What people are saying about Ushuaia
We were picked up from our hotel, the contact and pick times were clearly communicated. We thought we paid for a train tour and the park tour but that was not the case. We had to pay extra at the train in local currency. The train had an automated tour with earbuds. I thought it was well done, the scenery was beautiful. There is a stop and you can walk up a series of staircases to a waterfall & buy pictures. It’s touristy & we loved the picture of the prisoner trying to steal a back pack! The tour guide, Maria, was amazing. She worked hard townspeople pictures, answer questions and share info. The first stop in the park is the post office. It was closed and as we pulled away it opened. That is why it’s not 5 stars & the train tickets being extra. There was time at each stop to explore and walk around. Nice overview!
We enjoyed the park and the train ride with the accompanying commentary about the activities of the convicts and the early beginnings of the park. We did not enjoy being questioned as to whether or not we had paid for the train when our information said we had. There has to be better communication between the Tour sellers And the service that runs them. Suppliers of the tours need to make it known from the very outset what the additional fees will be and how much they are and how they can be paid ( credit or cash).
It's a long trek ( if you are not a trekker) and requires waterproof boots, most of the trek is on damp and Marsh soli. The alternative you are offered of cheap rubber boots is not very good. The ones my wife used were ruptured and they don't give you a good support. You will need trekking poles, but they are provided by the operator. Other than these operating issues it was very nice trek with very beautiful scenary.
We mostly went on the trip to watch seabirds and it was amazing for that. We brought binoculars and were able to see a number of species. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and helpful and enthusiastic and we had a great time. Also we saw whales.
Since it had been raining quite a bit the walk in to the lake was A bit challenging due to the amount of mud on the trail But our guide was great in keeping everyone together and enjoying the experience. The hike itself is lovely!
