Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Greater Louisville Inc. (The Metro Chamber of Commerce) will host a Discovery Tour to Brazil for both members and non-members as part of its global connections strategy for 2013.  This is the second destination for the year, which includes a trip to Turkey next month.  The exciting excursion to Brazil is scheduled for September 25 to October 3. 

This once-in-a-lifetime trip to Brazil is designed to provide you with the opportunity to experience different cultural activities, see important historic sites and explore international business climates. 

The 9-day Brazil itinerary includes stays in both Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, and Rio de Janeiro. Highlights are visits to Sugarloaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer, and the famed Copacabana Beach. The deadline to register for this amazing Brazilian experience is June 21, 2013.

Your trip includes an incredible array of amenities including round trip international flights from Chicago O'Hare airport, arrival and departure transfers, airfare from Sao Paulo to Rio, superior hotel accommodations, daily international breakfast, all sightseeing tours and excursions, transportation in private coaches with English-speaking guides. This spectacular package also offers specific experiences based on each locale, including a Churrascaria dinner in Sao Paulo, a traditional luncheon and authentic Samba Show in Rio as well as a tour of the nearby Tijuca Rain Forest and favelas.  GLI sponsors the trips in partnership with Indus Travels, one of the best travel agencies for chamber tours.

In addition to all of these activities, your Brazil itinerary can include an optional half-day of networking appointments with local businesses if you choose to participate.

Last year, GLI sponsored tours to both Cuba and India and received rave reviews. "India was an amazing once in a lifetime experience," said Curtis Warfield, CEO of Parallon Business Performance Group. "As the global economy continues to change, it is so important that we continue to learn how to partner with new and thriving economies and learn about other cultures. The trip was a 10. We rode camels and elephants, held king cobras and visited the Taj Mahal."                                               

"It's exciting to be able to offer our members and non-members alike the opportunity to experience international travel to such fascinating destinations," said GLI Manager of

Global Engagement, Michael Iacovazzi Pau. "It's one thing to read and talk about these places and quite another to actually spend time getting to know the people and understanding their points of view.  It is true cultural enrichment that can help us with our work here at home."
