Our trip started on November 7, 19 with our first stop at Santiago del Chile. Our guide (from a local agency) spent two wonderful days with us. Even though our visit at Valparaiso had to be cancelled due to some street riots, the travel specialist has secured a visit at a winery in Casablanca Valley, as well as a winery where we had a tour, vine testing and a very good lunch.
Our next stop was at Puntas Arenas, from which a minivan had taken us to the Hotel in the Las Torres Del Paine . The hotel and the staff were wonderful, very attentive and provided all services with big smiles. Our first hike to Las Torres took us a whole day but what a view we did experience ... we will never forget the Las Torres view and excellent guides hotel had provided.
From Las Torres the minivan had taken us to El Calafate where next morning we were met by our guide - a wonderful lady, very experience and knowledgable tourist guide - we highly recommend her services. We spent a day visiting Glaciar Perito Moreno. We spent two night at a Boutique Hotel, a very classy yet modern hotel.
From El Calafate we took a short flight to Ushuaia, where we stayed at a hotel. Our trip to see the penguins and other water animals was very well organized (the captain of the boat could wear a more professional cloths but then he was a captain......).
From Ushuaia we traveled to Iguazu via Buenos Aires. The Suites Hotel was spectacular; it was situated literary in the middle of jungle with lavish green vegetation in front of our balcony. The Iquazu Falls are impossible to describe, one needs to see them from both Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Our private guide was superb - extremely intelligent, knowledgable, resourceful and very helpful - we highly recommend his services.
Our last stop was at Buenos Aires where we met our guide, a very educated city guide. We had a wonderful time with her and highly recommend her services as well. The Tango Show was superb, not to mentioned a very tasteful meal.
We, Peter and I have planed this trip for a long time and with your help it was the trip we will never forget.
In Buenos Aires we met with our travel planner from this travel company; she was interested in our comments and suggestions with regards to provided itinerary. It is always better to provide more details rather than less or information which is not quantifiable. For example: "At appropriate time."..... rather than around 3 pm the van (it is important also to specify what van?) will pick you up from the airport. This example is for the Puntas Arenas airport where nobody was waiting for us......
Overall, our trip was fantastic and we will always remember it. Thank you for making it happen.
I have already reached out to your office for the itinerary for our next trip to Japan in September 2020.
