My only disappointment was the transfer at the end of the tour. No one picked us up and I had to get a taxi to the airport. I want reimbursement for the transfer fees we paid. Our tour guide was perfect but the local guide handling our transfer in Santiago, Chile was not!
Sheraton hotels need updating and free wifi in the rooms. Only one tour didn't meet description of "spend afternoon" at the Brazil side of Iguazu Falls where we only had 1 1/2 hr because of connecting flight with 3 hr layover. Very good tour.
I LOVED THE DAYS "OFF" WHERE INSTEAD OF OPTIONAL TOURS WE HAD THE TIME TO VISIT MUSEUMS, ART GALLERIES AND HOT SECTIONS OF THE DIFFERENT CITIES. I WAS SURPRISED THAT NOBODY ELSE TOOK THIS OPPORTUNITY AND WENT TO OPTIONAL=MORE OF THE SAME= EXCURSIONS. I BOOKED 2 EXTRA TOURS BY GRAY TOURS AS THEY WERE CHEAPER OR MORE INTERESTING THAN OFFERED BY GLOBUS.
