Unfortunately Patagonia weather is unpredictable so we weren't able to see all the beautiful scenery. However, the tour itself is well-planned in terms of stops for food as well as scenic. Also, Claudio our driver and Pato our guide were really great! They really listened and customized the tour to the people on it. It was a great time!

A great tour, wonderful guide who accommodated us though we were the only English speakers in the group. A relaxing and informative way to see this beautiful area.

The trip through the 7 lake country with the snow capped Andes as a backdrop was spectacular. We had an awesome guide, and despite the fact my wife and I were the only English speaking people on the bus, our guide took the time to describe everything to us in English. A great trip at a reasonable price.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2016

A nice day trip with beautiful scenery but grossly overpriced for what is actually included. All the tour consists of is driving you around to the lakes to stop for 5 minutes for pictures and leaving you in San Martin for a few hours on your own. I sort of expected this from the description but thought the scenery would be so overwhelming as to justify the price - in my opinion it wasn't. If you are comfortable driving then hire a car or even consider hiring a taxi for the day. The description said 3hrs in San Martin and get back around 5pm. We only had 2hrs in San Martin and got back at 7pm. Also alot of the shops in San Martin are closed from about 1pm to 5pm anyway. While the lakes are beautiful to see the tour should have at least included lunch for the price. On a positive note, the guide spoke excellent English and was very good.
