Discover the alluring energy of Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls and Rio de Janeiro on a 7-day Premium adventure. Follow the footsteps of the Buenos Aires portenos during dinner at a local home and a lively tango dancing lesson, and weave through the city’s European influenced streets and lesser-known neighbourhoods with the guidance of a local leader. Marvel at the spectacle of Iguazu Falls from the Argentinian and Brazilian sides, then get swept up in the magic of Rio de Janeiro, from the impressive Christ the Redeemer to quirky cafes and galleries. Delight in the cultural and natural beauty of two contrasting countries.

This trip gave me a great taste of Argentina, Brazil and of Santiago and Valparaiso in Chile. It was very well organised and covered a lot of the main sites of interest in these places. The tour leader was a local and very knowledgeable.I would highly recommend this tour.

As a first time Intrepid Traveller I was just so impressed with the offering and the level of care shown by Andres who was our guide. I have recommended South America with Intrepid to so many of my friends.
