1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


So many highlights: tango in Buenos Aires, the unforgettable Iguazu Falls; but for me Patagonia and particularly the Perito Merino glacier was the outstanding memory of the trip. Nature in raw, exquisite and awe-inspiring beauty: simply
stunning.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


You do need to pack for different weather conditions but even so do try to pack lightly so you still have space for all the things you will want to buy whilst you are there.

Do consider also going to other parts of Argentina to also take in the less-touristy areas.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, these locations are prime visitor sites so clearly they are quite commercial. Even so we were able to meet local people and support local artisans.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Fantastic - this was a great trip. We added this week to Buenos Aires, Iguazu and El Calafate on to an independent trip covering the northwestern areas around Salta, Cafayate etc. Although Argentina is a huge and varied country, we felt we saw a great deal of different environments, stunning scenery and met some wonderful people.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We understand the importance of travel more than ever with a responsible state of mind. In our experience, locally run companies are the most reliable when comes to protecting natural attractions. Simple because it is their source of income too.

How does this trip help to protect the environment?

- In Iguazú Falls our local guides always encourage travelers not to feed native animals like coaties which abound in Iguazú National Park. This becomes an issue since people start feeding coaties and changing their natural diet which impacts the jungle food chain. Also, we advise you to choose the eco train inside the park to avoid other fuel-based transportation which may disturb wildlife.
- In the Iguazú Falls Brazilian side of the park, we discourage helicopter tours. These tours became common, but they generate audit contamination.
- During your trip to Iguazú, you can stay in some of our eco-friendly resorts, like Awasi which offers a “sleep in the jungle” authentic. experience. We choose Awasi because their villas were built on stilts and with a responsible purpose, thus, minimizing the environmental impact in the jungle.

People

As an Argentine-owned travel business, we understand the importance of supporting our local partners during both the good times and the bad times. By partnering with locally owned hotels, activity providers, guides, restaurants, and properties over the years, we not only ensure a high level of quality and that our client's needs are satisfied, but we also develop long-term relationships with local business owners and help them plan and prepare for the busy and slow times of the year. And this also helps our clients to better experience the local culture.

How does this trip help to develop local economies?

- Tango is an important cultural attraction in Argentina because it was declared a cultural heritage by UNESCO. We offer two options to enjoy tango in Buenos Aires: the “stage” tango held in fancy but traditional places of the city, but also teamed up with little tango halls (like La viruta or Salón Canning) where locals go to enjoy tango dancing floors and orchestras.
- Glaciers are the main attractions in El Calafate in Patagonia Argentina, but we also offer immersive experiences to learn about the “gaucho” culture. You can visit traditional estancias (ranches), like Nibepo Aike which started as a family-run business at the beginning of the XX Century.
- In Iguazú, on your free day, we recommend always exploring the city and visiting the craft market of the Hito tres Fronteras, a popular viewpoint from where you can see the Paraná Rivera dividing the land into three countries: Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay.
- We hire local Argentine guides from Iguazú to ensure that our clients will have the best local leaders available. We team up with the Cooperativa Guías del Iguazú (Iguazú Guides Cooperative) to boost the work for the certified guides in the region. Our team leader in Iguazú is Adrián, one of the best and most enthusiastic guides you can find in Iguazú.
