TRIP REVIEW OF ROGER & LEANN KEYES

"My wife and I have traveled all over the world and have been on hundreds of private and group tours as well as over 20 cruises. We have never had as great of an experience as what we received from Fred and his staff. The tour guides Fred hired for our tours were absolutely outstanding and their personal attention to our preferences was second to none.
Fred suggestions on tours that would provide the best Argentina experience were spot on. Having Fred available to contact throughout our entire trip was also very helpful. We only had 2 small glitches, not Fred’s fault we might add, that he quickly resolved and went well beyond our expectations to make things right. We will not hesitate to recommend Argentina Exploration Journeys to any or our friends and family and we will use Fred’s services again the next time we visit Argentina or Brazil."

ROGER & LEANN'S BOOKED TRIP ITINERARY

Buenos Aires

DAY 1: YOU ARRIVE IN BUENOS AIRES

(staying for 2 nights, with 2 tours 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: BUENOS AIRES

Off-the-Beaten-Path: the Unexplored Historic Buenos Aires (private tour)

Beyond the usual highlights of Buenos Aires, lies another part of the city that remains unknown and inaccessible to most tourists. We’ll visit the “forgotten” and unknown neighborhoods of Buenos Aires that are far off the typical tourist circuits while delving into the world of secret societies, traditional bars, amazing stories, and gorgeous buildings.

In a cultural journey that grasps both the past and present of the working class sectors of Buenos Aires, this tour rediscovers the important contributions of workers, immigrants, tramways, tango, and soccer in the city’s historical development.

This is a 3 hour private tour.

DAY 3: LAST DAY IN BUENOS AIRES

Transfer in private vehicle to Buenos Aires Airport.

Iguazu Falls

DAY 3: YOU ARRIVE IN IGUAZU

(staying for 2 nights, with 3 tours 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 our guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 4: 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 5: LAST DAY IN IGUAZU

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.

Transfer with private vehicle to Iguazu airport.

Buenos Aires

DAY 5: YOU ARRIVE IN BUENOS AIRES

(staying for 3 nights, with 1 tour included)

Arrival in Buenos Aires and transfer to your hotel in private vehicle.

DAY 6: BUENOS AIRES

Free day to relax and enjoy your own explorations.

DAY 7: 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 8: BUENOS AIRES

Transfer from your hotel to cruise port in private vehicle.

We look forward to welcoming you again in Argentina!
