Well-organised trip, I felt very safe and I had a great time as well! We covered a lot of destinations that would have been a logistical nightmare to book on my own. I particularly appreciate Intrepid’s commitment to ethical tourism and impacting local communities in a beneficial way.

The Argentina and Brazil trip was a great introduction to the culture and natural environment In these countries. Highlights were visiting the Iguazu Falls and seeing wildlife in the wetlands in Argentina. It was just a taster really so would inspire many travellers to go back.

A jam-packed trip of the highlights in Argentina and Brazil! We were able to see a lot during this 10 day trip including a place that is a little more off the beaten path for international travelers. The trip had a good balance of scheduled activities and "free" time to explore or rest. The transports between each location were comfortable. Our Tour Leader, Tomas, was very personable and helpful throughout the whole trip including providing recommendations for dining and activities. He stayed organized throughout the trip and provided us with a clear itinerary for each day of the trip.
