“Some people say you need a holiday after travelling overseas because it is so stressful and tiring. We came home from our trip feeling excited, refreshed and energized. Your service was excellent, not missing a beat. We felt confident that we would be picked up, looked after and made comfortable in every new location. Your guides were excellent, providing informative tours, going out of their way to anticipate our needs and fulfil any requests we had. We were very impressed with the level of co-operation shown between driver, man guide and local guide to work together to get through difficult circumstances.We enjoyed being taken to local market to enjoy traditional foods and felt very much immersed in the culture, rather than the tourist view only.The balance between organized free time was perfect, allowing us ample time to explore, shop and absorb the culture. Providing quality water at the hotels was excellent and saved us any worry of quality health.We look forward to our next trip with you”

“Having just arrived back from our South America trip, we thought we drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our journey. Everything was as we expected and more!! The itenery itself was outstanding, the scenery and sites ... well photos just don't do it justice! The hotels we stayed in where better than we expected ... the tour guides where fantastic and very knowledgable. The tours and all the pick ups and transfers where spot on. There is now doubt in our mind to use World Expeditions again soon, it is now just a matter of finding the time (and of course a little money). Antarctica looks great!!!”

South America - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

South America is a vibrant continent, whose backbone is the Andes running from north to south with the Amazon river snaking through its northern part. High and low lands combine to create a continent of extremes. The highest waterfall (Angel Falls in Venezuela), the most voluminous river and the largest rainforest (the Amazon rainforest), the longest mountain range (the Andes), the driest place in the world (Atacama Desert in Chile), and even the best carnivals in the world - South America does nothing by halves. Visit South America to see some of the most interesting landscapes in the world, to sample the deliciously varied cuisines and the beautiful and friendly locals. Get ready to live life to the full when you are on a holiday to South America.

Travel Highlights

  • Head to the Peruvian Andes and climb the Inca trail on your way to the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu. It’s easily the most famous archaeological site in South America, and while there are some great alternatives, the Inca Trail is iconic.
  • See the blinding white and blue of Salar de Uyuni, the Bolivian salt flats. An almost dreamlike experience, the salt flats stretch for as far as the eye can see, with the sparkling white salt and cerulean blue sky being completely void of any distractions.
  • Stand in the divine presence of Angel Falls, Venezuela. Almost one kilometer high, the waterfall cascades from a tepui - a table top mountain, called Auyantepui - and is approximately 16 times taller than Niagara Falls.
  • Canoe down the legendary Amazon river, the life source of our planet, and appreciate the interconnectivity of Earth and it’s inhabitants.
  • Get lost in the crowds and gawp at the rainbow coloured floats and the passionate Samba Schools of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival and get ready for a party like you’ve never experienced before.
  • Tango with the best in Buenos Aires.

Travel Tips

  • Brush up on your Spanish, as it’s the official language of most of South America, and a little effort goes a long way with the locals.
  • While much of South America is friendly to tourists, extreme poverty means some areas in large cities are off-limits. Keep your wits about, make smart decisions and you’ll only have great experiences.
  • Much like North America, South America is big on affordable bus journeys. The only difference is the variety of passengers you’re likely to meet - from a live chicken to your new best friend.
  • South America straddles the equator and the tropic of Capricorn, meaning most of the continent experiences a tropical climate. However, temperatures vary on the time of year and be aware that the southern part experiences reversed seasons, so plan your wardrobe carefully.
  • Visit your doctor before you travel and make sure you’re up-to-date on all vaccinations and medications needed for travelling in South America.
  • Eat local, it’s the best way to immerse yourself in the local culture and it’s also usually the cheapest way to get a good meal.
