Leisurely and Lovely

The excursion was as described, except I thought we were going to a secluded "lagoon" and it was a wide open reservoir! The Andes are much more desert like in this area, which was different than I expected. Our guide, Manuel, and driver were great. After out time at the reservoir, we drove further in. They set up a beautiful picnic in a meadow and offered local wines with cheeses, fruits and meats. Very lovely. Beautiful mountain scenes.

The chocolate factor
stefanunnasch
, Jan. 2020
The tour guide was nice and the views were good but the organization failed us in several ways when an accident on the road ahead prevented us from making it to the valley. There was little apparent effort made to divert to a nearby hiking trail on the way back, which admittedly could have been full of danger. In any event we enjoyed our tour of the chocolate factor, which is amazing and stroll through the river bank. First I heard from Viator on this.

The entire tour was great from start to finish. The scenery was beautiful and our guide and driver were fantastic, very friendly and incredibly knowlegable, plus the picnic they prepared was great. Very highly recommended.

We had decided that a trip to Cajon del Maipo was essential for our stay in Santiago and we had read up on the various options before we booked this tour. The first thing to say is that the actual place and setting is amazing and its worth the long journey to get there. At this time of year its worh bearing in mind that there is little snow and perhaps the landscape isnt as spectacular as in the spring. There was one very small waterfall. The main issue we had, and where the overall experience fell very short, was regarding the quality and abilities of the tour guide. His English was very limited indeed and he was unable to explain in any detail points of interest about the landscape or social characteristics of both our journey and the destination. He repeatedly made jokes about Argentinians and other things which was totally inappropriate and unnecessary, and he spent the bulk of the journey into the mountains chatting with the driver and another guy who we understood was in charge of the picnic. Within a short time of leaving the hotel we were the last pick up the coach stopped we were told for toilets and to buy water but it seemed that it was more for the driver to get his breakfast. After around an hour into the mountains we stopped for toilets which each tourist had to pay for- not much admittedly but seemed odd that on a paid for tour one has to do this. At the reservoir the coach then stopped close to where we picnicked so there wasnt a walk as we had assumed. The picnic was wine, soft drinks,crisps,cheeses and salami. No empanadas as advertised in the tour bumf. So in summary, a great destination but Id advise anyone booking this tour to check out the provider beforehand.

Beautiful experience. Excellent driver, and the guide was the best English speaking person we met in Chile. We had thought that there may have been another stop than the end point, but there was little time for that, given that distance. Definitely recommended.

This tour surpassed all our expectations. The weather was absolutely gorgeous at the Embalse el Yeso. The scenery is just breathtaking. It was the best experience ever! Before returning to Santiago we had brunch, which included wine and many delicious goodies. The driver and the tour guide were awesome they were always ready to answer questions we asked. This is a day trip you cant miss while visiting Chile.
