Amazon Adventures

Amazon Adventures offer classic tours and active adventures in South America


We have been in business since 1993 and have evolved into specializing in the areas that we love – classic tours and active adventures in South and Central America.

We have been featured in International Travel News, National Geographic Adventures, Brandt Guides, Fodors, USA Today and Frommers, among others. Recommended by Simonseeks – travel guides and holiday reviews.

Though we offer the typical, well-known tours in each area, we also try to offer you exciting options that you just won’t find from your local travel agent – exciting, “different” tours that you will truly remember for the rest of your life. We are always trying to introduce new options to exciting off-the-beaten path places that haven’t become mainstream destinations yet and we’re trying to offer more chances to meet with the locals and experience their culture firsthand, instead of through the window of a tour bus. Instead of quoting with big international hotel chains (though we can do that if you prefer) that big tour groups use, we prefer to quote with smaller hotels that have more local character.

Though we do work with some American tour operators, we often try to work directly with local tour operators in each country so that we can offer you the best prices and more frequent services. We try to attend the annual conferences in each region to meet with the local operators to see what is new and exciting. When you contact most agencies, you talk to someone who is new or has only worked their for a few years – there is a big turnover in the business. But when you contact us, you deal with someone who has specialized in these countries for over 18 years. In fact, when people contact some of our operators directly, they refer them to us.

We invite you to browse our site for South America tours. You will find classic tours and active adventure travel. Enjoy the famous sites, as well as little-known jewels waiting to be discovered. ​We list many sample itineraries, but can build a custom itinerary to suit your interests, so just ask us if you don\’t see exactly what you want and we will give you a quote.
