BUENOS AIRES & MENDOZA

Tour City of Tango & Land of Malbec - 7 days

This 7 day trip will take you to the most desirable destinations of our country—From the exciting Buenos Aires full of  tango houses, theaters, and eclectic architecture, to the Argentine wine country in relaxing Mendoza. The impressive Andes on the horizon and the green vineyards all around, will definitely keep you coming back! This is the perfect trip for those seeking to visit the most famous capital of South America and the heartland of Malbec grape.

Day 1 – Your Adventure in Argentina, starts in Buenos Aires

 

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy the city at your own pace. Buenos Aires is a marvelous, furious, cosmopolitan city, full of plenty of colours and different kind of architecture. 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!

 

Argentines are usually eager to host visitors: if you walk the streets with a map, someone will surely stop and ask if you need directions. That’s our spirit!

 

So, for this first day, be free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the mouthwatering aroma  of prized Argentine beef sizzling on an open parrilla (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping.

Day 2 – Buenos Aires

 

In the morning you will enjoy our traditional 4-5 hour long Buenos Aires city tour. You will be swept away by the highlights of our beloved Buenos Aires.

 

Over the course of a half day you will have the chance to visit the historical and political center of the city around May Square (Plaza de Mayo) and the Pink House (the presidential house). San Telmo with its cobblestone streets and  the oldest residential neighborhood and La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever present: come to walk Caminito street and dance with the locals.

 

The next stop: Puerto Madero where the city gets modernized, Retiro where the cutting-edge Kavanagh building rises like the guardian of the neighbourhood. Continue to the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires: Palermo, which is divided in 3 main sections (Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood). You’ll visit the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us that Buenos Aires was once the “Paris of the South”. Discover the final resting place of Eva Perón, “Evita” and wander through Recoleta Cemetery where she is to be found.

 

 

In the evening you will be picked up from your hotel to be driven to a mystical place where you’ll discover one of our most ancient traditions. Tango is more than our national dance. Tango is: our immigrant origins, the talent of our local artists, the sensuality of the Argentine woman and our way to deal with a broken heart, dancing our way through tragical and yet eternal love stories.

 

Tonight you will enjoy a professional display of tango and music with a group of local artists onstage immersed in an elegant and alluring place. The manners, ambience, clothes and dance steps which tango lovers used to practice 100 years ago will come to life again and you will travel in time for a night. This spectacular 3-4 hour long demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is à la carte, beverages included so you can lose yourself in the ethereal taste of Malbec wine. At the end of the evening, around midnight, you will be driven back to your hotel, fully in love with the bohemian spirit of our beloved Buenos Aires.

Day 3 – From Buenos Aires to Mendoza: Wineries Tour

 

Today, we’ll pick you up at your hotel and drive to the local airport—Time to fly to the Wine Country!

 

Argentine wines are worldwide famous, it’s no secret. People travel from afar to taste that heavenly drop squeezed from the unique Malbec grape. Mendoza is Argentina’s main wine region, heartland of Malbec grape (and other tasty types) and home of impressive mountains like the forbidding Aconcagua, the tantalizing summit for seasoned climbers around the world.

 

 

Why come to Mendoza? Because it’s the top eclectic destination of Argentina. From snow capped mountains to untamed rivers and sunny vineyards, there is an option for every taste. This is the perfect destination for romantic getaways but also the right place to go for healthy impressive outdoor sports—adventurous rafting, rappel and zipline among many others. Summer time is the best period for adventure!

 

 

Upon arrival to Mendoza, you will be taken to your hotel and during the afternoon you will take a 4 hour long trip to visit two of the best wineries of the area. In a small group, with a bilingual guide, you’ll learn the secrets of the wine making process directly from the experts’ hands. Soak up their wine philosophy and taste the delicious locally produced Cabernet and Malbec grape guided by a wine expert. In the afternoon we’ll take you back to your hotel to enjoy your first relaxing evening in town.

Day 4 – Mendoza Tours: High Mountain Aconcagua

 

 

Have you already climbed high in life? Today is your chance! You’ll visit the Cordillera de los Andes, one of the largest range mountains in the world and the backbone of Latin America.

 

 

This day starts really early in the morning right after breakfast. We’ll pick you up at your hotel and take you to a 10-12 hour long trip to visit stunning viewpoints and discover forbidding views of Mount Aconcagua (6900 m.a.s.l), the second highest peak in the world after the Himalaya Range.

 

 

Take your coat! Even in Summer time, you always get cold in higher areas. We’ll take NR 7 to get to the impressive Potrerillos’ viewpoint where sits its colossal dam at the edge of the enthralling Cacheuta Valley, famous for its thermal waters. Further ahead, the Puente del Inca will arise at the verge of river Las Cuevas. This beautiful natural monument is famous for its healing hot springs and its golden-tinted rocks. There was a time when this bridge didn’t even exist. The legend says that a group of Inca warriors, whealing to help the emperor’s son to get to the healing waters, grabed their hands and made a human bridge which gods decided to transform in the actual rocky bridge.     

 

 


From here, you’ll also appreciate the magnificence of Mount Aconcagua, the “colossus of America”. We’ll continue visiting Los Penitentes, the famous ski center, and at Las Cuevas (at 3.200 m.a.s.l) town we’ll stop to have lunch (not included) before heading to the Cristo Redentor de los Andes (Andes Christ Redeemer). Only in Summer time and if weather permits, we’ll get to the giant bronze statue, created in 1904 to preserve peace between Chili and Argentina. In the afternoon, after having visited all these higher paradises, we’ll take you back to your hotel.

We recommend Say Hueque to any one we know that may be interested in going to South America.

Hi Patty,

sorry for the late reply, but since coming home, we have been busy. We had a fabulous trip to South America thanks to Say Hueque.

We found Say Hueque on the internet researching South America/Argentina , reviews were very positive.
The good reviews and the various options, experience since 1999 as well as the good communication made us to choose to work with you.

Our hightlights have been the Iquazu Falls and the P. Moreno Glacier.
We have to favorite hotels - Toss up between the Jasy in Iquazu and the Pudu Lodge in El Chaltan. We liked the size of the rooms, the tranquility and the locations (quiet in the country) were very nice plus the balcony of the Jasy hotel.
Our favorite exucrions have been to Iquazu Falls and the Mendoza wineries. The falls were spectacular, and the wineries were very pleasant out in the country. Winery experience different from wineries in the United States. Also the P. Moreno Glacier.

Besides Patty, we enjoyed our guide in Bariloche (Frederico) and our Mendoza wine guide.. all guides were very knowledgeable. We particularly liked Frederico's enthusiasm for nature and his knowledge of Argentina's history, politics, geography, etc.

A page or two for us "English" speaking tourists, of useful phrases in the countries we visited would be useful. IE Bon Dia (good day) in Brazil, thank you, etc. And a page on paragraphs of common customs. what to expect, etc. in each country (what is polite, nor not polite, etc).

Jay and I give Say Hueque excellent grades for putting together a perfectly paced and interesting itinerary. We felt the amount of time at each place was appropriate. We felt safe the entire time, and understood that it could be a challenge. We thought the locations of the hotels were excellent!!! Close to everything we needed, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked meeting Patty in person and enjoyed sharing WHAT's APP pictures. The gift (bottle of wine) was delicious and thoughtful.

We will post our comments on trip advisor as well, and recommend Say Hueque to any one we know that may be interested in going to South America.

Regards
Jay and Louise Hecht
