The landscape was out of this world. All the places were fantastic. Breakfast with Claudia is a magical experience and later on the bbq is perfection. I would definitely do it again in the future. Thank you Ignacio for sharing your culture and places with so much devotion and pride.

Great experience. Awesome hike. We had a great time with Sean. He is very friendly and kind. We learned a lot about local life, the country and Santiago of course. We greatly appreciated the stop at the craft market to enjoy a typical meal. I recommend this excursion and if you have the chance to do it with Sean, you will not be disappointed.
