Our trip was superb, and Marcelo and Andrea from Argentina Adventure helped us put together a trip that was delightful, memorable, challenging and relaxing all at the same time– it was exactly what we hoped for, and then it beat our expectations! They arranged the different aspects and logistics for our visit to Argentina, which included Buenos Aires, Calafate/Patagonia, Mendoza and Iguazu Falls and the arrangements were so seamless that we felt that we got to enjoy each of the varied areas, stay active, and have plenty of time to also savor each moment. The transfers were seamless and there was no detail overlooked. Marcelo helped us with the planning and then Andrea watched over us while we were in Argentina – she was warm, attentive and made us feel like family.

My husband, my daughter and I enjoyed each of the different regions, but the boat ride and hiking in Patagonia, the lunch and wine tasting at Ruca Malen and the boat ride under the Falls were three particularly fabulous experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed each of the lodges Marcelo recommended to us, and especially enjoyed our time at Finca Adalgisa, a small winery in the Mendoza area- we enjoyed visiting with the owner who was delightful and the rooms and setting were just enchanting.
The lodges in Calafate and in the jungle near Iguazu Falls were also in beautiful settings, and our stays in each of those spots were also quite memorable- we felt that each of the three areas we visited outside of Buenos Aires alone would have made a wonderful experience, but all three together created a trip of a lifetime!

While we had a general idea of what we wanted to see, we never would have been able to arrange each of the varied activities (which also included white water rafting and horseback riding at a spectacular setting in Patagonia) without Marcelo’s guidance and suggestions- he was really able to understand what we wanted from our vacation and hit the target 100%! We also really appreciated having a cell phone provided to us when we landed, as our daughter was living in Buenos Aires, and it also let us stay in touch with her while we stayed in Buenos Aires before we traveled to other parts of Argentina with her, and to have the ability to also be in touch with Andrea – it was a perfect additional touch!
