A Recent Review of this tour

Gaston gave us a fabulous day. He met us in the port with our name clearly displayed in the window of his van so that we easily found him. We particularly wanted to see Magellanic Woodpecker and Austral Pygmy Owl, and he found both for us, as well as a range of other bird species. He was also an excellent botanist and we were delighted to be shown some of the characteristic plants and trees of the area. Gaston was great company, spoke excellent English and our day with him was a highlight of our holiday.
