What people are saying about Cachi

We really enjoyed the tour! The nature was breathtaking and we also liked Cachi. Our guide (Fernando) in particular spoke perfect English and even a bit of German. He also knew a lot about nature and the geographical features of the surrounding nature. The bus driver also drove very responsibly. We felt safe the entire time. Unfortunately the seating situation in the last row was a disaster. We sat in a row that was designed for 4 people, but in reality only 3 people could have sat. Unfortunately, this was a minus point for such a long journey. The microphone also didn't work properly for the first hour. We would still do it again at any time.

Excellent experience that allowed me to see multiple views in a few days. The guides are trained, they change from day to day, as do the drivers and vehicles. The pick up method is a bit chaotic, between 7 and 7.45 but sometimes I have been contacted even earlier and it can be inconvenient if you have breakfast at the hotel (in the end however they always find a solution). Only 15 minutes in Hornocal is perhaps a little short. In any case, an excellent experience that I absolutely recommend.

We had an absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was super good and did the tour in both English and Spanish and was very passionate. The driver was also really good. You see some incredibly beautiful nature.

The guide and driver were great? really made the trip enjoyable

Great trip - wonderful landscapes, lovely guide (Jasmin).
