8 Days / 7 Nights
Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires

Day 1 - Arrival in Rio de Janeiro
Upon arrival at the airport a host will meet and assist you in transferring to the hotel and in registering. The Rio natives or carioca will make you feel welcome through their uncanny good humor and contagious happiness. They boast Rio de Janeiro to be, "The most beautiful city of the world" as it hosts a turquoise sea, stunning lagoons, awesome mountains and gorgeous sandy beaches.
Dinner and Samba Show at Plataforma 1 - Rio's nightlife offers something for everyone and can be compared to any other major city's nightlife in the world. Enjoy a welcome dinner at a typical churrascaria, followed by the allegoric Samba Show of Brazilian music and folklore at the famous "Plataforma 1". (AB).

Day 2 - Sugar Loaf Mountain and Downtown Rio
Start your morning with a tour of Sugar Loaf Mountain in Guanabara Bay. Ascend the mountain by cable car for breathtaking panoramic views. Next, proceed to downtown Rio. In season (October-February) take the optional "Carnival Behind the Scenes" tour to meet the artists of the Carnival and to get a special preview of work in progress on the carnival floats and costumes. The rest of the year the optional tour will feature the "Secrets of Old Rio", a walking tour through the historic avenues, squares and back streets of Rio. The balance of the day is free. (AB).

Day 3 - Excursion to Corcovado and Tijuca Forest
The mountain drive to Corcovado (2,400 ft. elevation) is a succession of superb view sites from heavily forested heights of Tijuca - Chinese View (1,300 ft.) and Emperor's Table (1,500 ft.) are particularly sublime. The exhilarating ascent culminates at Rio's highest peak, the Corcovado (Hunchback) with its majestic 125 ft. high statue of Christ the Redeemer looking out over the entire city. There is a stiff climb (225 steps - 3 flights of stairs) from the lower level to the statue base and viewing platform, so comfortable shoes should be worn. Return is via the Tijuca Rain Forest, with its brilliant tropical flowers and lush foliage, and to nearby Tawnay waterfalls, passing Niemeyer palisades on return. (AB).

Day 4 - Free day in Rio de Janeiro
Stroll on Copacabana Beach where people watching is a popular event or if you are fashion conscious shop the favorite boutiques of Ipanema. For inspirational last minute shopping visit the stellar shopping malls favored by Cariocas. If today happens to be a Sunday The Hippie Fair of Ipanema is full of local color and great buys. (AB)

Day 5 - Flight to Buenos Aires
After breakfast transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival at the airport a host will meet and assist you in transferring to the hotel and in registering.
