About
The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of Patagonia’s most visited natural wonders and part of the UNESCO-listed Los Glaciares National Park. On this tour, experience the magnitude of the glacier with views from both land and water. Admire panoramic views as you gaze out over the glacier from the shore, then cruise beneath the mighty walls of ice and perhaps get to watch as chunks ‘calve’ off into the water.

A beautiful landscape, one of the best views in the world. The guides were amazing and people were so positive. But the official guys of the national park in the boats were really impulsive with young woman. It would be nice if they don't say things to women. I didn't say or even looked at them, and one of them make me feel really unconfortable with his comments when I entered in the boat. Then, when I left, he told me that I should drink more beer instead of mate... I didn't say a word to him before. Why does he think he has a right to tell me that?

The glacier did not disappoint, but the way there was difficult for my senior citizen friends. The bus ride was too long for the bladder’a comfort. The Argentina tourism industry needs to invest in buses with toilets. We had the same problem in Buenos Aires.

For some reason, the elevator in Los Glaciares National Park was not working, seniora had to use several flights of stairs, to the detriment of their knees.

A beautiful landscape. A flash of blues. The stairs take us down near the glacier. By boat we are mush more near and the image is Suberb and with some luck we can observe a fall of a little part of the glacier. Recommended!

Posting does not state that 48 hours is required for company "to confirm". Called after booking day prior to excursion and was told we would have information about pickup in the morning. Never received any information and had to call 45 minutes for pickup to be told tickets were not bought enough in advance. They issued a refund but we had to scramble to find a tour. Take your money elsewhere.

Do not use Viator, find another agent. Did not pick us up despite the confirmation & full payment 2 days before. You have to reconfirmed with passport number before 5pm the day before your travel. If not, no pick up from hotel and you missed the whole trip. We were travelling from Chile to Argentina the day before and had no access to internet. We arrived at hotel at 7pm and responded immediately but still no pick up the next day......no refund either! No other company will ask for additional information after confirmation of booking. If passport number is require, it could easily be included in the original application so no reconfirmation is needed. The whole process appears to be a scam.

When I arrived at my hotel, the details of my trip were waiting for me (in an envelope). The mini bus picked me up on time and we started our trip. Our group was about 15 people - so not too many. I was the only native English speaker on the tour and the guide offered to do the tour in both Spanish and English. My Spanish is ok and as part of the reason for my trip was to improve my Spanish - I asked for Spanish. The guide was very good to speak clearly and not too quickly. The glacier is spectacular and not to be missed on an tour to this region. I did the additional boat trip and it was good, but you don't get much closer to the glacier than from the lookouts. If you are a bit tight with money you could skip the boat trip, but you do have an extra hour to fill in. Either way - good fun and not too be missed.

Perito Moreno is a worthwhile experience, but the prices here are outrageous.
I paid 160 dollars for two persons. Everyone else paid less than 20 dollars per person for boat ride. Entrance fees to park (around 15 dollars per person) are not even included. This is mere taking advantage of foreigners! Not fair. Also tour was supposed to be in English. All was Spanish.

The Glacier was stunning!

Only things is that the tour guide showed up half an hour late, the tour was mostly in Spanish (and little English) and on top of the ticket you had to pay your own Park Entrance fee and your own lunch.
