“Excellent Tour. Ticked all the boxes for me. Iguazu Waterfalls were amazing. Patagonia Glacier Patagonia Express, just being able to get to it then travel on this old railway was amazing. Ushuaia, city at the end of the world, old Penal colony railway, brilliant.

“Although our tour was badly affected by adverse weather conditions at the beginning, our tour manager, Martyn worked extremely hard to ensure that everything that we had been promised as part of the holiday was delivered, and even added in extras, which hadn’t been part of the original itinerary. Excursions and activities were varied and interesting. Overall, an enjoyable holiday.

“Great, full on India experience. For me the highlights were Jaipur and Agra. Lots of travelling and perhaps an extra day in Jaipur and Agra would have improved the trip You will need a couple of days at the end to recover
