How to customise your South America tour

At the trip-building stage, you can edit your itinerary by adjusting activities, hotels, durations in each location and timings of transfers. Use the filters to narrow down your search, making it easier for you to find the activities and hotels that suit you in that area. You can then see how the cost of your South America tour will increase or decrease if you select a new hotel or activity, and will always be notified about the new package price before you make a change – though don’t worry, nothing is set in stone until you are ready to put down a deposit on the trip! You can also easily see what’s included, and in some cases choose whether you want to add in more amenities or services. If you’ve booked your flights already, you can add this information to the itinerary too, but if not, we will arrange this for you once we’ve discussed it all together.
