The tour is excellent and is a must-do once in Bariloche if you are into nature and marvelous lakes. The road is very scenic in every bit. The brief stops at the lakes to soak in the views and take some photos were priceless. Mika, our guide, was great: very knowledgeable, informative and funny. The stop at Villa la Angustura was extremely brief (more of a toilet break). I heard the place would deserve a bit more time to experience. I'd recommend spending more time in Villa la Angustura at the expense of San Martin de los Andes. A highly recommended tour.
After a pick up in the city center, we drove 1.5 hours before the first 30 minute break at Villa Angostura, then about 3 hours (with several stops to admire the viewpoints) to go to San Martin and stay there for 2 hours. On the way back we also stopped 30 at Villa Angostura. The landscapes are magnificent but the road is a bit long, especially on the way back. The guide was very interesting.
The tour was well worth it, not only because of the views, but because José and Sandra were excellent. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. What more can a traveler ask? Luis from Puerto Rico
