Thank you for the recipe. The trip was great but I have a few suggestions. As I said earlier, I didn’t know that I would be charged so much for minor things as I was at the Patios Lerma. You might want to inform travelers of that. Also, times for transportation were not always accurate. For example I was told that my van for a field trip from Purmamarca would arrive 8-8:45 and it didn’t get there until 11:00. It was right on time but I was told to be ready earlier. The hotel manager told me that I missed it and I was about to take the bus to Salta. Furthermore, the tours might give a handout explaining the various stops and an accompanying map. The trip was great, however, and thanks for everything.

Yes, I am back at home...and at work :-(. I had such a wonderful time in Argentina. Everything was amazing -- the people, the culture, the weather, the sights.
Which hotel did you like the most?
I loved Casa Sur Bellini in Buenos Aires. It was very cool and the staff was so helpful and friendly. They helped Laura find a "mouth guard" when she chipped her tooth and when her wallet and cell phone were stolen.
What was the best of traveling with us?
The support and structure was great. I like that Say Hueque took care of booking the hotels, arranged the airport transfers and basically organized the parts of the trip that I didn't have time for. And when we had that terrible issue with the ATMs in Puerto Iguazu not working, Constanza saved us by giving us money so that we could pay the entrance fee for Iguazu Falls. If we were traveling on our own, we would have been in trouble.
Is there anything you think could be improved?
I don't think so. If they could clone you, Ursula, that would make me really happy! You're the best.
I attached a few photos too :-)

We received a gift in the post from Say Hueque last week and it reminded me that I still hadn’t sent a review for you, which I feel really bad about. I had actually typed up quite a few comments about various parts of the trip soon after we got back, but it was a very long commentary on a lot of things and I thought it was a bit too long to send!!!!
Anyway, the main thing is, we really enjoyed our trip and we are very pleased that we picked Say Hueque to organise it for us. I have written up a testimonial, which I am more than happy for you to publish on your website if you would like.
If you really would like my other feedback – highlights and some small issues which maybe could be improved - then I am happy to forward that also, just let me know.
Thanks again for looking after us, it made all the difference to know we had someone looking out for us while we were far from home. Thanks also for the pins. Oh, and the empanadas recipe, I will definitely give that a go. I am not sure I can find the pre made pastry wraps here, but we do have lots of imported flours, so maybe I can find something suitable to make my own for our Argentinian evening. We brought back some Calafate jam and of course the wine you very kindly gave us, so with some homemade chimichurri we should be able to bring back some happy memories.

We booked the most amazing 4 week trip around Argentina with Say Hueque, picking from a couple of their standard itineraries and then mixing and matching days and places to build our ideal trip. It was great to have a team actually based in the country, organising our visit, as they were best placed to advise what was feasible for the time of year we were travelling and the distances involved.
They have good access to deals on internal flights and the most adorable selection of accommodations to chose from – we were not disappointed in any of the 12 places we stayed from the inn/b+b range, finding the uniqueness of the boutique hotels much more personal than chain hotels tend to be.
I cannot praise the girls from Say Hueque enough – Sylvia who replied to all of my long emails full of questions about every little detail in preparation for the trip, and Ursula who was our guide around Buenos Aires and sent emails for each stop on our route packed with details of things to do and suggestions of places to eat. They both have such enthusiasm for their country and are keen to ensure that their visitors enjoy the best experience possible, which we did! Thank you Say Hueque. (Travelled February/March 2015)

Ahora estamos terminando nuestro viaje por Perú. Gracias por su e-mail y la receta.
Le cuento, en Argentina con Una travel nos fue muy bien, nos llamaron para avisarnos de las excursiones y nos dejaron bien temprano en el bus de San Pedro de Atacama.
Luego de llegar a Chile la cosa cambio radicalmente. Nadie nos llamó ni nos aviso para las excursiones, no sabíamos quien tenía que venir a por nosotros ni en que momento.
Estuvimos esperando uno de los días 2 horas para que vinieran, sin ninguna información, nada.
La parte de Bolivia fue algo más organizada ya que era un tour en 4x4.
Pero la agencia de Chile no nos gustó nada. El guía parecía sacado de una película de miedo, sin ningún síntoma de motivación repetía cosas sin sentido.
En fin es una pena porque para la plata que pagamos no le recomendaría a nadie coger el tour. Lo único bueno fue la parte argentina.
Le agradezco su interés por nosotros.

I am having a good time! Despite a lot of rain, I enjoyed my excursions to Puerto Blest yesterday, and Victoria Island today. I didn't feed the sea gulls, but enjoyed watching them. I couldn't stay out on the deck long, as the wind was quite strong and cold! The waterfalls and the Arrayanas Forest were my favorite parts, and I found the history and nature of Victoria Island quite fascinating.
For some reason, Barlan did not give me travel vouchers for Victoria Island, so I called Eduardo this morning, and he personally delivered them to the hotel.
I am fine at this hotel. The room is spacious and nice. However, there is a disco across the street that is quite loud, and young partying drunks are yelling in the street at 4:00a.m. All the employees have been nice, with the exception of one gentleman at the reception desk last night, who was very short and impacient with me when I asked him if he could possibly reset the internet for the second floor, as it was not working. I think I interrupted him watching a TV program.
I am not complaining, because for the most part, I am very comfortable here in the hotel, but I thought you might want my honest feedback for future customers of Say Hueque.
I have already fully planned my day tomorrow, but appreciate your suggestions :-) I'm looking forward to my short circuit excursion of Bariloche. I will also doing a city tour and some shopping.
