(4 / 5)We only used your services for our 2 day excursion to Iguauzu Falls, but that was the highlight of our trip to Argentina!
Say Hueque was recommended to us from our hotel in Buenos Aires, Casasur Bellini. We only used your services for our 2 day excursion to Iguazu Falls, but that was the highlight of our trip to Argentina!
We only stayed at one hotel on our trip with you, the Amerian Portal del Iguazu. While it was in a scenic
location to view the Iguazu River pour into the Parana River, and our room did have a nice view of this, the hotel itself was not that great. The facility needs to be updated. You can see wear and tear everywhere. The only way to turn on the lights in our room was to insert TWO keycards into the slot by our front door and even then lightbulbs were not working. The breakfast was very minimal. I did not even see an option for espresso coffee. I wish you had offered different tiers of hotels to choose from at different points. It would have been nice to have the option tos stay at the Melia Hotel in the national park or at the pink hotel on the Brazil side of the falls.
Our guide was very helpful. Our plane from Buenos Aires was late due to storms in the area. Our guide quicky ushered us out of the airport and right to the falls so we could get as much time as possible there with limited time remaining in the day. On the second day, we were running late to get to the airport due to long lines at the Brazil/Argentina border and our driver had the forethought to get our boarding passes ahead of time. Nice job!
In addition to providing more hotel options, I would like to see more air options. We were booked in economy but luckily we were both Sky Priority members and therefore were able to get better seats and carry more luggage. Had we not been elite members, we would have had luggage and seat issues.
Comments About:Iguazu Falls
(5 / 5)The trip was fabulous!
Thank you for the email. I have already reviewed Say Hueque on trip advisor on the general site, will add comments to the forum too.
I first learned about Say Hueque from the Internet - reviews and trip advisor.
I decided to travel with you because of your promptness in response, ease of working, good customer service and a good price. Seamless experience - everything was flawless and we did not have to worry.
My favorite hotel is Don Los Cerros at El Chalten - very nice hotel, luxurious, superb location and views, spa - hot tub, good service.
The best excursion was to Laguna De los tres - amazing trek up - difficult but exhilarating - worth the effort once we reached the top.
The trip was fabulous!

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

(5 / 5)You did a phenomenal job, all the best in everything!
Hello dear friends,
Thank you Patty, Vera & Yuna for organizing and helping us go through an unforgettable journey.
First learned about SayHeque in 2014 while searching for help organizing a tour from Brasil to Iguazu - I wrote to some companies and SayHeque were the most helpful and caring and organized. Chose to work with you because of good pass experience, the way you cared about my and my children's personal needs and being kind and informal and caring and your very good organizing and planning ability and choice of excursions.
The whole trip, for myself and my daughter Ma'ayan was a fantastic and unique experience - from the connection with you and the planning more than half a year ago to the recent planning to helping us and taking us through the trip - it was a joy working with you. Also a good planning of activities vs. time to rest.
The way you fixed and adjusted the whole itenerary - from the start, the choice of activities, places , tour companies, transfers - fantastic. Then taking care that all works and of course helping us when we got stuck because of a cancelled flight - the way you rescheduled rhings and cared for us - we felt like we have a family taking care of us in Buenos Aires while we are in the wilderness of Patagonia.
Thank you for the recommendations about things to do in spare time - when I followed them they were always very good.
Last 2 days in Buenos Aires which I planned myself were great too - and the way you organized things was the inspiration for me (and I always knew that if I have trouble I can call you)
There were many highlights - the best was helping us and rescheduling the plans when things got mixed up because of cancelled flight - also the feeling I got from you that I have someone I can trust in a far away country, especially as I was with a child. Of course many of the tours.
Our favorite hotel was actually Stella Australis ship - high class, great-unbelievable fantastic personal care, guidance and activity, of course Bahia Bustamante - staff and location and activities, also Kau-Yatun in El-Calafate (very helpful staff, fantastic facilities), Piren in P.Madryn (staff, location, facilities)
Almost all excursions were great but 3 stand out and were unforgettable - Stella Australis, Bahia Bustamante and Snorkeling with Lobos Marinos.
Punta Tumbo, Whale watching (actually they could do it better but the event itself is amazing) and Estancia Habersteron also fantastic.
Everybody on the Stella Australis, the guide on the Estancia Harbersteron tour, Gabriel on the Parque Nacional TDF tour, Matias and his guides in B.Bustamonte and the guides of Master Divers P.Madryn (Matias and the the girl in the reception - forgot her name, sorry). Also the guide on the Punta Tumbo tour (and the whole Huinca Travel agency staff) were great.
Also would like to thank the drivers : From BSAS EZE airport to AJP airport, drivers on the 2 TDF tours, driver on the Punta tumbo tour.
Not much to improve – just some comments: Peninsula Valdez and whale watching was a little bit rushed on one hand and time wasted on the other hand - the place changed and it should be let known that one cannot really see Elephant Seals from close by, and it was nice if whale watching was less crowded, explained better - and i would have gotten a better explanation about the option of buying DVD / photos of the experience. Patagonia IF hotel in Puerto Natales is not so good - nice and caring staff but bad facilities, sorry.
Again to team SayHeque - TODA RABA - may god bless you!!! See you again asap
(5 / 5)Patricio was an excellent Travel Agent !
I Chose say hueque because I was unable to make reservation via fantastico sur directly. I also got Feedback during the Tour that People who booked with fantastico sur were very upset as some reservations were Not made appropiately.
Overall I was happy to have made it via say hueque (just found it with Google)
Best refugio was Torre Central. Los cuernos was small and bar had very Limited options. Paine grande we just had a tent and showers were just ok.
Food was Vetter than I expected.
Patricio was an excellent Travel Agent who was always very fast to answer any Question I had.

(5 / 5)It was a fantastic holiday - thank you and all the team for organising everything so well and efficiently!
Thank you for your email.
It was lovely meeting you and we wish to thank you and all the team for organising everything so well and efficiently. Please find following answers to your questions
We found Say Hueque on the internet. We have always liked using travel agents in the country we are visiting because of their knowledge of their own country and all funds being spent go direct to the country we are visiting. Your prompt responses to our emails and suggestions were a major reason for our using your company.
All drivers and guides were punctual and the cars were of very good quality. The English of the guides was excellent, especially Victor, and his driver Eduardo, in Bariloche. Our guides and driver in Buenos Aires and Uruguay were also very good.
It was a fantastic holiday and it was made much easier with Say Hueque’s organisation.

(5 / 5)Patty and team at Say Hueque were truly marvelous. Patricio Rapaport the organizer of our trip was stunning.
We recently returned from a 13 days trip to Argentina. We used Say Hueque for the first time and are delighted with the customer service they provided prior and during our trip.
We picked Say Hueque from other travel agencies in Buenos Aires because of their professionalism, communications, accommodation to all our request (there were many) also they met our travel budget.
I was most impressed with the fact that they assigned a Destination Host to your trip and this person is attentive to all your needs during the trip. If there are any issues they are resolved quickly.
We had a hic up with our first day hotel. It was quickly resolved, we moved to a different hotel, the cost of the taxi was immediately reimbursed, and the group was treated to a dinner later in Calafate for our inconvenience.
We took five domestic flights and all transportation and airlines arrangements went smoothly.
We spent two days in Buenos Aires, visited the Iguazu Falls on both the Argentine and Brazilian side. Then traveled to Ushuaia; went trekking on Tierra del Fuego National Park and then paddling on a raft, they cook lunch for us and it was delicious. Also, visited Isla Martillo and saw penguins. Our next stop was Calafate, (our favorite city) and trekking on the Glacier Perito Moreno was the highlight of our trip. A MUST DO IF YOU VISIT ARGENTINA. Returned to Buenos Aires for two more days, visited El Tigre, City Tour and saw two Tangos (our favorite was Sr. Tango).
Our favorite hotel was Patios San Telmo in Buenos Aires and our least favorite and not recommended was L Hotel which we ended up leaving after one hour in the room.
Patty our Destination host ensure we had a very pleasant vacation and she was amazing. Patty and team at Say Hueque were truly marvelous.
Our driver Gaston Renso in Iguazu was extremely helpful, funny and respectful. Our other two guides Vanesa and Haydee were pleasant and knowledgeable.
Patricio Rapaport the organizer of our trip was stunning. He’s the main reason we choose Say Hueque. From the beginning of our tour negotiation, Patricio was prompt to respond to all our inquiries, he was informative and above all very patient with us and our many demands.
I will use Say Hueque again and highly recommend them if you are traveling to South America.
Best wishes and continued success.

(5 / 5)Gracias por la excelente organizacion!
Estimade Karen, Estimada Yuna,
Escribo en el nombre de la familia para exprimir neustras sensaciones de agradecimiento por la excelente organizacion, las excelentes sugerencias y la aparencia sin dificultades algunas de la ayuda en cada lugar por el cual pasamos. Una estrella mas por el restaurante Maria Lola en Ushuaia.
No usamos el auto Avis en Ushuaia porque parecio rapidamente que habia bastante y mas a hacer y visitar en la cuidad y alrededor que era al alcance de taxis y que un coche fuera solo un obstaculo.
Hemos polido el dedo del pie de la estatua del Tehuelche en Punta Arenas, y quando volvemos, o si un amigo pide consejo sobre metodos de organizar un viaje en Argentina, Chile o Patagonia, SayHueque sera mencionado inmediatamente.

(5 / 5)It was a great trip. Everything was organized well and efficiently from start to finish.
I first learned about Say Hueque through Google, I think.
I decided to travel with you because of the good reviews and that Say Hueque is based in Argentina with lots of information on the website that gave me confidence in your local knowledge. Everything was organized well and efficiently from start to finish.
L'Hotel is my favorite- picteresque, good location, friendly staff.
The best excursion was the Estancia Cristina hike through Canyon of Fossils. Beautiful scenery with views of glacier from the boat and 1st part of the hike, then the canyon with the spectacular rock colors and fossils. Last part through valley, not so exciting but we did come across a herd of horses. It was a great physical activity, not too strenous or difficult but just right!
Our guide Sergio from Puerto Madryn has te be mentioned. He was our guide for the Peninsula Valdez excursion and had lots of information that he shared at appropriate times. The next day on the Punto Tomba visit, we were with another guide, but kept crossing paths with Sergio (he had a small group) and he was again very friendly and talked with us quite a bit (without ignoring his own group of course!).
It was a great trip. I will make a post on TripAdvisor.
(5 / 5)Easter Island - Definitely different !
We went from Lima to Santiago to Easter Island before returning to Santiago where we will fly to Punta Arenas to catch the ship. Here are some shots from Easter Island. Some of them show the moai (statues) face down because that is how they were found by the later day explorers. They had been pushed over by raiding groups who had attacked. Several countries (Japan and USA included) have helped finance the restoring of many of them to the way they would have stood. There are about 3000 natives on the small island, and seem to be more Polynisian than anything else. Definitely different than the Chileans.
