“My holiday in a nutshell, memorable, wonderfully so!”
- Australia Sep 2012 2 Helpful Votes

I loved the tour of South America. My only issue was with all the flights and waiting around airports, although there is no way around this as South America is a big country. I loved the hotels and thought they were well placed in each city. Our guides were excellent as well. In Puerto Varas I would have spent the morning of our departure in Puerto Varas as its a really lovely town and the hotel was beautiful, and we could have had a leisurely start & quick trip to the downtown shops and more

“One of the best travel tours I have ever taken”
- Australia Oct 2011 2 Helpful Votes

This tour was one of the best travel tours I have ever taken. It was a great adventure. Hotels, the tour director, optional tours were all excellent. The group of tourists - a mixture of Americans, Japanese, Philippinos, Canadians and Australians were a great group to be with - very few complaints among the group. The sights were truly amazing - I did not realise that South America had so much to offer. The Amazon River, Iguassu Falls, Patagonia, Bariloche, Porta Varas, Rio, Buenos Aires, more
