At a glance

This is a lively journey, incorporating the renowned energy and passion of both Brazil and Argentina. After a full day tour of arguably the most vibrant city in the world, Rio de Janeiro, taking you to the iconic Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain, and an array of its beautiful beaches, you’ll enjoy a Sumba class to truly get you dancing to the beat of Brazil’s drum.

You’ll then fly inland into the glorious natural world that lines both Brazil and Argentina, and enjoy a visit to both sides of Iguassu Falls, before enjoying an exhilarating boat ride down the Iguazu River where you’ll experience the thunderous yet awe-inspiring cascades up close.

Next, you’ll head over to Buenos Aires where you’ll spend the final three nights of the trip. Here you’ll enjoy a tour of the colourful and history rich districts which gave this city the moniker The Paris of South America.

After soaking up the atmosphere of this beautiful city, you’ll grab a partner by the hand to step in time to a tantalising tango class, in a local Confitería. Before you know it, you will have worked up an exceptional appetite. So there really is not better way to end your journey than with an indulgent exploration of traditional Argentinian Cuisine.

You will be met at your hotel by your expert, English-speaking Carioca guide and a private vehicle will be waiting to start your city tour of Rio. Your guide will tailor the tour to how you wish, taking into account your pace and preference. Enjoy a tour of the Santa Teresa neighbourhood, often referred to as the Montmartre of Rio, set into the hills close to the centre of town, which still retains a rich cultural atmosphere of art, music and history. Then head over to the historic centre of Rio where your guide will escort you through the narrow 19th century streets at your required pace, stopping at the magnificent Baroque churches and the ruins of the old port from where most of Brazil’s gold left for its long journey to Europe. Next you will choose between visiting Christ the Redeemer or Sugar Loaf mountain, Rio’s most famous attractions. At 710 metres above the centre on the Corcovado hill, the statue of Christ is surrounded by wide, open terraces from where you get unbeatable vistas of the city's impressive littoral, the southern neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema, the Lagoon, the Sugar Loaf and the town of Niterói. Sugar Loaf mountain is a massive granite rock, 396 metres tall, is one of the city’s most emblematic landmarks, adorning many a postcard.

Samba class Samba class

Enjoy a Samba Class at the same property. Samba is the national dance of Brazil, a high energy latin dance, known most commonly from the dancers at Rio carnival. Some of Brazil's best samba dancers will teach you some basic samba moves that you will be able to use later that day.

Private tour to Iguassu Falls Argentinean side including boat trip Private tour to Iguassu Falls Argentinean side including boat trip

A stunning tour of Iguassu, where you get a chance to really get up close to the falls.

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and bring you by private vehicle to the entrance of the park on the Argentinian side. You'll then be taking the rest of the tour mainly on foot. Exploring the various wooden walk ways that lead through the national park close up to the many chutes of the falls.

One of the most spectacular sites of the falls is the 'devil's throat' which sees the largest flow of water. In order to visit the Devil’s Throat, the visitor must board the train at the Main Station or at the Cataratas Station, close to the Upper Circuit. For those who love trekking there is the one-kilometre-long Sendero Verde (Green Trail) that connects the Visitors Centre to the Cataratas Station and to the Upper Circuit.

Once you are at the Devil’s Throat Station you will have to walk for 1.100 meters on a flat catwalk built over the Upper Iguassu River. This catwalk crosses several islands. Once you get to the end of the catwalks, you will be surprised by a strategic lookout point resting on the side of the gorgeous Devil’s Throat.
