ARTHUR & CLAIRE'S BOOKED TRIP ITINERARY

Buenos Aires

DAY 1: YOU ARRIVE IN BUENOS AIRES

(staying for 3 nights, with 4 tours included)

Flight arrival in Buenos Aires, Argentina!

Welcome at the airport and transfer with private vehicle and guide to your hotel.

Images of Buenos Aires: European Heritage and Latin American Passion (private tour)

Buenos Aires has been chosen for 3 consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) as the #1 destination to visit in South America by millions of TripAdvisor users in their “Traveler’s Choice” contest... and rightfully so! This cosmopolitan, vibrant, and sophisticated city, commonly called the “Paris of Latin America,” is the best place in the world to enjoy a first-class tango show and to eat some of the tastiest steak, accompanied by celebrated Argentine Malbec wine.

Our expert “porteño” (as locals are called) guide will take you on a cultural journey, where you’ll visit the most iconic neighborhoods and learn about the highlights of the city; taking in its architecture, culture, history, and more! This tour is also a great opportunity to learn from your expert tour guide, the necessary information and useful tips to make the most of your free time in the city.

This is a private 4-hour tour.

DAY 2: BUENOS AIRES

Jewish Life & Heritage in Buenos Aires (private tour)

The community is the largest in Latin America and the 7th largest in the world. Today, Buenos Aires’ Jewish heritage remains very much preserved. Our Jewish guide will introduce you to some of the unique features of Buenos Aires’ Jewish culture and heritage.

We’ll explore the traditional Jewish neighborhood of “Once”. This neighborhood is Buenos Aires’ version of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and previously bustled with yiddishkeit: Jewish cafes, theatres, a Yiddish press, Jewish schools and businesses.

We will also visit what is arguably the most ornate synagogue in Argentina, and also oldest one, dating back to 1897: the Libertad synagogue, built in an impressive fusion of Romantic and Byzantine styles.

We’ll also visit the other important Jewish institutions like the site of the new AMIA building, the Jewish Community Center that was bombed by terrorists in 1994 and rebuilt in 1999.

This is a 4-hour private tour.

DAY 3: BUENOS AIRES

The Woman Behind the Myth: Discovering the Real Evita (private tour)

Every nation has its heroes... those who leave an enduring mark in history, and even up to present day. For many Argentines, Eva Perón (also known as Evita), was such a hero. Serving as First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952, she was wife to powerful political leader and 3-time Argentine President, Juan Domingo Perón; as well as a key figure to understanding the development of the most important and influential political and social movements in Argentine history: Peronismo.

Evita was key in establishing women’s suffrage in Argentina (voting was reserved for men only) and greatly influenced the drafting and approval of workers’ rights legislation, which was practically nonexistent until then. She also spearheaded high-profile social welfare initiatives. On the other hand, she was ferociously aggressive against the wealthy minority, which earned her the passionate hate of Argentine landowners and industrialists. With that kind of staying political power, Evita has definitely earned her place among the country’s most influential legends. She was a powerful woman, during a time when women were supposed to remain silent.

On this intriguing Evita tour, our expert guide will take us to the sites that explain the political and cultural conflicts brought about by the emergence of Eva Perón; her political performance, her untimely death at the age of 33, and the continuity of her myth, even today.

This is a 3-hour private tour.

Passion and Beauty: an Authentic World-class Tango Experience

You are cordially invited to an evening of live music filled with passion, sensuality and dancing, at one of the best Tango venues in Buenos Aires: La Ventana. Located at the heart of the historic San Telmo neighborhood, you’ll enjoy a world-class Tango show in a restored tenement building (or, ‘conventillo’). This enchanting show also boasts unique features of Argentine folklore.

As you step through the doors, you’ll feel as though you have traveled back in time, with the interior of the building preserved in its original style. The show at La Ventana is a journey through the history of Tango, in which you’ll experience different and authentic styles of this mesmerizing dance, each with its own particular set of music, dancing style, and costumes.

Tango is a universe onto itself as it creates a multi-layered marriage of music, dance, singing and poetry.

This tour includes group transfers and dinner with non-alcoholic beverages & wine.

DAY 5: EL CALAFATE

Seven Panoramic Boardwalks of the Mighty Perito Moreno Glacier

Prepare to visit one of the world’s most awe-inspiring and unique glaciers: The Perito Moreno. This bright white ice giant showcases its mighty glory in the Patagonian Glaciers National Park, which has been declared Mankind’s Natural Heritage site by UNESCO. The park’s vast size not only gives it the distinction of being the largest ice mantle in the world, after Antarctica, but also the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet.

The Perito Moreno is of the few glaciers in the world actually growing and advancing, as opposed to the majority of the world’s glaciers, which are retreating and melting due to the effects of global warming. The ice that serenely sits above the water measures an impressive 262 feet (80 meters), which is just about the height of a 25-story building! And while that’s an incredibly large size for the human eye to take in, consider that this measurement is only 15% of the glacier’s total height. Five times more ice is hidden underwater.

Our destination is the panoramic boardwalks which overlook the Perito Moreno Glacier. Here, amidst the backdrop of the majestic, snow-capped Andes, you’ll find yourself immersed in an unforgettable glacier experience, while enjoy amazing picture-taking opportunities from the seven panoramic balconies facing the front of the glacier.

While the glacier itself is definitely the main attraction, the park also boasts remarkable scenery as well as glacial streams, small lagoons, crevasses, gullies, and plenty of ice formations that’ll dazzle the eye, surrounded by the scenic beauty of the Andes Mountain range, lakes and forest areas.

This is a full-day group tour.

The Mighty Perito Moreno Glacier Close-up Navigation Experience

Take in the sheer size and beauty of the Perito Moreno Glacier as it towers before you, from an exciting close-up perspective, as we cruise across the pristine waters of the Rico Branch of the Argentino Lake, which borders the Southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The sheer magnitude of the southern wall alone is a humbling and inspiring sight. We’ll be stopping about 985 feet (300 meters) away from the southern wall of the glacier for some epic picture-taking opportunities that will showcase the grand scale and beauty of the glacier.

This will be definitely a different perspective from what you experience on the panoramic boardwalks.

This navigation is a 1-hour group tour done on the same day you do the Perito Moreno Glacier tour.

DAY 6: EL CALAFATE

Icy Blue Giants: Navigate the Largest Patagonian Glaciers and take the most Awe-inspiring Glacier Photos (in boat’s VIP section)

Hop aboard as we embark on a discovery journey to admire the second largest glacier in South America: the Upsala, as well as other Patagonian ice giants only accessible by boat. The glaciers’ grandness is imposing, and their color remarkable: ranging from pure white to shades of dark blue. We’ll get comfortable in our seats, inside the exclusive VIP cabin on the upper floor of our ship, where we’ll experience better panoramic views with superior comfort and service.

On our way to the Upsala Glacier, we’ll enjoy great photo opportunities while we see icebergs of incredible and diverse shapes and sizes.

This is a full-day group tour and includes lunch at VIP boat cabin, including water, soft drinks, wine and beer.

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind panoramic hiking experience, where you’ll be enchanted by some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of Patagonia, including one of the ten most beautiful views in the world, as rated by National Geographic!

Our expert guide will help you hone your hiking skills, as you set out to explore the surrounding areas of Mount Llao Llao. You’ll also take a chairlift ride up Campanario Hill, where you’ll enjoy awe-inspiring panoramic views of deep-blue lakes and snow-capped mountains. Get your camera ready as this will surely be one of the best opportunities to take some of the most wonderful and sublime landscape photos out there!

This is a half-day private tour.

DAY 9: BARILOCHE

Navigating the Nahuel Huapi Lake & Exploring and Hiking at Victoria Island and the Myrtle Forest (with private guide)

Prepare to navigate the beautiful blue waters of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, the largest in Argentina’s Lake District, set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Andes mountain range. We’ll enjoy our exclusive seating in the boat’s upper deck cabin. From here we’ll experience superior panoramic views and a much more exclusive setting, since there are only 50 seats in this cabin (compared to the over-200-people capacity of the regular cabin).

Known for its cold glacial waters and for being the habitat of kelp gulls and blue-eyed cormorants (which are typically only found near oceans), the Nahuel Huapi Lake provides plenty of natural beauty and beckons with the serenity of its waters.

We’ll visit the largest island on the Nahuel Huapi Lake: Victoria Island, home to a wide array of flora and fauna; also offering plenty of history, including ancient cave paintings. Another highlight of this navigation includes a visit to a unique forest of myrtle trees at Arrayanes National Park. These intriguing, cinnamon-hued trees are known for their attractive, smooth and tan bark, peppered with white spots; and giving the forest a captivating mystique. In fact, it’s widely fabled that Walt Disney, during his visit to Argentina, was inspired by this forest to create his animated classic “Bambi.”

DAY 11: IGUAZU

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

DAY 12: LAST DAY IN IGUAZU

Behold the Breathtaking Panoramic Views of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian Side (private tour)

With 80% of the falls located on the Argentine side, it is only from the Brazilian side that one can see almost all of them at once, in full, breathtakingly panoramic views.

The Brazilian side offers majestic scenic views of the beauty and entirety of the falls; this is because the Brazilian footbridge lies across the river from the falls, offering a unique perspective and epic scenic views, making the Brazilian side different and absolutely complementary to the experience from the Argentinean side.

This is a half-day private tour.

Walking Among Exotic Birds in the Iguazu Rainforest

You’re about to enter a one-of-a-kind bird sanctuary! Here you’ll find the largest colony of toucans on display in the world, as well as the largest colony of parrots on display in South America, along with 150 different bird species from Brazil and all over the world, many of them endangered.

Located in the midst of the lush tropical rainforest, Foz Tropicana Bird Park is an internationally-recognized rescue and preservation center for endangered birds; and it’s among the most important ones in South America. You’ll find yourself side by side a myriad of exotic birds, in the three walk-in aviaries, where you’ll have the opportunity to have an up-close and personal experience with amazingly colorful parrots and Toco Toucans, among many other birds… all of them right next to you or even flying over your head!

In addition to the diversity and beauty of the birds you’ll see, the park itself presents itself as a unique location. It covers nearly 40 acres (16 hectares) of rainforest, so you’re quite literally going to find yourself in the middle of nature as you make your way along the trails!

This visit lasts about 2 hours and is done on the same day you do the Brazilian side of the falls tour.

"Exploration Journeys, and especially Fred, turned our dream trip into reality − and made it even better than we had imagined."

"We felt as if we had a guardian angel watching over us the entire time. He checked us in for our flights, sent boarding passes, and kept track of what was happening."

"When one tour was cancelled, he immediately rescheduled it with another (better) option. If we had any questions or concerns, we could call or email 24/7."

Elaine & Dorothy visited: Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza, El Calafate, Ushuaia and Peninsula Valdes Region on January 2020.
This was their first trip to Argentina

TRIP REVIEW OF ELAINE BADEN AND DOROTHY BULLARD

"Exploration Journeys, and especially Fred, turned our dream trip into reality − and made it even better than we had imagined. They customized our itinerary to include absolutely everything we wanted to do, and then included suggestions for additional sites, museums and outings we could add on our own. He supplied information on weather, tipping, taxis and restaurants at every destination. And when he told us to bring swim goggles for the waterfall, we did − and he was right!

We felt as if we had a guardian angel watching over us the entire time. He checked us in for our flights, sent boarding passes, and kept track of what was happening.

When one tour was cancelled, he immediately rescheduled it with another (better) option. If we had any questions or concerns, we could call or email 24/7 and get a reply within 15 minutes.

This was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime, but after returning home, we may just go back again!"

Punta Tombo Reserve is home to the world’s largest colony of Magellanic penguins, giving you the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with over a hundred thousand of these adorable creatures, which are only found on the Falkland Islands and the coasts of Argentina and Chile.

This is a long half-day group tour (the visit to the Punta Tombo Magellanic Penguins reserve lasts 2 hours), but it’s usually combined with at least 1 other tour option in the area making it a full-day tour.

Navigating to Discover the Dazzling Acrobatics of the Panda Dolphin

Prepare to embark on a navigation adventure in the Patagonian Sea, to discover the beautiful black-and-white Panda Dolphins. Known for their playful behavior and electrifying speed, this super cute dolphin is very rare to see, as it is found in two spots on Earth: Patagonia, and near a very remote island in the Indian Ocean.

The Panda Dolphin is very active, and is frequently seen swimming rapidly on the surface and leaping from the water, while surfing the waves created by the fast-moving boats. As they love swimming close to the surface, it’s easy to see them very clearly. They love to surf on breaking waves when very close to the shore, and can perform a variety of acrobatics, including spins and twists.

This is a group tour done on the same day you do your Punta Tombo’s Magellanic Penguins tour.

Transfer in group vehicle to Trelew airport.

(Larchmont, New York, United States)

"We had a fabulous trip, saw amazing scenery, ate delicious food and learned so much about beautiful Argentina. It was the trip of a lifetime and one that our kids (18, 16 and 14) will truly remember."

"Fred planned everything beautifully--he worked with us through an itinerary that would work for our family of 5, booked all the amazing guides, recommended restaurants and coordinated all of the logistics."

"Beyond all of the above, Fred was truly a lifesaver. Our son ended up getting pretty sick and Fred was available 24 hours a day to help us coordinate doctors, thermometers, hotel staff, drivers and translators. He gave us huge peace of mind and truly helped us navigate what was a challenging situation."

TRIP REVIEW OF JONATHAN & LAUREN SHAPIRO AND FAMILY

"We just returned from 2 weeks in Argentina and I can't say enough great things about Fred and the team at Exploration Journeys! We've had friends who have used Fred and they spoke so glowingly about his end-to-end service. We had never been to Latin America before and knew that we needed a guide to help us with planning and execution. It was a no brainer to turn to Fred.

The experience was even better than we ever could have imagined. Fred planned everything beautifully--he worked with us through an itinerary that would work for our family of 5, booked all the amazing guides, recommended restaurants and coordinated all of the logistics. We visited Buenos Aires, El Calafate, Bariloche and Iguazu and everything was absolutely seamless. We had a fabulous trip, saw amazing scenery, ate delicious food and learned so much about beautiful Argentina. It was the trip of a lifetime and one that our kids (18, 16 and 14) will truly remember.

Beyond all of the above, Fred was truly a lifesaver. Our son ended up getting pretty sick and Fred was available 24 hours a day to help us coordinate doctors, thermometers, hotel staff, drivers and translators. He gave us huge peace of mind and truly helped us navigate what was a challenging situation. My husband and I now joke that we need a Fred in our life for absolutely everything!"

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

Our speedboat will zip the waters of the Iguazu River, and approach the falls, getting right inside the mist formed by their thunderous splash!

You’ll be thoroughly splashed by the mist of the falls, as you take in the water’s imposing roar. This ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and Three Musketeers falls. The high point of this experience will be without a doubt, being showered under the mist of the San Martin Falls; the second strongest falls in the Iguazu system. Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!

This is a 12-minute group tour and is done on the same day you do the Argentinean side of the falls tour. This tour has an age restriction (click on tour name above for details).

DAY 11: LAST DAY IN IGUAZU

Behold the Breathtaking Panoramic Views of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian Side (private tour)

The Brazilian side offers majestic scenic views of the beauty and entirety of the falls; this is because the Brazilian footbridge lies across the river from the falls, offering a unique perspective and epic scenic views, making the Brazilian side different and absolutely complementary to the experience from the Argentinean side.

This is a half-day private tour.

Walking Among Exotic Birds in the Iguazu Rainforest

You’re about to enter a one-of-a-kind bird sanctuary! Here you’ll find the largest colony of toucans on display in the world, as well as the largest colony of parrots on display in South America, along with 150 different bird species from Brazil and all over the world, many of them endangered.

Located in the midst of the lush tropical rainforest, Foz Tropicana Bird Park is an internationally-recognized rescue and preservation center for endangered birds; and it’s among the most important ones in South America.

In addition to the diversity and beauty of the birds you’ll see, the park itself presents itself as a unique location. It covers nearly 40 acres (16 hectares) of rainforest, so you’re quite literally going to find yourself in the middle of nature as you make your way along the trails!

This visit lasts about 2 hours and is done on the same day you do the Brazilian side of the falls tour.

"We have just returned from a 12-day trip to Argentina over the Christmas holidays, and used Exploration Journeys. BEST DECISION ever! Fred, one of the owners, is simply incredible!"

"We absolutely loved our trip in Argentina - and Fred/Exploration Journeys made it even better!"

"Private transfers via Exploration Journeys were fantastic! The trip was extremely well planned - Fred in constant contact to ensure everything went smoothly."

This was their first trip to Argentina

TRIP REVIEW OF CLAUS & ANIE LENDAL AND FAMILY

"We have just returned from a 12-day trip to Argentina over the Christmas holidays, and used Exploration Journeys. BEST DECISION ever! Fred, one of the owners, is simply incredible!

We are a family of 5, our kids are 23, 20, 17 (and the men in the family are all over 6'). Little did we know that there are no taxis for 5 - and most of the taxis are pretty small. Private transfers via Exploration Journeys were fantastic! The trip was extremely well planned - Fred in constant contact to ensure everything went smoothly.

We spent 2 nights in Buenos Aires, visited the city with Gabriel who was not only nice, but knowledgeable and super engaging. Fred organized a wine tasting before the tango show - amazing! (front row seat, smaller group - very nice!). We then flew to Iguazu (our least favorite part of the trip but still worth seeing). Visited the falls in Brazil, then in Argentina (really worth doing the tour which goes under the falls). Iguazu is rather run down; we were glad we did not stay longer despite the great weather!

We flew on to El Calafate - one of my favorite stops! We loved the "ski resort" feel of the town. Juan our private guide was also amazing; the glacier's 2 hour trek a MUST(Perito Moreno)! (Note: you need to be in relatively good shape to do this). Despite some rain, the entire time in El Calafate was great.

Next step was Ushuaia. Our tour was not exactly what we expected and unfortunately, we could not find a larger vehicle for us that day. So we did continue the trip and it was fine (we went to see the Hidden Lake in a 4x4 with the Argentinian BBQ). This is where Fred shined; despite the fact that we continued our trip, he credited the day back to us since it was not exactly what we had booked and hoped for. His reactiveness and professionalism was amazing.

Finally, our second favorite stop in Argentina was for sure Puerto Madryn - from which we drove 3 hours north one day to Peninsula Valdes to see sea lions & elephant seals (and whales - but we were not in whale seasons). The next day we drove 3 hours south, first to Rawson for a boat tour to see commerson's dolphins then to Punta Tombo to see Magellanic penguin colonies (they had just had their babies - this was truly incredible!). And of course, we saw our fair share of guanacos and so much more wild animals!

The costs of living once in Argentina (and outside of Buenos Aires) is quite cheap. Good bottles of wine for $10 in restaurants; empanadas for lunch at $ 1.00 (kids loved this!). Food is good but lacks in spices - if you like hot sauce - bring some! Remember to ask for salt and pepper (it is rarely on the table). Bring a lot of small change with you - with the current situation in Argentina, we paid mostly in American currency NOTE: Bring $ 5.00 / $ 10.00 / or $ 20.00 - most places will not take $1.00 or higher then $20.00. AND the bills must NOT have any rips or ink stains or anything written on it (they won't take your bills).

We absolutely loved our trip in Argentina - and Fred/Exploration Journeys made it even better!

So if you are planning a packed holidays in a rather short time - book with Exploration Journeys!"

TRIP REVIEW OF NATASHA & ARUN GARG AND FAMILY

"Truly one of the best vacations we have ever had. Our latest trip with Exploration Journeys to Argentina was all one could expect. It was amazing, incredible and spectacular!!! We were travelling to South America for the first time and Exploration Journeys did an outstanding job of taking care of us!

Fred worked with us and put together a wonderful, fun, and exciting trip based on our interests and time frame. Fred took care of every detail of the trip with utmost professionalism, quick responses, and flawless organization. It felt nice to be taken care of so well. We did not have to worry about anything but enjoy the beautiful country and its people.

We loved watching the Panda dolphins and walking among the Magellanic Penguins, two of my most favorites in Punta Tombo. We enjoyed the majestic Iguazu Falls and the thrilling boat ride…and certainly the city of soccer and Tango, Buenos Aires!

Fred provided us with a travel booklet which is something out of this world. We took it wherever we went. It provided us with all the information that we needed to be better prepared for the trip. For example, taxi information to restaurant recommendation, to clothing needed based on each excursion…etc. The tour guides, drivers, hotels, and restaurant recommendations were of highest standard. All our tour guides, Claudia, Alex, Graciela, Anna were exceptional. They were friendly, fun, generous, and extremely knowledgeable about all the points of interest we visited.

Thank you Fred and your awesome team for making our journey a memorable one. We will return back again to enjoy the other parts of Argentina with you. Thank you Fred…you are the best!!!!"

This cosmopolitan, vibrant, and sophisticated city, commonly called the “Paris of Latin America,” is the best place in the world to enjoy a first-class tango show and to eat some of the tastiest steak, accompanied by celebrated Argentine Malbec wine.

(staying for 2 nights, with 4 tours included)

Flight arrival in Iguazu.

Depending on your flight arrival time you will have time to go first to your hotel or you will be taken directly to your tour and then to your hotel.

Behold the Breathtaking Panoramic Views of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian Side (private tour)

With 80% of the falls located on the Argentine side, it is only from the Brazilian side that one can see almost all of them at once, in full, breathtakingly panoramic views.

The Brazilian side offers majestic scenic views of the beauty and entirety of the falls; this is because the Brazilian footbridge lies across the river from the falls, offering a unique perspective and epic scenic views, making the Brazilian side different and absolutely complementary to the experience from the Argentinean side.

This is a half-day private tour.

Walking Among Exotic Birds in the Iguazu Rainforest

You’re about to enter a one-of-a-kind bird sanctuary! Here you’ll find the largest colony of toucans on display in the world, as well as the largest colony of parrots on display in South America, along with 150 different bird species from Brazil and all over the world, many of them endangered.

Located in the midst of the lush tropical rainforest, Foz Tropicana Bird Park is an internationally-recognized rescue and preservation center for endangered birds; and it’s among the most important ones in South America. You’ll find yourself side by side a myriad of exotic birds, in the three walk-in aviaries, where you’ll have the opportunity to have an up-close and personal experience with amazingly colorful parrots and Toco Toucans, among many other birds… all of them right next to you or even flying over your head!

In addition to the diversity and beauty of the birds you’ll see, the park itself presents itself as a unique location. It covers nearly 40 acres (16 hectares) of rainforest, so you’re quite literally going to find yourself in the middle of nature as you make your way along the trails!

This visit lasts about 2 hours and is done on the same day you do the Brazilian side of the falls tour.

DAY 3: IGUAZU

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

A Speedboat Adventure Up-Close the Iguazu Falls

Get ready for a fantastic speedboat adventure, enjoying a unique, up-close perspective of the majestic Iguazu Falls. This tour experience makes for a different point of view from what you will have seen from the panoramic boardwalks. Our speedboat will zip the waters of the Iguazu River, and approach the falls, getting right inside the mist formed by their thunderous splash!

You’ll be thoroughly splashed by the mist of the falls, as you take in the water’s imposing roar. This ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and Three Musketeers falls. The high point of this experience will be without a doubt, being showered under the mist of the San Martin Falls; the second strongest falls in the Iguazu system. Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!

This is a 12-minute group tour and is done on the same day you do the Argentinean side of the falls tour. This tour has an age restriction (click on tour name above for details).
