Patagonia was just as beautiful and magical as I had imagined. My three favorite parts of the trip were 1) horseback riding solo with a guide in El Calafate at sunset, 2) trekking on Perito Moreno, and 3) walking around with the Penguins in Tierra Del Fuego.
It felt like each of my excursions were the best of the best! There were many times were other folks on different excursions were just looking at things through a bus window, for example, and I always found myself actually experiencing the places and activities. All of my guides were awesome, as well. My hotels were clean, friendly, and had great food. They were each centrally located such that it was easy for me to walk anywhere I needed to go within the city.
My agent, Lucas, was incredibly helpful. He was always available prior to the trip to answer my frequent questions and requests to change or edit my itinerary. He was dedicated to helping me plan the best trip for my needs, timeline, and budget. I never felt like he was trying to get me to spend more money than I was comfortable with. He was very prompt in his replies and thorough in his responses. He made sure that my dietary needs were met on the trip, too, ensuring that guides knew I had Celiac disease and needed to eat gluten free.
While on the trip, he was still very responsive and available - responding quickly to texts and emails if I had a question or concern.
I would absolutely book with Lucas and his local agency again, and I will definitely be booking with Evaneos again! As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and well taken care of, which freed me up to experience the trip more fully.
My only complaint is that due to a delayed domestic flight on my final day, I almost missed my international flight home. While this obviously couldn't be helped by the agency, in hindsight I think I probably should have been booked on an earlier domestic flight as it cut things really close.
