Kuyay Travel – Patagonia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil
We know you have numerous options when it comes to planning your vacation, especially the number of large, mainstream operators and agencies. Unfortunately, the offerings of tours for Gays and Lesbians is still limited, in particular those of the nature and adventure variety.
Here are a few reasons to consider Kuyay Travel:
Kuyay (which means “Love” in Quechua, the most spoken indigenous language in Latin America) is a local company, so your business supports the local economy and helps preserve the beauty of our natural environment,
We are the only Gay-owned and Operated Tour Operator / Travel Planning business in Patagonia understanding the unique needs of the GLBT community,
Since we own and operate the business, planning, decision-making and problem solving are quick, and our personalized service is unbeatable,
We know that our clients primarily want a hassle-free vacation, customized to their needs, exceeding their expectations, and all at a fair price,
Our escorted tours are very limited in size (8 max.), which both reduces our impact on the environment and ensures a more intimate experience,
There are no “middlemen”, so by keeping our overhead low and working only with local operators and GLBT businesses, our prices are nearly as amazing as Patagonia itself!
