Join us on a chance to explore breathtaking sights in three fascinating South American countries. Our adventure begins in Santiago, Chile, where we’ll tour of some of the city’s key sights, to help you find your bearings. Santiago is cosmopolitan city, with many different regions and hubs which vary dramatically, from bohemian Lastarria to affluent Las Condes. From Santiago, we’ll drive over the immense Andes to Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina. Next, its on to Buenos Aires, where we’ll visit the La Boca District, famed for its colourful buildings. Iguacú Falls will transport you to feeling that you are in the Jurassic period, with verdant forest surrounding the white-water cascades. Finally, on this awe-inspiring tour of South America, we will visit Rio de Janerio – seeing Christ the Redeemer standing tall above the city, glowing at night is a sight that will stay with you forever.

There's also the option to take a cable-car ride to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. This evening we'll gather as a group for a farewell dinner at a typical Brazilian Churrascaria. A churrascaria is a place where meat is cooked in churrasco style, which translates roughly from the Portuguese word for "barbecue". Experience the famous Brazilian barbecue and taste traditional Brazilian food such as sushi, various salads and 25 types of meat including cuts of prime beef, ostrich, lamb, and wild boar.
