Cultural integration truly a highlight. Not your basic tourist destinations but a nice blend of them and true local life.

This is a great trip, more of an adventure really although with good accommodation and tour leaders. Machu Picchu and Iguazu in one trip is amazing enough but the Lake Titicaca homestay and visits to local communities in Peru and Brazil were also real highlights. Buenos Aries and Rio were also fantastic cities. Good value for money
