This Perito Moreno experience is one that should not be missed. The team who lead us through this majestic ice field was professional, attentive, and fun. They were lead by one of the English speaking guides-I believe his name was Carlos. He was very attentive to the safety of those in our group. At the same time, they were very eager to highlight the awe inspiring characteristics of the Glacier, including running water, crevases (sp), and even a cave that was safe to enter under a Glacier. The guides mostly, demonstrated a deep respect for the Glacier park and the changing environment. This was my first experience with such terrain and I am typically wimpy, however, the excursion is well organized and planned out to ensure the enjoyment and success of those participating. We loved it and highly recommend and excursion with Amayco Turismo y Expediciones.

Our travel agency (Voyage Autrement which I definitely would NOT recommend had, lucky for us, delegated all the services to Amayco.
Amayco was simply superb, the staff could not do enough for us, thought of every detail. They went beyond the call of duty on every front…The guide Alejandor was pleasant, knowledgeable, informative always very helpful foreseeing our every need. He lent my daughter his coat, my husband gloves, covered me with a blanket as I was sleeping in the mini van on the way back (we had left at 2h30am for our flight to El Carafate)
Being in the hands of such hospitable people made this expensive trip totally worth it. They were always there waiting for us, had the best parking spots to get out of crowded places fast etc .
A most memorable experience in the hands of the best ambassadors for El Carafate and its surrounding excursions.

Our two week organized trip used Amayco during our time in El Calafate and for our drives to El Chalten and to the airport. Our day tour to Perito Moreno was incredible- Cecilia, our guide, was so knowledgeable about the area and the glacier. She was able to provide a wealth of knowledge but also interact with us and have a fun filled day making it that much more enjoyable. Mariano, the owner and our driver, was so welcoming and a true gentleman. We had just a great time with this expedition company I would highly recommend others use them. They care about you on a personal level. Thanks for an enjoyable experience

The Perito Moreno glaciar excursion is a must: it is very we'll organised: the guide, Cecilia, is absolutely great: she gave us a lot of interesting information concerning, not only the glaciar, but about Patagonia's past and present too.
Julio was an excellent driver and a very pleasant person as well. Thanks for a memorable day !

From the moment we were picked up at the airport until we were dropped of again the service was excellent and so friendly. They were very helpful with explaining the area and pointing out attractions. No complaints at all.
