Days 1-2 Santiago
Walk through Plaza de Armas, Santiago's historic centre and browse the colourful Central Market. Visit the Palacio de la Moneda, originally a colonial mint, which is now the seat of the President of the Republic of Chile. In the afternoon, why not take an optional vineyard tour before boarding an overnight bus to Pucon.

Days 3-5 Pucon
Thrill seekers will get a kick out of Pucon's bundle of adventure activities. The town lies at the foot of smouldering Villarrica Volcano so perhaps opt to hike to the impressive crater. Otherwise, explore the black sand beaches, conquer whitewater rapids or hike pristine forest trails.

Days 11-13 Buenos Aires
Between its Latin passion, European elegance and superb cuisine, Buenos Aires is a joy to explore. Nibble on alfajores, wander San Telmo's cobblestone streets, talk football with Portenos in a cafe or get a history lesson at the quirky Museo Evita. The hippest spot in town is Palermo's Plaza Serrano so head out in the evenings to tango with the locals. There are so many awesome things to do in Buenos Aires, it's simply a matter of trying to fit them all in!

2014 Chile & Argentina Discovery, April 2014
This was the best tour I have ever been to, largely because of our tour guide Martin. He went above and beyond what I would expect a tour guide to do, making us his friends and showing us an experience of the two countries we would never have seen without him.
