TRAVELLER STORIES FROM SOUTH AMERICA

Faye & Desi Killoran

“After months of research I finally contacted South America Tours to organise a once in a lifetime trip to Peru. Still undecided I liaised with Nicolas who produced itinerary after itinerary before I was finally satisfied, it was itinerary number 6. Nicolas promised me a trip that would leave everlasting memories but as time went by and I made my last payment I was still unsure. Nicolas assured me I would be treated like a Queen and true to his word that is just what happened. At every destination we were greeted with a large board clearly displaying our name our English speaking guide then became our special friend for the next couple of days.

The Incas and Manchu Picchu were always going to be the highlight of our trip and we were simply overwhelmed. Our guide, with Inca heritage was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer every question we asked. He also became our photographer and stopped constantly to take advantage of all the perfect spots. Machu Picchu was everything and more than we could ever have imagined. Cusco was an amazing city, The Sacred Valley was breathtaking, the floating islands of Uros were incredible, Lake Titicaca was stunning, and The Amazon was extraordinary. We are extremely grateful to Nico and South America Tours for showing us the highlights of Peru in such a personalised and memorable way and this is one bucket list we can happily tick off”

“Recently we travelled to South America. Holland America Line cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires. South America Tours organized our trip around this cruise at our request. This company was the most competitive & was most informative. I was impressed in the way that I could always speak to a ‘person’ immediately & if unavailable would always return a phone inquiry.

The company organized & respected my requests at all times. They organized all airfares to & from South America & Australia. We were met at each airport by a guide & driver & then taken to the hotels booked by the Company, plus a private guided tour of the places. This included Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls ( both sides), Quito, Lima ( twice) & our Amazon cruise was another highlight. The trip went off without a hitch & for this we were very thankful.

I have no hesitation in recommending South America Tours to anyone contemplating a trip to South America. These are the specialists that you like to deal with.They are experienced & familiar with the territory you wish to visit.”

“Thank you very much to SOUTH AMERICA TOURS (Sydney) for organising our tours in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and Chile! We had a wonderful time, enjoyed the adventures and was given excellent service by everyone, the drivers, tour guides & hotel staff. They all helped us to make our tours ran smoothly and with ease as per itineraries.

Everything in the itinerary happened as described. We had the most wonderful time in South America, in Perito Moreno Glaciers, Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca & Uyuni Salt Flats to name a few. Every place is unique, interesting and magnificent!”

“Thanks Nico for organising my trip of a lifetime to South America.

You ensured I got to all the top destinations on my list, everything was really well organised, all my queries were answered quickly. The guides, tours and accommodation organised by South America Tours were all really high quality. The highlight for me was the 7-days diving in the Galapagos. I would highly recommend anyone travelling to South America to consider booking with Nico at South America Tours.

Thanks again for all your hard work in making this trip such an amazing experience. Ed.”

Plus, we have exclusive deals with some partners meaning it will cost less than booking direct. So take advantage of our expertise. It doesn’t cost you a thing, and could even be cheaper.

What you get for free – that you wouldn’t get if you booked direct or with our competitors:

From staying at hotels, cruising excursions, exploring areas, living in the countries. We love Latin America and Antarctica and we try to get ourselves there as often as possible. Tap into our amazing knowledge to create a superb holiday.

To email or phone or visit us and ask for a specific independent opinion about a lodge, hotel, cruise, area, attraction, site or your holiday as a whole. We are not tied to any hotel or lodge or cruise or airline.

For your holiday and tweak it as many times as you like. We do all the leg work.

Hotels, transfers, flights, guides activities, dinner reservations, Tango tickets, helicopter flights, glacier trekking to name just a few. We can arrange it all.

Passed on from our overseas partners. As a Latin America and Antarctica specialist we have exclusive deals with a number of lodges, hotels and cruises and are often the first to hear of any special offers.

We know how it works on the ground. We know the guides that speak the best English, the vehicles that have air-con and a purring engine and the transfers that will get you where you need to be at the right time without crazy driving.

We love holidays and we like to get excited about them for months before we go. We find a beautiful looking itinerary sat on our coffee table helps the anticipation.

Just in case anything goes wrong. For example, frustratingly sometimes flights can be delayed. You will always be able to contact us or one of our representatives and we will re-arrange everything so it has as little impact on your holiday as possible.
