Wendy Wu has launched its first dedicated collection of escorted group tours and tailor made holidays in South America.

Following the success of its first South America tour, launched two years ago, the operator has successively sold out on all subsequent departures prompting the demand for a new dedicated programme.

John Warr, the company’s global sales director, said: “South America is a key venture for Wendy Wu representing the first time we have launched a major new programme of holidays in a continent outside of Asia. This new collection has been in the making for two years and quite simply offers the very best in South America travel and experiences, all founded in the quality, expertise and knowledge that makes a Wendy Wu holiday and which agents have come to expect.

“We’ve taken our time here as it was vital that we found the very same superior quality of travel experiences and tour guides in South America that we have become known for in Asia. We’re excited to say that we’ve achieved just that.”

As an example of itineraries, the 18-day ‘Panoramic Peru’ starts from £3,790 per person and is designed for those wanting to discover the heart of the Inca Empire at Machu Picchu. Highlights include a panoramic Vistadome train through the mountainous landscapes before embarking on the ascent to Machu Picchu. A cruise across Lake Titicaca also transports guests to the Islas Uros, a collection of floating islands constructed entirely from reeds. Here travallers will meet the ancient Uros tribe and learn about their way of life out on the water with a mixture of traditional dancing, cooking and basket weaving. A private yacht will also take guests to the Palomino Islands to spot sea lions, Humboldt penguins and sea birds.

Other holiday highlights from the brochure include ‘Colombia Discovery’, ‘Chile: Top to Toe’, an ‘Argentina Adventure’ and the ‘Essence of Argentina & Brazil’. Clinets can also opt for an exploration of Central America on the ‘Colours of Costa Rica’ or ‘Costa Rica & Panama’ holiday and a full range of extensions and stopovers are available on all trips including a four-day ‘Panama Beach Stay’ from £540 per person and five-day ‘Costa Rica Beach Stay’ from £560.
