Our trip and pre-trip were outstanding. 'Nacho' is a superb guide, anticipating our individual and group needs and making everything happen smoothly and enjoyably. We would love to travel with him again.

We were apprehensive about a "suitcase" tour, but shouldn't have been. This tour takes you to everything amazing about South America. You MUST do the Peru extension: Machu Pichu is a "bucket" experience!

This was perhaps the best trip we have taken with any agency. The Cruise Director was beyond excellent or as he would say every day when he asked how we were Execellante. We learned much about every place we went, we got to meet the people and the Director Nacho Gonzalez Eiras went out of his way to introduce us to the countries, the culture and the people. His insight, organization were beyond the call to duty. Nacho went far beyond with "treats from the country" that we got every day so that we could know that what we did and saw was not better not worse but different and thus understand. He arranged adventures for us and advised us where to go on our free time. The suggestion and arrangement for us in Rio to go to the Samba or cultural show was fantastic. The trip itself was eye opening as we saw everything from the eyes of experienced guides and we were travelers not tourists as we went from country to country and event to event. The chance to meet and be with the people and hear from them was just wonderful. Accommodations were excellent and the trip was as I said wonderful.
The optional tours were often a highlight and in particular the last one we took to the "slums" of Rio with a professional guide for these areas. We learned so much as to what, why , and how of these vibrant neighborhoods and we got to meet the people there, we came to understand how the government is making life better for those who are not wealthy.
We plan to keep in touch with Nacho and to go on another adventure in which he is Tour Director.

This is one of the best trips we have ever taken and this is because of our Travel Guide Ignacio Eiras . Nacho went well beyond the call of duty from the time he met us and referred to us as travelers not tourists to all the occasions he asked us to try a bit of the culture telling us "remember it is not better, it is not worse, it is just different" to arranging special trips for us, to having us meet his family. He gave up his own time to provide us with a morning walk through Buenos Aries on which we met his parents. There was never a dull moment and we never stopped learning; ask about the politics and we got an answer, ask about the culture and we got an answer, ask about economics and we got an answer. He always had time for those of us who were photographers and sometimes held the group up a bit. In addition the trip features in which we had the chance to go out and meet the people were outstanding. Hotels and meals were first rate.

This was, by far, the best land trip we have ever done due in most part to our tour leader, Nadia Gibson and her wonderful tour guides. Nadia went over and above what most tour leaders do for their group; she was always there to advise and help with any situations that came up, both before and during our trip. The different tours we took in each country were both informative and fun. We were impressed with the quality of the different hotels we stayed in during the tour. We look forward to doing another trip with Nadia in the future.

Silvina Fino was our tour director and we rate her excellent in every way! Unbelievable tour director. Everything was professional, on time, and always, she had a smile and a "surprise" for us. An A+++ rating for Silvina. We don't know how to rate the Peru pre extension. Eddy Perez and his staff did a great job as well.

The highlight of the trip was the Peru extension. Visiting Machu Picchu was an awesome cultural experience. In Peru life is more simplistic and very family oriented. Gotta love the llamas. Loved Chile especially the wine region around Santa Cruz. Enjoyed Buenos Aires and Rio. Our guide Pablo and all the local guides were full of interesting facts plus very personable. All the hotels and meals were really very,very much a plus. Great trip!

A wonderful trip and a real eye-opener for those of us with out-dated ideas about South America. The Program Manager and local guides did a fine job of informing the group about the cultures and political situations in each of the four countries visited. You must really like being in cities to fully enjoy this trip as most of your time is spent in Santiago, Montevideo, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro. But the trip to Iguazu was a real highlight. One downside for some members of the group was that there were three internal flights, taking up valuable travel time. But I don't know how else the trip could have been arranged.

This was an even better trip than I expected - and with Vantage, that's saying a lot! Our program manager couldn't have been more delightful, the local guides (especially in Chile) were excellent, we had great weather, the hotels were all very good and well-located, the food was great, and the scenery, pace & sight-seeing were outstanding. I highly recommend this trip.
