Start your South America holiday with us

Join our South America tour packages and set off in search of dramatic landscapes, idyllic beaches and extraordinary culture.

Visit Brazil - the largest country on the continent, and home to a variety of wildlife and natural wonders that is almost unparalleled. It also boasts one of the most colourful and lively cities on the planet - Rio de Janeiro. See the iconic, towering Christ the Redeemer statue, ride the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain and perhaps catch a Ginga Tropical Show in the evening to enjoy the vibrant spectacle of Brazil's traditional music and dances. 

In Argentina, the powerful Iguazú Falls makes for an emotive outing, with the chance to spot wildlife including big cats and monkeys in the surrounding jungle. The country's cosmopolitan capital, Buenos Aires, delights visitors with its elegant architecture and charming neighbourhoods, including historic San Telmo and colourful La Boca. 

Peru offers the chance to visit the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Picchu - a particular highlight of many South America holidays. See the sights of culture-rich Lima, enjoy a tour of Arequipa - the White City - or embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the Amazon jungle. If your thirst for adventure and wild nature is still not quenched, a trip to the Galápagos Islands, home to paradisiacal Isla Lobos and eponymous giant tortoise, is sure to do it.
