Excellent service since they went to the hotel for us, Mr. Hernan (driver and guide) a very kind and pleasant person, made the trip to the mountain very safe, he also gave us several tips to visit the Farellones park. It is the first time we went up to the snow and it was a very good experience. We recommend the private tour is all more expeditious, especially in high season. All excellent, recommended 100%
