There was a good balance of free time/group time.

Hi, Ceci, Hope you are well. Have a great week. I have inserted my answers below. We choose to travel with Say Hueque due to the Good reviews on Trip Advisor The booking process was Very smooth- Laura was fantastic accommodating my requests regarding adding activities/changing times Our favorite hotel was Kkala (very nice staff/setting/accomodations/desserts at night); in general, all the 3 chosen hotels were nice; although it would have been helpful to known beforehand that Kkala and La Aldea de La Selva were both far from the city center so that could plan for need to use taxi/Uber Seeing Iguazu was the most striking part of my visit; we had an excellent guide who was knowledgable, efficient, and very enthusiastic. enjoying the site with fellow travelers was spectacular. Ceci from Say Hueque was incredibly kind and knowledgeable - I appreciate her being flexible to change the walking tour to see what I wanted to see and loved her passion for food and teaching/sharing mate with me! Manuel of the Iguazu tour was the amazing guide for the other excursion. I was least impressed with the Full Day Salinas Gradnes through Purmamarca tour -first of all, the driver smoked, so even though he smoked outside of the car, the smell of smoke would waft into the car in between breaks -the guide did not have very smooth transitions between the English/Spanish transitions of her descriptions, making it hard for English-only speakers to understand things as fully as the Spanish or Spanish and English speaking passengers -there was a lot of driving/bumpy roads to reach the mining town/the Salinas, and the sights seemed a little underwhelming for the amount of time we spent on the road although there were some beautiful views/sights In Salta, I also signed up myself for the city tour of Salta which was literally a drive through the city with minimal opportunity to explore. The guide also seemed a bit jaded and did not have much enthusiasm for a tour guide. Overall, I had a lovely time seeing the country and meeting Argentinians and people from other parts of the world. There was a good balance of free time/group time. Thank you for helping make this a wonderful trip! Glena

The trip went very smoothly, everything was on time, the tours were all very professional and great quality

Hi Cecilia, YES, we loved the trip. It was wonderful. The journey home was very long but uneventful. It's always nice to be home but we have very fond memories of Argentina. It's a bit of a shock to be back to winter and the short days. To answer your questions Why Say Hueque. We normally travel independently and make our own bookings. Since this was our first time to Argentina, and also our first time to anywhere in South America we were unsure of what to expect. We had looked at some of the package tours and found they didn't really go to all the places we wanted to go to and also we didn't want to be in a "group" all the time. After some research and reading reviews using Say Hueque seemed like a good option and it worked out really well. It was the perfect balance of being able to do what we wanted but not having to deal with booking everything ourselves. The booking process. Lucia made the process very easy, we told her what we wanted, she made a few changes and suggestions to improve our plans and it was done very quickly. Everything went according to plan, even the internal flights were on time!!! It made for a very stress free vacation. The detailed daily itinerary is a great idea. All of the information was package was very well put together. Favorite Hotel All the accommodation was fine but the Peninsula Petit was our favorite. The location was spectacular, food was great and Pablo and Samanta were lovely and excellent hosts. We wish we could have stayed longer. Least Favorite The St George in Iguazu. The rooms were a little dated but the location was very convenient to some great restaurants and overall the hotel was fine. Our favorite excursion The kayak trip with Julian on Lake Mascardi was our favorite. We had perfect conditions and Julian was an excellent guide. The delicious lunch by the lake looking over at the glacier was a special moment. Guides All the guides and drivers were excellent. The wine & treats and introduction to Buenos Aires from you, Cecilia, were the perfect start to the vacation. Jeremias and Alberto gave us a great tour of the city the next day and it gave us a good idea of where to go when we returned to Buenos Aires at the end of our vacation. All the other tours were really good, the drivers and guides very knowledgeable, helpful and spoke very good English. The trip went very smoothly, everything was on time, the tours were all very professional and great quality. It was also nice to have you check in on us every so often and make sure we were ok. It was comforting to know that we had back up if something went wrong, which can happen to even the best plans. Luckily everything went well and this will be a vacation we will remember for a long time. We will certainly recommend Say Hueque and Argentina to our friends Thank you for everything. All the best Tom & Ann

We had a wonderful time and came back feeling that we had a very good picture of your amazing country

Hello Lujan, We got back 2 days ago from our trip to Argentina which you organised for us. I would just like to say a big thank you for your help; we had a wonderful time and came back feeling that we had a very good picture of your amazing country : the variety, the sheer vastness and the (mostly) happy attitude of the people towards life; I would also like to comment on the excellence of all the guides we had - Tina in BA, Chris (I think) in Tierra del Fuego, Celia in P Iguazú and Eduardo in Salta who drove us many hundreds of kilometres with great skill and patience. They were all very knowledgeable and good humoured and obviously enjoy their job. Perhaps you could pass on our thanks and appreciation to them. All the transfers were punctual and stress free and I thank you again for making our holiday such a pleasure.

We loved Argentina!

We loved Argentina! We choose you for the good recommendation on Trip Advisor and lack of time to do our own planning ;) The booking process was very easy and interactive. Regarding hotels, we loved: Melia Iguacu and Kau Yatun and we wound OK: Hosteria Puma and Ilum Experience. Our favorite excursion were BA walking tour and BA bike tour, they were both great! Both Iguacu days with Diego were nice but would say that Iguacu does not really require a guide as one goes with the crowds. Still useful for the trip to Brazil. Our Favourite memories were biking BA, hiking Laguna de Los Tres in nice weather and staying in the Melia with early morning visits to the falls and having cocktails with Falls view in the evening. If we need to mention a guide, Agostina from SayHueque and Martin from Biking BA were both really great We need to mention that we did not like the Southern Spirit Trek in El Calafate. Almost all the time was spent in transit on the bus and inside the boat or waiting. We had only 45 minutes at Perito Moreno which is a bit of a joke given the tour lasted for 9 hours. Also, we enjoyed La Ventura tango show but felt it was a bit too touristic, so we wondered if more authentic ways exist to experience tango (maybe not)

We all talked about how the whole trip exceeded our expectations.

Hi Ceci, I have answered the questions below. I think this is the sense of the whole group since we had some discussions about our experience. It was very difficult because our trip was wonderful and there were not any bad experiences. "From the beginning of the process to end of our trip, Say Hueque was wonderful to work with. They made the planning easy and the logistics of the trip were always perfect. I would highly recommend Say Hueque to anyone traveling Argentina" 1. Why did you choose to travel with Say Hueque? I was looking for a service that would help me create a trip without being part of a group. Say Hueque is perfect for the independent traveller. I found Say Hueque while searching the internet. I checked various sites for reviews and all were good. 2. How was the booking process with your Travel Advisor? Patricio was very easy to work with. He was able to discern the type of trip we were all looking for and he delivered completely. Even when Patricio was out of the office, our emails were answered by one of his associates. It seemed as though he could figure what sort of trip we were looking for without our ability to be very clear. He really came through. 4. Which was your favorite hotel and which was your least favorite? This is difficult since we were happy with all of the hotels. We really liked Senderos in El Chalten. It has a quaint feel with a fire in the lobby and a nice little restaurant with excellent food and service. The front desk staff at the hotel were exceptional. Ilum Home in BA was also very nice. The front desk staff there were also very good. Probably our least favorite was the Indigo in Puerto Natales. It is a pretty odd property in the way it is laid out and decorated. It was also difficult to eat in the restaurant. For example, they sell wine by the bottle, but there is no wine list to choose from. They were also the only property that charged our credit card at check in. As of now, I still have the pending charge on my credit card account. 5. What was your favorite excursion and why? Would you share with us your favorite memory from the trip? We didn't all agree on this one! The consensus top three were Estancia La Peninsula, Perito Moreno Glacier, and the landing at Cape Horn ( Australis Cruise). We all really enjoyed the cruise and if you count the cruise as one excursion, it was a our favorite. 6. Is there a guide (or guides) that you would like to specifically mention? Ceci in BA was wonderful. She is a great guide and very enthusiastic about it. I really liked her care of us and the fact that she checked in with us even after we left BA. It was like having a friend in country. Natalia with Perito Moreno Glacier tour was outstanding. Her knowledge was incredible and she was very personable. 7. Is there anything that did not fulfill your expectations? Please be specific Nope! We all talked about how the whole trip exceeded our expectations. Don Pierce

All the guides were good but Agostina, you are a star.All the guides were good but Agostina, you are a star

Agostina Hope all is well. Will try and remember to go on Trip Advisor. Think of you often you special one. We choose you because Responsible Travel in the U.K. found you for me. The booking process was very good. I don´t think we have a favourite excursion but the Iguazú Falls will I think be the most memorable. All the guides were good but Agostina, you are a star. You will be a greater star. Hope there’s a next time All the very best Andrew
