Welcome to South America! A land rich with exotic flavors, personalities, adventures and welcomed surprised. This website is dedicated to helping you choose from the best South America tours and understand the differences between various South America tour companies. South America tour packages will take you on an extraordinary vacation where you can experience both man-made and natural wonders.
There are several reputable tour companies we can recommend, but which is best for you would depend on what you want to see and do while on your trip, how much time you have, and what your budget is.
Other things to consider when choosing a South America tour are: Do you want to focus on one country at a time with an in-depth tour, or do you want to combine some of the most popular countries together in one visit? Are you looking for adventure or do you prefer luxury hotels? Do you want to focus on adventure, nightlife, wildlife, wine, archaeology, or all of the above?
There are a variety of different travel styles to choose from to South America including escorted trips, adventure travel, small group tours, family vacations and more.
A cruise up the jungle-lined Amazon River as caimans splash into the water in front of you? Stand in the presence of Iguazu Falls - a waterfall taller and wider than Niagara Falls? Watch the sun rise above the intricate ruins of Machu Picchu? Or perhaps a voyage along Magellan's route around the southern tip of South America for a glimpse of the wilds at the end of the world.
Keep in mind that the seasons are opposite to ours here in the U.S., so their winter season is June to September. The peak time to travel to South America is therefore December through March. That is not to say you cannot travel at other times. Buenos Aires for example is pleasant anytime. We recommend Iguazu Fall in the spring. Peru is nice January through May. Call a travel specialist to discuss your plans in more detail.

In Brazil, you might be drawn to the glamour of Rio, but venture beyond the infamous Copacabana Beach, and you will find thousands of miles of beach to explore, traditional Afro-Brazilian culture, colonial towns, rainforests, and spectacular views.
