What people say
- “Now that I am back in the UK, I just wanted to thank you for all you did to arrange our trip. All your arrangements worked faultlessly and you gave us a good mix of glimpses into Argentina and Uruguay from swimming in the S Atlantic to trekking in the foothills of the Andes. Thank you for a very memorable holiday, and for the very handsome book.
- “I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are having...how did you manage it?!
- “We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
