Too good to miss
Here is news of a cruise which embraces Chile, Colombia, the Caribbean and a boutique SeaDream 11 cruise up the Amazon River.  Business Class airfares ex Sydney  for two nights each  at Santiago, Bogota and colonial Zipaquira.  Then there is a two night stay in Barbados.  Five star, or best available accommodation.
Even an excursion to Machu Picchu aboard the luxury Orient Express.   All with organised sightseeing.  This has to be a trip of a life time. Best thing is to arrange a chat with those in the know. Go visit  Personally. I would be inclined to telephone the escorts of the package, namely  Martin and Auriel Wright, the founders of Far Horizons.  Ring 1800 083 141.  Please do yourself a favour and get a fully-detailed itinerary. Conditions apply.
Then let the journey begin !
