Just back from 5 weeks in Argentina, Chile and Patagonia which is why this is a little belated, but of the many wonderful experiences in these three places, I have to say that the Safari Experience with Manu ranks very highly. He was a great guide and really interesting about the past history of Patagonia and the recent and present... More

Fortunately I had the chance to travel to many places around the world but, for sure, I won’t forget this spectacular experience surrounded by a singular geography and great wildlife. This 5 hours tour will take you to a peaceful land with hills and rocks, exciting narrow roads, flowers, condors, eagles, hares, guanacos, little birds, waterfalls and wonderful views including...

Thank you for the amazing experience on this safari. Not a typical your. More like visiting with local friends. Allows you to feel the locals' life and have dinner in a beautiful natural setting.

This is a very nice trip to an estancia outside Calafate where you will likely see guanacos, condors, rheas and other native animals in a very peaceful setting. You won't see many other people. Our handsome young guide, Manu, had a lot of local knowledge, was very friendly and is also a great cook. A definite highlight of my time... More

Julian was a wonderful tour guide! We saw the beautiful landscape and enjoyed learning a great deal about the region. The dinner was homemade and delicious! There was also plenty of wine to enjoy! All in all it was a fun and interesting evening - arguably the most authentic tour experience we had in the area, since it provided a... More

Wife and I took this tour in mid December. We were picked up bright and early one morning in an old but characterful Land Rover. Our guide was Manuel, who was very knowledgeable, personable and friendly. The tour was very informative with frequent breaks around points of interest, and the drive was very beautiful. Manuel was very accommodating with my... More

A unique chance to visit a real Estancia in total freedom, led by the owner Julián in a 4x4 trip. We had the chance to discover a lot of secrets regarding the wildlife, the nature, the history and - why not - the essence of these place. We also learned how to make a good mate, and we enjoyed a...

This review is long overdue, as we had our tour with Teo last December, but it was a highlight of our time in Patagonia. We loved the hike and trying to sneak up on the guanacos and looking for fossils. Our lunch that we ended up having inside one of the ranch cottages due to the weather was perfect--wine, cheese...

Julián is a very nice, authentic tourist guide. He knows lots of details of the estancia regarding its history and natural environment. Tipical dinner in the house is a good plus. One of the best experiences in Calafate for sure. Finding true fossiles is an unbelievable experience!

My parents and my wife and I went on this safari with Julián in late December, 2012, and it surpassed all our expectations. It's much more than just sight-seeing in an unforgettable landscape. Aptly titled, it is a great experience. For those curious about the history, the land and the people that settled it...and who want to see another side... More
