Very informative. Highly recommend
Mar 2020
The bus picked us up from our hotel with about 20 other people. Note that the time quoted for bus arrival is really just the start time to commute from hotel to hotel. You will need cash for the park entrance fee -- it is not included in the price you pay online. The trek itself was easy (we're in our 30s and not overweight). The guides were knowledgeable and conduct tours in english or spanish as needed. Save photos on the boat tour for the way back from the glacier. Make sure on the catwalks that you just sit and watch (and listen!) for the glacier to calve. Amazing experience. In general, this was a really cool tour. Worth the money, as it is a once in a lifetime type of experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Awesome experience
Jan 2020 • Friends
The tour was really a great experience of the glacier!
Amazing views of the cracks with the different blue shades and the surrounding scenery was really awesome!
The tour started later than it was supposed to, with no explanation about it.
The bus is comfortable and it stops first at the walkways, (it was well organized from there on)!after that it goes to the boat to get to the other side of the lake, where the trekking will take place.
The trekking on the glacier it was a lot easier than I thought it would be, based on previous reviews.
It was a great experience and I had a lot of fun!
Towards the end, it’s offered “whiskey on glacier rocks”, glacier water and chocolate.
I wish we could have more time to explore and take pictures... I felt rushed.
Overall totally worth it!

Great views in a single file line
Perito Moreno is amazing and a must see. I enjoyed the additional views we gained from the boat ride to the mini trekking as well as while trekking. I felt like the group
was a bit to large for this activity because it felt like we had to stay in a single file line too much. Just not my way of hiking/exploring. But I understand it’s necessary for safety, but it does take some of the fun away. It’s still worth it though, so I would recommend it.

Perito Moreno
From start to finish we were impressed with this tour which was well organised and ran smoothly.

The scenery was breathtaking and it was a truly unforgettable experience.

The small size of the group allowed for a more immersive adventure & I would not hesitate to recommend this trip or Tangol.

Amazing, once in a life time experience!
Sep 2018 • Family
From the moment we entered the national park, this trip with my father and sister became an unforgettable experience.

The boat ride, surrounded by icebergs, with a view of the Perito Moreno, was breathtaking.

Our guide was excellent, he helped us strap on our crampons, and the hike on the glacier was incredible and perfect for beginner hikers.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone that comes to Argentina, it's a must!

Not exactly as advertised
Feb 2018 • Solo
I enjoyed it a lot but was disappointed that the ferry didn’t take us along the face of the glacier, as expected. The ferry dropped us off and picked us up at the edge of the glacier and it would have added only another ten minutes or so take us along the face, as advertised.

Dear Michelle, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry about your misunderstanding. As advertised, the boat goes directly across the lake to the other shore in order to start the minitreking over the glacier. You can watch the walls of the glacier at end of the tour from the pasarelas, when you have some free time for that, before returning back to El Calafate. Please feel free to contact us for further information. Kind regards.
