We were treated like we were family by our South American travel company. From the first moment we met them in the airport in Buenos Airies to the last minutes before we left Santiago, they were making sure that our experience was top notch. They provided a cell phone for our use that had been programmed with our travel executive's phone number and electrical adapters for our use. When it was time for us to leave, I asked about how to return them and they told us to leave them with my daughter and son-in-law who were continuing to travel in Chile after my husband and I returned home. They went out of their way to be accommodating to us in every possible way. Each time we left a city, it was difficult to say goodbye to our guides who had become more like friends. I will use Zicasso again to find agencies in other countries I want to visit. I can't imagine traveling without this level of service in the future.
We enjoyed every experience, but the Tango lessons and show In Buenos Aires were extremely entertaining. The boat trip to the base of Iguazu Falls was by far the most memorable experience! The wine tours and gourmet lunches were spectacular in Mendoza as was our stay at the wine lodge. The hotel in Salta provided extremely good service and was the cutest place we had ever seen. The landscapes of northern Argentina took our breath away as did crossing the Andes into Chile. The Pre-Columbian Museum in Santiago, Chile was the best museum I have ever toured. We saw 6000 year old mummies and incredibly well displayed textiles, pottery, jewelry, and tools. All the signage was in both Spanish and English, so we were able to fully enjoy what we were seeing.
We probably would have opted to stay at another hotel in Iguazu Falls so that we could have enjoyed the views of the falls at different times of the day. Also, the length of time to cross the border (by car) from Argentina to Chile was excessive (2.5 hours,) However, the views before and after the border crossing were so spectacular, I'm not sure that I would have wanted to do it by plane.
