Intrepid tours offer the opportunity to travel with a small group in a relaxed way. The choice of experiences and activities are very much in tune with the real culture and customs of the places visited. Intrepid has an empathetic ethos of giving back as well as receiving. The tour guides are well chosen for their local knowledge and genuine interest in their job and the people they guide.

Be prepared for all kinds of weather (rain, cool to hot) traveling from Buenos Aires to Iguassu Falls, and Rio. Consider wearing lots of layered clothing. We traveled with 2 small travel bags that fit on the plane and carried one backpack. It's the way to go. It was an excellent trip--beyond our expectations.
