A 360km (return) drive through a scenic route with multiple stops on the way to take photos. You also get to spend some time in two small mountain towns. Friendly and chatty guide and a driver with a great taste in music. English and Spanish spoken.
This is just a coach/minibus trip stopping off at nice viewpoints of the 7 lakes, plus a couple of hours for lunch and a stroll in San Martin. So, you're not signing up for anything especially exciting or different. However, if you've come halfway across the world to visit this area (as we had), it's nice to take the opportunity to see a bit more of the surrounding area, as it is very beautiful scenery.
Vivienne (guide) and Manuel (driver), were great people to spend the day with, being relaxed and humourous, but also offering a lot of information.
The only thing we would have changed is the coffee stop at an isolated farmhouse, as this place was just a bit too rustic for us and we did not eat or drink anything, fearing that the place might not be sanitised enough. We would have preferred a coffee stop at a nice-looking town with decent restaurants which we had passed through about 10 mins before.
But, overall, and in spite of poor weather, we enjoyed the day out and were glad we went.

, Jan 2020
I wouldn’t go out of your way to do this trip. It doesn’t appear to be very well organized. Lots of starts and stops. Bring a lunch because the lunch stop doesn’t happen till 2:30-3pm.

This was the first time me and my girlfriend had done kayaking (at least for a very long time) so were a little bit anxious about the trip initially but Juan did an amazing job finding the perfect lake for us to get into it and feel comfortable. He tailors each tour to the kayaking experience of the clients that day so each tour can be different but always fun!
He gave us simple but useful instruction so that by the end of the day we improved immensely.
The lunch was in the most beautiful spot you could imagine on a beach at the side of the lake looking at the surrounding mountains, and the food was traditional Argentinan picnic style (empanadas, vegetable quiche, red wine).
After we returned back Juan offered to take us around a short circuit of Bariloche (as we still had some time) in the car and we stopped off for a beer at a bar with more excellent views before returning to the hotel.
I would highly recommend this tour, Juan is a really nice relaxed guy to spend a day with and I can’t think of any more picturesque places to kayak!
