For anyone traveling to southern Patagonia, seeing the Perito Moreno Glacier is a must!

This tour was excellent with consistent accommodation throughout the trip. I had hostel private rooms and they were all fine for me and close enough to walk to the main parts of town. The only thing that was missing on the trip for me was a trip to see the penguins in Ushuaia but otherwise it was a very well designed trip and I was not disappointed! The tour I was on was booked via SAStravel.

Excellent experience. Patagonia is an amazingly beautiful place and this tour gave us a great mix of locations and activities.

We choose the b and b level accommodation and were impressed with where we staying

The self guided nature of the tour is refreshing as you are not tied to a tour group

I booked this trip for my wife and I, and chose the comfort accommodation. The tour is actually arranged by a local tour operator and Viator do little more than collect your money. Our tour arranger was Lucía Echenique and I had difficulty getting a response via phone and email initially on tour details. This made it difficult to make fine tuning on the arrangements. That being said we had the trip of a lifetime. The accommodation was adequate but the staff in every hotel were very helpful and welcoming. Calafate is a great town. Art Indio is a great place to change s and you will get your first opportunities to gorge on the excellent pastries that Patagonia seems to have in abundance. The Perito Merino glacier is spectacular and you will be astounded by the noise it makes round the clock. You are practically guaranteed to see a piece break off and fall into the lake. Danielle was our guide who provided an informative and entertaining commentary on the way there and back.
In Chalten we stayed at the Senderos, you will see reviews that the rooms are too hot and we had a similar experience initially.The overheating is due to the effect of the sun, Sophia owner was very considerate and provided a fan that dealt with the problem by sleep time. The hiking here in Chalten is every bit as advertised, however, time and distance estimates can be a little wild. If taking Laguna de los tres trail make sure to leave early in the day to ensure you return before dark.
Puerto Natales is where we discovered that Patagonians eat late and we could find nowhere open before 7pm. Navigating the border with Chile took a significant amount of the first day as we queued first to get out of Argentina and then to get into Chile. Dogs sniff all luggage looking for prohibited foodstuff.
The Torres Del Paine Tour is excellent but be prepared for the wind that brings gusts strong enough to knock you off your feet. There is a also the cave of the Milodon.

Considering that I am using a suitcase on rollers and not a backpack, the Hostel del Glaciar Libertador was not within walking distance. The hostel was fine. You just don't want a room near the breakfast area, which gets traffic evening and a.m.

Very bad hotel in Ushuaia. No breakfast provided, smelly and dirty room and the entire hostel. Won't recommend it to anyone.
No clear explanation from the travel agency about the entire tour. Missing maps of hostels.

My husband and I were very disappointed in this and tour and; and did not have a very good customer service experience. Unfortunately the character limit here keeps me from providing detail, but ultimately this was not what I would call a tour and you should just arrange it yourself or join a real tour.
