Testimonial
Michael Hollway Canada 07-16-2013 - This trip was a real "game changer" on my life! I have wanted to go to South America since I was 14. I made it 38years later! Well wort the wait. I will keep San Pedro de Atacama and Torres del Paine in my heart forever. I am having a lot of trouble deciding what was best... each day was richer than the previous. I will never forget. Thank you!
