1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The scenery was beautiful everywhere. The Perito Moreno glacier was spectacular and the penguins were adorable.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't book the premium tour, not worth the extra cost.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was nice, but not in my top ten. There were some disappointments with hotels, meals provided, transportation.

Read the operator's response here:

Hi Lise, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on your Patagonia tour with us.
We're delighted you enjoyed the stunning scenery and wildlife, but we're sorry to hear about the elements that fell short of your expectations and that you feel the tour did not represent good value for money. Your input is valuable, and we've shared it with our Product and Operations teams for future improvements.

By travelling on this trip, you were directly supporting our partner, Torres del Paine Legacy Fund. Donations help them preserve, support, and celebrate the Torres del Paine National Park and its surrounding communities. Our trips are also low impact by design. We use public transport where possible, stay in locally owned accommodation, and eat at locally owned eateries. We hope to welcome you back on another trip in the future.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Working on the ranch and riding horses in Uruguay

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Enjoy the culture and people in South America

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The guides used locally owned restaurants and recommended that we use the cloth bags they gave us when shopping rather than using plastic or paper.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We took 2 different trips and combined them. The trips were excellent. I loved being in Patagonia and I enjoyed the hiking in Torrey del Piney. As I mentioned before 3 days riding horses and working on a ranch with Juan in Uruguay will always be remembered.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


We just can't get enough of the Amazon, not only as a jaw-dropping travel destination but also as a global treasure and this trip will help to ensure that the incredible Amazon Rainforest is here for us to enjoy for generations to come! Our Amazon Fund will help support on the ground projects by our long time partners Greenpeace and WWF. By booking your Latin American adventure with us you're helping us work towards a sustainable future for the Amazon.


This trip gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the culture and vibrant history of Latin America. There are numerous chances for local interaction as we cover so much ground using all means of public transport. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from a friendly local who strikes up a conversation during your journey.

Your leader and the occasional local guide will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some Spanish at the same time). All travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible.

Local guides are employed to help explain as much as possible about the cultural differences and the historically significant places that we visit. This also allows us to appreciate the importance of preserving and respecting these sites and to help us minimise the impact of our visits.

There are plenty of opportunities to support local merchants in the markets and stalls that we pass along the way. We can purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans and learn more about the importance of preserving these crafts.
