ARGENTINA GOLF, WINE and IGUAZU FALLS TOUR

I am very excited to host this amazing tour to one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It has been on my bucket list for several years. The golf courses we have chosen are the best in the area and we have combined this with some beautiful hotels and some great sightseeing including a visit to the world-renowned Iguazu Falls.

Argentina is known for its food and wine so we will spend a day touring two of the best wineries in the Mendoza area and will have plenty of evenings enjoying fun times at some of the best restaurants in the country. I am told the steak is to die for!

I am sure Argentina is a country that your non-golfing partner will want to accompany you so we have built in some extraordinary day tours for them including a trip to the Andes Mountains.

The tour includes 6 games of golf as well day tours to the Wineries and the Iguazu Falls. If you have time before or after the tour we can help you with some additional destinations to make the most of your time in South America. We are expecting this tour to sell out quickly so I hope you can join me on this wonderful tour.
