Brazil is not known for subtlety: Its myriad charms confront the visitor — its gorgeous beaches, thumping street parties, the vibrant hum that permeates every aspect of daily life, no matter how mundane. And nowhere is the country’s outsized personality more evident than in its big cities: Rio throbs to the beat of a never-ending party; São Paulo gleams with skyscrapers befitting the continent’s largest metropolis, and Paraty’s colonial center exudes a quiet elegance. But Brazil is big beyond the city limits, too. Out there, you’ll find towering waterfalls, exotic wildlife, and nature as raw as you’ll find on Earth. Introduce yourself to Brazil and prepare to broaden your definition of “stupendous.”

This tour packs as much Brazil as is humanly possible into a rich, well-balanced experience that never feels rushed. In dazzling Rio, star of a million postcards, you’ll discover the bohemian Lapa district at night with a private guide and take to the skies on a private helicopter tour over the stunning Sugar Loaf mountain that dominates the skyline. Later, walk the charming colonial streets of Paraty with your own guide, cruise its islands by schooner, study the intersection of flavor and culture in Brazilian cuisine with a master chef, and explore the dazzling waterfalls of Serra da Bocaina National Park on a private jeep tour. Finally, learn how Brazil came to be on an enlightening visit to São Paulo’s Museu Afro Brasil before getting a good look at awe-inspiring Iguaçú Falls from both sides of the Brazil-Argentina border. The only way to get a more complete appreciation for Brazil would be to live here full-time. ... Show More »

  • Patricia M — May 24, 2019 — South America

    Overall, we were very pleased with the entire experience. Our guides were excellent, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were also amazed as to how well planned the entire trip was and the support we received throughout. For example, the support we received when our flight was delayed was welcomed and greatly appreciated.

  • Lyle I — March 18, 2019 — South America

    Brandi went above and beyond our expectations. This was a bucket list trip for us and it was fabulous. Renee, in Peru, was incredibly attentive and caring. Mariela Zamora was an excellent guide and gave us 110% service. We are very impressed with Kensington and all of their people.

  • Robert S — June 11, 2019 — South America

    This was the second of what will soon be 3 tours with Kensington. The 1st 2 included 17 people. There is absolutely no aspect of the trips that I can find fault with. All the details were carefully dealt with. All of the people from the office to those "on the ground" were professional and pleasant.

  • Lynn N — February 27, 2019 — South America

    Every aspect of our trip to the Galápagos Islands was perfect. Scalesia Lodge and Finch Bay Hotel were both incredible, our excursions were wonderful, our guides were knowledgeable, and our itinerary was planned and executed effortlessly. Best last minute addition: booking a room at the W at the airport in Quito so that we had a comfortable place to nap and relax during our 6-hour layover (especially since our flight back to the States did not depart until 12:45 am).

  • Shelley R — March 24, 2019 — South America

    Kensington Tours planned our trip to Patagonia when we went to visit our daughter in Buenos Aries. Everything worked like clockwork. Flights, transfers and excursions were all well planned with excellent companies and were stress-free. The excursions were varied, and the guides were excellent. Hotels were top notch and very comfortable. This is the second time I have used Kensington to plan a vacation, and they really make it easy. I gave them the places we wanted to visit and our interests and they took it from there. I highly recommend Kensington Tours!

  • Carmen S. — January 20, 2019 — South America

    Thanks to Kensington Tours we had a fabulous, stress free vacation. The Kensington team (Barbara and Jenny) were extremely helpful in helping us decide on sites to visit and planning our airfares connections and always there to timely answer any questions we had. The guides and drivers were always prompt, knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs and we couldn’t asked for a better trip!

  • Gabriele M. — January 10, 2019 — South America

    We had a great time on our trip to Argentina and Chile. The guides were great.

  • Melvin S. — January 31, 2019 — South America

    We enjoyed the experience very much. Our guides in Bogota (Sebastian) and Medellin (Maria) were excellent and very appropriate for those experiences and are highly recommended.

  • Caryl M. — January 07, 2019 — South America

    Sarah Roberts was a joy to work with. She was helpful, responsive and always had a positive can-do attitude. Just fantastic.

  • Ann V. — November 16, 2018 — South America

    It was a trip of a lifetime. Everything worked out perfectly. Thanks so much for all your guidance and help.
