  4. Recently returned from Viking’s South America and Chilean Fjords Cruise. Used Patrick Watts in the Falkland Islands. Highly recommend this tour group.

  5. Just returned from a 17 night cruise in South America. Had booked tours with Defrantur Tours as we had planned to extend our stay in BA. Unfortunately we were caught up in the corona virus pandemic and had to cancel our tours. While we were on the cruise, Ricardo, the owner of Defrantur, kept us informed of the of the situation as it was evolving in Argentina. Ricardo gave us a short tour after picking us up from the cruise terminal and taking us to our hotel. Had a pleasant ride to the airport with his son, Tomas. This is a family business and they are very knowledgeable. I highly re
  6. Hi CC, Thanks for the great tips. Will check out a transfer from Hilton. We are booked for Frank’s AsadoAdventure tour. It sounds wonderful. See you in October!
  7. We will be disembarking our Viking cruise in BA and staying at the Hilton. Are taxis readily available and close by the cruise terminal? Approximate cost to Hilton? Would also appreciate any recommendations for day tours in BA. Thank you.
  8. I’ll be on the Sky (hopefully) in October. See you are a graduate of KP. I worked for S/L, USSM and MLL. I’m sure our paths have crossed at some point.
  9. We have stayed on deck 5 in 5101 and loved it.
  10. Thanks for your comments. We have been able to move to 5100. We like Deck 5 and for this cruise port side is where we want to be. Happy it was available. Thanks again.
  11. Thank you for your comments. We are booked on the TA next October (Explorers Suite) Lisbon/Miami and now decided to do the the Rome Lisbon portion. 8010 is the only room available. So now we will now book 8010 for Rome/Lisbon!! We we are also doing the South America cruise as well end of February next year. Can’t wait. Thanks again.
  12. Looking for pros/cons for cabins on Deck 8. TIA.
  13. Thanks for this great information. Loved your blog and photos. What tour group did you use?
  14. Will be on the Viking Jupiter next March visiting this port. Trying to decide which tour to take. We have narrowed it down to either Punta Tombo or Punta Ninfas and El Pedral. If anyone has been to either of these would appreciate comments. Thank you.
