We\'ve traveled fairly extensively in various parts of the world in a variety of manners. This trip has to rank as our best trip ever, as a couple. Our itinerary was incredible, our lodging amazing, our tour leader knowledgeable and articulate, and the places we visited were beyond description. We came home relaxed, fat, and happy!
It was really better than we expected because, based on our information from you, we thought we\'d be in a tour group of up to 12 people. Instead, it was just us and our guide and driver. We didn\'t expect the great transportation that we had--the vehicles were comfortable and well maintained. We didn\'t expect the \"luxurious\" hotels that we stayed in. So our trip was, generally, far more than we expected.
Our tour guide for our Taste of Argentina trip was fabulous, as was our driver. They were incredibly knowledgeable, flexible, and organized. They made an effort to find out what our interests were and catered to those interests. Between our tour guide and our driver, there was no question we asked that they didn\'t have an answer to. They were amazing!
I was amazed at the quality of the places we stayed. We were in some small towns, yet our hotels were beautiful, immaculate, and the staff incredibly helpful and friendly. We weren\'t expecting 5 star hotels, and while we didn\'t stay at what some people would consider a 5 star hotel, they were spacious and very comfortable. While it was helpful that I speak Spanish, we could have survived quite nicely on my husband\'s limited vocabulary of cerveza and bife!
