This is the first time I have ever used an agency to book a trip for me but after using this company it won't be my last. Our travel agent planned a wonderful trip for my wife and I to visit our son, who was studying abroad in Argentina. We wanted to see the wine country and visit Patagonia but didn't know where to begin. What we got was the trip of a life time.
Our travel agent sent us a suggested itinerary and with minimal exceptions we went with her suggestions, and we are so glad we did. It was so nice being met at the airport by our drivers and many of them turned out to be our guides for the next day. It took away so much stress and allowed us to start enjoying our vacation immediately. The hotels we stayed at were beautiful and my description of them would probably be a disservice but, without exception they were little hidden gardens of solitude that we always look forward to returning to after a day of site seeing and eating our way through Argentina. Speaking of eating, our agent set us up on some amazing personal wine tours and every day we enjoyed some of the best prepared food in absolutely beautiful settings. Along with personal wine tours and gourmet meals, we had guided hikes up to amazing vistas, kayaking with a picnic lunch on an isolated beach, fly fishing on one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever been on, stayed on a working ranch, Eolo, in El Calafate(The best service in the world), walked on glaciers and boated around icebergs.
2 nights in Mendoza
2 nights in the Uco Valley
4 nights in Bariloche
3 nights in El Calafate (not enough)
1 night in Buenos Aires
If we took this trip again we would plan in more days for down time. In the Uco Valley we stayed at an architecturally perfect building in one of the placid spots you can imagine. We road bikes to the Corrazon Del Sol winery and ate at Gimenez Riili Family Bodega. By the time we got back to the hotel we were exhausted and ready for bed. I would plan at least one day of just reading, going to the spa and walking in the vineyard. Not just at this hotel but every hotel we stayed at. a few more down days would have been perfect.
