Reviews for Tailor made holiday in Argentina, best of Argentina
Lynley Wicks review 3 Apr 2018
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?The diversity of the landscapes and climates and awe inspiring scenery. It was nice to have a local guide in each area.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?We extended the trip to have 3 nights in each location (so 17 days in total). This was a great pace as with all the travelling I think it would be exhausting and overwhelming if we had stuck to the original schedule. Check the flight times carefully to ensure you have time to complete the tours before the flight. We did not book tours for the days we travelled so did not have to worry about flight delays (although Aerolineas Argentinas were always on time). You will need to learn to pack light (only 15kg check in allowed). We had temperatures from a very humid 38C in Iguazu to 2C (with snow) in Ushuaia. Be prepared for anything and open to the fact the weather can't be predicted!
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?It was a shame to see the amount of plastic used in the cafes at the national parks. Water from the tap is drinkable so we could refill our own bottles. The hotels had signs for how to reduce water usage eg not having the towels changed every day. The tour companies and guides were local so the cost of trips and tips we gave would hopefully (indirectly) benefit the community.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?This is an awesome holiday. Very well organised. Nice mix of being with a guide and time to ourselves. We thought Agustin from the operator we used was so good we asked him to arrange some extra days for at short notice which he accommodated easily.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
