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.

Galapagos Island Hopping

Karin · Traveled February 2024
Best of the Galapagos Tour (10 days) was an amazing, unforgettable experience of a lifetime! Intrepid's guides in Quito (Marcello, Luis, and Anna) and on the Islands (Cesar (aka CheChe) were fantastic! It is difficult for me to identify a favorite experience from the trip, but highlights include swimming with baby sea lions, baby hammerhead sharks, and rays, seeing giant tortoises in the wild, hiking the world's 2nd largest volcanic crater at Sierra Negra, and making new friends from around the world. Thank you, Intrepid!

Inca Trail Express

Virginia · Traveled February 2024
I am so grateful to have been able to been a part of the quarry trail hike. Marcia, was amazing patient and encouraging through the entire hike. Her group to assist and support us were amazing. Balentin, Donato and Paulino were great during our overnight stays at the campsites. Loved my amazing hike adventure with this group. I was also fortunate to view a traditional blessing to the earth. What a great adventure.

Best of Galapagos

Barbara · Traveled February 2024
Best of Galapagos was a superb experience - cannot recommend it enough. The trip was well organised with a good balance of organised activities (alternatives given). Our guide, Cesar, is so knowledgeable and his passion and love for the Galapagos was infectious. Being a single, older lady I was made to feel safe and a welcome member of the Intrepid family.

Classic Galapagos: Central Eastern Islands (Grand Queen Beatriz)

Nick · Traveled February 2024
The Galapagos is best encountered on a smaller ship. An Intrepid tour of the islands delivers a personal experience of Galapagos' diversity but with the logistical support and creature comforts typical of much larger vessels.
