Our guide José was wonderful! Exactly what you want from a private guide experience. Very glad we took the tour with him in this great countryside. His passion for nature and and for the Bariloche region - combined with the detailed knowledge he willingly shared - really made our visit one to be remembered. Highly recommended!
