Amanda Gary

Adventurer Extraordinaire

To say Amanda's resume is varied would be understating things slightly. Unless, of course, you know someone else whose CV includes tango dancer, ski patroller, bed and breakfast proprietress, a stint in a lawyer’s office, Italian tutor, freelance writer, B&R Guide, and, briefly, a sandwich board-wearing empanada saleswoman. Such diversity has been a driving force in Amanda’s career and has translated into her work as a trip designer in Argentina, where she's also the owner/operator of the country's first martial arts school for women (did we forget to mention that one?).

Amanda's Trip Collection


Amanda went above and beyond for our first trip to Patagonia. We were nervous about the hiking at first, but she was terrific at putting our minds at ease and planning just the right amount of activity for us. Thank you so much!

What an incredible adventure! Thank you for planing the most amazing trip of our lives. Argentina had been on our bucket list for years, but this trip still managed to exceed our expectations.

— Frank Royea
