1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Iguacu Falls absolutely spectacular, definitely not the same as seeing them on the TV, the sounds are just incredible and make the experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Internal flights, be aware that times can change regularly and some of them have stops but no one actually tells you this. Cuiaba airport is complete chaos, watch the boards like a hawk our flight went from being advertised nowhere to last call. One good thing though everyone over 60 gets priority boarding in Brazil. Ihla Grande is not good for anyone who has physical impairments, it says that you have all these lovely 'walks' but in reality parts of the trails are scrambling over rocks. Really beautiful island though.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We travelled in low season so hopefully benefited the local guides all of which were excellent.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic, can't quite give it 5 stars but it was very special. Simon from the vacation provider was excellent and very helpful.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Iguazzu falls - were absolutely spectacular. Who would think that waterfalls would excite and grip one for two days!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Allow enough time to see more of Rio. Three days is insufficient. Make sure you know transfer distances and durations as they can be arduous.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Our expenditure must have contributed to the local economy and particularly at Iguazzu helped conservation efforts in the National Parks.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fascinating first visit to S. America. If only it were closer to home!
