Santiago, from Beyond BA, did an extraordinary job helping us plan a 2-½ week dream trip to Patagonia (El Chalten, El Calafate, and Torres del Paine). We could not have logistically planned this trip without his help coordinating all the flights, transfers, and meeting points for our family of five. Throughout the year of planning, my inquiries and concerns were always met with professionalism, optimism, and detailed answers. He made sure we were comfortable and happy with every aspect of the trip. As an example, when one of our excursions was canceled last minute due to weather conditions, we contacted him, and he went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of....on a weekend! We cannot recommend him and Beyond BA enough and would absolutely use his services again! Thank you, Santiago, for a fantastic trip!

Santiago and his team are consummate professionals: I can recommend them unreservedly. Santiago put together a great 16-day itinerary that allowed us to visit some amazing destinations in both Chile and Argentina. Planning of the trip was excellent and Santiago proved very accessible and prompt in his responses. Indeed, during the trip itself we were able to connect very easily with Santiago for any further queries. It was also lovely to catch up with Santiago in his office when we visited BA. Whilst we appreciated the very competitive pricing offered, we really valued Santiago’s great enthusiasm as well as his genuine focus on customer care and satisfaction.
The final itinerary proved excellent. This evolved over a period of time in response to our requests. It allowed us to see a lot of the 2 countries in a short space of time. Although we visited in August during low season, and the weather was cold, it was stunning. Indeed, we felt very lucky to visit at this time as tourist numbers were low. I also have to thank Santiago for his great suggestions for activities to celebrate my partner’s birthday: this proved a memorable day!
The trip itself was fantastic and proved memorable. All transfers, internal flights, days trips and excursions proceeded very smoothly and we had no worries about any of the logistics including crossing over from Chile to Argentina. The guides provided were friendly and informative and we had some great excursions including in Santiago, Valparaiso, Frutillar, the Toress del Paine National Park, El Calafate, the Glacier Perito Moreno, Buenos Aires and Iguaza Falls. We greatly enjoyed seeing the stunning scenery and wildlife, meeting very friendly people and enjoying some wonderful cuisine and refreshments!

Finally, we would love to return and will certainly look to Santiago to put together a new itinerary for our next visit. Many thanks to him and his team for providing a hassle-free experience and some great memories! Thank you.

We are a group of 4 in the age group of late sixties and early seventies. I got in touch with the tour manager ( more specifically Miss Audrey Ruiz) in BEYOND BA in Argentina for the tour planning. The trip was from 26/2/2020 to 16/3/2020 and was meant to be a "once in a life-time trip for the seniors".
I stated down what we must see and experience and I left it to Miss Audrey Ruiz to recommend the other sites of interest. The planning was via emails over a period of 3 to 4 months. She did a great job of meeting our bucket list of must see and experience sites and incorporated into the itinerary some other sites which bring out the colours and beauty of thers South American countries. What was also memorable was the inclusion of some local food to savour.
We had land connections, bus connections and air connections and because of the attention to point to point contacts and transfers, the whole trip was seamless.
Great job to Beyond BA and particularly to Miss Audrey Ruiz and her team. We did have this "once in a life-time trip for the seniors"

We worked with Lucila of BA for a few months before our trip and she helped us to design the itinerary , book the internal flights, arrange for transfers and tour guides in each location (Buenos Aires, Iguazu Fall, Salta, Purmamarca, El Calafate, El Chalten, Puerto Natales, Ushuaia), working within our budget. The flights and transfers were punctual, we were served by very knowledgeable and friendly tour guides and Lucila was always prompt in replying to our email and WhatsApp. We highly recommend BA for your South American adventure !

Trip to Chile and Argentina December 2022 Torres Del Paine, Fitz Roy, Perito Moreno, Iguazu falls

Santiago was the ultimate trip planner. He was excellent at organizing a very logistically complex trip with lots of details and changes that happened during the planning (e.g., airlines changing flight times). Santiago did all of this in a fun and pleasant way and was always available for any question we had before, during, and after the trip. He was always ready for every meeting and always offered alternative options for a trip based on his extensive experience in South American travel.

All the sites, the hotels, the tour guides, and the transportation he chose and booked for us worked in a very professional manner and to our complete satisfaction, all at absolutely reasonable prices.

Alvaro also joined the trip planning process to provide additional support and answers to any question during the trip itself in real time.

Many thanks Santiago & Alvaro You are the best and you created a perfect trip for our family - we had a great time and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who would like to plan a trip in South America!

In November 2022 we spent 4 unforgettable weeks in Argentina. During the planning we were fully supported by Viktoria from Beyond BA. She had the sense of what could still interest us and was always available with advice and support. Our focus was to experience the country the nature and the people up close and not to drive by in big groups from a distance or from a bus. Likewise, the care of the local guides as well as the many additional information about restaurants, bodegas and money exchange possibilities, which is very important in Argentina, helped us a lot and gave us much additional pleasure. Although we were faced with short-term flight schedule changes within the country, everything worked out excellently. We felt very well looked after and knew that we could contact Viktoria at any time by WhatsApp or mail. We thank Beyond BA and its team for this unforgettable trip. We will definitely come back one day.

Chile!
Santiago and his team (including his lovely family when I could here them on the line :-) ) were truly wonderful to work with. He listened to exactly what I was looking for in this trip with my adult son. I fully recommend Beyond BA Latam and Santiago specifically. Even with one item that I struggled with (COVID-19 Bar Code for a US citizen to enter Chile - it is simply not as popular or needed in the various states in the US) he was jumping to help me get cleared. We figured it out and I was able to get thru to enjoy the rest of our beautiful trip!

Patagonia was freezing but absolutely stunning! Atacama Desert was just as stunningly while different! And the city of Santiago was really neat to explore and enjoy when we had a few days there.

We only had 10 days and IF you can add more! I want more of Chile AND now Argentina! I'll be calling Santiago to help me plan that FOR SURE!

However do note that it is not easy to travel in and around Chile ALTHOUGH Santiago had our backs with everything. He is absolutely amazing and can't wait to use his immense expertise again when we go to Argentina! Gorgeous country, beautiful people, we are most definitely going back.

My partner and I have just returned from a 4 week trip throughout Chile and Argentina (Patagonia, Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires and Santiago) organised by Alvaro at Beyond BA. Alvaro and the team really exceeded our expectations both when planning and during our trip. Alvaro was incredibly accommodating of us when we were indecisive about what we wanted to see during the trip, he gave great suggestions of things to do and ways we could reconsider plans to ensure we kept costs within our desired budget. All of the activities and hotels we stayed at were of excellent quality. Alvaro was always very prompt and professional in his communication and we always felt at ease that we were being looked after. We had an amazing holiday and we would without a doubt recommend beyond BA to any family or friends travelling to the region.

Absolutely amazing trip with Beyond BA! Santiago did an outstanding job organizing our 3-weeks long journey in Argentina (BA, Patagonia, Iguazu, Salta). He patiently answered all our questions before and during the trip, as well as providing constant support while travelling. Without hesitation, we recommend anyone who wishes to visit Argentina to contact Santiago and his team. He will help you organize your trip and gives you insights from a true local. Truely we would not have enjoyed our honeymoon as much without him. Thank you again Santiago!

Each part of our trip was brilliant - impossible to choose 'the best'!!! Apart from us missing our first check-in (entirely our fault for not finding out how much time we needed to allow) all the connections & pick-ups worked like clockwork. The hotels were all welcoming & comfortable. Our guides were absolutely wonderful & we learned a lot from them. Most impressive was the land itself, showing us how alive it is and how unimportant we humans are in the grand scheme of things...
