Sample South America Packages

 

Peru

In Peru, see one of the most well preserved ancient Incan cities when you choose a pre- or post-cruise package with Monograms. On your first day, enjoy an included, private tour into the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a complimentary lunch. From here, head to the town of Picas, where traditional Peruvian crafts and wares such as alpaca sweaters and handmade jewelry are available for purchase. The next day, embark on a motor coach to the ancient city of Machu Picchu for insight into this ancient civilization through the city's remnants. After a long day of hiking, relish a day of free time in the city of Cusco before heading home or embarking on your South America cruise!

 

Colombia

Arrive in Bogota for a pre- or post-cruise tour starting in a market in the heart of the city, where your taste buds will thank you for the traditional Colombian food. Then it's off to the Gold Museum, home to one of the largest stores of gold from before the Spanish invasion of Central America. The next day is devoted to free time, which Local Hosts suggest you spend touring the underground Zipaquira Salt Cathedral, an underground labyrinth full of religious monuments. Afterwards, board you included flight to the coffee capital of Colombia, Pereira. Spend the day here sampling and touring a coffee farm. Your next included flight takes you to the beautiful Caribbean coast where you can see San Felipe Fort, built to protect Cartagena from pirates.

 

Brazil

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most culturally robust cities in the world, and is the perfect place to spend some time before or after your cruise! On the first day, hop on a train for a scenic ride to the highest point in Rio, where you will be at the foot of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. After working up an appetite, head down the mountain for a traditional Brazilian feast of charcoal-roasted meat. The next day is open to your preferences, but the Local Hosts highly recommend a Jeep tour to Tijuca National Park!

 

Ecuador

If you're cruising to the Galapagos, chance are you'll be in Quito, Ecuador for a pre- or post-cruise stay. When you book with The Cruise Web, you can bundle your cruise with a guided Monograms land tour package in Quito. A Local Host can guide you through the highlights of Quito, such as San Francisco Square and the famous Virgin de Quito angel statue. The next day, follow your host to the Indian Market in Otavalo, where you can purchase traditional textiles and crafts. Spend the next few days exploring landmarks throughout Ecuador by way of train. Some of the notable stops on your guided tour of the country might include Cotopaxi National Park, Chimborazo—the highest volcano in Ecuador—and the Todos los Santos ruins. Spend your last day in Ecuador touring a cacao plantation and learning how the plant is processed and turned into the chocolate we all know and love.

 

Galapagos

Arriving in Quito, you begin your pre- or post-cruise tour with a private tour highlighting the legacy of the Spanish and Incas in Ecuador. From here, fly to the Galapagos and board a ferry for North Seymour Island. You'll see a variety of exotic wildlife even before settling into your hotel. Spend the next day at a Giant Tortoise reserve in Santa Cruz, where you can get up close and personal with the ancient animals. Spend a couple more days in Santa Fe, where you can enjoy an afternoon at the Charles Darwin Research Station or relax on the beach near your hotel. Your last stop before departing the Galapagos should be the Twin Pit Craters, volcanic craters caused by the sinking of the ground.

 

Chile

Nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the capital of Chile, Santiago, is considered one of the most advanced South American cities. Santiago is a city teeming with a colorful mix of European and Latin culture, making for a beautiful pre- or post-cruise land tour! Enjoy a private tour with a local guide who uses the landmarks of the city to walk you through Chile's unique history. The next day is yours to spend however you please, but locals recommend a trip to Valparaiso for a taste of the famous wines from Chile's West Coast.

 

Argentina

Known as "Paris of South America," Buenos Aires is brimming with culture influence by the vibrancy of South America and the sophistication of Europe. Here, follow up a private city tour with dinner and an Argentinian Tango show. On your second day in Buenos Aires, you can venture to the countryside for a gaucho demonstration or take a short river cruise down the Tigre River to see some impressive mansions and unrivaled scenery.
