Discover some of South America’s greatest cities – Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Lima – and some of its most spectacular sites on this South America tour to Chile, Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. You’ll overnight in Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, Buenos Aires, Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, and Lake Titicaca.

First, break up your journey to Brazil with a 2-night stay in Santiago, scenic capital of Chile. Your adventure begins with an included guided sightseeing tour that introduces you to the city and its sites, and you’ll also have plenty of free time to explore on your own. Next, fly from South America’s west coast to its east coast and arrive in cosmopolitan Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for three overnights. In Rio, take the cog railway to the summit of Corcovado to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue. Your time in Buenos Aires includes a visit to Recoleta Cemetery, burial place for Eva Perón, and a Tango show. In Lima, your sightseeing focuses on the city’s colonial heritage.

Highlights of this South America tour include time at Iguassu Falls, one of the world’s most impressive sites. Experience the falls from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides, hear the thundering roar, be amazed at the brilliant rainbows created by the clouds of spray, and stand in awe as you witness these 275 falls spanning nearly two miles! You’ll also be amazed at Machu Picchu, set in a majestic mountainside with ruins dating back to the 15th century. Glimpse the ancient history and culture as you enjoy this stunning and mystical place. Other tour highlights include a visit to the Inca ruins at Ollantaytambo and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, where stones weighing up to 350 tons piece together to form a complex housing up to 10,000 men. Time in Peru’s Lake Titicaca, a lake of floating islands maintained over centuries by the local Indians, gives you a chance to experience the world’s highest navigable lake and to learn about local practices. All of this and more are included on this South America tour designed for the value-minded traveller who wants to experience it all!
