This tour is very nice. You get to see the Perito Moreno really well and it's very special to hike a glacier.
I wouldn't recommend booking this tour through Viator though. You still have contact the local tour operator to confirm a few things, so you might as well book the tour with the local tour operator Hielo y aventura, which is about 50-100 cheaper per person. We booked it in advance because the local tour operator didn't accept Mastercard and we were afraid the tours would be fully booked but there's always a spot left.

Absolutely incredible trip! The highlight of my trip to Patagonia. Every staff member along the way was kind and just fantastic. The bus pick up came a bit late, but they had called my hotel ahead of time to alert me. The scenery was indescribable. I wish we could have spent more time on the walkway but agreed with the design of the tour to have more time on the actual glacier. The chocolate and whiskey at the end of the trip was a very nice touch. The hike does not require you to be in shape, although it does help as the climb can be steep at times. However, the crampons make the climb almost effortless. I read a review that said stop reading and reserve this tour. I listened, and I again pass that on to you!

Very unusual experience. The hike on the glacier was great. The later view from the observation deck was fantastic. Guides were great.

What an amazing experience. Breath taking at every moment. There is no more beautiful place in the world than the Perito Moreno Glacier. I wish I could capture the sounds of the glacier in my photos. A must for anyone visiting El Calafate. I still can't believe I actually hiked in the glacier. I'm not very fit and was worried but it was no problem. Tip: bring hiking boots and gloves as gym shoes hurt in crampons and gloves are required. The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly without getting in the way of a true experience. Would love a repeat of this tour!

Fantastic experience! Hiking on the glacier was easy and fun! The guides were knowledgeable and fun! Don and #39;t just go look at the glacier, hike it as well! It is worth the money and time!

OMG, must do! Simply just book it and don't read any other reviews. Only advice is to bring your own gloves which are required. Well worth it

Perito Merino glacier is a must see and if you want a very easy introduction to crampon walking on ice with good guides and much good humour and a whisky on the ice to finish this is the tour for you. We had a fun day with an extremely comfortable bus to get us there and back. The balcony walk to get the overview of the glacier and watch it crack and split if you're lucky was a lovely way to finish this trip too. Not too far from El Calafate. Highly efficient tour and great guide we hope Julio will come and visit us on his way to the glaciers in the south of New Zealand sometime

Spectacular glacier seen through a well-organized tour featuring trekking on the glacier, seeing the massive wall of ice from a boat, and hiking along the cliffs opposite the glacier in the National Park. Great guides, informative, fun and orchestrated like clockwork -- a very professional operation

A great tour! A must do if you are ever in Calafete. This was hands down the highlight of our trip to Argentina.

The Perito Moreno Glacier is like the Grand Canyon- photos don't do it justice. You have to experience it in person to fathom the size and beauty of it. Our guides were multilingual, really friendly, and highly expert. 1.5 hours walking the glacier was just right. At the end of the walk we were surprised with free whisky and alfajores, which was a really nice treat.

Absolutely spend the money and do this tour rather than just the boat ride! Trekking on the glacier was an amazing experience that you should NOT miss. The bus picked us up on time and we took 1.5 hrs to get to the glaciers. Entrance fee to the glacier is not included 260 pesos. We then took a boat to the glacier and got amazing pictures. Boat ride was about 20mins. Next we got fitted with crampons and off we went! Julio our guide gave us an intro to the glacier before we headed up. He gave history on the glaciers in the region and how to walk with crampons correctly up the glacier and down. He also gave safety instructions. At no time did I feel unsafe. We were on the ice 1.5-2hrs? We took lots of pics. You don't need any ice experience. If you can walk up a gentle hill you can do this! We took several breaks as we went up and down. After the ice trek, we had lunch, headed back to the boat and spent an hour at the balconies viewing the glacier.

Highly recommend this excursion if you're visiting El Cafate and the Perito Moreno glacier. The hike on the glacier is of low to moderate difficulty. Once you don the crampons and climb the icy mountain, you are rewarded with amazing sights including icy blue crevices and sinkholes, ice towers, and more.

Fantastic tour. Views were amazing, guide was fantastic. Tour went like clockwork. Lunch is not included so need to make sure you have time day before to buy food. Hotel drop off/pick up included. Hiking is not excessive but is definitely not for people who have mobility issues. A must-do.
