Mostly As
A tailor-made trip (or one of our Private Journeys) would suit you down to the ground. You love to see new places but don't enjoy all the uncertainty and laborious organisation involved in going it alone – your holiday time is precious and you'd rather trust a travel expert to get things right first time.

Mostly Bs

You enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and like the reassurance of a well-organised trip – have you considered a group tour? With a tour leader accompanying you from start to finish all the practicalities are looked after, while the other group members turn your holiday into a shared adventure.

Mostly Cs
You're a classic independent traveller – a free spirit who loves to go where the wind takes you. A tailor-made or group Journey Latin America holiday might not be for you, but we hope you'll find plenty to inspire you on our website. And why not book a few hotels or transfers for your must see destinations or speak to our Flights Only experts next time you feel the tingle of your itchy feet?
