    5.0 - Excellent

    I really enjoyed this Tour and loved everything we got to see and do in every country. I was very pleased with our tour guide and loved how much knowledge she brought and shared with us during our time with her. Although I was robbed in Buenos Aires, I felt that I was supported and assisted by our tour guide as she helped me immediately after it happened and made sure I was safe and taken care of (money, calling back home, police report, etc). There were a few things I didn't like.... Firstly, I found that it was very hard to get along with the rest of the group in Buenos Aires because they had already been travelling together and it was very hard to connect with them right from Day 1. We couldn't do many things together because they had "already done them" before the tour started and they had already made their own plans. So overall, I just felt that it was hard to connect with them. Secondly, my friend and I were one of the oldest of the group and really didn't like the immaturity of some of the other tourists in the group. It was very hard to want to learn about a city or place when most of the people in our group are just worried about getting drunk or going to every bar on the street. Overall, I really enjoyed the Tour and Tourguide and felt I learned a lot about each of the countries I was in. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

    Amazing tour! Saw the main highlights I wanted to see in South America and many surprises a long the way. Accommodation was good, transport could be better (from Iguassu Falls to Sao Paulo), my guide was amazing. Definitely recommend this tour
