Hallo my friends. Pls advice me to the following:
1. A good tour company to make the Upsala and spegazzini glaciers tour.
2. Would you suggest to visit also the Estancia Cristina or only the boat tour?
3. Any other half day tour you would suggest that is worth. Our plane leaves at 17.00 so we have the morning free.
What are all the types of transportation in Santa Cruz, Argentina and cost in $?
I'm taking the bus (Bus Norte) from El Calafate to Puerto Natales in Chile. When do I have to get a stamp in my passport? At the border or somewhere in El Calafate?

Do I need to book a visit to Perito Moreno Glacier before I get there (Dec 27th to 29th)?
Is there a possiility to rent a car for 2 or 3 days and to cross the border with it to go to Puerto Tranquillo (marmol cathedral) ?
I would arrive from Bariloche by bus but don't feel to drive from so far on the ruta 40.
If not possible...should it be possible from Los Antiguos maybe ?
Thanks a lot for the answer. I will be there around the 15th of nov.

I'm interested in a cycling tour (lead) from El Calafate to Torres De Paines in Feb 2012. Rob
We are 2 women & will stay in el Calafate
14 - 19/February/2012 departing the 20/02. That makes 6 nights & 7 days.
We would like to visit the region:
Los Glaciares Park, TDPaine, take a catamaran trip to all possible glaciars
that are advertised on the Internet.
Since the lodging is so expensive & public transportation apparently not very good:
Does it pay to rent a car?
Could we save money from the rental taking the car only for 5 days, since first
and last day we need only transportation from and to the airport?
Are they car rental agencies in Calafate? are they reliable? I hear that sometimes you might reserve a 4X4 and get a very small car instead, is it true?
Would know how much does a taxi from the aiport to the center in El Calafate cost?
I would appreciate any tips you could offer.
