Our initial enquiry to South America Tours was simply a list of desired destinations and duration. Nicolas promptly followed with a suggested tour itinerary and pricing which with very minor changes was arranged. Being accompanied by my grandson, I wanted to ensure that if any transfers or guides did not show up we had a backup point of contact. Paula provided this and many other detailed information. With 6 internal flights and an all-day bus transfer from Cusco to Puno everything, without any exceptions went to plan, no delays at any airport or hotel meeting points and the tours where conducted by professional, pleasant and well English speaking guides in both Peru and Ecuador. The 5 day boat tour of the Galapagos Islands was a most inspiring experience, well organised on the modern Grand Majestic yacht. Each day was fun filled with a varied range of birds, animals and sea life. Having travelled the world for many many years now we found South America Tours to be most professional and trouble free tour organisers.
My husband and I booked a tour with South America Tours. From the first contact with them I knew we were on a winner. I felt that I was listened to and my wish to change some of the recommended itinerary was done with no problems. All pickups by drivers and guides, whether at an airport or hotel were punctual. Guides were extremely helpful and often gave us tips on what to do in our spare time. Hotels were excellent as were the tours. In fact we could not fault anything about our trip and would definitely recommend South America Tours as a professional company who put your wishes and interests first.
We returned from our trip on Tues and just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the overall organisation. Everything went perfectly! Every transfer worked seamlessly, the guides were excellent (knowledgeable, professional, good English) and the transport comfortable. The hotels were of good standard in top locations. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the trip although in hindsight perhaps we tried to cover too much distance in the time available. Definitely coming home for a rest! Thank you all for your contributions to our holiday. We will have no hesitation in recommending South America Tours to anyone wanting to visit South America.
Hi Nico, Just wanted to contact you and extend our thanks for the wonderful tour that South America Tours organised for my group. Everything went like clockwork and every pick up, transfer and tour was exactly as promised. The guides were great and showed us the real side of the countries that we visited. We were a group of 4 couples and all were impressed with the level of service. I have attached a pic of our group at Machu Picchu. Once again, many thanks.
Thank you for organising our wonderful trip to South America. Everything was timed beautifully- all the guides were friendly and full of knowledge and enthusiasm about their area. All our flights / hotels / transfers worked well. Hotels were well situated and all our transfers were on time - no issues. We loved everywhere we saw and wouldn’t change any part of the trip - you were right about the rest day in Arequipa!
We arrived home last night weary but so happy with our South America experience. Thank you for organising everything, It all went like clockwork. We were met on time with friendly helpful guides Our organised tours were very informative and we had plenty of time to explore on our own. The hotels you chose were all very good. The flights were always on time. Of course we enjoyed everything we saw in South America and it actually exceeded our expectations. Thanks again
Adele was referred to South America Tours by friends. Adele and I wanted a customised tour with all air fares, boutique hotels, tours and transfers included. We wanted to visit Buenos Aires, Rio, Iguascu Falls , Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca, plus a visit into the jungle if it could be managed. Adele travelled for 24 days, before returning home, but Nico added a trip to Quito and the Galapagos Islands for me, making a total of 33 days. Nico designed the itinerary to include all the cities and places we wanted to visit, booked hotels, transfers and tours and all international and internal flights. Some tours were private; others we joined if they were available. All the transfer and tour guides were punctual, spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable about their cities/countries and went out of their way to make our tours enjoyable, especially if they were private tours. Nothing was too much trouble for the guides; giving us advice on transport, places to visit on our own, opening and closing times, entry fees, providing maps etc. All the hotels were excellent, very clean, the reception and dining room staff spoke English and were courteous and friendly, and the food (in our case mostly breakfast) was very good and varied. Most were within easy reach of the old city/tourist areas. Some tours included meals and the trips to the eco-lodge and the Galapagos were all inclusive. South America has been on my 'bucket list' for a while and it was absolutely wonderful. We have no hesitation in recommending Nico and South America Tours if you want a customised tour to suit your own needs and requirements.
Recently my wife and I travelled to South America organised by Nico and his team from South America Tours. We had an amazing month long trip and ticked off so many sights that were on our bucket list. Your company is to be congratulated, you customized our itinerary and nothing was too much trouble. We were always met at every airport with a sign showing our name and the English speaking guides were exceptional and were very well informed during the tours. They even went out of their way to ensure that when we were dropped back at airports, that we had a smooth transition through the airport and even assisting us with check-in. Your hotel choices were fabulous, very comfortable, usually central and with very pleasant staff. All of our plans went like clockwork. We had a wonderful trip and we now have memories that will last a life time. We would thoroughly recommend Nico and his team from South America Tours. Thank you
South American Tours put together a wonderful 22 day tour for 9 participants using a a very clever itinerary. Each of our tour guides in the different locations were very informative, helpful and all spoke excellent English. The 4 star boutique type hotels were terrific with very helpful staff. The organized meals and entertainment were also very enjoyable. Our transport arrangements were all well planned to get us around with a minimum of fuss in modern and comfortable coaches and all the drivers were excellent. Thank you Nico and your team for organizing such a great and memorable trip.
Cheryle and I just returned from a 24 day holiday through South America organized by Nico & Paula. Having private pick ups to and from airports, and private tours of most places was excellent. Tours are more flexible and personalized, with more knowledge of the areas gained by visitors. Visited Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Chile. Highlights were iguazu falls, Mashu Picchu and the Amazon jungle. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nico and the team to organize your holiday to South America
South America Tours did a wonderful job in organising a memorable trip that far exceeded our expectations. From the structuring of our itinerary, choice of accommodation and tour operators, South America Tours couldn’t be faulted. Thank You to Nico and his team.
Hi Nico, thank you for an amazing trip, was so well organised, photo is in Lima museum garden. Hotels were good and well situated. Most of guides enthusiasts on subjects. Seeing a jaguar a highlight, guides were as thrilled as group. Loved Peru
Just simply can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful holiday that we just been lucky enough to enjoy. Your organisation is to be congratulated, as our trip took nearly 5 weeks and we were always met at each airport with a sign showing our name, the guides were excellent in offering information and they went out of their way to ensure that when we were dropped back at airports, that we had a smooth transition thru the airport, waiting and helping us thru the drop off of bags and ticket collecting. Your hotel choices were fabulous, very comfortable, central and very pleasant staff. The fact that you thought of us in relation to altitude problems and the gradual ascending with hotels was great and the time we had in each stop over was perfect. Simply put, I had a marvellous holiday and thank you most sincerely for all you did to make it such a wonderful trip.
Our tour from Cuba to Peru was magnificently prepared by Nico and his team. The accommodation was exactly matched to us, the transfers and flights were seamless, reliable and extremely well organised and the mixture of private tours and groups tours was very well balanced. I can highly recommend booking through South American Tours and we look forward to exploring more of South America now.
Hi Nico I just waned to thank you and your team at South America Tours for organising such a fantastic holiday for us. Everything was wonderful and we had no problems. We visited 5 countries , the hotels were great, our transfers were always there waiting for us, our tours and guides that you booked for us were just amazing and everyday was an adventure. There was so many highlights . It was for me a dream holiday. The 3 of us all enjoyed it and I definitely will be coming back to you and recommending you to my friends. Thank you so much. Kind regards.
Nico and the team at South America Tours provided us with the most enjoyable and adventure filled holiday I have taken. Nothing was left to chance, every aspect was carefully coordinated and we really felt cared for and supported. As 2 women travelling alone this was very welcome in countries where we did not speak the languages. Hotels, tours and guides were top class. Beautiful hotels and passionate informative guides made everything just that little bit better. Nico and the team managed to squeeze every 'big ticket' request we asked for into a magical 17 days. Rio, Iguassu, Amazon, Lima, Machu Picchu, Cusco and Lake Titicaca! We got to see the lot! Our tour was customised to suit our wants as well as our budget. If you want to see South America there is only one travel agency to see and that's South America Tours.
Thank you to Nico and the team at South America Tours for arranging all aspects of our trip of a lifetime South America holiday. We wanted to cover a lot of ground all over the continent and you demonstrated deep local knowledge to help tailor our personalised amazing itinerary. It really was a memorable lifetime adventure. Our hotels, tours and transfers were great and we felt very well looked after throughout the entire trip.
We have just returned home after spending a wonderful month enjoying the highlights of South America. Nico and his professional team at South America Tours organised every detail for us, our hotels, guides, sightseeing tours, transfers, flights etc and we felt safe and very comfortable in all of the six countries we visited. Nothing was too much trouble getting our itinerary just right and meeting our budget. We would highly recommend this company and it is so reassuring to know they were there for us every step of the way.
Everything went according to plan. The transfers and tours were punctual and welcoming EVERY time!!!! The local itineraries they provided were easy to understand and accurate EVERY time!!!. It was always reassuring to be provided with and Emergency contact, which was never required. The guides were knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful. They tried to work out the kinds of things that might be of special interest to us and if there was an opportunity to do something a little different to the plan, they would offer it. I guess that’s the advantage of having individual or small group tours. The tour guides even accompanied us into the airports and assisted with check in in several places. We were pleased that the tours had a “social responsibility” focus and we were happy to make purchases and take part in activities which were of benefit to the local communities. The hotels were all good quality and offered good service. All the flights were on time and all the airline bookings went without a hitch. The booking and payment process with South America Tours was easy and Nico and his team provided prompt and helpful advice. We had an exciting, action packed, but very low stress holiday.
Recently my husband and I travelled to South America organised by South America Tours. Nico was our main contact and was always readily available and approachable and he had wonderful back-up staff. We had an excellent trip visiting Santiago, Easter Island, Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides, Quito and the Galapagos. All of our plans went like clockwork. Hotels, locations and transport were all thoughtfully and so well chosen. Pick-ups from airports and guides were exceptional. Our guides were very well informed and able to pass on their knowledge to make our trip so very interesting. We had a wonderful trip and would thoroughly recommend Nico of South America Tours.
You have done yourself proud. The whole trip went like clockwork and I would definitely recommend you to everybody if they are planning to do a tour of South America. Visited Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Ecuador / Buenos Aires, Rio, Iguassu Falls, Lima, Amazon, Sacred valley of the Incas, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, Quito and the Galapagos Islands
Twelve months ago my son Graham, partner John and myself were planning to travel to South America for the Christmas School holidays at the end of 2015. Our greatest wish was to see the Patagonia Area and the lakes district of San Carlos De Bariloche. When we went to book we found that most recognised tour operators did not have trips over the Christmas New Year Week. Graham works in a school and needed to include the school vacation. As a result I resorted to searching the internet and came up with a company called South American Tours. I rang the firm and talked to a lady named Paula Ramiraz, the firm’s Journey Designer. Paula assured me that she could design a trip to include all the places we wanted to visit. We had a very good idea of all the tourist attractions which we wanted to see from reading brochures. We wanted to spend at least two days in each location and to have good accommodation. Within two days Paula emailed me a quote and a planned itinerary commencing the 17th December and taking in all the places we wanted to visit. We accepted the quote immediately and the booking went ahead. I must admit that I became very worried about the fact that I had picked a company from the internet about which I knew nothing but everything was planned to perfection. We needed to depart Queensland on Saturday 28. November 2015. We had previously booked on a nineteen day excursion with another company before trying to arrange the Patagonia Section which extended over the Christmas New Year period.. South America Tours handled the bookings for our air fares which included eleven flights. At every stop over we were met on arrival and taken to our hotel. Each hotel was first class with wonderful views out across lakes or the ocean. Daily excursions were arranged in each of the six towns where we wanted to stay. All excursions were included but on the second day of our Patagonia trip the local guide stated that as we did not have vouchers we had to pay for a section. When we arrived at the hotel that afternoon I emailed Paula and informed her of the problem and would you believe this I had hardly pressed send and the phone rang in our hotel room. Paula was on the line and assured us that all the excursions were included and that she would speak to the guide and correct the matter immediately. That afternoon the guide turned up at the hotel and reimbursed us. We never had another problem. We travel frequently and we have never experienced such a quick response. We had a wonderful trip. We saw snow covered mountains, beautiful waterfalls and lakes and travelled on trains, buses and boats. We even had a white Christmas in the Paine National Park. It snowed heavily from 3.pm to 10pm. on Christmas Day in the middle of summer. We recommend Paula and Nicolas from South American Tours to anyone wishing to travel to South America.
What an amazing experience travelling through South America on a customised tour filled with exciting adventures everyday. I can’t recommend Nicolas and his team highly enough for the seamless journey and attention to detail for our trip. We are already looking forward to planning our next holiday to continue exploring South America and wouldn’t hesitate to use the services of South America Tours again.
An Amazing South America Experience We normally book our tours through the major and well-known travel agencies. I stumbled upon Nico Samuel and South American Tours while surfiing the internet for a tour of South America. At first, we had reservations about this company as it was relatively unknown. However, once we started talking to Nico about our plans all of our concerns were soon allayed. We found Nico Samuel to be honest, flexible and very accommodating, always listening to our requests and making amendments to our itinerary to suit our individual needs. His input and guidance all along the way is highly appreciated. He was always prompt in responding to our telephone calls, text messages and emails. He is very professional, knowledgeable and thoroughly organised. He handled the entire tour arrangements for Argentina, Brazil and Peru - flights, hotel bookings, itinerary and transfers. His selection of hotels ( 4 stars as requested by us) was excellent. Transfers were punctual and conducted in nearly-new, clean vehicles.The guides were English-speaking and experts in their field. His tours were value for money. Nico has given us the confidence to travel with him again. We highly recommend Nico Samuel and South American Tours to anyone wanting to travel to South America.
Well we have just come back from an amazing trip to South America and I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising it for us. The trip from Lima to Machu Picchu and then on to Lake Titicaca and La Paz was truly wonderful and we will have memories that last a life time. I am so glad we got you to organise everything for us because there is no way we could have had the same quality experience if we tried to do it by ourselves. It was such a relief to be met at every destination by a representative who had everything under control. We know no Spanish so having local guides who spoke English was essential, especially as we were always on the go. At every airport, at every hotel, and on every tour we were met with friendly knowledgeable staff which made our trip what it was - unforgettable. We did and saw a lot in these 10 days and we know that detailed planning beforehand makes all the difference, so again thanks for a job well done.
The tour organized by Nico of South America tours for myself and three companions was amazing. We listed places we wanted to see and our time frame and Nico took over from there. The experiences he included in our itinerary were varied and thoroughly enjoyable. His organization of all of our transfers enhanced our tour. The people who met us ensured we arrived at our accommodation, understood the currency and customs of the place we were visiting and then assisted us in all aspects of the processes for our ongoing flight. Our tour was stress free as depicted my one of the seals we encountered. Thank you Nico I will definitely recommend you to my friends and others who plan to visit this amazing continent.
Stress free Adventure Holiday" I found South America Tours on the internet and liked the sound of their tours and that you could personalise and do private tours. I put in an enquiry and received a call from Nicholas, the next day. I told him basically what my husband and I wanted and he went from there. He called me nearly every day while he was planning the tour with suggestions, checking what we liked etc. It didn’t take long and we had a 5 week private tour planned. It was that easy, and it continued to be that easy. The holiday was excellent, all the tours and hotels were just what we wanted. I have never been on such a stress free holiday/tour before. We did not have one hiccup in 5 weeks. We saw and did many amazing things and didn’t have to worry about one thing. I could not have done this myself and why try when South America Tours does it so well! Thank you Nicholas and South America Tours.
We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Nico & Paula of South Americas Tour for organising our tours/air travel to South America in April/May 2017. It was a memorable holidays for all of us, our group of 24 members! We cannot emphasised how much patience Nico & Paula have with us changing our itineraries (over 11 times!) and air travels with the places we wanted to visit and the knowledge & experiences of South America. With Nico’s knowledge of South America, he was able to customise/guide us where to visit first thus leaving Peru last so we can get acclimatised to the high altitudes. The choices of hotels were excellent and the transportation & tours that Nico have in his network are amazing.
Our trip to South America in Sept/October which included Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil and Argentina was fantastic. Highlights included Galapagos, Machu Pichu, Iguazu Falls, Rio and Buenos Aires. Our trip was organised by South America Tours who produced a plan that covered all we wanted to see in the time we had. Flights, rail, boats and bus trips were all included. Transfers and tours were excellent and we would definitely recommend using them to plan a trip.
"I just wanted to say "thank you" for organizing for us the most incredible, trip of a life time to South America. We've have seen so much - Rio de Janeiro - impressive, Iguassu Falls - stunning, Machu Picchu- magical, Bolivia - trip on the train - unforgettable, Chile - Patagonia - breathtaking, and Buenos Aires- glamorous - to name just a few. Everything was just perfect: the guides knowledgable and very professional, all activities were perfectly organized, and even the weather was just right. Unforgettable, awesome, spectacular - one of the best trips ever-thank you!!!!"
I cannot thank Nico and the rest of the team at South America Tours enough. As a travel agent I deal with many wholesalers and tour providers on a day to day basis and I truly feel I have found the diamond in the rough here with Nico! He took care of my clients start to finish with an amazing and personalized independent tour though Patagonia when everyone else told me NO ! That it wasn't possible to do what they wanted or that it was simply too hard. Nothing I asked was ever too difficult or too much trouble for him, he went above and beyond to deliver my customers a once in a lifetime, truly spectacular holiday that they will remember for ever and will struggle to top. I hope that I too can travel on one of Nico's itineraries and experience all that South America Tours can offer.
Visiting so many different sites was complicated, but the tour was planned perfectly. At each juncture we were met by staff who took us to our hotel or transport. Private excursions were arranged in most cases or we would join small groups for sight seeing. Everything worked perfectly. We stayed at lovely boutique hotels and learned a great deal about the countries and cultures we visited. Highlights included a Tango Show and dinner in Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and much more. What a great vacation!! Thanks, Nicholas
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.
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. . . .
We had an amazing holiday in South America, travelling throughout Chile, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay and Brazil. Thanks to Nicolas and Paula at South America Tours our holiday experience was a dream. Nicolas and Paula ensured that our itinerary was full of activities and sightseeing, with wonderful accommodation, tour guides, transfers from door to door and all travel to, from and within the countries was arranged. We were really looked after, with no hassle or worries we were able to really enjoy our holiday. Thanks so much Nicolas and Paula you were incredible.
A short note to thank you from our hearts for the most wonderful, relaxing but exciting holiday your company organised for me and Fran in South America. Latam Airlines were efficient and friendly. Everyone looked after us as if we were VIPs. Every place we visited had that wow factor especially Foz de Iguasso and the splendid Machu Picchu. Rio De Janerio was a beautiful city. Buenos Aires was interesting as were the glorious cathedrals in Lima and Cusco. The food was appetising and the hotels comfortable. Lake Titicaca was beautiful and we were lucky to have great weather in all locations. Thank you again and we would not hesitate to recommend South America Tours to our friends and family.
South America tours made our whole trip seamless and worry-free. They looked after us every step of the way, even while we were travelling, and were quick to respond to any question or concern we had. They planned our trip catering for our every need (making our plans all work around a wedding) and far exceeded our expectations of customer service. Everyone we dealt with was able to answer every question we had and even offer further advice for all the areas we travelled. All our transfers and tours were with locals so we got personalised service from knowledgable and amazingly lovely people every day!
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.
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!
We (3 couples) have just returned from our 32 day South America highlights holiday and we would like to say a big THANK-YOU to Nico and Paula for arranging such an amazing trip. Before we went we received all the necessary background information about all 6 countries we were to visit which was very helpful. The majority of the hotels were boutique-style with very friendly staff, great rooms and excellent breakfasts. Even when we had an early morning departure for the airport, before breakfast was served, they catered for us. Everything worked like clockwork - transfers, comfort of vehicles, itinerary, friendly informative guides and the extras, such as lunches at a winery in Chile and Sun Island on Lake Titicaca were very well organised and enjoyable. We weren't looking forward to our 10 hour bus ride from Cuzco to Lake Titicaca but the coach was so luxurious and comfortable we didn't want to get off!!! The holiday was full of highlights but the ones that stand out most would be The Iguassu Falls which seeing both Argentina and Brazilian sides were beyond magnificent and the incredible Machu Picchu of course. We would just like to give one word of caution if visiting The Galapagos Islands. We did not realise that the islands are so far apart and we experienced some very lively night voyages (6-8 hours of "Rocking and Rolling"!!!). Having said that it was wonderful to be able to be so close to the wildlife, with one of our members who suffers from Bird Phobia being able to visit each island and not feel threatened. The snorkelling was excellent and is recommended.
Hi Nico and Paula, Just arrived back from our South America trip and had to send a note to let you know that it was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much. The hotels, the tours, the guides and the itinerary were simply excellent and exceeded our expectations. The stand out for me was the farm lunch at The Sacred Valley (Hacienda Sarapampa). We felt so lucky to visit the home of a local and hear how they live, plus the food and the experience were exceptional. The lunch was limited just to our family and all ingredients were fresh from the farm. They put on a traditional Peruvian dance show between a horse and a Peruvian lady which was brilliant. The horse literally danced! Our guide in the Sacred Valley, Ernesto, was particularly outstanding. The Galapagos tour was also amazing. The islands and the environment of course were beautiful, but the team on the Seaman Journey made it very special. I could go on for hours about all the wonderful experiences! It was a trip of a lifetime made outstanding by your expertise in selecting the best tours and operators for us. Thank you. I will be recommending you guys if I hear of anyone planning a South American tour. All the very best Sam and family.
Nico was amazing from the first contact my group of friends and i had to the moment our plane touched down when we got home, it was simply exquisite. The choices of hotels, the locations we went to and the transportation could not be better. For those who thought tours would be strictly timed and with no actual freedom you couldn't be more wrong without having experience this tour company. I heard about Nico online and it was by far the right decision i made choosing to have my holiday with this company. 5 stars simply does it no justice, i would give 6 no.. 10 if they allowed me Keep up the amazing work. You will need me for the next trip shortly.
WOW! South America Tours - what a fantastic operator. Being mature, independant travellers, my clients did not want to be part of a "pre-set tour" travelling through South America. However, it was important to set an itinerary where my clients could be looked after (and feel safe) from start to finish using local guides and operators. I was so impressed with the time and effort that Nicolas from South America Tours invested to refine a busy 5 week personalised itinerary (Argentina, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia) for my clients. The entire trip ran seamlessly. The clients were extremely happy, had some very unique experiences and felt comfortable and safe throughout the journey using the services provided by South America Tours. Nicolas was able to create an itinerary that worked out much better value for money than other tour operators (who cater for up to 20+ pax). I would highly recommend using South America Tours for all South America itineraries. Thanks Nicolas and the team from South America Tours!
I just wanted to thank you for organising such an amazing trip for us to South America. Not only were the tours that you organised exciting and fun, the tour guides were all friendly, knowledgeable and made our visits to each country unforgettable. My family were particularly impressed with how smoothly all airport transfers ran between each destination and the great service and warm welcomes we all received at every stop. Additionally, the hotels you arranged for us were all spectacular and at very convenient locations. We had no issues throughout our holiday, which only highlights what an amazing job you did here. We definitely appreciated your hard efforts in organising this South American tour for our group of 13 people. It is general consensus amongst the group that this holiday was one of the best we've all been on thus far. We will definitely recommend South America Tours to our friends and family.
We had the trip of a lifetime. It was absolutely fantastic. The itinerary South America Tours had planned for us went like clockwork. Every organised transfer was ready and waiting for us at each of our destinations. The tours and guides you organised were great and on time every time. We were also very happy with all the hotels you had booked for us. It's impossible to pick our favourite part of the trip because it was all amazing and unique in its own way. From the Atacama Desert, the Andes Lakes Crossing, The Glaciers National Park, Torres Del Paine National Park, the Patagonia Cruise and Ushuaia. A big thankyou to Nico and the team at South America Tours. We wouldn't hesitate to use your company again or to recommend your services.
