(Austin, Texas, United States)

"Fred has arranged my trip in such a way that gave me the gift of peace of mind, which you need while on vacation, especially when travelling alone."

"Everything was very personal, worry free and very touching."

"I have never experienced a trip like this; it's beyond what words can describe. I have to give Fred the very highest accolades for his incredible planning and attention to detail.
It was a trip of lifetime."

Geeta visited: Buenos Aires, Peninsula Valdes, Ushuaia, El Calafate, Bariloche and Iguazu Falls.
This was her first trip to South America.

TRIP REVIEW OF GEETA REDDY

This was my first trip to South America. Also, first trip to Argentina. Argentina, especially Patagonia, was on my list for quite some time.

I visited Buenos Aires, the Peninsula Valdes region, Ushuaia, El Calafate, Bariloche, and the Famous Iguazu Falls; and I attended the favourite Tango Dance with dinner. The trip was planned with my friend and her daughter, but due to health reasons, both of them could not make it. But from the beginning the tour was very well organized by Fred, and was flawless. I have never experienced a trip like this; it’s beyond what words can describe.

I have some ailments, like severe back pain (my spine is fused) and severe arthritis of knees. I have explained these problems to Fred before my trip. But Fred has arranged my trip in such a way that gave me the gift of peace of mind, which you need while on vacation, especially when travelling alone. Everything was very personal, worry-free, and very touching.

All the tour guides were knowledgeable, excellent, thorough, personal, and all of them made me feel comfortable. In Ushuaia I really had fun with young fellows who made me feel young, cannot forget those sweet memories. All the hotels, accommodations were excellent. Some of them very commendable, with their excellent service.

I have to give Fred the very highest accolades for his incredible planning and attention to detail. It was a trip of lifetime. His travel booklet - very commendable. I used to read it again and again, very helpful.

Thanks again Fred for making my trip so wonderful, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

GEETA'S BOOKED TRIP ITINERARY

Buenos Aires

DAY 1: YOU ARRIVE IN BUENOS AIRES

(staying for 1 night, with 1 tour included)

Flight arrival in Buenos Aires, Argentina!

Welcome at the airport and transfer with private vehicle and guide to your hotel.

A Step back in Time to Uruguay’s Colonia del Sacramento

You’re invited to step back in time and experience the historic city of Colonia del Sacramento, in Uruguay. A regular ferry takes over 3 hours to reach Colonia, but with your business class seat on our fast ferry, you’ll be there in just 1 hour and 15 minutes, giving you much more time to explore this beautiful slice of cobblestoned history.

Colonia del Sacramento was founded in 1680 by the Portuguese and is renowned for its old cobblestone streets and colorful houses, reminiscent of old Lisbon. It is one of the oldest cities in Uruguay, and its entire historic quarter has been designated Mankind’s Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

This tour is self-guided, except for the 1-hour group tour in Colonia’s historic district. The boat company coordinator will receive you in Colonia and coordinate your group tour, lunch and the ticket for the hop-on/hop-off bus for your transfer to town and leisure time in the city.

DAY 2: LAST DAY IN BUENOS AIRES

Transfer in private vehicle to Buenos Aires Airport.

Peninsula Valdes

DAY 2: YOU ARRIVE IN PENINSULA VALDES

(staying for 3 nights, with 5 tours included)

Flight arrival and transfer in group vehicle to your hotel.

Depending on your arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask your tour guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 3: PENINSULA VALDES

Peninsula Valdes’ Unique Marine Fauna Heaven

Peninsula Valdes is one of the largest marine wildlife reserves in the entire world, and a prime spot for viewing a diverse collection of wildlife. It was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its global significance as a marine wildlife refuge for several threatened species.

The scenic Peninsula Valdes, where arid landscapes contrast with the blue crystalline sea, is home to an important breeding population of the endangered southern Right Whale (whale season takes place from June to early December), southern sea lions, orcas (also known as “killer whales”), Magellanic penguins (penguin season is from mid-September to early April), as well as the largest continental colony of southern elephant seals in the entire world. National Geographic listed the Peninsula Valdes as one of the 10 best places in the world for whale-watching.

The inner part of the peninsula boasts rheas, guanacos (American Llama), hairy armadillos, ostriches and maras (very similar to hares). A high diversity and range of birds live in the peninsula as well; at least 181 species.

This is a full-day group tour.

An up-close encounter with the giant Southern Right Whale

Learn why National Geographic lists Peninsula Valdes as one of the 10 best places in the world for whale-watching. We’ll embark on a whale-watching adventure to get up-close and personal with one of the largest mammals on Earth: the Southern Right Whale!

One of the world’s rarest species of whale, the Southern Right Whale got its name because of the nature of its personality: easy to approach, friendly, and yielding large volumes of oil; making it therefore the “right” whale to hunt!

These whales are one of the more interactive whale species as they are usually on the water’s surface, which makes for a great viewing experience. They are very safe to approach and are often curious about boats passing by. They are playful and can be seen exhibiting unique behavior such as “sailing”, where they use their elevated tails to catch the wind; “lobtailing”, slapping it on the water; “headstanding,” where they rise in a vertical position with their head high above the air; and the most exciting, “breaching” where the whale jumps out of the water spinning, and landing with a huge splash!

We will spend approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes navigating before returning to the port.

This is a group tour done on the same day as the Peninsula Valdes tour.

DAY 4: PENINSULA VALDES

An Up-Close & Personal Experience Walking among the Cute Magellanic Penguins

Get ready for a delightful encounter with some of the cutest and most charismatic creatures on the planet: the Magellanic penguins! Punta Tombo Reserve is home to the world’s largest colony of Magellanic penguins, giving you the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with over a hundred thousand of these adorable creatures, which are only found on the Falkland Islands and the coasts of Argentina and Chile.

This is a long half-day group tour (the visit to the Punta Tombo Magellanic Penguins reserve lasts 2 hours), but it’s usually combined with at least 1 other tour option in the area making it a full-day tour.

All about the Largest Dinosaurs that Ever Lived: Patagonian Paleontology Museum

Millions of years ago, Patagonia was a subtropical rain forest filled with dinosaurs, including one of the largest creatures ever to walk the Earth: “Given the size of these bones, which surpass any of the previously known giant animals, the new dinosaur is the largest animal known that walked on Earth,” reported the BBC about a new species of titanosaur, unearthed in Argentina. This dinosaur was about 65 feet (20 meters) high – equal to a seven-story building - and would have weighed 77 tons (equivalent to approximately 14 elephants).

The Patagonian soil was also where the fossils of the largest carnivorous dinosaur in the world were found, surpassing the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex in size.

We’ll visit the Egidio Feruglio Museum, one of the most important scientific institutions in Argentina, and an undisputed international reference in paleontology.

This tour is done on the same day you do your Punta Tombo’s Magellanic Penguins tour.

An Exquisite Welsh Tradition: Tea Time at Gaiman Village

This quaint and charming town appears to have been arrested in time: streets with irrigation ditches watering trees not native to Patagonia, and buildings brought in from faraway lands - such as chapels constructed by the Welsh upon arriving to Patagonia in the 19th century. Added to this seemingly age-old land, there are customs that have been brought into it from afar: such as the traditional Welsh tea, prepared according to ancient customs that give it a unique flavor and perfume; all accompanied by delicious cake.

One of Gaiman’s most prominent visitors came to this region of Patagonia in 1995: Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, was there to enjoy a leisurely 5 o’clock tea.

This is a group tour done on the same day you do your Punta Tombo’s Magellanic Penguins tour.

DAY 5: LAST DAY IN PENINSULA VALDES

Transfer in group vehicle to the airport.

Ushuaia

DAY 5: YOU ARRIVE IN USHUAIA

(staying for 3 nights, with 2 tours included)

Flight arrival in Ushuaia. Welcome at airport and private transfer to your hotel.

Depending on your arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask your tour guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 6: USHUAIA

A Trekking and Canoeing Adventure at the Ends of the Earth

Prepare for a journey to the Ends of the Earth, as we embark on an unforgettable tour to Tierra del Fuego National Park, located in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! With 63,000 hectares of land this National Park is larger than the city of Chicago! You’ll encounter some of the most pristine and beautiful scenery nature has to offer, while experiencing the uniquely remote feeling of truly being at the ends of the Earth.

Our expert guide will help you discover the hidden wonders of the Tierra del Fuego National Park, including its enchanting lakes, forests, lush vegetation, and wildlife as you surround yourself in the peaceful serenity of nature.
We’ll trek the coastal path (one of the most beautiful areas in the entire National Park) and then embark on a canoeing expedition downriver and across clear water streams while experiencing the calming breeze and breathtaking landscapes. Our canoeing journey concludes when we get to Lapataia Bay, where Argentina’s National Route #3 ends. This road is the last (and southernmost) stretch of the Pan-American Highway, which runs all the way to Alaska.

This is a full-day group tour and includes lunch with non-alcoholic beverages & wine.

DAY 7: USHUAIA

Along the Shore, across the Forest and into the Mud: a 4x4 Off-Road Adventure at the Ends of the Earth!

Prepare for a thrilling and scenic 4x4 off-road experience, where natural beauty and our guide’s amazing driving skills will nourish your spirit for adventure, while enjoying the best 4x4 tour done at the Ends of the Earth!

On this one-of-a-kind 4x4 tour, we’ll discover the hidden secrets of the Southern Andes, one of the world’s largest mountain ranges. We’ll take in awe-inspiring scenic views of "Lago Escondido" (Hidden Lake), and then literally immerse our vehicle into the shores Fagnano Lake. As our expert guide drives through the splashing waters on the lake’s shore, we’ll marvel at the views and experience an absolutely memorable adventure. This off-road experience through deep forests and across rivers, while defying muddy tracks along the shore of the lake, will end with one of the most savory and customary meals in Argentine cuisine: an Argentine asado (meat barbeque), which we’ll accompany with Patagonian wines.

This is a full-day group tour and includes lunch with non-alcoholic beverages & wine.

DAY 8: LAST DAY IN USHUAIA

Transfer in private vehicle to Ushuaia airport.

El Calafate

DAY 8: YOU ARRIVE IN EL CALAFATE

(staying for 3 nights, with 3 tours included)

Flight arrival in El Calafate. Welcome at airport and private transfer to your hotel.

Depending on your arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask your tour guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 9: EL CALAFATE

Seven Panoramic Boardwalks of the Mighty Perito Moreno Glacier

Prepare to visit one of the world’s most awe-inspiring and unique glaciers: The Perito Moreno. This bright white ice giant showcases its mighty glory in the Patagonian Glaciers National Park, which has been declared Mankind’s Natural Heritage site by UNESCO. The park’s vast size not only gives it the distinction of being the largest ice mantle in the world, after Antarctica, but also the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet.

The Perito Moreno is of the few glaciers in the world actually growing and advancing, as opposed to the majority of the world’s glaciers, which are retreating and melting due to the effects of global warming. The ice that serenely sits above the water measures an impressive 262 feet (80 meters), which is just about the height of a 25-story building! And while that’s an incredibly large size for the human eye to take in, consider that this measurement is only 15% of the glacier’s total height. Five times more ice is hidden underwater.

Our destination is the panoramic boardwalks which overlook the Perito Moreno Glacier. Here, amidst the backdrop of the majestic, snow-capped Andes, you’ll find yourself immersed in an unforgettable glacier experience, while enjoy amazing picture-taking opportunities from the seven panoramic balconies facing the front of the glacier.

While the glacier itself is definitely the main attraction, the park also boasts remarkable scenery as well as glacial streams, small lagoons, crevasses, gullies, and plenty of ice formations that’ll dazzle the eye, surrounded by the scenic beauty of the Andes Mountain range, lakes and forest areas.

This is a full-day group tour.

The Mighty Perito Moreno Glacier Close-up Navigation Experience

Take in the sheer size and beauty of the Perito Moreno Glacier as it towers before you, from an exciting close-up perspective, as we cruise across the pristine waters of the Rico Branch of the Argentino Lake, which borders the Southern wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier.

The sheer magnitude of the southern wall alone is a humbling and inspiring sight. We’ll be stopping about 985 feet (300 meters) away from the southern wall of the glacier for some epic picture-taking opportunities that will showcase the grand scale and beauty of the glacier.

This will be definitely a different perspective from what you experience on the panoramic boardwalks.

This navigation is a 1-hour group tour done on the same day you do the Perito Moreno Glacier tour.

DAY 10: EL CALAFATE

Icy Blue Giants: Navigate the Largest Patagonian Glaciers and take the most Awe-inspiring Glacier Photos (in boat’s VIP section)

Hop aboard as we embark on a discovery journey to admire the second largest glacier in South America: the Upsala, as well as other Patagonian ice giants only accessible by boat. The glaciers’ grandness is imposing, and their color remarkable: ranging from pure white to shades of dark blue. We’ll get comfortable in our seats, inside the exclusive VIP cabin on the upper floor of our ship, where we’ll experience better panoramic views with superior comfort and service.

On our way to the Upsala Glacier, we’ll enjoy great photo opportunities while we see icebergs of incredible and diverse shapes and sizes.

This is a full-day group tour and includes lunch at VIP boat cabin, including water, soft drinks, wine and beer.

DAY 11: LAST DAY IN EL CALAFATE

Transfer in private vehicle to El Calafate airport.

Bariloche

DAY 11: YOU ARRIVE IN BARILOCHE

(staying for 3 nights, with 2 tours included)

Flight arrival in Bariloche. Welcome at airport and private transfer to your hotel.

Depending on your arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask your tour guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 12: BARILOCHE

A Panoramic Hiking Experience to Awe-Inspiring Vistas (private tour)

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind panoramic hiking experience, where you’ll be enchanted by some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of Patagonia, including one of the ten most beautiful views in the world, as rated by National Geographic!

Our expert guide will help you hone your hiking skills, as you set out to explore the surrounding areas of Mount Llao Llao. You’ll also take a chairlift ride up Campanario Hill, where you’ll enjoy awe-inspiring panoramic views of deep-blue lakes and snow-capped mountains. Get your camera ready as this will surely be one of the best opportunities to take some of the most wonderful and sublime landscape photos out there!

This is a half-day private tour.

DAY 13: BARILOCHE

Navigating the Nahuel Huapi Lake & Exploring and Hiking at Victoria Island and the Myrtle Forest (with private guide)

Prepare to navigate the beautiful blue waters of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, the largest in Argentina’s Lake District, set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Andes mountain range. We’ll enjoy our exclusive seating in the boat’s upper deck cabin. From here we’ll experience superior panoramic views and a much more exclusive setting, since there are only 50 seats in this cabin (compared to the over-200-people capacity of the regular cabin).

Known for its cold glacial waters and for being the habitat of kelp gulls and blue-eyed cormorants (which are typically only found near oceans), the Nahuel Huapi Lake provides plenty of natural beauty and beckons with the serenity of its waters.

We’ll visit the largest island on the Nahuel Huapi Lake: Victoria Island, home to a wide array of flora and fauna; also offering plenty of history, including ancient cave paintings. Another highlight of this navigation includes a visit to a unique forest of myrtle trees at Arrayanes National Park. These intriguing, cinnamon-hued trees are known for their attractive, smooth and tan bark, peppered with white spots; and giving the forest a captivating mystique. It’s widely rumored that Walt Disney drew inspiration from this myrtle forest to create his animated classic ’Bambi’ but there’s actually no evidence to back up this claim.

This is a full-day tour. You’ll have your own private expert guide to help you make the most out of your tour experience. Transfers to and from the port will be done on group basis.

(staying for 2 nights, with 1 tour included)

Flight arrival in Iguazu.

Transfer in private vehicle to your hotel. Depending on your flight arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask your tour guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 15: IGUAZU

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

DAY 16: LAST DAY IN IGUAZU

Transfer in private vehicle to Iguazu airport.

Buenos Aires

DAY 16: YOU ARRIVE IN BUENOS AIRES

Located at the heart of the historic San Telmo neighborhood, you’ll enjoy a world-class Tango show in a restored tenement building (or, "conventillo"). This enchanting show also boasts unique features of Argentine folklore.

As you step through the doors, you’ll feel as though you have traveled back in time, with the interior of the building preserved in its original style. The show at La Ventana is a journey through the history of Tango, in which you’ll experience different and authentic styles of this mesmerizing dance, each with its own particular set of music, dancing style, and costumes.

This tour includes group transfers and dinner with non-alcoholic beverages & wine.

DAY 17: BUENOS AIRES

Transfer from your hotel to Ezeiza International Airport in private vehicle.
