Tour Leaders
Italian born Daniele is not shy with his unwavering passion for Latin America which has inspired him to travel extensively across the continent – from the cold plains of Tierra del Fuego, through the tropical forests of Brazil, via the remote Guianas, to the Yucatán’s temples and pyramids. Unsurprisingly he cannot pin point a favourite place, as each location under the given circumstances always offers something different. However, a treasured memory is having witnessed the impressive Machu Picchu ruins under a magical rainbow.

Over the years as a tour leader Daniele has enjoyed a lot of fun, for example a New Year’s Eve party where the entire group dressed up in party hats and danced the night away, but he maintains that his favourite aspect is sharing that extraordinary moment when you stumble upon a sight which people had previously read, heard or dreamt about.

My top tips


Taste an oven-baked empanada often found in Argentina, along the Andes. They are simple, with a fresh crust and bursting with flavour.


Learn a few Spanish (or Portuguese for Brazil) phrases or questions as this can lead to unique opportunities.


For those who don’t only quench their thirst on alcoholic caipirinhas and pisco sours, try an avocado milkshake in Ecuador, a mote con huesillo in Chile, freshly-made chicha morada in Peru.
