"Developing custom itineraries all over South America, including Argentina, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador, Uruguay, and Bolivia.

I have a particular passion for food and active itineraries. Culinary tours and adventure, are all things I look at when building an itinerary!

I also specialize in creating the perfect trip for honeymooners, families and experienced travelers looking for the "real" South America"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I'd have to say my trip to Torres del Paine, Chile In the Spring of 2015. I did the W trek, the best trek of my life! Being so close to nature was just memorable! It was very challenging and the scenery is stunning. Each segment of the trek is unique and beautiful. Gorgeous views, flower-filled valleys, beautiful glaciers - it has it all!"
