Looking for a South America trip planner service?
As you might have noticed from the website, I’ve spent a lot of time travelling in South America for various different outlets, including and beyond Worldly Adventurer.
Over the past three years of living in South America, I’ve:
- Travelled extensively throughout Patagonia three times, including a two-month trip in early 2018.
- Traversed northern and the central Sierra regions Peru for the 2018 editions of the Rough Guide to Peru and the Rough Guide to South America.
- Explored all of Paraguay, also for the 2018 Rough Guide to South America.
- Lived (and volunteered) for a year in Bolivia, spending the final four months of my time visiting practically the entire country.
- Lived (and volunteered) for seven months in Cusco, Peru, with large chunks of time spent in the south of the country.
In the past year, I’ve also:
- Embarked on the research for the 2018 Moon Chile, a guidebook that’ll see me assimilating my knowledge of the country in which I spent the past two and a half years.
It’s fair to say, I know a lot about the continent, making me the ideal South America trip planner to help you pin down an itinerary or help you work out the nitty-gritty details of your next vacation or long-term adventure in South America. Not only have I backpacked extensively across the continent, I’ve also stayed in luxury hotels and taken once-in-a-lifetime tours, meaning I’ve got suggestions for any style and budget of trip.
What I offer with my South America trip planner service
The South America trip planner service involves three steps:
Pre-conversation survey to identify your budget, timing and destination plans
Once I’ve received payment, I’ll send you a quick survey to get a sense of your budget, time restrictions and destination. This will inform the next stage of the South America trip planner service.
A tailored, day-by-day travel itinerary or 30-minute Skype call*
Following the survey, I draw up a detailed itinerary for the duration of your trip, where I include day-by-day recommendations for:
South America itinerary planning – places to visit, those to miss and the best destinations to suit your travel budget and timeframes.
Transport recommendations – which routes to take, recommended bus companies and car rental companies, how to book transport in advance and how to get from A to B.
Hotel, restaurant and other in-destination recommendations – best places to stay within your budget, top restaurants in a destination and other unmissable activities to do.
Logistics and travel essentials help – everything you need to know about travel essentials, including visas, money, border crossings and whether it’s necessary to know the local language.
Tips for seeing 2018’s hottest destinations – travel expert tips on how to experience unmissable places in the continent.
Beyond-the-beaten-trail travel suggestions – my speciality: unique places you’ve never heard of, many of which have yet to make it onto Worldly Adventurer.
*If you only have a handful of queries and don’t require a complete travel itinerary, we can instead organise a 30-minute Skype conversation where I can help you to address any issues you have with you upcoming trip to South America.
Two follow-up emails to resolve any queries
Once you’ve received your personalised travel itinerary, I’ll respond to two emails with further information to help resolve any queries that you may have about what I have suggested.
30-minute Skype call for basic queries: $100 USD
Travel itinerary for a South America vacation of up to, and including, seven days: $150 USD

How to receive your South America travel itinerary
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the duration of your trip and I’ll respond within 48 hours with payment details. Following this, I will send you the pre-conversation travel survey and you will receive your travel itinerary within seven days.
Note that this South America trip planning service is only offered at the moment for Chile, Patagonia and Peru as these are the countries I have explored in enough depth to be able to guarantee you a top-quality planning service. If you’re seeking advice for Bolivia or Paraguay, contact me and we can discuss a special service.
