Still on a high from her previous Scenic Tours' experiences, Catriona Rowntree couldn't wait to pack her bags again to join the experts on a journey to South America, one of the world's most mysterious regions.

Scenic Tours' "Icons of South America" tour takes in familiar spectacles and more Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Iguazú Falls, Buenos Aires, the floating islands of Uron and Rio de Janeiro.
