  • Peggy from FL gives this tour 

    From witty Santiago guide Jose to hiking expert Luke at Patagonia Camp, we learned so much about the city, Easter Island and Chilean Patagonia. At 80, Sandra was the oldest and perhaps most enthusiastic hiker on full-day excursions. We wanted contrast in our 10-days in South America: moving from lively, artistic Santiago streets to Rapa Nui's island serenity, to bracing winds and brisk walks in the Patagonian Andes, we had our wishes granted.

  • Sharon from VA gives this tour 

    Our A&R trip was fabulous! We were met by A&R rep Lizette at Santiago airport. She helped us onto our flight to Easter Island, then met us again when we returned to Santiago. She was our guide also for the day tour of the city and then she met us again the morning we flew out of Santiago for Punta Arenas for our Patagonia trip. We can't say enough great things about A&R in general and specifically Lizette. She was so enthusiastic about her country and she loved sharing it with us. She was always prompt, professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful and generous with her time. Her driver was Eduardo, and he was always so friendly & professional. We felt welcomed, safe and in good hands with both Lizette & Eduardo! Lizette is a superb representative for A&R! Easter Island was magical! Explora Rapa Nui was the best…beautiful facility with first-class accommodations, food, drinks & service… & great excursions with kind, knowledgeable guides. I would go back to an Explora resort in a heartbeat! Our experience there set the tone for a trip that was lovely beginning to end. The Le Reve Hotel in Santiago is charming; the staff was nice & professional and the location was convenient (we definitely felt safe).
