Our tour begins with a visit to downtown Sao Paulo. We start at the neo-Gothic Metropolitan Cathedral, more commonly known as Catedral da Sé, which boasts an organ with over 10,000 pipes and an underground chapel and crypt. Go to where it all started at Pateo do Colegio, where the city was founded in 1554, as well as Mosteiro de São Bento.

We also tour the Municipal Theater, which is regarded as a great landmark in the city for both historical and architectural importance and was constructed in 1911 by Ramos de Azevedo. It hosted historically important events such as the Week of Modern Art in 1922, which marked a turning point in Brazilian Modernism, and today hosts ballets, orchestras and renowned choirs. We also go to the Matarazzo Building and Vale do Anhangabaú for fascinating views, before ending the tour at Praça da República.
Iguassu Falls – Brazil Side
Amongst all the waters of the world, nothing quite compares to or is more impressive than the natural spectacle provided by the stunning group of 275 cascading falls that make up the Iguassu Waterfalls.
Located just a few kilometers from the union of the Iguassu River with the Parana River, the waterfalls will captivate you and leave you in awe with their size and strength of flow and current. You’ll be sure to soak in the sights of the landscape, as you tour the Brazilian side of the falls.
Having quite the captivating history, the geologic change that gave birth to the Iguassu Waterfalls took place nearly 150 million years ago. With a quake that shook the earth’s crust clear around the globe, a gigantic canyon formed at the Iguassu region. This canyon, full of rock steps and outcroppings through which the grand Iguassu River flows, led to the magnificent creation of the falls. With an average flow of 10 million liters per second, the sheer velocity of the cascading water creates a huge mist cloud and roars with a deafening sound. Marvel at the biggest waterfall of them all, the ‘Devil’s Throat’, which is a massive 90 meters high. During the rainy season, the stream of the Iguassu River increases and displays an even more wondrous spectacle.
One of nature’s many bounties, the stunning scene and immense power of the Iguassu Waterfalls will be sure to leave you mystified.
