Tour Leaders
Max’s adventurous spirit led him to Latin America fresh out of University where he chose to learn Spanish and travel. Fortunately during his travels around the world, one job led to another, and he landed the perfect excuse to return. Max is a born traveller; he thrives off the flux, lack of uniformity and spending most of his time in the great outdoors. Max is full of enthusiasm and anecdotes about this fascinating continent, where he feels most at home.

Although impossible for him to highlight one favourite spot, a place he always looks forward to visiting is Buenos Aires, where a tasty steak and a fun night out with friends is guaranteed. Following Max’s principles, you’re sure to catch some local character and gain a feel for everyday life - a treat you wouldn’t find in a guide book.

My top tips

1.

Opt to walk up Machu Picchu (even though longer) as oppose to Huayna Picchu if you are a keen walker.

2.

An umbrella in Central America is often quite handy.

3.

Visit Torres del Paine in Autumn (March & April) as the leaves are changing colour and it is relatively quiet.
