Punta Alta vs 21 de mayo river and glacier tour

We will be staying in Puerto Natales in February and are considering booking either the 21 de mayo tour or basically the same thing (I think) with the Punta Alta tour company. I have read several posts about the 21 de mayo tour. Does anyone have any experience with the Punta Alta tour company? The itinerary they post on their web site looks pretty good, and the cost is the same as 21 de mayo. Thanks.

Punta Alta is new on the Glaciers route as their ship.

You may get some tips about the trip:

The route to the Glaciers is the same, but not the return to Puerto Natales. 21 de Mayo stops in Estancia Perales for lunch. Punta Alta in estancia puerto Consuelo. Both offers lunch included in the trip.

21 de Mayo boats are shaped as the former boats (cutter) but very well built for passengers. they have three boats. You may go out during the trip.

Punta Alta have a modern motor boat, internally as a plane passenger room. You can not go outside during the trip, but it has wide windows.

21 de Mayo departs from Puerto Bories (15 minutes from Puerto Natales-they supply a bus from their office at Puerto Natales center-).

Punta Alta departs from Puerto Natales pier.
