Marcello was a great guide, with great field experience. Wandering in snowshoes (provided) above the Gartibaldi pass in the snow and the fog above tree level to find a pair of tiny camouflaged birds looked quite an impossible task... but after a few hours Marcelo found them and we got all amazing views! And pics!

We had a great visit with Marcelo bird watching in tierra del fuego park and would highly recommend him. he picked us up at the pier and dropped us off at the airport. in a long day we saw 50 species, including a pair of woodpeckers, most endemics, and a new rarity for the park. Great lunch also. Would highly recommend him. Good pace to the trip.

My husband and I got Juan's name from ruben-ushuaia@hotmail.com whose name we found online and who gives private tours of Ushuaia and area. Ruben was busy the day we wanted a tour and passed on Juan's name to us. Juan was a fabulous recommendation who we would highly recommend. We drove through the National Park and we saw the train that we had debated going on. Fortunately we didn't do it..... Juan showed us what a short track it was. We saw Roca Lake, Green Lagoon, Lapataia Lake and we drove to the End of the World post office where we bought the most expensive post cards with stamps ever!! The tour ended with a city tour of Ushuaia and Juan kindly took us to his sister's apart hotel to access WiFi. If anyone needs a place to stay it looked like a good location and was very clean. We ended our tour by stopping at a supermarket to pick up a bottle of wine that Juan recommended. I love Malbec from Mendoza and his suggestion of Rutini Malbec turned out to be the best Malbec I have ever had!! Juan's Whatsapp # is +54 9 2901 565355. Finding guides for this part of the world was a challenge so we were very fortunate to have found Juan. He was a wealth of information and a terrific guide.

Marcelo was recommended to me by Polar Cruises as an experienced birding guide in Ushuaia. He responded to several emails promptly and confirmed our arrangements nearer the time for our birding tour. Marcelo's English is very good and his knowledge of the history and natural history of the area and birds are all excellent. We saw 36 species including our target species. Marcelo's birding tour included all transport, light refreshments and the option to buy food at the park restaurant. He was very flexible in order to meet our individual needs. He carried a high quality telescope for us and confirmed the birds in a book for us to check any details if we wished. He also offered photographic advice for those interested. The walk along the shore through the beautiful forest looking for the Magellanic woodpecker was wonderful. Marcello included many different ecosystems and took us to different parts of the beautiful Tierra del Fuego Park to see the different species. The scenery is amazing. He emailed all the species promptly after the tour. He also gave us tips for birding around Ushuaia. It was a wonderful day and Marcello is a knowledgable and entertaining birding guide. Thanks a lot Marcelo! .

We were a group of 20 adults on a cruise to Antarctica, we had limited time owing to ship delays. We chose this nature tour company based on TA reviews and it met/exceeded our expectations. Very nice park to visit and enjoy the scenery. The hikes were moderate and provided good scenic spots. Our guide Paula and the Driver Paul were excellent in their performance. Paula provided very good description/explanation of the flora and fauna. She took the time to explain the various plant species, formations and birds in the park. Nice to have a guide who can take good group photos. The snack with tea / coffee was excellent.
