Help Me Plan a Trip to Argentina For You

Have you ever wanted to go to Argentina, watch a live tango show, visit the Iguazu Falls (remember the movie “The Mission”?), walk the vineyards in Mendoza, eat an Argentinean style barbeque (asado), and enjoy a big Malbec with your asado?  I’ve been to Argentina, and had a chance to do many of these things.  Argentina is a big, beautiful country.  Buenos Aires has been coined the most European city of South America.  With it’s French architecture, and fashion, I understand why.

I am planning a ~7 day tour of Argentina, and want to make it something that excites you and makes you daydream about it during your workday.

What I need is your feedback of the items you would like to see, plus ideas of places to see, or things you would like to do that are not on my list.
