What people are saying about Argentina

Marta was great! We were the only English speakers on the bus and so she put us up front so when she finished the tour in Spanish she could explain what was going on in English, she was really helpful, informative and attentive. The tour itself was the beautiful, the bus was comfy enough and a good price for how far you travel! We sadly couldn’t do acongua mountain due to weather conditions but this is made clear when booking that this is a possibility. We enjoyed our day out and would definitely recommend.

We had a very special private trip with our guide Hernan. He made it very informative all the way to our destination with his passionate and friendly interaction. The experience at the wine farm was very interesting and the wine tasting great! The food at lunch was a real culinary journey and adds a lot of value to the tour ito substance. All the best with your project! Henk

The guide, Sam, does his job very well. Riding a bike with him in the city is pretty easy, and most importantly, super safe! He knows much about the city and he is extremely professional while being very friendly. This was the best thing to do for exploring Buenos Aires!

This was a wonderful experience. My driver was on time and got me from point A to B when I didn't know how to get there myself after airline placed me on 2 separate Sao Paulo airports

Sono molto soddisfatta, lo consiglierò ai miei amici che viaggeranno a Buenos Aires.
