Very good experience, Julio is very kind with the explanations. The tour started in a vineyard with wine tasting, then we met some llamas and other animals. Then we tried the empanada de Pino, which was very good. We visit the border of Chile and finally the impressive lagoon of the Inca. A very good tour created and a beautiful place Chile.

Very good excursion, which was even carried out only for the two of us because someone had canceled the day before. Great impressions in a fantastic country on this tour at around 3000m altitude. Would book it again and again, especially since the tour guide was super good and we had a lot of fun together that day. The impressions and experiences have already impressed us and added another highlight to the holiday in Chile. :-)))

Our guide Michelle and driver Jimmy were really great! Michelle is from the US so she speaks perfect English. Wear hiking boots!!! I had no idea there was a short uphill hike at the winery and did not wear proper footwear. The tour itinerary should be completely reversed. The mountain stop should be first, followed by the wine visit. 2 reasons: the road leading up the mountain is extremely curvy, I did not feel well after drinking wine. The second is that there is no bathroom stop for 2.5 hours from the mountain to the city, me and another traveler felt like our bladders were going to burst!
