What an experience - a 3 day trip in the Atacama desert. Big skies, glorious stars, geysers, deserts, valleys and mountains - all in great company and superbly organised. I was travelling solo and the guide and group made me feel hugely welcome.
We did not do the tour per se, but had a fully personalized 21 day tour of Argentina and Chile, that included Buenos Aires, Iguazu falls, Ushaia, El calafate, Torres del Paine, Bariloche, the Andes lake crossing to Chile, Puerto Varas, Santiago and the Atacama. All of this, flights , hotels, daily excursions, airports transfers were arranged by Lucia, at Say Hueque. Everything went so smoothly. It is so comforting at every destination to see your name on a sign. All the hotels were perfect for what we wanted. the pick ups were timely, the guides were excellent. We could not have been more satisfied.
I had the absolute pleasure of sharing our recent Atacama trip that you helped him plan. Patricio could not have put together a better trip plan for us!! The trip was amazing from the moment we arrived in Santiago to the sad departure we made 3 weeks later. I loved every part of the trip and each day I couldn’t believe that it could get better. And then it did!! Thank you for all the work you put into scheduling all our activities and for all the many questions you answered for us in our planning. I want to come back and explore more of your amazing and absolutely beautiful country!! Thank you again so much.
We found Say Hueque by accident in an internet search and liked the fact that we could shape our own trip and pick and choose. The booking process with Lujan was very easy. She was patient and flexible and very well organized. Our favorite destination was the Atacama Desert. The guides were excellent,. We will never forget how powerful and magnificent they are. We will be happy to recommend your company to others.
I booked a two week customised trip that took me through from Buenos Aires, El Calafate & Iguazu Falls in Argentina, Atacama desert in Chile & Uyuni salt flats in Boliva. The whole trip was planned out with the help of consultants at Say Hueque. They were excellent and very responsive to queries and changes that i had to make at the last minute. They used very good local guides who were always on time for pickups. The hotels everywhere except Bolivia were of a very high standard. They were very clear about the facilities in Bolivia being very basic but i booked it anyway. I'd definitely recommend them and would use them again if i return to South America.
