10 Great Reasons

About SouthAmerica.travel

The idea for SouthAmerica.travel first came to Co-Founders Juergen Keller and Bradley Nehring in 1999 while traveling through Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest. The two noticed very few international travelers, and those they did meet had struggled to arrange the trip by themselves. Expert, custom travel planning to Brazil was scarce – nearly nonexistent at the time. This inspired the duo to fill the void and help travelers plan incredible customized trips to Brazil. We have grown a lot since then. Now serving all of South America, with five offices on three continents, and with local phone numbers in 88 countries worldwide, the SouthAmerica.travel Team has helped thousands of travelers fulfill their dream of discovering the marvelous and diverse continent of South America.
