Trafalgar uncovers 2013 South America program

Trafalgar has introduced its new 2013 South America brochure, complete with 13 full itineraries and seven extensions including the Galapagos, Easter Island, Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon. Offering an insider’s view of South America, the trips feature small, locally guided sightseeing groups of no more than 20 people, as well as Trafalgar’s exclusive Local Specialties and authentic Be My Guest dining. For a limited-time, travellers can save up to $800 per couple on 2013 South America vacations when they book and pay in full by Oct. 15. For travellers looking to sample a taste of several countries, the 13-day Best of South America trip is ideal. This At Leisure itinerary takes guests to some of the continent’s top sights, but also allows plenty of time for individual exploration. Starting in Rio de Janeiro and departing in Santiago, guests fly from Brazil to Argentina to Chile, with all internal flights included. Featured inclusions include a cable car ride up Sugar Loaf Mountain for spectacular views of Rio and a cogwheel trip to the summit of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Foodies will delight in Trafalgar’s signature Be My Guest dinner in Buenos Aires, where guests are welcomed into a family home to be wined and dined with homecooked meals and taught the secrets of kneading country bread in the family kitchen. Other highlights include a scenic walk with a Local Guide through Iguassu Falls, a traditional barbecue and samba show in Rio and a winetasting and Highlight Lunch on the grounds of a winery in Santiago. “Our 2013 South America brochure really highlights the best that the region has to offer, including all of Trafalgar’s Local Specialties and Be My Guest dining experiences that travellers can’t get anywhere else,”says Doug Patterson, president of Trafalgar Canada. “Our focus was to provide our guests with the opportunity to experience South America as civilians do, interacting with the locals, hearing their stories and sharing meals in their homes.”(
