Great trip except hotel in Santiago was under renovation. I would NOT do this trip if this hotel is on the itinerary. It is not fabulous as described in the itinerary.

This trip was phenomenal. A huge part of this was down to our tour leader, Valentina, who went above and beyond in her role. We were so lucky to have her show us these incredible countries with her knowledge, sense of fun and enthusiasm. It was my first time visiting South America, and I know it won’t be my last. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime!

This was our first time traveling to Chile and Argentina and we were not disappointed! The locations visited, local guides, excursions, and free time all worked together to create a truly memorable experience. Our tour leader Valentina took care of everything and could not have made a better experience for us. The food and wine were amazing and we could not have hoped for more. This trip absolutely exceeded our expectations!
