  • If they make the trip to Punta Tombo (which is nice) and see the penguins in their habitat and their offspring all over really worth, they pass by Gaiman. The village is small and quaint, but there's not much to see. I desiluciono the Welsh tea. I wanted to go to the tea room where was Lady Dy. Excursions guides lead you to others. We went to Ty Gwyn. Served us several slices of bread with butter already buttered and 6 lots of small cakes. The only really good were the typical black Welsh cake and a white Welsh cream. Very rich. Then offer you to take what you have, but "obviously" not going to get the oily bread and spread with butter. Fugutours takes you to that House. The guide told me that we were going where I'd been to Lady Di, and was not true. Then I said... It was a bit far to go. Do not you give option. They take you to the tea House that they want. I'm not complaining of the company which also has a 15% discount by serviclub, but I didn't mind that the guide told me one thing on the other. Tip: If you want to eat a spectacular white cake of Welsh style cream with raisins, buy portion to $50 in the middle in the confectionery Valentina-the Welsh tea leaves almost $300 pesos per person.

  • Interesting history of the village, the arrival of the Welsh in Patagonia and the relationship with indigenous peoples, in particular the Tehuelche. Welsh delight at tea house, the most ancient in front square. Excellent attention. The Museum is very beautiful and is to stay a while to know.
