Reviews for Argentina tailor made holiday, 13 days


review 9 Dec 2019

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

Walking on our own in the Ushuaia national park

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Try to go on tours on your own rather than the organised ones. I don't know the flight schedules but it was a shame that almost always when we flew we were unable to do anything else. The exception was El Calafate where we were able to spend the afternoon in the excellent bird reserve - which our tour organiser hadn't mentioned to us.

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

It is a large country and we took a lot of flights - which makes us feel bad. Previous holidays have encouraged re-usable water bottles (which we took) which could have been a good idea. Several local people were involved in the services we used, and the parks on the whole keep people away from the environment but let you see things. The walk to Esmeralda Lake is clearly damaging the peat bog, which is irreplaceable.

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

Argentina was wonderful. The individual tours were well-run but didn't feel hotels or tours were really tailored to our requests, it just felt like a standard tour. The pickups worked smoothly (although we were almost too late to check in at El Calafate after waiting for a passenger for a long time, but the airport seemed used to pulling people out of the queue!). Hotel Kenton on last night (Saturday) does not do room service on Saturdays, would have liked to have room service.
