We just returned from a fabulous trip to Argentina which was booked with Zicasso and a local travel partner. Everything went perfectly! We had a little over 2 weeks time and wanted to see as many areas as possible. Our travel planner from this tour company planned everything perfectly!
Two planners from this tour company met us at the hotel in Buenos Aires and went thru the final itinerary details with us including going over the map of Buenos Aires and suggesting areas to visit. The detailed planning enabled us to maximize our time visiting Iguazu Falls, seeing the beatiful lakes and mountains around Bariloche, experiencing El Calafate and the amazing Glacier National Park including the Perito Moreno and Upsala glaciers, finally arriving at Ushuaia on Tierra del Fuego for a memorable cruise on the Beagle Chanel where we saw penguins, sea lions, whales and the lighthouse at the end of the world.
We also had 2 days in Buenos Aires at the beginning and end of the trip. The tour of Buenos Aires was perfect in every way helping us make the most of every minute. Every tour guide and driver was knowledgeable and a delight! The tango lesson and show started a fascination with tango. When we returned to Buenos Aires, we went to several Milongas to experience real life tango!
We are dreaming of returning to Argentina!
There were many enjoyable moments. To name just a few: The trip started with an excellent tour of Buenos Aires and the day ended with a tango lesson followed by a spectacular Tango Show at restaurant. Iguazu Falls and the hotel were a delight! Words can't express the wonderous beauty and majesty of Argentina's Glacier National Park and of viewing glaciers and icebergs up close. Cruising the Beagle Channel one on the smaller boats was another highlight. We hadn't expected to see whales and that was the frosting on the cake. Starting and ending the trip from Buenos Aires, the Paris of the Americas - and capital of the tango - was a treat in itself. It was a great trip!
Our trip was action packed, full of fun and wonderful sights. The one thing I would do differently is choose to see the 2000 year old Native American art on Victoria Island or if possible, take a day trip to Cueva de Las Manos rather than go to Puerto Blest. Puerto Blest is pretty and the waterfall was nice but after visiting Iguazu, somewhat anti-climactic. The ancient art would have been interesting and meshes with a long time interest in art.
