The Argentina and Brazil Adventure trip was absolutely amazing! A few days were rainy, but that didn't stop us from exploring and seeing all the sights. Then when we got to the Ibera wetlands, it stopped raining so all the animals came out. Couldn't believe how many we saw! There were only 6 of us on this tour which I thought was perfect. I actually had more fun on this trip than trips I've taken with friends! Our leader was Ernesto and he did an amazing job. All of the things on my list to try and see after the itinerary items, he already had covered and helped us get there. A tango show, the famous beaches, sugarloaf and more. He is a great communicator and everything went very smoothly because everyone knew exactly where to be when. And we knew what to expect throughout the trip as he would give us a rundown daily of what was coming. If you read the itinerary carefully, you will know there are some travel days, so shouldn't be disappointed. But after we got to our destination, Ernesto made it fun by finding a great place for dinner. (just make sure you wear good walking shoes because sometimes they are a long walk) For each excursion, we had experts at that location. They were all excellent as well! I highly recommend this trip if you enjoy nature.

I had a wonderful time on this trip. It was safe, well organized, and covered a lot of ground. We had a good group of travellers, and our trip leader Andres was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful. Seeing Iguazu Falls from all sides was amazing. The wetlands were a highlight, as well, being an area that I had previously not known anything about. I also appreciate Intrepid's goal of responsible travel toward the environment and local communities.

The highlights for Argentina were the Tango show, Iberia wetlands and iguazu Falls. The wildlife was amazing. Brazil is a vast country and the trip focuses on Rio. Felt safe in both countries, even walking on my own - you just need to be mindful of your environment
