Great tour guides I would love to go again soon
We have just returned from a 18 night trip to Argentina, visiting Buenos Aries, Salta, Iguazu, Patagonia. We have had the most amazing time, visiting four very different areas. The falls at Iguazu was a particular highlight, staying at the Belmond Du Cataratas on the national park, was a real treat ... we took a boat trip up and close to the waterfalls and then a helicopter view which was breath taking. The sheer size and volume of water is unbelievable, coupled with the tropical climate and chatter or birds and butterflies everywhere! The glaciers at Patagonia were another amazing sight, again you can't believe the size of them, and Calafate was a great town with fabulous restaurants and of course wine! We did 3 nights in Buenos Aries but could have done more. La Boca was such a cool place to visit, and we spent our last night at Estancia La Bamba de Arreco which was the most fabulous hotel, I wished we had stayed another night. All the hotels, guides, staff, drivers were all so helpful and efficient, it was a perfectly tailored trip that absolutely covered all our needs and much more. All the extra's that are included from boat trips to wine tours and adventures that fill your days and nights are what make Pioneer so great. Thoroughly recommend this company.
The big attraction of this trip was the opportunity to see Gorillas and Chimpanzees in their natural habitat. I was not disappointed. It was a very emotional experience and never to be forgotten. Uganda was a very pleasant surprise. Some of the drives between venues were quite long but never boring. The scenery is often breath taking and witnessing the Ugandan people getting on with their lives as of course most are outside in the daylight hours! And eyes opened to what can be transported on a motor bike!. The wildlife parks can be enjoyed without loads of other vehicles and the water safaris were the first for me. The water safari in Queen Elizabeth Park is particularly memorable. Abdullah, our driver / guide was attentive and knowledgeable. I always felt safe with him. He was clearly very experienced and a very nice guy! Overall, loved the trip.
Thanks Alan. We are so pleased you enjoyed your trip
