I am very happy with this trip! I am glad I did all the countries I did. There were people on this tour who were only with us for just Peru or parts of Peru and other people who only did Argentina and Brazil. I would recommend to do the whole 25days! Which was a bit hard with people coming and going throughout tour.
I loved Peru. The country is beautiful, the people are very friendly and I felt very safe! Peru has so many very cool things to offer like Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, sacred valley and all the amazing ruins.
Argentina and Brazil are very different countries from Peru but each special in there own ways. Iguassu falls are beautiful on both Argentina and Brazil side. I took a helicopter over the falls, which rocked then took a speed boat up to the falls. Two very cool perspectives!
On a free day in Argentina we went to Uruguay. It was a disappointment from contiki as it was offered as an optional activity to us, but when we got there after Peru contiki got rid of it. Our tour manager assisted us in going to Uruguay, and I am glad I went. It is a beautiful country and only and hour ferry from Buenos Aires.
Buzios, Brazil is a nice little beach town we all enjoyed. And being in Rio de Janeiro was awesome. Hang gliding off a mountain, seeing the largest favela in Rio, and being p lose to the Christ Redeemer statue all made Rio awesome. Not to mention the beaches.
And of course if you like to party this trip offers you great partying. From bars in Peru to a nightclub in Buenos aires that holds 5000 people to a party in the favela with the locals in Rio.
Any trip can have some issues and mix ups as this trip did, but overall I recommend this tour. It was a good was to travel these countries and feel safe.
