It is a very nice tour and ideal to know beautiful places near Santiago. The guide is very friendly, all the way he is explaining things about the trip, historical facts of Chile, and even making jokes, so he is very entertaining. Already in Valle Nevado you have the opportunity to walk through the snowy mountains and contemplate the landscape. I recommend it.

Very good tour! Despite the lack of snow (because of the season itself) it was incredible. The guide very knowledgeable about everything, super kind and helpful. I recommend.

Excellent tour, the timing is ideal and you can have a lot of fun in Farellones, while Valle Nevado is more for photos and a quick stop.

Excellent service and great people, they made the trip really enjoyable and fun. I would 100% recommend them

Punctual, very friendly, very good disposition and clear in the explanations
