On this tour, discover some of South America's fascinating cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, and Manaus—along with Brazil’s Amazon. Rio de Janeiro is an exciting city known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant atmosphere, gorgeous scenery, and welcoming people. On your guided sightseeing tour of Rio, take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado to view the infamous Christ the Redeemer statue and to enjoy 360-degree views. 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 Peron is buried. You’ll also enjoy a Tango show and a free day to explore Buenos Aires on your own. In Uruguay, enjoy guided sightseeing in Montevideo and in the colonial city of Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded in 1680. A highlight of this South America tour is Iguassu Falls, one of the most spectacular sites in the world! Just imagine the thundering roar of the 275 waterfalls spanning almost two miles wide! See the brilliant rainbows created by clouds of spray and stand mesmerized 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. But that’s not all…also enjoy Brazil’s Amazon. Stay inside the Amazonian rainforest, cruise on the river, enjoy Naturalist-guided walks to see the flora and fauna, and spend time in an Amazon village learning about the local way of life. From the vibrant cities to the spectacular scenery, this South America tour is the perfect vacation for value-minded travelers!
