Get out there and in touch with the locals Are you an Adventure Tour traveller?
You want to involve yourself not only with the Latino culture, but also with the entire experience of travelling through the lands. You envisage sitting next to locals on buses, wandering through marketplaces, trying local restaurants and generally exploring the area. You might have travelled independently in the past but a tour in Latin America appeals to you because you may not be fluent in the local language and want to learn more about the destination. You don't want to spend much time in your hotels but you want to stay somewhere clean, comfortable and centrally located so you can go off and do your own thing. You like having a smaller group to travel with. Group & Leaders - Usually 8-12 travellers, max 18; Tucan Tour Leader, Tucan Guides, Local Guides & Local Reps Accommodation - Centrally located hotels, and some jungle lodges and family stays Transport - Local transport Age Group - Recommended 18-60 Included Meals - All meals in the Amazon Jungle and on the Inca Trail [Read more about Tucan travel styles]
