What an exciting day. We took the 8 in 1 full day tour, and it was so much fun. Our guide and driver, Jesus and Jose were great and helped to make the day fun and complete. We loved every single thing we did on this tour and would recommend anyone to jump at the chance to experience this tour.

Jesus and his driver deserve two big thumbs up and more for their wonderful tour. Highly recommend these dedicated and caring guys. If your cruise ship has docked in Punta Arenas and you are looking to book a tour, i highly recommend an 8 hour excursion with them. Joe's river boat experience was awesome! They really made our short visit... More

We booked this tour independently because (1) it was much less expensive than comparable Holland America Cruise Line tours, and (2) it has much better reviews. We definitely have no regrets. Everyone connected with this tour that we encountered was excellent. Jesus, who seemed to be the tour leader and who served as the guide on our van, was very... More

We had booked this from home a couple of months before we left, via the internet and were delighted to find it all worked out so smoothly. Jesus was on the wharf just as I was told he would be, holding a sign with our name. We were the only people going on this tour and it still ran, with... More

This tour was AWESOME! The guide was very knowledgeable, personable, funny and caring. The way they had us interact with the white faced monkeys, who are sooooo cute, was great. They ran across our arms and shoulders, sat on our heads, etc., and were very gentle. Then we got to the boat ride part of the tour with a different... More

Jesus provided us with a wonderful experience of the area, whether floating down the canals, visiting the banana plantation, or just hunting for birds, frogs, monkeys, and sloths as we drove through the area. It's clear that he is very passionate and knowledgeable about his homeland. It was one of our best tours off a cruise ship.
