I was the only person who spoke English and felt like I only got some of the information because guide spoke several minutes in Spanish and less than 1/2 that time to me. Was told Spanish took more words but my other excursions weren’t like that at all (approximately equal time in both languages). Would be helpful to know when we’re stopping to be prepared but always suddenly stopped to get off bus and people weren’t prepared. Really enjoyed this trip and would do it again!

It was a great experience. The guide, Gabriela, and the driver Ruben, are very professional and attentive. Gabriela gave us a great tour, and shared her knowledge about all the places with details. Very good. The places stunning. I really recommend.

Amazing experience. The exceptional guide. attentive. Responsible. Informed. trained. 100% personalized activity. If we return without a doubt, we will contact her again.

The whole day trip to Aconcagua was epic! Lorenzo was a fountain of knowledge and made the day even better, nice guy! Thanks again.

Unbelievably pretty! The ride as well as the stops were super nice and very well organized.
