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.
