Visit El Chalten, the famed Argentine capital of trekking, located at the foot of Fitz Roy Mountain and surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers and forests. Enjoy a full-day excursion of Torres del Paine National Park, located amidst soaring cliffs, blue icebergs and golden pampas rich in wildlife.
Explore the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the major tourist attractions of the region and one of the few glaciers in the world that is advancing even as most glaciers in the world are shrinking in size. Named after the explorer Francisco Moreno, the glacier is fed by the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, which is part of the Andes system.
Cross the Strait of Magellan and keep driving south until you finally reach Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Savour the natural beauty of Patagonia like never before in this 16-day tour.
I identified Say Hueque from an internet search for Patagonia Tours. I then read some of the positive ratings from other travelers. I decided to book through Say Hueque because of a) positive reviews from other travellers; b) the itinerary that you offered suited what I wanted; and c) I liked the idea of being reasonably independent and not having too much organised or being part of a week long tour.
There were probably a number of highlights. In terms of the actual arrangements, the ease of having most of my travel and hotel bookings completed without having to concern myself with them was a highlight. In terms of the actual trip, I really enjoyed the hiking at El Chalten and the one day that I hiked to Mt Fitz Roy was the highlight for me.
The hotel in El Calafate (Kau Yatun) was the best one of the trip. Very comfortable, good service, good restaurant and nice location.
As mentioned above, it was not an excursion, but the hiking in El Chalten was my favourite. However, at El Calafate, I booked an additional excursion to Estancia Christina on my one free day, and that excursion was great.The guides were all good. I think the guide from El Calafate who did the Perito Moreno glacier tour - I think her name was Danielle - was great, very friendly, helpful and professional.”
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).”
Thank you for the email. I have already reviewed Say Hueque on trip advisor on the general site, will add comments to the forum too.
I first learned about Say Hueque from the Internet - reviews and trip advisor.
I decided to travel with you because of your promptness in response, ease of working, good customer service and a good price. Seamless experience - everything was flawless and we did not have to worry.
My favorite hotel is Don Los Cerros at El Chalten - very nice hotel, luxurious, superb location and views, spa - hot tub, good service.
The best excursion was to Laguna De los tres - amazing trek up - difficult but exhilarating - worth the effort once we reached the top.
The trip was fabulous!”
