Research for our South America Trip

Image
Now that our cruise is less than a year away we are busy planning, researching, and reading.  We are of course researching the most thru Cruisecritic.com and our roll call is huge!  Almost 200 people, heck we don't usually get that big a roll call when we sail  in the Caribbean!

We have a Lonely Planet book on South America, we have a book just on Rio de Janeiro and we have read them both!
We have narrowed down the flights and are just waiting for us to accummulate a few more air miles (probably will reach it some time this month) to book our flights thru Airmiles.ca   Looks like we will fly to Rio via Toronto and Sao Pablo and arrive six days before our crusie.  This should give us a lot of time to do a thorough tour of Rio and the sourounding area.  We are hoping to get a feel for the city and are currently researching three different tour guides to provide us with two days of tours.  We hope to narrow this down within the next two weeks.
We also hope to get out and enjoy the pre C…
