Our Story

OUR JOURNEY BEGINS IN BUENOS AIRES
2004
In 2004, we started as a small family owned business in our home in Buenos Aires, Argentina with a simple mission: to provide our clientele with unforgettable travel experiences. We focus on offering innovative and life-changing trips that are designed to immerse our clients in the local community. We hired and trained the best local guides from day one, many of whom are still with us today. Our initial focus is only on providing the most memorable trips to Buenos Aires.

The demand for our services for travel in Buenos Aires has been rapidly growing for years. Many of our clients ask us to expand our trips beyond Buenos Aires. We listen to our clients and create the same successful model of top-notch tours, the best guides and once in a lifetime travel to destinations throughout the country of Argentina.

START PLANNING

Schedule your free phone consultation

+ info

A destination specialist of IDEAS will contact you to schedule a FREE call (up to 1 hour) at your convenience. During this call, we will discuss the details of your desired trip such as where you want to go, what you want to do, when you want to travel, etc. We will also discuss your budget.

CREATE YOUR ITINERARY

After you pay U$D 250 deposit, our dedicated experts will create a tailor made itinerary for you.

+ info

If after the free call you decide you want to work with us, we charge a $250 non-refundable fee to create your customized itinerary. We will apply this $250 to your final package price if you book the itinerary with us. If you decide not to book with us for any reason after paying for your personalized itinerary, this fee is non-refundable.

Why do we charge this Fee?
We charge this fee because it takes us many hours to put together a personalized itinerary. We have to call our providers, check availability, spend time planning, and cover all the details. We don’t use templates or off the shelf itineraries. Every itinerary is custom made to your preferences and this takes time to do, but also results in the most memorable trips!
