Fabolous.This tour is the most important of our travel in Mendoza. Aconcagua is a magic mountain. I recomended.
Great way to see the beauty of the region if you don't have the time to hike in the backcountry. Time to ride the Los Penitentes ski lift for the views late spring was an added bonus. The guide was friendly and engaged with both spanish and english speaking groups on board. Good value for the price.
This tour is exactly what you pay for. Nothing more, nothing less. Great panoramic views, good tour guide, a lot of information about the Andes and the places you visit.
Wonderful experience. Terrific bilingual guide. We were the only English speakers and felt comfortable. Be sure to bring additional money for food , rental of snow equipment, etc.
The tour was great, the guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Was able to communicate very effectively on English and Spanish.
the guide and driver were great. Christ of the Andes was the high oint.
This is a fantastic tour and a must if you visit Mendoza. We had a wonderful guide who was friendly and spoke very good English. The views of the mountains are awesome, particularly the snow capped Aconcagua. An experience that will live in the memory.
Just perfect for us....not too many people and very nice guides! I would recommend this tour to those wanting a short excursion into the mountains.
After some confusion at the beginning (the tour guide, but not the tour bus came to pick us up) we were on our way out to the mountains, through the flatlands outside Mendoza, but then things got seriously high, all the way up to close to Aconcagua. What we really liked about this trip were the several stops on the way there and back - all different, some with nice things to do as well, I didn't realise I would be going up on a ski lift as part of the experience for example! Our guide (Antonella) was charming and spoke relatively good English, the words she couldn't remember she made up for in charm.
We stopped for lunch at almost the highest point (right near the Chilean border) - the lunch wasn't exactly haute-cuisine but it did the job.
A great tour, thoroughly recommendable.
This is an amazing experience! Being at the top of the Andes Mountains was one of the most espetacullar activity I´ve ever done when travelling. I´d change only the restaurant we´ve stopped for lunch, but it´s not something that takes away the magic of what we´ve just seen!
The guide and the driver were very nice people. The driver showed to be experient on this route!
Lovely day out. The drive from Mendoza up to the old border crossing between Argentina and Chile was spectacular, particularly the drive up the winding mountain road to the Christ the Redeemer monument. Stopped off at a local restaurant for lunch on the return to Mendoza and this was really nice and good value. An enjoyable day out.
Excellent trip but upset by driver on three occasions. He had been smoking in the bus when we returned at the Chile/Argentina border and then the lunch stop........when I arrived in the bus at the border he still had a cigarette in his hand!! The third occasion was when he needlessly 'cut up' a small-car driver twice and nearly caused a serious accident. Most of his driving was good except for this serious incident.
Great way to spend the afternoon. Pickup and drop off from hotel. Our tour guide was great--she spoke Spanish as well as English and was easy to understand. Pack layers as it is cold and windy and consider bringing a lunch. The place you stop for lunch is so-s
Fantastic from beginning until end! Our guide was a total sweetie, and each stop was perfect. The amount of time needed to take pictures, look around, and just enjoy the amazingness that is the Andes was perfect!! I feel lucky I got to experience this! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Saw all the things I wanted to see. Was not rushed. Pick up and return was timely. Very pleasant tour guide who spoke English well.
WE REALLY ENJOYED THIS DAY TRIP. THE GUIDE WAS FANTASTIC. THERE WERE A COUPLE OF PASSENGERS WHO WERE VERY DIFFICULT AND SHE HANDLED IT VERY WELL.
Our tour and tour guide were absolutely amazing!! My son and I had a wonderful day. Just be aware that there are a few extra charges during the day for rental of boots and snow pants, shopping, and a possible trip on the ski lift.
Well organized. Actually more then we expected. Stefanija was very knowledgeable and very sweet. Juan, our driver, was amazing. Would definitely recommend to others.
Not to be missed if you are in Mendoza. Very well organized and
Interesting. Guide and driver were great. Very beautiful countryside and Aconcagua was Spectacular
This was a good tour. We spent a lot of time in the van but got to see some cool stuff hopefully the weather is good though or you won't get a great view of Aconcagua. The tour guide was knowledgeable of the area. Note that you may need your passport for police checkpoints even though you don't actually go in to Chile - we didn't know this but fortunately everything worked out OK
The Tour itself was very good. The views incredible. The Tour guide was also very polite, bi-lingual and showed concern for every passenger being fully informed. I strongly recommend that the Tour Group understand though that we the tourists are not interested in racing from point to point having to pass slightly slower vehicles enroute. The roads are far too treacherous for that.The last stop on the way to the top included a very organic type meal and setting. The red wine beef stew was to die for, or maybe we were just starving? No, we recommend this tour very much and would do it again with a better driver!
Enjoyed this trip. Need to advise individuals as part of the marketing that there is a price for the mountain lift, most people were not expecting it and 95 of the group did not go. Also good to advice that extremely warm clothing is required!
