Three things come to mind when one conjures an image of Brazil; the adrenaline pulse of world-famous coastal cities, thundering natural wonders, and small estuaries cutting their way through dense tropical forest. On this trip you will see the true highlights of Rio, Iguassu Falls, and the Amazon jungle.

Rio is your first stop, and a veritable melting pot of European, African and South American history. Walk your way through the social, political and cultural past, and gaze upon modern icons, all with the insight of an expert private guide. Pyramid shaped cathedrals, “Belle Epoque” restaurants, lively boulevard-lined beaches, unparalleled nightlife; you’ll want to take advantage of every minute in Rio de Janeiro.

Be camera-ready as you first approach the falls, where dense vegetation parts to reveal gushing Tarza’s waterfall and pristine swimming holes. Tour both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of Iguassu, and understand why this site is on many a must-see list.

Finally head inland to your remote, stilted jungle lodge. Set amongst pristine rainforest, far away from the buzz of Rio, and the roar of Iguassu, you will find a quiet place populated only by wildlife, and abundant nature. Sunrise canoeing, village hikes, jungle picnics, piranha fishing, alligator spotting, tree climbing, any number of once-in-a-lifetime activities await. ... 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
