Geographically narrow. Culturally robust. Welcome to Chile. Dominated by the Andes and the Pacific on a strip of land that runs up South America’s south-western coast, Chile boasts a mix of European and indigenous influences that imbue the country with an old-school, European feel. The Mediterranean-like climate in its wine valleys has helped propel the country’s oenological offerings to international acclaim, and nowhere is this more evident than our final night hotel, the Vina Vik, recently named one of the world's best new hotels by Travel + Leisure magazine.

The best way to see the world

By: SueandRoger

Reviewed on: 07 Jul 2015

This is our 10th Butterfield Trip. It remains the best way to see a region. Nothing beats vigorous activity during the day and luxury at night. Bespoke trips for a large group are cost-effective and totally your own. We loved our guides Denis and Jerome this month in Loire, France. Amazing trip. With B&R you have access to private homes, private experiences, and people and places you would never meet otherwise.

Butterfield & Robinson Tuscany

By: Rita C

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

My experience with B&R in Tuscany was first-rate. The guides we had were enthusiastic, knowledgeable , and professional. The accommodations were intimate and top notch. Meals at both restaurants and at the home of locals residents were outstanding. The cycling equipment was new and state of the art, including ebike and gps assist. My entire group had a wonderful time and we all agree that we will recommend Butterfield & Robinson and consider future trips with them.
