We are an enthusiastic, independently owned tour operator, specializing in South America and Antarctica tours. Our vision is to be a market leader in tourism within the region, while still investing in local communities. We have intimate knowledge of the region and it's culture. We are different as we have lived, worked and called this beautiful continent home.

We believe in providing the highest quality tours without the expense of call centers or pricey advertising campaigns. By dealing direct with the public we have no middleman, so your money goes towards your tour not our marketing costs. Unlike many other operators, we have never canceled a tour. Tours will go ahead irrespective of group numbers. Visit our tours page or see below for a list of our tours to Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Antarctica the Galapagos and beyond! We can organize anything from the traditional 4 day Inca trail, a luxury tour to a 2 month expedition.

We support sustainable tourism and work with NGO's in Peru and other countries to help further develop vital infrastructure for small communities. We believe in community trade and work with small independent hotels and businesses, which provide all of our needs on tour.
Questions and Answers
We are a socially-responsible company that prides itself on knowing this wonderful continent inside-out and providing you with YOUR customized tour to Latin America or Antarctica!

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

In the early 2000s, good friends Chad and Greg shared a passion fo everything Latin and a frustration over the inflexibility and lack of value in the travel models available to visitors to Latin America at the time. Over a few beers at a boat race, whilst in London, they decided it was time to do something about it. And so, back home in Australia in 2004, with a third hand lap top, a big idea and a business plan, Chimu Adventures was born.

2. What is your company's mission?

We want to bring a product to the travel industry that didnt pigeon hole the traveller into a set itinerary. Instead offer them options based on real first hand knowledge, combined with the flexibility to suit their needs, without costing a fortune!

3. What does your company specialize in?

Customized Travel to Latin America and Antarctica

4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

Good friends Chad Carey and Greg Carter shared a passion for Latin American Travel, since they were working in the travel industry for many years as well as traveling to that part of the world and started up a company offering customized trips to Latin America and Antartica.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

Most popular would be Peru, especially seeing Machu Picchu, Argentina and Brazil as well as a trip to amazing Antarcica.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

We often hear that clients did the trip of their lifetime with us, especially when going to Antarctica!

 1  Tony Schlenker Peru, Bolivia and Chile Tour! 2007-08-18
Chimu Adventures organized our recent tour of Chile, Bolivia and Peru to perfection. Our guides were all friendly, informative and competent and our drivers ... view more careful, helpful and professional. A sensational month was spent touring and sampling some of the spectacular sights of the three countries. The Custom Tour provided our party the independence to choose where we wanted to go and what we wanted to experience. I would recommend Chimu to everyone

 2  Kathryn Whyte Amazon and Andes tour with Chimu Adventures 2007-08-18
Just a (belated) message to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Peru. We really enjoyed our week in the Amazon; we were lucky enough to see many ... view more animals (including a Jaguar, and a 5m anaconda at very close range) and this was mainly due to the sharp eyes and extraordinary knowledge of our guide, Nicolas. The Inca trail was also fabulous. We joined a great group, and again benefited from the knowledge of excellent guides.Throughout the trips, the meals and service provided were fantastic. All in all, a fabulous holiday. Thanks very much for organizing everything, we had a great time

 3  Bett Anne Inca tour with Chimu Adventures 2007-08-18
The trip to Peru was fabulous. Your organization did a great job and everything worked out as it should. All of the transfers, pick-ups etc were perfect. That ... view more makes a big difference when you are traveling as a rather large family. The hike was spectacular. The guide was superb.

Everything was absolutely first class from the moment we arrived at ... view more Cusco Airport to the time we left Puno airport. You were always there to meet us on time and the people were always friendly and helpful. We really had a special time and would and have already recommended yourselves.I am also now an engaged man having proposed to my partner at the end of a 1 hour hike up wayna picchu. It was all worth it

 5  Helen lowe Peru trip! 2007-08-18
