The trip is a little long, but we make a few stops along the way. The landscape is beautiful and the promenade is crowned with the beautiful view of Lake Puelo. The little town of El Bolsón is beautiful and has recently been renovated. A very pleasant day is spent on this tour, which can also be done by people with low mobility, since it is not necessary to walk a lot.

Travelling through the streets and restaurants/stores of San Carlos de Bariloche sampling everything from empanadas to chocolate covered raspberries during a thunderstorm on January 1, 2020 was most memorable!! I feel like I got to know more about this city through this food tour.

My husband and I enjoyed interacting with the local guide and a couple from Germany. Despite a thunderstorm we proceeded with umbrellas in hand. We enjoyed the food and the company as well as the knowledge that was shared.

It turned out to be an unforgettable trip. The atmosphere and vision of the place was exciting. A place worth visiting again.
