We visited 6 different places. In Argentina, Buenos Aires, Bariloche in Patagonia, then Mendoza including a day trip to Aconcagua. Then Iguazu falls, both the Argentinian and Brazilian side of the Falls. In Brazil, Rio and a jungle lodge on the Rio Negro (Amazon) 3 hours outside of Manaus. Our travel specialist at this South America travel agency spent a lot of time with me organizing the trip, picking hotels, deciding on activities. We had a good mix of planned activities and free time. The private guides and tours that our agency arranged for us were great. Our agent was always available if we had any issues or questions - very responsive and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this company for a South American trip.
Everyplace was different from the other, and they were all great, so it is impossible to pick the most memorable. Iguazu Falls have to be seen to be believed. And Rio is an unbelievably lively city. But every place and everyone we met were very memorable.
We spent a lot of time in airports and on airplanes, especially since there were few direct flights in Argentina. I wish we could have timed the flights better so we did not spend so many hours traveling. Also, some hotels only took US dollars for meals and drinks, which negated the savings of the Argentinian peso. I think we missed out on the group tours, where we were the only English speakers, as the guides spent most of their time explaining things in Spanish (understandable). I would do all private tours next time if feasible.
