Why book with IDEAS?

Local Presence

We are natives of South America in business since 2004. You will be dealing directly with a local South American Company from start to finish. We are not like so many travel brokers who live abroad, sell you the trip and then hand you off to another local company once you arrive.

Local Knowledge
& Expertise

While information is becoming more accessible via the Internet, local knowledge and expertise are irreplaceable. With over 15 years of experience, our personal relationships with leading travel suppliers such as hotels, lodges, wineries has enabled us to connect our clients with unique travel opportunities.

Planning is Easy
and Enjoyable

Planning a vacation can be overwhelming, but we are here to make the process easy and enjoyable. Whether you are simply looking for expert advice or want to plan the perfect family trip, honeymoon, or other type of travel, our talented travel designers have the knowledge, tools and resources to create a trip of a lifetime.

Carefully Crafted
Tailor-Made Journeys

We have the best connections in every destination, opening to our clients a whole range of options available that an outsider would never know. We will help you with hotel selection, guides, self-drive trips, culinary tours, active trips, art tours, high-end trips, honeymoons, family adventures or other types of travel.

The Best
Professional Guides

A memorable trip is only as good as the guide, and we know it. We have a reputation for offering private tours with the very best engaging and knowledgeable guides with the same level of excellence in every destination.

The app that adds wow

Our clients use our mobile application from the beginning to the end of their trip. During this time, we provide them with all the information and travel support they need. Also, our clients have their travel documents, get real-time flight alerts and live updates in their cell phones, elevating their travel experience.

Some of the features of our App include:

• Trip itineraries;
• Updated information about your destination;
• Real-time flight alerts and live updates;
• Airports and airlines COVID-19 measures;
• Local mapping, with points of interest;
• Messaging;
• Your own digital diary;
• Hotel directory;
• Ability to set your ‘Do-Not-Disturb’ status;
• Daily activities list.
• Group chat feature (chat wall, chat with tour leader, one-on-one chat)

… all available offline. This means you don’t have to connect to the local mobile network (which can be expensive), or connect to WiFI (which isn’t always available).
