Chile
Loading...
On this tour, discover three of South America’s greatest cities - Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, and Buenos Aires - with time in each city to explore and experience the varied restaurants, shops, and optional excursions. First, break up your journey to Brazil with a 2-night stay in Santiago, scenic capital of Chile. Your adventure begins with an included guided sightseeing tour that introduces you to the city and its sites, and you’ll also have plenty of free time to explore on your own.

Next, fly from South America’s west coast to its east coast and arrive in cosmopolitan Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for three overnights. Rio de Janeiro is an exciting city known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant atmosphere, Samba shows, gorgeous scenery, and welcoming people. On your guided sightseeing tour of Rio, you’ll take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado Mountain to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue and to enjoy 360-degree views. You’ll also have the chance to eat at a famous local churrascaria and enjoy a free day to explore on your own.

Buenos Aires is known as the "Paris of South America" with its wide boulevards, outdoor cafés, and charming shops. Here, your sightseeing with a Local Guide includes the city’s landmarks and Recoleta Cemetery, where Eva Perón is buried. No tour to Buenos Aires would be complete without a Tango show, which is included along with an Argentinean meal. You’ll also have a free day to explore Buenos Aires on your own.

A highlight of this Brazil and Argentina tour is Iguassu Falls, one of the most spectacular sites in the world! Just imagine the thundering roar of the 275 waterfalls cascading over a precipice almost two miles wide and 250 feet deep! You’ll see the brilliant rainbows created by clouds of spray and stand mesmerised on both the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the falls. You’ll even take the ecological jungle train through the rainforest on the Argentine side. It’s a natural wonder not to be missed! From the vibrant cities to the spectacular scenery, this Brazil and Argentina tour featuring Buenos Aires, Iguassu Falls, and Rio de Janeiro is the perfect holiday for value-minded travellers. It’s a holiday of a lifetime!
