Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

Hello Maria and Good Morning Clara & Carolina
We’ve now been back in New Zealand for more than a week and it still seems a bit as though the past 3 weeks have all been a dream!!
We had an absolutely fantastic time and I can assure you that all of the group thoroughly enjoyed their experience in your diverse country !
And it’s all thanks to you at ‘Team Across South Amercia’ facilitated first by Letitia and then Carolina!! Everything you did for us worked seamlessly and that was due to the extra effort you applied to the organisation of every last detail…
We very much appreciated the professionalism and friendliness of all of your guides and transfer drivers from Day 1 until we arrived at EZE to come home.
Too many outstanding things to mention individually but many, many thanks for everything you did for us and if you have an ‘official’ questionnaire that needs to be filled out please send it to me saspo and I will get it back to you by return…
Clara, it was great to meet you, albeit briefly, and if you are married now we hope everything went well…if not , then we hope that you have a wonderful day when it happens and we can one day meet here in Auckland or in BA??!!
Carolina, a pity that we weren’t able to get together but we hope that you are now 100% and definitely not still confined to bed??!! Our very best wishes for the birth of your baby and I know at some time I will be back in BA so hopefully we may have an opportunity to meet then? Or maybe you can get down here?
Happy Easter to all of you!

This was by far the best vacation I have ever taken. It was so well-organized. Kris, our CEO was delightful to work with. More about Kris later, I hope. I've traveled with other groups before and I must say that even while I was in Patagonia, I was planning my next trip with G Adventures. I will be your most ardent ambassador. I just have one comment about your booking process and again, hopefully, I'll have a chance to share that later in the survey. Much improvement is needed there.

I want to go back tomorrow! I want to take another trip with G Adventures. I want to tell all of my friends about G Adventures. If I could buy stock in G Adventures I would. I don't know what more to say.

A stunning trek in the Torres del Paine of Chile and the Fitzroy region of Argentina. As the trip notes suggest you will not be disappointed with the landscape and views within the two regions visited. We were really lucky with the weather and managed to see all the breath taking aspects possible.
Climbing to the various viewpoints and standing in front of the most awe inspiring backdrops one could never really imagine you could be so lucky to see.

Xavier was outstanding in all areas. He was constantly helping us to understand the history and geology aspects of Argentina. Xavier was supported by local guides like Paula in Chile who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Torres del Paine National Park. Her passion for Chile and the environment was infectious and helped you to enjoy the trek even more.

Be careful with the itinerary. You definitely need a winter back pack, not a day sack. I suggest 30-35L You will have to carry full waterproofs, an extra layer, a large pack lunch, 1 litre of water and a change of clothes with the tiniest amount of extras you can get away with: e.g. travel towel for a shower.
The first day is at least 12 hours long unless the itinerary is changed. The distance is 30 km, not 24 km as given in the trip notes. The second day is more like 8 hours, not 7 hours and we were not a slow group. The refuges are basic and you will need something on your feet to walk around in on arrival. Some dormitories were mixed.
Take a large holdall as luggage that you find easy to carry and you can get into for finding gear. You will do a lot of packing and unpacking at each section of the trip. Make sure you have a waterproof stuff sack for the porters.
The porters will only carry 3 kg of gear, which is not much. They also only porter for one day unless you pay them extra. You have one easier day and an optional day. You will probably want fresh shirts and a pair of casual trousers for this section.

Don't be put off by the length of distance being covered. The overall experience outweighs the demanding itinerary. The trip is fantastic but be prepared.

The Smartours trip to Patagonia was perfect in every way. Of course the area is magnificent--the glaciers stupendous. But in addition, our Patagonia guide was the definition of intelligence, wisdom and concern for all of us. Olga was always making an effort to explain, to teach and to relate individually. The hotels were excellent, the meals provided were also super. The entire tour was handled with proficiency, there were never any glitches or problems. The trip absolutely exceeded my expectations; I fully understand the enthusiasm that other trip participants who had been on previous Smartours expeditions expressed. All kinds of friends may be turning to Smartours for a Patagonia trip. Lots of people , including my younger daughter and husband, are thinking about it.
