Una visita inteligente y sensible por el pasado de El Calafate. Melody es una gran guía. Lo disfrute muchisimo.

Although the accessible area is fairly limited, it was interesting to learn and see the cave drawings. Additional city tour takes you to the local Museum where there is a much more detailed history of the area and it’s indigenous people.
