Escorted group tours

Travelling on a small group tour is a fantastic way to experience all that Latin America has to offer. You'll get to know other like-minded travellers on an inspiring shared journey.

Small group size – we not only confirm our tours with a minimum of just 4 passengers, we also cap them at 20 people (some tours have a lower maximum, please see individual tour details). This makes logistics easier and gives time for the tour leader to focus on everyone’s needs.  It also allows us to stay in more remote places, where accommodation is smaller, and use vehicles to suit the group’s size and needs.

Fully escorted tours – our tours are accompanied from start to finish by one of our exceptional JLA trained tour leaders. They speak the local language, and have personal in-depth knowledge of Latin America from years of travel, living and working on the continent. They deal with the practicalities, adapting to circumstances that arise and the individual needs of the group. For a few tours where necessary and where beneficial for the group we employ a local tour leader.

For more information on who our tour leaders are see our dedicated web page.

Solo travellers – our escorted tours run with a broad mix of demographics, but all with one thing in common - a love of travel. Whether part of a couple, group of friends/family or travelling alone, you’ll experience the wonders of Latin America with like-minded travellers. For solo travellers, there is no supplement if you are willing to share with someone of the same sex, but of course, if you’d prefer you can opt to pay for a single room and guarantee your own space.

Choose your style – we have a huge range of tours visiting nearly every corner of Latin America, from Cuba down to the tip of Patagonia. With two distinctive styles – Classic and Discovery, we hope there really is something for everyone, suiting all ages, budgets and ability. Even if you can’t find what you think might be suitable, speak to us. We will be as flexible as we can to make sure we prepare the perfect trip for you.

The JLA difference – we were among the first to offer escorted group tours in Latin America, and after leading the field since 1980 we know exactly how to find what’s new and exciting, as well as to stick with longstanding favourites our clients love. We are constantly updating our tours based on our own first-hand knowledge as well as the feedback that our tour leaders and customers provide. Our philosophy remains the same, and we hope we have come up with the perfect balance…
