All was great ”
An amazing trip. Far exceeded our expectations. Everything was so well organised and when there were small hitches they were dealt with speedily and efficiently . Our guide Alina was amazing, so relaxed but super efficient in a totally non threatening way. She held together a disparate group of people in a manner that I'm sure made everyone feel safe , valued, respected. She was also great fun. An exceptional young woman. The only small let down was the 2 nd hostel in Bolivia which I felt fell well under standards experienced on the rest of the tour. No real washing facilities other than when camping isn't really acceptable in this day and age. But a very minor point. Otherwise FANTASTIC..”
Our tour leader, Manny Salorio, was with us every step of the way. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic in going above and beyond his duties as a leader. He always shared his expertise and accompanied us on his suggested places for dinners, shopping and other activists. He made the trip very successful.
The trip was excillerating and full of adventure. We experienced things that we didn't know were possible. ”

The narrow sliver of a country that is Chile encompasses a surprising wealth of diversity when it comes to landscapes from the driest of deserts to the most perfect-looking of volcanoes and rugged mountains. Discover the best of Chile with our selection of top picks:
Comprised of dozens of thriving districts from the glitzy business areas to the more bohemian spots, Chile's capital of Santiago offers a diverse cultural landscape made even more appealing by the impressive natural backdrop of snowcapped mountains. It's also a city with its fair share of colonial architecture, interesting museums, vibrant markets and excellent restaurants.
Sat amidst beautiful mountains in Chile's northern altiplano, the village of San Pedro de Atacama is the perfect base for exploring the numerous natural beauties that decorate the region from the dazzling salt flats to the otherworldly Valley of the Moon and the hugely impressive Tatio Geysers. These incredible landscapes are made even more so when you consider that San Pedro has not seen a drop of water since records began.
The dramatic snow-capped mountains and brilliant blue waters of Torres del Paine National Park are just some of the reasons why this should be on every South American itinerary. The park sits in the southern region of the Andes mountains and is home to some of the most stunning hiking routes in the world as well as a diverse selection of wildlife and a number of natural wonders including waterfalls and glaciers.
Situated in the far south of Chile, Punta Arenas makes the perfect base for intrepid explorers looking to venture in and around the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. The city itself is an appealing place, the streets buzzing with activity, particularly in its giant tax-free shopping zone. Another must-see is the cemetery, often acclaimed as one of the most beautiful in the world.
Located on the coast in the far north of the country, the tranquil city of Arica enjoys sunshine year-round and is a popular resort with Chileans and their nearby Peruvian neighbours. It's here that you'll find the fascinating, if not rather creepy, Chinchorro mummies, which have been preserved for millennia and are now on display in the Archaeological Museum of San Miguel de Azapa.
