I paid for the trip and got the 'confirmed' status.
I've asked for - and received - the precise pickup time for our hotel.
They asked for additional passenger data and thanked me for providing them with all they needed.

Then, late afternoon right before the cruise, they sent me an email saying they have to cancel because they don't know where to pick us up from. All the despite the fact they got this information from Viator, set the precise pickup time and confirmed the completeness of data.

A call to their office revealed that, apparently, they will not be running the cruise on Saturday.

Calling their office, with one person talking loudly in the background and another person loudly whistling (seriously?!) in the background was a really bad experience. Trust me, you don't want to be doing all this last minute, in the middle of Patagonia, with spotty wifi/cell reception.

I ended up going with another, reliable company for the short boat trip + boardwalks. It was great. Book one of these instead.

the Vitator offer
El Calafate Glaciers Sightseeing Cruise
is exactly the same like the Rios de Hielo Express boat tour offered by many companies for the same Price or even a bether Price. I did not want to do this very short Rios de Hielo Express boat tour, thats why I ve choosen this offer by vitator. as it has promised something different and a longer tour. Promise broken, Vitator offeres this tour as an 8 hrs tour, but it was only 7 hrs, with only 5 hrs boat tour. 2 hrs were hotel pick up and Transfer to port. So a 5 hrs boat tour is by far not the "full day boat tour" Vitator has offered. We are disappointed.

Awesome experience! They pick you up from the hotel on time. The boat ride was fantastic, you see the glaciers up close.
Everything was on time and prompt.

Pague una excursión en El Calafate, para recorrer los glaciares. Valide la actividad un día antes por precaución y me confirmaron la realización de la misma. Nunca llego el vehículo a recogerme, cuando me contacte resulta que no había ninguna actividad ese día. Como consecuencia perdí todos los costos de alojamiento y transporte. Actualmente me encuentro esperando el reembolso de la tarifa cobrada por parte de Viator; sin embargo, aun no he recibido ninguna respuesta.
