Argentina is a great country

This letter is to tell you how well planned our trip was!. Our guides were always on time when meeting us at the airports, and they were always prompt when taking us on tours. They were very pleasant, very knowledgeable, and enjoyed the children. Argentina is a great country. All of our internal flights were as scheduled, and we were told that at some of our staffers in the country the weather was exceptionally good, such as in El Calafate, Torres del Paine and Iguazu clear, no wind, no rain. I even liked the weather in Ushuaia drizzled and snow, very atmospheric! So thank you, on the behalf of all of us, for a fabulous, fabulous trip!

Argentina will always hold a special place in my heart.

We are moving to a new home and I have been going through our many travel folders. One remains dear to my heart and that is the trip you planned for us to Argentina. It will be remembered as the best planned and culturally memorable trip that we have taken. You did an excellent job arranging our trip while our tour guides provided an outstanding feeling of the country and its people. I would like to thank you for this experience. Argentina will always hold a special place in my heart.

We had a fantastic time in Argentina!!

We had a fantastic time in Argentina!! Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into getting us all from different corners of the world into one place at the same time! Everything went smoothly. The transfers, guides and tours were very interesting and the guides really went out of their way to assist and direct us. We had Claudia in Buenos Aires and Marta in Bariloche. She even had us share yerba mate from her gourd. My favorite place in Buenos Aires was Palermo Soho, and in Bariloche the day trip on the lake with a hike to the waterfalls was amazing. The city tour in Buenos sites was very informative and gave a good overview of the different areas. We then were able to independently plan our days free to spend as we wanted. The tango show was very impressive the harbor area, Puerto Madero, had an amazing restaurant where we had an elaborate buffet lunch with huge amounts of food and great steak. Bariloche was cold and rainy this time of year, but we were geared for it and thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride and hike. The town is too cute with lots of chocolates, we surely enjoyed that!!
