    Very well organised trip. A great group of people who really bonded. The tour leaders were excellent; nothing was ever too much trouble and they seemed determined to ensure that everybody had a good time. The scenery was spectacular and the activities... Show more

    Patagonia has much to offer,- stunning natural wonders and scenery. The tour was at times hectic and challenging, but a great experience overall.
    Dragoman Overland commented on this review
    Thank you for your review. Whilst you do sacrifice a few home comforts for this particular tour there's great wild camping, mixed with hostels and hotels; wonderful opportunities for walking, horse riding, rafting, ice climbing and exploring, which we... Show more

    The W trek and Mt. Fitz Roy were the best. I never thought that I would ever have a chance to explore that part of the world. Climbing the Vilaricca Volcano is also something that I can say that got so many admirers. From whitewater rafting to wildlife... Show more

    Wouldn't recommend them for South America. Guides are not helpful, they are only there to pay for lodging and sell extra options. Trip kitty was more expensive then initially expected. Management of food and tasks we're not always handled accordingly.... Show more

FAQs

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego between Santiago and Ushuaia (from Ushuaia to Santiago) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.
