Talk to the Expert
My love for South America started when I was living in Lima, Peru, and family and friends came to visit. That year I went to Machu Picchu 5 times! I do not have one drop of Latin blood in me, which is painfully obvious if you see me dance, and yet without realizing it for the past 15 years South America has been my home

Day by Day Itinerary
Day 1 Mendoza: The Journey Begins
Begin your luxury trip through Argentina by arriving at the airport in Mendoza. The most important city in the western region of the country and capital of the province, it sits at the base of the Andes. Known for its sunshine, with more than 300 days a year, and dry climate with little rain, that combination makes it a great place for growing wine grapes that produce famously tasty varietals. Upon your arrival, you’ll be met by our driver for a private transfer to your hotel in the middle of this fantastic wine-growing region where you can soak up views of the snow-capped Andes.
Day 2 Mendoza: Day of Leisure
Enjoy a day on your own exploring Mendoza. The city itself is fun to wander through with its wide, leafy streets flanked by art deco and modern buildings. Plaza Independencia is the largest green space and plaza, located in the city center. It hosts the subterranean Museo Municipal de Arte Moderno which exhibits contemporary and modern art, a fountain with a dancing waters’ show, and a theatre. There are street performers and musicians, along with the occasional artisans selling handcrafted items on the sidewalks. You’ll find countless restaurants that serve a wide range of gastronomic delights when you’re ready for a break from sightseeing.
Day 3 Mendoza: Taste & Tour at the Lujan de Cuyo Wineries
Located just south of Mendoza city proper, Lujan de Cuyo is home to some of Argentina’s most famous wines, including Cheval des Andes. Malbec is its most important grape variety which produces intensely flavored, bold reds. In 1993, it became the first wine region in the country to be officially recognized as an appellation and also includes several other wine-producing zones. The small town of Lujan de Cuyo itself lies along the northern banks of the Mendoza River with the viticultural area stretching south for about 20 miles. It’s here that you’ll enjoy a full day of tasting, with lunch included.
Day 4 Buenos Aires: Arrival & Discovery
Leaving Mendoza, your private driver will transfer you to the local airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival, a private transfer brings you to your hotel in the city. Enjoy the rest of the day to yourself, soaking up the eclectic mix of the European ambiance and the South American spirit. The city was founded by immigrants, and today you’ll see influences by the Italians, French, and Spanish. In fact, in the Belgrano and Recoleta neighborhoods, you might think you’ve been transported to Europe. Residents of Buenos Aires even consider themselves more European. Unwind or enjoy people-watching in the cafes, plazas, or parks.
Day 5 Buenos Aires: Tour the City’s Southern Section & Enjoy a Tango Night
Discover the southern part of the city on a sightseeing tour that will reveal its history and architecture. Stroll the wide avenues lined with French-style architecture leading to Plaza de Mayo, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral and Casa Rosada. You’ll explore older areas of the city, bohemian San Telmo with its bustling markets and antique stores, and the old port of La Boca with its Italian and tango traditions, now one of the most popular spots in Buenos Aires. This evening, take in a gourmet dinner paired with fine Argentinian wines and a tango show at Gala Tango, the city’s most glamourous destination.
Day 6 Buenos Aires: Northern Buenos Aires Sightseeing & A Unique Dining Experience
Today’s sightseeing tour covers the city’s northern section, including Recoleta’s grand mansions that reveal the wealth of an early time. Even the cemetery is a masterpiece with thousands of works of art. Stroll through trendy and walkable Palermo, the largest barrio with tree-lined streets and long, narrow single-story homes. This evening you’ll take part in a special Fogon-Asado experience that includes dinner with a wine pairing. The closed-door dining experience features Argentine Asado classics prepared using different grill cooking techniques using prime cuts of meat with boutique Argentinian wines selected to enhance the flavors of the ingredients.
Day 7 Bariloche: Flight to the Land of Glistening Lakes, Mountains & Chocolate
The private transfer brings you back to the airport in Buenos Aires for your flight to Bariloche where you’ll be welcomed by our driver for transfer to your hotel. Surrounded by the Andes Mountains on the southern shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake, this city is renowned for its breath-taking scenery. You might want to relax and simply enjoy the view or do a little exploring in the city, perhaps sampling its highly acclaimed artisanal food and desert scene that started here about a half-century ago. It’s particularly exceptional for its chocolate, as a paradise for cocoa connoisseurs and a great spot for souvenirs.
Day 8 Bariloche: Touring Nahuel Huapi
Today you’ll take a guided tour of one of the biggest lakes in Argentinian Patagonia, Nahuel Huapi. Your guide will pick you up for a full-day excursion that begins at the port. From there, you’ll enjoy privately navigating the lake, with about an hour to immerse yourself in nature and the incredible striking beauty that surrounds you. Don’t forget your camera, with some of the most awe-inspiring scenery featured, including visits to various beaches, glistening bays, and cascading waterfalls. Lunch will be included and served in a unique setting. After returning to the port you’ll be transferred back to your lodging.
Day 9 Bariloche: Day of Leisure
You’ll have the day to yourself to enjoy Bariloche and its many delights. Perhaps visit Nahuel Huapi National Park (Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi), the best spot for outdoor adventurers who want to take in the remote wilderness beauty. It’s home to multiple lakes, abundant wildlife, Mount Tronador, a dormant volcano, and miles and miles of hiking trails. Or enjoy the Swiss-like atmosphere of Bariloche and its fantastic chocolate boutiques. Even during the peak tourist season, prices tend to be lower than what they are in bigger cities like Buenos Aires, making it a great place to do your shopping.
Day 10 Bariloche: Departure
The most difficult part of your adventure has come today: time to say farewell to beautiful Argentina. Your driver will meet you at your accommodation for a private transfer to the airport in Bariloche to catch your flight home or embark on further travels. With so many amazing destinations easily reached from here, you might want to extend your trip to explore more of Patagonia, visit Chile, Peru, or even Ecuador. Whatever you desire, our travel experts are easy to reach for help with your itinerary.
