    4.5 - Excellent

    We had a fantastic time, worth every penny! Our tour director Paulo was excellent, he made the trip worthwhile and informed us about everything and all we needed to know. He cared for every little detail, had everything prepared and made us all feel comfortable and safe. Apart from that the tour was well designed. We saw the best of every country and learned so much from the local guides, who were all good, especially Rudy in Cusco. All together this trip is highly recommended and a great thank you to Cosmos.

    4.5 - Excellent

    Really enjoyed getting a taste of Brazil, Argentina and particularly Peru, seeing many famous sites for myself. Our group generally got on very well, our tour director was well organised, the local guides mostly excellent, enthusiastic and interesting, the accommodation was clean and comfortable, food really good. Unfortunately most of we 24 on the tour caught a cold around the time we arrived at high altitude which meant coping with altitude sickness was extra hard for some of us. But overall the trip was a great success.
