This isn't about luggage but are you on the 11/10 essence of South America?
We took this trip in Sept. 2014. We had to stay under 44 lbs. on our checked luggage. They did charge if it was overweight on the internal flights. They were also checking carry on luggage for size, weight requirements. Seemed like backpacks and small duffles weren't scrutinized but rollers were.
Hope this helps.
Yes we are. My parents and my husband and I.
I did some research on internal flights. I could be way off base, but this is what I found.
Santiago (SCL) to Puerto Montt (PMC) - Latam Airlines l hour 45 minutes
Bariloche (BRC) to Buenos Aires (BUE) - Aerolineas Argentinas Airlines - 2 hours
Buenos Aires (BUE) to Iguazu (IGR) Aerolineas Argentinas Airlines - 1 hour 55 minutes
Iguazu (IGR) to Rio (GIG) Latam Airlines - l hour 55 minutes
My husband and I will be on the January 23 tour. Anyone else? We live in San Rafael, CA and this will be our 4th Tauck tour.
Rita, we arrive on the 24th and we have a wine tour scheduled for the 25th. We also have never been to South America. This should be a fun trip!! The trip officially doesn’t begin until the 26th at 6:00pmso we will have some wiggle room to rest up. Talk soon, Sallie

I am also on the January 23rd trip. Travelling with 3 friends from FL. I'm a travel agent and Tauck gave me the internal flight information - I checked their baggage rules and all say 50 lbs and 62 inches for checked luggage. We arrive on the 21st and are taking a couple of tours before our welcome dinner on the 23rd. Looking forward to this wonderful itinerary.
