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:
- 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.
- Travelled extensively throughout Patagonia three times, including a two-month trip in early 2018.
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’ve spent the past two 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
I’ll send you a quick survey to get a sense of your budget, time restrictions and destination ideas, as well as the type of trip you want to take. This will inform the next stage of the South America trip planner service.
A 30-minute or one-hour Skype call** or one- or two-page travel plan and itinerary
Following the survey, we can have a 30-minute or one-hour Skype call where I can make recommendations on:
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.
One follow-up email to resolve any queries
Following our call, I’ll respond to one email with further information to help resolve any queries that you may have about what we discussed in the call/what was written in the planning document.
30-minute Skype call or one-page travel planning document: $150 USD
1-hour Skype call or two-page travel planning document: $250 USD
How to arrange your South America trip planner call
Contact me at [email protected] indicating whether you would like a 30 minute or one hour Skype call and I’ll respond within 48 hours with the pre-conversation travel survey and a couple of suggestions of times for us to schedule our call.
*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.
**Due to my schedule, which sees me travelling off-grid for long periods of time, it may not always be possible to arrange a Skype conversation. In this case, I can offer a one- or two-page document outlining my suggestions instead.
