Patricio could not have put together a better trip plan for us!

I had the absolute pleasure of sharing our recent Patagonia trip that you helped him plan. Patricio could not have put together a better trip plan for us!! The trip was amazing from the moment we arrived in Buenos Aires to the sad departure we made 3 weeks later. I loved every part of the trip and each day I couldn’t believe that it could get better. And then it did!! Thank you for all the work you put into scheduling all our activities and for all the many questions you answered for us in our planning. I want to come back and explore more of your amazing and absolutely beautiful country!!

Thank you again so much.

Only Say Hueque could fulfill our needs

We contacted different travel agencies and only Say Hueque could fulfill our needs. Once the complete plan was elaborated, we went over to the booking of the airplane and then finally adapted the plan to it. The rest was simple and easy.

Hotel Del Virrey in Salta and Los Colorados in Purmamarca were excellent; all the others were ok but those two excelled.
All hotels were perfectly located.

Regading our favourite excursions, the Iguazu falls are top of the list followed by the 3-day tour Calchaqui Valley in Salta. ‘El Turco’ in Salta and Agostina in Buenos Aires are guides that need special mention.

It would have been better to have private service (iso shared) for the 2-day Saltflats in Salta and the San Ignacio where the guide didn’t speak English at all.

I had a marvellous time!

I want to say thank you so much for all your hard work in the planning & organisation of my recent trip to your wonderful country. Everything went perfectly & the places I stayed were lovely, with great staff & good breakfasts - nothing was too much trouble.

Travel & pick ups were all on time & I had no problems. I had a marvellous time!

I already have at least 2 friends interested in using your expertise for a future trip to Argentina. I myself am interested in coming back & possibly doing a cruise to Antarctica, so I may be contacting you again for advice on this.

Thanks again & all the very best
