TCS Expeditions (800.727.7477, www?.tcsexpeditions.com) will offer its own version of an Atlantic Rim journey in January. Departing from London, the Cape to Cape tour visits Madeira Island, Portugal; Burkina Faso; Namibia; Cape Town, South Africa; Rio de Janeiro; Buenos Aires; Cape Horn in Chile; Iguazú Falls in Brazil; and Panama City. Rates for the 23-day trip begin at $54,950, including flights, accommodations, meals, and tours. (The company maintains a no-tipping policy.)

Travel on the Cape to Cape trip is in a specially converted Boeing 757, which carries a maximum of 74 passengers. At most stops, expedited boarding and customs make international frontiers as painless as a casual walk from one room to the next. Once on the ground, passengers break into groups, so sites are never overwhelmed and there is never a sense of being on a large group tour. Adding to the intimacy are in-flight lectures by experts on the various destinations on the itinerary.
