What people are saying about Santiago

The experience at Cajón del Maipo y Embalse el Yeso was spectacular. The whole tour was carried out in an unguarded and responsible way and the guides gave a history and geology lesson. These guides were the differential of the tour, first, for the safety that the driver Leo took us to the places, and second for all the promptness, friendliness and didactics of the guide Yuri when passing his knowledge. I recommend!!!! Having no doubt that it is the best agency.

The punctual bus, the guide very responsible and fun. Very intelligent since he informed us spectacularly in 3 different languages, being passengers from different countries. And we were all very happy. The beautiful place I recommend it !!
