Tour Overview

Visit the best of Waterfalls and Wineries in Argentina. This trip will begin in Buenos Aires, traveling to Iguazu Falls and then conclude in Mendoza, an important vineyard region in Argentina. Mendoza, founded by Spanish colonists more than four centuries ago, is a city rich in history, culture, and wine cultivation. The city is also home to America’s highest mountain, the Aconcagua. In Iguazu Falls we will explore both the Argentinean and Brazilian side of the falls. In Buenos Aires we will visit a typical estancia and attend a lively tango show.

Whilst of modern construction and dynamic activity, Buenos Aires has managed to preserve old traditions and charming corners. One is fascinated by the atmosphere, the individual personality of each of its neighborhoods, the cordiality of its people and the wide selection of its cultural and commercial opportunities. Buenos Aires, close to the splendid countryside surrounding it, is the great cosmopolitan doorway to South America. The Plaza de Mayo is the hub of activity in the city, while nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world’s widest avenue. Avenida Santa Fe houses the world’s most fashionable boutiques.

 

The Iguazu Falls and National Park are the largest in the Americas, surrounded by an amazing wildlife preserve in the middle of the jungle. The deep flowing waters of the river fall from a height of thirty feet through almost three hundred falls over two miles.

 

Mendoza, founded by Spanish colonists more than four centuries ago, is a city rich in history and culture.

We will tour Mendoza’s most renowned wine cellars and observe their intricate elaboration process, and will gape at the awe inspiring size of Mt. Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the American continent. We will also visit Puente del Inca, another natural wonder which lies in this Andean landscape.

Testimonials

Sue

Traveled March, 2008

We really enjoyed all the hotels and the tours you recommended!

Thanks for checking in. We had an excellent time in Chile and Argentina. Everything worked out perfectly. It was very comforting to have someone meet us in each city and facilitate our tours, while allowing us plenty of time on our own. All of the transfers and pick-ups were perfectly on time and were with very kind and helpful guides and drivers. Our only problem was in Chicago on our way home when our flight was cancelled, but there was really nothing anyone could do at that point. Otherwise everything was great! We really enjoyed all the hotels and the tours you recommended and look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks again!
