For the ultimate insight into Santos and its surroundings, join this excursion to attractions as diverse as an orchidarium, coffee museum and aquarium, followed by time for shopping.

Depart from the pier for a scenic drive through historic Santos, which was founded in 1543, en route to the shady realm of the city's botanical gardens. Strolling beneath towering trees, you'll probably see an array of tropical birds such as macaws and toucans. Still, the highlight is the orchidarium, a remarkable collection of more than 100 exotic species of all shapes and colors.

Then, it's on to the Coffee Museum via Gonzaga Beach, a gorgeous stretch of sand often compared to the French Riviera. Housed in a grand building to assert the importance of coffee to Brazil's economy, the museum presents the storied history of coffee production in a most fascinating way. It's a fine prelude to your luncheon of Brazilian barbecue at an authentic churrascaria or steakhouse.

Following lunch, you'll drive to the coastal city of Guaruja to explore its Acqua Mundo, the largest aquarium in South America. Perched on the beach, it's an amazing place filled with mini-lakes and tanks for penguins, caimans and even albino snakes. Watch for adventurous divers as they hand-feed some of the creatures.

Finally, you'll enjoy an hour or so of free time to shop at nearby La Plage mall, known for its high-end stores and unusual merchandise. Or if you'd prefer, you can stroll the adjoining beach before it's time to rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier in Santos.

Please note: This tour includes just over 2 hours of moderate walking plus any additional walking during free time. There will be some uneven surfaces to negotiate. The tour is available for wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. The tour may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
