Scenery was breathtaking, and was fantastic to see such vast amounts of wildlife. Imagine it helped that we had such amazing weather. Really well run from start to finish.

Lived up to all my expectations, made seeing that part of the world much easier than doing it all by myself. Met great people, good food, and saw the marvels of the south.

I loved the tour! The experience was made extra fantastic by the great group of like-minded travelers, the awesome food, and the relatively worry-free logistics of transportation, activities, and dinners. I recommend this trip to anyone interested in strenuous outdoor activities. The friends we made along the way are sure to be life-long friends!

We did three tours with G Adventures while travelling in South America and this was by far the best. Credit must be given to Christian for this who made it adventurous, enjoyable and entertaining throughout.

This tour was amazing - The group we had was such a diverse, but at the same time fantastic mix of people that was made even better by J, the tour leader who did an absolutely AMAZING job throughout the trip. The sites and sounds of Patagonia are something which this tour encompassed fully and I would genuinely not change a thing.
