Weaving together such diverse elements as the Andes, a Lake District crossing, and wondrous Iguazu Falls with the urban appeal of Santiago, Buenos Aires, and Rio, this engaging 18-day small group tour renders our South American neighbors in all their beauty and vitality.  

First, discover sophisticated Santiago, with its fascinating Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, and encounter colorful Valparaiso.  Take a private winery tour in Chile’s acclaimed Maipo Valley wine-growing region, then dine in a gracious Santiago family’s home.  

Spending two nights in Chile’s picturesque Lake District, enjoy a rodeo demonstration and a traditional barbeque at a ranch.  Experience stunning scenery during a Lake District crossing by catamaran and coach to Alpine-themed Bariloche.  With three nights in lively Buenos Aires, sightsee and watch a tango show.  

Admire spectacular Iguazú Falls, then spend two final nights in vibrant Rio de Janeiro.  Discover revered and remote Easter Island with a 4-day/4-night pre-tour option.
