South America Tours

South America is a continent of tremendous contrast, with lush jungles and arid deserts, snow-capped peaks and sun-kissed beaches, glimmering salt flats and expansive glaciers. In addition to its stunning landscapes, South America also offers an abundance of wildlife, the fascinating local cultures of the indigenous peoples and lots of outdoor adventure too.

Trek the ancient Inca Trail and witness the sun rise over Machu Picchu at dawn, come face to face with the wildlife of the Amazon, marvel at the spectacular Iguazu Falls, celebrate carnival time in Rio, experience the hospitality of the native peoples of Lake Titicaca, enjoy a 4 wheel drive through the surreal landscape of the Uyuni salt lakes, go on a cruise of the wildlife-rich Galapagos Islands, or tango in Buenos Aires. It's going to be hard deciding with to do first!

Magnificant Machu Picchu

Think of South America and a vision of Machu Picchu will probably float into your mind. Machu Picchu, often called "The lost City of the Incas", is a stunning sight that is bound to amaze and astound just about anyone. Machu Picchu is considered to be a sacred place and it was recently voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. It really should be on everyone's travel bucket list, it's certainly on ours!
