The Travel Experts



We’ve been in the destination experience “business” for over 20 years in Latin America, our two main offices are in Argentina & Peru, but our regional offices are made up of a small and efficient satellite team of local destination experts in Costa Rica, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia…and as of August 2020 Ecuador & Galapagos. Class Adventure Travel operates trips wholesale for many large tour operators in both Europe, the UK and the USA. Why play the telephone game with a “Walmart” type tour operator, when you can work directly with our teams in Latin America?

Our experience gives you the confidence that your trip will run like clockwork, when things take a turn, we take the wheel and we pick you back up with a routed detour. Over the years we’ve developed the acumen necessary to do so, and while coronavirus has turned the world upside down, we’ve taken this time to refine our experiences in ways to create the comfort zones and precautions necessary to enjoy each of our experiences with your safety in mind. .

Your tour may depart any day of the year, and tailored to explore beyond any destination offered on our website.

Looking forward…

Why Choose Class Adventure Travel?

Amita Guha
from the United States to Brazil, Argentina & Peru
Dear CAT Travel, Thank you for a superb vacation in Brazil, Argentina and Peru. I had weeks of discussions before finalizing our trip and your suggestions and tips were invaluable and helped me plan the perfect trip. I am really happy with CAT for their flexibility regarding length of stay at each place and choice of hotels and tours. Montserrat did an excellent job of having the travel details and vouchers ready at every step of our trip. The arrangements were flawless. We were met at every airport by a well informed and courteous guide and the tours were mostly private ones or in very small groups of 2 or 3 families which was really nice as we got some company. One of our tours in Argentina got cancelled but Montserrat immediately arranged for a substitute tour and a very special dinner in Peru! We were very happy with the hotels we stayed at. All were in excellent locations which we had selected after suggestions. The Archeologo hotel in Cusco and Pakaritampu in Ollantaytambo were really charming. My husband was really impressed by the fabulous holiday I had arranged for his retirement gift.  Thank you CAT! Amita Guha
Annalena Burbridge
from the USA to Argentina
Dear CAT Travel, We had a most wonderful time in Argentina. Working with Marcos was a real joy.  He proved to be very helpful and knowledgeable about his product and services.  All the transfers were executed punctually with friendly and professional staff.  The tours for the most part were excellent, depending on the guide, their overall knowledge, delivery and fluency in the English language. The hotels were all very clean, comfortable, and for the most part in good locations in respect to the center of town.  I can honestly say that it was a once in a lifetime trip and our best travel experience. It is a really wonderful travel destination, we loved, loved,loved Argentina! Annalena Burbridge
Choy Ping & Anne
from Singapore to Brazil & Peru
Dear Sarah & JP, Thank you for arranging such a wonderful itinerary for us. We enjoyed the tour very much especially the good hotels, wonderful guides you have assigned at each destination for us and the special lunches included in the sacred valley and Machu Picchu. The transitions from places to places were great and we did not have to worry about anything as we knew there would definitely be somebody there to meet us. A thoughtful itinerary indeed. Thanks! We were also impressed that the representative make special arrangement for our luggage to be delivered right away when there was a slight hiccup in getting to the hotel the day when we arrived at Cusco. Not only we received our luggage on the same night, our assistant, Rossie, apologised profusely for the hiccup and gave us each a box of candy for compensation. We weren't even upset but it goes to show how much your company value your excellent services. Thanks again! We would definitely recommend our friends of the great service your travel company provides. Warm regards, CP
Christella & Gloria Ritchwood
from the United States to Peru
Dear Marc, My mother and I just returned from Peru and we had a fabulous time! I have travelled many places and I have to say it was the most amazing trip I have taken. The staff at the hotel in Cusco were especially nice. We enjoyed (and needed!) the hot water bottles in our beds every evening. They gave us some great recommendations of places to eat and visit while in Peru. The itinerary couldn't have been planned any better. The tour guides were very professional and informative. Our guides were on time to pick us up and explain our day. We didn't have to worry about anything. I look forward to traveling with CAT in the future. Thank you for creating such a great package! Peru is a beautiful place to visit! Christella and Gloria Ritchwood, U.S.A.

Nothing like pura vida, tropical beaches and volcanoes in the distance to make an impression. Since then she’s fallen even more deeply in love with the region by traveling to Peru, Brazil and Panama to visit friends. Now,soaking up the glorious food and culture of Buenos Aires has also given her the chance to further her travels in South America. Latin America is where her heart is and she loves sharing that passion with CAT clients.
