I cannot say enough about our tour operator and our travel agent. Our trip was amazing because of our agent's guidance and his suggestions in planning the trip were fantastic. He probed our interests and planned the trip to meet these interest and have the kind of experiences that we'll always remember. During the trip, he was there for us, meeting us for lunch the first day and keeping in touch all the way either by phone or email. Because of his personal involvement, we knew we were never alone. The guides he provided were marvelous. For a city tour, we had someone well versed in the history of the country and city. We collect unusual contemporary sculpture and paintings and hoped to be able to find some interesting work that we could bring home. I sent our agent several images of the kind of art we collected, and the guides he provided were wonderful. They took us only to galleries and studios of artists whose work was in keeping with our interest. We were able to buy work and the guides helped us to ship the work back to the U.S. Our guide in Salta was extraordinary - he knew everything about everything. The hotels he recommended were perfect. This was truly a memorable trip.
It's hard to say. This was a wonderful trip. We loved Buenos Aires. Salta was amazing. Mendoza and our visits to wineries was great. We had great fun visiting with a number of artists and were able to buy sculpture and paintings which will always remind us of our trip. One highlight was a lunch in a small town in the province of Salta. Our guide asked if we would like to have a meal in a local restaurant in someone's home. He said he didn't usually take people there, but he thought we'd enjoy it - and, boy, was that an understatement. We loved it! It was the kind of experience one could only have on this kind of personalized itinerary - and it is something we'll always remember.
I probably would not go to Valparaiso (this was our second time there) again, but would try to see more of Chile.
