Activity was great as was guide (Juan), very helpful and knowledgeable. The pictures of the activity advertised were a little misleading as we do not go into a giant ice cave but we did get to go into a small moulin and experience it. Would do again!

This was an amazing tour! One of the highlights of our trip. The caves were closed but that meant we got more time to hike closer to the glacier. Gorgeous views, a knowledgeable guide, and an overall very unique experience. Could not experience a glacier in the same way without a tour like this. Definitely recommend this as a must book!!

Our guide was fabulous and very patient with kids. He let us take our time at the cave and on the glacier to take photos and explore. The ice cave itself was really small, but beautiful. I would have rated this excellent had there been more to the cave.
