A tour of Chile

Each week we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. This week: a two-week private tour of Chile. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each includes 10 nights' B&B accommodation, domestic flights, guides and Iberia flights from London to Santiago via Madrid in October.
