    This trip was dxcellent. We felt that we had a good day out on Chiloe and a lot was packed into it. A long day, - we didn't get back to Puerto Varas until about 8.30pm ....but we thank the guide and driver for packing so much into it and working hard & long hours to give us the best experience. We feel that we saw quite a lot of Chiloe and that the trip was good value. Because the guide was from Chiloe himself he was able to tell us a lot of stories and answer all questions. He spoke good English. Both guide and driver were nice people and gave us a very enjoyable day out.

    The smll towns are very cosy with the wonderful old churches made vrom wood and very old. Nice markets and nice restaurants. We were enjoying the countryside as well as the nature parks and the view of the see fron all locations.

    Hicimos una excursión con la agencia TurisTour, que mereció la pena por la guía que nos acompañó, Victoria.

    We covered highlights that we anticipated when we saw the tour description, but some stops turned out to be even better than expected compared to our reading of three guidebooks. Our guide was excellent can't remember his name. He was a bilingual young man who spent as much time with us as with the other tour participants, even though we were the only two native english speakers. He was very personable. Also, the tour price was excellent, compared to another tour we independently arranged of the lake area.

    We booked an english speaking day tour, but in the end we were the only english speaking couple and the tour was done in spanish. The guide explained everything in detail in spanish which I understood, but not my wife and then gave a quick summary in english.
    Not worth the money at all!!!
