    4.0 - Good

    One of the highlights for me was the Tango show in Buenos Aires, really enjoyed that. The dinner and show in Cusco was a bit of a let down. I thought the accommodations were fine , nothing to rave about. I was not impressed with the Cusco hotel or the one... Read more

Questions & Answers

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

    • How fit do you have to be to do this tour?

      It is important to note that this tour includes elevated heights and many steps to climb in Machu Pichu, Cusco etc so is recommended to have good fitness and health level. At any point on the tour, you can choose to not join some of the activities that seem strenuous if you wish and just wait till the rest of the group have finished.

    • When is the weather at its best to travel on this tour?

      In regards to weather, winter (May – September) is the driest season and therefore the best time of year to travel, especially if you're planning to visit Cusco or trek to Machu Picchu. The summer (December – March) is warmer of course but is also the wettest season.

    • Are the flights included?

      All internal flights are included in the Ultimate South America tour.

      Flights before and after the tour (international flights) are not included in the tour price. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.
