You'll overnight in Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco. Enjoy guided sightseeing in each city: Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Lima, and Cusco. Take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado Mountain to see the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio; visit Recoleta Cemetery, where Eva Perón is buried, in Buenos Aires; explore the 18th-century Cathedral in Santiago; visit Lima's 11th-century San Francisco Monastery; and explore Cusco’s Cathedral, with its important collection of artwork. Also, enjoy a spectacular Tango show in Buenos Aires. You’ll also have a free day in Rio, Buenos Aires, and Santiago to explore on your own. Tour highlights include Iguassu Falls and Machu Picchu. Witness Iguassu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides. You'll marvel at the 275 waterfalls spanning almost two miles, the thundering roar of the falls, and the 180-degree rainbows that surround you. At Machu Picchu, stand in awe as you witness these 15th-century ruins and learn about the Incas' accomplishments. Set in a majestic setting, it is nothing short of spectacular! While in Peru, you'll also visit other Inca ruins, including Ollantaytambo and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, where you'll see an amazing example of Inca masonry. You’ll also have a chance to visit an Indian market, a local's home and to learn why camelids (llama, vicuña, alpaca, and guanaco) are important for Inca cultures. Historic sites, beautiful scenery, vibrant cities, and time to explore on your own—all of this and much more await you on this value-minded South America tour. It's a vacation of a lifetime!

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.
