Wines and Cultures of South America: Chile, Argentina, Uruguay & Brazil

Delve into Latin America’s finest on our delectable 15-day Wines and Cultures of South America adventure. This whirlwind trip through Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil will introduce you to South America’s irresistible rhythms, traditions, and tastes. Beginning in the Andean city of Santiago and wrapping up on the Brazilian beach of Copacabana, you’ll get up close with cowboy culture, learn to dance the sensual tango, and be swept away by Brazil’s vibrant carnival pageantry.

Valparaíso

Embark on a full-day exploration of quirky Valparaíso, one of Chile’s most important seaports and its second-largest city.

Museum of Colchagua

Visit the Museum of Colchagua, which houses the largest collection of pre-Columbian art in Chile.

Santa Cruz Wine Country

Visit a local winery, where we’ll discover the region’s fine vintages as the sun sets over the vineyards. Our winery experience includes a presentation about the region's soil and climate, the history of wine, and the wine-making process. We’ll also savor an included tasting of the winery's offerings, including Carménère, a traditional Chilean grape. Our tour continues with a cable car ride to Cerro Shaman for stunning views of the valley and vineyards.

Learn the Tango in Buenos Aires

The Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires is home to over ten million people and considered one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. When you visit Buenos Aires with Vantage, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to tango during a private lesson with professional dancers. You’ll also take in a fiery tango show, complete with colorful dancers and the passionate sounds of tango music.

Café Tortoni

Enjoy lunch at the famous Café Tortoni. The quintessential Porteño café, Tortoni was founded in 1858; its majestic ambiance, intricate moldings, and marble-topped counters have beckoned artists and scholars alike for over a century.

Iguassu Falls

A highlight of your adventure to South America is your visit to this thundering and magnificent natural wonder from both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of the falls.

Rio de Janeiro

Located in a beautiful natural setting, Rio de Janeiro is tropical, musical, and spectacular. See this coastal city from two amazing vantage points: from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain — the granite peak that overlooks the city — and from the top of Corcovado Mountain, site of the huge Christ the Redeemer statue.

Explore Montevideo's Historic Gems

Discover Montevideo's monuments, parks, and gardens today on a walking tour of the Old City, then board a bus to visit the Cathedral, and Constitution, Independence Squares, and other monuments. We’ll also view the Congress Building, an immense structure that is the pride of Uruguay. We’ll also ride past El Prado, a lovely neighborhood and home to one of the oldest parks in the city.

Discover Buenos Aires

Your Buenos Aires adventure features a city tour that includes the Plaza de Mayo, the Casa Rosada, and La Boca, a colorful and lively neighborhood. You'll also learn how to tango during a private lesson, followed by dinner and a fiery tango performance at El Viejo Almacen, the oldest tango hall in Buenos Aires.

Marco Barrales, Adventure Leader, South America

Marco describes himself as “one who has learned and truly believes that I have only one chance to satisfy my travelers, therefore I focus on detail and personalized attention.” You’ll appreciate all the little details Marco shares that enrich your South America vacation — his favorite Chilean wines, how to choose a good maté cup, the nuanced flavor of palm tree honey, the best photo spots at Iguassu Falls. Born in Santiago, Chile, Marco studied Linguistics and English Teaching at university and is a certified English-Spanish Interpreter. In his spare time, he loves dancing, swimming, and movies.
