Chile Tours & Trips Reviews

  • "Over the years of travelling, we have seen incredible sights, met great people but the Codor experience was nothng short of amazing and fascinating. The tour guide (Fitzroy) was awesome and the incredible views of the mountains will remain with us our entire life. I have convinced everyone to try and experience how great it is to be in the mountains."

    Antarctic Explorer
  • "Experiencing the wondrous places in South America was the major highlight of the tour. It was a combination of smaller tours which is great because the tour guide changes in each country. Though there were intances of miscommunication between the local tour guides, the tour was still amazing. Our tour guides - Joanna in Ecuador and Martin in Chile/Argentina were impressive as they were knowledgeable, friendly and went above and beyond to give us the most exciting experience. The accommodation was better than what I had expected and always near the center of each town."
