Classic Brazil Itineraries

Brazil in 7-10 Days

Brazil is an enormous country. With seven to ten days, it is advised to stick to one broad region, such as the northern area of Brazil or the southern coast. Here are some of the highlights to see in Brazil on a seven to ten day tour:

Day 1-3, Rio de Janeiro: Explore exciting Rio, hike sugarloaf, visit the Christ Redeemer statue on Corcavado Mountain, and enjoy the famous nightlife. Also make sure to visit the beaches that inspired songs, Ipanema and Copacabana. Be careful when traveling in Rio, and always stay with your tour group.

Day 4-5, Paraty: On the way to Iguazu falls you’ll pass through this charming town with beautiful beaches and UNESCO verified colonial architecture.

Day 6-7, Iguazu Falls: Visit iconic Iguazu (or Iguassu) Falls. The thundering waters and surrounding jungle once prompted Eleanor Roosevelt to lament “Poor Niagara!” So you know you’re in for something special. Enjoy the spray and long walk around the falls on paths to see the impressive sight from multiple vantage points.

Luggage Handling and follow up August 2019


Holland America Line Company Reviews

First cruise, ever! We did a land & sea journey to Alaska through Holland America Line. This is not a review of the trip (which was great!) so much as how HAL handled our complaints of damaged luggage. My sister's luggage arrived at our Yukon hotel with the latch broken, her clothes spilling out. She filed a report. We discovered damage to a corner of my husband's luggage at the departing airport. Too late to do a report...but HAL's property claims were wonderful, in particular, Mr. Scott Gerstl, who even called me to clarify details. He was empathetic and kind. We were reimbursed for both pieces of luggage. Read more

3 Star Cruiser Won't Travel On Holland American Anymore. July 2019


Holland America Line Company Reviews

3 Star cruiser will never travel Holland American again. They have really slipped. We were this time on the Maasdam and this ship should be retired as it's old and not kept up. Many cracked and broken windows. One boarded up with plywood. Teak decks needing repair and rust all over the ship. The sliding enclosure over the pool when it opened and closed sounded like the ship was going to come apart. They nickel and dime you now for everything. No connection with ships officers anymore as the Captain is just a bus driver. Rooms small, beds uncomfortable. They've cut back servers which was especially noticeable in the Lido where one person handled 3 stations at certain times meaning long waits. We so loved Holland America in the past but since Carnival bought them they have definitely slipped. Too bad! Read more

Holland America Line Company Reviews

Similar to one of the other reviewers here - I had an obstructed view outside room. The obstruction on the Oosterdam was a lifeboat. Every morning two men came and climbed all over the lifeboat working on it somehow. While I understand the safety of the passengers may depend on the lifeboats being in repair, but for a single woman to have two men climbing around her window caused me to close the drapes every day. I might as well have had an indoor room. Guest services said they would check into it and let me know. They did not. Second visit to Guest Services resulted in again - no action and no response. The third time, I raised my voice in the lobby and requested a manager. They all acted stupid - and perhaps they actually were, but only after all this did I finally demand another room and magically they found one and for the last four days of a 17 day cruise I was happy. I wrote Holland America when I returned and after a week I received a namby pamby response - with not so much as an offer of a discount on the next cruise or a free drink!!! I already have another cruise booked, this one with friends, which is the only reason I'm not cancelling it, but it will be my last with them! Read more

Fantastic trip. Would definitely recommend March 2019


South America Express

Our tour guide Ingrid was brilliant. She was knowledgable, calm, very well organised and all round lovely!
We spent the right amount of time in each place (personally maybe slightly less time in Santiago and more time in Bolivia, but that’s just my choice).

Would definitely recommend this trip.

Argentina: Wine and Waterfalls

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day's itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful.
