Overall, we couldn't fault the service or the package that Latin Discover put together. Considering we were purchasing from Australia we took a bit of a risk but it all worked out tremendously, exceeding our expectations.

I had been looking into information on self-drive tours of the Lake District of Chile; Latindiscover's website had the best layout, photos, and ease of navigation. It was their website that prompted me to contact them over other travel agencies. KL Cripe Rauser

We had a wonderful time in Chile. The packages were supplied as promised and the goodies in it, e.g. hotels, etc., exceeded our expectations in several cases. We will certainly recommend Latin Discover for travelling in South America.
