Classic Brazil

14 Day Tour of Brazil  |  2 Departures  |  Max Group Size: 16  |  Price £3,499 per person

Welcome to the largest country in Latin America, and undoubtedly one of the most rhythmic! Brazil dances to a tune of outstanding variety, with vibrant and pulsating metropolises, wild rainforests, thundering waterfalls, abundant wetlands, colonial towns almost frozen in time and tropical palm-fringed beaches all co-existing in this utterly captivating country.

Our Classic Brazil escorted small group tour will take you to one of South America's most iconic and intoxicating cities: the buzzing Rio de Janeiro. You'll visit the incredible sites of Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, not to mention two of the world’s most famous beaches, as you explore and fall in love with this exhilarating city, the capital of samba. But Brazil does nature just as well as it does cities… You'll be spellbound by the mighty Iguazu Falls with its thunderous cascades set amidst truly resplendent and lush forests, and of course, home to the most incredible biological diversity, you will have an abundance of opportunities to witness the magic of Brazilian wildlife in the mighty Amazon Rainforest. The tour finishes with two relaxing days in one of Brazil’s colonial gems – charming Paraty, with its most spectacular of settings: an exquisitely preserved colonial centre caressed by a blue ocean and adorned by mountains with lush vegetation.

Brazil and its many wonders await you, and our Classic Brazil escorted small group tour is the best introduction to this varied and captivating country.
