travel agent for flights within Argentina

does anyone have any recommendations for a travel agent for flights within Argentina?

in particular, we plan to do the following itinerary:

BA->Iguazu
2 days in Iguazu
Iguazu -> El Calafate (via BA)
5-6 days in region
El Calafate -> BA

any ideas how much this might cost?

Although we haven't traveled yet, we've made our flight arrangements with Isablel at Buenos Aries Tours.
Her email is [email protected]

She came highly recommended and I've been very pleased.
I can't help much with costs, except to say we are paying about $250 return from Buenos Aires to Iguazu.

I was extremely happy with the service I received from Cintia Stella at WOW! Argentina. My inbound flight from the USA was delayed and she rescheduled my connector to Bariloche before I ever landed. She is most professional. She charged me a non refundable fee of $100 to do all my hotel and air arrangements. It was worth every penny to me.
Enjoy your trip, Argentina is a spectacular destination.

I have used Edson Alessi at www.fredson.com for both Brazil and Argentina. He is great to work with and has gotten us good prices on flights as well as hotels and tours. Tell him Jenni sent you !

I, too, used WOW! Argentina and was very pleased with the professionalism of Cintia Stella < [email protected]> and staff.
She can make your plane reservations, hotel reservations and much more. I would gladly use them again.

wow, thanks for all the responses. i have contacted many of the agents listed.

arriving international into buenos aires, how much time is needed to clear customs, retrieve baggage, and transfer to domestic airport to connect to another flight? (e.g. we land in BA at 10:20a, what time do you think we could catch a flight to Iguazu?)

I would say 3 hours between the arriving and departing times of the flights, but we don't advise doing that. Too many things could go wrong.

I suggest one or two nights in BA between an international and a local flight.

Have a great time in our country.
