“We've just returned from our trip to Argentina and we would like to thank you greatly for the services performed: from the first contact till the check out of the last service we have always been treated with great courtesy, efficiency, availability.

It is really important for us to spend some special words to thank Santiago Tur, we've to say that without the help of Santiago our great travel manager, this trip would have been incomplete.
Santiago has done everything possible to respond to our non-trivial needs, providing customized services, above our expectations. From early email exchanges he showed extraordinary efficiency, readiness on a huge amount of requests and continuous positive mood in trying to rework the trip according to our needs.
Santiago has been really patient and helpful not only during the preparation of the travel but even once we were in Argentina, he helped us to be in touch with the local agencies, and also replying to our doubts and questions during the weekend and the night

All agencies that have accompanied us on trips have shown equal efficiency, punctuality, availability. No delay, no deviation from what was planned. Indeed, in the face of little variations under our responsibility, we received support not budgeted.

If our trip was so beautiful it is definitely also thank to those who helped us to design it and make it happen.

Everything was perfect and perfectly-arranged. We will recommend your agency to anyone who needs to plan a trip in Argentina.”

“The trekking was very picturesque and the mix of cultural/local experiences was great.

Our guide Leondro (Leo)was a genuinely nice person , very caring and well organised and prompt.

Our bus was clean and Jos our driver took pride in it and was lovely to us all even though he did not speak English (this was not a problem with Leo to interpret)

Accomodation for Marion and I was good in all areas. Thanks for your recommendations and getting back to us promptly when we needed more information, overall a great trip. Thank you !”

“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.”
