July 1-11, 2021

Partnering with Black Traveler, I present to you a South American adventure to Salvador da Bahia, Iguazu Falls, and Rio de Janeiro. With this trip, you will get a chance to explore two cities and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. 



Africa meets South America right in Bahia. We will start our journey discovering African roots in Bahia through religion, music, and dance. We will also spend time visiting the main cultural and

historical sites, including hidden places that only locals know. We can't leave town without a dance lesson and a great performance!


Why not take a pit stop by Iguazu Falls to explore the Argentinian and Brazilian side of this wonder of nature! As we explore, we will get to drive through the jungle and take a boat trip along the waterfall to get a closer look. 


Let's start with an African culture and city tour for a true Rio welcome. We will be sure to explore all the major spots like Christ the Redeemer, Selaron Steps, Santa Teresa, and Sugar Loaf Cable Car. Of course, free time to explore the many beaches and neighborhoods. Don't miss out on the optional samba lessons!
