Marion Bunnik, founder and product director of Bunnik Tours, will be escorting two small group tours throughout South and Central America in 2018.

“The itineraries that I have chosen venture a little off the beaten tourist trail but take in some of the world’s most pristine and breath-taking sights, scenery and wildlife, and venture into small local villages to gain a real insight into each country’s culture,” Bunnik said.

Her first small group tour will be a 26-day Ultimate Chile & Argentina journey. Guests will depart Australia on 16 January 2018 and arrive in Chile’s capital Santiago. The tour includes a visit to the Atacama Desert, the Chilean fjords, thermal hot springs and a night in a luxury treehouse in the Patagonian rainforest. A highlight of this tour is a visit to the Casa de la Mujer Mapuche near Pucon, Chile. Prices start at $18,815pp, including return international airfares, five flights within South America, air taxes, tipping and transfers.
