Hi Nick ,
the trip now seems a while away!! From mine and Charlie’s perspective it was a truly memorable holiday with so many highlights .
The way we arranged the holiday ,with your help really made it flow well and nothing seemed too onerous even though we had to spend a long time in airports!! - but we knew that was the only way we could get to see what we did in the time we had given the size of the country. A real positive was we arrived back with all our luggage intact ! - amazing given we had done 10 flights in the 18 days!
What a remarkable country it is - such varied landscapes , environments and cultures .It was hard to believe we managed to fit in a city break , horse riding and glacier visiting in Patagonia , wine tasting in Mendoza , more horse riding and birdwatching in the Pampas and finally the wonderful experience of the Iguassu Falls and the associated birdlife - all truly amazing .
The standard of the accommodation was excellent and we stopped in some quirky but remarkable places .I have done a short commentary on them all which I hope you will find helpful . Flights with KLM were good as were internal flights .We only had one delay of 1.5 hours on our journey out to Mendoza ( which we could have done without as that was a later flight anyway).
The transfer companies and guides were good .We did pushback on their pick up times as we were taken to the airports far too early on occasions and it felt that we were being fitted into their schedules rather than suiting our own. The wine tour was excellent and the tasting menu at Clos de Chagres was memorable - the food was superb and the wines complimented beautifully . Hotels ; Park Hyatt - BA Good location ,spacious rooms , ( we had room 703) , english spoken ,tea and coffee making facilities in rooms. Breakfast was very good - lots of choice .Food and wines overall were very good.
Overall it was one of the most memorable holidays we have had and we have all said we want to go back and see more of the country - it is such a fascinating place to visit .
Thank you for all your help , guidance and insights!
We have recommended your company to others who have now got the Argentinian ‘bug!”
Many thanks Clare
