Tour Overview

Our ever-popular 18-day adventure through Brazil and Argentina kicks off in style by touring the vibrant and beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro. Separated by the Serra da Carioca, a steep mountain range in the Parque Nacional da Tijuca, Rio is, by nature, a highly distinctive destination, a feature that is mirrored in its man-made environment-a prime example being the majestic statue of Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), whose regal, outstretched-armed stance, can be seen from any location in the city. We explore world-famous golden-sand beaches that fringe fascinating towns that buzz with activity day and night, and mingle with the friendly locals as we learn about the unique culture of Brazil. Crossing the border into Argentina, we tour the capital city, Buenos Aires, and make our way through a number of notable towns and cities before witnessing the natural world at its finest in Patagonia. Abounding wildlife, glacier sceneries, turquoise lakes and cascading waterfalls are the hallmarks of Patagonia and we balance this experience of nature with exploration of Argentina's urban charms and historic sites of interest.

All of the excursions were great. We loved Iguazu Falls, the walks at Perito Moreno Glacier, the boat cruise to the glaciers, and the boat cruise on the Beagle Channel. We were delighted to have a 4 1/2 hour cruise to see the penguins at the Beagle Channel. All of the local guides were very knowledgeable. The evening meals were good. Chris managed to find lots of interesting local restaurants to eat in. You can tell that Chris loves what he is doing. He is the perfect fit for this job. We would love to travel with him again.
