Walk along the boardwalk as the magnificent glacier creaks and calves into Lake Argentina, and take a boat cruise close enough to feel the crisp breeze from the ice face! If you feel inspired, try the "Big Ice" tour and hike on top of the glacier!
Experience a trip of a lifetime in Patagonia.
Given that we did not want to be part of a larger tour group (12-16 people), this approach worked best for us. The booking staff (Lucia and Yuna) and our in-country hostess (Ursula) were all available prior to and during our trip, which made this "bucket-list" 18-day vacation very easy for us at a more-than-competitive cost.
We would recommend Say Hueque to anyone (and already have).”
The hotel at the falls was by far the better of the two – the staff there was also excellent.
The hotel in Buenos Aires (L’Hotel) for us was a bit below standard. The staff was very good and provided us with everything we needed, but the facility was poor for us. The concept was good and breakfast great, but the rooms were very small – the first night in the superior room was better, but the last two night was tough with luggage all over the floor.
The falls were by far the best but we had to cut our tour short due to the heat – it was far too hot to continue on the second day.
We had two guides from the company and both exceeded our expectations.
In general, all expectations were met – the transfers, Tango show, etc were very good
The only negative was the hotel remembering that the staff, cleanliness, and overall appearance was good, just the size and layout was, to us, a little below standard.”
We had SUCH an amazing honeymoon thanks to you guys..we appreciate every last detail from the prompt pickups to the late check out at some point, and the kindness everyone on your team has showed us.
After doing a lot of research on which spots of Argentina we wanted to check out, I believe I checked out at least 3 companies via Google trying to find a company that could accommodate our itinerary with a reasonable budget. We almost went to another company, but I think your prompt replies in the inquiry phase really helped us lean your way.
It was nice to have you guys arrange all the interconnecting flights and hotels for us, and we felt like we were in good hands throughout the entire trip. The recommendation pamphlets you provided were helpful, and the tours were just amazing. We definitely appreciated the on-time pick ups and friendly service throughout the entire booking process and while we were in country everything went real smooth and we felt comfortable.
The hotel in Bariloche (Inacayal) might have been our favorite. It was a beautiful property, had super nice staff, beautiful room, nice pool/hot tub with a spectacular view and overall great location overlooking Nahel Haupi lake.
Kau Yatun in El Calafate was also nice!!! No TV but that was fine by us since we enjoyed the quite. It felt so remote and also had happy, friendly staff - they even offered bikes into town which was a nice surprise (only used them once though) and it had a peaceful stream nearby you could walk to and walking into town wasn't hard.
Man..we were just BLOWN away by the glacier tour..the guides were cool, and the glacier was just mesmerizing! Was so cool putting on the crampons and walking on that gigantic chunk of ice - one of the coolest places we have ever and probably will ever see...All excursions were worth it to us and we enjoyed each of them, but this one took the cake
Santi (Santiago) in Bariloche was just fantastic for our Nature & History tour. He spoke excellent English, was funny, and polite and just a wonderful guy! Rodrigo was also super nice and informative for our welcome and departure - he even checked up on us during the trip which was nice!
The only thing we can suggest is perhaps sending the itinerary descriptions in an easier format to read (during booking process) - not sure how you'd do that, but I think it would possibly help.
Also, perhaps give those traveling to the Patagonia region a heads up that they'll need to throw their toilet paper in the bin and not flush it as it was a little confusing when we first encountered that.
For Buenos Aires/Bariloche, maybe give people a heads up that they will probably have to insert their room key next to the light switch to activate electricity for the room. They will eventually ask the front desk and be advised, but when you first arrive and think your room lights don't work and need to use a dark bathroom in a hurry, it would be good to know ;)
Also would be good to know how much to tip guides. We had no idea what was appropriate, so any kind of advice for that would be very helpful. I think we read somewhere it should be a certain percent of the cost of the excursion, but since we're on a package and don't know all the costs, a general idea would definitely help.
Other than that, you guys are just awesome. So nice and helpful the whole way through. We were worried about booking a company we have never heard of before, but after reading a few reviews and confirming you were legit, it was an easy choice. Thank you over and over again for such a wonderful honeymoon and experience. We want to visit more areas of Argentina someday..so we'll be back (hopefully!!)”
