  • This tour was exactly what I wanted it to be! The tour guide was super informative and knew the answers to all the questions asked, regardless of topic - cultural, botanical, geological, political. He was very friendly and I felt like he really cared about the guests.
    The hike was moderately difficulty. I would not recommend it for people with very bad knees, or for children under 8.

  • Very beautiful and enjoyable hike.

  • This was a great trip. The hike is over moderate to difficult terrain what was great for me. The guides were extremely knowlegeable and friendly.

  • My review is a little bit of a mixed bag. First the good stuff. Our guides were fantastic! I really couldn't have asked for better. They took great care of us and made sure we were safe and had fun. Lunch was very good. Tasty and filling. The mountain is beautiful. What disappointed me was that none of us were really prepared for the experience. Everyone on the tour thought we were going for a moderate hike on the ground, and we were all dressed for that. We actually drove up the mountain, past the snow line, and went on a rather challenging hike up the mountain in snow shoes. I will say that I enjoyed myself, and I think we were all rather proud of our unexpected accomplishment, but we would have been more comfortable with the weather and the difficulty of the hike if we knew ahead of time what we were going to be doing. Bottom line: Great people, great fun, just check to see what the activity actually entails.

  • I really enjoyed our snow hike! Our guide Andres arrived right on time to pick us up and was fantastic throughout the tour. The lunch was a lot more than I expected!!!
    All equipment was supplied even gloves for those who forgot to bring a pair.

  • A great winter's day out into the Cajon del Maipo with absolutely stunning scenery enroute! We ended up snow-shoeing up the mountain with gear provided by the crew. A day well worth the fresh mountain air!

  • This was an amazng tour! Andre and his pals too great care of us. They made sure thatwe had fun and got some great pictures. The tour picks you up from your hotel, provides lunch and transporation back to the hotel. All the hikinb gear is provided to you as well. f you have a day to spare then definetly do this tour. You will be glad that you did.

  • Excelente excursión, paisajes hermosos, la caminata por la nieve con raquetas toda una nueva experiencia, luego el almuerzo en el valle nevado a pies del volcán, rodeado de montañas nevadas. Los guías muy atentos, cordiales, simpáticos y amenos. Simplemente excelente.

  • Great tour and perfect amount of time scheduled for a leisurely hike!

  • Although it was a long drive to reach our destination, the outing showed us some interesting sights and some amazing views of the Andes. The walk was short and the track was quite rocky.
