If you are new to South America Odyssey you may wonder how we are different from all the other companies promising the same, or a similar, type of service. It is not our way to blow our own trumpet as we rely on past clients to do that for us. We are different to the many companies out there because:

100% TRIPS TAILORED TO YOU: We design holidays that are 100% tailored to you, and absolutely nothing is "off the shelf". It is our knowledge of the areas we focus on, our long term contacts, our experience and our know how that enables us to design and execute better trips.

We are here to check you in for your fligths, recommend and make restaurant reservations, and deal with any and every eventuality- all you need to do is enjoy your holiday.

INDEPENDENTLY OWNED & MANAGED: We are a privately run company owned by the original founders. They set a very high standard in everything we do and encourge travel at every opportunity! It is their experience and our passion for the areas that we design holidays too that makes us very different. To us, it's much more than a job.

WE CONTINUALLY DELIVER EXCEPTIONAL HOLIDAYS: As a boutique company we do not have a huge marketing budget, so we do everything to ensure that your holiday is truly exceptional. Hopefully you return and tell all your friends about Odyssey Travels.

NO OBLIGATION OR PRESSURE TO BOOK: Please do feel free to give us a call or ping us an email for a friendly chat about an area that you are interested in visiting. If you like the sound of what we do and would like an itinerary, perfect. If you are still unsure and need time to think about what you want to do, that's also fine. Your trip is much more than a lousy sales target. We care about what we do, and we will proudly never be pushy.
