Q. My wife and I are planning a trip to South America and would like to take in some of the sights of Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and possibly Colombia. We would be happy to travel alone or in a small group. Would this be feasible on a budget of £10,000 for the two of us? When is the best time of year to travel?

A. An escorted tour of all these countries is out of reach on this budget, but you could try Insider Places (, a new travel company that puts holidaymakers in touch with local travel agents with the promise of better-value trips (and has ABTA bonding, so your money is protected). A 23-night Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina trip would cost about £7,700 for two including mid-range hotels, excursions, transfers, some meals and internal flights. International flights cost about £700 extra and if you wanted to tack on six nights in Colombia, then that would cost about £600pp, taking you to just over £10,000. As to when’s best to go – avoid June, July and August because it’s winter in Argentina and Chile and the Andes will be very cold, while Peru is rainy in January and February.
