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!"

Desert, Chile - Nov 24 - Nov 26, 2018
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
