Excellent and interesting tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very enjoyable day trip. Unfortunately at this time of year due to the lack of water, the falls were not as spectacular as they can be, but still worth seeing. Boat trip on the emerald lake was superb. Volcano was amazing and lunch halfway up superb. The owners prepared everything fresh and were very hospitable. Brilliant trip.

A quasi local guide with reflected insight into the local situation of the population. Despite obviously good connections to the local organizers, there was no impression of the biting. Guide was very knowledgeable. Well-coordinated team of driver and guide (photo stops etc.). Generally recommended and worth the money.

Great tour with great locations for a great price. Our guide Dennis was fluent in Spanish and English and was very informative. Great value with option to pay for more things (boat trip, chair lift etc) as suits your needs and/or budget. Lake and mountain views were outstanding - recommended.

On the site they ask us to go to another hotel because the holiday in express did not make the transfer, this needs to be modified /

Had a great guide Mario. This is a wonderful part of Patagonia In Chile. It’s a must do
