    4.0 - Good

    Our South America Express Tour was pretty much everything we thought it would be. We got to visit some amazing places, sample many different delicious foods and drinks, and we mingled with the locals. Our tour guide Neil was AMAZING! He's organised, very knowledgable about local history at each stop, energetic, a problem solver (and there were a few travel challenges for him along the way), a brilliant people person, not to forget an excellent 'foodie' guide as well. Hotels were pretty good, although the first 4 or so couldn't provide a hot shower. Transport options also pretty good. We had some long bus trips however the coaches were very comfortable and we passed through amazing scenery along the way. Overall we had a fantastic trip of a lifetime. I will certainly use Tucan again in the future.
