Wonderful tour. Picked us up at the hotel and made our way to the Glacier The tour guide was was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable and kind. The driver was also first rate. We really enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to anyone. I would suggest a visit to the Glacier Museum prior to the tour for all relevant insight to the glacier.

Great trip, seeing the Gletcher from all sides
Mar. 2020
Well organized trip with good English speaking guides.
On the way to the boat tour we have been told a lot about the area.
The boat trip was good (the one with a larger upper deck, so everybody could take photo's easily) and after that we went to the walkways where you have about 2-3 hours time to have lunch and walk around on your own. Surprisingly the view from the walkways added a lot even after the boat tour.
Loved the well organized trip and the guides!

Amazing Glacier Tour
Mar. 2020 • Couples
The pick-up was exactly on time. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The boat trip was really worth it, although the deck was too small for everybody to enjoy it completely. The land part was very enjoyable, as the park is easy to walk and the glacier is simply amazing. We could have spent more time watching it.

Hearing the crack as an iceberg breaks off is unforgettable! It's like a rifle shot.
Feb. 2020
The sound is unforgettable, but by the time you turn after hearing that sound, the ice is already entering the water! You have to select a spot on the wall and wait. The glacier is moving at a rate of 2 meters per day: if you wait and let gravity do its thing, you WILL see the piece you've been waiting on break off in front of your eyes. Have the camera mounted and steady, and bring a nice bag lunch!

Thank you for the shining review William! Visiting Perito Moreno is always a stunning experience, but when you choose to explore this natural wonder with SayHueque, the experience is a step above. Plus, we agree that icebergs are amazing! Try to take pictures to the pieces of ice falling into the water, if you can! Best, Luna from Say Hueque

A must see and experience
Mar. 2019
We first viewed the glacier from a high viewing points. There were paths leading down to get closer which were secured with fencing and there were various points to stop and view. We then took a boat ride that went close to the glacier. The highlight was seeing pieces of the glacier falling into the water.

Full day tour
Jan. 2020
We were picked up in a bus around 9:45 AM. We stopped twice for a nice view of Lake Argentino and a distance glimpse of Merino. Then we got to the National Park and were given our instructions and recommendations on what to do (good advice given). We had ample time to walk on the various pathways (easy to walk because the paths are like chain link fencing so no rain or snow accumulates and good directions from the guide). We experienced temperatures in the 40’s-50’s and were not cold. You get fairly close to the glacier but binoculars did enhance the viewing. We also did the boat trip which was colder and did give you a nice and different perspective. Weather is unpredictable and constantly changing here so dress in layers and plan for on and off rain and sun.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience in Perito Moreno Glacier with us, 849donaldl! We work hard to give each customer the travel experience of a lifetime, and to make them feel as you have described in your review of our services. We are so happy that you had a great experience with our guide! We will be sure to share your kind words with him. As you say, experiencing different climates during the day is common in Patagonia! You can start your day with rain and end the afternoon with a clean sky! That is why we recommend dressing like an onion, with different layers of clothes! Kindest regards, Luna from SayHueque

Fabulous Trip
We had a wonderful time in Patagonia! Laura from Say Hueque did a great job arranging our trip. We were so thrilled to see the Perito Moreno Glacier in El Calafate and to walk among the penguins in Ushuaia! Both excursions were awesome! We also loved the catamaran ride to see the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers in Chile. El Calafate was the perfect home base for all of the other cities. Also, we loved El Chaten even though the “easy hikes” were not so easy. The transfers were excellent. We were picked up and dropped off on time with no problems. We liked all of the superior class hotels for different reasons. This was a once in a lifetime trip. Thank you Laura!
