LATIN AMERICAN SPECIALISTS
We are an independent, Australian-owned, boutique tour operator specialising exclusively in travel to Latin America – South America, Central America, Mexico, Cuba and Antarctica. We can’t tell you about river-cruising in Europe, or wildlife safaris in Africa. But we can definitely tell you the best time of year to see the mating dance of the waved albatross, or why you’ll want to wear yellow to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Cuzco. We really do know Latin America by heart.
We’ve been creating unique Latin American holidays since 1975 and are Australia’s longest-running South American travel specialist. Moreover, our 45 years’ of experience means we’ve dealt with every imaginable eventuality but have never failed to provide the highest level of care for our clients. Repeat business is an important measure of our success and we are proud to have many clients who have travelled multiple times with us to this wonderful region

But don’t just take our word for it! We have hundreds of testimonials from clients and agents who vouch for us.
"I recently booked an amazing 8-week multi-country itinerary for 2 of my clients. What they wanted was a little off the grid and Heather from Contours did a fabulous job. She ticked all the boxes making sure their needs were met and answer any questions before they arose. Which for a travel agent is absolute gold."
"We would like to formally acknowledge the support and service that Brett provided during our recent holiday to Argentina and Chile that was disrupted by the COVID 19 pandemic. Brett made himself available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and demonstrated outstanding professionalism and true compassion considering the situation we were all placed in."
"The trip was wonderful, and we all agreed that there were many highlights. We would like you to know how impressed we were with all of the Contours Team, they never missed a beat, everything was totally smooth sailing and that is because of all of your great organising skills and the team on the ground couldn’t be more helpful & happy."
