Best Of Peru, Argentina And Brazil
Just finished my tour to South America through Indus Travels. I had never traveled with Indus before so I didn't know what to expect. I have to say that they exceeded my expectations on everything. When I was doing my research for this trip, I didn't see much on Trip Advisor on others that traveled with Indus. So if anyone has questions about my trip, I'd be happy to respond. Indus Travels covered all cost of park/museum/airport porter fees.
