El viaje nos encantó y sobrepaso nuestras expectativas.

Estimada Carolina,

Gracias por todo el apoyo durante el viaje. Hoy es nuestro último día en la Argentina.

El viaje nos encantó y sobrepaso nuestras expectativas. El sur de Patagonia con su naturaleza y paisajes amplios, conservados y bellos nos recuerdan de lo importante que es garantizar la preservación de estos espacios para toda la humanidad.

El viaje se pasó muy bien, y el recogido preparado por Say Hueque nos permitió tener una inmersión en la Patagonia argentina y chilena, a un paso tranquilo y al mismo tiempo cubriendo mucho.

Lo que mas nos gusto fue el Chalten y la subida hacia el Firz Roy. Hermoso.

Chile - Torres del Paine - también es maravilloso. ahí, lo único que nos hubiera haber tenido mas informaciones era sobre las condiciones en los refugios. No esperábamos compartir la habitación, por ejemplo. Pero seguro esto fue porque el propio concepto de refugio presupone eso, y nosotros no lo conocíamos. En todos casos, hay mucha diferencia entre los refugios. El de las Torres tiene condiciones higiénicas que se pueden mejorar, y el de Paine Grande esta muy bueno.

La comida nos encantó. En el Calafate, el restaurante la Tablita es recomendado. La estancia Kau Yatun, un encanto.

Aquí siguen algunas fotos!

Gracias mas una vez.

My husband and I had a wonderful four week trip to Buenos Aires, Iguazu falls, Patagonia (Glaciers National Park, Torres del Paine, Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego National Park) with the help of Say Hueque.

My husband and I had a wonderful four week trip to Buenos Aires, Iguazu falls, Patagonia (Glaciers National Park, Torres del Paine, Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego National Park) with the help of Say Hueque.
It was our first time in Argentina and Chile, we don't speak Spanish, we are in our 70's, and we pefer solo travelling to tour groups.

Lucia and Pia and Agustina helped us put together an itinerary that I could never have done myself. They had lots of good ideas for hotels and tours (especially in Ushuaia) and a marvelous cruise on the Stella Australis from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia. It was great being met at the airports and bus and ship depots by their people or by the very helpful local agents. (I am used to arranging our travel to Europe, but there is much less English spoken in South America, though the people we encountered were always friendly and helpful.)
We loved the Bobo, a boutique hotel in Buenos Aires in a quiet, green part of the city, a easy walk to the Botanical Gardens and Evita Museum and close to Say Hueque office. It is easy to take the subway (Subte) to downtown, but it is another world down there: buskers, beggars, ...

If I could do the trip again:

I'd take more US $. As of December 2015, the ATM's capped withdrawals to small amounts of cash with big fees (this may change with the new government.)
Iguazu Falls: I'd start working on visas for Brazil much earlier (six weeks was not enough for the consulate in San Francisco, so we could not to see the Falls from the Brazilian side).
The Sheraton Hotel was a splurge but it was worth it. El Calafate: The trip to Perito Moreno Glacier was fabulous and we were lucky with beautiful weather. But having a second full day without prebooking another tour left us non-shoppers with not enough to do. At El Chalten, one needs to take advantage of iffy weather because it can be very bad this high in the mountains. Torres Del Paine: The Lago Grey Hotel (which I requested) is in a beautiful place but you'll need to plan ahead to get to other parts of the park; I might stay closer to Lake Pehoe and spend more time on the W hike. Either the boat ride to Perito Moreno, or the boat ride to Grey Glacier, but not both. Also, Much as I love Buenos Aires, if your main destination is TdP, it might be easier to fly by way of Santiago because getting from Argentine to Chile by bus was so slow because of the passport control. New Years Day in Punta Arenas was wasted. It turns out that Fernandez Bus company runs 365 days and we could have spent an extra day in TDP. Ushuaia: the hotel Altos Ushuaia is very comfortable with terrific views, but is a little far from town, about 10 minutes by taxi. You can also continue up the road by taxi to the base of the Glacier Martial ski area and walk up towards the glacier (I did not have time to go all the way.) I would skip the train Fin del Mundo. It is cute, but it was built to take prisoners to a meadow where they cut down the trees. This is not inspiring terrain, especially if you can go elsewhere in Tierra del Fuego NP. Yes, the wifi tended to be slow everywhere (satellite hookups) but the best 4 days were on Stella Australis with no wifi at all.

Thank you sending us the recipes and helping me and Eda for the entire trip. We enjoyed this trip very much.

Hi, Carolina.
Hope you are well. I have been back for two weeks. Thank you sending us the recipes and helping me and Eda for the entire trip. We enjoyed this trip very much.

Here is the answers from me.

Which hotel did you like the most?
I like the eco camp and Australis Cruise the best as it is a very unique compare to the other hotels. I also like Meridiano Sur Petit hotel, the bed is very comfortable and cleaned. They provide tea and water all day. The front desk was very helpful.

What was the best of traveling with us?
The reason we choose your tour operator b'cos you have many tour packages that you can help us to put them together.

Is there anything you think could be improved?
I think the tour package should included the national park fee especially it is part of the itienrary. I have to ask someone where to get the national park entrance ticket when I arrived Rapa Nui. When I went to the office, they were closed at 4pm and I have to go back again the next day.

As for the full day Rano Rakau & Anakena trip, it didn't include lunch and I have to ask the guide if I have to purchase my own lunch. I think in such a long day tour it would be great if the lunch is provided so that I don't have look around for food or wait in a long line.

As for the transportation arrangement, it might be a good idea to communicate with the front desk in advance and let the us know the pick up time when we arrive. There was a few times that we arrived late in the hotel and we still have to figure out the next day pick up time.

Time, communications and transportation arrangement are very important to us as a traveller. We travel from one place to another to these new and unfamiliar places. It is going to take extra time to figure out where to find the location or who to call. It would be very helpful if your tour operator can work on these areas. I am sure it will definitely help our trip goes more smoothly in the future.


P/S: It would be great if your tour operator can give us further discount especially we added so many package in this trip.

We have no hesitation in recommending Say Hueque to anyone planning an independent trip to Argentina and Chile

We have no hesitation in recommending Say Hueque to anyone planning an independent trip to Argentina and Chile. They organized a travel itinerary for us that met our particular needs. We were especially impressed that they were able to organize transport from remote locations where public transport or tour buses were not convenient. Say Hueque were also excellent in suggesting and organizing travel and accommodation options at short notice and very responsive to our needs. We spent almost 2 months in Argentina and Chile and we were very happy with the service provided by Say Hueque. There were no surprise extra fees and, in talking to other travellers about costs, we believe we got great value for money.

We will recommend you agency to others and hopefully return to Argentina one day ourselves.

Dear Florencia,

Thanks for getting in touch.

We had a great experience with Say Hueque. Everyone we dealt with including Patricio, Yuna and yourself was extremely helpful and responsive. The travel arrangements went smoothly and the pre-trip reading materials were comprehensive and helpful. . We really enjoyed all the organized tours and the local guides were excellent. The Bobo, Hostaria Senderos and Los Sauces hotels were excellent. However we did not really like the Arakur (which we selected). While the room design was very modern and stylish and the indoor spa looked nice, the hotel felt big, cold, empty and unfinished and was far from the center. We would not recommend it to others.

There were only 2 small points of confusion. You had indicated that there was only one other early morning bus back to El Calafate from El Chalten. However there are lots of other busses and Huellas del Sur booked us on an earlier bus at 6 pm. The 6 pm bus did not provide door to door service so we just took at taxi back to Los Sauces. The only other thing was that while my pick up to go to the airport on January 16 was scheduled for 17:30 the driver came at 16:30. Luckily we had just arrived at the Casa Calma hotel so I just went to the airport early.

We will recommend you agency to others and hopefully return to Argentina one day ourselves.

Best regards.

Barbara

Everything went smoothly and according to plan and we saw and did some amazing things,

Hi Carolina,

By the time you will read this, the Say Hueque part of our tour will have ended, so I would like to thank you, Yuna and Vera for taking very good care of us.

Everything went smoothly and according to plan and we saw and did some amazing things, like the hiking and rowing in Tierra del Fuego National Park.

And along the way, we made several new friends from all over the world, who had also booked their trip through your company and with whom we had the pleasure to share several trips.



We were indeed looking forward to seeing the falls, of which we already got a first glimpse, when the pilot circled the falls several times before landing. From what I've heard, that is pretty exceptional.

And today, we got to see them up close and they were spectacular.

So, to end, I would like to express my thanks to you, But also to Yuna and Vera for everything you've done to make this trip an unforgettable experience.

Best regards and take care,

Kris
