS AT MAKUTSI WERE WONDERFUL & THE SAFARI GUIDES WERE ALL SO SMART ABOUT ALL THE ANIMALS WE SAW ON OUR SAFARI'S & SURROUNDINGS. We were so very very close to these magnificant animals in South Africa. IT WAS AWESOME, but also scary at the same time when these wonderful animals were 3-5 feet away from us !!!!! There were giraffes running and our Safari Guide stopped our jeep and we just watched them run in front of us... The food was also FABULOUS !!!

(4) Lastly we loved our stay in Cape Town at the PROTEA PRESIDENT HOTEL. We all loved Wayne Maddams, who was our Private Guide for 9 hours taking us all around on our Cape Point Tour on Wednesday HE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE & A SUPER GREAT GUIDE. We all loved the places you picked for us to see while in Cape Town. It was a beautiful day, sunny & 75. The next day they expected more rain...... So it was a super gorgeous day & a great ending for our trip!!!!

IT TRULY WAS A "TRIP OF A LIFETIME"!!!!!

LORI, THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR WORK ON OUR TRIP.

Phyllis K. , Illinois

We are currently on our flight back from Johannesburg, after a fabulous 1 and a half weeks in the great country of South Africa. My boys and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Makutsi is a gem of a resort; we had a great time there and did some very successful game-viewing each time we went out, including the Kruger Park. The food was very good as well.

The tour in Johannesburg went well... In Cape Town we booked some nice trips in addition to the one you booked for us. Everything went according to plan. Cape Town is impressive as a city.

Overall a highly enjoyable trip with no hitches. Thank you.

A loyal OSSN member in Los Gatos, Calif., shares this update from the OSSN Panama fam trip with Condor Tours and Travel (Oct. 4-14): "When I saw the Panama fam trip come across my travel desk from OSSN, I felt this would be a great opportunity to educate myself on a destination I was not familiar with, along with introducing myself to a new supplier, Condor Tours and Travel. I have been through the Panama Canal on a Holland America cruise, but felt that the country of Panama might offer other options as a land-based tour. Lori Snow, the owner of Condor Tours and Travel, Inc., organized the 10-day tour of this fascinating country. In Panama City, we experienced a full-day tour to visit the historic Panama Viejo Spanish ruins and the UNESCO area of Casco Antiguo, plus the Miraflores locks visitor center on the Panama Canal. The next day, we boarded a boat at Gamboa Pier and did a partial transit through three canal locks. Then, we traveled to the mountainous region of Anton, where the ladies loved the stop at a traditional craft market from the local people and we visited the El Chorro Macho Waterfall (where we walked through a rainforest across rope bridges!) The final night for the basic fam trip was at the Gamboa Rainforest resort - a unique Panamanian-feeling hotel, where we took a tram ride in the rainforest as well as a boat ride to see capuchin and howler monkeys (we even saw crocodiles!) For those of us who chose a post-fam extension, we flew to Boquete in the rainforest to stay at the Panamonte, a Small Luxury Resort of the World property. The highlight for me was a four-hour cooking class arranged just for our group. I returned home from Panama with many wonderful memories of a country that offers many diverse choices to enable visitors to enjoy the vacation of their dreams. But, the most valuable aspect of the trip was getting to know Lori Snow and the diversity of tours her company - Condor Tours and Travel - offers! Visit her web site at www.condortoursandtravel.com."

Thank you so much for your help with this one! My client's words to describe the vacation were "fabulous." She said everything went more than smoothly and she was very impressed with the tour operation in Peru--people were very accommodating and pleasant. Not a single complaint (which is very unusual in this day and time). Thanks again and I look forward to working with you in the future.
