Flying down to Rio

Much of our work at Maps Illustrated is travel industry related and recently we helped with the re-launch of the website of a Argentina based travel company. Our maps can be found dotted around their website and other publicity. To find out more about the company and maybe book yourself a wonderful South Americian adventure read on....
PlanSouthAmerica is a British-owned and operated travel company with offices in London and Buenos Aires specialising in private, tailor-made holidays, honeymoons, sporting trips and group tours to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and Antarctica. PlanSouthAmerica was actually re-launched in 2012 having evolved from PlanBA, which was founded by Harry Hastings in 2007. We’re dedicated to the original, the inimitable, the private and boutique, the offbeat, the authentic and the best-kept secrets. We focus on the countries we know like the back of our hands and we have the knowledge and contacts to open doors and make things happen. These days, booking a holiday is relatively straightforward, but creativity and attention to detail make the difference between an acceptable holiday experience and an unforgettable one. Our small team of British expatriates and Argentines are based at our Buenos Aires office and we believe this gives us the edge. We have close relationships with local hotel owners and know the hotels inside out, even down to the views they offer. We know your tour guides, waiters, chefs and the distances between your destinations better than an elephant with a sat nav. The PlanSA team enjoy daily contact with the people and places we represent – the key, we believe, to making our trips so special and to guaranteeing dependable service.
Just in case you need any more encouragement; here are a few more reasons to book a South American trip with us. When you book with PlanSouthAmerica, the member of staff who plans your trip is responsible for planning every detail and ensuring smooth running throughout, meaning you have the same point of contact from start to finish – no middle-men, no hassle. We offer round-the-clock concierge service for all clients.  If it is doable, it will be done. On top of that, our clients have exclusive access to some of the finest properties in South America, private art collections, tickets to sold-out performances and tastings at private wineries as well as airport assistance to avoid long queues. The most common complaint from visitors to South America is that they realise they tried to do too much. With such a vast continent to explore, it is important to know which regions complement one another and how best to mix-and-match them. We know how to strike a balance whilst ensuring you still enjoy a rich and varied experience, without spending too much time on the road. Itinerates are tailored to each individual client and we will do our upmost to accommodate any changes, should they arise. We do not advertise so all our business comes through word of mouth and past satisfied clients. Please feel free to visit to read some of our testimonials and to find out more about us.
