This trip is for the 18 to 29 year olds

This week-long adventure is action-packed, balancing exciting highlights with more low-key free time to explore on your own. Walk the streets of vibrant Buenos Aires and try the world’s best steak with your new trip mates. Experience Iguazu falls from two angles, two countries and two perspectives (you won’t get sick of that view, don’t worry). Finish off in party town Rio, where you can sip cocktails with locals, laze on the beach or take a hike to enjoy the views from one of the seven wonders.

Karina was an incredible group leader! She was very knowledgeable, communicative (clear on start times, itineraries, etc.) and created a very harmonious vibe amongst the group. This is the best group tour I’ve been on and Karina’s leadership had a massive influence on that! Other than Karina, the tour itself was incredible and well paced. We got all the highlights and all the accommodations were amazing and conveniently located!

So much fun packed into such a short amount of time! It's a great opportunity to meet good people and get acquainted with some key locations in both Argentina and Brazil--two gorgeous and incredible countries. Our guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and indispensable!

I went on an Intrepid tour to Argentina and Brazil. I don't speak the languages, so the tour was great for dealing with all the planning and getting-around, so I could focus on enjoying the destinations. The tour guide (Lorenzo) was extremely knowledgeable and really brought the destinations to life.

Must-see Iguazu Falls This trip combines my overall highlight of the Iguazu Falls with the large cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Buenos Aires is very colerful and you should taste it's delicious steaks! Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful city. Enjoy a sightseeing tour or just chill on one of many beaches. Both cities are also recommended if you want to spend a night out! Have fun!
