We paid the tax in Santiago with credit card. Our trip was one of  best we have experienced. A great deal of this is due to our outstanding Program Director, Emiliano Rio. This man loves his job and shareing his country and Chile with GCT travelers. The pace of the program was excellent and lots of included events. My hat is off to GCT for the excellance of the trip and value given. Don't miss this one.

Thanks for the positive review of the Chile/Argentina tour.  This is one we are planning to take.  When did you go and how was the weather?   We usually travel with OAT, but I like the GCT itinerary better.  Did you do the pre-trip to Machu Pichu?

We did this trip in May, 2009 and it's a great trip.  The highlights for us were the pre and post trip.  Cuzco and Machu Picchu are unbelievable.  Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful city we have ever visited.  Iguassu Falls (views from both Argentina and Brazil side) is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.
