Solo & Group Travel Tours

Solo Travel: It's not always easy to co-ordinate a friend or a loved one to travel with you, but that does not mean you can't make your travel dreams come true. Travelling solo gives you the ultimate freedom to seek out destinations you are passionate about and travel in a style that is completely tailored to yours truly. With the Chimu travel model you don't have to travel completely alone, unless you want to. We can tailor a journey for you to meet other like minded travellers when visiting the highlights of each destination whilst allowing you the freedom to choose where you will stay and how long for. You will be looked after from the minute you arrive in your destination whilst also giving you the freedom to explore the way you want to without the shackles of a group or uninterested friends.
 
On our expedition cruises plus a number of set itineraries we can also match you up with another solo traveller to help avoid single supplements costs.
 
Group Travel: Whether you are planning a trip for a sporting group, a large family holiday, a cooking expedition or a bird watching soirée, organising a group tour of South America or Antarctica can be overwhelming. Given the diversity of each location in terms of history, culture, climate and excursions, to really make it work, you need the help of an expert.
 
With our own operations in Latin America and all of our well travelled staff talking about Latin America and Antarctica all day every day, you are in good hands. We really are group travel experts. We will help you with everything, from designing the right itinerary to suit your group to discussing the itinerary personally with your group. We will liaise with our ground handlers to ensure every item is fully understood and your group’s expectations are met. We can even create quotes with your group logo on it to give it that personal touch.
 
A large majority of our itineraries are already fully flexible, so customising tours is second nature to our staff. We also work with a number of set departures that can cater for large groups so organising group travel to Latin America and Antarctica is easy for us. All you need to do is get the ball rolling.

Solo & Group Travel Tours

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to travel solo but I’m not sure what my options are ?

There are several options for solo travellers. Joining a small group tour or an expedition cruise is a great option, one that gives you the chance to share your journey and experiences with like-minded travellers, and maybe access places in Latin America that may be hard to visit by yourself. It can also be a means of avoiding costly single supplements. Another option is that we can organise a tour for you on your own giving you complete flexibility to travel where you want, stay as long as you want and include activities and excursions that interest you. You could choose to incorporate some excursions on a shared basis to make the tour more cost effective. 

What does a small group tour include?

Our small group tours are very inclusive. Our Overland Expeditions are fully escorted tours that travel by road in custom-built expedition vehicles with a maximum group size of 16. Our Discovery Tours are escorted tours that travel by plane, train, private vehicle, bus and boat with a maximum group size of 20. All of our small group tours include tour leaders, local guides at various sites, transport, good quality tourist class accommodation, many meals and all of the main sightseeing and excursions.

Is there a Local Payment?

There are no Local Payments on our tours.

What are other travellers like on a group tour?

Group tours tend to attract like-minded travellers of a variety of ages, who are all looking to explore Latin America in a fun and exciting way, with the added security of travelling in a group.

What facilities does the Overland Truck include ?

The Overland Trucks are custom-built, all-terrain expedition vehicles. They include many modern on board facilities including filtered drinking water, library, fridge, sound system, heating and cooling, toilet, comfortable reclining coach seats and large panoramic windows to optimise viewing. The vehicle is also fitted with spacious compartments for luggage storage and under seat storage for day packs. 

I’m a solo traveller, will I have to pay a single traveller supplement for a group tour?

You can either pay a single supplement to have your own hotel room or cabin each night, or you can choose to share a room with another solo traveller of the same sex and therefore not pay a single traveller supplement.

How long are group tours?

Our group tours range from 7 days to 42 days.

What countries do the group tours cover?

Our group tours cover not only South and Central America but we also offer a range of cruises that you can join to Antarctica and the Arctic. In South America we offer tours to Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and Ecuador as well as Patagonia, the Amazon and the Galapagos. In Central America we cover Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Belize as well as Cuba. We also have multi-country itineraries.  

What are the most popular group tours?

Our most popular Overland Tours are Wild Patagonia and Southern Explorer. Our most popular Discovery Tours are Enchanting South America and Colours of Peru.
