Very sorry to hear you had a bad experience. We usually don't have any problems. But there is one guide, that does not speak in English. Hope you at least enjoyed the views. best regards,

We really enjoyed this 4X4 jeep trip up the mountain. The trip itself is rough and bumpy and roads were steep so probably not suitable for those who dislike heights or get motion sickness. But the views were outstanding and we saw a lot of...More

Thank you for your comments. It is very difficult to see pumas. They are very scared of people.

Cerro Friso is a spectacular reserve. The best way to access is by horse or 4X4. We opted for a 4X4 safari tour with Estancia Alice - unbelievable. Our group was quite large and we were escorted in 4 Land Rovers across beautiful and breathtaking...More

We originally booked the zip-lines at Cerro Frias to fill a half day when we were in El Calafate. Unfortunately, it was raining on and off that afternoon. The zip-lines had to be closed. So we switched to the 4x4 trip up the mountain. We...More

Transportation, greetings, and amazing vistas finished off with an excellent lunch with an incredible view, this place should be a definite must on your bucket list. Our charming hostess could not have been more helpful and our driver was one of the best.

Greeting from Australia. My mother and I will be arriving in El Calafate early on 21 March and leaving at 7:00pm on Friday 25 March 2016. I have since realised that this is Easter Friday and I wondered if you will still be running tours on that day. Also, do the shops and restaurants open on Good Friday? Here in Australia everything is closed. We were planning to do your zipline tour on either Monday or Friday. Also, my mother is a very active 78 year old. Do you have an age restriction? Muchas gracias!
