Marta was a great guide and Cristian a very confident driver on difficult mountain roads. Marta was well prepared, had lots of local knowledge, and organized a great tour. A must take tour from Mendoza. So much to see for nature lovers

a very good day tour, long journey though , but worthed ,they work professional, when they noticed we were not spanish speaker, they solved the problem by finding alternative guide who speak both languages before starting the tour.
