Accommodation (South America)

We use a range of accommodation during your tour to enhance your experience in South America, selected for convenience of location, comfort or character, and can range from business hotels to rainforest lodges. All group tour hotels have private bathroom facilities and air conditioning where needed. If you experience any difficulty, please speak to your National Escort. Rest assured that all hotels used by Wendy Wu Tours are regularly inspected by our staff and our partners to ensure that standards meet your needs.



All group tour hotels are mainly local three to four-star standard and located conveniently in the city, or near markets or shops. All rooms will have private bathroom facilities, television, air conditioning and a telephone. If an in-room safety deposit box is not provided, please use the security boxes at reception. Usually check out time is 12 midday and check in time is 2pm. Please keep this in mind on the days when you are travelling between cities as it may result in a delay of access to your room, or a change of itinerary. Delays due to previous night’s guests are out of our control. Hotels cannot guarantee late checkout.

Double beds are subject to hotel inventory and cannot be guaranteed.

Hotel List - You will receive your hotel list with final documents sent to you 2-3 weeks prior to travel. A sample list of hotels can be found on each tour's website. 

Hotel Ratings

Countries throughout the world adopt various classification systems for hotels in accordance to their chain name and the type of hotel. No international classification system exists. Typically,
a three-star South American rated hotel cannot be compared to a three-star Australian rated hotel. Attempts at unifying the classification system have been made so that it becomes an internationally recognised and reliable standard. However, differences do exist in the quality of accommodation which plays an integral part in defining which hotel category the specific accommodation fits into. Please be advised that all hotels used by Wendy Wu Tours are regularly inspected by our staff and our partners so that a good standard of quality and safety are maintained.
