2023 Season

South American Odyssey with Peru (UK version with 1 pre-night in Rio)


tour: SG89
23 days from Rio de Janeiro to Lima
Quadruple the sights, sounds, and sizzle on this South American vacation through three of the continent’s most scintillating countries. As you samba through Brazil, tango through Argentina, cueca through Chile, and marinera through Peru, your toes will meet the liveliest of dance floors, the sandiest of beaches, and the most storied of streets. Guided visits to the vibrant cities of Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, and Lima are perfectly balanced with quieter excursions to lush rainforests, chic waterfront resorts in Patagonia, and even a rural Argentine ranch where you can saddle a horse and be a beret-wearing gaucho for the day. Traditional open-fire barbecues and crispy empanadas will satisfy your cowboy cravings throughout your South American journey, while witnessing both sides of thundering Iguassu Falls, cruising Patagonian fjords beneath the soaring peaks of the Andes and visiting Chile’s renowned wine country will quench your thirst for scenic adventure. Your South American vacation wouldn’t be complete without sipping a Pisco sour and drinking in the wonder of Machu Picchu. See the ruins of the Lost City and the Sacred Valley and the cultural uprising of “it” cities Lima and Cusco to top off your vacation.
Globus offers Small-Group Discoveries on all South America tour dates. A Small-Group Discovery 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.

A Small-Group Discovery trip is the perfectly sized tour—without the crowds.
