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.

Inca Trail Express

Angela · Traveled April 2024
Absolutely amazing experience. I travelled solo and was nervous but as soon as we all met as a group it was like we had know each other forever! Edwin and Herbert our guides were amazing, so encouraging and the chefs, and porters were out of this world. How they do what they do astounds me. They are all superheroes and made the whole Inca Trail experience so much more fabulous!!! It's tough but the guides are there to get you through and I would 100% recommend doing this trip

Inca Trail Express

Sean · Traveled April 2024
The trip was amazing! The tour guides (Frank, Edwin and Herbert (Ever)) made the experience truly unforgettable. The chiefs made the most amazing food up the mountains and the porters were fantastic. The experiences and days trips whilst in Cusco were also incredible Would thoroughly recommend this once in a lifetime trip with Intrepid

Inca Trail Express

Our train option to see Machu Pichu was very exciting. Frank was an excellent leader/guide and Intrepid is a very professionally run tour group.

Inca Trail & Amazon Adventure

Tracey · Traveled April 2024
I booked the Inca trail through intrepid as recommended by a family friend. I would now also advise anyone who is thinking of taking an adventure holiday to book through intrepid. Going forward this will be the company of my choice. The guides are amazing and knowledgeable. The trips and accommodation are great. I would highly recommend.

Best of Brazil

Caitlin · Traveled March 2024
This was my first Intrepid trip and I was very pleased! I now want to book more trips. I recommend adding a day or two at the end to explore Rio in more depth. I also wish there was an extra day in each Paraty and Ilha Grande because there was so much to see and do! Overall an excellent trip.
