Reviews for Patagonia tailor made holiday, 14 days


review 25 Apr 2019

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

Lots of memorable parts. We loved Iguazu, Purmamarca, The Atacama and Valparaiso. We enjoyed everything really apart from the Patios de Cafayate hotel where my husband picked up food poisoning so we were unable to explore Cafayate, he was too ill.

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

The itinerary worked well for us. The self drive part from Salta to Purmamarca via Cafayate was great but take a map. The pre programmed sat nav was correctly programmed but the routes chosen were not as good as the ones we worked out for ourselves with the map and the guide in Salta.

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

Not really. We were disappointed that we were given bottled water everywhere and not offered boiled/purified water to re fill our own water bottles. I guess local people benefited because we only stayed in small, local places

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

Excellent. Everything we did was varied and interesting

Read the operator's response here:

We are pleased you had a wonderful trip and found the itinerary varied and interesting. However, I was sorry to hear you were ill and we will investigate this with the Patios de Cafayate Hotel. Similarly, thank you for your comments on the provision of bottled water. We are continually working with our local operators to endeavour to reduce single use plastic and our pledge to do so is regularly communicated with our ground suppliers. Indeed, we have an ST steering group which is currently focussing on reduction of plastic bottles and are behind our ‘water to go’ project. I know part of this involves trying to impress upon service providers simple measures they should take and your comments on this will be followed up. Thank you again and we are pleased you had a memorable holiday.
