From the iconic to the unexpected, we connect you to the warmth of South and Central America, Mexico and then across to the icy glaciers of our brand new exploration in Antarctica. You'll be immersed in the real essence of these diverse continents like no other. It’s meeting llamas and alpacas at Awanakancha, a living museum of the Peruvian Andes, en route to the Sacred Valley. It’s selecting the very best fruits and seafood from a local market in Lima with young chef, Ignacio Barrios. It’s celebrating Chile’s proud wine-making tradition with an exclusive tasting at Casablanca Valley. It’s dancing Samba with the locals in Rio de Janeiro, getting splashed by the mighty Iguassu Falls, or a moment of pure bliss at Copacabana Beach. It might just be a minute, an hour, a day - we bring you those 'pinch-me' moments that will change the way you see the world forever. Join us, discover the real thing and live The Good Life.

Tip

"Our Peru programs are designed to alleviate possible altitude sickness by traveling from lower to higher elevation as the program progresses. If you feel the effects of higher elevations try the mate de coca (Coca Tea) used for thousands of years by the indigenous people in South America, especially in the Andes mountains. So simple, so effective and natural."

ARRIVE BUENOS AIRES (2 NIGHTS) It's time to Tango your way through beautiful Buenos Aires— your launch pad to the other-worldly southern frontier of Patagonia. On arrival, your local host will welcome you and transfer you to your hotel. Relax or explore the grand boulevards and colorful barrios of Argentina's vibrant capital on your own. This evening, join your Travel Director and fellow expeditioners for a Welcome Reception. (WR) Hotel: InterContinental Buenos Aires

Moreno Glacier. You'll have a rare opportunity to explore the otherworldly landscape of massive glaciers, interconnected fjords and mountainside glacial lakes over the next few days, but not before perhaps tucking into the Calafate berry after which the town is named to secure your return to this mystical region. (BB, D) Hotel: Kosten Aike

BUENOS AIRES SIGHTSEEING Walk in the footsteps of the porteños on your exploration of the exquisite sights of the "Paris of South America”. Wind your way through the city, past the grand pink Casa Rosada, bold and bright La Boca and the streets of San Telmo. View the ornate Teatro Colon and pay homage to Eva (Evita) Peron in the final resting place of Buenos Aires' most noteworthy residents, Recoleta Cemetery. Embrace Argentinian culture at a Be My Guest dinner this evening as you 'Connect with Locals', joining a local family in Palermo Soho who'll share their homemade family recipes, the secrets of kneading bread and the art of the passionate Tango. (BB, DW, ) BUENOS AIRES – TIERRA DEL FUEGO NATIONAL PARK – USHUAIA (2 NIGHTS) An expedition through the extraordinary landscapes of Patagonia begins today as you fly to the world's southernmost city, Ushuaia. On arrival, explore the dramatic landscapes of Tierra del Fuego National Park, Argentinian's southern-most national park on the border of Chile. Join a Local Specialist to delve deep into its natural splendor. Admire its beautiful waterfalls, the mighty Martial Glacier, forests and snow-capped mountains in which the wildlife of this area find sanctuary. Keep a keen eye out for red foxes, condors, eagles and beavers. Come face to face with the biological richness of Tierra del Fuego Island and its incredible scenic beauty, enjoying views over the Beagle Channel at Ensenada Bay, the glacial waters of Roca Lake and the deep Bay of Lapataia Bay. This evening, dinner is served at your hotel on the Beagle Channel, so named for the famous HMS Beagle on which Charles Darwin once sailed the southern seas and saw glaciers for the first time. (CB, D) Hotel: Los Yamanas USHUAIA This morning, join a Local Specialist and your fellow travelers for a tour of Ushuaia including a visit to the Museo Maritimo y Del Presidio, where you'll explore the history of the Prison at the End of the World and learn about the famous prisoners who were incarcerated there. Later, delve into its history as a former penal colony and missionary base on your own, or consider joining an optional cruise excursion on the Beagle Channel focusing on the scenic archipelago, wildlife and history. Learn about the great shipwrecks of the region, as well as the dogged determination of the first European explorers, who in the 19th century navigated this inhospitable region which has since had a turbulent history. Consider taking a longer excursion that includes views of lazy colonies of sea lions and Magellanic penguins, which Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan first saw in the early 16th century. (BB)

LOS GLACIARES NATIONAL PARK EXCURSION The day is dedicated to a deep exploration of the striking UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park. Touring with a Local Specialist, you'll come face-to-face with its arctic blue and white glaciers that are fed by the massive South Patagonian Ice Field, milky colored glacial lakes and towering snowcapped peaks. Discover the magnificent Perito Moreno Glacier, which towers above the icy waters of Lake Argentino. You could perhaps witness massive igloo icebergs plunging into the lake with thunderous force. Experience the rugged solitude of the windswept steppe and the quiet southern beach forests, before heading back to El Calafate for an evening spent at leisure. Consider indulging all your senses savoring the town's famous Patagonian lamb paired with a delectable glass of Argentina's Malbec, or pop into the Yeti Ice Bar for a chilly encounter that will warm your polar heart. (BB) EL CALAFATE – TORRES DEL PAINE NATIONAL PARK (2 NIGHTS) The Patagonian Steppes give way to the granite spires of Paine, otherwise known as Cleopatra's Needles, the main features of the UNESCO-listed Torres del Paine National Park.

YOUR GUIDED VACATION BOOKING Trafalgar Tours of Canada Ltd is the ‘Sales Company’; Destination America Inc is the ‘Operator’; collectively these companies are referred to as ‘Trafalgar’. Your agreement is with Trafalgar and a contract is formed when you make a reservation with us that we accept. Enrollment in and payment for a guided vacation shall constitute acceptance by the guest of the terms and conditions in this brochure. These cannot be varied except in writing by an officer of the Company. The invalidity of any provisions herein shall not affect the validity of any other provisions. The agreement shall be construed as though the invalid provision was not contained herein and was replaced with an enforceable provision as similar as possible to the original provision. Disclaimer Travel is personal and each individual’s goals and experiences may differ. Trafalgar will not be bound by, or liable for, any description, photograph, representation or warranty made by or provided by any independent third party sales representative, Travel Agent, or other person or entity relating to any vacation offered by Trafalgar. Departure Date The departure date is the date indicated on the booking confirmation. Security Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories” put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancellation. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions. WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE GUIDED VACATION PRICE Intra-trip Travel By private motorcoach, trains, cruises, ferries and intra-trip flights (see itineraries). Air Transportation Not included unless otherwise outlined in each itinerary page price panel. Please be advised that due to transportation security, Airlines will collect the necessary required information from guests. For more information please visit: catsa.gc.ca/home. Guided Vacation By air-conditioned luxury motorcoaches. Please note on some regional vacations smaller motorcoaches without toilet facilities are used. If due to circumstances beyond our control motorcoaches are used otherwise than as advertised, a refund of $10 per person will be made. Toilets may be affected by higher altitude or extreme weather conditions such as freezing temperatures and for the comfort of those on board the motorcoach the toilets may have to be closed. In these circumstances, additional rest breaks will be incorporated into the itinerary. Hotel Accommodation Prices are per person, based on two persons sharing with private bath or shower. Triple rooms may be available on selected vacations in limited numbers. Triple rooms will often feature one foldaway bed plus one double bed. Three adults may find these rooms small and suitcase space slightly restricted. They are generally more suitable for two adults and one child. Quad occupancy is based on four people sharing one room with two beds and may be used only for two adults and two children aged 17 or younger. Quad rooms are only available on Family Experiences with a limit of 2 adults in that room. Accommodation is typically based on two-bedded rooms with a private bath. Rollaway beds are not included in either the triple or quad prices. On Family Experiences, triple and quad rooms are strictly reserved for families traveling with young children and are not available for three adults sharing. Every effort has been made to reserve two-bed rooms; however, on some occasions, rooms with one double bed may be the only choice available. These rooms will be allocated to single travelers and couples first; other rooms may feature a single bed and rollaway bed, murphy bed or sleeper sofa. Pre or post trip extension options including Galapagos only accommodate up to two guests in all cabin types. In this case triple or quad occupancy (quad available on Family Experiences only) would use two cabins to accommodate the guests. Special room requests (adjacent, connecting or lower-floor rooms, as examples) must be made at time of booking. Special room requests are not guaranteed and are based on availability at time of check-in. Many hotels are 100% smoke-free, including all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and public spaces. Smoking in a non-smoking room may result in a fine.

Substitute hotels may be used sometimes. We try to use hotels of similar standard. Hotel Frequent Traveler program points are not earned with hotels on Trafalgar vacations. Note hotel room sizes, standards, facilities and services provided may vary from country to country and region to region and are often local in style. Cruises Per person prices are based on two persons sharing a cabin with two berths, private shower and toilet. A limited number of triple and single cabins are available. Free WiFi Internet Service Complimentary WiFi service is available in many Trafalgar hotel guestrooms and/or the public areas of most hotels. In most countries complimentary WiFi is also provided on-board the motorcoaches except in remote locations. The WiFi on the motorcoaches uses the cellular phone network and as a result the connection will be slower than standard broadband and at times may not be available. Audio and Video streaming is not available using motorcoach WiFi. Please note that it is not available on train trips, or when the main Trafalgar motorcoach is not being used, such as on transfer motorcoaches and other local services. For further information on which countries WiFi is offered in as well as daily data allowances please refer to the Trafalgar website trafalgar.com/wifi. Travel Director Guided vacations are conducted in English by a professional Travel Director. In the unlikely event that there are fifteen guests or less traveling on a departure, Trafalgar reserves the right to operate this departure on an individual basis with private transfers and individual arrangements. Please refer to the individual guided vacation. Itinerary extensions are operated on a locally hosted basis using English-speaking Local Host services. Meals Meals are included as detailed on itineraries. Sightseeing Experiences, entrance fees and an Englishspeaking Local Specialist (when required) are included as detailed in the itinerary pages. Transfers Between airports, hotels, railway stations and piers are included as indicated on each guided vacation itinerary. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers. If you did not purchase your flights from Trafalgar, you will need to provide your arrival and departure flight information to Trafalgar at the time of booking. It is your responsibility to update Trafalgar with any changes to your flight schedule to ensure that you receive your transfers. Failure to do so may result in missing these services and no refund shall be due for missed arrival transfers resulting from missing or outdated flight information. Porterage Luggage handling of one suitcase per person, at each guided vacation hotel and porter service at airports for intra-air inclusive guided vacations, is included in the price. Motor coach Luggage Allowances: Due to limited coach capacity, a single bag is allowed with dimensions not exceeding 30”x18”x10” (76x46x25cm) and weight not exceeding 50 lbs./23kg. Carry-on/hand luggage is restricted to one piece per person, not exceeding 12”x11”x6” (30x28x14 cm) to fit under your coach seat or in the small overhead compartment. Carry-ons with telescopic handles and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartments or under seats and therefore, cannot be accepted as carry-on luggage. Carry-on/ hand luggage handling is the responsibility of each guest and must be taken on and off the coach by you each day of the guided vacation. A charge of US$6/CA$6 or local currency equivalent per traveling day will be collected by the Travel Director if a second piece of luggage is permitted to be carried, or if suitcase exceeds weight or size limits. This is not assurance that luggage in excess of limits on size, weight and number of pieces will be permitted on the coach. Trafalgar and Trafalgar’s affiliated entities shall not be liable for loss or damage to luggage or any guest’s belongings. Guests should immediately report lost items to the Travel Director who will assist in completing a lost property form that can be used for an insurance claim. Trafalgar cannot assist in locating lost items after the guest disembarks or completes the Trafalgar vacation. Airline Luggage Allowances Airlines may impose stricter weight and size limits for luggage and may also charge fees for checked luggage, including the first checked bag. Please check with your airline(s) directly or iflybags. com for their most current luggage regulations and related fees. Trafalgar is not responsible for additional fees imposed by air carriers regarding luggage.

BOOKING CHANGES, CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS Booking Changes A fee of $35 or more per person, per change plus any further cost we incur, will be charged for any revision or alteration made to a reservation after the booking is confirmed. Costs and charges may increase closer to the departure date that changes are made. We will try to make your requested change but it may not be possible. A change of guided vacation date or itinerary within 45/90 days of departure date will be treated as a cancellation. Cancellation fees will apply except when the change is to an earlier departure date and the guided vacation price is equivalent or greater, in which case a $35 (or more) per person amendment fee will be charged. You must also pay any charges imposed by airlines for any changes, including name and date changes. This can be up to 100% of the value of the ticket. Names Changes A fee of $50 per person will be charged for name changes or name corrections together with any airline penalties and other cost or charges incurred.

The charges detailed in the Summary Booking and Cancellation Terms table will apply when notice of cancellation is given after the booking is confirmed. • If a guest fails to join the guided vacation on the day of departure, cancellation fees will be 100% (unless the guest notifies us of the delay and joins the guided vacation later at their own expense). • Cancellation fees as per the Summary Booking and Cancellation Terms table apply to additional accommodation and/or chargeable transfers prior to and after the guided vacation or cruise reserved through Trafalgar and are additional to any cancellation fees or other charges that may be levied by your Travel Agent. Airline Flights/Tickets: After deposit has been received, any change prior to airline ticketing incurs a [$35] service fee per person or if after ticketing a $75 service fee per person. This is in addition to any airfare rate increase and any additional change fees imposed by the Airline. Some airfares including published fares booked by Trafalgar are non-changeable and nonrefundable. See ‘Air Cancellation’ Section. • Trafalgar is not responsible for other travel arrangements that you or your party has made outside Trafalgar and which are affected by our cancellations. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under your insurance, you may be able to reclaim these charges from your insurer. You or your Travel Agent are responsible to make the claim to your insurer. Illness or Absence Early return expenses are the guest’s responsibility. There is no refund for absence or early departure from a guided vacation, including but not limited to missed hotels, transfers, meals or sightseeing.

Guests will be responsible for any penalties (up to 100% of the airfare) charged by the airlines for name corrections and itinerary changes. A service fee of $50 per person will be charged for name corrections and any additional penalties/or charges imposed by the airlines. Prior to your booking and paying your air travel, all prices and itineraries are subject to change at any time. Once a deposit is received, the base airfare is guaranteed, although Air Taxes and Fuel Surcharges are subject to change until receipt of final payment. Upon receipt of final payment, the airfare, taxes, and fuel surcharges are final, regardless of future price fluctuations up/or down.

Many airlines do not automatically add frequent flyer numbers to records for flights booked and ticketed by Trafalgar. It is the guest’s responsibility to request frequent flyer credit from the airline. Trafalgar shall not be responsible for matters concerning frequent flyer miles. CRUISE ARRANGEMENTS Cruise Accommodations A limited number of single cabins are available at an extra cost. Triple rooms are not available. Gratuities to shipboard personnel are included in cruise prices. Cruise Line Requirements Galapagos Cruise guests are required to give complete names per passport, nationality, passport numbers, and dates of birth before flights and documents can be issued. GENERAL INFORMATION & CONDITIONS Guided Vacation Prices Are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, prices, taxes, levies, exchange rates and other considerations as of the production date of this brochure (see back cover). All are subject to change. No surcharges regarding cost or currency fluctuations will be made to the LAND only price once the deposit is received. No refund will be made on account of reduction of any of the above. If the total guided vacation price increases by more than 7%, guests will have the option to cancel the guided vacation within 7 days of notification of the surcharge without penalty. All prices are in Canadian Dollars unless specified. Other Fees and Taxes Taxes and fees are subject to change without notice and will be confirmed at time of booking. Any additional fees charged by the airlines such as baggage handling, seat selections, and/or any other services are the sole responsibility of the guest(s). Additional airrelated restrictions apply. Guided Vacation Participation On all guided vacations children under 5 years of age are not eligible to travel. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Alcoholic beverages will not be served to guests under the legal age for alcohol consumption in the country being visited. Minors under age 18 traveling to certain foreign countries must be accompanied by both parents or have a notarized letter of consent signed by the parent(s) not traveling. Trafalgar is not responsible for any losses if you fail to have appropriate documentation. If the other parent is deceased or the child has only one legal parent, a notarized statement must be obtained as proof. Trafalgar seeks to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all guests. Trafalgar welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities. Please note the following: Guests must advise Trafalgar, at time of booking, - of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. Trafalgar will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided. - Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel. - Trafalgar may impose safety requirements. Trafalgar may exclude an individual from participating in a guided vacation or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by Trafalgar, to exclude an individual will be based on an individualized assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. No refunds will be given if the decision is made to exclude a guest. - Trafalgar does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A traveler who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should strongly consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other travelers, Travel Directors and Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purposes. - Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided vacations. - Trafalgar does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. Trafalgar is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained whilst on vacation, or for the quality of the care or services received. Medical care in other countries is not always comparable to care that you may receive in your local area. You are encouraged to purchase medical insurance that will cover you whilst on vacation. Your

regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad. - In purchasing your vacation, you attest that you are physically fit for it. If you have concerns please request additional details about your vacation from your Travel Agent or Trafalgar. - Some guided vacations include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven sidewalk, steps and/or locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the guided vacation, Trafalgar may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which Trafalgar does not control. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests traveling on international guided vacations. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. These are not part of the vacation package provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing of the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability: we suggest that you speak with your medical provider if you have questions about your abilities. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake. Trafalgar may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Trafalgar’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and Trafalgar shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided. Behavior We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behavior from our guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the vacation of guests who assault our Company Representatives or who are abusive or aggressive. When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behavior, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodation and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodation in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodation provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. Trafalgar is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided vacation or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold Trafalgar or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. Young Traveler Discount The Young Traveler must be under age 18 (11 or under on the Galapagos Cruise) on the departure date to be eligible for the discount, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a double or triple room. Only two Young Traveler Discounts per room are permitted, except on Family Experiences, where the limit is three. This discount can be combined with our ‘Book Together’ discount. The Young Traveler Discount may not be applicable on certain itineraries or regions and applies to the land only portion of a trip. Please see ‘Ways to Save’ for details. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar strives to improve guided vacation itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; hotels may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On guided vacations which include cruises, the ship may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions. We will try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation. In the event that we make a major change to your vacation (which does not include, for example, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same standard, or alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours) we will inform you or your Travel Agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure date. You will either have the choice of accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value, but these booking terms and conditions will continue to apply to any alternative booking), or canceling your booked vacation and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. Trafalgar’s ‘Be My Guest’ experiences are unique and take place in singular locations. In the unlikely event that our local

hosts are unable to welcome Trafalgar guests, Trafalgar will attempt to find an alternate experience or a highlight meal will be provided in place of the ‘Be My Guest’ experience. Holidays & Changes During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by Trafalgar seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Holidays, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date. Extended stays If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your guided vacation, your stay will be at your sole expense as is the transfer to either the hotel or airport. Please see the ‘Extend your Vacation’ section for a list of pre- and post-guided vacation accommodation. Space is limited and if available is for up to three nights before and/ or after each guided vacation. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted. Trafalgar does not provide complimentary transfers for guests booking pre-and post-night accommodations. However, inexpensive airport transfers can be purchased from Trafalgar. If your extra night accommodation is not the hotel where your guided vacation begins or ends, you will be responsible for your transfer arrangements at your own expense. For your comfort Trafalgar operates a daily seat rotation system and enforces a strict no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on traveling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free.

Trafalgar will refund any difference in price if the alternative is of a lower price however, the guest will be responsible for additional costs if the alternative is priced higher.
