  • Why we love South America & Central America

    • Latin America does nature on an unashamedly grand scale - from some of the world's best trekking in Patagonia's national parks to exploring Costa Rican cloud-forests; venturing upriver in Ecuador's Amazon to standing in awe of iconic Iguazu Falls
    • A great experience is to go to a milonga in Buenos Aires. These local tango shows are often in the back of a small restaurant and can be hard to find, so inside knowledge is the key!
    • Twitchers will love the Galapagos, and the nesting grounds of the waved albatross on Espanola Island. The birds nest on a cliff, and you can stand on the edge of it and watch these amazing creatures with a huge wingspan, flying right towards you
    • Around beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, in Chichicastenango, you’ll see priests performing ancient Mayan religious rituals on the steps of the relatively new (only four centuries old!) Catholic church
    • See the native Aymara women in the street markets of La Paz with their brightly coloured dresses offset by a few-sizes-too-small bowler hat

    What an outstanding tour. We had a group of 8 people, the youngest was 30 and the oldest 73, but we all had a ball. The motels were comfortable 4 star, the guide was very well organised, patient and accommodating, and spoke excellent English.

    Brilliant in every respect. The animals are full of life and are not bothered by us gawking at them. If you like nature above the sea and below then this is the trip for you! The chef was 5star too.

    Peruvian Wonders

    I feel that this tour gave me a good idea about Peru's history, culture & geography. While some of the distances travelled were a bit oppressive (understandable given the size of the country) it certainly explained regional differences.
