Visiting the North of Argentina was on our list. We have booked our tour through New World. We had a good and personal contact with Cami (travel agent). I had a list of the places I wanted to visit beforehand. Cami made our customized tour and it was great.
A nice selfdrive tour with our kids during the Christmas holidays. The temperature in Buenos Aires was quite high but once in the North the climate was drier. We enjoyed the beautiful nature and day trips. Nice welcome from the New World team.
