El Calafate, Perito Moreno Glacier and Torres Del Paine National Park represent the most stunning natural landscapes of Argentina and Chile. Tour Perito Moreno Glacier and Torres Del Paine and enjoy this true Patagonia adventure that discovers the best of Argentina and Chile.

Day 1 – Travel to Patagonia: El Calafate

Welcome to Southern Patagonia!

El Calafate is located in the Patagonian steppe, dry and dramatic.

Day 2 – El Calafate: Perito Moreno Glacier Tour

After an appropriate time you will leave on a full day excursion to Perito Moreno Glacier (shared service), in Los Glaciers National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981 and home to one of the most awe inspiring landscapes in Argentina, Perito Moreno Glacier is a site to behold.
During about 1 hour a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know, and things you might have never thought about.

On arrival you will have the chance to enjoy stunning views of the glacier from the nearby walking trail and viewing platforms.
But not just that, you will also enjoy the included Perito Moreno Glacier boat cruise that will take you close enough to fully appreciate the 80m high ice walls! In the early evening, you will return to you hotel in Calafate.

Day 4 – Torres Del Paine Tour

In the early morning you will be picked up for the full day excursion to Torres del Paine National Park.
Along the road you might be able to see rheas, guanacos, Patagonian hare, and even condors.
After crossing the patagonian steppe from North to South, you will arrive at the border post “Cancha Carrera” after a 2,5 hs trip. There, you will start to travel through the beautiful South Chile until you arrive at the “Torres del Paine” National Park (“Blue Towers” in the Tehuelche language, due to the predominant color).

Keep an eye out for wild guanacos as they roam the windy plains.
It is a long day, but we believe it deserves every hour. Some of the wonders of the world renowned park that you will visit will be Salto Grande, Laguna Amarga, Lago Pehoe, the Cuernos del Paine and of course, the famous Torres del Paine.

In the evening you’ll be transfer back to your hotel in El Calafate.

Thanks again to Say Hueque and especially to you & Lucia and all the other people who helped me have a wonderful holiday.

Hello Marcela
How are you ? I hope you are fine. Apologies for the long delay in responding. I had to go back to work the day after getting home from South America and then two friends from London arrived to stay with me for two weeks so I've been busy looking after them.

I heard about Say Hueque, from searching the internet for local travel agents in South America.
I like to use local businesses when i travel. That way i know i'm contributing to the economy and the locals like to present their country the best way possible.

My favourite destination was El Calafate. I loved the little town. My hotel was upgraded and the excursions to Perito Moreno and Torres Del Paine day trips were excellent.

My favourite hotel was Mirador Del Lago in El Calafate & Don Tomas in Atacama were both very good and hard to choose which one was better out of the two. Very good service at both hotels. The meals in the restaurants were delicious. The facilities and location was also very good and suited my needs

About the excrsion, it is hard to choose between Perito Moreno & Iguasu day trips. Both were excellent. But the organisation in El Calafate was probably the better out of the two.

Guides, They were all pretty good.

I think the full day trip to Argentine side of Iguasu is a bit too much if people are not doing the boat rides. There should be an option to do a half day trip without the boat ride. Because only 2 people in the group did the boat ride and the rest of us just sat around. People can spend the time to look at other waterfalls in the area but after a whole day of walking around it's very tiring for some people.

Thanks again to Say Hueque and especially to you & Lucia and all the other people who helped me have a wonderful holiday.
Regards
Catherine

The whole trip was great for a solo traveller and the places/location visited were stunning.

Hi Patricia,

I knew say hueque visiting the tourradar travel site.I watched your web site and I found the ideas and travel offers good.

The whole trip was great for a solo traveller. The b&b were ok and the places/location visited were stunning.
The only think to underline is that in el chalten there were no active ATM nor banks. This means that you cannot take any money once you there.
My highlight of traveling with you was that I could avoid any intermediate company and have a packed trip planned.
My favorite hotel was El chalten cyan for the breakfast and my favorite excursion the personal boat tour in Ushuaia. The best guide was Nico on Torres del Paine tour

Communication in general and in specific cases could be improved. Like the one of no ATM in el chalten. Patagonia Sur is expensive.

Have a good day,
Daniele

Overall, we were very pleased with the tour and were particularly impressed with you, Rodrigo. Everything ran smoothly and was first-class. Thank you to everyone at Say Hueque.

Rodrigo,
We have returned from Antarctica and are home safe, sound, and happy. Below are my replies to your questions. Overall, we were very pleased with the tour and were particularly impressed with you, Rodrigo. We appreciated all the work you did to put us back on schedule after the late arrival of our plane. That was very helpful; we could not have done it on our own. Everything ran smoothly and was first-class. Thank you to everyone at Say Hueque.

I found Say Heque on the internet when looking for Patagonia tours.
The best aspect of our experience was in the planning--being able to get answers to our questions from someone who was familiar with the area, hotels, and tours; and having every detail arranged for us.
There was only one hotel on our itinerary--El Mirador del Lago, but we thought it was very nice. It was in a good location, attractive, friendly, the rooms were nice and clean, and the bathrooms were modern. (Due to a flight delay, Rodrigo arranged a nice hotel in Palermo that we also enjoyed.)
My favorite excursion was Perito Moreno glacier, because we got close to the glacier and had time to absorb the beauty from many angles and take pictures. However, I enjoyed them all for different reasons.
I am sorry, I did not write down the names of our guides. Our guide at Christina Estancia on the historical tour was very good. (We did the ATV tour first, then ate lunch and did the historic tour last.) Our guide in Torres del Paine was easy to understand and very nice. I remember she lives in a small town, has two young children, really loves her work, and it shows. The guide who was with us to the Chilean border spoke particularly good English and explained the border crossing very well. All the guides were friendly.
I would like to see more detail on the invoice to know exactly what was included. Much of our pre-trip communication was through emails and the final invoice did not specially list all that was discussed. For example, the transport from the airport to our hotel on the last day was not listed. I had to search through emails to verify that it had been arranged. Also, lunch for the Christina Estancia was not clear; it appeared that lunch was included, but then on the boat we learned that it was not. I would like to see each item listed: transport between airports, flight info, transport to hotel, hotel, tours, specific lunch (who provides), etc. The transportation and lunches were not clearly explained or listed. (I guess we had chosen to have a box lunch rather than the lamb, but we were not told how to get that box lunch, nor did we have a choice in sandwich.)
