South America Tours & Vacations

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

It is 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

Sarah · Traveled June 2024
I felt the guides tried to personalize the experience, for example, I’m learning Spanish and they would let me practice my Spanish with them. I felt they tried to get to know everybody and it was really important to them that we understand their culture. They were very patient and quick to respond. The tents were comfortable and the porters were amazing, all the food tasted like it came from a nice restaurant rather than the kitchen tent and waking up to hot coco tea and a bowel of hot water to wash our faces made the early mornings more tolerable.

The Inca Express trip was incomparable to other experiences. The knowledge and expertise that guides and the Intrepid team brought to this adventure made all the difference for an outstanding trip.

Bolivia is a hidden gem of South America and very much worth visiting for its amazingly wonderful people and the beauty of the landscapes and the cities. Do not skip Bolivia!
