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.
Our tour guide Frank was great! English was his first language so that helped us out a lot :) He is very knowledgeable about all things Chile. Also this trip takes you much further into the reservoir area than others - glad I picked this over the others! You should too!! Perfect picnic w great vino!
Tour was outstanding. Frank, our guide and Jimmy, driver were great.
Very knowledgeable about city and surrounding area and history of Chile.
Having wine and cheese in the Andes was a pure delight.
Highly recommend this tour and others by same tour group, Stamp Tours
It was a wonderful experience. The whole tour was great. The guides were very solicitous, kind and were keen to give tips and tell curiosities about the place and the city. The embalse is fantastic. Unique landscape, wonderful environment. It is an experience that needs to be experienced by those who enjoy nature. Getting there early and going on week days when the movement may be a bit smaller is a tip. When it is filled with people, you may lose a bit of the silence and the place itself.
Foi uma experiência maravilhosa. O passeio inteiro foi ótimo. Os guias eram muito solícitos, gentis e estavam interessados em dar dicas e contar curiosidades sobre o lugar e a cidade. O Embalse é fantástico. Paisagem única, ambiente maravilhoso. É uma experiência que precisa ser vivida por aqueles que gostam da natureza. Chegar cedo e ir nos dias de semana, quando o movimento pode ser um pouco menor é uma dica. Quando está cheio de pessoas, você pode perder um pouco da experiência do silêncio e do lugar por si só.
