Our driver, Jimmy, was on point at the pick-up time and took us safely to the Farellones Park, even providing us all the necessary tips concerning renting the proper outfits, how to spend our time at the Park and with every doubt we had. He also dropped us closer to our Airbnb when we came back, which was really kind of him. Basically, for those who are unclear on how the tour works: - You pay for the transportation and tips provided and that is extremelly fair, taking in consideration the difficulty of the road and the fact that you need the information the driver/guide provides. - Every other expense has to be paid apart (the tickets to the park, the outfits to use in the park and any other thing you need inside, including lockers and food). - The tour picks you up, it takes arround an hour and a half to get there (after everyone is picked up) and at the Farellones Park you have five hours to do whatever you want to. The way back takes the same time. Trully worth it!

Puntos a tomar en cuenta para el tour: 1- En Farellones es donde encuentran las actividades de nieve, subir a Valle Nevado es de miradores y profesionales de ski. Por lo que si se quiere ir principalmente a hacer actividades recomiendo que se bajen en Farellones y no ir hasta Valle Nevado para poder disfrutar más tiempo en el parque. 2- No ir los dias viernes, sábado o domingo porque son los dias en los que se encontrarán más personas en el parque y puede que no alcance el tiempo de hacer todas las actividades por las filas. 3- Tener en cuenta que la entrada al parque no está incluida en el tour

Impressive, wonderful experience, I did not know the snow and the park is wonderful. Experience of another level, I loved completely. Although the tour only includes transfers, it is highly recommended because going otherwise is difficult. I recommend paying full suit rental and paying the entrance to the park otherwise you will not be able to appreciate anything.

Very good service, they were punctual and attentive at all times. We had a small mishap on the way that could have been avoided, however, they were able to correct it correctly.

I loved ! Super friendly! It is a safe tour, the I went gives you a lot of help, he has a lot of patience, I highly recommend it !!!
