Excellent guide and driver. Very well organized. All adults and nice people on the mini-van, always on time. Naza, the guide was very nice and provided very good information about the glaciers and truly seemed to care about us. The driver, JuanMa, stopped when he saw a black eagle on the road so that we could take pictures. He also pointed out a view of the Torres del Paine on the road to Perito was a beautiful sunny day. The boat ride to the other side of the glacier was also nice, on the smaller boat, with less crowds.

A good experience if you aren’t planning on doing the Moreno ice trek. We did both and feel that the cruise was too long and confined. We would have preferred spending an extra day in Chalten. Boats are restricted from getting within 5km or so from the Upsala glacier and not worth the stop in my opinion. Spegazzini was ok and the perspective from up close at Moreno was interesting but it takes so long to get between them all. The Lago views are spectacular though. The tour took about 9 hours without transfers to Calafate.

Only weather was unfavourable up to mid morning. Excellent, professional and very kind guides. The set of glaciers and surrounding peaks is obviously a Nature marvel even if this is worldwide known. Onbord staff also very kind. This excursion in the right way to complete the Perito Moreno tour after trekking on ice with crampons (no mountaineering skill is really needed) and a slow walk without being in a hurry all along the Pasarelas viewpoints system.

Well organised, pick up and drop back to hotel. Informative guide (spoke good English). Fantastic experience seeing this gigantic glacier up close , both on boat and from walkway! Just a note, excursion called trip with ‘‘optional boat safari’ - wrongly and perhaps stupidly I assumed this was included in the price, as no extra cost was mentioned. We had in fact to pay an extra 1000 pesos (about £12.50) each to go on the boat - but well worth it!

What a great day out, a must if you come to El Calafate, the who experience is worth every penny. From pick up first thing in the morning to return, they are first class. Guides in English and Spanish, and the lunch is also very good. I can’t praise this company enough, thanks for a memory that will last a lifetime, and memories are what life is all about!!
