Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Leave real life behind in Rio where the samba plays, and days turn into Tango nights with an escape to Brazil and Argentina. From the streets of Carnival to the outstretched arms of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, the sights and delights of Rio de Janeiro never fail to ignite a passion for life. Walk along Brazil’s bustling city and breathtaking beaches and chase waterfalls beside the thunderous Iguassu Falls—where Argentina and Brazil combine to create some of the world’s largest waterfalls. Ride the rails on a jungle train through the rainforest before flying to Buenos Aires. See the stunning sights, including the tomb of Eva Perón—beloved champion of Argentina’s working class. History turns to Tango with an Argentine steak dinner and performance of the passionate dance. Walk in the footsteps of poet Pablo Neruda in the shadow of the Andes in Santiago. See the sights in Chile’s captivating city as the perfect ending to this South America escape.

Everything largely went well from start to finish. Small group with no drama made it an easy itinerary. Very professional local guides, bus drivers, and tour director. Accommodations were superb. One major drawback was the intra-country airfares - horrible. Latam apparently cut alot of routes and we spent hours and hours in airports and in making non-sensical connecting flights between Points A, B, C (i.e. going 1 hr north out of the way, having a 4 hr layover, just to take now a 2 hr flight for what was supposed to be an initial 1 hr flight from Point A to Point B).

The small group tours allow us to get to know all the travelers well.
