Tour Leaders
Duncan oozes adventurous spirit, having travelled extensively around the world; he fell for Latin America’s vivacious charm over a decade ago and now lives in Lima where he runs his own guesthouse. Known for his wealth of knowledge due to many years of experience and great sense of humour, you are destined for a memorable trip under his leadership.

Duncan is passionate about this mesmerising continent; his favourite spots are the Laguna de los Tres at the base of Mount Fitzroy on a clear day and sunsets on the beach in northern Peru. While he has a fond memory of catching a mass of ice break off from the ice field at the top of Paine Grande mountain which sparked an avalanche tumbling down the cliff and left the group showered in an ice cloud. He is a big believer in being good-humoured, patient and open-minded.

My top tips

1.

Bring a good sense of humour and an open mind.

2.

Taste as many local dishes as possible.

3.

Don’t be phased by the ever-changing climate – pack light.
