There are no impossible obstacles; there are only stronger and weaker wills.
Julio Verne

It was difficult to finish this article in moments of such political sensitivity as those that were experienced this week in Buenos Aires, where the country that represents freedom of expression in South America, confronted its democracy and fully exercised its right to be heard. And it seems that this year, this subcontinent wanted to make itself heard in the world and to make our culture be valued and respected not only by the foreigner but also from within us, from the singularity and the difference of each country, from what unites us and what differentiates us.

When we began 9 years ago with our first website of tours in Buenos Aires, with less social networks and less digital media, we had to explain in several occasions some cultural patterns to our clients in Argentina, with the sole purpose of excusing ourselves from some practices that affected their travel plans. Our clients ended up satisfied – or less frustrated – when facing that this country has a different reality than theirs and that a single traveler cannot change a whole country, so there is no other than to embrace this difference.

A couple of years after, we launched our Rio de Janeiro website. The first on offering online booking of tours and cultural experiences in the city. I will never forget the American client who, frustrated by the multiple changes caused by the visit of Pope Francis, complained astonished that the most traditional tourist destination in Brazil (and probably South America), organizing superb events such as the Rio Carnival and having been chosen to host the FIFA World Cup final match and subsequently the Olympics, was unable to foresee logistical incidents.  We wondered how to explain to the client about this social code called jeito carioca, a cultural behavior that defines Rio de Janeiro inhabitants and obviously we can not change. But perhaps, he went to the beach to drink a coco gelado (iced cocnut) or a choppe (beer) in posto 9 and that same jeito carioca saved him from returning home with a distaste provoked by a classic cultural shock.

We could continue telling cultural anecdotes like these, of customers from all over the world having Daytours4u experiences from San Andrés to Ushuaia, that transcend this beautiful continent full of energy, good vibes, skilled, hardworking and honest people, so different and yet so similar, with a culture enriched by immigration and miscegenation, an indigenous heritage that we still need to recognize with pride and appreciation an that completes the picture of our idiosyncrasy, the same we want to transmit through what we call the experience of traveling through South America.

That same experience acquired when you live the life, took us through difficult times and some tense situations this year. Although politics and the world economy suffered setbacks, everything seems to be lived in a more passionate way here. While Colombia took wing signing a long-debated and exhausting peace agreement, Venezuela suffered its own exodus while its neighbours prepared to welcome hundreds of citizens who had left their homes; Uruguay faced with conviction the risks and barriers of progressive measures like the regulation of Cannabis, Brazil exploded the bubble generated by two massive international events in the midst of a painful atmosphere of political tension for society; and Argentina, the ever vibrant queen of the South, shuddered with economic and political changes that wallowed all spheres of society.

Regardless of the situation, we continued working alongside travel agents, tour operators and influencers, with the same humility and resilience, to serve and to inspire those travelers from all over the world walking through our cities, uncovering our natural landscapes, admiring the exuberant beauty and probably feeling amazed and a little confused by the dichotomy of our discomfort and happiness, lack and fullness, kindness and indifference in which we live day by day. To make of every encounter between two cultures, a disruption of the stereotypes in a way that no traveler will return home with the same mentality as when he left.

Citing again the visionary Jules Verne -probably the first experiences specialist known- in his extraordinary travel books, he expressed the idea that each journey is an adventure in which its protagonists must be marked by courage, courage necessary to keep going in the face of adversity and the ability to solve any situation that comes their way. But this is not done alone, rather than in the company of other temporary or permanent, traveling companions and everyone that intervened or helped when it was needed.

In 2017, South Americans demonstrate courage and during this year’s life journey, we also prove that being together makes us stronger.  This was our trip life journey, an intensive training for what is about to come in 2018, an outspread South American travel experience under the brand name Daytours4u, aimed to integrate all these cultural values together thanks to that which we were able to keep afloat.

Thanks to that invaluable human talent that accompanies us, to the operators that walked alongside us and to the clients who place their trust in our work, we were able to end this year with not only one but many adventures that made us stronger, more adult-like, with more desire to undertake new challenges and, above all, more convinced that your next travel destination has to be in South America.

Happy 2018 and happy travels!

New image, better experiences – this is the mantra under which Daytours4u has revamped the homepages of its brands, Argentina4u, Bsas4u, Rdj4u, and Colombia4u, creating innovative tour categories and inventive pages that afford readers an improved search experience adjusted to their interests and expectations.

With the arrival of summer in South America, wonderful special offers on Argentina4u and Rdj4u can be enjoyed alongside a collection of sports and adventure activities that are simply perfect for this time of year. For those of you travelling to Colombia, you simply cannot miss the incredible excursions offered in the enchanting Caribbean and one of our 19 tours that highlight why this country is the very definition of Magical Realism.

Patagonia is one of South America’s biggest draws during this peak season, particularly for outdoor enthusiasts and intrepid travellers looking to bask in the beauty of spellbinding landscapes. Argentina4u’s tour catalogue can bring this region’s wonders into focus. If you don’t fancy the lower temperatures down south, then you can also find, in our newly-conceived page, Things We Love, a collection of fabulous day trips in and around Iguazu, breathtaking Salta, and the wine haven of Mendoza.

As for the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires: it is a city that needs no introduction. A place that continues to enchant tourists from around the world with its bohemian charm and eclectic attractions; an allure that we have illuminated in our selection of 17 Ways to Embrace the Porteño Lifestyle. We also know that Buenos Aires is renowned for its culinary delights, and so to help you sample all the flavours of the city, our local travel experts have put together Bon Vivant, a selection of the best food and wine tours available across the city.

In Rio de Janeiro – Carnival season is once again upon us, and Rdj4u is offering tickets to the Special Group parades and samba school rehearsals. Similarly, readers and customers will find a new collection on the homepage dedicated to classic tours that take in the iconic landmarks of the city, great options for travellers looking to uncover the wonders of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Tijuca Rainforest, and Ilha Grande.

With this remodeling, Daytours4u reaffirms its aim of adapting to the needs and desires of the modern traveller with an eye on exploring the diversity and culture of South America. As well as strengthening the brand image and the user experience of the sites, our customers can continue to count on the best service and unrivalled selection of tours and activities in the region.

Chile4u: The New Website of Daytours4u http://www.daytours4u.com/en/chile4u/chile4u-the-new-website-of-daytours4u/ Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:10:34 +0000 http://www.daytours4u.com/en/?p=10842 Daytours4u presents its new website: Chile4u – a safe and easy to navigate online booking platform offering the best tours and activities in Chile.

The Daytours4u family continues to grow and afford world explorers the opportunity to fulfill their dream of travelling through South America. The site of Chile4u has recently been added to the catalogue – a simple and easy to navigate booking platform that offers the best tours and activities in this long, impossibly thin stretch of land perched on the continent’s Pacific coast.

The catalogue of Chile4u includes wonderful day tours to Valparaíso / Photo by Daytours4u

Deserts, beaches, lakes, volcanoes, and the mesmerising Patagonian steppe together make Chile a unique destination in South America, and Chile4u provides travellers with a chance to experience it all.

The first thing you will see on the new website is City Tours around Santiago de Chile; from classic walking tours to more such authentic options as the B Side Tour of Santiago which takes in a number of quirky bars and other unusual attractions. You also have a selection of fabulous Bike Tours to choose from, all of which are great options in the Chilean capital since the climate and geography are perfect for endless cycling with bountiful enchanting vistas.

Just outside the city, it is the Wine Tours that take centre stage, and Chile4u has tours to only the most exquisite vineyards in the region. Tours to the Concha y Toro, Cousiño Macul, and Undurraga wineries can be found as well as a wonderful full-day excursion along the Casablanca Valley Wine Route.

Move westwards to the Central Coast and Chile4u has in its catalogue tours to, and around, eclectic Valparaíso and beautiful Viña del Mar. For those who enjoy cultural outings and the beauty of coastal cities, visiting these colourful destinations is simply a must, the former home to La Sebastiana, one of the houses of Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, and the latter home to gorgeous beaches aplenty.

EXCURSIONS FROM NORTH TO SOUTH

For all you intrepid travellers, the Chile4u collection also takes in the spellbinding Atacama Desert, home to breathtaking geysers, stunning valleys, and glistening lagoons. It is no wonder that Lonely Planet included this place in their list of top 10 regions to visit.

At the other end of the country – the southernmost frontier of the Americas – you will find magical Chilean Patagonia; a place where tours to Torres del Paine National Park, and the glaciers found within, are the stuff of the imagination. With the country recently being named a world leader in adventure tourism at the World Travel Awards, and money continuing to be poured into the tourism sector, now is the time to visit.

. . .

The reasons to visit Chile are many. That is exactly why the Daytours4u family is extending its horizons with this new website, continuing with the aim to become a reference for everyone visiting South America. Chile4u joins Argentina4u, Bsas4u, Rdj4u, Saopaulo4u, Uruguay4u and Colombia4u in offering a wide range of tourist activities complete with unrivalled customer service provided by local insiders.

                              Come view our first Tango Show for the Queer community by BSAS4u

Buenos Aires, 15th JulyBsas4u is excited to announce that for the first time ever, we are launching our very own Tango Pride show. While Bsas4u has always been all-inclusive, we are now stepping forward to represent those that traditional travel agencies often neglect. The travel industry has an alarmingly low rate of representation for LGBTQIA individuals, especially in shows that they themselves have produced.

Buenos Aires is a city enraptured by nostalgia. With our cobblestoned streets, beautiful cathedrals, and history woven into each architectural wonder, it’s no surprise that Argentinians have a thing for the past. History doesn’t always need to come in the form of a physical structure, however. Years from now when Argentinians look to bygone times, we want them to think fondly of how progressive we, as a people, became. Buenos Aires has a wealth of Tango activities available throughout the city, but many don’t meet expectations of being inclusive. While the city has plenty of Queer activities and meeting places, our Tango Pride is the only show for travellers wanting to experience an intimate and professional tango performance, in a welcoming atmosphere that will make them feel at home.

We take our customers into the utmost consideration and do everything we can to offer them the best possible experience they can have. Exclusive booking for this event is available only through Bsas4u, in collaboration with We are Tango.

Tango Pride Show Details:

  • Day and Time: Wednesday, from July 27 7:30 p.m.
  • Duration : about three hours.
  • Important note : The transfer to the venue of the show is not included . Food and drinks are optional.
    • Tango show without food : includes front row seats to enjoy the show , welcome drink, unlimited soft drinks and water, tango class .
      Retail value : USD $ 99
    • Tango show with food : includes all the above plus empanada-tasting (Regional empanadas from Salta, Tucuman, Patagonia, and Mendoza) and unlimited drinks
      Retail value : USD $ 120

Come and experience an innovative gay tango spectacle in Buenos Aires. Tango Pride is a fabulous show about history, discovery, and freedom. Book online now with bsas4u.
