Days 1-5 (December 23, 2017 - December 27, 2017)

Christmas in Buenos Aires

  • Private tour of Buenos Aires’ finest architectural and historical highlights.
  • Gourmet dinner and tango show at the city’s finest tango venue.
  • Celebrate Christmas in the enchanting city of Buenos Aires.

¡Hola, Argentina! Your private tour will introduce you to the heart of Buenos Aires’ culture, from the Casa Rosada government palace and the hustle and bustle of downtown Buenos Aires to the vibrant streets of La Boca, San Telmo and beyond. Make sure to keep an eye out for the unusual sight of a summery Father Christmas wearing shorts and a t-shirt. On Christmas Eve, restaurants in Buenos Aires usually offer fixed menus, accompanied by live music and excellent wine pairings which never fail to impress. After dinner and at the stroke of midnight, watch as the skies come alight with fireworks!

Days 5-7 (December 27, 2017 - December 29, 2017)

Iguazu Falls

  • Private, up-close tours of Iguazu Falls in both Argentina and Brazil.
  • Incredible boat ride adventure through, up to and around the waterfalls.
  • Optional activities include a helicopter ride over Iguazu Falls.

Spend the last few days of 2017 in-style, diving straight into the action (not literally, unless you want to) at Argentina’s side of Iguazu Falls. Your guide will help you avoid crowds and take you to the most hidden of the 270 waterfalls. The Brazilian side of the falls is entirely different, and ends with an up-close encounter of the largest waterfall, Garganta del Diablo (or Devil’s Throat). Don’t let the name fool you; it’s paradise!

Days 7-12 (December 29, 2017 - January 3, 2018)

New Year's Eve in Rio

  • Experience New Year’s Eve in Rio de Janeiro!
  • Small group city tour, ride the Cable Car to view Rio’s coastline from Sugarloaf.
  • Free day to enjoy the beaches, shopping and flavors of Rio de Janeiro.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the best places in the world to be on New Year’s Eve. You’ll experience Rio’s famous Carnival atmosphere as you count down to welcome in the New Year. Your small group city tour includes visits to all the highlights that will take you sky high to experience picture perfect views of the magical cityscape of Rio. Our small group guides will also take you to more cultural and authentic landmarks while experiencing the build up to the vibrant New Year’s celebrations. On New Year’s Eve we recommend soaking up the atmosphere on Copacabana beach which will be a flurry of activity as the preparations for the world’s largest New Year’s Eve party get underway.
