Our itineraries are cleverly designed with the appropriate balance of inclusions, must-see sights and free time all planned to unlock South America's richness and vibrancy. Many different kinds of people travel with us and, like you, they recognise that value is not only about price but also what’s included in a tour and cruise.

Our inclusions bring to life the South America you’ve always imagined. We know you’ll never forget the moment you first laid eyes on mystical Machu Picchu, the excitement you felt when you stood up close to the thunderous falls of Iguazú, or the unforgettable feeling as you arrive at a stunning and pristine location with exquisite natural beauty such as the Galápagos Islands or the Amazon. Each one is a unique, unsurpassed gem and an included premium highlight with Evergreen that makes your tour complete. With 38 years experience Evergreen are specialists in touring and we aim to bring you real life experiences and reveal hidden gems of South America.

You're Invited

Let us take you on a journey into hidden parts of South America that only the experts know how to find. Evergreen Tours has included unique and exclusive experiences where our guests are welcomed into the lives of local people. Come home with a knowledge and affection for South America far deeper than a museum or iconic landmark can offer.

In Peru's Sacred Valley, visit a local community and meet the people who have inherited the traditional ways of the Inca. Visit their school where the smiles of the children will melt your heart. This experience, unique to Evergreen, will remain with you long after you return home.

In Rio, get to know how the locals party with a visit to the Sambadrome, the site of the famous Rio Carnival. Once a year the locals in Rio embark on a four day party filled with parades, costumes, music and dance. The Sambadrome is the centre of it all and the costumes are an integral part. We take you there and you'll try on carnival costumes like a local.

In Argentina's beautiful countryside we take you to a traditional ranch or "estancia" where you will learn about the "gauchos" or cowboys of Argentina who are integral to the culture. Argentina is predominantly a rural country whose people grew up on the land. The "gaucho" culture developed as an important part of Argentina's makeup and the best way to experience and learn about this is by staying on an estancia. No other tour will bring you as close to Argentinian culture.

"You’re Invited" experiences allow you to connect with real people and participate in special events to discover a hidden side of the destination. Evergreen has hand-picked experiences that will enrich your time and deepen your understanding of the places you visit.
