It is a full day tour. The agency was punctual to pick us up and take us. The guide gave us very interesting information and answered all questions. Saint Martin is a cute little town, seeing the lake in spring was beautiful.

There are beautiful scenery along the way. The number of stops is limited, so I think it is necessary to be prepared to take pictures through the window from inside the car.

The overall experience was excellent The guide was very knowledgable and with with a very good sense of humor . The tour was very balanced with no excess stops or taklings

It was a very nice tour to San Martín de los Andes. The guide, Alfredo, was very knowledgeable and entertained us wonderfully.

Was impressive. A lot on the bus but the viewpoints were beautiful!
