Mery did a superb job of putting together an amazing trip on very short notice. The guides were almost all very excellent. The drivers were prompt and willingly waited when we were delayed. The level of service provided for al aspects of thsi trip was excellent.
We were to meet the driver for this tour at a specific time in front of our hotel. We were there early. A van arrived and we asked the driver if this was the city tour. He said that it was the city tour so we boarded the van along with six other people. No one asked us our names but the same circumstance had occurred the previous night. Unfortunately we were on the wrong van and so missed the city tour.
Very athletic dancing. The show was a great introduction to Argentina.
The meal preparation and dining experience was great. The staff who coordinated the event were very good. We were told to arrive no later than 7:00 pm so we made sure to arrive 5 minutes early. We were not told that the cocktail teaching experience required us to be there by 6:15 pm so we missed out on that part.
The horseback riding was not very exciting as the horses moved slowly along a predetermined path in an open field. The barbecue and the wine were both excellent and made the day a pleasurable experience.
Astounding views of the falls. The guide did a wonderful job of showing us around and explaining everything.
The Argentinian side of the falls was amazing. The Brazilian side of the falls was ten times as wonderful. I tell everyone that they must put this natural wonder of the world on their bucket list. Our guide was very conscious of the fact that we were arriving on a Brazilian holiday and that the falls would be crowded by the afternoon so he wisely switched the order of our day's itinerary so that we had an even better experience.
An memorable park that allowed close observation of the various birds and other animals.
The guide did not seem interested in showing us the highlights of the city. My impression was that she was doing the minimum to get through what she had to do and no more.
A fun day rafting and trekking in the Andes. The trekking included rappelling which could be a lot of fun. However, the guides had trouble explaining the steps. When I observed from the bottom as others were beginning their descent it was clear that the instructor missed explaining a fundamental point that would have made it easier for everyone. The rafting was fun. A better explanation of what was required of us and what would be provided wold have been helpful. For instance, we did not know if wet suits were provided or what footwear we needed etc.
The sights while hiking in the Andes were great. The hike was not too long or to difficult.
A half day at the spa would be sufficient. Sitting in pools of water at various temperatures loses its appeal after a few hours. The spa could add additional services such as massages, facials, manicures and pedicures to make a full day.
A good day seeing an historical city.
Very informative trip to the one winery. The second winery was a fascinating place but the guide spoke very little English so it was difficult to benefit from the tour.
A great experience. We did not expect to be treated to two picnics in the desert along with visiting the National Flamingo Park as well as the Red Rocks with their lagoons. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
An amazing place. The hot springs and geysers are a highlight of the trip.
A hike in the desert hills with stunning views al around. Wonderful.
