Atacama and Patagonia hiking holiday
Memorable parts? Trekking with the most amazing mountain backdrop for several days, in Torres del Paine, culminating in the climb up to Las Torres themselves; there just aren't the words to do this place justice. Tips? Do some walking beforehand, if you want to get the most from it. Also, don't forget a camera, or you will be truly sorry! Local benefits? Since we stayed, ate and drank locally, this should be a positive thing. Minimized environmental impacts is a bit tricky,... (more)Chris Senior

Memorable parts? Torres del Paine, Fitzroy Massif, Perito Glacier Best Accommodation - Pudu Lodge Best Camp - Camp Los Torres Best Meal - Estacia Lad Hijas Best Guide - Muti in Fitzroy Massif Tips? Bring a roll of toilet paper, walking sticks should be an essential part. Local benefits? Enjoyed the local hiking guides that were hired. Overall rating? Overall, was pleased with our decision to do this part of our travels as a tour. Appreciated all the bookings, transfers,... (more)Terry Brannigan

Chile tailor made holiday, Atacama Desert
The best thing was to to learn about the Mapuche, an indigenous tribe, who live in Chile. The food was unbelievably good.. (more)Victoria Edwards
The visit to the Atacama Desert area including the high Andes was special for me, and spending time with the indigenous farmer was really interesting. (more)Dave Thalrose
We had a fantastic time. Personally, the most memorable parts of the holiday were staying with the Pewenche family who were fantastic hosts, and stargazing in the Atacama with the Lickan Antay people. This was my first experience of community based tourism and I honestly believe it is the future of travelling. (more)Joe Davis
From £1395 - £1695 including domestic flights only
Patagonia overland tour, Villarica
Memorable parts? Seeing the Moreno glacier and hiking in Torres del Paine. Tips? Make sure you have appropriate footwear (hiking boots). There is no need to bring a sleeping bag as these can be hired at the time (and they are good sleeping bags). Local benefits? The only benefit to local people would be the custom of staying in hotels/eating in restaurants. We did make a conscious effort not to leave rubbish and I suppose 30+ people using 1 bus instead of various means of... (more)Frank Sperling

Patagonian adventure holiday in Chile and Argentina
Memorable parts? Torres Del Paine national park, with itís beautiful scenery. I could have stayed forever. And the most memorable bit was when we saw a puma! Every day had a memorable event though, I canít believe how much was packed into two weeks. Tips? Try to buy your own international flights to save money, although going into Santiago and leaving from Buenos Aires this may be expensive to do without the agent. Make sure you are used to mountain walking as some treks are 8... (more)Beth Barnes

Overland tour to South America, Andes to the Amazon
Memorable parts? Hiking on a glacier, coming face to face with penguins in Punta Tomba, canyoning down a 40 metre waterfall, meeting all my new friends Tips? We had a great time, and made 21 new friends... but it is quite intense being with other people for such a long time... bring earplugs and ipod and a very very warm sleeping bag. Local benefits? Yes, we always took our rubbish with us, and were careful not to make a mess. Overall rating? Had an amazing time,... (more)Caroline Eccles

Torres del Paine tour
Memorable parts? So many. Our great group & superb guides. First site of the mountains from Lake Pehoe & climbing to the Torres. Tips? Make sure you're in good shape for long & sometimes challenging hikes. Local benefits? Not sure of benefit to locals other than some employment.

Andes overland journey, Atacama desert to Machu Picchu
Memorable parts? Visiting Machu Picchu. Tips? Be prepared for the effects of altitude. We didn't get altitude sickness but suffered from tiredness, headaches and shortness of breath, especially when walking up hills. You need to give yourself longer to do things requiring physical effort. Local benefits? Yes, all guides, drivers and hotel staff were locals and we stayed with a local family on Lake Titicaca. There was an emphasis on conservation and reducing environmental... (more)Dianne Margaret Reidy

Patagonia adventure holiday, tailor made
Memorable parts? Eco-camping in Torres del Paine Tips? Beware. If you are not on a direct flight back to the UK - we changed planes at Madrid - you may have to change terminal and the authorities will take any liquid duty free off you. I'm still cross about my vintage Malbec! Local benefits? Yes, definitely. All 3 points. Overall rating? (more)Patricia Stott
From £2159 excluding flights
South America overland expedition, Andino
Memorable parts? Uyuni Salt Flats as it was amazing and of course Machu Pichu... despite climbing and barely seeing it from the Sun Gate, the clouds eventually lifted and we were able to get some gorgeous photos one of which I have attached. I also loved the town of Cuzco and Punta Sal in Peru. Tips? On this trip you would meet loads of travellers which I thought was good as you were able to share experiences and learn about people and their life choices! The most important thing...

Laguna Torca farmstay accommodation in Chile
Memorable parts? Soledad and Charles were incredible hosts. The surroundings were beautiful, the house was incredibly comfortable, and we enjoyed the serene nature all around us. We also enjoyed visiting the llamas, who were quite hospitable! Tips? The location is off the beaten path, but well worth the effort if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to visit. Local benefits? With the location in a small community, we definitely felt that we made a small contribution... (more)Sian Wayt Wingerup
