Vacation to Rio to meet these girls

We are two couples, all 69 or over and we have just returned from the most wonderful vacation. We were very impressed that all arrangements were made for transport to and from our hotels and representatives were waiting for us at the airports. Somehow we did not get the services of an agent in Rio except to make our return arrangements.
In Iguassu the two guides we had were fantastic to say the least, they were Joa (John) and Leandro and were with us constantly for two days. Leandro took care of all the arrangements for us to trasfer into Argentina so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The falls are so spectacular, just breathtaking and we took the boat ride which was just a little scary for me.
Our hotels, Luxor Regente over looking the beach, Des Cataratas and Kempinski were all superb. The latter has a very small elevator and eating area but its elegant furnishings made up for that and it is situated in a very upscale neighbourhood.
One word of warning, be extremely careful in Rio. It seems best to stay off the beach at all times. We thought we were being vigilant but at an off guard moment we still had our camera snatched . Having said that it is still a beautiful and interesting place to visit. We would highly recommend this trip and feel we had excellent value for our dollars. We are looking for another trip to make.
