Thomas was an amazing guide and very entertaining. The tour is recomandable for a half day in El Calafate. The tour is a little rocky and the car not the newest, but it's also a crossroad trip. Met great people, the meal in the small shelter was comfortable and delicious even for vegetarians.

We did the cave tour with my husband and 2 friends for lunch. Booking was a breeze and Mateo picked us up right on time. We had the whole car to ourselves, which was fantastic. Mateo has a wealth of knowledge and kept us entertained the whole drive with history of Argentina and answering our questions. The caves were impressive... More

We booked this through our hotel (South B&B), and I must say it was one of the best excursions we had in Patagonia. We were really lucky and ended up being the only 2 guests going so we had the tour guide, Matteo, all for ourselves. He was great, easy going, friendly and very knowledgeable. On the top of the...

We really enjoyed this trip. I probably wouldn't book it before arriving as it can easily be booked locally and it is best to book the day before-when you can check the weather forecast. It wouldn't be much fun on a wet or very cloudy day. The Land Rover goes up into the mountains near El Calafate. We were lucky... More

My first safari experience and I enjoyed it. Our guide was Matteo, he was great! He explained the vegetations and animals, and also rocks! We were really lucky to see snow in the estancia in summer time (January)! We saw rabbits, fox, birds, horses, cows, sheep and guanaco; and most of them ran/flew quite close to our car. Also, we...

Before booking this tour of the caves (including dinner in a cave) we could not find any reviews as this tour and company is fairly new. So we took a chance and very glad we did! Matteo was our guide and he was awesome. We were picked up at our hotel in a 4WD vehicle for 6 at 6:00 p.m.... More

Just rent a car and drive between El Calafate and El Chalten or Los Glaciers National Park and you will see Llamas, Ostrich, Fox. Animals are very easy to spot and stop and take a picture of. No danger.
