Our day with MilOutdoor will be remembered as a highlight of our trip. From the moment we were picked up at our little B&B early in the morning, until we were dropped off that evening, we felt well cared for. The guides are top-notch - giving us great information about the geology and geography of the land and the glacier as we rode to Perito Moreno, giving us time to wander around the park to take in the amazing views, and then suiting us up in high-tech thermal gear for our kayak trip in the frigid lake. A couple of things: while I was at first dismayed when I read that I would not be able to take pictures out on the water, I quickly realized that this is for a VERY GOOD reason. Simply put, our four kayak guides (plus one in a motor boat standing at the ready), are making sure we stay alive. With ten or so kayaks occupied by people with wildly varying skills, allowing people to constantly stop to take pictures just isn't viable. The guides all took LOTS of photos - while some were blurry from water droplets, there were plenty that were perfectly fine. I've seen a few reviews from people complaining that they wanted to get closer to the glacier. They obviously didn't go the day we did, because that morning we saw a huge chunk of the glacier calve off and fall into the lake, sending huge waves out for hundreds of feet. We were quite happy we got as close as we did, and even happier that we weren't taken any closer. Plus - we got to kayak around an iceberg! How cool is that?! As we were kayaking a strong wind came up, and with it lots of waves. With other guides I might have been worried, but Andres and the rest kept us moving, constantly encouraging us, and got us all back to shore safely. What an adventure! Thanks to MilOutdoor for providing us with such incredible memories - Best, Marianne and Brian

We made reservations months in advance, and had an amazing tour. We opted for the half-day only, which meant that we met them out at the park since we had our own vehicle. The introduction was brief and then we changed and walked a hundred yards or so down to the water. We've kayaked before, but got very lucky that the wind wasn't too bad...it would have been a physical challenge if we had been fighting wind the whole way! They kept us a safe distance from the glacier, but there were only one or two big boats that got between us, so for the most part we had unobstructed views. As it was, we saw ice calving off the glacier, learned a ton from our guides, and were able to download some excellent photos a few days after the tour (via Flickr). They had gloves available for anybody who wanted them, and we were plenty warm in our drysuits. Highly recommend this rare opportunity to kayak beneath a glacier!

We went on the Kayak tour and were a bit disappointed. We had done the mini trekking the day before and loved it but the kayak tour did not even get us close to the glacier. It was also extremely windy which made it a bit difficult to steer the Kayak-none of us had ever done this before and the guide did not really provide much help. Furthermore you cannot bring your own camera, and the pictures the guide took were terrible. I would recommend doing the mini trekking instead.

We had good weather which definitely helps but the activity was great. Real rafting experience, not just floating on a silly river, excellent guides and a beautiful river banks / overview of nature.

We found out when we arrived we were put in an excursion at a different time than we booked, for a time that was 4 hours later. We never got any communication about this prior. As you can imagine, a change like this can completely throw off other plans you've already made for the day. We talked to both our guide and front desk at the office about this, and we didn't get any reply beyond "this is the time it says on our schedule". We didn't even get a basic acknowledgement that they messed up. The tour itself was okay. You are very far from the glacier, and there aren't any icebergs floating in the water. We basically kayaked in a straight line going away from the glacier and then turned back. Overall not great value given the cost.
