    We had an amazing time on the Wild South tour, our guide was great, very knowledgeable and funny. The waterfalls were amazing and the glacier was one of the highlights of my trip. It was slightly more of a climb in some areas, we had crampons that fit on the bottom of our shoes, helmets and ice picks to hike the glacier, the view was amazing! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!
