The largest of all the Latin American countries, Brazil covers nearly half the entire continent of South America. The Amazon River, running across the entire width of Brazil, is the world's largest river in terms of volume. As it thunders towards the Atlantic Ocean, the Amazon passes through the largest rainforest in the world, many tracts of which are still unexplored and home to the greatest number of biological organisms on earth. Further south are the Iguazu falls, the most voluminous waterfalls in the world. Lying on the borders of Brazil and Argentina, the colossal cascades are perhaps the most amazing site on the continent.

Tour Review: starstarstarstar

Dear Jim,

Thank you for your interest :)

We had a marvelous trip. Everything went according to plan, and the various guides and transports were there according to the plan - always. A few comments on the various events, which may be useful for you in planning further trips:

The sightseeing and the hike were both very pleasant, with excellent guides, although the sightseeing was somewhat reduced since half of Rio was closed for traffic due to the carnival.

Two nights in a row at the Sambadrome was too much, at least for people at our age... After the first night we were very pleased, but exhausted. So we disposed of the tickets to the second night through the hotel reception.

The visit to Iguacu was very successful. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable, and the falls and their surroundings were marvelous! Nice hotel and room.

We loved Ilha Grande and Sugu Mini Resort. Very comfortable, with a professional and friendly staff. A good little restaurant, with a somewhat limited menu.

We are very satisfied with the trip, all the planned assistance and of course with the very professional and close follow up from yourself. Thank you again!

All the best from testimonials Berit and Eivind
