          Incredible place and train fabulous place really enjoyed the area the Train was fabulous especially as one of the Engines was made in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 However the train journey out was great but we had to wait a considerable time for our return journey I would recommend having the train out but get your Transport to pick you up at the other end We loved the Railway station and the surrounding district and the Prisoners/actors that you have the photos with which are not expensive.

          Super fun day in the National Park
          I only had a day and half in Ushuaia and wanted to get out and see the natural landscapes and this tour was the perfect way to see the National Park! I loved the combo of paddling and hiking for variety, and even in the overcast weather, the park is beautiful. It was an active tour but without being too difficult I'd say. And we had a delicious lunch in their covered dome! Great work from our guide Gabriel, driver Octavio and paddling guide Felipe, they made it such a fun day!

          Great way to see the fjords of Patagonia
          This is a great short cruise, for anyone who wishes to see, and understand the fjords and the archipelago of Patagonia. If you sail from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia, the first day is a hike and Zodiak visit to see the penguins. The second day is all about glaciers with glacier alley, south of the Darwin range. The third day the objective is to disembark at Cape Horn, but this is only possible, if the weather permits. Note that this is an expedition style cruise, which means that you use zodiacs to disembark and visit the shores.

          Excellent tour!
          We were only in Ushuaia for a day and a half, and wanted to make the most of our time. This was definitely my favourite activity during that time. It is a historic double-decker bus which has so much charm as soon as you walk in. service is absolutely exemplary. Starting from where you purchase the tickets, to the actual tour itself, it was amazing. Our bus driver was Javier, and the English speaking tour guide was Thomas. Both Javier and Thomas were so helpful with all of the tourists by taking photos, and making sure that everybody enjoyed the tour. Thomas is incredibly knowledgeable, and was able to share so much information during the tour which we greatly appreciated. Not only is Thomas incredibly intelligent, he is a genuinely kind hearted person who truly wants the best for everyone. He is going to go very far in the tourism industry. He has a perfect personality, as well as the knowledge to provide a great experience for the English speaking tourists… Of which there were many! Javier was always there as well to make sure that the tour around smoothly, and to help whenever it was needed. This is not your regular tour where it is only pre-recorded historical information about the places you see. Thomas was also able to provide a personalized experience by sharing his knowledge as well. The time went by so quickly, and we appreciated that it stops twice for everyone to get out and take photos. it was definitely the highlight of our time in Ushuaia. A big thank you to Thomas and Javier for making the extra special for everyone.

          Magical!
          Ushuaia is magical! It's a small southernmost city in the world and it's very navigable by foot. It's clean, safe and a wonderful place to start the journey and embark expedition ship to Antarctica!

          Hiking and rafting Patagonia National Park
          A beautiful day. Interesting to learn about the biodiversity. While hiking we were fortunate to observe wild horses, red fox, and many more. Our guide, Gabriel and Octavio were excellent. Highly recommend

          Don’t use Tangol! Viator booked thru Tangol for my tour. They are in cahoots with the booked tour company and did not deliver what we booked and put us in danger!

          We loved it, great way to see the national park
          This is an excellent tour and we can’t recommend it enough especially if you get Juan, Octavia and phillipe as your guides. Juan spoke very good English and was very funny too. The weather was typical for the area, it was snowing when we arrived, it then became sunny and then rained… repeat every hours or so. This was never a problem as we were given all the equipment we needed, waterproof trousers and gum boots for the rafting. The rafting was fun and not too challenging. We then stopped for lunch which was fabulous, the warming chicken stew was just what was needed. Next we headed out for our hike which was beautiful. This is a full day tour and worth every dollar ! Thanks so much to juan and the ana Antartur team.

          Great overview of Tierra del Fuego national park!
          The entire experience was seamless with this tour company. The hiking trail and canoe route were moderately challenging with plenty of breaks and photo opportunities. We had a group ranging from age 18 to 65, and everyone had an incredible time. Octavio and Gabriel provided an excellent experience.

          Informative and Inexpensive
          Stumbled across the bus tour while we stopped at visitor center for information - right by each other. It was about 1-1/2 hours, provided some great town history along with a couple stops to get off bus. It was a great value for only $10USD

          Fun Way to Spend a Day in TDF National Park.
          We had such a great experience with Juan and Felipe. We got to see three sea lions and two woodpeckers! The canoe trip was more like rafting but without any rapids, for those who aren't sure what to expect. The sea lions swam up to us in the raft and it was such a cool experience. Great guides and a fantastic way to spend a day in TDF National park.

        This really sounds like a fun day. However, beware that I booked this excursion and received a confirmation and voucher and even exchanged information about hotel pickup. Only to have them cancel the trip the afternoon before. This was my only day in Ushuaia to take an excursion like this. Their late cancellation has made it impossible for me to book another excursion. Not a very customer friendly thing to do.

        Dear Eric, We are really sorry you could not get the tour done but unfortunately the service got fully booked minutes before your booking entered and we could not add more departures that day as we have a limit, that´s why immediately we refunded your payment and cancel the tour the day before. Anyway if you are still in Argentina, Chile, Brasil or Peru we can offer you for free to take another of our tours in order to compensate you. Please contact us via email and we will. I hope you enjoy your holidays. Regards!

        The tour is done in a fleet of brand near new modified Toyota Hilux's which are more than capable of the terrain they take you on. Their pick up time from your hotel is prompt and the tour is offered in both English and Spanish. Something our tour guide did a great job with as we were the only people in our truck with english as their first language.

        First leg of the trip is on road to the Carbajal valley just up route 3 from Ushuaia. I made the mistake of doing this drive the day before so the first hour or so was a repeat. There is a pit stop at a cross country ski facility for a bathroom/coffee break.

        They then take you to Lake Escondido where they offer to let you go Canoeing. (NOTE THIS IS NOT MENTIONED IN THE ADVERTISING) However, conditions were too rough at the time and everyone wound up opting out of it so we pushed on to the off roading.

        Off road tracks take you from Lake Escondido to Lake Fagnano via abandoned logging roads. During this you will go through water, mud, and near vertical assents and descents. One thing worth noting, if you are at all prone to motion sickness, this will affect you.

        However, the overall trip through the Fuegian forests out to lake Fagnano are great as is the view once you get there.

        They then take you back to their base cabin where you are provided with a massive lunch of steak, chorizo, salad, bread, wine, etc. Lunch was almost the best part as you are seated with other travelers from around the world to socialize with.

        This trip was awesome! Freddy our guide was fantastic! He was very personable, easy to understand, knowledgeable, professional, and fun. The BBQ lunch was delicious. The vehicles were well maintained and comfortable. They picked us up from our AirBNB on time. The places we visited were beautiful. It was great to get out and canoe for a bit. The recent rain made off-roading more interesting. I would highly recommend this company and this tour.

        The experience was amazing due to the guide and wonderful places where we have been.

        Woods, lakes, mountains and a lot of curiosities made by mother nature. Serenity offered by the nature was simple astonishing.

        The trip was indeed a hard off road track and the driver - Sergio was full of trust.

        Our guide, Maxie, was right on time picking us up and was terrific about explaining everything. We loved the canoeing, seeing the huskies, the amazing scenery, and the late lunch was fantastic! Trip is not recommended for vegetarians. I could definitely see why you needed a 4x4 on this trip--some of the roads were downright scary, but we felt confident in our guide. Highly recommended.

        The dogs, the canoeing and the 4x4 trip were a blast. Christian is an excellent guide with a very outgoing personality. And boy can he make a steak! The lunch was more food than we could ever eat but we did because it was so delicious.

        We took the tour with the Brasileiros agency in Ushuaia. It was very good, we loved the entire route, the attention of the guide (driver). Ideal for those who like a quiet adventure. It was worth the trip.
