Welcome to our blog

Hello, we are very excited to welcome you to our new blog! We’ll share stories of what’s happening in South America, what we love, what’s new, useful information about where to stay, what to do and most importantly where to eat!

A bit about us – We're a boutique company, we’re all about creating authentic and delicious journeys with seamless private service at the highest level.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT


COMPLETELY TAILORED AND UP-TO-THE-MINUTE RECOMMENDATIONS
We’re a well-connected team and know that the wine bar that offered the best by the glass offering last year may not be the same this year. We travel regularly and use our network of contacts to ensure we have our finger on the pulse and the second we hear about a new hot spot, you will too.

BIG BRAND EXPERIENCE SMALL COMPANY CARE
We have taken all the learning’s from specialising in South America for the biggest names in travel and channelled those into a boutique company that personalises experiences. To us, a client is a person not a transaction. 

FOOD-OBSESSED
We live for delicious culinary experiences. Not only do we include highlight evenings out but we also provide suggestions as to the best places to sample the local delicacies, we can also make restaurant reservations on your behalf and partner with accommodation providers and local operators that get the importance of a delicious dining experience.
