Spend your time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful seaside town of Buzios. Famous for being 'discovered' in the 1960s by Bridgette Bardot, Buzios is no longer the sleepy fishing village it once was, with an abundance of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and hotels. Thankfully, development hasn't been too drastic, and the town still retains much of its charm, often being referred to as the Brazilian Saint Tropez. You'll have our guide to the best restaurants and beaches so you can make the most of your time here.

Enjoy this stunning natural wonder of the world. Most of our clients choose our full day private tour of the Falls with one of our expert guides, however we do offer variations on this to include boat safaris or hikes through the surrounding national park. We can arrange for kayaking trips, canopy zipline adventures, specialist hiking trails, bird watching and much more, so please speak to our travel designers about exactly how you'd like to spend your time here.

Full day private tour to Iguassu Falls Argentinean Side including Boat trip Full day private tour to Iguassu Falls Argentinean Side including Boat trip

A stunning tour of the falls, 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.

Gran Aventura by Boat Gran Aventura by Boat

Going up river in these boats specially prepared to get to the base of Iguassu Falls and to be able to admire and feel them from up close. Whirlpools, waves and currents provoked by the Falls make this an unmissable part of any visit to the park.

Your guide will bring you to the starting point where large trucks specially adapted to this tour will take you and the other visitors to explore six kilometres in the humid subtropical forest as far as the banks of the Iguazu River, downstream from the Falls. From here you will board special high powered Zodiac boats that will take you, at high speed, to enjoy one of the most unforgettable experiences in the region: the direct and wet contact with the mighty Iguassu Falls. After this incredible trip participants will get off the boat at the base of the Falls, on catwalk that connects to the lower visitation circuit of the Falls. This tour can be started in the reverse direction, from this catwalk downwards ending with the jungle truck ride.

It's up to you how you want to spend your time in Argentina's Glacier Region, and we can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests and time should you like to.

Full day private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier Full day private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

This is a full day's tour of the magnificent Perito Moreno National Park and its humbling glacier complete with private 4WD vehicle and one of our expert guides.

Beginning with a scenic drive through the National Park followed by an guided-tour along the specially built in walkways facing the glacier, various optional additions can be made to this tour such as the nautical boat safari, minitrekking or Big Ice trekking. Talk to your travel designer about your individual preferences.

Full day's tour of the Upsala glacier and Estancia Cristina Full day's tour of the Upsala glacier and Estancia Cristina

This is a full day’s excursion to see both fronts of the Upsala Glacier, and a well-rounded tour that takes you through lakes and canals to local museums and ice shelters, with the odd adventure activity, to truly embrace the adventure and natural wonders of this region.

Boarding a modern charter boat at the Punta Bandera port you will begin your expedition at around 8.15am with a calm sail among the imposing icebergs and dramatic scenery of the western front of the Upsala glacier. Gliding through the Cristina Canal you will disembark at the Estancia Cristina where there will be a choice of activities from quad biking to horse riding to pass the afternoon including a delicious lunch at the ranch restaurant. For the remainder of the afternoon there is a guided visit to the Costumbrista museum followed by an exciting ascent in all-terrain vehicles through the mountainous roads to arrive at the Continental ice shelter. This is quite a spectacle and deserves a 30-minute walk to take in the vistas and sheer wonder of it. The eastern side of the Upsala Glacier will be the final leg of your excursion by boat on Lake Guillermo before being returned to Puerto Banderas at approximately 7pm.

Return transfer back to your lodgings.

Buenos Aires City Tour with La Boca Buenos Aires City Tour with La Boca

Your guide will meet you at your hotel and bring you (with private vehicle) on a fascinating half-day private tour of the elegant turn-of-the-century districts that earned Buenos Aires the soubriquet of the Paris of South America. Including a trip to La Boca district in the South and then up to the charming cobbled alleys and colonial architecture of San Telmo. Along to the Plaza de Mayo, up the leafy Avenida de Mayo towards the imposing grandeur of the Palace of Congress and then on to the historically fascinating Recoleta Cemetery, you will discover the facts, stories and anecdotes that make up the colourful tapestry of the history of Buenos Aires.

Tours can be extended to include la Boca, Shopping, the Colon Opera house etc.

Palace of Congress Palace of Congress

Located on the western side of the Plaza de Mayo, this is the Argentine National Congress and the legislative branch of the government of Argentina, made up of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies.

Plaza del Mayo Plaza del Mayo

Plaza de Mayo in the central area of Buenos Aires is dominated by the Casa Rosada (Government House), the Nación Bank, the Cathedral and original Parliament House

Recoleta Cemetery Recoleta Cemetery

It might seem strange to visit a cemetery, but Recoleta doesn't fail to impress. Many mausoleums and tombs are the work of famous artists, seventy graves have been declared national monuments, but perhaps the most famous for our visitors will be the tomb of Evita Perón.

La Boca La Boca

This is where the famous Caminito Street lies, scarcely 100 metres long, yet very much an emblematic post-card of the city. Designed by the Italian-Argentine artist Benito Quinquela Martín at a disused rail port terminal just beyond the iron cantilevered Puente de la Boca which bridges the river, it is a short yet busy pedestrian alley of brightly-painted houses which cluster above the cobblestones. The sheets of corrugated-iron shimmer with glossy blues, reds, yellows and greens and recall the original colours of the leftover paint with which the dockworkers painted their homes in the 19th century.
