1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Torres del Paine park with its magnificent vistas.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

South America has some 'interesting' quirks including frequent changes of departure times and cancellations by airlines, toilet paper goes in the bin not the toilet (yuk!), limited services in many hotels (eg no tea/coffee other than with meals, poor maintenance) and a manana attitude (no hurry). But also friendly people, good local food and excellent wine (in Chile and Argentina anyway). Learn some Spanish especially in more remote areas - even if they speak some English, the effort to speak their language will be very well received. Tips not essential but warmly welcomed.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Lots of local people get jobs with tourism and the level of environmental awareness was surprising. Real effort made to reduce rubbish, keep visitors to marked paths, reduce impacts on local wildlife.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Challenging in parts eg the extreme cold in Patagonia, but really interesting if you keep an open mind and go with the flow.

Epic scenery throughout.

Double check weather forecasts for when you are traveling. We were unfortunately affected badly by the “Bolivian winter.”

Hotels seem very environmentally minded.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Really enjoyable time.
