We hired Gaston to show us Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego Park and had a wonderful day. Gaston was knowledgeable about the area, answered all our questions and was very easy to understand. He also was able to plan our tour so that we were ahead of large bus tours and could enjoy the areas in relative quiet. With a smaller vehicle we were able to stop at smaller scenic areas for pictures. Gaston also drove us through several neighborhoods and recommended a good coffee shop in town with yummy scones.

Gaston picked us up at the cruise terminal in a newer, clean and roomy van. He provided us with water and went the extra mile to see that we had a comfortable custom tour of Tierra del Fuego. When one area was too busy with people, we left and came back later when it was less crowded. When we wanted some exercise, we hiked a bit through woods, around lakes, and up to a visitor center. He even helped us navigate town, recommending restaurants and shops. He spoke perfect English. Highly recommend.

We had an absolutely wonderful day with Gaston. We had six and the vehicle was very nice, clean and comfortable. Gaston met us at our hotel and graciously welcomed us and continued to impress us with his friendly and interactive tour of the beautiful parks, lakes and general area surrounding Ushaia. I would highly recommend Gaston to ensure you get the person and tour you are looking for.

Fabulous and fun day with Gaston. Great communication prior to arrival. Gaston is a pleasure to spend the day with and showed us as much as we could possibly have seen of this gorgeous area during our cruise ship stop. We could not have planned a better day! Very comfortable van. Excellent English! Excellent knowledge of the area and Gaston knows all the ins and outs to avoid the crowds. Thanks for a great day! Highly recommend hiring Gaston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Wendy!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your kind words

We had a little challenge finding Gaston getting off the ship (not his fault but confusion on where we were coming off by the ship) but connected via cell phone and got started right away. Gaston had a very clean and comfortable vehicle and we quickly made our way to Tierra del Fuego to beat most of our Celebrity ship tours. We really enjoyed the walks in nature and probably would have preferred more time to enjoy the beauty. We then saw the highlights of the city and were left off in town by our request.

We had a great day with Gaston. He was very knowledgeable about Ushuaia and he had a true love for his town and country. It was great that he would rearrange our stops according to how many large tour busses were at the stop. That way we would avoid being there with large amounts of people. I would totally recommend Gaston to anyone who is visiting Ushuaia.

Gaston was wonderful. He was considerate, funny, and very knowledgeable. The vehicle was perfect, plenty of room, so we were very comfortable. Some of the roads we drove on were very dusty, so at one point, Gaston, washed the windows so that we would have a clear view to take pictures. He is an excellent tour guide. I highly recommend him

We highly recommend Gaston to be your tour guide. A very pleasant, knowledgeable individual who is fluent in English as well. We are so grateful as he did more than we could expect. We met him as soon we stepped off the cruise on 02/07/2019, while he had a clear plastic folder and printed my name on it while he drove slowly along the ship. Our arrival in the NP was early before the big buses with crowd arrived and allow us to enjoy the tranquility and stunning beauty of the NP with the birds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Tierra del Fuego with Gaston. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made sure we got all the photos that we wanted and never rushed us at all. He answered all of our many questions and catered the tour to our likes, dislikes, and abilities. We would definitely recommend him to others.

This tour was excellent. Gaston took us to several locations where he knew many of the passerine species (small bush birds) would be present. These locations were both within and outside the national park and covered a range of terrestrial and aquatic habitats, which enabled us to observe a large number of species. We also had the opportunity to photograph many species at a leisurely pace. The transportation was excellent and Gaston's wealth of knowledge was first-class. Highly recommended.

Gaston provided us with a very interesting, educational, and fun tour of Ushuaia and the Tierra del Fuego National Park area. He was very engaging and well versed in the history, culture and natural resources of the region. He was very knowledgeable regarding the area's birds and wildlife, and is appropriately passionate about their conservation. A first rate customized tour at a pleasant pace and with insights that only a local could provide. Would recommend him to anyone visiting Tierra del Fuego.

Gaston was an excellent tour guide and gave us a real Ushuaia experience. We loved visiting the winter arena and playing with the huskies. It was one of the highlights of our South America trip! If you are a dog lover - you will truly appreciate this unique experience. We also were blown away by the scenic views and history of the area. We felt very fortunate to have such an incredible knowledgeable guide to show us around and make our visit so memorable.

If you are looking for someone with a true passion for "birding" you will not go wrong with Gaston. He picked us up at the dock and took us first for some sightseeing around the town in Ushuaia, Argentina . . . and then drove us to Tierra Del Fuego (a National Park) for an outstanding bird-watching expedition (carrying his scope) through the park. He then drove us to another lake/river area for more birding before taking us back to the ship after a tremendous day. Thanks Again -- Ron, Judy, Maureen, Jim

Gaston was simply fantastic in every way. Very prompt with pickup and a careful driver. He took time to explain features of the area and wildlife including backing up the vehicle because we thought we'd seen a beaver! He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about wildlife and the region. He really brought the area alive for us and made it a very enjoyable excursion. i have no hesitation in recommending him. Thank you Gaston!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for your kind comment Carol, I am very happy when people like you really enjoy the tours. All the best
