What people are saying about San Carlos de Bariloche

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.

I had an accident with my cell phone and I missed the group, but they took a driver just to pick me up. The guide Joaquín is excellent, super helpful, he brought us historical, political and geographical information about the place and even other attractions. I wish all companies were like that! Congratulations, folks!

The guide was amazing! We had a setback getting to our meeting point and the company communicated with us and waited for us! The guide was fun, informative and very friendly! We had so much fun!!

The trip was long, 11 hours long, but the bus was 30 minutes late. The tour guide to get to know a lot about the region. I found the stop in Vila Angustura very quick.

it was really worth it, beautiful places, Damián is an excellent guide!
