Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires

This private luxury tour features in-depth touring of two of South America's most exciting cities: Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.

Begin in Rio de Janeiro, the most beautiful city in Brazil. With your private guide and driver, experience the best of Rio's vibrant culture and spectacular landscapes. Venture up Corcovado Mountain for panoramic views over the city. Stroll through the bohemian Santa Teresa neighborhood. Browse local art galleries and visit noted museums. See the highlights of the historic center of Rio. Experience samba at an atmospheric local club. Visit the lush botanical gardens. One day, learn about Brazilian cuisine during a private cooking class, shop for local fashions in top boutiques or enjoy a bicycle tour along Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Another day, if desired, take the cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain or visit an NGO to learn about life in a local favela (shantytown). Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional touring in and around Rio upon request, such as taking private samba lessons or seeing iconic buildings designed by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Next, fly to Buenos Aires, one of the most sophisticated and culturally fascinating cities in South America. With your own private guide and driver, visit the city's most evocative neighborhoods such as San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo and Puerto Madero, and see highlights around the city such as the Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada and Recoleta Cemetery. Visit local museums according to your interests, such as the Evita Museum or MALBA, a museum of Latin American art. One evening, attend a top-rated tango performance at an intimate, upscale dinner theater. If desired, take a private excursion to San Antonio de Areco and an estancia in the pampas to learn about gaucho culture and experience the traditional estancia lifestyle. Alternatively, take a private excursion to Tigre and the Parana River Delta to enjoy a relaxing private cruise on the canals of this "rural Venice," passing gardens and upscale vacation houses. Also enjoy time to take advantage of the exciting contemporary art and design scene, world-class restaurants and great shopping. All touring is flexible and can be customized to incorporate special interests such as art, tango, polo, Jewish history, family activities, adventure, gastronomy and more.
