Separately booking the pieces of this nine-night vacation would cost up to $700 more per person.
In Buenos Aires, see the presidential palace where Juan and Eva Peron addressed the crowds, plus tour an Argentine ranch with cowboys and take in a tango show. Then, journey through Patagonia's snowcapped mountains and the famous Strait of Magellan.
