About Us

We first travelled to South America in 1979 and since then , have returned there on a annual basis to keep up to date with developments through the continent. Travel with us to South America and you will be travelling with over 25 years of personal experience creating memorable tours.

We have experienced all styles of travel from backpacking & trekking to deluxe cruises and exquisite lodges & hotels. On our visits to the continent, we research and assess hotels, lodges, transport, services & guides.

Choose from our selection of package tours which have been designed with careful attention to detail. These can be modified to cater for your personal interests and comfort.

Our selected hotels reflect the best quality available in each category and are based on our personal recommendations.

Our range of Escorted Tours and Active Adventures offer a unique selection of programmes and the opportunity to travel as part of a group.

 South America is a Continent of Contrasts that we are passionate about and love to share our experiences of places to see, and places to stay with you.

We know and love the Continent and can provide for you a personalised travel experience that will exceed your expectations.

Buen Viaje!
