Gregg's review for another Beyond BA LATAM tour
“Patagonia was lovely and went off without a hitch. Thank you for all you planning and support.

Joe was great and we enjoyed our Buenos Aires tour very much. He is a wealth of knowledge and a great personality. The tango show was awesome too.

All of the guides were fantastic, but we especially liked our guide in Ushuaia. We loved our time in Ushuaia overall (helicopter ride, penguins, canoeing on the lake). Our guide was great and we could spend a week there to do more hiking in the national forest. The resort (los coquenes) was also fantastic -- best of the trip and would recommend to anyone.

Thank you again for a trip of a lifetime.”

Gary's review for another Beyond BA LATAM tour
“Everything went very well. It was perfect, people were great, on time, we all enjoyed the tours the Hotel in El Calafate was good the only minor issue was the Hotel in El Chalten wasnt quite as appealing / friendly as the others we stayed in although only a very minor issue.

Loved your country and thanks to you and the people it was worry free for us.

Pity we didnt meet you but maybe next time or if you are ever in Australia.”

Ise,'s review for another Beyond BA LATAM tour
“I hope you had a good holiday and we wish you a healthy and happy new year. First off, my apologies for not advising you that i received your package pre-departure. I had been watching for it and was so excited when it arrived, i completely forgot to connect. Nonetheless, the trip you planned for us was absolutely amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. Flights, transfers, hotels and toursall were well organized, thoughtful choices. We also benefited from your recommendations in BA for restaurants etc. Jose Luis was perfect to give us our bearings on our first day and with such wonderful insights and stories. We are savouring our fond memories and are discussing when we will return to wonderful Argentina and where we will go next. I cant thank you enough. One regret was not meeting up with you, perhaps next visit! Keep in touch.”
