What people are saying about Ensenada, Chile

The tour was great! Nelly, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the nature throughout the trip. Pickup was on time, drop off was also on time and we never felt rushed. The driver was also friendly and helpful, definitely recommend!

The tour guide Jenny and the organization of the tour were excellent. Unfortunately, it rained the entire day, which made the trip up to view Mount Osorno a bit of a waste. Petrohue Falls and our boat excursion were beautiful nonetheless.

Great day out with a small group of 11. Once at areas of interest it was great to be able to visit, hike and experience the area independently. Guide did well with translating in Spanish and English

Guide Javier/Xaviar was wonderful Made the trip very special for all
