Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2013

We had a great time on this tour! They picked us up prompty at our hotel and took us to a little oasis in the mountains complete with a restaurant, huge patio, kitchen (with great food) and lounging chairs. We went whitewater rafting in the morning, which was one of the highlights of our trip to Argentina. We then did the ziplining in the afternoon, which had lines that extended over the Mendoza River. Some of the longest I've ever experienced. The guides were professional and helpful and the costs for these excursions was very reasonable compared to their competitors. I highly recommend!
