We have been moving clients who booked for 2020 over to 2021 during this Covid period, frustrated that there was not much else we could do. Recently however borders are now starting to open down here and we can again turn our thoughts to quoting and reserving tours for people to visit Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, and Patagonia plus all the fantastic places we offer.

Below are the latest tourist entry requirements for countries where we operate. We will try to keep this list up to date but as you can imagine this is a very fluid situation. If you are thinking of traveling to a specific destination please check with us so we can get the very latest info for you:

Note: It seems that the 72-hour minimum period for PCR tests needs to be valid at the time of boarding the plane, not upon arrival. This is not absolutely clear in all cases, so please double-check.

PLEASE buy travel insurance to cover your trip, EVEN when it is not specified by the country you are traveling to. The cost is nothing compared with what could be lost or charged in another Covid type situation.
