South America Tours & Holidays

Colourful, candid and everything in-between. South America beats to the rhythm of an infectious, eternal drum.

It’s the sequined heat of Carnival and a cool breeze blowing across the Andes, a fiery Argentine tango and the soft silence of an Ecuadorian cloud forest. You taste it in the crackle of slow-cooked barbecue and the tang of a good pisco sour. About the only thing the continent lacks is monotony. From the rocky slopes of Galapagos to the dawn-lit ruins of Machu Picchu, South America is effervescent with sights, sounds and salsa. Now, pass the empanadas and let's talk adventure.

Classic Peru

Jane · Traveled February 2024
If you're wavering about going on this tour of Peru, don't! It was absolutely amazing from start to finish! Leo our guide was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and kind. Matchu Picchu was stunning and an extra visit to Rainbow mountain was another highlight. The visit to the Reed houses and homestay were also very interesting. Thank you Leo and Intrepid for a wonderful tour...I'll definitely travel with you again!

Classic Peru

Anne · Traveled February 2024
Amazing trip! Machu Picchu, of course, did not disappoint but an extra excursion to Palccoyo Mountain was a memory I will never forget. This was truly an intro into various parts of Peru. I learned so much about its history and the Peruvian people. The boatride on Lake Titicaca and the homestay with a Quechuan family were surprisingly fantastic. Our guide Leo was spectacular…the perfect host. Highly recommend this trip.

Classic Peru

Joseph · Traveled February 2024
Quick bit comprehensive tour of Peru. The highlight was Machu Picchu but the side trips to Cusco, Aguas Calientes and Puno/Uros Islands/farm stay are excellent. We had a great group of travelers.
