Excellent and absolutely worth the journey. Much larger than glacier grey so really worth seeing while you are in Chile. The navigation (boat trip) and national park entry fees are on top of the cost of this excursion. However the coach is very comfortable and clean toilet facilities

The glacier was awesome. Getting up close with the boat was a wonderful opportunity . The day trip however, was too long. We spent 10 hrs driving. Its best to split that trip.

As mentioned in the tour title, it’s just transportation between Perito Moreno Glacier and Puerto Natales. The staying at Perito Moreno was about two hours only despite its departure was around 7AM and its return was around 11PM. It must be suitable for people who want to see Perito Moreno Glacier as a day trip from Puerto Natares but it was too tough for me. AC in the bus didn’t work so it was very cold especially on the way back from Perito Moreno. I ended up to catch a cold.

We took this trip, is a long bus ride from Puerto Natales to Perito Moreno (6 hours), is quite short the visit, but for us was worth it. Our bus was broken in el Calafate (at 1 hour before the park), but we were lucky and another was almost immediately available and all went good, even with an private boat to watch closely the glacier. The guide from the park (Cecilia) took care of us, and even help us for the ones that didn't have cash (they accept cash in Euro, Dollars, Chilean Pesos, and Argentinian Pesos, the last one is the best option to have with you). At the park they also accept card, but just at the entrance. The return was smooth and we were at Puerto Natales at 23:00. Is quite a long trip, but if you don't have enough time to stay in el Calafate is a good option.

I feel as if this really wasn't worth the trip. We had a day off in Puerto Natales and thought it would be a good idea to visit the glaciers. There were multiple things about this that sucked: - after you book, they require you to acquire Argentinian pesos to cover the park entrance fee and the glacier boat tour. This should have been just baked into the cost of the experience. Expect to pay $30-$60 per person extra based on exchange rate you get. Your payment only covers the bus fare here. - you travel 6 hrs each way just to see the glaciers from a park for one hour and then go on a boat tour for another hour. After that it's a 6 hour trip back home - the posting didn't mention anything to me about food and we assumed we'd be brought to some sort of restaurant for lunch and dinner. Nope. There was a cafe in the park, but you couldn't sit down here otherwise you take away time from seeing the glaciers (1 hr time limit). On the way back we stopped at a gas station that had empanadas and junk food. Tour operators didn't even provide water. Make sure you pack food and water. - I don't think it's possible to even have time to stay for longer because the border closes and the bus ride is so long. This should have been a multi day trip if anything.

Nothing is wrong with the tour itself. Everyone from the local tour operator was awesome but Viator overcharged us and won’t reimburse the difference even with their policy. Buy from local tour operator, they charges you lot less.

Yes, it is a very long tour. Yes, it is more a roundtrip transportation option from Puerto Natales to Perito Moreno. But it is so worth it. It is a long trip but if you want to experience the most beautiful glacier in Argentina this is a tour you should definitely consider.

<p>The tour was fine, the guide was nice and Los Glaciares National Park is beautiful, but anyone who really wants to spend time there should just book a night or two in El Calafate and get a tour from there. Going from Puerto Natales means leaving very early and not getting to the park until 1 or 2 in the afternoon, then you only have a couple hours at the park before spending 5 or 6 more hours on the bus back to Puerto Natales. Nothing wrong with the tour itself, just would have liked more time in the park.</p>

El bus es bueno. Un destino muy bonito, pero no volvería en un tour. Todo se hace con prisa, deberían comenzar el tour más temprano o terminarlo más tarde, ni hay tiempo destinado para almorzar con tranquilidad. No es lógico viajar más de 600 km para estar menos de 2 horas en el parque.
