Eurotur was established as a Destination Management Company in 1954 foreseeing the great tourist potential of South America, particularly Argentina, and is today one of the leading Argentine incoming tour operator. Later on, an office in Rio de Janeiro was established, developing classic and exotic tours to Argentina and Brazil (spinned off in 2009). Years later, we became specialists in South America. Since then we have promoted, operated and participated in the growth of this destination throughout the world. We have also been particularly interested in keeping an avant-garde position, not only by constantly proposing new ideas, tours and destinations, but also by introducing new technology.
Predicting the potential of our country in the events field, the Congresses and Conventions department was created (we have been one of ICCA’s founder partners) being Eurotur able to handle one of the first World Congresses in Argentina. The Incentives department also began to be developed at the same time.
Eurotur has also been one of the pioneers in the organization of tours to the mythic Patagonia. Off the beaten track expeditions were carried out through unknown territories giving as a result the implementation of the first tours to El Calafate and the first packages including the most important tourist centers in Patagonia: Peninsula Valdés, El Calafate and Ushuaia. Some years later the concept of “seat-in-coach tours with guaranteed departures” was introduced in order to get to know the immense Patagonia and its natural richness. Later on, Chile was introduced into these packages being Eurotur one of the pioneers in offering Torres del Paine National Park and the Chilean Patagonia. The introduction of the Argentine Northwest and Chilean North followed. This way, little by little, the number of destinations offered in Argentina grew allowing us to offer a great number of destinations and places completing almost the entire Argentine territory.
A decade ago, Eurotur created the Adventure and Expeditions department organizing from moderate trekking to demanding expeditions.
Finally, we are adapting to the trends of the new travel paradigm, where passengers are inquisitive, have lots of detailed information on the destination, the trips, the market players, researching rates extensively, topped with a lot of published misinformation and infomercial, thus demanding a high level of advice and expertise.
