2023 Season

Brazil, Argentina & Chile Unveiled with Brazil's Amazon


tour: 1102
16 days from Manaus to Santiago
This South America tour features three of the continent's most exciting cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Santiago—along with Iguassu Falls and Brazil’s Amazon. At a relaxed pace, you'll enjoy guided sightseeing in each city as well as free time in Rio to sip caipirinhas and visit the famous beaches, in Santiago to people-watch at a lovely café with the snowcapped Andes Mountains as your backdrop, and outside of Buenos Aires to take an optional excursion to a local estancia (ranch). Your guided sightseeing tours include the cog railway in Rio de Janeiro that takes you 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue and 360-degree views of the city; Recoleta Cemetery, burial site of Eva Perón, in Buenos Aires; and a visit to the 18th-century Cathedral in Santiago. You’ll also be able to witness a Tango show— the world’s most sensuous dance—in Buenos Aires, a city where romance permeates the air. A highlight of this South America tour is a visit to Iguassu Falls, where you'll experience the falls on both the Brazilian and Argentine sides. Hear the thundering roar of the water, be awed by the rainbows formed in the mist, and enjoy the ecological jungle train that takes you through the rainforest for unforgettable views. Pictures cannot do justice to these falls—they must be witnessed in person! But that's not all…you’ll also stay inside the Amazonia rainforest. You’ll cruise down the Rio Negro to the Meeting of the Waters, where the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões form the mighty Amazon. You’ll enjoy Naturalist-guided walks to see the Amazon’s flora and fauna, and you’ll visit an Amazon village to learn about the local way of life. From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, this vacation to South America will leave you with vacation memories you'll cherish for life. For savvy, value-minded travelers, it's the perfect vacation.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, being a Tour Director is not just a dream job, it is my passion. Whether I'm revealing a famous sight or a hidden treasure to my guests, or simply helping them plan their day, it is my passion to help people discover more about Brazil and South America. I like to share my stories, experience, and knowledge with guests so that they can get a real insider's point of view.
