- I just got back from the Argentina-Brazil trip and had a great time. I found the trip to be well organised but very flexible, so I had all my travel and accommodation and transfers booked, but lots of free time to do my own thing and eat where I wanted. Our tour guide Diego was excellent, full of local knowledge and could get the answer to any questions we had. The 'optional' extra side trips were generally good value and well organised. I thought the first hotel we had in Buenos Aires (Castelar) had a great location, but it was very cramped in the room size and definitely past it's sell by date. But, in fairness, location was great. We packed a huge amount in, a lot of it on the 'flexible days' so not due to Explore. But we did have that flexibility to do our own thing, which was great. Highlights? So many.... Top five - Recoleta and BA city walking tour, seeing open air local tango in Plaza Dorrego, Iguassu Falls, The favela tour in Rio, and walking along Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. No lowlights really - great trip, loved it.
