Just back as of last Sunday from Zaandam BsAs to San Antonio. Great trip.
A group of 9 from our RollCall booked Tierra del Fuego with Edgardo and we had an excellent trip. I would book them again in a heartbeat. Gaston, our assigned guide, was knowledgeable and friendly
and planned our walks when the busses were not there (so it was only our small group on the trail).
Valerie C. (jueves, 15 marzo 2018 14:48)
We arranged our tour for 3 couples through Edgar. We met our guide Gabriel at the cruise port and headed out for the tour of Tierra del Fuego. The enthusiasm shown by Gabriel was obvious as he shared
about this beautiful location. We enjoyed the hikes through the park as they took us to some of the most amazing scenery. It was a wonderful day.
Dave (lunes, 19 febrero 2018 17:21)
We were just there last week on Princess Cruises. We had a very knowledgeable guide who led us on a hike in the woods and identified the various flowers/trees/plants native to this isolated part of
the world. He was entertaining and kept us on schedule. He explained the process for getting our passports stamped at the little post office at the end of the world.
Steven G. (lunes, 19 febrero 2018 17:16)
i worked with edgar and agreed on a program for a day trip to tierra del fuego national park. my guide was gabriel and he knew his stuff. walked about 18 km and saw quite alot. would definately call
again next time im in ushuaia.
Henry H. (lunes, 19 febrero 2018 17:01)
Edgar arranged our small group tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Our tour guide Juan met us as arranged at our port stop in Ushuaia. We enjoyed a wonderful drive and several short hikes through
the forests of the park. Juan was very knowledgeable about the plants, animal, and birds, and made sure he pointed them out during our excursions. This was a wonderful exposure to the region at the
End of the World! When we were dropped off in town at the end of the tour, Juan also pointed out a resturant where we enjoyed dining on the local Fuegian king crab. Wonderful tour in Ushuaia.
Michele N. (viernes, 02 febrero 2018 10:31)
We just returned from a cruise "Around the Horn" from Santiago to Buenos Aires. We used Edgar with Tour Guides Ushuaia in both Porto Montt, Chile where we hiked and visited beautiful waterfalls,
lakes and a volcano, and in Ushuaia where we had an amazing day at the Tierra del Fuego National Park. It was very easy to arrange the tours with him, his communication was excellent, and the guides
were great. We especially enjoyed our guide Gaston's thorough knowledge and enthusiasm in Ushuaia. The prices for these tours were very reasonable and the guides were prompt to meet us at the pier in
I highly recommend these tours.
Charlotte G. (domingo, 28 enero 2018 06:18)
We just enjoyed several excellent tours with Edgar's team, at Usuhaia, Punta Arenas and Punta del Este. Some others also worked with him at Montevideo. They were all excellent but I particularly
enjoyed Ushuaia, and getting outdoors. The tour there featured walks in the National Parks and a really good overview from our extremely knowledgeable guide. If you need a break from the crowds on a
cruise ship and some time in nature, I thoroughly recommend Edgar's operation

We were a group of 6 and scheduled 3 separate tours with https://www.tourguideushuaia.net. The Ushuaia tour was discounted 10 percent since we had 3 tours scheduled. The guides for all of the tours
spoke excellent English. They were all extremely knowledgeable with respect to the history and nature of their locations. The tours were well planned, vans were well sized and very comfortable. In
every case the guides adjusted the tours to our needs and desires and each of the tours exceed all of our expectations. I highly recommend using Edgar's agency. I am confident that you will pleased
with this company.
Jack C. (martes, 19 diciembre 2017 20:02)
We just (Dec 15 2017)had a wonderful experience with Tour Guide Ushuaia for National Park Tour, organized by a fellow passenger on Celebrity Infinity. Pre tour communications (info, pricing, payment,
follow-up etc) by Edgar were professional and useful. Our tour guide was an expert (with excellent english) and modified the itinerary on the fly to avoid the huge tour buses from ship tours. We
still saw all promised highlights plus a handful more and without fighting crowds at viewpoints. Guide and driver were great team. We compared experiences with other passengers and this is clearly
the best deal available.
Tom F. (domingo, 17 diciembre 2017 17:37)
We were very happy with the tour that Coco provided. He was very knowledgeable, personable and tailored the tour to facilitate the groups needs and desires. It was a top notch experience and I am
planning to refer your agency to some others who will be sailing Seaborn later this season.
Our tour with “Flash” was also great. He too was very accommodating, spoke excellent English and provide interesting history and facts throughout the entire tour. He also tried to accommodate all of
the group’s needs.
Janet I. (jueves, 07 diciembre 2017 08:05)
I did a National Park tour with Edgar's company a couple of weeks ago. His communication beforehand was excellent. We stopped at a few places of interest that were good photo opps, and a stop at a
large cafe for a refreshment and comfort break was very welcome. I got my passport stamped Tierra del Fuego there. Unfortunately when we got to the End of The World Post Office where I'd hoped to get
it stamped (having remembered to retrieve it from the ship's Front Desk where they held everyone's passports) it was closed. Not unusual, apparently. Our guide was very knowledgeable and his English
Robert P. (martes, 02 mayo 2017 20:10)
Very much enjoyed this tour in April. The guide was very informative and driver also good. Vehicle was suitable for our needs. The scenery was amazing and enough time to take pictures. We chose not
to go to the prison museum which was extra cost and something we were not really interested in and so walked through the town instead.
Communication from Edgar regarding booking also excellent.
Mike L. (miércoles, 29 marzo 2017 17:11)
We arrived on a cruise ship and the tendering got us off the ship late. Juan was still there to greet us and showed us a fabulous time in Terra del Fuego National Park. We stopped at three different
sites to hike. This is a very beautiful area of the world. Juan did something special at 2 beautiful spots he asked everyone to stop taking pictures and just relax and enjoy the view for one minute.
Wow was it relaxing to see everyone just relax. Great job Juan!
Kim A. (miércoles, 29 marzo 2017 17:10)
Thank you Edgar for the utmost incredible day of trekking through Tierra del Fuego and the end of the world.
We were met promptly at our cruise ship and started our tour immediately.
This was not to be missed the sights, sounds and air was so very pure.
Everything was explained in detail. It led to a very thorough tour.
This should be a must do for anyone visiting Ushuaia!!!
Ilya A. (miércoles, 29 marzo 2017 17:05)
We had this tour in February 2017 with group of 16 people from our cruise ship. The guide Hebert was wonderful - informative and friendly. The tour took us through the main points of Montevideo and
finished with BBQ in backyard of Hebert's home. The food was delicious, but most of the food we remember the unique cordial atmosphere created by whole lively Hebert's family - his wife and two
daughters. We felt like dear invited guests to the family BBQ, not like customers. As organizer of the group I received after the tour a lot of gratitudes from my shipmates. I recommend warmly this
tour to everyone!
Susan G. (miércoles, 29 marzo 2017 17:02)
Great tour with Edgar to the National Park. Gave us great information while riding on the bus. We were given a choice of walking for a while or remain on the bus to meet the walkers at a different
point. Very enjoyable tour, highly recommended,
Sue Wayne and Judy
J. Merrill (lunes, 06 marzo 2017 09:25)
Normally my wife and I do only private tours, but because of our late cruise booking, our only option was a group tour with 8 individuals The tour was very nice and scenic. Our guide was well versed
in local knowledge and was very informative,professional and courteous. We were late getting off the ship due to "tender" issues, but the guide and driver did their best to complete the tour on time
and to get us back to the pier for the tender ride back to the ship. There was a series of 3 hikes, but none I would label strenuous. The guide gave us the option for an extended hike at the last
stop on the tour, for those who wanted to do so instead of going to the post office. Very satisfied with the pre-cruise communication and the actual tour. I would recommend Ushu Transandino for
anyone traveling to this area of the world.
N. Milns (lunes, 06 marzo 2017 09:22)
Very efficient and well organised Post Cruise tour incorporating Vina Del Mar, Valparaiso then Santiago town with guest drop offs at both hotels and airport as required.
English speaking tour guide with great local knowledge and experienced driver who always managed to find the best parking places and who ensured all our luggage remained safe during the trip
Graeme M. (martes, 07 febrero 2017 15:33)
We booked our Ushuaia and Montevideo tours with Edgar well in advance of our January cruise around South America. Edgar was very quick to respond to our requests and kept our group organized with
updated lists and prices as our tour group grew larger or smaller. We booked the 4 hour tour to Tierra Del Fuego in Ushuaia and were assigned Gabriel as our guide. His English was very good and he
and the driver took great care looking after us. The tour included very short and easy walks in the National Park. Our guide, Herbert, in Montevideo was also excellent. We had booked the 5 hour City
& BBQ tour. Little did we know that the BBQ portion of the tour would actually be at his home. The menu was prepared by Herbert, his wife and daughter and the food and wines were amazing. We
could not have asked for a better spent afternoon.
Ruth Ch. (miércoles, 01 febrero 2017 17:53)
I personally would like to thank you for making our experience a fantastic one. Gabriel, Hebert, Elisabet were all wonderful! I also appreciate your excellent organization and generosity toward
myself and my husband.
Martin F. (miércoles, 25 enero 2017 18:37)
We had a day in Ushuaia while cruising South American ports and booked this tour with Edgar. Our guide Adriana was quite worldly herself having lived in Australia and learned to speak excellent
English. She explained the sights and answered all our questions. We went to the post office at the end of the world and walked through the National Park.
We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it to anyone travelling in Ushuaia. Edgar was wonderful to deal with and gave us helpful advice when we booked the tour.
Eloise K. (martes, 24 enero 2017 16:16)
We visited the park, during a cruise ship stop Edgar responded to all emails promptly and gave clear meeting instructions. Our guide, Juan, was very informative and spoke English well. We very much
enjoyed our tour.
Mary H. (martes, 24 enero 2017 14:58)
One word only - fantastic!
Your guides and drivers were knowledgeable, professional and courteous.
It was an amazing experience. The two trips that we booked, were by far the best experiences we encountered.
My only regret is that I didn't book more tours with your company!
If I ever have the opportunity to visit South America again, I will be in touch.
Meanwhile if I know of anyone who is planning this trip, I will advise them of your services.
Thank you so much for inquiring.
J. Cayce (domingo, 25 diciembre 2016 22:21)
We booked a tour to the National Park while in port on a cruise. We were met by Juan and he gave us a great tour of the area. He is very into the nature of the area and made the visit very
interesting. My wife is handicapped and he was very helpful in making sure she could participate to...
P. Ein (domingo, 25 diciembre 2016 22:20)
We booked a tour as we were in Ushuaia on a cruise. Edgar sent an excellent guide, Juan, who made the tour to the National Park a memorable experience. Thanks to him and to Edgar for providing this
r09travel (lunes, 16 mayo 2016 20:20)
Very pleased with tour experience. Edgar was easy and clear to communicate with; addressed all questions and left nothing to doubt. Tour guide Gabriel did a superb job. His English was not only
strong, but it was technically deep as well, including a large number of words in the scientific and technical realm as they related to the geography, flora, and fauna of the region. Gabriel and his
driver met us flawlessly at the port, and took us on a memorable tour of the harbor, the town, and then the region, including its a number of its breathtaking vistas.
Photographs simply do not do this region any justice; the place is gorgeous. Bring a waterproof rain parka to keep the ever-present drizzle off, but otherwise, don't be bothered by any weather
conditions; they will likely change within an hour or so. Although, it will almost certainly remain pretty cold, no matter the month.
Ushuaia, while definitely a beautiful place, is wrapped in the veneer of an extremely expensive tourist town, targeted for the wealthy jet-set who have the place on their to-do list. Be rightfully
wary of that fact when you visit, and be especially judicious before laying your money out against the first things you see. Be especially selective; there are other shops, and indeed, other towns,
that will present better value for your money. However, definitely don't avoid Ushuaia: here nature, though, is the undisputed star. Tierra del Fuego National Park, Lapataia River and Bay, Roca Lake,
Ensenada Bay; they are all must-sees.
Reebster (lunes, 16 mayo 2016 20:11)
I wanted to see a few very specific attractions during my way-too-short cruise stop, but Edgar offered a tour package that checked off all of the items on my list. I found some friends online to help
offset the cost of the tour. It was absolutely worth it. The guide was smart and able to answer all of our questions. He hit every high point and had us back in plenty of time. I would definitely
book through here again.
K. Gillam (domingo, 24 abril 2016 19:14)
We all enjoyed our tour in Ushuaia. It is a beautiful area. Our guide and driver were excellent - they did a great job getting us to each area before the large cruise ship buses arrived. We wouldn't
have been able to experience the peacefulness of the park had we arrived at the same time as a bus-load of people. The tour guide was patient and very informative.
Norman K. (domingo, 24 abril 2016 19:14)
The Tour we took with Edgar Tour group 3/19,2016 was excellent and his employees did a great job. The van was comfortable, everyone was on time, the driver was very careful. Our tour guide (sorry, I
do not remember his name} spoke clearly and loudly and his English is excellent. He provided us with information about the city, current events, environmental concerns as well as the hot topics of
tourist gossip and information. The trip into the park was quick followed by many great photo opportunities. In weather started out with a little drizzle but then cleared up to a cool and eventually
dry day. The lunch (not included) with bathroom break was well timed. The Gift Shop at the lunch stop was WAY over priced. The trip to the Post Office at the End of the Earth was a treat. We were
also well taken care of in town where the guide happily helped us find a reputable money changer and then accommodated our different small group needs and let us off the van to go our separate ways.
We had plenty of time to tour the city and to do some quality shopping. Edgar is a dedicated business owner and followed up on our tour experience. I would highly recommend this company and
definitely want to thank our fellow passengers Barbara and Norm for their extensive research on Cruise Critic and and for sharing with us this excellent company.
Jigger B. (miércoles, 13 abril 2016 21:39)
What a find! We used Edgar's services in Montevideo (City Tour & BBQ) and in Ushuaia (we had four full vans for the Half day trip to Tierra del Fuego National Park).
His communication is tops - price more than fair - the guides were great and the vehicles comfortable. You will not do better.
A note about our Montevideo City Tour and BBQ. DO IT...we are all still talking about what a great day this was. Our guide, Herbert, and his family are the most gracious hosts and the meal was about
the best we had the entire cruise. Plus, on the way back to the ship, Herbert took us to a local wine store where we all loaded up on wines to bring back on board (Tannat, one of the wines he served,
was a whopping $6 a bottle).
Susan R. (jueves, 03 marzo 2016 20:28)
Our tour in Ushuaia was wonderful. Our tour guide/driver was knowledgeable and we all were very impressed with the tour.
I will recommend your company to my friends.
Our tour in Montevideo was also wonderful. Our guide, Alicia was great. Best of all, was the barbecue we attended. We didn't expect to go to a private home.
We just loved it. The family was so welcoming like we were long lost relatives. The food was delicious and there was more than enough. Everyone agreed that this was the best afternoon.
Again,, I will highly recommend your company. Thank you
Guy and Maria (jueves, 03 marzo 2016 20:12)
Just returned from our Celebrity Infinity cruise to Antarctica with a stop in Ushuaia on Feb 18, 2016. With Edgar's help we got a group of 13 of us from our CC thread to do the visit to the Tierra
del Fuego National Park with Hiking. It's Option #3 for Ushuaia on their web site. tourguideushuaia.net
Our guide, Gaston, was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. He was a generous guide, sharing all kinds of interesting information about the location, history, fauna and flora. Our driver,
and I could kick myself for forgetting his name, was also very knowledgeable and his English was also excellent. How often does this happen? They were great.
The place is beautiful, the air a pleasure to breathe, the ground is mostly soft and flat and the hikes are broken up into three segments, and the leisurely walking is at the speed of the slowest in
the group so there's not any short breathness at all. There are a few spots, I think three short spots, where you have to do a bit of climbing over rocks in inclined ground. In our group only one
lady needed help with those and Gaston was there to provide it. I think we all felt grateful to not have physical limitations that would have prevented us from enjoying this mostly secluded walk in
the woods. Still, we're in our 70's with knee replacements and more than a few pounds overweight.
We were mostly on our own, away from the hordes of bused cruise ship passengers. We saw a fuegian red fox, a pair of enormous Magellanic woodpeckers, the big show-off male with its red head who
pecked away for the benefit of our cameras until we eventually just moved on, and lots of other birds, ducks and geese.
The weather was cool to chilly, layers worked well, we got some light rain. My light rain jacket was perfect for it. I took it off and put it away in my backpack when I didn't need it.
On the way back to the ship most of us asked to be dropped off in the "downtown" area for a bit of sight seeing/shopping on our own.
Finally, do not, for any reason, miss doing this: Drink a cup of hot chocolate that you will never, ever forget. We drank ours at the Laguna Negra, but I suspect any of those chocolaterias on that
street must serve this most outstanding and delicious hot chocolotate. (And it will cost you less than $3 USD! - ridiculous.)
All in all, a day doesn't get much more perfect than that.
Thank you, Edgar!
Johanna, CA (jueves, 18 febrero 2016 21:09)
If you're looking to spend an enjoyable, informative and fun day in lovely Tierra del Fuego National Park in Ushuaia, Edgar is your man. We had a very enlightening day with him. He's extremely
personable, knowledgeable and interesting and made the time we spent together very special. We highly recommend him and know you'll appreciate his expertise as did we.
A. Dushant (jueves, 14 enero 2016 20:07)
Thank you so much for all the tours you arranged for us. All 3 ports were fantastic. The tour guides were great and showed up on time.
Montevideo tour guide was fantastic and his BBQ at his home was delicious and the family was very courteous and made us feel at home.
Over all great tours and thank you for your good service. I have recommended you to our friends to consider your tour company.
P. Ansley (lunes, 11 enero 2016 20:16)
From the start emails with Edgar were easy and returned promptly. As our initial group of 6 or so grew to almost 20 while we onboard NCL Sun Edgar was eager to please us. He added a van to our bus so
that he could accommodate a wheelchair and scooter.
We were met as notified and quickly boarded our waiting vehicles. Edgar is a good English speaker and shared lots of information about his county and Ushuaia with us.
Our tour included a viewpoint near the airport, city tour, National Park with stops at the End of the Pan-Am road and the Southern most Post Office & Lighthouse. We took a short but powerfully
beautiful walk on an easy pathway in the park. The tour end with Edgar guiding us in the Prison Museum then dropping some pax in town to shop and returning others to the cruise dock.
A very enjoyable day and a super value compared to similar tours from the ship.
C. Thorpe (lunes, 16 marzo 2015 20:34)
Loved it! 5 star and Juan was fanastic. Going to send detail email when I get home in a few weeks.
Again great to work with you and the tour was wonderful
P. Harper (lunes, 16 marzo 2015 20:30)
We definitely enjoyed the experience and will certainly recommend your company to those visiting your area. Service was excellent.
N. Genesius (lunes, 09 marzo 2015 16:39)
Sergio was very good. We enjoyed the tour very much.
He was very professional and knowledgeable and we would recommend his tour on cruise critic.
L. & B. Kay (domingo, 08 marzo 2015 18:45)
Hello Edgardo, I would just like to let you know briefly that Barry and I really enjoy our tour. Our guide Sergio and Alberto the driver were wonderful and I'd do not know of any improvements. The
guide had great knowledge and we loved our gentle hike through the park. Also appreciated the water. Thank you so much.
C & M Fee (domingo, 08 marzo 2015 18:39)
We had a really enjoyable tour of Tierra Del Fuego with your company. Our driver was Juan and he was a friendly, informative guide who did all he could to make our trip memorable. We would
wholeheartedly recommend both your company and your guide as our experience in Ushuaia was excellent.
E. Gottlich (domingo, 01 marzo 2015 10:01)
The tour exceeded my expectations. I was very pleased with the guide and the itinery. I would not change a thing
Thank you for making my stay in Ushuaia so enjoyable
J. Ramsay (domingo, 01 marzo 2015 09:57)
We were in the right van and had a great guide and a wonderful trip. We greatly enjoyed the whole trip and would be ready to recommend it to anyone that I know is going that way.
Thank you for a wonderful tour of your great country.
B.Levy (miércoles, 25 febrero 2015 17:58)
We are just back from South America
We enjoyed very much our excursion with your co.
Our guide was very informative and passionate about Patagonia and we learned much from him. We enjoyed the National Park. It's a beautiful area with stunning scenery.
Thanks for making our trip to Argentina so memorable
We would not hesitate to recommend you
Adios and hasta la vista
F.Turnner (lunes, 23 febrero 2015 20:19)
We are finally at home now after a really amazing trip in South America.
My sister and I were very pleased with our tour with you. We particularly liked being in the natural beauty of the National Park. The hot chocolate at the coffee shop at Roca Lake was very delicious
and most welcome. The photo opportunities and the bird life on the short walk to the shop were great. I do not think anyone missed photographing the distance sign at the end of the Panamerican
highway. The bus was comfortable even though we drove mostly on unmade roads. Our guide was very informative and passionate about his country, we learned a great deal.
Thank you for providing us with such a good tour.
Claudia Ross (jueves, 19 febrero 2015 14:41)
We had a FABULOUS day in your beautiful city (and National Park) with Gabriel. Thank you for being a TRUE professional. Communication with you before (and after) our cruise was perfect and our entire
group was thrilled with our excursion. I truly believe this was one of our favorite port stops thanks to you.
We wish you many years of successful "guiding."
Sue Daleiden (domingo, 15 febrero 2015 17:17)
The tour was great! Our guide, (Juan) was very knowledgeable and pointed out so many things we would otherwise have missed. It was truly a beautiful place and we are so happy we were able to visit.
Bev Sandelman (martes, 27 enero 2015 14:51)
We just returned to the ship and I wanted to let you know that our tour was fabulous! The guide was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable and full of great information. He was so kind and helpful,
taking many photos of our group and stopping when we asked him to for photo opportunities. This was a very good day for all of us in Ushuaia and I wanted to let you know we were all exceedingly happy
with the tour. Thanks again for all of your kindness and help.
Annete Leung (miércoles, 07 enero 2015 19:15)
Dear Sr. Calaio,
Our trip in Ushuaia was excellent. The Guide Juan was fantastic with all his knowledge about the sights we visited and his excitement for the region we visited. He explained everything and answered
many questions well. I can't think of anything to improve this tour. It was perfect for us.
Thank you for providing this absolutely wonderful tour for us and making it one of the best tours we experienced on our South America Cruise.
Susan Burby (martes, 30 diciembre 2014 07:57)
We had a great time in Ushuaia and got lots of positive feedback from the group. Juan was a wonderful guide and we had similar comments from the rest of the group when it came to Juan. Thank you!
Lind Curran (viernes, 26 diciembre 2014 19:14)
I want to congratulate you on your tour guides. The lady you gave us was delightful. Knowledgeable, interesting and obviously loves what she does. It was money well spent and I will certainly refer
you to others who wish to do a Ushuaia tour in the future. I also will be recommending your tour services on Trip Advisor.
Linda Indovina (jueves, 11 diciembre 2014 02:16)
We really enjoyed the tour and Gabriel was a very good and informative guide.
Everyone told me they were happy they took the tour.
The walks were very interesting and mostly away from the big tour bus crowds
La Vonne J. (martes, 09 diciembre 2014 19:57)
Sorry it took so long to tell you how wonderful our day with Gabriel was in Ushuaia. He is an amazing young man with excellent English. He is knowledgable in all areas: the history of the native
peoples, the historical sites, the botany and the animals, he explained the use of the plants for medicine how the Europeans destroyed the native people with their "help" in clothing them. Gabriel
was an excellent driver. He safely accommodated our requests to stop for pictures. He explained the government and the ability of the government to care for the people well because of the natural
resources in petroleum and natural gas. Although the Universities are excellent and well attended, very few people stay after graduation because of the climate. Gabriel explained that he is 3rd
generation Japanese - my companions are 1st and 2nd generation Japanese (over 45 years now in the US/Hawaii).
I am only sad that your company cannot advertise in a more successful way to find customers from the cruise ships. Many of the people I met after our stop in Ushuaia toured by bus and were unhappy -
too many people, not enough time to stop where they had wished to stop and they missed the archaeological site because the driver did not walk with them.
Thank you again. Please tell Gabriel how blessed we feel to have spent the day with him. It is our Day of Thanksgiving in the United States and I am very thankful for having Gabriel become part of my
life's journey. Safe travels and blessings to you and your family and friends.
Mary MR (martes, 01 abril 2014 06:47)
Just back from the South America and will catch up in a couple of days and will write a formal review, but Gabriel was a great guide and his genuine love for the area around Ushuaia came through in
As the weather was turning and you reduced the tour price for not going up the chairlift, Group #2 was very happy with their tour!
Judith Kornitsky (martes, 01 abril 2014 06:43)
Hi Edgar -the tour of Ushuaia was wonderful. The guide did a great job and we enjoyed it and learned so much. I would definitely recommend it - Thank you again
Lesley Stumbles (domingo, 30 marzo 2014 09:02)
I really enjoyed your tour particularly the way you managed to avoid all the big tour groups. I will make sure to recommend you on Trip Advisor and Cruise Critic particularly. I have also passed your
details to friends travelling on Zandaam departing BA tomorrow for the reverse trip.
Thank you again for a wonderful introduction to Ushuaia the most beautiful city on our cruise.
Joanie Madden (viernes, 28 marzo 2014 09:20)
The tour in Ushuaia was very satisfactory, other than the chair lift being out of service and not being able to go to the glacier. Our guide, Cecilia, was personable and knowledgeable. The park, of
course, is spectacular as were all the other sights seen. Since we had additional time after the tour due to the lift being out of order, my husband and I walked around the town and did a bit of
shopping and had a pint at the local Irish Pub. Beautiful place!
We would definitely recommend your tour to others.
Sondra Keatley (sábado, 22 marzo 2014 08:21)
We all really enjoyed the Tierra del Fuego National Park tour with our very knowledgeable guide Gabriel. He was ready and waiting for us at the port exit and even went out of his way to help a couple
of geocachers in our group locate a cache! The weather was certainly in our favour which made the trip even more enjoyable. Ushuaia is beautiful. How fortunate you are to live in such a lovely part
of the world.
Thanks for a great excursion.
H.Wong (sábado, 22 marzo 2014 08:14)
We enjoyed our tour very much in Ushuaia. I was very glad that it was a very nice day and that it was not windy as well. That made me really enjoy the city very much that as it was very
I will have to agree with you that it is much more nicer in Ushuaia than in Buenos Aires.
Yes, I would recommend the tour to other guests. It is always very nice to hear a lot of information about a place where we have not visited before. I would recommend providing as much information as
possible about your city throughout the tour.
A. Jelley (viernes, 14 marzo 2014 11:48)
I just wanted to give you some feedback on our excursion with you on the above date.
Our guide that day was Nadia. Everyone on the bus said that she was first class. Very knowledgeable about the local area and answered all the questions that were asked of her.
The tour itself up the Glacier was memorable in so much as it snowed while we were going up on the ski lift!
Excellent views from the top.
The trip to the Tierra Del Fuego National Park was also good. Plenty of things to see and do with lots of stops for photo's.
Overall we all really enjoyed the excursion, thanks again to Nadia.

Thank you Edgar for the wonderful tour provided to our group of 34 people. Gabriel was an excellent guide and managed to avoid the cruise-ship buses all day, making for a smooth tour. The chair lift
to the glacier was one of the highlights, as were the stops in the national park for the fantastic views and walks. I can highly recommend your company!!

We enjoyed the tour greatly. Both Gabriel and the driver were wonderful and others in the group expressed their thanks to me for helping get the group together.

We arrived in Ushuaia on a cruise ship traveling from Rio to Valparaiso, and had planned in advance with five other passengers (with whom we'd connected online via the cruise critic website) to take
a private van tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park with Edgardo Calaio [edgardo calaio at gmail dot com]. Edgardo is a wonderful, experienced, young guide, with a university degree in tourism, and
particular interests in nature and photography. He met us at our ship, and as we rode to and through the Park in his very comfortable van, he told us (in a pleasant low-key way) iabout Ushuaia and
Tierra del Fuego. In the Park, he took us to the major sights, inclding the bay where the (true) Post Office at the End of the World is located on stilt posts out over the water. (We had our
passports attractively stamped there.) We also visited a small, free, museum at a spacious lakeside cafe, where we learned about the original inhabitants. Our final stop was at the famous sign
marking the end of the Pan American Highway which runs about 30,000 miles from Northern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. (We were lucky to arrive at the same time as an adventurous Danish couple who took
7 months to ride the whole highway on motorcycles.) The park is a peaceful natural place of lakes, greenery and mountain views. We were fortunate to see a peregrine falcon, a stunning kingfisher, and
some unusual swans with their young.). Though this was high summer (January), the place has extremely harsh winters and not many species make home there. After our visit to the Park, Edgardo took us
to the town and pointed out some interesting shops at our request (we purchased chocolate, crafts, and wine). For those wishing to see other sites, Edgardo also offers a 6-hour tour to Fagnano and
Hidden Lakes (across the Andes), and a full-day tour, combining all of the above. Our 4-hour Park tour was engaging, relaxing, and a great value.

We got to Ushuaia late and got off the ship at 2:45pm, after being trampled by unruly passengers who felt entitled to push, shove, and cut into the line which was kept so well by staff members Theo
and Veronica. I felt sorry for them, every time they turned their back a slew of people took the non manned stairs down to deck 4 where disembarkation took place. They could not manage the large
crowd alone, Princess should have provided more staff to man each elevator and staircase like they do in muster. Getting off a ship mid day is always chaos. I heard horror stories about people in
princess tours as well as private tours. Be prepared for this!
Our guide Gaston was there as we walked off the ship and saw the beauty of this port, our first stop in Argentina. Surrounded with snow capped Andes mountains and the Beagle channel, this town touts
itself as the southern most city in the world. It is the starting point for ships like the National Geographic Expedition's journey to Antarctica. The ship was in port in front of our ship and across
the dock was Celebrity which has followed us everywhere. Ushuaia (pronounced oo-swy-ah, not oo-shwy-ah like I had been saying) is considered the end of the South American world; interestingly it is
not as south as Fairbanks, Alaska is north.
We headed out of town to visit the National Park of Tierra del Fuego, a beautiful wilderness of forests, rivers, and green meadows typical of the steppes. We stopped at several scenic points for
hikes and lakes, including the end of the Panamerican highway where the famous sign indicates the distance between here and Alaska. This was a pretty impressive place, with a boardwalk that takes you
out to beautiful lake. As we headed through the park Gaston suddenly stopped the van, he spotted some woodpeckers and we slowly crept toward then with cameras in hand. We encountered several, males
with their red heads and females all in black, and I was able to video them in action pecking at the trees. We started to leave when Gaston spied a red fox up the road. The red fox was not afraid of
us, in fact it was clear it was waiting for food and sure enough, another car filled with visitors started throwing food out to get it to come closer. This is a terrible thing to do, these animals
should not be so close to humans and Gaston ran up to them and told then just this. They quickly picked up all the food and were off, thankfully. This was an awesome animal encounter marred only by
the stupidity of those people!
Next we headed to the park headquarters that housed a nice museum, lookout point, restaurant, and gift shop that was way overpriced. We used the facilities and took off for the "end of the world"
post office where I got a passport with several stamps for 3 dollars. This was a great photograph spot, the post office was on a small pier in a wonderful glacial lake.
As we drove through the park, we spotted a lot of hawk like birds, especially in the campgrounds. We even found several RVs, giving birth to an idea of driving our Winnebago down here! We probably
would never want to drive through Colombia, and that leg of the Panamerican highway is accessed by a ferry, which probably doesn’t take 30 foot RVs! As we headed back to Ushuaia, we saw the most
southern Golf course in the world, and there were people playing on it. One of our last stops was a spot near the airport where we had great views of our ship in the port, this always being an
important photo opportunity for us! Finally we arrived in Ushuaia, we drove down the main shopping street and Gaston showed us where the best Rhodocrosite shop was as well as the wine shop, and
market. This was the end of a nice half-day tour.
We paid $65pp for the tour plus $20 each for the park entrance fee. We used firstname.lastname@example.org to book this tour and enjoyed it very much. Gaston was our tour guide and he was very good.
Shopping in Ushuaia is expensive, especially for stuff you can get in North America. The Rhodochrosite here is very nice, it's the national rock and unique to Argentina. I found a good shop called
Inca Rose which is on the main shopping street, go left when heading up from the port, it's on the far side of the street (right side) after you turn left. I also found some good semi-sweet Chocolate
that was made here and a decent price, there are many places to buy that.

We did a custom tour in Ushuaia with Edgar in January 2012 that included a tour of the Tierra del Fuego National Park (including several small hikes, one around a lake and one to a viewpoint and the
end of the Panamerican highway), and the chair lift to Martial Glacier. This tour did take almost the entire time we had in Ushuaia but we like to spend most of our time ashore touring rather than
buying souvenirs. We spent about 1 to 1 1/2 hours at the glacier. There were some in our group that were fit enough to hike to/from the glacier in that time. It was a very nice tour and the weather
in Ushuaia was wonderful.

Mensaje: With five other cc's, we arranged for a tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park with Edgardo Calaio [email@example.com]Edgardo is a young, highly professional tour guide with a
university degree in tourism and particular interests in nature and photography. His tour was an excellent value and a comfortable ride as we rode (literally) to the End of the World. Highlights
were: visiting at a small free museum (at a cafe) where we learned about the original inhabitants; getting our passports stamped at the curious Post Office at the End of the World (which hangs over a
bay on stilt posts); arriving at the sign marking the end of the Pan American Highway which runs from Northern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. We arrived at a lucky moment--when an adventurous Danish
couple also arrived on motorcycle after riding the 30,000 mile highway for 7 months. After visiting the Park, Edgardo drove us through the town; we loaded up on chocolate, crafts, and, of course,

-“Hi Edgar, we had a fantastic experience, your partner was knowledgeable, personable, entertaining and he made our day in Ushuaia a very memorable and enjoyable one. We were able to do some walking
in the national park which we enjoy and we learned a lot about the area. I would highly recommend you and your guides.”

We had a wonderful tour with one of Edgardo Calaio's group of tour guides December 28, 2012 in Ushuaia Argentina.
We were a group of 14 from the Star Princess. Our guide had a well prepared speech. He passed around items/pictures during the bus ride. The small bus was very comfortable with an aisle down the
middle of the bus for easy ingress and egress. Any walking we did I would rate as easy. The National Park is a must to see. Even though we were there on a rainy day it is a beautiful park.
I would definitely recommend Edgar guides.
