    The trip to Sierra Baguales was excellent, the whole crew was really super nice and took their time in explaining the history and geology of the place, especially regarding the fossils that are there in abundance, and some are old more than 60 million years, which is fascinating. Meanwhile, we saw a few significant birds, including the Condor, and the Black Swan, and also plants that are indigenous to the area, like the Yareta plant or the Calafate plant. We also saw some Guanacos, some were alive, and some were in skelleton form because the pumas ate them, so I got to see the place that is locally called the "Guanacos cemetary". I am so glad I did this tour, because the scenery is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and it's really worth every penny since we hiked almost half a day, and enjoyed the scenery and nature along the way. The time passed so quickly because the guides were really funny and positive and we had such a laugh. All in all,I recommend it to be an absolute must.

Very complete discovery of the famous Torres del Paine Park and especially of its main photo stops. The price / quality ratio is also excellent. The schedule was well respected and the information from the guide was interesting.

The guide, Juan, was prepared, spoke both English and Spanish well. Nice ride inside the park with stops in various Miradors. After lunch it is possible to take a short walk to Lake Gray.

In the end we went to the agency and changed the excursion to the trekking to Torres del Paine, which had been recommended and we loved it!
