Tucan Travel has introduced three new counties to its Budget Expeditions (18-35s) group tours.
With unique cultures and a distinct Caribbean vibe compared to the rest of South America, the operator sees Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana as up-and-coming regions in South America, far off the beaten track and away from the tourist trail. To access these regions, travellers need to join a group tour in Quito, Bogota or Caracas for a minimum of 35 days.
The company currently runs the longest group tour for young people in South America, a 199-day Gran Aventura, and says that it is now the first to run a group tour specifically for young people where clients have the opportunity to visit every country on the South America mainland.
As examples, a 72-day Colombia to Carnival itinerary, which travels from Bogota to Rio de Janeiro, leads in at £2,899 plus a local payment, while a 35-day Guianas Explorer option, which travels from Caracas to Recidde, costs from £1,299 plus a local payment.
The release of the new tours and the incorporation of Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana coincides with the operator's 28th birthday and, to celebrate, the company is offering up to 30% on all Budget Expedition tours booked.
