What people are saying about Mendoza

Very fun activity to get to know the River and the impressive landscape that surrounds it. We did it in December and it was very good in terms of weather. They give you wetsuits to protect you from cold. It is advisable to bring your own shoes that can get wet, do not indicate it previously. Also, bring a towel to change after the activity. We did that and Canopy. We observe that the boys who only did Rafting had to wait all afternoon for the others to finish to return to the hotels, to take it into account. There is a restaurant for lunch that is very economical although you can also bring your food. Came from the activity sell the photos and videos to 500 AR. It is not possible to bring a water chamber or Go Pro. The only thing we did not like was that it took more than 1 hour to pick us up at our accommodation. Despite this, very nice and enjoyable activity!

What an amazing trip with the best guide ever Joaquin. He was very informative, and friendly. The amount of time we spent together we already all felt like family. We were a small group of 4 people total including him, which was perfect. I highly recommend this activity.

I have had an amazing, profesional and a real mountain girl as a guide. The trek was all I expected and incredible Andes surroundings was like a blessing Vanina took care of me, made a tasty lunch break in Confluencia. She is the best

The best away guide Pablo, a genius. Very good rafting experience. Lack of maintenance in the suits but the place is very good. You can also eat well at affordable prices

We had an amazing time with Destino Montana! They were well prepared, funny, informative, and very flexible with our last-minute booking. I couldn't recommend them more!
