Overview & Highlights

Discover two of South America’s most iconic cities on this luxurious escorted group tour, from the sparkling bays of Rio de Janeiro to the graceful boulevards of Buenos Aires. In between you’ll marvel at the colossal Iguazú Falls, one of the world’s most extraordinary natural wonders.

  • Rio de Janeiro: city tour including Sugarloaf and Corcovado mountain
  • Iguazú Falls: Brazilian and Argentinian sides
  • Buenos Aires: city tour

This trip combines the thunderous Iguazú Falls with two of the continent’s most vibrant and exciting cities, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. You’ll travel in utter comfort, enjoying the best local accommodation and private transport.

Begin your journey in Rio, a romantic and chaotic masterpiece of a city squeezed between the ocean surf and precipitous tropical forests. Spend a few days exploring its most iconic sites, catching a cable-car up Sugar Loaf Mountain and enjoying stupendous panoramic views from the summit of Corcovado Mountain, home to Rio’s 40m Christ the Redeemer statue. Next you’ll head to the roaring Iguazú Falls on the Brazilian-Argentine border, where 275 waterfalls crash through subtropical jungle alive with colourful birds and butterflies. Round off your trip in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, strolling through its grand boulevards and literary cafés.
