Cheers to Say Hueque! The difference between Say Hueque and others were the unique touches and suggestions they added to our trip.

Hi Patty,

Here is what I posted…

What a trip!! Everyone at Say Hueque was fabulous, responsive and kind. We had a hiccup or two with transports, because of airlines, Patty and her team was responsive and got us back on track in no time!

The difference between Say Hueque and others were the unique touches and suggestions they added to our trip. During our short stay in Buenos Aires they arraigned for dinner with an Argentinian family. This evening was lovely, the family, food, wine and conversation added a personal touch I have never experienced on a trip.

They found unique accommodations that were practical but added something. For instance, in El Calafate our charming hotel was across the street from a bird sanctuary. I mentioned I was an avid birder once during casual conversations, they picked up on it and made a trip packed with Patagonia highlights our own one of a kind experience.

Cheers to Say Hueque!

A special shout out to our friend in Santiago, dealing with a lost tourist Visa could have been stressful. He was kind, stayed with us and everything we smoothly…he also made it clear it was his pleasure and he wanted us to be safe. That was very comforting.

Only improvement for me would have been less days in City’s…it felt like some transitions could have been used to see other riches of Argentina and Chile….. I chalk most of that feeling up to being in a new place for the first time and not knowing 100% what you want to do, so don’t take it the wrong way!!

Cheers,
Lanie

All the best,

Lanie Somers-Standifer

Most attractive agency - We enjoyed the trip very much and we shall recommend you to all our friends.

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
