We had a fabulous day’s trekking with Vanina in the Cordon Del Plata. She was a brilliant guide and looked after us expertly throughout the day. The trek was stunning rising to 3600 metres with amazing views but Vanina set the pace perfectly so it never felt too hard. She prepared a delicious lunch, guided us safely down and drove us back to Mendoza. Thank you to Joaquin for his excellent organisation and to Vanina for giving us such a fun day! Many thanks, Cam and Olly

This was a fantastic day trip. Vanina and Joaquín run their own company and are trained mountain guides. Safety comes first with them, even for inexperienced people, this tour is highly recommended. Vanina planned ahead, managed to adapt the tour to our needs perfectly, in adition to being an extremely knowledgeable guide and a fun person. You cannot go wrong with them, worth every cent.
