Tailor-Made Journeys

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 South America tours since 1995 and is 100% Australian owned.

The South America Travel Centre Difference

Experts In Latin America

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.

A Tailor-Made Tour Just For You

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.

Reputation and Client Testimonials

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.

Galapagos Cruise Travel Centre

As there are so many different Galapagos Cruise ships to choose from we have created a dedicated Galapagos Islands Cruise web site.  Here you’ll find the Tourist Superior, First Class and Luxury Galapagos Island Cruise ships.  All ships have fixed itineraries departing and specific days of the week.

Guides with in depth knowledge

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.

24/7 in-country assistance

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.
