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

Buenos Aires and El Calafate were excellent however Uruguay was an incredible surprise and somewhere we would like to return to in the future. It was a really relaxing last few days to our holiday.

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

Uruguay is definitely worth a visit.

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

Yes, all local agents were local people who had a great knowledge of the places and were always very friendly and welcoming. Also the strong emphasis on environmental conservation and abiding by local laws/rules whilst in the Glacier National Park was good.

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

Excellent; the holiday was everything that we could have hoped for on our honeymoon and were are pleased that we did something different than we usually would. The tour company were excellent before and during the holiday along with the local agents.

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

Go! You will love it! Food in Uruguay is a bit pricey, although delicious. Wine is inexpensive. They do not know from vegetables, but always fugazetta (onion pizza) available. There is not much to do at Narbona Winery but we enjoyed unplugging - it is beautiful. There are lots activities listed on their web site but none of these were offered to us, not even a wine tasting! If you are in Buenos Aires on a Monday night go to Bomba del Tiempo!

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

Yes!

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

Excellent!
