"We are thrilled with the added value that Craft Travel was able to provide"

We just returned from a fabulous 13 day trip to Brazil. We are thrilled with the added value that Craft Travel was able to provide. We are still marveling at how they put us in the right places at the best times. There are just so many details to work out and they thought of everything.

"I give Craft Travel my highest recommendation"

I had the pleasure of working with Julia and Holli at Craft Travel to plan my two week South America trip to Argentina and Brazil. From my first chat with Julia, I was left feeling very excited. I already knew what I wanted as in places to go but Julia offered recommendations to enhance the experience in which it did. From Buenos Aires, Rio, Salvador de Bahia, and Trancoso, everything was amazing. The hotels selected were in prime locations in every destination and the guides were nothing but amazing. I give Craft Travel my highest recommendation and I will be using them again for my trip to Peru.

"I would recommend Craft Travel any time to anyone"

"I would recommend Craft Travel any time to anyone"

What an amazing experience. I have used Craft Travel and Julia Carter for the last 15 years, first as Brazil nuts and now as Craft Travel and they have been nothing but excellent. Just got back from an incredible trip to Peru - the highlight being the cruise on the Amazon. Having done a river boat cruise before, we were not expecting the level of service and attention to detail that we got on Delfin Cruises. Julia knows her clients and works towards giving them the experience of their lives. Our hotels were fabulous, guides great and every person at the right place at the right time to make our trip smooth and easy. Julia is accessible before, during and after your trip, and keeps tabs on all the arrangements as you are on your trip. I would recommend Craft Travel and Julia Carter any time to anyone.

A review from Google about Craft Travel.

"The planning was meticulous and the execution flawless"

Recently returned from a month’s trip to Brazil arranged by Craft Travel. From the start they REALLY listened to what I wanted to do, and fully understood my goals. We then worked closely together to achieve my goals. Since the trip was a month, and I wanted to experience as many different aspects of Brazil as possible, that was challenging. The planning was meticulous, and the execution flawless, resulting in a trip of a lifetime.

"Very impressed with the hotel and private guides that Craft travel set up for us"

Just arrived back from a 3 week trip to Chile, Argentina & Brazil, all coordinated and booked through Craft Travel (a/k//a Brazil Nuts) in Naples Florida. I spoke there Julia Carter, an expert in travel in these countries who arranged everything. I am a world traveler, been to all continents except Antarctica and i was very impressed with the hotel and private guides that Craft travel set up for us. I also recommend travel to my clients and I would have no hesitation to tell them about Craft Travel when traveling throughout South America. Ms. carter listened to my requests prior to the trip and was able to fulfill all my inquires , even to the exact times that i wanted tour guides to exact times of flying departures. I even had fought her on some of the Chilean vineyard destinations and she was so right to tell me to go there and enjoy myself. I found Craft travel at the NY Times travel show in NYC and live almost 1500 miles from Craft but that was no impediment to them planning a wonderful trip for me. I know I sound redundant but when a travel agency does a great job, i feel that i should let other travelers know. PS- I did make numerous recommendations on South American hotels and restaurants that i visited on the trip on Trip Advisor, if you want to check them out

"All 6 of us were delighted with services of Craft Travel"

Our trip to Brazil was fabulous! We had a varied trip - all arranged by Craft Travel. Starting with Juma Lodge in the Amazon, short trips to Manaus and Brasilia, Carnival in both Salvador and charming Paraty and ending with the Winners Parade in the Sambadrome in Rio. Our guides were all superb and we learned a great deal from them. Hotels were all excellent- from modern to charming. One of our favorite experiences in Rio was a walking food tour through markets and restaurants, eating local foods we had not known. All 6 of us were delighted with services of Craft Travel.

"I was amazed how quickly Julia got to know us and what we wanted out of our holidays"

"I was amazed how quickly Julia got to know us and what we wanted out of our holidays"

The Craft team (Julia and Holli) have arranged 2 South American adventures for my wife and I over the past 2 years. Both trips have been unique with memories that will last a lifetime. I was given Julia’s name by a friend who’s trip she organized a few years ago. I was amazed after a few emails and a few phone calls, how quickly Julia got to know us and what we wanted out of our holidays. After a few modifications of the initial itinerary, we boarded the plane, not fully knowing what to expect. Every day was amazing - from mountain trekking to glaciers, city bike tours, train rides, deserts, ancient ruins, amazon jungle, birds galore, swimming with sea lions, and without a doubt, the best sunsets EVER. Luxurious hotels, spectacular haciendas, comfortable yurts, well organized transfers and of course great food and wine helped to top it all off

"Best family trip ever and your recommendations were totally on target"

Hi Julia, Happy New Year!!! Thank you for making our trip exceptional! It was truly a remarkable trip and Chile has now become one of our favorite places if not favorite! Amazing. The sheer variety of landscapes and the amazing generosity and kindness of the people is just unbeatable! And the fact that we were able to do a variety of activities from river floating to horseback riding, biking, trekking etc...that you “rightsized” for my son just made it the perfect trip. Best family trip ever! Thank you so much for that. And your recommendations were totally on target :)
