Unique and utterly memorable travel experiences for you. That’s our commitment at South America Travel Centre, along with quality, attention to detail and seamless service. We continually strive to build our knowledge of Latin America, searching out areas undiscovered by mainstream tourists. South America Travel Centre has been creating tailor made itineraries since 1995 and is 100% Australian owned.
As with most things in life experience counts and our team knows this astoundingly diverse region firsthand – we’ve lived and breathed it through our own travels and return again and again to discover new places and check in on old favourites. Our sole focus is Latin America – South America, Central America, Antarctica, Mexico and Cuba. Our passion for this region makes it a pleasure for us to continually research, explore and build relationships so that we can craft unique, exceptional value journeys.
Your entire journey is designed personally for you and how you want to experience Latin America. You will travel on your own, at your pace, accompanied by private guides and drivers with private, air conditioned vehicles (effectively your own tour). Once we have a good understanding of just what you’re looking for we begin to create a holiday that is perfect for you. For us, that’s one of the most rewarding parts of working in a specialist travel company; designing unique journeys to suit individual tastes, budgets and desires.
A large number of our clients come back to travel with us again or are referred to us by family and friends. Repeat clients are extremely important to us as a barometer of how well we look after you.
We take note of feedback from every client and set out to exceed expectations every time you travel with us. Here you’ll find a number of recent comments from past clients.
You will have one dedicated consultant who looks after you from the beginning to the end of your journey, ensuring every aspect of your holiday is seamlessly arranged. Your consultant will scrutinise your itinerary to ensure you will get the most out of your time in South America and no detail has been overlooked.
Many of our guides have been working with us for over a decade. The history of the region is a part of their heritage and their knowledge of historic sites has come from their ancestors as well as formal training. When you are visiting a city, historical site, wildlife sanctuary or other place of interest you are guided by someone who lives the intimate detail. Their knowledge is fundamental to ensuring your experiences are as rich as they can be.
Our in-country partners are amongst the very best – many have been with us since we began in 1995. There is always someone on hand in-country to help you out when you are on your trip. You can travel knowing you have someone looking out for you.
All of our accommodation has been specifically chosen for its charm and high quality service and we will recommend hotels based on what best suits your needs and personal preferences. To ensure quality we frequently visit the properties we recommend and actively review guest feedback to ensure expectations continue to be met. You can be confident that comfort and great service awaits at every stage of your journey.
The Singular Santiago
Top class design and the finest facilities. Usually located in a spectacular setting it may be an exclusive hotel in a meticulously restored historic building, or recognised as the leading property of an international chain.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
A perfect alternative to the big brand hotels:
exclusive and independently-owned properties with a smaller number of rooms and highly personalised services.
Palacio Del Inka
High quality with an excellent room standard, a full range of facilities and first-rate service; may be a new property or regularly refurbished with attention to ongoing maintenance.
Southern Amazon, Brazil
In the rainforests and jungles choose from a wide range of eco-lodges – from a comparatively luxurious retreat among the forest, to a complex of thatched cabañas in a lakeside location on a private reserve, to remote and rustic cottages offering a truly authentic experience.
Amazon River, Peru
Often the best way to observe dramatic scenery or experience the wonders in a world of amazing flora and fauna is by boat. And if you are looking for a voyage that will also offer the comfort of excellent facilities, there are several exclusive and sophisticated vessels that will fulfil your wish.
Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
There are many vessels operating cruises around the Galapagos Islands. We have selected a small number we recommend for our clients as we know they provide wonderful on-board experiences with frequent excursions onto the islands, always escorted by expert naturalist guides.
Latin America is a big place and our brochure is intended to be a starting point to inspire you and show how things might fit together.
