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

We loved the day trip to Chiloe, the Cruce Andino trip, seeing Iguazu Falls, and the Perito Moreno glacier. We also booked a few extra excursions ourselves which were amazing.

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

Don't end up in Pueto Varas over new year because everything (restaurants, bars, tour operators) all close so you will have nothing at all to do!

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

It benefitted local people that work in the tourism industry - particularly as some of the places we went seem almost exclusively geared around tourism (eg. Calafate). However I don't think it reduced any environmental impacts or supported conservation particularly.

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

It was fantastic, a great part of the world to explore and would highly recommend our itinerary for anyone who wants to maximise things to see/do in a condensed period of time.

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

The Iguazu Falls and the Perito Moreno Glaciers were spectacular sceneries I never knew about before starting discussing the tour. I recommend everyone to go and visit these sites, including for the Iguazu Falls, the Argentinian side more than the Brazilian side.

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

I believe it is important to book early to secure the best hotels (or best hotel rooms). One should also see which is his/her level of fitness and consider hiking or boat rides instead for instance.

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

The tourist industry is important for the local economies, including in terms of employment for local people, but we did not really engage in buying stuffs. Some hotels appear to have a environment conscious programme, but I also found some place overheated which does not gel too much with energy conservation or efficiency.

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

Wonderful holidays! I wish I had though of visiting Latin America before (rather than exploring many parts of Asia).

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

So many! The most spectacular was the Perito Moreno Glacier which was jaw dropping! The journey as you cross the Andes mostly by boat is amazing with crystal clear lakes, high mountains and volcano`s and the Condor circling high above you.

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

Expect to be staggered by the scenery and expect some long distances between places especially to Torres del Paine National Park which took hours to drive to plus long hold ups between Argentina and Chile but it was so worth it! Be aware that some ATM`s do not work so also take Dollars which can be exchanged at most places.

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

Yes the hotels were all small none chain hotels and the use of all local south american travel companies.

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

Superb! The scenery and people were fantastic and travel support spot on.
