Trail-blazing Group Tours

 
Nowadays Latin America offers slick and professional tourist services and you can enjoy your holiday without incident, but in 1980 when Journey Latin America was starting up, things were very different. In celebration of our 30th birthday, and in the spirit of those unpredictable early days, we're putting on two very special, unique group tours.

Our founding directors, Chris Parrott and Brian Williams (who led our first ever group tours back in the early ‘80s) are accompanying the two tours, visiting a couple of relatively unvisited but undeniably captivating wilderness regions where adventure is still just around the corner.  You won’t find these trips on any other tour operator’s lists, and you certainly won’t be guided anywhere else by travellers of such experience, laden with anecdotes and insights.


Brian Williams & Chris Parrott will each accompany a unique group tour in celebration of our 30th birthday.
