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
The tour was well organized, good tour guide, all well planned. Just the area somewhat boring, same views all along the tour, I would expect more at the end of the tour - to take at least a short walk in the Aconcagua park. All you get is a picture opportunity at the gate. But tour is worth taking.
The tour was really what we expected and the guide was very good. He could tell a lot about the region.
We were vey glad that we booked that trip.
Fabulous views of the Andes. We are particularly interested in geology so found this trip fascinating
Some incredible sights to be seen on the way, a good hearty lunch at Las Cuevas and all we'll explained by the guides. The way back isn't as good because your travelling back on the same road but there is no other option. Be sure to take some warm clothes with you as you'll be at a reasonably high altitude in amongst snow-capped mountains. All in all a good tour that is certainly worth doing to explore the Andes around Mendoza and is good value for the amount that you get to see in one day.
The trip was impressively organized. The guides were really nice and helpful. The bilingual tour provided lots of information about the rock formations and Argentina history. There was plenty of time to explore at every stop and the views were breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Mendoza.
truly spectacular scenery along the way,a nice tour guide and bus, but in the end we did not get to see Aconcagua because of bad weather (which was a big disappointment). Many Spanish-speakers on our tour, but the guides repeat the information in English as well.
