For years, many of the big companies have been trying to get us to sell their group tours to South America. We have tried selling tours from a number of those companies, but without much success. An agent from one of those companies came by our office last week and I explained the difficulties we had in offering their tours. Among those problems were:
In a region as vast and as close to nature as South America, many outdoor voyagers will find a bevy of adventures to explore. The continent is known for some of the best, most scenic day hikes, as well as the most challenging surfing waves, but there are still other activities that – in a way – defy modern convention. These ventures are aimed to take you out of your comfort zone; making sure that after your trip you realize there’s more to life than just city tours and hotel stays.
Never ones to stand still, the owners of the Refugio Amazonas and the Tambopata Research Center have been working hard to improve their products for your enjoyment.
