International outbound flight
Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Buenos Aires.
Day 2 Buenos Aires
Day 3 Buenos Aires
A day at leisure in Buenos Aires. We suggest simply ambling around the city's districts, which all have their own distinct character. You may also like to take a tour of the Teatro Colon, an opera house with a French Renaissance facade and some of the best acoustics in the world. This evening, take a shared transfer to the El Querandi Tango Show, which includes dinner.
Day 4 Buenos Aires
Today we recommend taking a deeper look at Buenos Aires on a city tour that focuses on a specific district like Palermo or Recoleta. You can also choose by interest and see the city's famous markets, museums, or cafes for example. The city's nightlife is well-wroth experiencing. If you are up for a full day of exploration another nighttime excursion can be arranged this evening.
Day 5 Iguaçu Falls
Take a private transfer to the airport for your flight to the Iguazu Falls. The flight lasts around two hours. Arriving at the airport, you're met by your chauffeur-guide and driven to the Brazilian side of the falls. Start at the Visitors' Centre and take the small train up through the jungle. You can roam around walkways ensconced in jungle and admire the falls from different vantage points. Get up close to the 'Devil's Throat', the most powerful section that sends up vast clouds of spray.
Day 6 Iguaçu Falls
Day 7 Rio de Janeiro
Take a private transfer to the airport for your two hour flight to Rio de Janeiro. En route, visit the viewpoints of the Brazilian side of the falls. Arriving in Rio, you're met by your chauffeur-guide and taken to your hotel. You have the rest of the day to relax and rest.
Day 8 Rio de Janeiro
Your private chauffeur-guide picks you up from your hotel for a full day (six hour) tour of Rio's highlights. Your first stop could be Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, followed by a cable car trip to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Here, look across to where Christ the Redeemer surveys the city from his 710 m (2,329 ft) perch. After lunch (not included, although your guide can recommend a place to eat), take the cog railway up Corcovado Mountain to stand right under the statue.
Day 9 Rio de Janeiro
Today you can choose to relax at your hotel, ideally wither by the pool or down on the beach, or continue to independently explore Rio. Tonight will be spent with a local food guide sampling some of the best small plates and drinks in the city.
