Capital of Argentina and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces this title, as well as showing off plenty of its own culture!

For many years now, El Calafate has been considered capital of the glaciers. Located at the shore of Lago Argentino (the southernmost, largest Patagonian lake) it’s also home of the Spegazzini glacier, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the Upsala glacier, named “Glaciar del Gigante” (Giant’s glacier) upon its discovery and the biggest glacier that sits at the mouth of Lake Argentino.

Everything was taken care of!

I found Say Hueque through a Google search for Patagonia tours and then read reviews possibly on TripAdvisor.
Good reviews and a better price and more complete package than the other tour company I was speaking with.
Everything was taken care of! I could enjoy just being in beautiful Patagonia and relax rather than constantly trying to sort my travel and hotel arrangements at each stop.

The scenery at Perito Moreno and in Torres del Paine was unbeatable, but I also really enjoyed the hike in Ushuaia because the guide was so knowledgeable, and the lunch they prepared in they woods was quite nice. I loved all of the excursions. It was an incredible trip.
As mentioned above, the guide for the hike in Ushuaia was great. I think her name was Carla, but I'm not sure. She was so enthusiastic and passionate about her work, and her love of the nature we saw on our hike was infectious.

Thanks,
Catherine

I recently completed a holiday in Argentina that was organized by Say Hueque, (giving this company a rating of 5 stars is an injustice they deserve 7 stars)

I recently completed a holiday in Argentina that was organized by Say Hueque, (giving this company a rating of 5 stars is an injustice they deserve 7 stars) in my world people do not care about how much you know, they only want to know how much you care, I travel the world 3 times a year and have never experienced a more caring Tour Company, than SAY HUEQUE. We had arranged for tours to Iguazu Falls and El Calfate with them, not only were they way cheaper than most other companies with the same offering, but very very true to label with their offerings, our tour coordinator Lujan provided all the necessary arrangements, ( Flights, tour guides on arrival and hotel bookings etc) she was absolutely terrific, a true professional that displayed much pride in her job, from the minute we arrived in Buenos Aires ( mind you our flight was 4 hours late) her representative Marcela ( another fantastic and caring person) was there at the airport to greet us, and stayed with us to check us into our hotel, specific instructions and arranged pick up and departure times were always spot on, which left us very comfortable between trips to and from the airport knowing that we were being looked after with a gold five star service at all times.
If you are looking at a holiday anywhere in South America, especially Argentina, more so if you cannot speak Spanish, then I strongly recommend you give this company an opportunity to offer their services to you, from the moment I made my first email enquiry, Lujan would always reply back to me within the next 24- 36 hours at all times.
I have already recommended Say Hueque ( and also told them to ask for Lujan especially, as she is nothing short of fantastic at her job) to some of my friends that are planning trips to South America next year.

Hi Marcela and Patricio,

I would like to thank you and the team for the perfect organization , coordination , hotels and trips chosen and responsiveness in case of need .
We enjoyed the trip very much and we shall recommend you to all our friends.

We learned about Say Hueque while searching for an organizer in internet. You were the most attractive agency and Patricio was the most cooperative.

My highlight of travelling with you was the commitment . The most impressive site was El Calafate with its Glaciers. The best Hotel was Las Torres in Torres del Paine and Casa Sur in B.A , But all were very good. Our favorite excursions & guides were the one in Torres del Paine and in Ushuaia.

The only thing which might be improved is the communication in Chile.

Regards, Danny
