FO worked very hard to arrange for us to spend extra time in Montevideo (lovely) with the tour department arranging extra excursions. However, we were thrown out at 4 am in the morning. Problems continued at Santos, Brazil when the port authorities held us up for so long that all tours for that day had to be cancelled. We began to feel that South America 'had it in for us'.
Nevertheless, it was a wonderful holiday and I would advise anyone thinking of booking in the future not to be put off by Argentina's attitude. Fred Olsen, as always, did a good job.
