Overview

Highlights (Bullets)

  • Enjoy meals that matter at a co-op garden and restaurant in buenos aires, where you’ll learn to make local dishes, and at a rio ngo that gives marginalised people free culinary training.
  • Watch a professional tango couple swing, sway and swagger during a private performance and then try to match their rhythm during a lesson.
  • Marvel at iguazu falls from both multiple angles with visits to the boardwalk system in argentina and the panoramic viewpoints of brazil.
  • Take a guided walking tour around rio’s port area with a local researcher and learn about the area’s history as slave-trade centre and the cultural influence of the period.
  • Gaze over the dazzling city of rio de janeiro as it’s bathed in morning light from the foot of the christ the redeemer statue, your first stop during a day-long guided tour of the city.

Short Description

Begin in Buenos Aires, South America's liveliest and most cosmopolitan city, exploring the grand architecture of Plaza de Mayo, Recoleta's iconic cemetery and bubbling La Boca. Witness the grand power of Iguazu Falls and choose whether to take an exhilarating boat trip to the thunderous base of the cascades. Then it’s time to see Rio de Janeiro, taking in Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, as well as enjoying plenty of free time to soak up Rio’s unique atmosphere. This seven-day tour packs in highlights plus smaller (but no less moving) experiences at local restaurants and lesser-known neighbourhoods.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1 Buenos Aires

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Buenos Aires, Argentina. If you are flying into the city today, enjoy an included airport transfer to your accommodation. Your adventure officially begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. After the meeting, you can choose to get into the spirit of things by heading out to an optional tango show. There’s a lot to see if you arrive with time to spare before your tour begins. If you’re a wine lover, consider taking part an Urban Adventure like the Malbec Trail of Palermo.

Day 2 Buenos Aires

Enjoy a morning exploring some of Buenos Aires’ most iconic sites with your leader on a walking tour. First stop is the Plaza de Mayo to visit the original town hall, as well as the presidential palace known as the Pink House. Walk around La Boca and its ‘Caminito’ district, before moving on to the lesser-known Barracas neighbourhood and stop in at a local NGO to learn about their agroecological model of food production and community collaboration. Help prepare a meal – much of the ingredients for which are grown in the co-op garden – and then dine on the results, including alfajores (classic South American cookies) for dessert. Your leader-guided tour continues after lunch in Recoleta Cemetery, a labyrinth of ornate mausoleums. After a stop at the grave of Eva Peron, head to Palermo to see beautiful parks and the unique Floralis Generica – a huge metal flower. Enjoy a few hours of free time in the afternoon. In the evening, enjoy a professional tango performance, followed by an hour-long beginner’s class. The dancers will explain the origin of the style and its rich history.

Day 3 Iguazu Falls (Brazil)

This morning, transfer to the airport and board your flight to Puerto Iguazu in Argentina (2 hours). While you are flying into Argentina, today will actually be spent exploring the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls, so please be sure you have any necessary visas. At over two-kilometres in length, and are made up of 275 waterfalls in total, Iguazu is higher than Niagara Falls and wider than Victoria Falls. The Brazilian side of the falls offers great panoramic views, which you’ll get to spend time taking in today. Return to your hotel in Argentina for the evening.

Day 4 Iguazu Falls (Argentina)

Rise and shine for a 7.30 am departure to the Argentinean side of the falls today, where you will be able to get up close to this incredible feat of nature. There is a system of boardwalks on the Argentinian side of the falls that allow you to access some incredible viewing points, or you could choose to take an optional Zodiac (panga) ride beneath them for an even more exhilarating approach (chat to your leader for details). At about 3 pm, you'll have to chance to accompany your leader on a visit to a Guarani community or, if you wish, you can continue admiring Iguazu Falls. Return to the hotel at approximately 5 pm and enjoy a free evening.

Day 5 Rio de Janeiro

Cross the border into Brazil this morning and take an included flight (2 hours) from Foz do Iguacu to Rio de Janeiro. Once you have transferred to your hotel and settled in, you are free to explore lively Rio at your own pace. Maybe head to the white sands of Cobacapana and Ipanema beaches for an interesting snapshot of local life. If you’re interested in listening to some live music, maybe head to Lapa and join the locals for some dancing.

Day 6 Rio de Janeiro

Embrace an early start this morning and embark on a full-day guided tour of Rio. Start with a visit to Corcovado Mountain for sweeping views over the city from the base of the Christ the Reedemer statue. Next, head to Santa Teresa and discover the eclectic architecture, restaurants and art galleries. Continue to the famous Selaron Steps to see Chilean artist Jorge Selaron’s famous artwork. Give your feet a break during a lunch stop at an incredible NGO called Gastromotiva, where dishes are made by marginalised members of the community who receive free culinary training. The meals are even made using donated produce. Finish the day with a walking tour of the Port area, which is recognized for its historical significance to the African slave trade in Brazil. You’ll be joined by a local guide from the Pretos Novos Institute (Institute of Research and New Black Memory) during your walk who will illuminate the history of slavery and resistance in the area. When your tour ends at approximately 4 pm you are free to use the rest of your day however you please.

Day 7 Rio de Janeiro

Your trip comes to an end after breakfast this morning.

This is a fantastic quick introduction to the highlights of Argentina and Brazil through their 2 most famous cities plus Iguazu Falls. However, the tour guide Carla was the one who really made the trip memorable through her enthusiasm, great organisation (offering lots of ideas on what to do in free time, plus where to eat meals not included in itinerary) and ensuring everyone in group had their particular interests catered to (whether this was museums, art, sport, shopping etc).

they are 'fair weather friends'
I did not receive so much as an email advising of changes in the cancellation policy, discovered when I contacted them to cancel.
I now receive automated emails/msgs as I attempt to work through this.
The email states I may contact them on 31 July to discuss the matter!....4 months away.
I'm absolutely stunned by how shoddy this outfit is....who knew?!
Out of pocket $4000.

Guides

All Peregrine Adventures group trips are accompanied by one of our group leaders. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. Peregrine Adventures endeavours to provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders. Your leader will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. At Peregrine Adventures we aim to support local guides who have specialised knowledge of the regions we visit. If you were interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then your leader can recommend a local guide service in most of the main destinations of your trip.
