Globus South American Odyssey with Peru(SGE)

22 days from Rio de Janeiro to Lima 
Triple the sights, sounds, and sizzle on this South American vacation through three of the continent’s most scintillating countries. As you samba through Brazil, tango through Argentina, and cueca through Chile, your toes will meet the liveliest of dance floors, the sandiest of beaches, and the most storied of streets. Guided visits to the vibrant cities of Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Santiago are perfectly balanced with quieter excursions to lush rainforests, chic waterfront resorts in Patagonia, and even a rural Argentine ranch where you can saddle a horse and be a beret-wearing gaucho for the day. Traditional open-fire barbecues and crispy empanadas will satisfy your cowboy cravings throughout your South American journey, while witnessing both sides of thundering Iguassu Falls, cruising Patagonian fjords beneath the soaring peaks of the Andes, and visiting Chile’s renowned wine country will quench your thirst for scenic adventure.

Your South American vacation wouldn’t be complete without sipping a Pisco sour and drinking in the wonder of Machu Picchu. Add Peru to your South American tour to see the ruins of the Lost City and the cultural uprising of “it” cities Lima And Cusco.
