What to Expect
Top 10 Tour Agency in Santiago by TripAdvisor
"Delightful Day Trip to the Andes. Andes Mountains Day Trip: Sebastion and driver Tio provided a delightful day, with great information, friendly and personalized, paced just right. We started with a drive through the city and then up into the Andes Mountains, through small towns and villages, with stops along the way for little treats, and a traditional lunch which was delicious. The drive was accompanied by several genres of Chilean music, which Sebastian chose to give us a flavor of the culture."
Lonettie Matheron, USA - January 2020
"The guide (Fran) was amazing, unbelievably knowledgeable, personable, local but with excellent English having lived in the US. She was fun, charming and gave us a really strong sense of local culture and just knew how to organize a very full, rich day, how much to talk how much to let us just enjoy the view. Fran was very charming. She had loads of surprises including a nice wine toast and a spread of snacks for us before we headed back to town."
Deirdre Girard, USA - February 2019
"This is a brilliant tour company and we had a lovely day on the Andes winter route. Fran and Seba are warm, flexible, engaging, and passionate about all things Chilean. Indeed, this day felt like it was spent with local friends, showing us the best of the city’s natural surrounds. A+"
