Super good! A tour with a short walking route. More to see the landscapes and take photos, you do not have to be in great physical shape. I do recommend renting the snow clothing that they offer you because it is warmer and gets very dirty in winter. At the end, the Picnic of cheeses, sausages and a great Chilean wine are the finishing touch to the activity. Our guide Isabel was very good and attentive to all the details. I recommend it !!

Finally I took the personalized transfer tour just to go skiing and come back. Incredible attention! He waited for me with the phone and was attentive to all the driver ... not to mention how pleasant the trip was ... very good to take with a group of friends to go skiing. 100% recommended

Very good tour. The place is spectacular, it had snowed a lot and the experience was very good. The attention of the agency and the guide Sebastian and Leonardo was very good. Recommended for the attention of the guides and to know a very beautiful place. Lovely family outing.

Really nice trip! And a very friendly driver. It was a good experience and I would recommend it for sure. There’s some beautiful views of the cordillera!
