We had a wonderful 6 day trip to the Mendoza region that was organized by the travel company in Argentina. The itinerary included 2 1/2 days in the Uco Valley and 3 1/2 days in Lujan de Cuyo. It was a wonderful combination of wine tasting/touring and outdoor experiences, some on private tours, some on our own. All the guided tours were with excellent guides and drivers. We owe much of the wonderful experiences to the guidance and recommendations of the travel planner. Even though it is clear the travel planner is very knowledgeable in planning and organizing entire itineraries, he was willing to work with us in areas where we wanted to be on our own (some dinners, renting a car etc). He gave us his recommendations on everything from where to stay, restaurants etc. All his recommendations and tours that he organized for us were really perfect for our expectations. He is also really responsive and easy to deal with. I highly recommend the travel planner and the travel company and would use him for future trips.
The highlights included a day at the Quebrada del Condor - combined hiking on a private 6000 hectare ranch (horseback riding is also available) with condor/falcon sightings as well as a delicious asado for lunch. The guide and host (owner of the ranch) were very welcoming and interesting people. We also spent a day going to see (not climb obviously) Aconcagua, a magnificent mountain. There was a short hike in Aconcagua National Park that enabled us to have a spectacular view of Aconcagua (on a sunny day), The other guided tour was a day of wine tasting (two wineries and another winery for a spectacular 5 course meal with wine pairing). We found the whole area very accessible - the restaurants were superb and wineries very interesting and diverse.
I would extend the trip, maybe going to the Salta region or just spend more time in other parts of Argentina. However, this really was not an option this time, so we will be back.
