​Ursula Hosting, 2019

Argentina with ursula hosting

DEC 23 - JAN 06 

Hello Again Nicholas,

I have updated the initial proposal based on your feedback.  Please take a look and let me know what you think. 

This is still a living document, so we can add, remove, and edit it as much as necessary until you are fully satisfied. 

Summary

This is the list of services and activities I am recommending.  I can add or remove items as desired.

In this case,  I am using estimates for 5 star hotels in most cases because the majority of  our clients ask for these type of hotels, but we can adjust if you prefer smaller and cheaper places, perhaps private apartment,  or a private room in a guesthouse, etc. 

 

  • 14 Nights in Argentina/Brazil - These are the destinations we recommend if you want to spend half of your time in Argentina and the other half in Brazil. 

    • 4 nights in Mendoza - 4 star chic Hotel 

      • Hotel located in charming town, near wineries​

    • 4 nights in Buenos Aires (BA) - 5 star boutique hotel

      • Modern and chic hotel in trendy area of the city  ​

    • 6 nights in Rio - 5 star boutique hotel 

      • Modern hotel, beach front in Ipanema​

  • Flights 

    • Mendoza - Buenos Aires  (1.5 hr - Direct) - Premium Economy (Business not available)

    • Buenos Aires -  Rio De Janeiro (3 hrs - Direct) -  Business Class

  • Airport Transportation

    • Round trip shuttle in all destinations

  • Breakfast  ​​

    • Buenos hotel charges extra for this. I am including cost in estimate, but could remove if not desired. 

  • Activities/Experiences (Most of these are private activities, we can look into group ones if you preferred)

    • Mendoza

      • Wine Experience - Private guided experience visiting wineries and getting to  know one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world.  Transportation, lunch, and tastings included.

      • Hike - Guided private hike along side the beautiful Andes. Lakes, Mountains, and views for days! don't forget your camera this day.  

      • Note:I recommend not many scheduled activities here, and enjoy some free time exploring the town, near by wineries, and the local night life.  Play it by ear.

      • Never the less I can recommend and include more activities if you prefer having things planned in advance.  

  • Buenos Aires

    • History/Culture Walking Tour - Private guided walk of Telmo, The beautiful old town area of Buenos Aires  ​

    • City Tour -  Zona Norte  - Private guided walk of another part of the city. One of the most beautiful . and with more landmarks, Recoleta. Included tour of the Recoleta cemetery (Evita)​

    • ​Tango Experience - Dinner, show, and class. This is a VIP experience. Very Recommended. 

    • Street Art and Urban Experience - Explore another area of the city with an arty mindset.  Lunch, drinks, and snacks included. 

    • I can recommend and plan other activities, if you have something particular in mind.  For instance:

      • Bike tour of the Natural reserve within the city

      • Cooking class

      • Navigate in El Tigre (Delta of Parana River) - This is another great experience. It takes all day and can be private or in group.  

      • List of recommendations for things to do and places to visit during your visit will be included on the final plan. 

      • NOTE: We have a gay  night tour, but our guide will be on vacation those days and we can't host it. Nevertheless, we will share recommendations,​​

  •  Rio De Janeiro

    • New Years! I am thinking New Years in Rio. The city comes to life and parties like no other to celebrate. The hotel we have is in the middle of the action, and we can also  help  with plans for that night based on your preferences. 

    • Rio is a place full of options for things to do. I could recommend and organize some with . local guides if you tell me some of your interests and preferences: Gay nights out, Eco tourism,  Charming neighborhoods, Parks and museums, and more. 

    • Rio is also a place to relax at the  beach and make new friends.  You will be in the right place for this.

  • Full concierge services -  Before and throughout the trip (reservations, suggestions, etc)

    • Additional Activities - Help with additional activities you might be interested in while in any of the destinations.

    • Nights out/shows - Plan nights out, provide suggestions for bars and local night life, and more as requested. I will add names of gay  and gay friendly bars and clubs to the final plan. 

    • Lunch/Dinners -  Suggestions and reservations to some of the best restaurants in town, as desired. 

    • Transportation - I would help organize as needed.  

The Cost

The estimated cost of this package with everything outlined above included is:

 

  • $6399 (All tax and fees included) 

    • This is a busy time in Rio. 5 star boutique hotels in Ipanema are running out. We found a great options till available for 6 nights at this price. Others available  are higher. 

PLEASE NOTE:​

  • We can make changes to the package as desired, and price would be updated accordingly.

    • If you budget allows, I could recommend more fabulous options

    • If your budget is more limited, I could look for smaller and more economic options as well.

  • Our packages do not include insurance. I would recommend travel insurance since you will be doing a lot of physical activities. 

Let me know if there are any questions, comments, decisions.  Please remember this is a living document.  We can continue to add, remove, change, etc.  We'll tailor this until everyone is completely satisfied. 

THANK YOU
