“Best thing to do in Punta Arenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012 via mobile

We have to stay two nights at Punta Arenas due to bus schedule to Ushuaia. We were wandering what to do after trekking Torres del Paine. We decide to take two tours of the day. City tour on the morning and Fort Bulnes tour on the afternoon.
City tour visited the cemetry where history of town graved and Lady Brown's house. Guide was excellant, we can see Punta Arenas in new view and Ushuaia's Beagle channel as well.

Afternoon visit to Fuerto Bulnes was a little bit not satisfactory due to cold and wind weather. But it was valuable to see what they do at the end of continent.

“Your MUST DO 1/2 day in Punta Arenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The tour was on the expensive side for our budget-conscious ways but it was WORTH EVERY PENNY!
We visited the Cemetery, Sarah Braun House, Vista of PA and Straights of Magellan, and also the town square. Our guide spoke good english and was clearly very bright and knowledgeable about PA history and culture and the city of today.
I had NO IDEA about the extraordinary history and industry in Punta Arenas. All this time I was thinking it was *just*-where-you-take-off-for-Antarctica...

For travellers with mobility concerns: I was travelling with my father who has early stage Parkinsons. Frieda Lange actually sent their bus to our hotel to pick us up before the tour so Daddy could save his strength for the (maybe a mile? and stairs) walk through the cemetery. The rest of the tour though was seated in the van with get-out type stops. The Sarah Braun House had stairs but plenty wide and with railings. Daddy napped the afternoon afterwards but will today tell you the tour was his favorite thing we did in Punta Arenas.

“Fun city tour by foot and van”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We took a tour of the city and learned a great deal about Punta Arenas, it has so much history! Our guide was great, he spoke English great and had a massive amount of knowledge about the area. I'd recommend the city tour if you have the time.

“A must for anyone with a day in Punta arenas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011 via mobile

A great tour around the city (sandy point). It was well worth the money. The guide was excellent and informative and the places you visit were great. Totally worthwhile!

“An Informative Way To See The City, Get Your Bearings and Discover The Charm Of Punta Arenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

My Wife and I had walked around Punta Arenas, on our own, for three days prior to taking the Frieda Lange & Co. Tour. We figured we'd seen most everything, but we decided on the tour anyway. We were happily surprised to be taken to a bunch of new places (the tour has one dedicated van driver and one guide that walks around with you at each stop). Our guide was really well informed concerning the history and current happenings in Punta Arenas and spoke very fluent English. In addition, our guide seemed to genuinely enjoy his job and his enjoyment made the tour that much more fun for us. The only place that the tour took us that we had visited prior (on our own) was the cemetery. However, we saw a bunch more things we had missed and got the history/meaning behind a lot of areas/monuments/etc. that otherwise would have gone undiscovered. While we were on the tour, they even held our backpacks/luggage in their office and called us a taxi when the tour had wrapped up (and offered us Yerba Mate). The tour really brought out the charm/history of Punta Arenas and we were very glad we decided to take it.
