    Hi,

    My partner and I (we are 55 years old) have been willing to do a trip to South America for ages. Finally, I think we are going to Argentina. I checked on the web trying to find a serious travel agency which offers custom-made trips

    Hi there,

    The best times to visit Argentina are during Argentina carnival time January and February). Gualeguichu is the place where the most important of Argentina's carnival celebrations take place.

    As you are interested in a custom trip, check out Argentinean Explorer specializes in Tours Expeditions and Travel to Argentina.

    Make sure you visit the Iguazu falls, do whale watching, and visit Pampas. If you like more ideas to add to your itinerary have a look at the main site "destination360.com/south-america/argentina"

    Hope this helps

    Hello Dean,

    I contacted a travel agency via Internet to organize my fishing trip last year. They adapted the program to my dates and preferences - like a tailor made trip, I am pretty sure that they will be able to help you.
    The person that I was in contact with is Carla Fernandez and her e mail address is info@argentinasanglers.com. You can try that!.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy your vacations!.

    Hello Dean,

    There are many good travel agencies out there.

    We ourselves (a Dutch/Argentinean couple) run Heart of Argentina Travel and we started our business last year. We live in the heartland of Argentina and we offer tailormade trips in this beautiful country. I'm sure we can organise a great roundtrip for you both.

    Have a great holiday in Argentina!

    Best regards,
    Jan Lettinga

    Hi there! I can recommend a great travel agency in Buenos Aires that can help you with planning your trip throughout South America. Whether you need plane tickets, accommodations, tickets to a soccer game or want to book a rafting excursion, Red Buenos Aires can do it all!

    Hey,

    there are ways to find good prices on local flights-- you just have to know where to look! Sites like expedia often overcharge you (even though it may seem like you are getting a great deal). The best thing to do is find a local agent in BA to help you. You'd be surprised what talking to a real person can do to the prices. There are some sites out there where you can find good prices and talk to people in a number of different languages who are waiting to help you. I'd recommend this over taking an unreliable bus ride (which will take you 10x longer to get there) and certainly over renting a car and driving (a foreigner driving around the Argentine country side? you might as well write yourself a ticket.). I've been here for a while and have managed to find good deals on flights to places like El Calafate, Bariloche, Iguazu, Ushuaia and more. All you have to do is TALK to people, sometimes even over the internet. That's the best advice I can give.

    Good Luck!

    LOVED Argentina! Very clean and nice. I used Tourlite Tours who were amazing and inexpensive. They give you the option of an escorted tour or an independent tour. I used the independent which gave you many options and they provide service in and around Argentina. You must visit the Casa Rosata and if you are looking for tango palors, just ask the local cab drivers, they have all the info. You can also visit Igaussu Falls from there. If you are look for info on Eva Peron, it is very scarce. The only thing I could find was a postcard from a vendor and her grave site in a mosulem. You can aslo visit Uraguy and Paraguy which has gorgeous flowers. See the tango shows, the plays especially Carmen and the steaks are superb!!!

    Hello

    I really think it depends what you're looking for and how far you're willing to travel, how much relaxing or sightseeing you want to do etc etc! I've been in summer and winter and had an excellent time on both occasions! In winter there are less tourists, prices are lower and it rarely rains, in summer the weather is wonderful but places can be crowded... see what I mean!

    Have a great trip!
