Rio de Janeiro - Iguassu Falls -

Escape to two of South America's iconic cities with a guided tour of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. First, you'll visit the exciting city of Rio de Janeiro --known for its beaches, vibrant atmosphere, welcoming people, and, of course, Samba music and dance! On your guided sightseeing tour of Rio, you'll take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado Mountain to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue. Next stop, Argentina - a trip to magnificent Iguassu Falls. You'll see one of the world's most spectacular natural sights, with the thundering falls cascading over a 2-mile-wide, 250-foot-high cataract. Continue to Buenos Aires --known as the "Paris of South America" for its wide boulevards, outdoor cafés, and inviting shops. Go sightseeing with an expert local guide to see the city's historic landmarks, including Eva Peron's resting place at Recoleta Cemetery. And, no trip to Buenos Aires would be complete without a Tango show, which is included along with an Argentinean meal.
