Customer Feedback Gay Marriage | Customer Feedback | As many of you know, my last two weeks were in Buenos Aires, Argentina, planning my 6th. International Gay Wedding. Well yesterday I arrived back to New York, and today I have the honor and satisfaction to receive this email from this lovely couple commenting on their overall experience, wedding planning process, my services and more. I am beyond happy when my clients are happy, and this letters speaks for itself. Some photos below. Unfortunately, since we still live in a global society full of prejudice and discrimination, I have decided in this case to keep the identity of my clients and this lovely Groom+Groom couple private, reason why the blurry faces. My best wishes and wishes of happiness to the Grooms, was a pleasure to assist you through this process, and spending time with you guys as well. Looking forward for my next commission as an International Gay Wedding Planner. Spreading Equality LOVE around the world.

# 01. Iguazu Great Adventure ( Iguazu National Park, Iguazu Falls ) • With motor-boats, visitors are taken 6 km through the Canyon of the Iguazu River, until the falls, from these total, 2 km are river rapids. After enjoying the view from the calm side of San Martin Island we sail to the “Tres Mosqueteros” waterfall, at that point, the Brazilian and Argentinean sides and the Devil’s Throat can be clearly appreciated. After that, we sail along the shore of the island until we get to the most exciting part where we face the San Martin waterfall, a wonderful and unforgettable experience, for it’s the largest waterfall any motor-boat can approach safely. Get ready to get wet. !! Continue reading 05 Great Outdoor Tours ARGENTINA
Steven Cipolla Customer Feedback | from New York City, United States | We arrived in Punta del Este and all is well. We are like 40 minutes from the beach. And about 1.5 hour drive to Montevideo (so we’ll probably visit there one day). Very excited to be here. Going to the gay beach this afternoon. Wanted to tell you that everything has gone very smoothly. The agency in El Calafate was super nice, and the car company here in Punta was super as well. Thank you for organizing everything. It’s been a remarkable trip and memories. THANK YOU For the idea to visit Perito Moreno Glacier. It was AMAZING. We had a beautiful day of sunshine and the sight and experience was like another planet. The trek around the Fitz Roy in El Chalten was super nice. A little cloudy with sun on/off, but a really nice hike and we loved it. One of the highlights was eating those delicious empanadas at that place you mentioned. Slept most of the way back on the bus and just arriving back in El Calafete. The transfers etc have all gone very smooth. Thanks for the recommendations and arrangements. We love your peoples and country. Xo. 🙂 Steven & Denis. Steve and Denis used my services at CM by Carlos Melia while visiting the following destinations in Argentina: Buenos Aires , El Calafate, Perito Moreno Glacier, El Chalten, Fitz Roy National Park and Buenos Aires. In Uruguay: Punta del Este. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
