Staying in clean and comfortable 3* hotels and using public transport, Tucan Travel have added 14 new group tours to their range of Adventure Tours in South America.
Starting in Quito and finishing in Buenos Aires 48 days later, these group tours, or sections of them, cover all of the main highlights the regions have to offer with flights between many destinations speeding up the travel times and allowing travellers to make the most of each day of their tour.
Matt Gannan, CEO of Tucan Travel, is quoted, “Last year we launched a range of Adventure Tours aimed at travellers who want to see as much as possible in a short period of time. These 14 new group tours are a result of their success and we are excited to be growing this concept in such a big way.”
Two of the new Adventure Tours now allow you to travel from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro or in the opposite direction in just nine days. The group tour flies from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls after a day trip into Uraguay and flies again from Iguazu Falls to Paraty where there is time for two nights in the colonial town before arriving in Rio de Janeiro.
