Moderate hike is an understatement. The suggested mileage should include the additional 5 miles round-trip to trek from the parking lot to the trail head. Inspect your lunch items before you set out on the hike, and be prepared to supplement with your own preferences--every ounce matters in an 18 mile day, so only take what you'll want to eat. Make sure you take enough water. There may not be a place to refill on the trip. The restrooms cost money at the rest area / campsite halfway through the hike. The description says the limit is 5 people in a tour, and we felt weighted down with 7--not sure why we had additional people, but it was tough making it through the more difficult parts of the hike when we would lose momentum. Super long day, but worth it. A great way to see a ton of highlights in one day.

It was totally amazing, definitely recommend for you to do it. Well it was kinda moderate hike and some part was high, i would recommend to do some hiking trainning before hand, however the tour provided you with 2 poles so they help with your balance. Make sure you prepare for extra 2-3 kms once coming down to get to your car park i know when your legs were tired and relaxed and have to do a couple extra kms could be tiring. Bring some extra yummy food from home because the food they provided were not sufficient.
The group was small only 5 the guide John. He was a great guide very attentive, cheerful and caring. He kept checking our pace and how we were travelling, gave us some tips and suggestions, he was very knowleagable about the granite and mountains and told us about the how the mountains formed the way they are now. Absolutely Otra Vez!

DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR! The path is hard to miss and transport to the park is sufficient. The guide talked twice to us, left us behind, didn't provide additional information. Despite on time, he complained to the driver that my girlfriend stopped so often assuming that she didn't understand Spanish.

We decided to book this tour after researching numerous different options. It seemed like it would provide a challenging days walking aimed at those with a good level of fitness and would make the most of our one day in Torres del Paine. However we found the pace slow with many breaks taken, not always in the most scenic of spots which is an accomplishment in such a beautiful natural park! Our guide walked mainly right at the back of the group, sometimes on her own and spoke to us twice. The first time was to tell us the rough route and the second time was a quick explanation of who had first climber the towers. It would have been nice to have had more information on the local history, wildlife and plants which is what I would expect from a professional guide. We ended the trek feeling disappointed and as though we had paid for a transfer and for a lady to come for a walk with us in silence.

This hike is amazing! I highly recommend it. Make sure you bring layered clothing that you can easily remove as you will need less during certain parts.

Loved the hike even though it was slightly hard, the guide and driver were absolutely profesional and nice.
I would like to spend a little bit more time on Base Torres though.

Bring your pair of poles/sticks rented in the Puerto Natales square by 2000 chilean pesos , they have some you can borrow, but just 1 for some people. If you are an amateur hiker you will need it.

Although I found the trek tough going as I think you need a certain level of fitness for the one day trip, I enjoyed it. The guide who was provided to us from a local hostel was fantastic and had a lot of knowledge of the area and especially timings. Even when he received a message about my special lunch request on the day of our tour extremely late message, he went out of his way to make sure I had what ever I needed. A great day that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
