Trip Overview

We were impressed with the uniformly excellent local guides, the flow of the itinerary, and the consistently excellent logistics.


This trip exceeded every expectation. Patagonia has long been on my mind, but I could not have anticipated the level at which being there would affect us. I had started out thinking we were taking the trip of a lifetime; now I think it is just the first of its kind.
