(4 / 5)I am having a good time!
I am having a good time! Despite a lot of rain, I enjoyed my excursions to Puerto Blest yesterday, and Victoria Island today. I didn't feed the sea gulls, but enjoyed watching them. I couldn't stay out on the deck long, as the wind was quite strong and cold! The waterfalls and the Arrayanas Forest were my favorite parts, and I found the history and nature of Victoria Island quite fascinating.
For some reason, Barlan did not give me travel vouchers for Victoria Island, so I called Eduardo this morning, and he personally delivered them to the hotel.
I am fine at this hotel. The room is spacious and nice. However, there is a disco across the street that is quite loud, and young partying drunks are yelling in the street at 4:00a.m. All the employees have been nice, with the exception of one gentleman at the reception desk last night, who was very short and impacient with me when I asked him if he could possibly reset the internet for the second floor, as it was not working. I think I interrupted him watching a TV program.
I am not complaining, because for the most part, I am very comfortable here in the hotel, but I thought you might want my honest feedback for future customers of Say Hueque.
I have already fully planned my day tomorrow, but appreciate your suggestions :-) I'm looking forward to my short circuit excursion of Bariloche. I will also doing a city tour and some shopping.
(5 / 5)I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
As requested, here are some comments about our trip to Argentina.
The services you provided to us (airplane tickets, hotel in Iguazu, visit to the falls and visit to the "misiones") were excellent as advertised.
All the travel agents at Say Hueque whom we had dealings with were very helpful and thorough.
We enjoyed our trip to Argentina very much, in particular to Mendoza after crossing the Andes by bus from Santiago (Chile), to Iguazu and the extraordinary falls, and finally to Buenos Aires, with a little excursion to Tigre and the Delta.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
(5 / 5)I felt very safe the entire time and like I was cared for well,
I'm still here in Buenos Aires. I leave on Friday though how sad. But sure, I'd love to give some feedback.
Say Hueque helped make all of my travel plans a lot easier. I didn't have to worry about transportation once I arrived to my location or where I was going to stay. I felt very safe the entire time and like I was cared for well, which means a lot to me since I'm a young college student traveling in foreign country. I really liked the place we stayed at in Mendoza (Bohemia Hotel); it had personal homey touches and was very comfortable. It was also in a great location because we only had to walk a few blocks to get to some really great restaurants and bars. What I really liked about traveling with Say Hueque was that we could customize our trip: for Iguazu, my friends and I decided to skip out on the Brazilian side of the falls because we didn't want to pay the pricey visa, so Say Hueque switched up our plan and threw in a really fun trekking and zip-lining excursion.
The only recommendation that I would have isn't really a problem but it might help if you come across travelers who prefer to buy their own flights with the trips. As a student, I have access to slightly cheaper flights from various agencies, so I bought my flights separately for both my trips with Say Hueque. The only issue was that I didn't have guidelines/suggestions for when to buy the flights so my flight times were way off from some of the activity/excursion end times. After we finished in Iguazu, my friends and I waited for four hours at our hotel until we were picked up for our flight. Like I said, not really y'alls problem since we bought the flights but maybe if you give travelers who buy their own flights suggestions on when to schedule them, it would help make everything easier.
Hope this helps, and thank you for a wonderful experience.

(4 / 5)Amazing Trip. Good Value
Here is our testimonial that we were happy to write and express our feelings. We extend our congratulations to Cecilia, Veronica and team Say Hueque for putting together a wonderful trip. We choose the 21 day Patagonian adventure plus 4 days in Rio de Janeiro for our 25th wedding anniversary.
The honey moon vacation went very well thanks to the co-operating agencies along with a competent, energetic and caring Say Hueque staff. We were especially impressed with the smooth transfers, central location of all our hotels, their quality and most of all the hospitality of the Argentinean people.z We covered a lot of ground and had no problems whatsoever.
(5 / 5)All the places that I visited were amazing. I would like to convey my gratitude here. Thank you very much!!
Thanks for the message.
All the places that I visited were amazing,
but among them, I particularly liked Ibera wetland
(although getting there in a rainy day was extremely tough).
It was such an unique ecosystem with a large variety of animals, where floating marsh creates different scenery everyday in a huge lagoon, which was absolutely unforgettable.
Attached are a few pictures from there.
I found Say Hueque to be extremely organized and helpful from the beginning to the end, and tour coordinators were always available.
I would like to convey my gratitude here. Thank you very much!!
Comments About:Iguazu Falls
(4 / 5)I was extremely happy with my trip. I loved everything I have seen and I met many lovely people.
My trip back home was fine, although I wish I had another couple of weeks off to travel in South America :)
As I was telling you over the phone, I was extremely happy with my trip. I loved everything I have seen and I met many lovely people. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to my friends who share my travel style. Below you find a couple of specific comments.
I really enjoyed the landscape on the tour to Humahuaca etc but I thought the tour was long and a lot of time was spent on the bus. On the other hand, the tour to Cachi had the perfect length (in fact, I was happy it was after the long day to Humahuaca) and the landscape was also extraordinary. If it’s possible, I would include a trekking tour, just to get a break from all the time on the bus :) I’m sure places like Cuesta del Obispo are great for hiking :)
I loved the tours in San Pedro! Also the bus ride from Salta to San Pedro goes through breath-taking places. The owner of Hostal Katarpe is just great! She constantly checked that everything was fine with me and was extremely kind.
As for the 3 day tour to salar de Uyuni, it was one of the best trip I’ve ever had! And believe me, I’ve had quite a few :) Our driver, Valerio, was very skilled and a lovely person to talk to.
Thank you very much for all the time you have dedicated to me and for your work! I really appreciate it.
Wishing you all the best,
Comments About:Atacama & Uyuni
(5 / 5)The best thing about traveling with Say Hueque was definitely having a planned itinerary without having anything to worry about
How are you? Sorry for the late response, taking awhile to adjust back to the States. Regarding feedback, would you like me to write a review on TripAdvisor or another forum? I also attached a few of my favorite pictures from my trip.
Here are the answers to your questions:
Which hotel did you like the most?
For the hotel quality, definitely Patios de Lerma in Salta! The only problem was that is was too far from the city center (11 blocks away). I also liked the service I received at Patagonia Jarke in Ushuaia. The hotel staff was so nice and so helpful!
What was the best of traveling with us? Is there anything you think could be improved?
The best thing about traveling with Say Hueque was definitely having a planned itinerary without having anything to worry about. It was reassuring having a driver pick me up/drop me off at the airport and also having a laid out plan everyday. All the excursions were top notch and the guides were always so helpful and knowledgeable. In regards of improvements, it would be nice to have a contact during off hours (weekends and after hours) to help answer any questions or concerns. Also, some of the hotels I stayed at were quite far from the city center.
Thanks so much for the recipe, do you know how the empanada wrappers are made of or how to make them?
How was your trip to Turkey?? I LOVED your pictures! Hope you had a great time and I want to hear all about it!
I also attached some of my favorite pics from my Argentina trip.
(4 / 5)I would probably check with Say Hueque again for other South American travel
I wanted to let you know how our trips that we booked through Say Hueque went. Our journey to Colonia, Uruguay was wonderful and our guide, Mattais was very informative.
However, we did miss our ferry back to Buenos Aires and had to stay in Colonia an extra 4 hours. Our guide was uninformed as to the change of schedule for the ferry. Apparently it had changed to the Winter schedule just before our trip. This did cause us to miss a planned event back in Buenos Aires that evening, but we had to choose to make the best of it. I would strongly suggest making sure that the guides are aware of the schedules at all times and plan accordingly.
Our trip to Iguazu was great also...our guide Gaston was equally informative and helpful. We were quite disappointed that we were not booked on the early flight going to Iguazu and had to rearrange our itinerary and felt rushed through the falls tour. We were unable to take advantage of the breakfast provided because we had to leave the hotel so early to begin our tour. We got to see everything but with no time to linger, we had to be VERY scheduled in order to complete the tour before having to leave for our flight back to Buenos Aires. Although seeing the falls was spectacular we did not feel as though we received our moneys worth.
I was very satisfied with all the communication before the trip and the ability to reach someone when we had a problem. It seems as if you all try hard to ensure things go well. I wanted to make sure you knew of our experience and can make changes in the future. I would probably check with Say Hueque again for other South American travel. Please forward this on to your company managers so that they can be made aware of things.
(5 / 5)You provided transportation between airport and hotel, etc and this transportation was excellent! Arrived on time, reliable.
Juan, here is the feedback you requested.
1. We enjoyed the trip.
2. Vera and Yuna were very helpful.
3. You provided transportation between airport and hotel, etc, and this
transportation was excellent! Arrived on time, reliable.
4. Hotel Bobo was excellent. very helpful staff. the bed and bedding was outstanding.
5. Iguazu falls was scheduled on a weekend. That was a mistake. It should have been
Buenos Aires on a weekend and Iguazu on week days.
6. The Falls were great, but the town was boring. Our flight back to BA should have
been in the morning, not the afternoon.
7. The lodge de la Selva in Iguazu was fairly good.
8. In BA, the Tango show in the evening was an excellent show.
9. We went to a jazz club in BA and enjoyed it.
10. We liked the antique store area in San Telmo.
Hope this helps..... Richard
(5 / 5)Thanks for your help in putting together this enjoyable vacation
We had a great time. Jasy hotel was good and we liked being in town and able to walk 10-15 min to most Iguazu restaurants and a good coffee house too. Yacutinga eco-lodge was a great experience! Wish we had one more day there.
The internal flight and connections all went well. The eco-lodge had changed the Iguazu pickup point recently, but Argacam went to the old (nearby) pick-up point. The eco-lodge figured it out, however.
We stayed at the Art Suites in BA. Spacious apartment, excellent wi-fi, breakfast included and a very reasonable price. Very close to Recoleta, restuarants, etc.
We did the South bike trip through you and enjoyed that very much.
We really enjoyed the restaurants in BA too. It is a good idea to bring USD to Argentina. Some of the restaurants offer a discount and excellent exchange rate for USD, while the ATMs all charge $6 USD for a withdrawal, give the official exchange rate, and we were limited depending on the bank to only 1,500 or 1,000 pesos per withdrawal.
