Find hidden gems with Latin America Group Tours

LATIN America Group Tours is passionate about its beautiful part of the world and is waiting to introduce you to its many wonders.

Horacio and Stella Passeggi came to Australia 18 years ago from Uruguay in South America where he was head of Nissan and she was involved in organising tours for employees, customers and dealers who wanted to visit the Nissan factories in Mexico, Spain and Japan.

Moving across to the travel industry was a natural process, especially given their love of travel which they always organised for themselves. Nothing like experience for discovering and solving difficulties!

They love the satisfaction of giving their passengers the "genuine article" - helping them experience the real Latin America and revealing all its hidden gems. Their clients don't just visit a country. They experience the real life there.

The Passeggis' favourite destination is Rio de Janeiro. They love its great food, weather, friendly locals, caipirinha (Brazil's traditional drink) and the best music. No wonder they return so often!

But Rio is just one of the fabulous places to go. Latin America Group Tours specialise in every destination from Mexico down through Central America into South America. Their tours offer the most comprehensive combination of value for money, authentic activities and excellent service.

Main destinations are Peru, Argentina and Brazil in South America; and Mexico, Guatemala and Cuba in North and Central America. If you have only three or four weeks, these are the places to go.

Horaccio and Stella specialise in escorted groups but people can ask them to design their own itineraries. They often have passengers for a full or a segment of a tour who then branch out onto specific personal interests, such as wild life, textiles, golf etc. They pride themselves on their flexibility.

Local guides are carefully selected, especially those with indigenous ancestry.

These are the experts who can give you more insights into their culture and can take you to special places, festivities and religious celebrations not covered by the conventional tourist trade.

Customers claim it's like going on your own with the advantage of having someone with you who knows the language and culture, so your issues are resolved and all the planning is done.

To experience the delights of Latin America with that special personal touch, contact Horacio and Stella on 5492 5374 or visit their website: You can also say hello at the Toowoomba U3A expo.
