From the valleys of Chile to the vast expanses of the Bolivian Altiplano, this is a journey of contrasts through some of the most surreal landscapes on Earth. Soak up the culture of Chile before roughing it a bit in Bolivia. A CEO will make sure you get the most of your tour, but will leave plenty of time for you to do your own thing while local transport will bring you closer to the locals and is a fascinating way to gain insight into the region’s cultures.
