I thoroughly enjoyed my intrepid adventure from Bueno Aires to Rio. The tour itself was great I saw a lot of the major landmarks of the cities and the iguazu falls is unbelievable. Simply stunning. I would highly recommend this tour for people who have a limited amount of time and a lot of space to cover. I think this tour is suited to the more mature traveller as I am in my mid 20's however my tour group were quiet a bit older than me (between 37-74) and this seemed to be common for this tour nevertheless I had a brilliant time.

The trip was beyond our expectations. The tour group was small, we were well taken care of by our fearless leader, Dennis. The tour guides were all excellent. You could feel that they loved their countries of Argentina and Brazil. The balance of exposure of the cultures from the big cities, to the small towns, and the eco-friendly communities was well thought out. All in all, a wonderful experience.
