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.

A great trip to experience the key highlights of Argentina and Brazil, and a mix of urban, cultural, historical and nature adventure. My tour leader Luma was an enthusiastic ambassador for her homeland and all the local guides were fantastic as well to help you experience the most from this trip.

Overall, the trip was good. I felt the hotels could have been a bit nicer -- I would rank them a 3.5 star. Also, airplane seating assignments were in the back of the plane and it would have been nice to have them at the front of the plane.

Highly recommend Intrepid Travel who deliver an excellent service. The whole experience was well worth while. Very informative and we had a great Group Leader in Sebastian. The group size (12) was ideal with a good variation in terms of nationality and age.

Shane · Traveled November 2023
This tour covered some of the more interesting highlights of Brazil and Argentina in a quick and action-packed way. If you're looking to see the points listed on a tighter schedule, I would recommend this one. You will get a sufficient experience seeing both sides of Iguaco Falls, with Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro on either side of that. Including travel time and the fact that the first/last days of the tour are hellos and goodbyes, you really only get about 1 full day in each of those cities. So if you really want to see them more, I would recommend adding some personal time before/after the tour. You will get lots of food/activities and good accommodation throughout the tour and I personally really liked my group/leader, so if you want to spend a week seeing south Brazil/north Argentina this is good choice.
