Not what I expected - but the drive was pretty -- just not much to the tour.

Very underrated spot to visit. Great way to get up into the Andes from Santiago. Very beautiful spot to see.

We did not get to the ski resort because the roads had been closed. Our guides are great and felt bad but it was the most exspencive car ride we ever took. The system needs a better way of understanding roads that are closed the morning of the trip.

The most amazing day with carol our tour guide and driver Rodrigues . Portillo is so beautiful with the lake swimming pools and being able to ski over the highway. A must do for any skier it will be the highlight of your trip

Driver and guide very nice and friendly, the main problem is that we did this tour during summer time and half an hour in Portillo is enough, nothing to do there! Should definitely be combined with something else to do around during summer time

good but not excellent really depends on the tour guide

Foi sensacional, apesar de não termos esquiado, pois a temporada ainda não estava aberta. O lugar é muito lindo, vale a pena! Obrigada Luis pela paciência e presteza!

We had a fantastic trip to Portillo. The guide was helpful and friendly. He helped us with our rentals, told us about the area and was always available for helping us. The driver of the van was amazing. The hairpin turns were quite an experience but we all felt so comfortable with our amazing driver. Skiing was great. I would recommend this trip to people who want to go and ski as there is not much else to do but ski. The skiing and lifts were a highlight!
