Craig N. Customer Feedback

Craig N. Customer Feedback • ( Washington, United States ) Hi Carlos – I want to thank you for helping organize an amazing trip to Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, and Uruguay.! Everything was perfect – people were on time, very friendly, accommodating, and helpful…everything was just as it should be. I also want to say the Casa de Limoneros as one of the highlights of the trip, particularly since it was on Thanksgiving. The property was so picturesque – we went for bike rides, runs, and enjoyed the pool. Sergio and Mario was quite a friendly pair too. I can’t say enough about the ladies at the front desk of the Design CE Hotel – they were so nice, friendly and helpful…so glad we met them and you recommended the hotel. Craig

Craig and his friend Tom visited Buenos Aires staying at Design CE Hotel and Iguazu Falls staying at Saint George Hotel and Colonia del Sacramento staying at La Casa de los LimonerosCM
