I had a fantastic time on the tour, due not only to the amazing things I saw but the people I was on tour with including the tour leader Rani. The atmosphere for the majority of the trip was great, and I enjoyed meeting new people and hearing about their travelling experiences, but it has also just added more to my 'to-do list'!!

The trip was just incredible. The cities we visited provided a good glimpse of Argentina and Brazil. Paraty was by far my favorite place. The boat tour to the different beaches was super fun.
