Travel Agent Reviews

My clients recently embarked on a remarkable journey through South America, and I can confidently say it was the trip of a lifetime for them. Ideal South America (Max and Isabel) surpassed all expectations in curating a seamless and unforgettable experience, handling every aspect of the trip with utmost professionalism.  From the multiple flights to transfers, trains, cruises, and private tours, Ideal South America ensured every detail was meticulously arranged. This allowed my clients to relax and fully immerse themselves in the adventure, without worrying about the logistics. The level of attention to detail was remarkable.  Throughout the entire journey, my clients felt incredibly well-prepared, safe, and informed about each step of the way. Ideal South America’s comprehensive pre-trip information and support gave them peace of mind, knowing exactly what to expect at every destination. One aspect that stood out was the exceptional quality of the guides. At every stop, my clients were greeted by knowledgeable and passionate guides who made them feel welcome and well taken care of. The guides’ expertise and enthusiasm for sharing the beauty and culture of South America added a special touch to each excursion.  I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to have a supplier partner like Ideal South America. Their professionalism, expertise, and meticulous planning allowed me to offer my clients a seamless and stress-free journey. Knowing my clients were in good hands from start to finish provided tremendous peace of mind.  Ideal South America has proven to be an invaluable partner in creating unforgettable travel experiences for my clients. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to any travel advisor seeking exceptional adventures in South America for their clients. They consistently go above and beyond to exceed expectations to make dreams come true.

Hi Donovan and Max.  Thanks for everything you’ve done for all of our travelers.  I just sent you another referral.  She is a TA, not even with my company, who I “ know” on another Travel board.  Take care of her as you did for us!

I am happy to provide a reference for Donovan Hervig and his company, Ideal South America. He was recommended to me by an agent colleague about a year ago when I had run into problems with another tour operator and needed to find someone good to work with right away. I found him very conscientious, very knowledgeable, really attentive to detail and highly ethical. He listened carefully to what I had planned for my clients (Lima, Cuzco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu) and made several excellent recommendations based on his own experience that I know made their special vacation even better than they’d been dreaming about. We weren’t sure about one of the hotels in Lima, and Donovan checked it out for us in person during a visit there before we booked the clients’ stay. My clients were thrilled with their trip and have already sent new business my way as a result of their positive experience. They certainly earned my 5-star endorsement!

Our Peru trip was absolutely fantastic.  Our day trip to Pucusana was amazing – a highlight of the trip for us and the guide and his driver were fantastic.  I would highly recommend the trip to anyone going there.  Thank you Donovan and Ideal South America for arranging such a wonderful trip!

Maya NorthenOwner, Chimera Travel New Jersey/Philadelphia, USA

Bob and George had such an amazing trip to Argentina! They were extremely happy with everything. They were going to give you a call, just to tell you how wonderful everything was. Among many other things, they loved the Tango Dance show and dinner … and the tour guides were really good too! I sincerely appreciate all of your work in making this a trip of a lifetime for them. I just received a request for some pre-cruise services in Buenos Aires, so I look forward to working with Donovan and Ideal South America again soon!
