After a tour of the downtown area, we stop at the huge Metropolitan Cathedral (Cathedral of Saint Sebastian), built in the form of an ancient Mayan pyramid. We then continue driving past Flamengo Park, the largest public park in Rio, to one of the most famous symbols of the city - Sugarloaf Mountain.
Here there is the option to travel all the way to the top in two cable cars (pay locally).

Day 4 : Corcovado Mountain
Today enjoy a half day tour to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.
We start by boarding the cog train from Cosme Velho Station to Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy the steep 20-minutes train journey through the dense Atlantic rainforest of Tijuca, with wonderful views of the lush tropical vegetation, and scenic landscapes of the city and its beaches below. Disembark and climb the steps or take the escalators to the base of the towering statue of Christ the Redeemer - one of the 7 wonders of the modern world - and enjoy its spectacular 360 degree panoramas.
After descending by cog train, we drive past some of Rio's famous beaches - Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana - before you are dropped off at your hotel, with afternoon at leisure.
Day 5 : Iguazu Falls
Transfer to Rio de Janiero Airport for your onward flight.
You will be met at Foz do Iguacu Airport and transferred to one of the greatest waterfalls in the world, regarded as one of Latin America's most awe-inspiring sights.
The mighty Iguazu Falls, whose name means "Great Waters", straddles the border between Brazil and Argentina - although almost 80% of the falls are on the Argentinian side. It is situated in a huge tropical rainforest that has been declared a World Heritage site, with countless flora and fauna species.
On arrival enjoy a tour of the Brazilian side of the falls, with panoramic views of the nearly 2-mile (3 km) cliff edge. We take an elevator down to the base of the waterfalls and stop at different viewing points.
The volume of water flowing over the falls varies greatly by season, depending on the rainfall. The heaviest rains are from December to February, when the flow of water is at its greatest, but many trails are closed then due to the rains. The shoulder seasons of March/April and August/September are generally regarded as the best time to visit, but the falls are a spectacular sight at any time of year.
Afterwards we transfer across the border to our hotel on the Argentinian side of the falls.
Day 6 : Iguazu Falls
Today enjoy a half tour of the Argentinian side of the incredible Iguazu Falls.
Comprising approximately 275 separate cascades, the falls form a curtain of foaming water that crashes over a vast granite amphitheatre and into the jungle below. Resembling a reversed letter "J", most of the Iguazu River plunges down through an area known as The Devil’s Throat, with the rest spreading out over a wide shelf that splits into hundreds of different waterfalls.
There are a series of walkways that lead above, below and behind the falls, with breath-taking views. You can also hope to see monkeys, toucans, parakeets and other wildlife in the rainforest.
Day 7 : Transfer to Puerto Iguazu Airport
Transfer to Puerto Iguazu Airport for your onward flight.
You will be met at Aeroparque Airport in Buenos Aires and transferred to your hotel in this sophisticated city, situated on the estuary of the Río de la Plata - the 'River of Silver'.
Check in and relax in this capital of Argentina, known for its wonderful architecture, tango dancing and rich culture, including the highest concentration of theatres in the world.
Day 8 : Buenos Aires
This morning enjoy a 3-hour tour of the highlights of Buenos Aires, a cosmopolitan city influenced by the many immigrants who helped form it and offering beautiful architecture, history and culture.
Our tour starts at the Plaza de Mayo, the historical, political and cultural centre of the city. Here you can see the Pink House (Presidential Palace), the Pyramid de Mayo and Metropolitan Cathedral. We continue down Avenida de Mayo, with its wide avenues and spacious green areas, past the Obelisk to the neighborhood of San Telmo, one of the oldest in the city with cobbled streets and colonial houses. Every Sunday an antiques fair takes place here around the Plaza Dorrego. This vibrant area is the centre for most of the tango parlors, restaurants and bars of the city.
Going further south, we visit the Italian port neighborhood of La Boca with its famous football team, colourful houses in Caminito Street and many “cantinas” (small restaurants). Also the trendy modern neighborhood of Puerto Madero, where the old piers have been converted into upmarket offices, apartments and restaurants with views of the Rio de la Plata.
We drive through Retiro to the residential neighborhood of Palermo with its elegant mansions surrounded by spacious parks, before arrivinge in glamorous Recoleta, where we visit the famous cemetery where Eva Peron is buried, with its rich architecture. Next to the cemetery is the church of Our Lady of Pilar, the Recolete Cultural Centre (originally a convent) and the Palais de Glace exhibition centre.
In the evening you will be collected for a Tango Show. Born in the brothels of the city amongst a racial mix of Gauchos, Italian, Spanish and African immigrants, this dance and its music originated as a combination of Cuban and Spanish rhythms, with some polka and African beat. Enjoy the show and dinner, including mouth-watering Argentinian beef and Malbec wine.
Day 9 : Buenos Aires
Today is free to explore Buenos Aires independently.
Alternatively enjoy a full day optional excursion to Santa Susana Ranch to admire the skills of the Argentinian gauchos (cowboys) who live in these fertile pampas grasslands about 2-hours from the city. With a distinctive culture that combines their European and Native American heritages, gauchos play an important role in regional cultural tradition - including folk songs, dancing and equestrian shows of traditional gaucho skills, such as ring races, cuadreras (horse races) and entrevero de tropillas (horse games).
Note: Ranch is closed on Mondays.
