Pat & Noel’s Trip to Argentina – Nov. 4 – 20, 2015
Our Argentine adventure was a trip of a lifetime for my husband and me, thanks in large part to our travel agents , the owners of this travel company.
We've both traveled extensively but never have we enjoyed ourselves so much without having to concern ourselves with any of the travel logistics. From start to finish, all trip details were "magically" handled by our agents. They provided all transfers and boarding passes for in-country flights, and arranged for drivers and private guides to take us to our various excursions. Our agent even met us at the airport when we first arrived in Buenos Aires and gave us a cell phone to contact her 24/7 should we encounter any problems!
We felt so well taken care of and free to enjoy the personalized itinerary our agent developed for us. We experienced the lush rainforests and magnificent waterfalls of Iguazu. We visited a working estancia created by the El Calafate founders and sampled delicious barbecued Argentine beef and lamb there. We hiked around the spectacular and other-worldly glaciers and mountains of Patagonia and viewed icebergs and glaciers close-up during amazing boating excursions. We attended an unforgettable tango event, learned how to prepare several wonderful local dishes during a fun private cooking class, and participated in many other fantastic cultural and culinary activities in Buenos Aires and Mendonza.
At every stop, we enjoyed fascinating and often breathtaking excursions led by local experts. Without exception, these local guides were superb -- extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their areas and very warm and friendly. Never could we have found such professional and wonderful guides on our own!
All our hotels were perfect for us -- small and luxurious, infused with local history and culture, in great locations. Probably our favorite was Finca Adalgisa in Mendoza. Located on a small vineyard, this hotel is stunning and has its own winery. Our agent made sure to inform the staff that it was my birthday during our stay and we were upgraded to the largest suite, overlooking the vineyard and swimming pool. On my birthday, our travel agent reserved the best table for us at a wonderful winery -- Ruca Malen -- where we enjoyed a sumptuous 5-course feast with wine pairings. It was truly fantastic and a culinary highlight of our trip.
On a personal note, our agents are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet – as well as being extremely professional and well-connected in the Argentine tourism industry. We’re very thankful we entrusted them with our trip planning and arrangements. We give our agents our highest recommendation.
Wouldn't change a thing. It was truly our dream vacation!
