Un mois passé en Bolivie dont quelques jours au Sud Lipez avec Terra Andina. Personnel de Terra Andina très disponible, professionnel, compétent. Circuit très bien pensé, chauffeur expérimenté, très à l'écoute, tourné vers la nature, toujours soucieux de nous faire plaisir. Nous prenions les repas de midi au milieu de nulle part et Bernardo avait à coeur de sortir une petite nappe pour faire une "jolie table" ! Paysages à couper le souffle, contrées improbables Voyage conforme au programme N'hésitez pas, n'hésitez plus ! Confiez votre projet! Read more

Yves & Dominique, Belgium

Nous voici de retour d'un séjour au Chili/Bolivie/Argentine. Un peu plus de 3 semaines de découvertes en découvertes. Guides, chauffeurs, hôtels, location de voiture... le tout organisé par terra group. Dès que nous avions reçu le roadbook, nous savions que tout était bien organisé. Nous n'avons pas été déçu, la ponctualité et la précision étaient de mise pour des vacances en Amérique du Sud. Merci aussi à ceux dont on ne connait pas les noms et qui ont contribué à ce voyage incroyable. Vivement les prochaines vacances. Read more
