(5 / 5)We have a very positive impression of Say Hueque's services
We chose to start with Say Hueque because of other good reviews on TripAdvisor. This has become our first stop in identifying local travel agents for any trips outside of Europe. We are experienced independent travelers, but we have also traveled with small group tours in certain countries where the language and customs might be barriers (India, China, Southeast Asia, Turkey, Morocco). For everything in between, we prefer to arrange a customized and private travel experience with local travel agency experts. We continued working with Say Hueque because of the prompt and responsive communication after the initial inquiry.
The booking process with our Travel Advisor (Agustin Orso) was easy. Agustin was prompt to adjust the itinerary as often as needed. He initiated telephone communication to fully understand our needs and made great suggestions. Agustin seemed very knowledgeable and intuitive, and in one case we should have listened more carefully to his recommendations.
We had multiple Favorite Excursions — really, we can’t pick just one! In order of travel:
Santiago — Full Day City Tour. Excellent presentation of the city, local culture, and history. We especially appreciated the open and engaging conversations with our guide, Karin, and our driver, Manuel.
Casablanca Valley — Matetic Winery and Lunch. We have been to winery tours in France, Italy and South Africa, and we are very familiar with many wineries in Northern California. This was our first “bio / ecologic” winery and it was sufficiently different from others we have seen. Beautiful setting, excellent wines, great restaurant!
Patagonia Camp — First day Mirador hikes. Challenging hikes lead to rewarding vistas! Thoughtfully arranged mid-day picnic lunch, with a surprise visit from a hungry armadillo scavenging for crumbs. That part was truly memorable!
Australis Cruise — Hiking excursion to Pia Glacier and a relaxing afternoon sipping cocktails cruising through Glacier Alley. Actually, all of the mid-level hiking excursions on this cruise were extremely rewarding in terms of scenery. Our guide, Helene, on the Wulaia Bay excursion was particularly informative and fun.
Buenos Aires — Full Day City Tour. Again, we experienced an excellent presentation of the city, local culture, and history. Our guide, Agostina, was energetic and knowledgeable, and made sure we saw virtually every part of the city. She was really helpful in picking up our performance tickets at Teatro Colon.
Buenos Aires — Wine Discovery evening. We really enjoyed the intimate setting of this wine tasting event. The hosts, Bertie and Aby create a one-of-a-kind wine tasting evening — the bonus for us was Aby’s delicious food pairings and Bertie’s down to earth ability to address all kinds of wine and food related questions.

(5 / 5)Our wonderful trip has ended
We returned home yesterday from our fabulous trip to Chile and Argentina. Thank you for planning such a great itinerary - we saw so many great sights and met many helpful and friendly guides and drivers. We feel fortunate to have seen and learned so much about these two beautiful countries. This is a trip will remember fondly forever.
(5 / 5)Our trip was outstanding
Argentina is a culturally rich and geographically diverse country. Say Hueque and partners provided a very valuable and supportive service for our travel!
It was important for us to use a local company that knows the services and sights. The booking process was easy and clear and Luján answered all of our questions.
The hotels were very unique to the areas and we enjoyed the different character that each had.
The excursions were all rewarding and each so unique. Guides also each had their own strengths. Although Mendoza was not our favourite community, the trip up to Aconcagua was very fulfilling seeing local industry, communities and natural sights. The tour out to Perito Moreno was very well done and professional with everything thought out.
We are very pleased with the services - great hotels, tours and guides. Drivers on time and professional and all very helpful.

(5 / 5)An absolute dream
I just wanted to message you to say a HUGE thank you from Ella and I. You were so welcoming and kind and provided us both with amazing recommendations (We loved Ninina and Don Julio especially) for both our Patagonia trip and our time in BA. Our trip truly wouldn't have been the same without you.
Many thanks again, you and your colleagues at Say Hueque made our trip an absolute dream.

(5 / 5)Thank you for your excellent service in organising our trip to Argentina and Chile.
The trip was even better than we hoped for and we loved all the locations. The guides and drivers we came into contact were very good, even though our first pick up had to wait 3 hours as migration control at the airport was very slow.
Hotel in BA spot on. Argentina experience was real fun. Good tour around city. Will need to return to see more of this wonderful city. Tango evening fun, though the company failed to pick us up, but arranged for a taxi when contacted.
El Calafate all very good. Both hotels very good, especially the railway themed one.
El Chalten, good hotel, great trekking.
Torres del Paine exceeded all expectations. Hotel overpriced, but food, staff, location and excursions all very good
Puntas Arenas on a sunday appeared to be closed and I would not recommend the Kapa hotels to future customs. Clean but small rooms that are in need of some serious refurbishment as they are scruffy.
Ushuaia better than expected. V good excursions and a good hotel. Guides excellent. Pick up company a little disorganised, had wrong flights, but all sorted.
So you can see that we are very happy with you and your company. We will start thinking about our next trip, which I think will be around Salto, wine area lake district and across into Chile Santiago, Atacama etc.
Once again thank you for your excellent service
(5 / 5)What a fabulously planned trip we had
Before any memories start to fade, we wanted to let you know right away what a fabulously planned trip we had. Karen and Say Hueque did a perfect job of following through on every single arrangement we had discussed.
Before our trip, we had lots of questions and concerns about how the arrangements would be made. The day by day itinerary, along with the overview itinerary, were extremely useful tools. Every single organization that Say Hueque worked with did exactly what was outlined in our itinerary every single time. We never had to wait for someone to show up. We never arrived somewhere unexpected. All the arrangements were handled smoothly and efficiently.
Throughout the trip we talked about how impressed we were with your work. Thank you for making this trip to a fascinating part of the world absolutely joyful. We were able to immerse ourselves in the beauty of the Patagonian area without needing worrying about mundane travel details. We know our time in Patagonia was enhanced due to the all the work you did to make our trip a success.
We send you heart filled thanks.

(5 / 5)Thank you again for all your help !
We just wanted to say thank you so much for assisting us in planning our Honeymoon in Argentina and Chile. Everything you organized was planned out perfectly, all the accommodations and rides were on time and welcoming. Overall, we had an incredible time. Thank you for suggesting Patagonia Camp - we absolutely loved it !
We have already recommended your company to a friend of ours and will definitely mention your name to a few others.
Thank you again for all your help !
(5 / 5)Would like to say ‘thank you’ for making our trip so pleasurable
We had a fantastic trip, thank you!
We chose to travel with Say Hueque because you provided a bespoke itinerary in line with where we wanted to go, we were looking with a company with local knowledge. We saw your website and you offered what we were looking for.
2The booking process was very good. All changes were to itinerary were made / advice given speedily. The only issue was not paying by pay pal - although we did this by credit card in the end the process was more complicated.
Our favourite hotel was the Kaulem Hosteria in El Chalten - an intimate and cosy place with only 4 rooms, delicious breakfast, cakes and coffee - brilliantly located and the staff were really friendly. Out least favourite hotel was Hosteria Koi Aiken in El Calafate. This is mainly due to the location due to a 40 minute power walk to the outskirts of town and tthe rooms were a bit tired looking, although the breakfast was very good.
It's difficult to say which was our favourite excursion as they were all fantastic. The trip to Perito Merino glacier was amazing, simply because the scenery was so breathtaking and the glacier hike really interesting with informative and friendly guides. The paddle trip into the national park at Ushuaia was also great fun - again the guide spoke excellent English and made the trip enjoyable with his knowledge of the park and flora and fauna. And the excursion to the Iguazu falls was also great as the guide knew all the tricks to make sure we spent the least time queueing as possible - and again he was very informative and knowledgeable. Its really difficult to pick out a favourite memory as we loved all of the places we stayed. We hiked to the see Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre - this was also amazing. My memory will be the the diverse and stunning scenery - glaciers, mountains, waterfalls and wildlife (beagle channel cruise) the friendliness of all the people we met and the knowledge of the guides. oh and the great steak and huge portions of food!
Rene - the Iguazu falls guide - he saved us so much time queueing and was really knowledgeable about the birds and plants. But all our guides made the experience memorable.
I was a bit disappointed with the location of the Koi Aiken hosteria as we spent a lot of time walking to and from town - and I did expect that arrangements would have been made for our bags to be transferred between the Rebelde hotel. We asked and the lady at the Rebelled sorted this out for us, but an agent from Say Hueque did email to say this was our responsibility.
I would definitely recommend your company to any friends who are travelling to Argentina and would like to say ‘thank you’ for making our trip so pleasurable.
(4 / 5)Everyone was super helpful!
We chose to travel with Say Hueque because you had all of the tours we wanted and helped us customize an option that worked with our budget. The booking process was easy and helpful.
The Mercure in Iguazu was our favorite hotel... and we visited the Loi for dinner and thought it was better. Worst hotel was the Dazzler Palermo... room was small and dirty.
Our favourite excursion was Punto Tumbo penguins... soooo many of them. Would have been better if somehow you could take a boat down from Valdez peninsula, but I know that isn’t an option. Regarding the guides, everyone was super helpful!
We had to change our flight from Puerto Madryn last minute. I thought Lucia and I had talked about leaving earlier and she said the tour wouldn’t be over in time.. though she was right about the end time of the tour, we didn’t need to see the paleontology museum so we skipped that. Similarly, we wasted 5 hours in the Foz de Iguazu airport waiting to fly to Rio (a flight we had booked) but we would have preferred a tour that used up more of our day if the flight time was known.
(4 / 5)We hope to be back in Argentina in the future and will definitely book throughout Say Hueque
We wanted the help of a reputable agency to plan our trip. It was a rather large trip and since we were unfamiliar with the country, needed help coordinating everything. We also were overwhelmed with all of the possible places to go and Say Hueque made it easy with their trips. Working with Daiana was fantastic. She even took care of booking flights which was SO important for us.
Favorite hotel was Dazzler Polo and least favorite was Aeroparque Inn and Suites. The best excursions were in Ushuaia, followed by Iguazú. I really loved the hiking and paddling trip especially.
The team from Antartur were amazing and René from Ecoturismo Iguazú was phenomenal. He used all of his connections to get us around which were key because the amount of tourists in Iguazú was substantial.
The El Calafate trip could have been improved. We were scheduled to have a day of excursions, a day off, and a half day there before flying back. Because of the Christmas holiday, however, it meant that we couldn’t book the excursion we wanted for the free day (Estancia Cristina) but we did a glacier boat ride. And the following day we were in El Calafate until almost 5PM. In the future, it will help for the team to ensure travelers have something to do during the Christmas holiday and to have that booked far in advance (and an earlier flight out would’ve been great). It affected scheduling for Iguazú and we were on a flight every day for three days which wasn’t so fun!
We hope to be back in Argentina in the future and will definitely book throughout Say Hueque :).
