Un tour davvero ricco, Daniel è stata una guida divertente, brillante ed esaustiva, attenti ad ogni nostra esigenza il tour per quanto turistico ha avuto ben poco di "turistico", bensì ci è sembrato di girare con amici del posto. Consiglio assolutamente per che ha voglia di una giornata diversa e divertente on the road!

Excellent tour with Daniel and Miguel! He arrived on time (accommodated my last-minute change in clothing to fit the weather), was knowledgeable, provided clean and efficient transportation, and was very friendly. It was a fantastic trip! I recommend it to anyone who is in the Santiago area wanting to see more of Chile.

A experiência foi maravilhosa, o guia e todos os locais que visitamos foram sensacional.
