  • Excellent the scenery, very well achieved, travel is done with audio single story that one can pause, fast-forward or rewind as you need. It tells the story of Ushuaia since its inception. Price chord adult tour which lasts 1 h drive, ranging in time devoted each to take pictures. Recommended for use with children since they play all the time. Children under 12 years do not pay.

  • Very nice experience that allows you to learn about the history of tierra del fuego in a more entertaining way. You can take several pictures and perform at the rate of one run. A job very well done.
