“Great time with "Coco"!!!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Asking at the hotel front desk, they suggest us to take this tour, that was the best in Ushuaia...
And it was perfect!!!
Our Guide, Coco, was wonderful and made our journey perfect!!!
We were lucky that the weather was gorgeous and my wife and I were the only guests for the whole day.
We had a good meal (argentinian empanadas, cordero fueguino and a good argentinian wine) and a great time.
By the way, the landscape, the lakes, everything is wonderful at this tour.
I would go back!!!

“Best 4x4 off-roading group”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Had read several reviews and Tierra Turismo was identified by many as the best, and I would agree (though we only went off-roading with them so can't really compare the other companies). They picked us up at the hotel so very convenient. They really go off-road- dirt roads with puddles, through the forest, into the lake for part of it. Lake Fagnano and Escondido are absolutely beautiful and they stop for several photo opportunities! You then do a short easy (10 min) hike through a fern forest and arrive at a cabin where they do a traditional parilla- very filling! Choripan (enough as a stand-alone lunch) followed by 3 generous servings of steak! More food than anyone could take in! They also provide mate, Mendoza wine, coffee/tea! They then take you on a rubber dinghy across Lake Escondido. All in all- great experience!

When we were there, their credit card machine was broken so may want to have cash ready! (And in Patagonia, that can be an issue since it's sometimes hard to find an ATM with money and there's a daily withdrawal limit. Short of it is... get money from the ATM whenever you can since the next ATM or even entire town may not have cash stocked!)

“Very entertaining excursion”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This was a very entertaining excursion. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The 4x4 ride was fun. It entire tour was exciting, yet in a weird way, relaxing and peaceful. This is definitely off the beaten path. Ushuaia, while a beautiful city, does not have much to offer beyond the usual tourist things. Even though relatively expensive ($110/per person U.S.), I felt like it was worth it. The lunch was good. It was better than most parrilllas in BA. It's definitely worth it. I'm not giving it a 5 rating b/c it was not a must see. However, there is nothing negative to say about this excursion. Good and with it!

“Nice experience - Professional - within expectations”
Reviewed March 16, 2012 via mobile

The title refers to our experience of having done this trip.
- I do think it is rather expensive but at the end it is worth the money
- Guides are friendly - professional - advising and explaining.
- Places being visited are not the places you would find on your own
So, satisfied, happy in average.
