South America Vacations

Traveling to countries like Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, our South America tours will introduce you to ancient civilizations, dazzling cities and time-honored crafts. See lush rain forests, fjords and towering waterfalls, or observe feathered macaws or penguin colonies. Many itineraries are designed as regional discoveries that visit the major cities in several countries, while others focus on one country in depth. Several of our trips utilize multiple modes of transportation, such as motorcoach travel or intra-tour flights. You also can hop from island to island in the Galapagos in a comfortable cruise ship or sail down the mighty Amazon River.

A tour director accompanies the group, speaking about the native cultures, traditions, history and sights along the way. Learn about the ancient Incas in Peru, where Machu Picchu -- the "Lost City of the Incas" -- is a prime attraction on tours. In Argentina, you might meet a gaucho, a South American cowboy and symbol of the country's national pride. If you schedule your trip accordingly, you can check out the festivities at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Learn how to dance the tango in Buenos Aires, sample the wines of Chile or watch the weavers of Taquile Island at work. Some itineraries offer adventurous options for the active traveler, like hiking or kayaking.
