This was the third Tauck Tour my wife and I have taken. The prior tours were in Tanzania/Kenya and China. Our South American tour was excellent in all respects. We are left with great lifetime memories of our first trip to South America. Our Tauck Tour Director did an outstanding job all along the way.

Most Memorable Moment:

Travel through the Patagonia region and visits to many great sites, including Iguazú Falls, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro were among the highlights. Viewed from above, Rio has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Loved the itinerary, the food, our guide and MOST of the accommodations. The Alvear Palace was not up to the standards we expect from Tauck. The decor was tired, as though it needed serious updating. Also, and maybe more importantly, the service was disorganized and agonizingly slow.

Most Memorable Moment:

Hard to choose between Llao Llao and Iguazu Falls. Loved them both.
