What people are saying about Santiago

It started off with a hump. The guide came an hour earlier in the morning because the lack of communication between him, the admin services and me. It happened to me in Bueno Aires as well. I twice got the email for pick up time later than the guide suppose to pick up. Apart from that this trip is thoroughly recommended. The guide is extremely knowledgable and professional. We have seen the most beautiful part of Andes. The lunch was expensive and not very nice.

It is a very nice tour and ideal to know beautiful places near Santiago. The guide is very friendly, all the way he is explaining things about the trip, historical facts of Chile, and even making jokes, so he is very entertaining. Already in Valle Nevado you have the opportunity to walk through the snowy mountains and contemplate the landscape. I recommend it.

Perfect organization, very punctual, both on departure and return, Luiz guide very nice and professional. A very pleasant day in the Aconcagua valley; in February there is no snow, however you can admire a splendid panorama with the Inca lagoon.

Very good tour! Despite the lack of snow (because of the season itself) it was incredible. The guide very knowledgeable about everything, super kind and helpful. I recommend.

Laguna de Inca is well worth a day visit , also a great way to see a bit of the country on the way there
