    A comprehensive private tour of the Falklands Islands in the South Atlantic is followed by a visit to the ice-clad mountain peaks and glaciers of Chilean Patagonia. The landscapes are wild, sculpted by ferocious winds and relentless glaciers, populated by hardy birds and mammals. But human communities cling to life and even thrive here; the sheep-farming Falkland Islanders are ever ebullient and you’ll get a welcoming smile from the Chileans.

    We think you can't find better in the world than Brazil for an adventurous, fun and educational holiday for families. The attractions are huge - the views from the Corcovado mountain’s statue of Christ in Rio, the monumental Iguazú Falls, the wildlife riches of the vast Amazon basin. Thrills and spills on a daily basis - but we've built in some relaxing beach-time as well.

    Virtually untouched by tourism, Guyana has English as its first language and cricket is the national sport. Culturally it's a melting pot of Afro-Caribbean, Amerindian, European and Asian influences. This holiday visits virgin rainforest, savannah and ancient tablelands over which spill the stunning Kaieteur Falls. The undisturbed landscapes are populated by a proliferation of wildlife: birdwatching is especially rewarding.

A highlights holiday necessarily takes you beyond the ethereal Lake Titicaca on a journey of unpredictability in a multi-layered country of sensual experiences.
