Argentina Tours for 2012, from Metropolitan Touring and Borello Travel
|Teatro Colón is one of the top visitor sites in Buenos Aires.|
Two tour operators that specialize in Argentina are offering an array of Argentina travel options for 2012. Here is a sample of how you can experience this South American nation this year.
Metropolitan Touring has announced its schedule of escorted, “fixed departure” Argentina tours for 2012, making it easy for travelers to visit a variety of Argentina vacation destinations in one nine-night trip.
Among the highlights of Metropolitan Touring’s escorted Argentina tours are the capital city of Buenos Aires, Ushuaia — the capital city of Tierra del Fuego — and El Calafate, the “city of the glaciers.”
Prices range from $941 to $1,071 for 10 days/nine nights. Departure dates are February 4, March 10, April 14, May 12, June 9, August 25, September 15, October 13 and November 10. (Personal note: I’ve taken a personalized tour with Metropolitan Touring in the city of Córdoba, Argentina, and found the service to be excellent and the guides very knowledgable.)

Borello Travel & Tours
With Argentina-born Sandra Borello as its president, its no surprise that Borello Travel & Tours is expert in putting together Argentina vacation experiences. The company offers individual and group excursions with daily departures possible for many programs — such as the five-day “Tango Experience” in Buenos Aires and five-day Iguazú Falls ecological tour.
Borello also offers soft adventure tours including horseback riding holidays, Darwin range trek and sailing trips and treks along the Andes Range. (Another personal note: I’ve joined Borello Travel & Tours on a trip to both Buenos Aires and Uruguay, and they really know their product and the destinations. They have great insight into the best that each of their destinations has to offer.)
