Discovery Group Journeys

Our Discovery Journeys are designed to give a deep insight into Latin American life, land and history.

Our Discovery Journeys are designed to give a deep insight into Latin American life, land and history. We travel along occasionally bumpy back-roads, discovering the fascinating places many tourists miss, and mostly stay in small family-run hotels and guesthouses. With an emphasis on creating an experience that's adventurous in spirit, we seek out new trails, local fiestas, markets and quirky sights to really get under the skin of each destination.

No one is better placed to escort you on these adventures than our award-winning tour leaders, who are adept at seeking out the little bars, authentic restaurants and hidden gems that will make your trip truly memorable. They'll introduce you to the local people, and take you that one step further to discover something a bit different wherever you go. Sometimes the journey will take you off the beaten track, but we'll also be sure to visit the must-see highlights that inspire you to travel in the first place.

We've chosen simple to mid-range accommodation and we use a mix of private and public transport to get around as swiftly and comfortably as conditions allow. As a result our Discovery Journeys offer not just authenticity but great value for money.
