Superb tour. The guys were friendly, knowledgeable and clearly committed to their work. They were great with my son (aged 10), and the whole trip was better than we had hoped for. The food/drink was high quality and they knew when to not talk and just let us snooze in the back. Cannot recommend AndoAndes enough. If going to the hot springs, do note that the infrastructure is basic but that this has nothing to do with the guides! It’s an amazing experience and even though we got back to the hotel exhausted, it’s a day we will remember for a long time. You won’t regret booking this tour with these brilliant tour guides.

Madness! This tour is indescribable and you should definitely do it! Our guides were Carlos and Gonzalo. There were exciting facts about everything and by the way Carlos is a good photographer. If you are afraid because Chile has been in the news lately, we should say that we didn’t notice anything and only met nice people. You can have breakfast and get sandwiches for lunch and go out for tapas after the tour. Even water bottles were there for everyone. The tour is also suitable for inexperienced hikers because it is all about enjoying the mountains. It was just wonderful

Fabulous excursion to pure and great nature. Where the roads end, there is no power line, enjoy some exercise, clean air, a bath in the hot springs surrounded by the majesty of the mountain, a great choice. The small group tour, 6 in our case, with two guides who were always attentive to everyone and their needs. All safe, controlled, adapted to the composition of the group. Both Francisco and Elías, with extensive knowledge of group management, mountain and flora and fauna, and ability to convey that knowledge in a pleasant way. Even the people who made up the group were interesting, there we smiled the fortune, all individual travelers. A success to have hired him, an experience of those forever. Very thankful
