Day 1 – Travel to Argentina & Chile - First stop Buenos Aires

Welcome to Argentina!
Capital of Argentina and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces this title, as well as shows off plenty of its own culture! Explore the traditional European architecture, the cobbled streets lined with rustic outdoor cafes, the local antique and artisanal markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping, and the mouthwatering aroma of prized Argentine beef sizzling on an open “parrrilla” (barbeque) in the air. Buenos Aires is home to some excellent local designers and you will certainly find the perfect leather jacket, long leather boots and handbags for all occasions. Though above all, Buenos Aires is known as the home of the tango. Be sure to enjoy a traditional dinner-tango show and explore the colorful San Telmo and Recoleta neighborhoods.

Upon arrival in Buenos Aires you will be met at the airport and have a transfer in private to your hotel. Look for the sign with your name.

You will have the rest of the day to enjoy this vibrant city, leaving you the remainder of the day to explore the historic neighborhoods and enjoy the cafe culture of Buenos Aires.

During the trip you will cross Lago Nahuel Huapi where it is joined by the Rio Negro with its ethereal green waters (due to the suspended minerals reflecting the sunlight), Lago Frias, with its completely different colors, and Lago Esmeralda (Lago Todos los Santos).

The lakes, surrounded by Tronador Mountain, Osorno volcano and Volcan Punta Gudo, as well as protected and untouched forest, are a gift from the nature that you will experience in a long day that deserves every minute.

The Andean Lakes Crossing is the most scenic way to travel from Argentina to Chile.

We would recommend Say Hueque to anyone (and already have).

Say Hueque provided us with a customized itinerary with hotels that exactly matched our request for a mix of sight-seeing in Argentina and hiking in Patagonia (Argentina and Chile). All travel arrangements and tours were pre-arranged for hotel and airport (international and domestic) pick-ups and drop-offs, and these services were right on time and provided by very pleasant and helpful staff. The hotels were great and many of them had excellent restaurants that made it easy to enjoy the local cuisine. Especially memorable were Fierro Hotel (Eco Restaurant), Estancia Helsingfors and Las Torres Hotel.

Given that we did not want to be part of a larger tour group (12-16 people), this approach worked best for us. The booking staff (Lucia and Yuna) and our in-country hostess (Ursula) were all available prior to and during our trip, which made this “bucket-list” 18-day vacation very easy for us at a more-than-competitive cost.

We would recommend Say Hueque to anyone (and already have).

Thanks for the kind arrangement. We have a good memories and an enjoyable holiday in Chile and Argentina

Dear Silvia and Yuna,

Thanks for the kind arrangement. We have a good memories and an enjoyable holiday in Chile and Argentina.

Silvia, your advice on our trip planning makes the holiday went smoothly and didn’t have too much disturbance. Though the suggested accommodations were not deluxe but all given us a warm and comfort feeling. Your recommendation for having all inclusive program in Los Torres was fantastic and we didn’t need worry about the cost of food and beverage after a tiring hiking but simply sat in the bar / restaurant for enjoying the meal and chat with fun. The two and a half days excursion were great and gave us more time on enjoying the park especially we finally complete the hike and arrive the base of Torres de Paine. On last day, we also had a chance to see the wild animal - puma, red fox and white fox, etc

Yuna, sorry for keeping the changes after the tour is confirmed and causing the bothering. Thanks for the patience.

All the tour guides were professional and knowledgeable. A detailed information was given of each view point. We especially thanks those guides in El Calafate. However, the one in Salta who guided us to Purmamarca was poor. As the car was full and we all sat at the back of the van. His voice was not clear and sometimes we didn’t know what to see and name of view points when get off the van. More importantly, he left us all in the restaurant without gave any translation of the menu whilst the waitress didn’t know any English. We have no help until other tourist told us what the menu was. You can imagine how we feel unhelpful at that moment.

The private service in El Cafayate, Iguazu and Buenos Aires was great and give us more freedom to decide which place should stay Longer or skip. As far they found us like photo shooting, they always pointed out the good place for shooting and gave us sufficient time. Of course, this may defer the touring but thanks for their patience.

Personally, I like Adrian who is our guide in Iguazú on Argentina side. After the picked up from airport, he gave us a lot of advice on visiting the fall, preparing for the wet, etc. He also drew a map of the town so that we can easy to find out the restaurant and town. He is so caring. It was sad he hadn’t been our guide on the next day on Brazil side though the other was good as well.

Jose was the guide in Buenos Aires. A caring and funny man. During the tour, he advised us some posture for photo shooting which was nice. He also taught us how to us the panorama function for iPhone - so lovely. After the Tigre tour, he was willing to brought us to the El Ateneo and gave an idea on the CD for tango music.

All the guide for private service were fantastic. We all like them and wholeheartedly thanks for their effort.

I am planning to Peru and Ecuador next year and will definitely keep in touch with you. I would also recommend your office to my friend when they asked.

Once again, thanks for all the helps during the planning and trip.

Have all the best.

Connie

Deborah did a great job of helping me build an itinerary. I had a great trip.

My hostel, America del Sur told me about Say Hueque. Deborah did a great job of helping me build an itinerary. I felt the service was friendly. Also the agency was around the corner from my hostel so very convenient.

Overall I had great trip. Thank you so much. I've posted on the TripAdvisor link you sent.

My two highlights were the Perito Moreno Glacier and ‎El Chalten. I loved this town and the nearby hikes were very enjoyable. I felt the number of days I had here (4) was perfect.

My favorite Hotel was the Ranche Grande in El Chalten. It had a comfortable layout and friendly staff. The excursion to the Perito Moreno Glacier was really beautiful.

I also enjoyed the excursion to the national park near Ushuaia. The guide was very friendly and fun. The canoeing, lunch and hike were all great. Also this excursion had some people my age compared to excursions.

The guide during the national park excursion near Ushasia was great. Unfortunately I don't remember his name.

The flight from Ushasia to Bariloche took about 7 hours as it stopped in El Calafate on the way and there was no food or snacks served during this time. Only drinks on the second flight.
Maybe worth advising future customers of this.

I wouldn't recommend the trip to Victoria island near Bariloche. It is very small and they spend 3 hrs on the island. The guided walk was only in Spanish. The second part of this excursion to the forest was nice as we had an English speaking guide and left straight after the walk.

I wouldn't recommend the boat trip from Bariloche to Puerto Varas. There are too many changes from boat to bus.
Thanks,
Patrick
