The South America tours operator SouthAmerica.travel has released the dates for their upcoming guided South America tours, to take place September through October of 2014.
Each year, SouthAmerica.travel offers guided tour departures, also called “Special Edition tours,” in addition to its usual offerings of custom, tailor-made tours to South America. These escorted Special Edition tours include the Essence of Peru, a 2-week vacation through Peru; the South America Wine Tour to Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay; and the Brazil Oktoberfest in Blumenau.
The co-founders of SouthAmerica.travel, Juergen Keller and Bradley Nehring, say that they carefully crafted these “Special Edition” versions of their most popular South America tours several years ago, in order to offer an additional escorted option for travelers who want a professional guide with them every step of the way.
“Escorted tours are not the norm in South America,” said Juergen Keller, CEO of the company. “Travel through South America works differently than in Europe, for example. It's not typical to board a tour bus and travel to multiple destinations in a group bus. Instead, customized tour packages are the best way to visit the continent. You choose which destinations you want to see, and then your tour operator makes the arrangements for you. You may have a different tour guide each day, or in each destination.”
But for those travelers who want a private guide with them throughout the journey, an escorted tour is the best option.
“We chose the South America Wine Tour, the Essence of Peru Tour, and the Oktoberfest Tour to be our featured Special Edition tours because these are some of our most favorite tour itineraries,” said Bradley Nehring, Vice President of SouthAmerica.travel. “Plus, these tours tend to attract higher-end clients who want the added comfort of a fully-escorted tour.”
The Essence of Peru Special Edition tour, a 2-week itinerary, runs from Sept 20th-Oct 4th, 2014. The price per person starts at $3340. The tour begins and ends in Lima, and all tours, hotels, guides, transfers, entrance fees, all breakfasts and some meals, and taxes are included. All hotels are 4-star or 5-star quality.
The second guided itinerary on the calendar South America Wine Special Edition tour, which covers the best wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay. The dates for this tour are Oct 4th - 13th 2014. Price per person starts at $3462. The tour begins in Santiago and ends in Buenos Aires, and all tours, hotels, guides, transfers, entrance fees, all breakfasts and some meals, and taxes are included. All hotels are 4-star or 5-star quality.
The Samba, Waterfalls, and Oktoberfest tour is a unique way to see Brazil and Argentina, during the Blumenau Oktoberfest in the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil. The dates for this tour are: October 13th – 22nd , 2014. Price per person starts at $3587. The tour begins in Iguassu Falls and ends in Rio de Janeiro, and all tours, hotels, guides, transfers, entrance fees, all breakfasts and some meals, and taxes are included. All hotels are 4-star or 5-star quality.
In the spirit of specializing in multi-country South America tours, SouthAmerica.travel has also designed these tours to be easy to combine. Travelers can choose to book a combination of these guided tours or do all three. A travel consultant can also help arrange add-ons and other customizations.
Another advantage of these Special Edition tours is that they are scheduled for the off-season. September and October is an excellent time to visit South America, when it is springtime in most of these regions.
