what old people do?” The answer is no. The truth is travel tours have
come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old
ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the
independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and
adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a
foreign place. First off, they keep the groups small, usually capping
out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly
huge group of gawking tourists. Second, these tours don’t just scratch
the surface of the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of
local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than
you would on your own. Also, because these tours have already been
developed to showcase the best of the best, you’ll save yourself from
countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out
where to go and what to eat. Argentina is not a destination for the
wimpy. As you scale mountains, make friends with llamas and take in
some of the most impressive mountain scenery in the entire world you’ll
be glad you decided to come to Argentina. Pack your best coat and get
ready to do some serious shopping in Buenos Aires—a trip to Argentina
will prove to be the adventure of a lifetime.
