    Uma dos passeios mais incríveis que fiz de bike em termos de paisagens. Quando estávamos indo mostrei ao nosso guia uma das fotos mais belas que tinha feito quando pedalando na Europa e no caminho dentro da Van ele falou , hoje você vai tirar a mais bonita…. e não mentiu … Fomos em amigos e adoramos o passeio,l, a Van passou em nosso hotel e fomos até a área de Cajon del Maipo com as bikes, lá chegando fizemos uma pedal bem tranquilo de uns 45 km, com paisagens maravilhosas, recomendo a todos que curtem um pedal e um visual incrível ! Patricio é fera !

    Lugar sensacional os guias foram tranquilos, bem atenciosos e conhecem bem o que fazem. Bikes precisam ser melhoradas.

    Passeio de bike muito bom. Desde a saída do hotel com veículo de Boa qualidade. O motorista Ricardo e o guia Jaime muito bons, com boa explicação de várias características do Chile e sua cultura. O passeio de bike muito bom, belíssimas paisagens e uma experiência incrível. Na volta, paramos em local para saborear a verdadeira empanada chilena, tudo muito bom! Recomendo a todos que procuram belas paisagens em cima de uma bike!!

    We really enjoyed our day trip to Maipo Valley. Me and me girlfriend decided for a tour outside the city and if possible by bike. Huaso Tours and especially Patricio made this experience unforgettable. The Maipo Valley is quite a picturesque Vallry and riding thru it with the bike is even better. Leaving early in the morning allows you to make it to Maipo valley when there is not so many people around. We were practically alone in the whole valley, while when we were heading back it was more people coming up. After some time cycling we made a stop in a privileged spot and they delighted us with a very tasteful picnic of local products (fruits, some sausage, ham, chips) with some juice. We then continued heading down with the bikes. In total we made around 20-25-30 kms most of them either flat or downhill. You need to have some ability riding the bike as heading downhill is not as riding in the city, still you don’t need to be a professional. My girlfriend and me we are used to cycle in the city and I personally do some mountain bike. We could manage without problems and even if you like a bit of action you can get it. Huaso tours provided some of the necessary equipment, helmets, globes and even had some light jackets you could borrow. Still, I would recommend to wear some comfortable clothes as you are going for a mountain bike ride. Concluding, this is a 100% recommended experience to do outside of Santiago

    We had an amazing time on this tour! Riding down the Andes on a bike was thrilling and Patricio gave us the best support possible with his expertise. He’s the perfect guide, giving us both precious information and time to enjoy the tour. Not least, he has a great support team, who scourts us all the way down and prepare us a delicius picnip with the best view possible.

    We really enjoyed a day with Jenni mountain biking around el Yeso reservoir and down the Maipo Valley. We didn't expect a private tour but apparently we were the only ones signed up. They still did the full day for us including hotel pickup at our hotel in los Condes, the drive up with a couple stops for a break, then biking along the length of the reservoir. A picnic lunch on the "beach" and finally the excitement of the downhill ride. And we were blessed with wonderful weather. Thanks Jenni and Huaso tours!
