This trip was great if you want a taste of Argentina and Brazil. The Argentine guide was very helpful at directing us to fun night spots and great places to eat. Iguazu Falls was well planned and definitely a highlight. We arrived in Brazil on Christmas Eve and had a new tour guide. He was very nice and was great at helping us order food and organising laundry etc but he didn't have a lot of knowledge about local bars/ clubs or good restaurants. We ended up doing more in Rio de Janeiro after the tour had actually finished. Christ the Redeemer is worth the trip and we also did a tour of the favela. All great! The accommodation was great. All hotels were really close to the beach or tourist attractions. The accommodation in the rainforest and on Ilha do Mel was gorgeous and so cute. All family run so you really feel like you're experiencing the culture.
