1 Arrive In Manaus, Brazil
Welcome to Brazil where you will be met by a Globus representative. (D)
2 Manaus - Amazon Jungle
Today your "Meeting of the Waters" tour passes the British-built Customs House and floating port. CRUISE along the chocolatecoloured Rio Negro to its confluence with the yellow-gray Rio Solim?es, where the two rivers form the mighty Amazon. For four miles, the differently coloured bodies of water flow side by side and never mix! Explore a JUNGLE ISLAND (water levels permitting) with fascinating native flora and fauna before arriving at the Ecopark Jungle Lodge in the Amazon rainforest. (B/L/D)
3 Amazon Jungle
Accompanied by a Naturalist, enjoy a WALK to see the flora and fauna that thrive in the Amazon. After lunch, sail up the river to an AMAZON VILLAGE to learn about their traditions, costumes, and culture. Try your hand at piranha fishing! Later, visit the MONKEY JUNGLE RESERVE, where researchers work to rehabilitate primates like spider, squirrel, woolly, and capuchin monkeys and reintroduce them to the jungle. This evening, venture back out on a canoe with your Naturalist to appreciate the sounds of the jungle at night, with the possibility to spot caimans (or other night creatures). (B/L/D)
4 Amazon Jungle - Rio De Janeiro
This morning, depart the Ecopark for a guided sightseeing of Manaus to view vestiges of its glory days during the rubber boom. Visit the OPERA HOUSE and a bustling LOCAL MARKET. Continue to the airport for your flight to Rio and an overnight. (B)
5 Rio De Janeiro
Today is free in Rio until meeting your Tour Director this afternoon for a drive along famous Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches to the base of 1,300-foot (396 metre) high SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN. Ascend by cable car to its summit, where you can savour spectacular vistas of the city. Next, toast the start of a memorable holiday from atop Sugar Loaf Mountain with caipirinhas, a favourite Brazilian cocktail, during a welcome COCKTAIL PARTY. (B)
6 Rio De Janeiro
Today, visit the statue of Christ the Redeemer crowning CORCOVADO MOUNTAIN, a rounded peak rising 2,300 feet(701 metres)from the bay below. Take the scenic cog railway ride to its top, where a 360-degree panorama affords sweeping views. Proceed to bustling downtown Rio. View the Sambodromo and visit the CATHEDRAL. This afternoon, you may wish to join an optional trip into a local favela to see where 20% of Rio's population lives. Visits include a community centre and a school. This evening, it's off to a CHURRASCARIA for a feast of barbecued meats marinated and roasted over charcoal in true Brazilian style. (B/D)
7 Rio De Janeiro
A full day at leisure to savour Rio. Relax on one of the world-famous beaches or take advantage of the world-class shopping or fine dining. Alternatively, you may choose to join an optional trip to historic Petropolis, a mountain resort and the former summer palace of Emperor Dom Pedro II. (B)
8 Rio De Janeiro - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Fly to Buenos Aires, proud capital of the vast country that occupies most of the southern part of the continent. After arriving at your central hotel, an orientation walk acquaints you with the "Paris of South America" and its wide boulevards and outdoor cafes. Spend an evening at leisure. (B)
9 Buenos Aires
Your included sightseeing this morning starts in La Boca, a colourful district and site of the city's first port. Take a short walking TOUR of this unique neighbourhood at the mouth of the river and then on to San Telmo, famous for its late-colonial buildings and as a popular gathering spot for artists. At the Plaza de Mayo, see La Casa Rosada (the President's Pink House) and the METROPOLITAN CATHEDRAL/ which houses San Martin's Mausoleum. Drive past the ornate Colon Opera House before reaching RECOLETA CEMETERY, burial site of Eva Peron. After an afternoon at leisure, top off the evening at a famous TANGO CLUB. Start with a DANCE LESSON, followed by dinner of Argentine steaks and other local specialties, and end with a show featuring flawless performances of Latin America's most sensuous dance-the Tango! (B/D)
10 Buenos Aires
Enjoy a full day at leisure, with an optional excursion to the pampas (grasslands). Experience the atmosphere of Argentine country life as you visit an estancia (ranch). Get acquainted with the lifestyle of the gauchos and enjoy a barbecue lunch and the warm hospitality of your hosts before returning to the city. (B)
11 Buenos Aires - Iguassu Falls
This morning, fly to IGUASSU FALLS. The spectacle of this 2-milewide torrential downpour-with some cataracts as high as 250 feet-is nothing short of hypnotic. The clouds of spray, the incessant roar, and the surrounding luxuriant tropical growth make this an unforgettable natural wonder. Upon arrival, journey to the Argentinean side of the falls and take the ECOLOGICAL JUNGLE TRAIN for a bird's-eye view from the catwalks perched over part of the Devil's Throat, where 14 falls drop more than 300 feet into the Devil's Gorge below. Continue into Brazil's side of Iguassu Falls, your home for the night. (B/D)
12 Iguassu Falls - Lima, Peru
Today is dedicated to exploring the Brazilian side of the FALLS from a completely different vantage point than in Argentina. A walk along the pathway at the base of the falls takes you into the Devil's Throat Canyon, with spectacular panoramic views of many of the 275 cataracts that make up Iguassu Falls. Have a late lunch or early dinner before flying to Lima, Peru. (B/L)
13 Lima
Your city sightseeing TOUR focuses on Lima's rich colonial history as well as the modern city. See the 18th-century SAN FRANCISCO MONASTERY with its unique cloisters, Government Palace, and the cathedral situated around the vast Plaza de Armas. Tonight, visit the LARCO HERRERA MUSEUM, which houses the largest private collection of Pre-Columbian Peruvian art in the world. Enjoy dinner at the museum's restaurant. (B/D)
14 Lima - Cusco - Sacred Valley
Fly to Cusco, the impressive Andean city that was once the capital of the Inca Empire. Head into the Sacred Valley of the Incas and visit the semi-circular KENKO Amphitheatre with its stone altars and labyrinth of passages and see the ancient site of Puca Pucara. Also, in the Sacred Valley, experience an El Pago a la Tierra, or MOTHER EARTH CEREMONY, performed by a local shaman. These ceremonies thanking Mother Earth and asking for good health and safe travels have been practiced in Peru since before the arrival of the Incas. Continue to PISAC, an old mountain village where you will have free time to shop for local wares, such as alpaca sweaters and blankets, jewellery, or handpainted ornamental dishes and vases. Stay in the Sacred Valley tonight, with dinner at the hotel. (B/D)
15 Sacred Valley - Machu Picchu
This morning, visit the Inca Fortress of OLLANTAYTAMBO, followed by the opportunity to visit a HOME, meet some of the locals, and experience their way of life in the Sacred Valley. Then, board the Vistadome TRAIN for a scenic journey through the lush Urubamba Valley. Upon arrival, ascend the mountainside to legendary MACHU PICCHU, the "Lost City of the Incas." Your Local Guide will introduce this intact fortress with its temple remains, holy houses, and mile-long aqueduct, and will bring you closer to the mysteries still hidden in these amazing structures. Tonight, learn how to make the perfect Pisco Sour at a Peruvian cooking demonstration before your included dinner. (B/D)
16 Machu Picchu - Cusco
A morning at leisure in Machu Picchu allows you to wake up early to see the sunrise over MACHU PICCHU with your second included entrance to the ruins. After lunch, return to the Sacred Valley by TRAIN and continue to Cusco. (B/L)
17 Cusco
On your guided sightseeing tour of Cusco today, learn more about the Inca and Spanish influence. Begin at the heart of Cusco in the Plaza de Armas (main square), with a visit to the imposing CATHEDRAL/ where construction began in 1550 and was finally completed 100 years later. Continue to Koricancha and the SANTO DOMINGO MONASTERY, and see how the two sites have become one. The Temple of the Sun at Koricancha was once the most important Inca site, dedicated to the worship of the Sun. The walls, altars, and decorations were all said to be covered in gold-until the Spaniards looted the temple and then built the contrasting Baroque Santo Domingo Monastery on top of the temple's foundations. Also, visit the TEMPLE OF SACSAYHUAMAN, perched on a hillside overlooking Cusco. It remains unfathomable how and when this fortress of gigantic stones-with some blocks weighing more than 350 tons-was built. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure to explore on your own. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a festive farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B/D)
18 Cusco - Lima
A short morning flight returns you to Lima. For a special treat, make a stop at a LOCAL PERUVIAN FOOD MARKET to get a real taste of the life of the local people. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore on your own. (B)
19 Lima
Your tour ends with breakfast this morning. (B)
