Looked forward to this So American sojourn as we have never been to So America previously. The port destinations and the available tours were excellent. We particularly liked the 1,000 miles into the Amazon. There is a gem of a show put on by locals at your second Amazonian port! This is your normal, Viking extraordinary trip, with only two blips on the radar. This itinerary is rich with sea days, and they needed to cancel the Recife Port due to slow timing in the Amazon. It was disappointing, as it seemed that time could have been made up. We had an extension In Buenos Aires, and the hotel check in and tours information during the extension left MUCH to be desired. Not to be missed if you stay in Buenos Aires is the evening dinner & tango show in a historic building, a perfect experience! I must comment that when we shared our disappointment with Viking, they did their utmost to make it right.
