"What an amazing day!
Sebastian took our two families for our last day in Chile, and it was our best day!!!!!
Rafting, lunch, some local connections and a finale wine tour, before dropping us off at the airport. We were all so happy and invigorated but the whole experience.
Parents and teenage boys were equally excited. It was a blast!
The team is extremely thoughtful and prepared with knowledge and activities to keep us enlightened and entertained!!!!! We’ll come back, thank you!"

"I Love Chile responded to my email request for information with detailed opportunities for immediate booking for my family of five. The van played Chilean music and we had a lively conversation while driving up Maipo Canjon to an unforgettable river rafting experience. Our tour then went to a wonderful restaurant with local flavors."
