Highlights

  • Buenos Aires, Argentina

    It’s easy to see how Buenos Aires created the tango, both of them being highly captivating and seductive. Visually similar to Europe (with a Latin American edge), the city is a sprawling metropolis filled with romantic restaurants, an unmatched nightlife and an aroma of passion that travels from its outer neighbourhoods through to its bustling centre.

  • Iguazu Falls

    With more than 275 Falls, the Iguazu are the most majestic of water falls, the most scenic fall is the curved cataract christened the 'Devil's Throat' which has 14 falls that drop to a height of 350 ft. There is a spectacular rainbow formed on the waterfalls caused by the reflection of light against the mist caused by thundering waters. The Iguazu Falls was named a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site in 1984 & 1986 respectively, the waterfalls are on the border between Argentina & Brazil, they divide the river into upper and lower Iguazu.

  • Rio de Janeiro (Day 2)

    In the morning, you will have a panoramic tour around the beautiful beaches of lpanema and Copacabana, known as one of the most famous beaches in South America. Then, you will head to the Corcovado Mountain, which houses the statue at the top of Christ the Redeemer, elected in 2007 as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. To get there we climbed through the Tijuca Forest, the largest urban forest in the world. It's about 40 minutes to visit the monument, click or shoot the entire landscape of the city which stretches out from the top. Lunch will be included in a local restaurant. By the afternoon, you will head to the historical center of Rio. You tour starts on 12 de Marc;:o Avenue, the first commercial street built in the 18th. From this point, the bus will proceed to Presidente Vargas Avenue, the second most important street in downtown. Following with the tour you will see the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, Rio's aqueduct, Santo Antonio Church, BNDES and Petrobras buildings reaching Lapa, the most popular night life point in Rio. Afterwards you will visit Santa Teresa neighborhood. We'll wander about on foot and discover beautiful architecture, art galleries, restaurants, and local costumes that characterize Santa Teresa. One of Rio's oldest neighborhoods, Santa Teresa, situated high on a hill overlooking Rio, enchants locals and visitors alike with its cobbled streets and eclectic architectural styles. The views of the city center and the bay aren't too shabby either. Then, you will head to Selaron's Staircase. This masterpiece and picturesque icon is one of the late artist's most famous pieces, and is without a doubt one of the highlights of this Rio tour. Finally, you will head to Urea. Up there we ride two cable cars to reach the Sugar Loaf summit. You will see an iconic spot with a fantastic view of Copacabana beach and Guanabara Bay. After that tour you will understand why Rio de Janeiro is known as the "Marvelous City"!

  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    The scale of Rio de Janeiro cannot be emphasised enough. From ecstatic views atop Corcovado peak and Christ the Redeemer down to its sea of endlessly unique markets, one struggles to find fault with this perfect captivation of Brazilian culture. Famed for its often-spiritual bond with music, this is the only place where samba rhythm can truly be experienced

  • Santiago

    Chile’s capital offers an endless sense of adventure, from quirky cafes and wild house parties through to grand museums and 16th century San Franciscan churches. Divided by each distinctly flavoured neighbourhood, Santiago’s backdrop of hilly, sky-piercing landscapes will turn every moment into the perfect photo opportunity.
