Sebastian in Lima and Jose in Cusco we’re both amazing, they had a wealth of knowledge and a lovely disposition.”
All was great ”
Sebastian was very knowledgable and enthusiastic, but it would have been nice to have a bit of time on our own - particularly to have a meal together on our own in the Amazon. Jose was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Cusco and the Incas. All parts of the tour were very well organised and we felt we were in safe hands and had no problems at all.”
South America is a continent of tremendous contrast when it comes to natural beauty from the vivid blue expanse of Lake Titicaca in Peru to the dazzling salt flats of Bolivia, the mighty volcanoes of Ecuador to the parched deserts of Chile, the stunning scenery of Argentina's Patagonia to the thundering cascades of Iguazu Falls in Brazil - discover this and much more with our range of tours to South America.
