A great tour with lots of things to see. We were picked up between 7-8 am and drove to the Andes. We drove along route 7 from Mendoza all the way to Las Cuevas and back. We stopped at Lago Protrerillos, Uspallata, the Parque Provincial Aconcagua (for a short walk, 45 mins at a relaxed pace), to the Cristo Redentor de los Andes), at Las Cuevas (where we had lunch), and at the Puente del Inca in addition to a few other stops for pictures along the way. The guide Elisa and our driver Ruben were both very friendly and helped me with buying the ticket to the Aconcagua Park. I was the only person who requested the tour in English therefore I sat next to Elisa who translated whatever I hadn't understood from her explanations in Spanish. She was very knowledgeable and talked about the history, landscapes, flora and fauna of the region. I very much enjoed to trip although it laster much longer than was expected (~15 hours) mostly due to traffic. Overall, a very enjoyable experience!

This private experience was excellent! Pablo was very friendly and knowledgeable. Tour started and ended on time and the places we visited were stunning! The company was also able to accommodate our last minute reservation which we very much appreciated!

The tour was full of unexpected experiences and delivered amazing views in all directions. I would recommend this tour any day to those who like raving mountain ranges but don't necessarily want to spend a lot of time hiking or going there.

It's cheap enough and definitely worth going! The guide Paulo was attentive and knowledgeable, he and the driver Pablo did a fantastic job. And the view... Oh!

100% would recommend ! Great guide (Marta) and breathtaking landscapes ! Don’t forget to bring a jacket
