review 14 Mar 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There are simply lots of memorable AND exciting parts of this incredible holiday! But one that stands out is watching the clouds clear to see the Torres del Paine after a great hike up with the best guide, Chapa!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for all weather. From basking in glorious sunshine to huddling in snow storms, we had it all! Make sure your day pack has everything you need and is comfortable it spends a lot of time on your back!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, it was wonderful to feel as a tourist that you weren't exploiting the land and in fact, playing a part in ensuring conservation of a special part of the world. Our mountain guides were all so keen on conservation - telling us in detail about the fauna and flora, picking up any rubbish found on route, enforcing National Park rules for both us and other walkers - they instilled a sense of environmental care which we all loved to feel.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very highly. It was a fantastic unique opportunity which will be treasured forever. Don't hesitate, just book!!!!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Every day brought its own highlights - but possibly Mount Fitzroy simply because this was our first encounter with the Andes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure that you're fit and have the right equipment for the terrain and weather. You really can have all four seasons in a day!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - because the emphasis was on walking, which gives you a different experience of the country.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This is one of the best holidays I've ever been on.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The trek up to the towers on the Friday . We had blue sky the Torres de pain towers and lake looked magnificent, it was well worth the physical effort . The guides were very good and the walking group was good fun and good company.

To take well worn in boots I did not have a problem but other walkers did.

Yes we stayed in an eco camp and kept fully to their rules and requests, the camp itself was fully sustainable . We also purchased locally made goods to support the local people and were responsible with all our litter.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I would give it 5 stars, it was a truly amazing trip we were met at all our landings and saw some landscape . The falls were amazing . I felt heathy and well after the trek.

Torres del Paine, Fitzroy Massif, Perito Glacier Best Accommodation - Pudu Lodge Best Camp - Camp Los Torres Best Meal - Estacia Lad Hijas Best Guide - Muti in Fitzroy Massif

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Enjoyed the local hiking guides that were hired.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall, was pleased with our decision to do this part of our travels as a tour. Appreciated all the bookings, transfers, box lunches ie logistics as well as the different tour options that were arranged. The tour did not meet expectations with regard to highlighting the culture, history etc of Argentina. Tour leaders need to be passionate about Argentina like our hiking guides were. Our tour leader was not.
