Madness! This tour is indescribable and you should definitely do it! Our guides were Carlos and Gonzalo. There were exciting facts about everything and by the way Carlos is a good photographer. If you are afraid because Chile has been in the news lately, we should say that we didn’t notice anything and only met nice people. You can have breakfast and get sandwiches for lunch and go out for tapas after the tour. Even water bottles were there for everyone. The tour is also suitable for inexperienced hikers because it is all about enjoying the mountains. It was just wonderful

Fabulous excursion to pure and great nature. Where the roads end, there is no power line, enjoy some exercise, clean air, a bath in the hot springs surrounded by the majesty of the mountain, a great choice. The small group tour, 6 in our case, with two guides who were always attentive to everyone and their needs. All safe, controlled, adapted to the composition of the group. Both Francisco and Elías, with extensive knowledge of group management, mountain and flora and fauna, and ability to convey that knowledge in a pleasant way. Even the people who made up the group were interesting, there we smiled the fortune, all individual travelers. A success to have hired him, an experience of those forever. Very thankful

Very punctual collection in a comfortable minibus. Very good fit of the guides Padro and Pancho with the relatively young group, no one-sided sound, but responsive to the wishes of the group. Overall, very good food for the setting of a hike and very good taste of music on the trip. Fantastic landscape in the Andes and nice little hike with sighting of several condors. Sufficient time at the thermal springs with several pools from pleasantly warm to very hot (55 degrees). No luxury spa but great view of the valley - be careful: very high risk of sunburn.
