Emma, Justa & Rolando are all simply wonderful. They welcomed our group of 7 art therapy students and 1 art therapist with open arms and provided the support we needed to accomplish the goals we had for ourselves, as well as those they had for us. They were incredibly helpful in orchestrating travel plans to and from the airport, and helped us to experience the culture of Bolivia by contacting tour companies for our excursions. I cannot say enough great things about Up Close!
