Gregory's Trip:The Classic Full Circuit
Gregory's Trip Date:
18th Jan - 27th Jan 2018
Overall, how was your trip?
Highlights include that each day was a totally different visual delight. Having done a fair amount of hiking - you can drink all of the water and it is icy! What I tell everyone is "You need to do this hike. Eight days of being off the grid and fabulous scenery. " Additional highlight for those of who have humped our stuff - the food is great and plentiful"
In one sentence, what did you think of Patagonia? Did it live up to your expectations?
Day three of the trip "We had huge expectations and the trip easily exceeded them
Would you visit again?
How was the service that Swoop provided?
All Swoop has to say to me is "We have another trip that is the caliber of Chile Nativo" and I will do it. Please send recommendations!
How did you feel about booking directly with our partner(s)?
Support from Chile Nativo was great. Always rec'd a reply from them (and you) within 24 hours

How was the Full Circuit in Torres del Paine?
We have forwarded our detailed reactions. Please choose whatever you need. If Greg Smith has not forwarded them then contact me and I will do so. Guides were great. Mauricio provided lots of expertise and laughs. Fernando's English is excellent. I would highly recommend both guides. How much did we like them - too them out to dinner after the hike and I have a "care" package of food I am sending them this week.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?
No need to bring extra food. Bring bug spray - there were not many, but who knew. And, there is beer/wine almost each night. Wow. Bathrooms were very decent considering where we were. Remember to bring cash for tips. We did 100 US per guide.
Anything else? Tell us anything you’d like to share that we forgot to ask! It’s ok to leave this empty too :-)
If you like to hike and want a bucket list adventure then do this hike. Yep, the weather is changeable, but it is all part of the experience
