Itinerary

Day 1: Mendoza: Wineries Tour

Welcome to Mendoza!

Argentina’s main wine region and heartland of Malbec grape, has also impressive mountains (like Aconcagua, climbers world known summit), outdoor sports (adventurous rafting) and breathtaking landscapes.

Upon arrival, you will be taken to your hotel (shared service)

In the afternoon you will be picked up from your hotel for a half day tour to the Mendoza Wine Country. The tour is in a small group and with a bilingual guide.

During the day, you will visit two of the best wineries in the area where you will learn about their philosophy, the wine making process and have the chance to taste some delicious locally produced Cabernet and Malbec, guided by our local wine expert. Return to the hotel in the afternoon.

Day 2: High Mountain Tour

After breakfast, you will have a full day tour (shared service) to the nearby Andes Mountains where you will enjoy some panoramic views and the impressive Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas. Starting along the Mendoza River, you will be amazed by the view of the majestic mountain range Cordon del Plata as well as the Potrerillos Dam, colossal work for hydraulic power generation and also the beautiful valley of Cacheuta.

Our next visit is Uspallata, pre-Hispanic settlement of aborigines “Huarpes” and the southern last point of the Inca Empire, as far as the Inca track from Peru.

We also pass by the villages of Picheuta, Polvareda and Punta de Vacas, access point to Mendoza ski resort “Los Penitentes” which works from June to August.

Further ahead is Puente del Inca where river “Las Cuevas” has carved the mountain forming a natural bridge with strands of natural hot springs. You will also be able to appreciate the magnificence of Mount Aconcagua the “colossus of America” with 6959 meters of height

Following the international route to reach our ultimate destination there are the Customs Offices “Horcones”, and a few kilometers ahead, on the border with Chile, there is Las Cuevas village located at 3.200 meters above the sea level.

Return to the hotel in the afternoon.

Day 3: Mendoza

At appropriate time, you will be transferred to the airport or bus terminal (shared service). Today, you can choose to extent your travels purchasing any of our available offers in Patagonia, Buenos Aires or the rest of the Andes area.

"I learned about Say Hueque through the internet – mainly trip advisor. It was an easy choice to work with you because there were not many available recommended tours. I also liked the easy communication through the online chat and that it was possible to make last minute bookings. I also consulted my sister who owns a travel agency in Singapore and she mentioned that the prices offered by you guys seem quite reasonable.
Being able to make changes to my tour at the very last minute was my highlight of traveling with you - thank you for helping to arrange! The tours were also in very small groups of just 3 people so it was more cozy. Hotel Peninsula Valdes was ok, didn't stay at other hotels.
My favorite excursion was Doradillo excursion but this was done by another tour agency (i think it's Flamenco travel as Huinca travel didn't have available tours. Huinca travel was really great in being able to help me do the last minute arrangements too). In addition to watching the whales, the guide took us to other locations which had beautiful views and we even went on a mini trek!
The initial itinerary provided to me had a tour to Punta Tombo to see the penguins, and I was only told that Punta Tombo is not available AFTER i made confirmed the tour by making the payments. The itinerary provided should have been an up-to-date one since it is customized. I had 2 options as replacement for my Punta Tombo tour (2nd day): Punta Loma and Doradillo. Initially i chose Punta Loma but on the whale watching tour during the first day, the guide told me that the sea lions are in the Valdes area and not Punta Loma this season so Punta Loma would be pretty empty.....hence i made the last minute request to change to Doradillo. This was a lucky decision for me because i met other tour customers who went to Punta Loma and told me there was no sea lions to see at all. While I' m happy that you guys managed to grant my last minute request, this information should have been made known to me when the tours were offered also to avoid disappointment.
Thanks!

"We just returned from a 3week South America trip. It was great.
We searched on internet and learned about Say Hueque. We decided to travel with you because the comments over the 6day trip Attacama-Uyuni were really good.
I would say our highlight were the good guides who gave lots of information. We only stayed in e one hotel, the Don Tomas hotel in San Pedro.
We had short excursions and one large: the three day 4wd to Uyuni. The El Tunio exursions was great. Early to get up but worth it. The 4wd tour was awesome with highlights and depths (the overnight stay in the refugee: ‘basic’ accommodation was an understatement). Although an experience, it took many hours to recover from it.
I forgot the name of the guide to the El Tunio geysers – he was awesome (I believe he is an San Pedro artist). He gave lots of information, in Spanish and English and full of humor

"Mendoza and surrounding area is beautiful. I have appreciated the checkins at both locations.
I would like to say that there are some parts of my trip that were great and others that were not that good unfortunately.
The airport transfers have been wonderful and very timely. The hotels have been beautiful and clean; with staff being very helpful.
However, the tours and some aspects of the tours were very disappointing. I am aware there was an error for the city tour pick up. I am greatful that alternative plans were arranged allowing me to see the great historical elements of Buenos Aires. However, the tour was rushed. I had the opportunity to walk around certain monuments. However, I did not get the chance to walk around and explore the different areas for extended periods of time. I think I was expecting a walking tour and I am not sure if the usual tour involves driving around to different sites. The Tango show and meal was amazing.
The tours I have had with Huenata are well organized however, I was placed in all Spanish group for both of the tours. The tour guides were able to speak in both Spanish and English however; it was difficult for me to interact with the group. As a solo traveller group tours are usually the opportunity to met and socialize with different people. I was looking forward to seeing award winning vineyards in Mendoza and unfortunately the wine tour was average.
The full day tour through Acongua mountains to Uspallata was absolutely beautiful! However, the restaurant we went to for a late lunch was not good. The service was poor and the food was very poor. This meal cost 200 pesos; for a meal that was half eaten. I paid 280 pesos for a fantastic meal at the hotel. The full day tour should include lunch.
I thought I would be getting a better quality for the tours especially considering it is low season. I am not sure that this tour has given me great value for my money.
Thank you,

Olivia

"Thank you for your welcome back email. We arrived home yesterday afternoon. :)
It was an awesome trip! Words can't describe the beauty of Torres del Paine. I wanted to thank you for setting up our Cave tour in Puerto Natales. And I also wanted to extend our gratitude to Carolina (our guide). Carolina was very friendly and very knowledgeable.
I will keep your information, specially when we travel to Argentina. We have Cape Horn and Ushuaia, Buenos Aires in mind.
Again, thank you soooo very much.
