Trip Report Great trip to Argentina - with the BEST travel agent ever!

Jump to last reply

We went to Argentina as a family group of four, and have just returned from a great trip (April 2010). We spent a couple of days at Iguazu Falls, a few days in Salta and a couple of days at El Calafate, all sandwiched between a few days at the start and end in Buenos Aires (Recoleta at the start and Palermo at the end). Amazing experience, all in all.

This was all organised for us by Isabel at Bueno Aires Tours (contact@buenosaires-tours.com.ar, website www.buenosaires-tours.com.ar). She charges a flat fee for her service, which includes providing lots of suggestions and advice, to help you choose an itinerary that suits you best, in terms of likes and dislikes, budget, length of trip, etc. She was always very quick to respond – as far as I could work out, she seems to work at all hours, seven days a week!! After we decided on an itinerary, she made sure it hung together and then booked everything for us, or put us in contact with trusted local guides. The accommodation she booked for us (some of which you won’t find on hotel booking websites) was all in good convenient locations.

Every single cent of the flat fee we paid her was worth it … and that’s even before we had the disruption caused by the volcano … at that point, she went into overdrive to make sure we were OK, making phonecalls on our behalf (given our lack of Spanish), finding us new accommodation at the last minute, etc. I cannot speak highly enough of Isabel – we had a superb trip to Argentina, and Isabel played a big part in making the trip a big success.
