Tierra del Fuego National Park & The End of the World Train
- Transportation included
- Duration: 5 hours
We were picked up from our hotel, the contact and pick times were clearly communicated. We thought we paid for a train tour and the park tour but that was not the case. We had to pay extra at the train in local currency. The train had an automated tour with earbuds. I thought it was well done, the scenery was beautiful. There is a stop and you can walk up a series of staircases to a waterfall & buy pictures. It’s touristy & we loved the picture of the prisoner trying to steal a back pack! The tour guide, Maria, was amazing. She worked hard townspeople pictures, answer questions and share info. The first stop in the park is the post office. It was closed and as we pulled away it opened. That is why it’s not 5 stars & the train tickets being extra. There was time at each stop to explore and walk around. Nice overview!
We enjoyed the park and the train ride with the accompanying commentary about the activities of the convicts and the early beginnings of the park. We did not enjoy being questioned as to whether or not we had paid for the train when our information said we had. There has to be better communication between the Tour sellers And the service that runs them. Suppliers of the tours need to make it known from the very outset what the additional fees will be and how much they are and how they can be paid ( credit or cash).
Really enjoyable half day tour. Pick up on time. Very friendly guides. Nice easy walks in the park, all at a gentle pace. Guide was informative. Lovely scenery. I thought the lunchtime food was ok, husband really enjoyed it. The wine flowed. It was a great trip in the Tierra del Fuego.
Our excursion to Tierra del Fuego National Park was fantastic from beginning to end! Flor, our guide, was delightful, multilingual and very knowledgeable. Trip exceeded our expectations.
I loved that we were a small group of 7 and on trails that were pretty much to ourselves! Walking thru a Patagonia forest on a gorgeous day was a dream come true!
