South America is one of the most fascinating places on Earth. While the cruise lines focus on your transportation, we focus on your destination.

In Buenos Aires, enjoy a shore excursion to the fascinating city center or travel to an authentic horse ranch where "Gauchos" will share their unique way of life with you. On one of our Montevideo shore tour trips, see the Parliament Palace and the many other architectural and cultural highlights of this city. In Rio de Janeiro, enjoy a shore excursion to world famous Sugar Loaf with its stunning views of the city or discover Corcovado and the fascinating Christ the Redeemer Statue.

Wonderful tour
January 30, 2022
My wife and I took a wonderful tour to Casa Penaflor from the port city of Puerto Chacabuco. Casa Penaflor is a charming unique estate located in the mountain side area above the inland capital of the Aysen region named Coyhaique. Our tour guide Angi speaks three languages and her English was superb. Angi not only provided colorful descriptions of the route through this gateway to Patagonia but she and her husband Guido hosted a tour of their remote and beautiful setting. The route to and from Casa Penaflor was bounded by outstanding views of mountains, rivers, and flora. We highly recommend Angi and this Shore Excursion.

Cartagena

I was surprised that there were only 3 of us on this tour. Our guide knew the city well. He was able to provide history of the city, different perspectives, and show us many interesting things during this tour.

Eat the Ceviche!
January 08, 2022
Yes, it was the height of the Omincron outbreak. Yes, it seemed like it was a good idea to book a street food tour in Cartagena. And you know what - IT WAS THE BEST DAY!!! Wally is a fantastic guide! You are in very good hands (which were sanitized, of course). Wally hand-picks the most trusted and safest street food vendors, based on the types of foods your group wants to try. DO NOT MISS the fried plantains with cheese - OMG! And I got nervous about the ceviche, but it was soooo amazing! We also got the ripest, freshest fruit from some lovely ladies and another dish that I can’t spell, but it was really good too! You will be full of food, facts and love of this city after this tour!! We were a group of four, so we were able to request what we wanted to try, and the city was still decorated for the holidays, which added a special touch to our visit.

Nice and comprehensive city tour
January 07, 2022
We really enjoyed our tour with Benny as tour guide. There was only three on our tour allowing us to ask questions etc. We had four stops altogether. Missed some more walking time in the Old City.

Private Cartagena Highlights
January 02, 2022
I highly recommend this tour. Sandy got us into places that would otherwise have been closed in Cartagena, while giving us a wealth of information about the history and culture of the city and of Columbia. Because he was born and raised in Cartagena, he knew many details someone else would not, and he infused every conversation with an obvious love for his city. We look forward to a return visit.

See the City Like a Local
April 16, 2020
Unfortunately, we don't remember the name of our guide, but he did a great job. This is the way to see a city....walking, taking a bus, taking the subway. You really get a feel for the city and the people on a tour like this. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was fun to walk and talk about the history and current events.

Great Tour
April 16, 2020
First off our guide was Rodrigo and he did a great job. He did an awesome job discussing the city, its history and the current events shaping Chile. Chile was having some issues and Rodrigo did a great job explaining what was happening while remaining objective. We really feel that we walked away with a better understanding of the city and country. He also recommended a perfect lunch spot overlooking the town square - awesome lunch!
