Superbly organized South American voyage- the best

Reviewed By CYS - Michigan | Traveled to South America
South American Tour of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile in January 2017

Our group of 20 persons included family and friends. Timpo Travel Agency planned the trip; booking the cruise and all the land tours that were taken in ports of call. The agency negotiated the best prices for the selected tours. Whenever possible, private tours were used for our group which allowed customization.
Of note, Dr. Emelia Timpo is a professional who has traveled extensively. She applies this experience in the leadership provided by the Timpo Agency: suggesting a variety options for cruises and tours; keeping the group informed of deadlines and managing the trip details. The agency was very responsive to the needs of the group.
The trip was fabulous.
We look forward to using the Timpo Agency for other trips.

Awesome group trip with Timpo Travel

Reviewed By Marilyn's Family and Friend's Tour - Florida | Traveled to South America
In past years, for our annual family trip we plan our itineraries and tours, but for this trip we decided to use an agent to assist us with coordinating the tours. We had extensive tours over a 23 day South American vacation, 95% of which were private. The tour guides which were chosen by our agent were all so knowledgeable and hospitable and really added to the wonderful experience of our vacation. In all I had a 5 star experience which I attributed to the excellent research and planning by Timpo Travel.
Emelia of Timpo Travel helped us in creating a majestic experience, incorporating our chosen interests and priorities hence customizing the trip to our needs. I would not hesitate in using her services for future travel and recommending her highly to all.

She gave valuable advise on accommodations as well as travel itenary

Reviewed By Ewurama - Accra | Traveled to
No doubt her travel experience influences the manner in which she assists her clients through the otherwise stressful planning of a holiday. She keeps you updated and reminds you of bookings , visa requirements you have to make ahead of the trip. She is never too busy to respond to any question no matter how insignificant. It does not matter whether she is at her base in NJ or she is travelling, she will always get back to you. We definitely will use her again on one the many trips she has so beautifully painted.
