In addition to beautiful scenery, you’ll also experience the vibrant cities-Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, and Lima-and enjoy a guided sightseeing tour in each city. A highlight of any trip to Rio is the Christ the Redeemer statue, the 98-foot statue of Jesus that was elected a New Seven Wonders of the World.
