- This was a fantastic holiday and I would thoroughly recommend it. Having read some of the reviews I was unsure what to expect. Yes, there is a lot of travelling, but having gained an understanding of just how big Brazil is, there is no way you could see so much of the country without these flights. In fact, the trip was flexible enough to make the most of the travel days; by rearranging our tour of Salvador we gained a day at the Turtle Sanctuary and by visiting Sugar Loaf mountain the afternoon we arrived in Rio, we were able to see more of the sites on a full day tour the next day. There were so many highlights on this trip – the Rainforest (and the pink river dolphins!), canoeing along the Amazon, wildlife spotting in the Pantanal, the amazing Iguacu falls – definitely worth seeing the Argentine side, and not to mention Rio! Our tour leader Blanca was brilliant, very enthusiastic and great fun, and the local tour guides were also very good. This was my first Explore trip, but it definitely won’t be my last.
