The Explorer (From 18th March 2016)

South America Explorer

18 Apr 2014 - 06 May 2014

Great intro into South America. Peru is full of culture, Argentina is more like a Spanish European town, and Brazil is beautiful and something else. This tour joins with a few that have already been together for a week (if not longer), which would have been nice to know before hand. Optionals were poorly organized and many that were advertised were not actually available to do, and it was obvious Contiki is still working out the kinks. I'm glad I got to see and do everything that I did, had a blast but would be the worst tour of the now 4 that I have done.
