Refined, simplified, perfected: Chimu Adventures refreshes South America itineraries

Chimu Adventures has given its entire South America product offering a makeover to fit under its newly launched Signature style - a range of premium itineraries that highlight the best of each region.

Chimu Adventures has given its entire South America product offering a makeover to fit under its newly launched Signature style – a range of premium itineraries that highlight the best of each region.

Chimu says its flexible new Signature South America itineraries have been refined, simplified, and perfected by the team over the last eight months, offering the best possible customer travel experience.

Despite the pandemic, Chimu was able to retain all of its Destination Specialists, each with an average of five years’ experience in designing South America travel itineraries.

Closed borders presented opportunities for the team to brainstorm ideas, collaborate with Chimu’s local offices in South America, and assess previous sales data.

From this, the concept of the brand-new Signature South America itineraries was born.

Chimu’s new core range has been carefully designed to make planning an upmarket South American adventure easy.

Travellers simply select from one of Chimu’s six Signature South America itineraries (Machu Picchu, Galapagos, Patagonia, Buenos Aires to Rio, Salt Flats or the full South American Circle) and can tailor their itinerary with extensions, such as a Lake Titicaca ExtensionAmazon River Cruising and Signature Peru, before or after their tour to create a more in-depth experience.

To provide the best possible trip for travellers, Chimu says it has gone against the grain when planning day tours, ensuring guests visit popular destinations at different times of day than other tour operators.

This reduces the impact of mass tourism and delivers a more authentic and meaningful experience in each place.

Departure dates are chosen by guests, with departures guaranteed.

“We have taken into consideration what the vast majority of our travellers have booked over past few decades, the itinerary highlights that have brought the most joy and the most effective way of traversing this enormous continent without joining a group tour,” said Product Manager Ben Goschnick.

LATAM Airlines resumed service from Sydney to Santiago via Auckland in late March, with more routes coming soon, and the continent is ready to welcome back visitors.

“Having just returned from my first trip to South America since 2020, it was very exciting to spend some more time in some of our signature hotels, prior to our clients starting to arrive. I can confidently report that they are operating as normal and ready for Australians to start arriving”, reported Chimu Adventures Co-Founder Chad Carey.
