"We would highly recommend using [Craft Travel Group] for your next unforgettable vacation."

We’ve been on two trips in the past 18 months organized by Julia and her team - one to Brazil and the other to South Africa. Both trips were planned to the smallest detail, with excellent guides and transportation, first class accommodation and the best sight-seeing experience. We would highly recommend using [Craft Travel Group] for your next unforgettable vacation.

"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.

"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

"WOW! The trip was amazing! Everything was spectacular."

Julia, WOW! The trip was amazing! Everything was spectacular. I cannot thank you enough. The flights went off without a hitch, the ground transportation was perfect. The hotel was excellent. We really got lucky with the switch from Posto 5 to Posto 2. Atlantic Ave was barricaded down at Posto 5 since that was the open water swimming venue. Being up at Posto 2 was perfect. My only regret is that I bought into the bad publicity about the conditions of Rio. Rio is incredible. The transportation around the city was easy. We were less than a block from the Metro and rode it most everywhere we went. We did the bike tour on Tuesday morning. Jan and Philip were great. I told them that you gave me their name. Carla, our guide for the Corcovado tour, was great. She even helped us get dinner reservations at a beachfront restaurant on Ipanema. On Wednesday we hiked up to Sugarloaf (half way). To top it all off, our daughter Leah won a Bronze and Gold medal! Thank you again for all your help. We could not have had such a great time without it.

"Loved the service, the bookings and the prices! The trip was no hassle"

After reading Lonely Planet Brazil, and knowing we would travel to Rio, Amazon, Sao Paulo, and more, we realized we needed insider information & booked with BRAZIL NUTS! Loved the service, the bookings and the prices! The trip was no hassle from start to finish and even when 4 out of 5 of our group traveled from different areas, and changed plans, Brazil Nuts accommodated us immediately! I cannot say enough, the entire trip was absolutely wonderful!!

"You were able to pull off a really great, intense, diverse, fun and interesting trip"

Hi Julia, Holli. Happy New Year!!! We returned a few hours ago from our trip to b\Brazil and I couldn’t wait to send you this note. We had a an amazing amazing family vacation!! Despite our last minute very specific trip requests, 5 of us to accommodate and the crazy holiday season - you were able to pull off a really great, intense, diverse, fun and interesting trip for all 5 of us. Brazil is amazing and already, we cannot wait to go back. The locations you picked were different and each had a unique focus - in Paraty we enjoyed the warm waters and colonial feel, in Rio the views and beaches, at the Iguassu Falls the boat ride into the falls, and in the Jungle swimming with the dolphins. The hotels and their locations were also spot on and had all the facilities our kids needed. Also, the transfers from place to place were seamless and the guides were super nice and helpful. The trip had a bit of everything we looked for - adventure, comfort, relaxation, kid-friendliness and adult focus as well. So, thank you for the hard work, again - I know it was not easy. Gil and I really appreciate your patience and diligent work. Best, Annie and family
