2021 Globus Guided Tours - Globus® Vacation Packages

Brazil & Argentina Escape (K4)

9 Day Tour from Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires

2021 Tour Details

Leave real life behind in Rio where the samba plays and days turn into Tango nights with an escape to Brazil and Argentina. From the streets of Carnival to the outstretched arms of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, the sights and delights of Rio de Janeiro never fail to ignite a passion for life. Walk along Brazil’s bustling city and breathtaking beaches and chase waterfalls beside the thunderous Iguassu Falls—where Argentina and Brazil combine to create some of the world’s largest waterfalls. Ride the rails on a jungle train through the rainforest before flying to Buenos Aires. See the stunning sights, including the tomb of Eva Perón—beloved champion of Argentina’s working class. History turns to Tango with an Argentine steak dinner and performance of the passionate dance.

Small-Group Discovery

Each Globus South America tour is limited to an average of just 20 guests per departure. There’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travelers—while still getting up close and personal to the experiences you’ve been dreaming of.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, being a Tour Director is not just a dream job, it is my passion. Whether I'm revealing a famous sight or a hidden treasure to my guests, or simply helping them plan their day, it is my passion to help people discover more about Brazil and South America.
