My name is Daiana, and I am part of the Say Hueque team. I have worked in the tourism industry for the past 7 years. After getting my degree in tourism, I started travelling to different countries all over the world. After two years abroad, I came back to Argentina, my home, with one goal: to help people who come to visit my country to appreciate its beauty and diversity of nature, culture and traditions.
I am looking forward to helping you design your trip.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in providing customized tours to independent travelers throughout Argentina and Chile´s national parks and cities. Popular destinations and experiences include Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Perito Moreno Glacier, hiking in Patagonia, wine tasting in Mendoza, horseback riding at traditional estancias, glacier cruises and much more."
How did you get involved in travel?
"To be honest, at the beginning I had no idea what it was about. I started to study at the university and when I had my first work experience, I realized that working in tourism requires a key attribute: vocation of service. It requires a lot of work to understand and interpret what type of travel a person dreams of in order to make it a reality. Maybe a person has spent days, weeks, or months imagining themselves standing there in front of the Iguazu Falls or the Perito Moreno Glacier, doing rafting in Mendoza, or learning about the culture of the northern Argentine people. Being able to fulfill that desire and having people come back happy from each trip is what inspires me to do this work."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I made many trips and each of them had something special, but I think one of the most memorable trips was my trip to New Zealand, where I lived for almost two years. There, I not only travel but work, and it was important because it meant a very important growth both personally and professionally. I work in many places, some related to tourism and others not, I met many beautiful places and people that I will never forget. It was my first trip alone, in which I really understood that you are actually never alone, and there is always a good opportunity to make friends!"

Recent trip reviews for Daiana
Very helpful! · Chile - Dec 8 - Dec 17, 2019
Everything was already fully detailed on the planning but getting on the sites itself, it got way more spectacular!
You also get the help you need and everywhere I stayed, the people were very helpful and nice and welcoming!
Even if you have the slightest misfortune (a delayed flight) they came to check on me and to adapt the planning accordingly.
All by all, it is something I will do again and i would recommend.
It helps you travel but does not forget to give you enough free time where necessary!
Short and very well organized trip · Chile - Nov 25 - Nov 28, 2019
Kimkim has been very helpful in organizing the trip while able to offer the best value for money service. Daiana has been very responsive also for small details. Huellas Del Desierto has been able to organize a short trip that was at the same time able to touch the most amazing areas in the time. The most beautiful one being the Altiplanos Lagunas.
Chile 2019 Trip · Chile - Jun 28 - Jul 8, 2019
It was a great pleasure working with Daiana. She replied to all my questions throughout the planning phase and helped me customize my trip. I will give her a wave on top of the 5 star rating.
1) Our private guides Alejandra, Frank, and Javier (driving us) to the Moon and Mars Valley and the Rainbow Valley were absolutely fantastic. They had the passion and experience to match that of ours. They took pleasure answering our questions or even look up the internet to do so.
2) The... read more

I liked that kimkim provides suggested itineraries. It helped me to decide what to do on my trip. It resulted in my choosing to start in Buenos Aires, going to Ushuaia and finishing up in Chile. This was my first time using kimkim, so I was unsure of the quality of the service I would be receiving but I was happy with how things turned out.
My reason for giving only four stars is that there was quite often a lag in communication. I would request something or ask a question, and... read more
Trip to Chile · Chile - Jan 30 - Feb 2, 2019
Thanks to Kimkim our W trek was amazing. Diana was fantastic in all sense. She responded promptly and made changes to our itinerary as required.
Only one suggestion, which is for fantastic sur, on day we could have stayed in Frances, day 3 Paine Grande which would have made things a bit better in terms of covering more.
We will definitely come back to Kimkim for our next Chilean and Argentina adventure

This was a complete mess.
We were given no details regarding the tours beforehand. Only what time they began.
The paperwork said someone would be in touch to confirm our pickup time, etc. We didn't hear from anyone. I had to make an international call at midnight the night before to find out when we should be ready. When I inquired about a drop-off time, she couldn't tell me.
Then, we hated our guide (about 99% sure she was hungover). She threw up the entire first half of the tour, told... read more
