    The weather angel blessed us with an absolutely perfect day. The walkways are fun and provide great vistas from many perspectives. The boat trip is anti climatic, but it is worth doing.

    Natalia was an excellent guide. Her narrative along the drive to the glacier was very informative and interesting. She was energetic and enthusiastic about her job and helping us know, experience and appreciate the area as much as possible. We enjoyed the sights and the whole day. ¬°Gracias!

    We got to experience all main angles of the Perito Moreno in various forms (by foot and also going up close to it on boat). Truly magical. We made friends with a very nice Canadian couple. Thank you for a great tour!

    Your driver and tour guide were courteous and knowledgeable . The hotel already had our information. They picked us up on time .the tour bus had more then 20 people in it but we did not feel crowded . It would have been nice for the company to include the park fee that should be paid in local currency. There was no lunch bag offered. The hotel sells those upon request and when you arrive at the park a sign tells you not to enter the dining room with your own food. It was windy and cold then it started to rain....good luck!!
    The boat was spacious , if you can be one of the first to get in to a window seat. Then an announcement was made in Spanish and everyone got up and rushed up to the upper deck. There was a lot more than 20 but enough room for everyone.it was cold, windy and the view simply spectacular! A view that gives glory to its Maker.
    Despite the few dings, it was a very good day! I do not regret tipping the driver and the tour guide

    We had a wonderful trip to the glacier. Florencia was a very knowledgeable and helpful guide. I'd recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area.

    The tour guide could speak in Spanish and English. She explained in both languages. The tour guide and the driver are very friendly and polite. The tour guide take good care of each members in the group. The walkway and the viewing platforms could let us have excellent close view to Perito Moreno glacier. Very good trip and we really enjoyed the amazing view. We would recommend this day trip!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our full day tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier. The guide was knowledgable and accommodating. The driver was skilled and safe. We like walking so we walked most all of the walkways taking in the many awesome views of the glacier. I'm glad we visited in April as I imagine it's very crowded in the park in the summer. The boat ride was fun, but a bit crowded and not entirely necessary given views available from walkways; would skip this portion of tour next time.
