Oh what a fantastic day we had with Gaston in the most southern national park of the world! He was enthusiastic about the region and loved sharing the national park with us. He navigated the crowds and managed to get us to places where the crowds were minimal. He shared the all-important nature and geography of the region and also shared stories of what it is like to live in Ushuaia! We can't recommend Gaston highly enough....he was an outstanding guide!

Gaston is a kind caring assiduous knowledgeable man and guide. Full of pride and facts about the remote South of Argentina and a reliable ornithologist who found unusual birds for us. Anyone who selects Gaston as their guide is fortunate. Best wishes to Gaston and his family. Nick.

We were in port for only a few hours and Gaston, our guide, made the most of those hours. He was pleasant and informative. Our desire was to see the National Park which he immediately took us to. He made sure we had an opportunity to get out and walk during our tour. If there was something we wanted to see, that was not scheduled, he had no problem accommodating our wishes. On the way back to port he drove us through town and surrounding areas to give us a flavor of the area. He was excellent!!

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.
