“This tour surpassed all my expectations. Patagonia was definitely the highlight for everyone on the trip. The landscapes are utterly breathtaking. Every stop we made you think you have just seen the best view the park had to offer and then you would go to a different part of the park and be blown away. Every turn unveiled something even more beautiful than before …”

“Thanks Go Ahead for an extraordinary trip. My first trip in a group tour, since I used to travel by myself. Jorge is a top of the line Tour Director. He guided this tour with full knowledge of the places visited and at the same time made us feel like family travelling together …”

“Patagonia was definitely the highlight of the tour. Torres Del Paine, the Perito Moreno Glacier and the penguin island were exceptional … This was my third trip with GoAhead and my favorite so far. I look forward to traveling with them again and seeing more of the world’s wonders.”

“… Emiliano, our Tour Director, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and helped us every step of the way. This is a bucket-list trip and highly recommend it to anyone who is considering exploring this part of the world!”

“I have just returned from my first trip to South America. Of course I am riding high on the energy and memories of this trip, but it has given me a new level of adventure and daring that I don’t think I had before. There is something very life affirming about seeing animals and nature in their natural setting. I am basically a city girl and have seen most animals in a zoo. To see penguins and sea lions in their natural habitat was a thrilling experience. I am a food and wine type of trip person and also history and art. I challenged myself on this trip and I was greatly rewarded for venturing out of my comfort zone. This was one of my favorite trips because of the people, the wildlife, and the new experiences. To be in the immediate presence of the Perito Moreno Glacier is life changing.”

“This was an exceptional tour. It exceeded my expectations. Every day was packed with amazing sights and sounds and we had a great group. Everyone got along very well and almost every meal (scheduled or not) was a group event and it was wonderful. Our tour director Jorge was great and extremely personable …”

” … The food selection was incredible. Our Tour Director made sure we tasted the region specialties. And the sightseeing tours were fascinating—from Valparaiso and the wine tour up to the Perito Moreno Glacier. Looking forward to jumping into my next adventure …”
