Accommodation at hotel Le Reve for 3 nights with breakfast.
Described by the international media as a surprising destination, Santiago stands out for being a cosmopolitan and modern city that perfectly combines its traditions with a modern outlook. The tour will take you to visit the heart of the city and its emblematic sites such as the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral, Santiago’s Central Postal Office and its Municipality. This is a private tour with English speaking guide.

A private car will drive you to the wine valley south of Santiago. You accommodation is at the beautiful Casa Real for 2 nights with breakfast.
This hotel used to be the summer residence of the owners of the wineries. It is a beautiful grand home, with extremely spacious rooms set in a beautiful park.
Enjoy your free day. Why not do a wine tasting or take part in the mountain bike rides or walks included in your stay.
Today a private car will drive you to Santiago airport where you will catch a flight to Buenos Aires. Once landed, a private vehicle will drive you to your hotel in the city.

Enjoy a morning private tour of the city. You will have a private vehicle and an English speaking guide at your disposal for 5 hours and you will visit the capital’s main sights. San Telmo, La boca, La Casa Rosada and many more! And the famous Recoleta cemetery of course!
Today is free for you to enjoy as you wish. A stroll in the Palermo neighbourhood is always lovely on a sunny day, or you can do some shopping in the beautiful Recoleta district. Also, you might want to add a dinner and tango show. Buenos Aires is where this gorgeous dance was born and a show by professional dancers is always a wonderful way to get under the culture of the city.
Today a private car will drive you to the airport where you will catch a flight to Puerto Iguazu. Once landed, a private vehicle will drive you to your hotel inside the Argentinian national park.
The Gran Melia is a luxury hotel inside the national park and it is the best choice of accommodation if you want falls view and fall asleep to the sound of the cascading water.
Accommodation at Gran Melia in deluxe room falls view with breakfast for 2 nights.
Today you can enjoy a walk along the edge of the falls in the Argentinian side of the national park.
The tour will be privately guided by an English speaking guide and it will take around 5 hours. Hopefully you will be able to walk on the Garganta del Diablo, the most famous viewpoint! Sometimes it is closed for safety reasons if the park has received heavy rainfall. I will keep you informed in due course regarding this.
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Bring a waterproof jacket, mosquito repellent, sunscreen and drinking water.
All national park entrance fees are included.
Adios Argentina! This morning you will be picked up at your hotel and cross the border into Brazil for a private tour of the Brazilian falls which offers a more panoramic and imposing view of the falls.
After the tour – about 2 hours – you will be driven to the airport for your flight to Rio de Janeiro.
Once landed, a private vehicle and an English speaking guide will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel on Copacabana.
Accommodation at Portobay Rio in deluxe balcony ocean view rooms with daily breakfast for 3 nights.
A tour to these iconic sites is a must! Rio’s beauty is appreciated from above so the scenery you will appreciate from both Corcovado and Sugarloaf will stay with you forever!
You can also choose to the hike up Urca Hill if you want a more active option.
Another day at leisure.
If you have visited the main highlights on the previous day, enjoy the beach or if you fancy exploring, a visit to Santa Teresa is a very nice spot for lunch at Bar do Mineiro or dinner in one of the restaurants with great views!
Today’s transfer is in a private vehicle.
It should take around 3 hours to reach Buzios but traffic around Rio can be quite unpredictable. However, being a Sunday, you should be going in the opposite direction of the general traffic – as most Cariocas who spent the weekend in Buzios are coming back to the city.
Accommodation at Vila da Santa in a junior rooms with daily breakfast for 3 nights.
Explore the many beaches of the peninsula and in the evening treat yourself to one of the sea view restaurants in the main town.
Another free day to relax.
Your hotel accommodation is a very charming and luxurious pousada, you can choose to relax here or on Praia dos Ossos. Also, as it is your last night, if you don’t fancy going out, Vila da Santa also has a wonderful restaurant which is highly recommended.
All good things come to an end unfortunately, but how many memories you are taking with you!
At an opportune time, you will be picked up by a private vehicle at your hotel in Buzios and driven to the airport for your international departure.
