Now based in El Chaltén, Argentinian Patagonia, Zoe relishes the opportunity to lead tours for us when she is not busy guiding her own clients up the mountains.Rosie BealeRosie can always be found where the Latin beat is playing?music and dance are among her passions, along with skiing?although the hot tropical countries such as Brazil and Cuba are closest to her heart. She started with us as a tour leader who charmed everybody with her vivacity. We then benefited for several years from her experience and inspiration as one of the London office team. But those itchy feet got the better of her and now she is back in Latin America, tour leading for us again.Bill HillWell-travelled Bill worked for many years in our London office. Dealing with people's holiday plans made him yearn to go along with them, so he took the plunge to become a full-time tour leader. With an infectious enthusiasm for local cultures, he's a mine of interesting facts and snippets about local politics, customs and trivia. Lucho DiazLucho is exceptional. He works out of his native Cusco; a father of three, he is still able to devote himself whole-heartedly to tour leading. He is so popular and valued that he reached the top five in Wanderlust magazine's world-wide Guide of the Year 2009 award. His knowledge of his country and its history is boundless and he passes it on in an engaging manner. Elizabeth LuckElizabeth spent a year travelling round the world, including 6 months in South America, before deciding to make her visit to Peru more permanent. She taught English in Peru for 3 years, dividing her time between the northern beaches of Mancora and the colonial city of Arequipa. Elizabeth enjoys salsa dancing whenever possible, and is a great enthusiast for all things Latin. Duncan GriffinHaving travelled extensively around the world, Duncan fell for South America as his favourite continent. He has accumulated a wealth of experience in 8 years of tour-leading for us which he happily shares with his group. He currently resides in Lima, Peru, where he runs a hostel. Jessica DennehyBritish born Jessica is a graduate in Latin American Studies, writing her dissertation on shoe shine boys who work in the streets of La Paz, Bolivia. She has also worked as leader and interpreter on walking tours in Spain. Her Latin American experience is extensive and profound?as well as travelling she has lived in Argentina, and worked installing solar panels in Madidi National Park, Bolivia. Jane BellFrom her home in north-east Brazil, where she runs a local tour agency, Jane leads trips for us not only in Brazil but other Latin American destinations she was captivated by on her travels. A native Australian, she loves surfing and beach-life, but is happy to brave the chilly highlands of her favourite continent!Patience has to be a prime quality in a tour leader when coping with a diverse group of characters?and Bill has that quality in very good measure. JB, EdinburghDuncan did a very good job and achieved a good balance. He was always available, willing and helpful when needed. He joined in with us but very importantly (and not always the case with tour leaders from other companies), he gave us freedom and space to do our own thing. I highly recommend him.CS, HolmfirthRosie was brilliant, very knowledgeable, professional, extremely patient and great fun.GB, Stoke NewingtonJessica was an excellent group leader. She was well prepared and confident. Her unassuming style served her well, leading this small but disparate group. Her suggestions for activities were most helpful and revealed her local knowledge (and language skills which left us in awe!).NS, ChelmsfordZoe Taylor had vitality and professional aptitude in everything she did to make our holiday very successful. PT, Hemel Hempstead.
