Discover some of South America's greatest cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Lima—and some of its most fascinating ruins and spectacular scenery on this South America tour. You'll overnight in Manaus, Brazil’s Amazon, Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, Buenos Aires, Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, Arequipa, and Colca Canyon.

Highlights of this South America tour include time in locations with spectacular scenery: Brazil’s Amazon, Iguassu Falls, and Colca Canyon. In Brazil’s Amazon, cruise on the river, take Naturalist-guided walks, visit a local village, and marvel at the flora and fauna that thrive in the Amazon. At Iguassu Falls, hear the thundering roar from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides, be amazed at the brilliant rainbows in the mist, and stand in awe as you witness these 275 falls! At Colca Canyon—an impressive geological formation more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon—witness condors soaring majestically above the canyon walls, marvel at the canyon, and relax at La Calera hot springs before time in Arequipa, known as the “White City” for its buildings made of volcanic rock.

You’ll also enjoy Machu Picchu, set in a majestic mountainside with ruins dating back to the 15th century. Glimpse the ancient history 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. Time in Peru's Lake Titicaca, a lake of floating islands maintained over centuries by the local Indians, gives you a chance to learn about local practices.

Guided sightseeing in each of the cities features the must-see sites. In Rio, take the cog railway to the summit of Corcovado to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue. In Buenos Aires, visit Recoleta Cemetery, Eva Peron’s burial place, and enjoy a Tango show. In Lima, sightseeing focuses on the city's colonial heritage.

"Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, I speak English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese. I became a Tour Director in 1986, and I love my work. It's so great to see guests engage with the diversity of South American countries -their traditions and contrasts. I love sharing the history of these countries, watching the group interact during the trip, and knowing I play a fundamental role in the success of the trip."
