First trip with Contiki and definitely not impressed. Let's start off by saying there was very little transportation provided by Contiki. Besides Iguassu your pretty much ubering and using taxis the whole trip. Even on the last dinner there was not transportation provided and we had to take the public bus which of course all of this is coming out of your pocket which eventually adds up. The "nightlife" that is stated was not what i was expecting. The tour manager had no options and in Buenos Aires took us to a nightclub that seemed like it was for crackheads. Not to mention me and my friend who booked the trip together were left behind with no notification and did not get a response until hours later. In Rio, being a party scene city it was the same. The small group we had was lousy and didn't even want to go out once again when I asked tour manager for suggestions he only had knowledge of one nightclub which he probably knew of because it was close to the hotel. Definitely not the best club either. The breakfast served besides Iguassu was not the best either. The hotel in Rio does not have a beachfront location like it is stated. False advertisement , the hotel isn't even facing the beach. Its about three blocks away and you have a view of a building in front. In conclusion, for what the trip costs it is not worth it. Rio should be extended there was not enough time to explore enough. Trip definitely needs more improvement in various areas.

I thought that the purchase of this trip was simple. However the dissemination of information after one has booked was inconsistent between what was mailed and what was communicated via phone.

This 3 star review is mostly due to the ineffective tour manager. As someone stated earlier, he was more of a "friend" than a leader. He verbalized several times that we should make "his life easier" by being patient with him. He could not command a group nor efficiently collect add-on money for excursions. He misspoke several times, i.e. giving incorrect directions, misquoting prices, misquoting times, literally anything and everything. Aside from the tour manager, I would have given this tour a 4, they need to improve the inclusions on this trip. At least one more day in Rio would have been ideal, there's not enough time spent there. I stayed 4 extra nights to take advantage of the beaches! This trip wouldn't have been the same without Iguazu, the perfect amount of time is spent there. I didn't leave there feeling like I didn't get to see enough. Oh, also note they removed the favela tour as an optional add-on

Inclusions, itinerary, and trip Manager/customer experience did not reflect my expectations and experience on previous trips for this price point.

If you’re planning on doing this trip, I would highly advise planning ahead for the Buenos Aires portion of the trip. Considering most people don’t do the Contiki planned Tigre trip (go to Tigre on your own time in an Uber, it’s WAY cheaper) or the polo match (also can be booked for a cheaper price with an outside party), the second and third day are free. So plan what you would like to do for those two days! We went to Tigre, did the Argentina Experience with the group (highly recommend), and spent a day in Uruguay in the town of Colonia (also recommend). Unless you really make an effort, due to a lack of together time, you won’t be completely familiar with your group the first three days. It’s not until the fourth day that the Contiki factor kicks in and your together time during the Brazil portion of the trip allows you to make more friends. The Brazil portion of the trip is amazing and action packed. I would however recommend staying a day or two longer in Rio. There’s a lot to do and you won’t be able to check off your entire list in your few days with Contiki. Also, due to safety reasons, we weren’t able to do the Favella tour with Contiki. A lot of the group end up doing the tour with an outside party called Be a Local. If you feel comfortable enough, do the tour with Be a Local. It’s a great experience.

This particular trip needed to be more organized. I felt like with precious Contiki trips I knew what was going to happen and I was able to choose what to do beforehand but with this one I felt like I was not sure what was going to happen.

The trip was very unorganized and not worth the stress of going along with the tour. You would be better off to plan the trip yourself. Confusion and disorientation was a common theme among travellers. You would save money and have more time to do what you want if you do not use contiki. And although there was free time with optional excursions for a cost, a lot of the added excursions you paid for came with extra hidden costs such as transportation, and non refundable deposits (hang gliding). Hang gliding in particular had a deposit which was written down as $R 40 but when we arrived we were told $R 50. Also, if you are paying $100-150 USD for something you would not expect to also pay for a taxi or Uber to get to the excursion. On one of the day sheets provided by the contiki trip manager the transportation was highlighted as an inclusion. As if we should be excited that we got a ride to where we were going.. One of the excursions should be removed altogether (bike ride to Tigre in Buenos Aires). Not one person I talked to enjoyed that experience and no one thought it was worth the time or money. Also the hang gliding in Rio de Janeiro should have been set up with better expectations. The excursion took the entire day even though we were told it would take a few hours. I understand weather conditions were out of the people’s control but if I knew the potential wait I may have chosen to skip it. And the fact that the organization kept saying that if we didn’t fly that day they would hold our spot for 6 months was ridiculous. As if we could just hop on a plane or planes and be back.. Also did not like how the included dinners had limited options and anything additional we had to pay for. I have heard good things about contiki tours in Europe but because this was my first experience I don’t know if I will be using the company again or if I will be suggesting it to family or friends. Throughout the tour I heard various complaints about the overall quality from many people about the accommodation (especially Tribeca hotel in Buenos Aires and Royalty Rio in Rios de Janeiro), time management, excursions, inclusions etc. I tried to stay positive but honestly I agreed with most, if not all of the complaints. If I knew what I know now I would have never used Contiki for this trip because I truly feel it was a waste of my time and money.

I was so happy that Contiki was able to offer a trip to Brazil and Argentina and get the opportunity to explore places I only dreamed of visiting. The add-on excursions were pricey but worth going to. One issue I found during the tour was the transportation. I was not expecting to get around by Uber or taxi to most places and it did start to add up after a while. Aside from that, it's a great experience and our Trip Manager Joel, worked very hard to make sure we were happy and gave us plenty of options for places to go and explore. I was happy with making the decision to go on this tour. I can't wait to travel again!

Unorganized, both the tour and the guide. Guide was more of a friend than a guide. Hotels were subpar at best. Biking excursion in Argentina was a waste of time and money. 2 HOUR train ride for almost 100usd, that's ridiculous. The fact that you try to swindle more money for the transportation to the airport is shocking. An Uber for the fraction of the cost! Everything was so rushed! From iguazzu falls, Christ the Redeemer, sugarloaf etc. We shouldn't be rushed to see things that we paid thousands of dollars to travel to see. Hang gliding!***** It needs to be communicated that it can take all day. Be honest and transparent that it's weather dependent and can literally take you from 9am-5pm. Less time should have been spent in Argentina and more in Brazil. There were too many times where we had to take a taxi or an Uber to get to our activities. I've only heard great things about Europe contiki, but i would never recommend South America contiki to anyone.
