Hi Sharon, I am looking at going to South America next year,I have a friend that has just came back last week ,she did her tours with Intrepid and found that several companies are joining together and itinerary was a little bit of a mess with other people , but she liked the trips . I am looking for a travel company that knows what they are selling me .as too many travel agents get people in trouble, especially travelling to South America. My friend flew through NZ then to Santiago, she got off there for 2 nights she said to leave the airport cost her $170.00 which she was not told ,I am not sure if that was the cost of her transfer to her hotel, but that was just the beginning of extras and missing flights.My daughter has been 3 times and stays with students from her English speaking school , she has been robbed, not let on flights been in many situations, she is in her late 30's, may be she has just been unlucky. I am gathering info from anyone so like you I am looking for help also.What company to travel with and where to go in SA.
How is your planning to South America going? I am still doing lots of research, maybe consider booking by next month. Which month next year will you be going?
Why is it even being answered on the Peru forum ?
If your daughter was robbed, overcharged and missed flights in Chile why posted on a Peru forum !
Please post your questions and answers on the corresponding countries and do not confuse travelers coming to Peru.
not sure if we will make it next year I would have liked to have gone in March or April we now are going to take our time doing just Peru (2 weeks) and not all the other countries , we want to add another trip also to north America so think it better to enjoy one country especially Peru .
