From Hobby to Profession
Back in 1996 we made one of the many trips we where doing at the time but this particular one did change our lives.
It was our first experience in Latin America and specifically Cuba just when the Country opened its borders to the first Tourists after more than 30 years of isolation.
People would name it love on first sight and this was more than a fitting description in our case. A few more visits followed to meet more of Latin America and the decision was taken that our hobby would become our profession.
Seeing that as beautifull and diverse as South America and the Carribean was, many foreigners visiting would have difficulties organizing and exploring their choosen country at a fair cost without dilluting the experience and without facing typical "local problems" we made it our mission to change that.
Jumping forward its 18 years since we organized our first trip for travelers to South America we have over the years accumulated lots of knowhow and overcame various difficulties so that you dont have to face any of them and you can focus on whats important.
Seeing the Southern part of the Americas as it is.
Unique, lively and beautiful.

Supporting the Local Community
Being here for quite some time, we have seen the diffculties that the native population has to face either economically or enviromentally.
We have taken it to heart to help through our programs by hiring local staff and operators and to guide our visitors to native communities without going overboard wherever possible and respecting their way of life but still giving those people an opportunity to live well in their habitat without having to move to the bigger cities which has changed many indigenous communities over the past 30 years.
