1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Entering Paraguay from Brazil after having visited Iguazu some days before seems not the best move to visit a country, the Jesuit Mission Ruins however have been a formidable discovery in both Paraguay and Argentine and the Parana River is more important by size at Bella Vista, when one is nearing Encarnacion, than at Iguazu. But all single day, of the 10 day Tour in Paraguay spent with the driver of the local agency, offered something exciting and unexpected.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Paraguay is not one of the most visited countries for tourism, therefore, my tip is clearly 1-to contact a fiable tour agency, 2-to discuss the itinerary you have in mind with them, 3-to invest enough time for the tour itinerary and if possible, 4- to go on a private - car with driver - tour with them, and if necessary, requesting an english speaking guide.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, indeed a holiday on a private car with driver basis benefits more local people than big groups travelling in huge busses, people who have less time to spend and therefore move full speed, without all those interesting stops for sightseeing, cultural as well as daily life, contact with people, for photos or refreshments. I have the feeling that people travelling on a private basis are best prepared for the tour itinerary and take better care as for the environment

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I am unfortunately not reborn, however the Paraguay Tour has been one of the most interesting in years. At the beginning it was not so easy to find an appropriate local agency, finally I am very happy with the choice and I can only recommend responsibletravel.com to my family, friends and all other people who are eager to visit Paraguay, the Tour has been a full success from Asuncion to Encarnacion and the visit of the Jesuit Missions a special highlight.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Camping in Mt Fitz Roy National Park; it was so beautiful and the walking was excellent. We had some really good mountain guides; lots of fun.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure they have all the right equipment including a light weight towel and rain jacket because some parts of the trip involved having to walk with your own stuff. Also the microbrewery at Chalten was extremely good! Two very good beers on tap.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. Tourism is so important to the economy in Patagonia. I was also very impressed with how clean all the national parks were that we visited.
