Overview & Highlights
This good value, economical private tour features three of the continent’s top highlights: the cosmopolitan yet very Latin cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro bookending a visit to South America’s most dramatic natural sight, the immense Iguazú Falls.
- Guided walking tour along the Avenida de Mayo
- Guided visit to the Argentine side of Iguazú Falls
- Jeep tour of Corcovado Mountain and Santa Teresa
A short, good value private tour to Argentina and Brazil. We can’t do justice to both of these, the largest and most diverse countries in Latin America, in a holiday of less than two weeks. But if you have to pare down the many highlights to the bare essentials, and enjoy the buzz of a Latin city, you’ll have to agree that Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires are unmissable. More or less midway between them, on the border between the two countries, lies what is probably the continent’s most dramatic natural feature, the gargantuan Iguazú Falls. In addition to the pre-arranged excursions we have selected for you there will be ample time to explore independently.
