Buenos Aires Sightseeing Tour

Buenos Aires, Argentina

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Good tour
We got lucky as this tour was on Sunday morning and ended at San Telmo neighbourhood during the once-per-week street market....from there we had to take taxi back to our hotel as tour did not provide return to hotels

Plataforma Samba Show in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Show was good but the dinner was NOT at the theatre...it was at the crowded churasco restaurant....make sure not to open the wine bottle which was at the table ready for dinner... ask for a wine list and you can find better and less pricey wines.....the tour included food ONLY and they charge for any liquids....they were about 10 people ( all strangers ) in our group at the table and we noticed that waiter avoided bringing better beef cuts ( filet mignon, etc ) to our table while they served other non-group tables....another rip-off of tourists as you pay the same price

Corcovado Mountain and Christ Redeemer Statue Half-Day Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Itinerary is good but you should plan on doing this in the morning because on the sunny day you will be facing sun taking picture of Christ
Other than some commentary in English you may be better off taking taxi from the hotel as it is very easy to board train and wonder around the statue on your own...we had to wait extra 20 minutes for some people from our group who missed the return train....We have checked at our hotel and could arrange same tour for much less

Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Santiago, Chile

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Good tour but could be coupled with Santiago sightseeing by adding an extra hour
We were told that tour did not include a stop at winery ( which we believe was advertised ) but the driver, after agreement of other ( 2 ) tourists stopped at the winery along the highway to Valparaiso.
The selection of lunch in Vina del Mar was a ripoff....you would be better off to eat on your own ( since lunch was not included )...The restaurant just off the beach ( with hundreds of small flags displayed outside ) was very expensive, menus were in Spanish only and staff did not speak English...Even our driver went to eat elsewhere
