    We had an incredible time on this tour - a highlight of our Patagonia trip. We only had a few days there so a day trip was perfect. The day was long (but ample time to nap if you please) - but a must do!!! It was approx 5-6 hours in the car total over the course of the day. We got back to the city center around 9:00pm which is dinner time in El Calafate anyways so it worked out well.

    The tour guides were fantastic, spoke English well and were very helpful in answering questions throughout the day.

    We went to multiple places in Torres Del Paine and each was better than the previous.

    They lunch provided was not great - so I’d suggest bringing extra snacks for yourself.

    I suggest sneakers / hiking boots, and layers. Some places were cool while others were incredibly windy and cold.

    Overall, a PHENOMENAL, trip. Would love to go there again and stay longer.

    Loved the trip and our guides - everyone was polite and informative. We had sufficient number of stops (though perhaps include one short stop to take pictures of guanacas, which were everywhere along the road, just a few yards away from the road). We are discerning travelers and were wary of this upcoming day trip, but were happy to see how everything was smoothly organized. Lunches are OK, but you have a chance to bring your own food and also buy more food on the way back, at a local Chilean joint.

    We weren't impressed by this tour because of many reasons.
    - Way too much time on the bus. The short-cut on the unpaved road is a bone jarring, older rollercoaster-like drive. At times during the drive you are thrown off your seat by a few inches.
    - Most of the stories and explanations are offered in Spanish. English translation is bare minimum and more of an after thought.
    - Long lines and lot of time spent at the border crossings 2 while going and 2 while returning
    - The guide and the driver remind me of jaded folks who have spent way too much time of their lives herding people
    - Too many people on the bus 45 and only one door to get in and out. So if you're on the last row, you're out of luck. Bus is older, not super clean and not comfortable
    - Way too many stops. Get out of the bus, take a picture and get back in. Would have preferred fewer stops and more time hiking
    - Not enough time hiking and admiring the beautiful vistas in the park
    - No advanced notice to passengers to not bring fruits, cheese, meat etc. because Chilean border won't allow any of that.
    Overall, it is a lot of work for a couple of hours actually enjoying the hike and gorgeous views. For 600, we could have flown to Chile and had a better adventure.

    Our driver and guide were fantastic and went out of their way to make sure the trip was comfortable and enjoyable. Torres del Paine is an absolutely stunning park.

    Im giving this 4 stars because the bus trip was too long for me. The tour operator was 5 star. It was very windy the day we were there. The trail we were supposed to hike was closed for safety reasons. The guide made some phone calls and found another trail for us to hike.

    Torres del Paine is breathtakingly beautiful, and more impressive than you can ever imagine until you're there! Overall, an amazing day. However, be forewarned that there are no bathrooms on the bus, and no bathrooms available to tourists for 5 hour increments. The buses also don't have chargers, trash cans, etc. - plus they're not actually buses, but trucks, making for a very bumpy and uncomfortable 4 hour drive each way.

    Yes it was a lot of driving. Yes the border crossings took a long time. Yes it was a relatively short time in the park. But it was worth doing
    and I am glad we took the trip. Our guide was excellent..
