Sharon Vanvalkenburg and Kelly Carter

(New Liskeard, Ontario, Canada)

"I wish these folks worked in all of the countries that I would like to travel to. The logistics for our adventure were handled perfectly."

"The completely customized Travel Booklet provided by Exploration Journeys kept us on track, both before and during our trip, and was an invaluable resource."

Sharon & Kelly visited: Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza, Ushuaia, El Calafate and Bariloche.
This was their first trip to Argentina

TRIP REVIEW OF SHARON VANVALKENBURG AND KELLY CARTER

"I wish these folks worked in all of the countries that I would like to travel to. The logistics for our adventure were handled perfectly. All our transfers went smoothly. Fred checked us in online for all of the internal flights, and ensured that the local tour operator or the hotel gave us our boarding passes before we headed to the airport.

The completely customized Travel Booklet provided by Exploration Journeys kept us on track, both before and during our trip, and was an invaluable resource.

Returning to Buenos Aires at the end of our adventure, I reached out to Fred for help in finding llama wool to take home as a gift, and he found a store, sent web links to the color choices, then arranged for the wool to be delivered to our hotel! That’s a wonderful, helpful, above and beyond kind of thing to do, and it’s the service level that we received from Fred and Exploration Journeys from our first email to them to our return home.

Exploration Journeys provided us with a truly enjoyable and memorable 20-day overview of Argentina, and made it positively easy for us to get around this beautiful country. Fred worked with us to put together a trip itinerary that included the destinations that we wanted to visit, and tours/activities that helped us to explore each of them in the way we wanted.
We toured historic cemeteries in Buenos Aires, learned about its many districts, enjoyed an evening of tango and good food, and travelled west to visit an estancia for a day.
Iguazu Falls, shared with Brazil, provided the most spectacular waterfall views that we have ever seen, along with some great fun in dining.
In Mendoza, we biked through a winery, tasting lots of very fine wine en route. The next day, we headed into the mountains, with the goal of Aconcagua National Park. Road closures prevented this from happening, and our tour company quickly provided a great alternative. It featured a great drive through the most lonely high countryside, along twisting, winding mountain roads. The views were absolutely magnificent.
In Ushuaia, we hiked to a still partly frozen mountain lake, paddled to windswept bays, and walked historic farmlands. We even toured a very good prison museum.
El Calafate means all things glacier. Here we visited the Glaciarium, boated to beautiful blue giant icebergs, and spent time trekking on glaciers too.
Beautiful Bariloche offered rich chocolate, a food festival, hiking to snow-capped mountain lookouts, and boating to the most amazing, protected myrtle forest.
The hotels that we stayed at throughout our travels were all very good, and exceeded our expectations."

SHARON & KELLY'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.

Images of Buenos Aires: European Heritage and Latin American Passion (private tour)

Buenos Aires has been chosen for 3 consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) as the #1 destination to visit in South America by millions of TripAdvisor users in their “Traveler’s Choice” contest... and rightfully so! This cosmopolitan, vibrant, and sophisticated city, commonly called the “Paris of Latin America,” is the best place in the world to enjoy a first-class tango show and to eat some of the tastiest steak, accompanied by celebrated Argentine Malbec wine.

Our expert “porteño” (as locals are called) guide will take you on a cultural journey, where you’ll visit the most iconic neighborhoods and learn about the highlights of the city; taking in its architecture, culture, history, and more! This tour is also a great opportunity to learn from your expert tour guide, the necessary information and useful tips to make the most of your free time in the city.

This is a private 4-hour tour.

DAY 2: LAST DAY IN BUENOS AIRES

Transfer in private vehicle to Buenos Aires Airport.

Iguazu Falls

DAY 2: YOU ARRIVE IN IGUAZU

(staying for 2 nights, with 3 tours included)

Flight arrival in Iguazu.

Depending on your flight arrival time you will have time to go first to your hotel or you will be taken directly to your tour and then to your hotel.

Behold the Breathtaking Panoramic Views of Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian Side (private tour)

With 80% of the falls located on the Argentine side, it is only from the Brazilian side that one can see almost all of them at once, in full, breathtakingly panoramic views.

The Brazilian side offers majestic scenic views of the beauty and entirety of the falls; this is because the Brazilian footbridge lies across the river from the falls, offering a unique perspective and epic scenic views, making the Brazilian side different and absolutely complementary to the experience from the Argentinean side.

This is a half-day private tour.

Walking Among Exotic Birds in the Iguazu Rainforest

You’re about to enter a one-of-a-kind bird sanctuary! Here you’ll find the largest colony of toucans on display in the world, as well as the largest colony of parrots on display in South America, along with 150 different bird species from Brazil and all over the world, many of them endangered.

Located in the midst of the lush tropical rainforest, Foz Tropicana Bird Park is an internationally-recognized rescue and preservation center for endangered birds; and it’s among the most important ones in South America. You’ll find yourself side by side a myriad of exotic birds, in the three walk-in aviaries, where you’ll have the opportunity to have an up-close and personal experience with amazingly colorful parrots and Toco Toucans, among many other birds… all of them right next to you or even flying over your head!

In addition to the diversity and beauty of the birds you’ll see, the park itself presents itself as a unique location. It covers nearly 40 acres (16 hectares) of rainforest, so you’re quite literally going to find yourself in the middle of nature as you make your way along the trails!

This visit lasts about 2 hours and is done on the same day you do the Brazilian side of the falls tour.

DAY 3: 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.

Beholding the Perito Moreno Glacier from its Seven Panoramic Boardwalks

Prepare to visit one of the world’s most unique and awe-inspiring glaciers: The Perito Moreno Glacier. This grandiose glacier showcases its mighty glory in the Patagonian Glaciers National Park, which has been declared as a 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 it’s also the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet as well.

The Perito Moreno is of the few glaciers in the world that is actually growing and advancing. This is opposed to the majority of the world’s glaciers that are retreating and melting due to the effects of global warming.

Our destination is the panoramic boardwalks which overlook the Perito Moreno Glacier.

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

This navigation is a 1 hour group tour booked for Joanne and Edward.

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.

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.

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.

Tango is a universe onto itself as it creates a multi-layered marriage of music, dance, singing and poetry.

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

DAY 17: BUENOS AIRES

A Day in the Life of a Gaucho: Santa Susana Ranch

You’re invited to experience a day in the life of a “gaucho” at beautiful Estancia Santa Susana. This is a perfect opportunity to get out of the city and explore the Argentinean countryside, with the natural surroundings of the Argentine Pampas (region of very fertile plains). As you tour the facilities of the estancia (ranch), you’ll get a first-person glimpse of the gaucho’s life in its heyday.

The “gaucho” is the Argentinean equivalent of a North American “cowboy”, and has traditionally been the primary laborer on Argentine estancias (or ranches). Gauchos flourished in the mid-18th century; since then, the gaucho has become a central symbol of Argentine tradition.

You’ll also have the chance to hop on the gaucho’s most prized possession: his horse! You can either choose to do a very short ride on the horse, or take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.

You’ll learn about the Gaucho’s work and customs, as well as enjoy a traditional Argentine barbecue, also known as “asado”. Argentina is famous for its beef.

After lunch, enjoy a Tango and Folklore show with some time to relax before afternoon activities. Witness a mesmerizing boleadoras show performed by a gaucho. Boleadoras are traditional throwing weapons used by gauchos, designed to capture animals by entangling their legs (made of weights on the ends of interconnected cords, and used to capture animals by entangling their legs).

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

The pickup for this tour is at the hotel but on the return transfer the company organizing the transfer offers different stops in central areas of the city.

DAY 18: BUENOS AIRES

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

We look forward to welcoming you again in Argentina!
