According to Chile’s famous poet, Pablo Neruda, “Laughter is the language of the soul.” Well, you’ll be laughing in Chile on this holiday, because Monograms has handled all the details for you, allowing you to just relax, enjoy...and laugh! And it’s not just Chile you’ll visit; you’ll also visit Brazil & Argentina. On this 19-day holiday, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily buffet breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, a one-of -a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, a “friend” who will answer your questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly in each city.
Your holiday begins the moment you arrive. Monograms can pick you up at the airport, so you don’t have to deal with hassles or logistical issues of getting to your hotel after your flight to Rio de Janeiro. At your selected hotel, your Local Host will help you get settled, present you with materials to familiarise you with the city, and help personalise your trip. The next morning, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for a private sightseeing tour with a local expert. Your tour includes a cog-wheel train through Tijuca Forest to the top of Corcovado Mountain, home to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, one of the new Seven Modern Wonders of the World. In Buenos Aires, your private sightseeing features the must-see attractions, including the La Boca district and the Cemetery of the Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried. From a local expert, hear why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of South America” and learn insider secrets. In Santiago, your private sightseeing with an expert local guide includes the Plaza de Armas and an inside visit to the 18th-century Cathedral. Throughout the vacation, the inside visits include VIP access, so you can skip the lines. Why be like all the other tourists standing in line when you can be up close and personal with the tango dancers in the La Boca district or capturing the perfect shot from atop Corcovado Mountain?
In each city, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Hosts of course). Perhaps enjoy a samba show in Rio and a Tango show in Buenos Aires. Take an excursion to Chile’s wine country or explore the markets offered in each city. And it’s not just the cities you’ll experience on this vacation...we’ll also take you to Iguassu Falls, where we’ll give you a private tour on both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of the falls. Hear the thundering roar of the water, see the surrounding luxuriant growth, and be awed by the rainbows formed in the mist. It is nothing short of spectacular!
