What people are saying about San Carlos de Bariloche

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 2 reviews

Matti was the best guide and the most helpful for me. Being able to articulate everything in English and give me a personal run down of what he was telling the rest of the group in Spanish. He made the tour even more better than it was. The route is beautiful and there are multiple opportunities to stop and see the lakes and their beauty.

Everything super good, except for the return ... the bus was exaggeratedly slow as to "make time" and comply with the schedule. Yes, instead of saying that the tour lasts 9 hours, they tell me 7, I still pay the same amount

There were only two of us English speaking customers on a boat of 240, but the tour operator was kind enough to give us own guide. We had our own private tour.

Gorgeous landscape, excellent guide (Jatsy), informative and fun. The walk in the Bosque dos Arrayanes became something superfluous.

Excellent, pick up on time at the place indicated at the time of booking. The tour as described.
