Unfortunately Patagonia weather is unpredictable so we weren't able to see all the beautiful scenery. However, the tour itself is well-planned in terms of stops for food as well as scenic. Also, Claudio our driver and Pato our guide were really great! They really listened and customized the tour to the people on it. It was a great time!
A great tour, wonderful guide who accommodated us though we were the only English speakers in the group. A relaxing and informative way to see this beautiful area.
Stunning scenery, informative guides
The trip through the 7 lake country with the snow capped Andes as a backdrop was spectacular. We had an awesome guide, and despite the fact my wife and I were the only English speaking people on the bus, our guide took the time to describe everything to us in English. A great trip at a reasonable price.
Well organized excursion and the stop over at San Martin is really very nice. I enjoyed it most.
