Question Riding with Compass Expeditions

Compass Expeditions appear to have some great looking trips in South America. With the capability of taking non riding travellers their trips work well for my wife and I. Has anyone taken a trip with them and if so how was the organization and planned accomodation. Thanks

Off to S. America

Thanks for the reply Simon, I had a look at the website, they have some interesting trips. After trading some e-mails with the Compass guys we decided to book a trip so it's off to Chile and Argentina in November. Now it's time for some Spanish lessons and some needles down at th local health clinics.

Cheers Phil

Riding with Compass Expeditions

Simon.
Just got back from the trip to Patigonia. We had an amazing time riding between Pucon Chile and Ushuaia Argentina. The guys from Compass did an excellent job of organizing the trip, this was the first tour for the company but they have worked in South America for other companies for a number of years. The bikes were the new BMW 650 (800) and worked well on the hard top (60%) and the gravel. Another trip with them in 2010 is in the works.
