“We absolutely loved our tour through Buenos Aires, El Calafate, and Bariloche wit the help of Say Hueque. The tour guides and excursions were amazing. I can't wait to book another trip with this company for other parts of Argentina.”

“Hello Federico,

I hope you are all well in Buenos Aires. For us, it's back to the cold, and to work of course. We would really have liked to stay longer...

As far as hotels are concerned, we thought they all had their special charm.
If I had to name a favourite, it would be the hotel Killa, in Cafayate. The staff was splendid and very helpful (the manageress gave us a lot of advice about rte 40. The same is valid for the El Cortijo stall, in Cachi).
The view from the terrasse of hotel Iruja, overseeing the village and valley, was unique.
El Antiguo Convento, in Salta, had a special "old Spain" atmosphere.

One of the highlights of the trip was the drive up the Abra del Acay, something we would never have done had you not sent us there !
Some people here think we were crazy to do it ("can you imagine, a breakdown of the car in that remote area" Well, says I, no risk, no fun Ha Ha). We thought it was very exciting, but I have to say that with any kind of water (rain), a 4X4 would be required. Route 9, from San Salvador de Jujuy to Salta was also a jungle beauty!

All in all, a fantastic experience that made us appreciate Argentina, and make us want to come back.
Thank you for that.”

“Hola Patty,
Thanks so much for your email and again thanks for coming and picking us up in San Antonio de Areco...above and beyond and appreciated! Our flight back went smoothly and it was good to be back home after 30 days on the road.
We just finished an album of our Patagonia trip and Paul has been telling everyone of our experiences. All in all it was a great trip filled with some good memories...
To answer some of your question...
Favorite hotel...Lirolay Suites in Bariloche
Los Sauces in El Calafate

Excursion has to be with Federico Kawen Adventures, kayak trip to Lago Mascardi

Best of traveling with Say Hueque: Timely transfers, and knowledgeable guides like yourself!

Improvements: Better communication, reply promptly to emails.
Make sure that independent travelers do not get put in an excursion package that is overcrowded and impersonal...otherwise we would have chosen a tour group instead of traveling on our own. The Christiana Upsala Glacier tour was an example of being overcrowded.

Thanks Patty for your recipe and keep in touch.”
