Great excursion!

Gabriel and Jorge made this trip to Maipo canyon a fantastic experience! Not only did we get to marvel at beautiful sights, but we also leaned the history behind the canyon and were able to taste local flavors. Gabriel sent us a list of items to bring- sunglasses water jacket and that was about all you need! Communication was excellent and I highly recommend this tour for all ages! Also, took many great photos!

My tour started punctually at 8AM and our tour guy Gabriel is outstanding! On our way to the destination, he almost explained everything we saw on the route and shared a great deal of his knowledge which is very beneficial for us to understand Santiago and Chile in general. He was very enthusiastic and passionate and I would recommend him to everyone!

We were fortunate to catch one of the last trips of the season to Cajon del Maipo. The views were incredible. Gabriel gave an excellent tour throughout the journey to the Cajon & the Andes. We stopped on the way back for some wine & the classic Chilean empanadas. The chocolate house homemade ice cream was a great finish!

They say trip was very good. The place is amazing and you get to see a lot of the sighs. There is more than one stop for pictures. The lake is breathtaking. Some other tours offer a picnic, which I wish we've had. We did have a empanada and some very good wine, but for sure it would've been better to experience it by the lake. We got early to the stops, so we pretty much got the place to ourselves, which was excellent The tour is quite expensive, but the place is worth it

This day was wonderfully spent enjoying beautiful views from a comfortable van with several fun stops for pictures along the way. The transport was comfortable and clean with your own climate control in the back. Bathroom breaks were offered throughout the day and snacks and water were provided. We were also given a chance to buy additional snacks at a convenience store on the way out. Gabriel provided informative commentary about the area throughout the journey and was knowledgeable to answer various questions we had about Chile in general. He spoke very clear English, which made understanding the commentary really easy. He offered several great photo opportunities with beautiful landscapes in the background. Throughout the day we had the chance to walk down to a beached area and touch the picture perfect water, enjoyed some more awesome scenery, stopped for some homemade empanadas, and finished the day off with some delicious ice cream. The tour will return you to your hotel with plenty of time to plan for dinner/night life. This company emphasized a more personal small group experience! We would definitely book with this company again!

Manuel (Manny) and driver Jorge made the tour special. A great way to get a closer view of the Andes and learn about the area. A small group tour - the group was great and we enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the beautiful turquoise reservoir. Stopped for great cheese empanadas. Jorge is an amazing driver and inspired confidence on tricky roads with big drop-offs and no guard rails. A wonderful way to spend the day and see more of the countryside especially with limited time.

This tour was awesome. My husband and I booked it last minute, trying to make the most of our last day in Santiago, while getting out of the city. Communication via WhatsApp with the driver, to arrange for pick up, was easy. Our driver Jorge was epic, we were told he was very experienced driving the winding dirt road up near the damn and we always felt safe. Our tour guide Daniela was also the best; her English is excellent and she gave a lot of historical information about Santiago, the area, and the landscape during our two hour drive. We had a yummy picnic at the damn, including wine :) Stopped for an empanada on the way back, as well as ice cream at Casa Chocolate (LOVED)! Really enjoyed talking with Daniela, Jorge, and the others in our small group.

This was an awesome trip! Gabriel picked us up right on time at our hotel in Santiago, He drove us through some awesome scenery as we worked our way up into the Andes mountains and was very considerate to let us know when 'stops' would be made for rest rooms. Once we arrived at the beautiful reservoir, he parked and let us wander around for a while to take pictures of the area. Back at the van, he had a wonderful picnic set up with fruits, crackers, cheese, wine and juices. A 'Picnic in the Andes'! We were never rushed and he made us feel like anything we needed he would take care of. On the way back we stopped for some cheese empanadas which were delicious! My husband and I loved the tour and recommend it to ANYONE who would like a lovely, scenic day out of the city!!

A perfect way to spend your last day in Santiago before a late evening flight

We had a wonderful day-long trip along the Maipo River valley on the western side of the Alps. The scenery, especially the reservoir and the Alps mountain range, was spectacular. Our tour guide, Manny, was lots of fun and very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the region. Our driver, Jorge, was very competent and fun. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Vitacura. This is a perfect day trip for tourists with late evening flights home. We were picked up promptly at 8am and dropped off around 5pm with a 7:30pm transport to the airport. Our hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Santiago - Vitacura, was happy to store our luggage for the day. Manny & Jorge made sure that we had plenty of time to explore the spectacular vistas of the reservoir and then served us a lovely picnic of fruits, cheeses and meat, and wine. We had several bathroom stops as well as a stop for empanadas, a chocolate house and a waterfall. We had 13 guests on our tour and the van was comfortable with a good sound system for Manny's commentary.
