    The tour turned out to be better than I expected. I liked most the trip to Iguazu Falls,and the trip to Chile thru the Andes Mountain Range. That was awesome and exhilarating. I also liked all the food that we tasted in South America. Nothing that disappointed. I wish that we had more dinners included in the package.
