Discover some of South America’s greatest cities-Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Lima, and Quito-and some of its most spectacular ruins and scenic areas on this South America tour. Overnight in Manaus, the Amazon Jungle, Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, Buenos Aires, Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, Quito, and Guayaquil, along with four nights cruising the Galápagos Islands.

Highlights of this South America tour include Iguassu Falls, where you’ll hear the thundering roar from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides, be amazed at the brilliant rainbows, 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. Visit the Inca ruins at Ollantaytambo and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, with stones weighing up to 350 tons. 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.

In each city, enjoy guided sightseeing of the cities’ must-see attractions, including the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio, Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, the baroque 11th-century San Francisco Monastery in Lima, and Quito’s La Compania Church. But that’s not all…you’ll also spend time in Brazil’s Amazon, where you’ll cruise on the river, take Naturalist-guided walks, visit a local village, and marvel at the flora and fauna that thrive in the Amazon. While cruising the Galápagos Islands, you’ll see sea lions, land iguanas, hybrid iguanas, boobies, Darwin’s finches, and much more.

Ancient ruins, stunning scenery, guided sightseeing, native flora and fauna, and local experiences-this South America tour designed for the value-minded traveler has it all!
