Not many deals come up for travel to South America so I thought I would put together this itenary (instead of working ).Flight prices in S.America are usually expensive so I thought this was a decent price overall. Of course feel free to play around with the dates, just be aware however that changing any date will likely have an impact on the final price. Hand luggage only.

1) London to Rio (29th September) - Norwegian - £170

2) Rio to Santiago (3rd October) - Sky - £87

Not really a trip costing £730. Just a selection of fights with a misleading title.

Edit: Changing the title to say Tour instead of Trip doesn't make it any less misleading.

Take a bullet proof vest........................
Assuming the Norwegian flight doesn't include luggage?
Think you would need a few changes of pants on this itinerary
A strange series of fights that connect. A couple of days in each of these cities is, in my opinion, pointless. You'll have a decent bit of jetlag, and a lot of time spent on flights....

Brrr.

Appreciate the feedback. Unfortunately there were only very limited dates at cheap prices for the South American flights which unfortunately resulted in the short stays in some of the cities. Ideally, as you suggest, you would spend a few more days at each of the SA cities, although in reality it is very difficult to have a reasonable amount of nights at each destination for these types of deals due to cost considerations.

Usually I get on the OP for their deals but in my expert opinion (as a travel agent) I think this is a great deal.

im not sure how you'd be jetlagged as theres only an overnight flight on the way back, sure the flight to GIG is 11 hours but it arrives in the evening, you get to sleep and should be good to go from there. Plus 3 hour flights are nothing which is the majority of the itinerary

S.A internal flights are crazy expensive so to put this itinerary together for such a low price is pretty good going.

Also for what its worth just over 3 weeks is about the most time off work that most people would get so why not. I get the argument of spending such a short time in these places but if the choice is never seeing them or only seeing them for a short time why not go for it? you'll be pleasantly surprised by how amazing the continent is

As a travel agent, would you recommend travelling across South America for 3 weeks with just hand luggage?

sure why not, its southern hemisphere so it will be warm on those dates and on most airlines you can get away with a decent sized backpack free of charge. travel light and save some money.

Also dont forget no one is forcing you not to get luggage, its just cheaper if you dont

I've done a lot of travelling and there is no way I would even contemplate that trip with hand luggage alone. Norwegian restriction is 10kg and 55 x 40 x 23, so not big at all. You will with either be buying clothes and dumping, or spending time in a laundry (or stinking!). Each to their own.
Kinda tempted by this but agree hand luggage only could be a challenge! Good effort anyway by the OP on sharing

I've spent over half of the last 21 years travelling - I'm continually seeing people rushing around, trying to cram everything in and tick all the boxes they think they should and they're exhausted. An awful lot of the time they say they wish they'd not taken on so much and if they try anything like it again, next time they will ask to spend more time in less places.
I've spent 8 months in Central and 8 in the northern part of South America.

From experience, I found the use of full service (wash, dry and pressed) in South America pretty good - although it was a bit variable at higher altitudes (Andean Peru and Bolivia - usually came back a little bit damp) very inexpensive and pretty good. Drop-off in the morning, pick up the next morning in most cases. I remember in Vietnam, quite often the staff take the laundry from smaller hotels and I recall seeing a staff member washing clothes in a small river behind our residence, I wasn't 100% sure it wasn't my laundry! Personally, I would take a case or a backpack.

As for the itinerary - I wouldn't want to fly from Rio to Santiago (with essentially only two days there) and then up to Lima with just a 2 1/2 day stop in Santiago sandwiched between 7 hours of flying. Heat added, but this is a bit of a random whistle-stop tour - I'd sack-off some of the travelling and just do 3 weeks in Peru, or Argentina (maybe Brazil, Ecuador or Bolivia - but any of the countries other than perhaps Venezuela at the moment - but that might be an experience for the adventurous). If you've got the time and can scrape a bit of money together then you'll be able to immerse yourself in some incredible cultural experiences and get out of the big cities - I'm afraid you won't get too far from them if you've just got a couple of days in each.
Make sure you have the yellow vacanation form if doing this! Very important as Colombia does not allow you in the country via some of the countries mentioned in this trip
