Amazing Patagonian Trip!
Jan 2019 • Friends
My 2 friends and I have been dreaming of going to Patagonia. We booked this tour for mid January, and it truly made the trip completely stress free. Brenda was incredible at keeping us updated with the planning of the trip. Since there were 3 of us, she was able to find us "triples" at the hotels (we stayed in comfort hotels). We saved money this way, which we were able to use towards booking excursions (Perito Moreno Glacier and Torres Del Paine). The final itinerary was beautifully organized, and made it easy to follow.

This tour is perfect for you if you don't enjoy planning the logistical aspects of a trip (hotels, transportation). Otherwise, it is a very independent trip and you can do as you like on your leisure days! Highly recommend!!

I actually did a 12 day tour, because they were so good at making changes so I could do what I wanted to do. All of the arrangements worked out perfectly. If I was supposed to be picked up at 8am, I was.

Amazing
Feb 2018 • Solo
Had an amazing time in Patagonia and Say Huaque made it so easy for me.
Its the perfect combination between organised tour and indepandant holiday.
Hotels, transport and few excursions organised but you also have free time to do other things you want like hiking in Chalten. Almost every day they get in contact with your hotel to confirm your next day activity.

Great Experience in Patagonia
Jan 2018 • Couples
We had a great experience in Patagonia on our tour organized by Say Hueque. Our agent Agustin was very responsive to our questions. The hotels were all great, especially the Madre Tierra in El Calafate. The guides on our full day tours (Perito Moreneo and Torres del Paine) were excellent and very knowledgeable. All arrangements worked out perfectly. Be ready for a long bus ride to get to Puerto Natales/Torres del Paine from El Calafate, but it's worth it to see that spectacular park. If you're not a heavy duty hiker, you might ask about other options in El Chalten besides hikes from town.

Fantastic Company to work with!
Dec 2017 • Couples
My husband and I recently did a 11 day (9 touring days) trip to Patagonia in early December. We are very independent travelers, opting to do things on our own rather than with large tour groups. Say Hueque was the perfect partner for us. They took all the guess work out of the transportation between locations, including airport/hotel transportation. They were 100% flexible and the trips were completely customizable. We were able to plan our trip exactly how we wanted it, without dealing with the boring logistics. All Hotels were GREAT, above average compared to the prices we were paying, all transports and excursions were right on time, very professional, and very well organized. We got dossiers for all of our pick up times, and they even printed our boarding pass for one leg of the trip. We still felt like independent travelers, with the freedom to come and go as we pleased, but with the peace of mind/security that we were taken care of.

I would HIGHLY recommend choosing this company and we will certainly be using them again for when we come back and visit!

Great Introduction to Pategonia
Mar 2017 • Couples
Say Heque did a great job planning and executing our first trip to Argentina. They customized our trip to include the tours we were most interested in which included: A tour of Buenos Aires, a trip to El Chalten and Cerro Torre where we hiked on our own, a boat ride to Perito Moreno Glacier, and a tour of Iguazu Falls. The guides were great and in the case of Iguazu a personal tour. The pick ups were flawless and well orchestrated. The only drawback was it was a bit steep on the price but I still considered it worth the money and saved us a lot of stress from booking everything ourselves.

Great tour of Patagonia
Nov 2017 • Family
We opted to use Say Hueque to help arrange our visit to Patagonia after reading online reviews. We liked the idea of having a lot of independence-- not following a tour-- but getting help with our itinerary. The short of it is that they did a good job but we did have to put in work in communicating with them and often had to repeat what we wanted to get things straight. In the end all was great but we had to stay on top of things; requests were sometimes not acknowledged or acted on the first time but eventually (mostly) gotten straight. The strengths of Say Hueque were that they made good recommendations on what to see, and arranged terrific places for us to stay. The weakest part was that sometimes the questions we asked were addressed by just providing a link to a canned description of their tours; or a request (multiple times) to please allay our nervousness over an itinerary that had days and dates listed incorrectly were never addressed; or that a voucher for our grown daughter to catch a bus from Puerto Natales to El Calafate did not arrive until we had separated from her while she was hiking the W, so we had to slip it into a bag she had left at the hotel and hope she found her way to the right bus. In fairness we were difficult customers, as we asked for a customized tour in which my wife and I visited El Calafate/Perito Moreno, Puerto Natales/Torres del Paine, and El Chalten (all recommended) while our grown kids hiked the W, which was complicated, and they worked it all out. We would have liked to know that there was a place we could have stayed in Torres del Paine, rather than Puerto Natales, which we learned from friends afterwards. But they got us a great hotel in Puerto Natales (Noi Indigo) and in El Calafate (Esplendor Hotel). We switched from their choice in El Chalten to Chalten Suites, and although we found no availabillity on the web they got us a room there, so that was really helpful. And they did get back to us by email within 1-2 days on all occasions. Buses that they booked on were fine. Overall a great experience; just be proactive and be prepared to work a bit with them.

Say Hueque are fantastic for the independent traveller
Oct 2017 • Solo
I've just returned from a great trip to Argentina. I had a week and a half in the Patagonia region and needed a company to help me with the arrangements, but to ensure that I still had a high level of independence. I didn't want a week and a half with a tour group! Say Hueque absolutely fitted the bill. They made the basic travel and hotel arrangements, and a couple of excursions, but I had the freedom on many of the days to do my thing, and to explore whatever restaurants I wanted.
The arrangements all went like clockwork and the quality of the hotels was great. I got extremely good service from the Say Hueque staff. They always responded very quickly and cared about me having a great experience.
Really do recommend them.

The sound is unforgettable, but by the time you turn after hearing that sound, the ice is already entering the wate
