“Hi! We had a wonderful time visiting your wonderful country!!! The 3 hotels we enjoyed the most were Los Colorados Cabanas in Purmamarca, the location was great,
the breakfast had freshly squeezed orange juice, the hotel clerk was so nice and the building was so different. We also liked Lares de Chacra in Chacras de Coria outside of Mendoza.
We had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and they provided a glass of wine which we enjoyed on our balcony. We also found L'Hotel Palermo to be very nice in Buenos Aires. the desk clerk was great
and they had a nice breakfast. We really enjoyed all the tours that you provided for us. The hotel in Bariloche I would not recommend, Costas del Nahuel, - I spent the entire day writing reviews on Trip Advisor and so now I am worn out. That hotel
needed new carpets and the only good thing was it had a nice view of the lake but the breakfast was also quite bad. The hotel in Puerto Iguazu - Posada del Jacaranda was also very nice and only 2 years old.

Everything your agency did was great, the guides all met us at the airport as planned. We really liked the wine guide, Vicente R. Cardusa through Sak Wine tours, he is very knowledgable and very personable.

WE truly enjoyed all the excursions since they all involved beautiful countryside and views which is what we enjoy. I think it is very important when traveling the Andes up to Purmamarca to spend the night there.
Most people do this all in one day from Salta and I am glad you recommended that we stay in Purmamarca, it is also such a lovely small town. We are so glad we had time to do some small hike near by our hotel too.

Thank you for the recipes I certainly will try them!!!!”

“Dear Patty,

We learned about Say Hueque through the Internet as we looked for Argentina travel agents and looked at the comments. Say Hueque seemed like a good fit for 2 people traveling on their own and not speaking any Spanish.

Appreciated the pickup at the airports - that can always be a hassle. But really enjoyed the quality of the guides that we had. ALL were really enjoyable and knowledgeable on the areas we explored.

Our favorite hotel is Casa Sur Bellini Hotel in Buenos Aires - like the location, quality of room and breakfast was really delightful - the front desk and staff were very helpful as well.

All excursions were really good! But would have to say the day at Iguazu Falls was just phenomenal - just could never imagine the amount/strength of THAT MUCH WATER!!! Patty was pretty awesome - felt we could be in contact with her on any of our needs/concerns - but then each of the guides really did a nice job - would use any of them again.

REALLY ENJOYED OUR FIRST TRIP TO ARGENTINA - WE'LL BE BACK!!

Thank you ALL again for such a memorable trip!!”
2 Star Hotel at Cauques de Nimez
Today, Southern Patagonia welcomes you with open arms. El Calafate is a jumping-off point for adventure travelers who chace to unearth the most spellbinding natural wonders of Patagonia, like the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The Perito Moreno glacier is one of the only glaciers in the world that’s still advancing. Though it’s not the only glacier in the area is the one that made the city of El Calafate famous worldwide. For many years now, El Calafate has been considered capital of the glaciers. Located at the shore of Lago Argentino (the southernmost, largest Patagonian lake) it’s also home of the Spegazzini glacier, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the Upsala glacier, named Glaciar del Gigante (Giant’s glacier) upon its discovery and the biggest glacier that sits at the mouth of Lake Argentino.

Is El Calafate all about the glaciers? Well, yes and no…glaciers are main attractions that you can visit via hiking or a boat ride. But you have lot more to discover about Argentine rural culture. From Calafate you can also visit a typical Patagonian finca (ranch) and learn all about the gaucho culture and enjoy a great asado (barbecue). You’ll soon realize that Calafate is much more than the gateway to the Perito Moreno glacier. Upon arrival you will be taken to the hotel and have the rest of the day to relax or explore the surroundings.
2 Star Hotel at Cauquenes de Nimez
In the morning, we’ll drive you to Glaciers National Park to take the 6 hour long Perito Moreno Glacier tour. Get prepared to play with the giants!

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981 and home to 200 approximately glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field after Antarctica. You will travel 40 km (about 25 miles) from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe.

Once inside the park you will take the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel really close to the Perito Moreno Glacier. If you’re lucky, you may get to see a piece of ice break off and fall from the glacier wall to sink forever into the lake. During about one hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know…and things you might have never thought about.

After this visit you will take a boat ride that will take you close enough to fully appreciate the 80 meter (262 feet) high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

Adventure in El Calafate has all colors and shapes. For your free day our suggestion is to get those wheels and keep on exploring.

Ten minutes away town stands a 900 metres high hill from where you can get stunning views of Lake Argentino, Mount Fitz Roy and Torre. Take a day tour (not included) to ride in a 4×4 right to the top and spot the Perito Moreno Glacier emerging little by little form La Cordillera de los Andes (The Andes Range).

It’s also a place to find archeological treasures (like millenary shark teeth or petrified oysters) from different geological periods of Earth. For the second part of the trip, you’ll get on your mountain bike to get back to El Calafate. On the way you’ll stop to grab a bite, take pictures, spot wild guanacos and challenge your riding abilities through climbing or crossing marshes and little lagoons till reaching civilization again—Nature, history and adventure, all in one trip!

If you would to add this tour for your free day, just let your travel agent know.

In the early morning, we’ll pick you up to start your trip to Chile and your full day visit to Torres del Paine National Park. It’s a long day but it worth every minute.

First, we’ll drive through the Patagonian steppe in an overland during 2.30 hours (you might be able to see rheas, guanacos, Patagonian hare, and even condors!) till reaching the border to Chile at Cancha Carrera, where we’ll go through customs. Things to take into account: it is not allowed to take any fresh food, plants, seeds, etc. from Argentina to Chile. They are very strict, and fines can be high. If you are not sure if something is allowed or not, please declare it (they will provide you with a form) and they will inform you if you can carry it or not.

We’ll keep on traveling amid isolated and windy landscapes, occasionally punctuated by guanacos and native green-orange tinted bushes: here you’ll truly feel the momentous solitude which characterized Patagonia.

The park won’t amaze you at first sight. Like a shide lover, it will unveil its enthralling natural beauties little by little. Through winding road, we’ll make different stops to have a close up view of Cascada Paine (Paine Waterfall), Paine Range at Lake Sarmiento and of Paine Horns at Lake Nordenskjold. Depending on the weather, we’ll perform a 1 hour long walk to reach the lake and get closer to the striking horns. At midday, and after having stopped by the Lago Pehoé Viewpoint to gaze the vastness of French Valley, we’ll have our box lunch at this mountainous backdrop.

At the end of this fabled excursión, we’ll take you back at El Calafate and leve you at your hotel. Rest a litlle and go out to enjoy your last evening in town.
