Learn about who we are (and what we are not), what we do (and what we won’t), why it matters, and why you can trust us with your trip to South America. We even share some great tips on how to choose the right online travel agency! That´s who we are
If you are reading this page it probably means that you have already spent several hours online searching for the right option for your South American tour and the right travel agency. Do you feel lost between the (too) numerous websites selling trips to South America and wonder who to trust?
You might have stumbled upon a South American travel agency with competitive prices and great offers, but you are not sure whether they will deliver on their services, as you have never heard of them before.
So you are wondering whether it would be safer to spend the extra money to book your trip with a global tour-operator selling non-specialized tours all over the world, rather than give a try with a local South American travel agency?
As a professional South American travel agency based in 6 countries with passionate travelers working behind the scenes, everyone at Latin Discoveries knows about this dilemma. There is an unbelievable amount of online travel agencies offering trips to South America, some extremely reliable and other that you should avoid at all costs, so where should you look? From the highly popular tour professionals broadcasting to thousands of social media followers selling hundreds of different destinations to the cheaper agencies with poorly-designed and questionable websites void of customer reviews or any references, where is the right fit for you?
Don’t worry: ‘the truth is out there’ and we are going to help you make the right decision by unveiling the truth about travel.
We are a group of over 100 South American travel experts that have been operating fully customized private and group tours in South America and only in South America since 1997. We currently welcome an average of 6,000 travelers each year. For over 20 years, we have been designing and selling all kinds of trips (private, group, incentives) to major Canadian, French, Belgian, Swiss and Spanish travel agencies and tour operators through our Gaston-Sacaze brand. And we have been selling tours directly to English-speaking travelers from all over the world through our Latin Discoveries brand and website since 2006.
Our 100+ Travel Experts have visited and vetted every single one of the tour guides, hotels, restaurants, and activities we offer to ensure the best possible service and experience during your visit. Most of us are native to this beautiful region and know our country inside out. In short: we know EXACTLY what we are offering you.
We sell South America from our 9 offices located in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru. That means that when you book with us, one of us will be talking to you, designing, organizing, and managing your travel experience from A to Z. This means no third parties, complex communication trails, or inflated prices due to a multitude of actors along the way. You get streamlined communication, from recognized local Travel Experts, at a very competitive price.
We offer you flexibility as you can customize your tour by choosing from 3 hotel categories and 3 meal plans while booking your tour directly online. If you are looking for a completely personalized experience, our Travel Experts will be more than happy to elaborate on a 100% tailor-made tour that can combine up to 6 countries.
Creating an immediate positive impact on our planet is extremely important to us. That's why we donate 1% to the NGO Nature and Culture International towards the conservation of 3 endangered South American ecosystems. And as you get to pick the ecosystem you want us to support, we both commit to the future of our planet!
Last but not least: 95% of our guests go back home delighted. Your satisfaction is ours too! It makes us happy and inspires us to keep up working passionately on crafting unforgettable travel experiences!
