Recently placed in the top 5 guides in the world in the Wanderlust Reader Awards, Etienne’s fascination with Latin America began aged 22 when he dared to backpack from cosmopolitan New York to wild and sultry Buenos Aires. He now lives in Rio de Janeiro and has worked with us as a tour leader for over 30 adventure-filled years. Over this time he has accrued a vast network of contacts, boundless knowledge and fanciful anecdotes which you couldn’t find in a guide book. He thrives off the unexpected and meeting different people, while his favourite spots are the nature-filled Pantanal, the Andean highlands and the Guyanas.
As you follow Etienne his good humour and relaxed manner are sure to put you at ease, creating an ideal atmosphere for your tour.
"Etienne couldn't have been more helpful and informative; he went out of his way to arrange additional trips and showed us a lot of the non tourist South america. He gave good advice regarding dining etc. throughout the trip and his company enhanced our holiday."PM, Corsham
