    The variety of activities was great. Truck life is fun and the fellow passengers were really enjoyable to travel with.

    4.5 - Excellent

    Had an amazing trip, way of the beaten track, half way up the atmosphere, saw so few other tourists, met so many people and travelled with a great bunch of people. Thanks Ant and Adam, so enjoyed it. Best bit riding across the cordillera at the Estancia

    Dragoman commented on this review

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Santiago<- ->Rio de Janeiro (from Rio De Janeiro to Santiago) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.
