“Everything went according to plan, on time, on budget, exceeding expectations.

Mario prepared a fantastic tailored made plan to visit Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) - Perito Moreno mini-trekking, El Calafate, Puerto Natales, Torres del Paine trekking. It was an unforgettable experience. All required transfers, tours, transportation, accommodation were planned by Mário and nothing failed. In fact, it really exceeded all expectations! For sure will contact again - incredibly beautiful places organized by a super professional team.”
