We took this tour the day after we did Estancia Cristina so the majority of the boat trip was repetitive; I definitely don't recommend taking both tours unless you live for seeing glaciers and icebergs. No issues with the service whatsoever, the guides were well versed and there is ample photo taking time. They even pick up some ice and give you the chance to order drinks with it and take photos. If you strictly want a half day tour that is on a boat and to see beautiful glacier than I would recommend this.( + see more)
