South America Tours & Trips

Discover the best of South America on our selection of group tours, expedition cruises & private trips to the continent of Machu Picchu & the Amazon

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.

Marvel at Machu Picchu - lost city of the Incas, come face to face with the wildlife of the Amazon, visit 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 which to do first!

South America Group Tours

From the southern tip of Chile to the northern jungles of Colombia, our South America tours take in the best of this diverse continent. Our Signature Peru & Bolivia trips stay in well-located 4-star hotels, are fully escorted, and have a maximum group size of just 16. And our Handpicked trips to other countries on the continent are packed with inclusions, and have a maximum group size of 20.

South America Private Tours

If group touring isn't your thing, then our selection of private trips in Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Brazil and elsewhere are a great option. Enjoy all the perks of a group tour, including guided sightseeing, transportation and accommodation, but travel with just your friends or family.

South America Expedition Cruises

For a bucket list adventure, why not take an expedition cruise to Antarctica, the wild and windswept seventh continent? Become one of just a handful of people to have set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula, explore the Falklands and visit South Georgia, home to more penguins than people. Travelling on a well equipped expedition ship with a trained crew, you'll be in the best hands for a memorable adventure.

Galapagos Islands Cruises

The Galapagos Islands are a unique destination, a series of volcanic islands where the flora and fauna has evolved in isolation for millions of years. From marine iguanas to giant tortoises, there are species here found nowhere on Earth. 97% of the Galapagos is protected for nature, and it's a dream destination for anyone interested in the natural world. Our island-hopping cruises take in the best of the archipelago, staying aboard a comfortable catamaran.
