We’ve grown up with Latin America over our 37 years and moved on with it. Here are 5 reasons why we think you should choose a Journey Latin America group tour:

Our pioneering spirit

We were among the first to offer escorted group tours and holidays
tailored for individuals to Latin America. So by now we know how to find
what’s new, what to change and what to leave out.

Our expertise

Some of our own staff and tour leaders have been with us for over 25
years; their expertise is unrivalled among tour operators serving the
region.

Staff

Our staff

Virtually all our permanent staff are Latin American experts, dealing with all aspects of travel to the continent. Of these, six constitute our Group Tours team, dedicated to the research, operation, sales and administration of our Journeys.

We’ve found the top local guides who, working alongside our tour leaders, will look after, entertain and inform you with their specialist knowledge and insight.

Our relationships

We’ve forged long-standing relationships with the best suppliers of services and hotels all over the continent, while keeping our eyes open for new talent and new services.

Our flexibility

We understand that not everybody wants to fly to and from London. We have welcomed travellers from as far afield as the USA, Australia, Hong Kong and Europe. So, while we give details of flights and inclusive tour prices from the UK, our holidays begin and end in Latin America: you can join us from anywhere in the world and we can help you make your arrangements to do just that.

What’s more, your chosen Journey may not include something you particularly wanted to see or do. Although your group holiday has a fixed itinerary, we offer extensions you can add on before or after which may well fill the gap. These are not escorted by your tour leader but, where appropriate, they will be led by English-speaking local guides. Or you may be left alone to enjoy a beach wind-down.
