My wife and I traveled to Buenos Aires, Iguassu Falls, and Rio de Janerio April 2-13. These travel agents were wonderful to work with. They were responsive prior to the trip, helpful in planning the trip, and in touch throughout the trip. Everything went seamlessly. We had transportation at every step, the guides were friendly and informative, and the hotels were top of the line. This is the third or fourth time we have used travel agents through Zicasso, and each time has been a great experience. I you like using local agents instead of your hometown agency, Zicasso is the way to ensure that you are getting reliable, quality agencies. In that respect, this travel company is an agency in Argentina and Brazil, I highly recommend.
Buenos Aires is a beautiful city with wide avenues and Parisian architecture everywhere. By itself, the beauty of the city is worth a trip. But, we took a tango lesson and visited a milango. That was great fun. Touring the chic Palermo areas and enjoying great restaurants and bars was enjoyable. We attended a professional tango show that was neat. The Alvear hotel is one of the nicest 5 star hotels I have ever visited. But it is hard to top the visit to Iguassu Falls. The falls are truly astounding. Be sure to take the boat ride under the falls. The hotel there is also 5 star. In Rio, the classics such as Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Tijunca Forest, and Ipanema Beach are all they are reputed to be (the girls on the beach do not seem able to find bathing suits that fit). But, I particularly enjoyed a tour of a Favela (Vidigal) and hiked Two Brothers Mountain. Don't let anyone tell you that is too dangerous. The Botanical Garden in Rio is better than the ones we have visited in other cities; really impressive. The Copacabana resort continues to be a wonderful hotel.
I would plan two full days at Iguassu Falls instead of 1 1/2. I would do the one day polo match and lesson in Buenos Aires (we got rained out). I would visit a milango in Buenos Aires that is less traditional and more modern.
