Excellent guide. Very informative, funny and spoke very good English. Very enjoyable day.
I loved this tour! Our guide Felipe and our driver Sebastian were both awesome. The guide shared so much information, and was so knowledgeable about any topic we wanted to discuss. For those who don't hike, the hike is not demanding...it's maybe a 5 minute walk to the beach, maximum, with a slight decline and a few rocks. But we were the only group actually at the water! All other groups started way far back, and just saw the lake form afar. The spread Felipe and Sebastian prepared for us was awesome, and then we even had lunch afterward.
Definitely bring a jacket, as the wind is extremely cold, even if the sun is warm.
Our guide Simon and our driver made the trip extra special for us. We felt like we had been friends forever!
Ben, the tour guide, was one of the best I've come across. Funny, very knowledgeable and easy going, Ben and our driver delivered a great day. The canon is a must see!
Very well planned and led. We had 11 in the group and a nice, comfortable mix of ages and nationalities.
First stop was for coffee/tea/hot chocolate on the way to the lake. A couple of photo stops at the lake entailed a bit of walking but nothing at all strenuous. But the lake is about 5000 feet higher than Santiago, so be prepared for it to be cooler there.
Near the lake, we stopped for wine and snacks. The last stop was about 2 pm for empanadas baked in a wood-fired oven.
More than just the beautiful scenery at the lake, the drive out there and back is very nice and, with the stops along the way, gives a view of small towns in the Chilean countryside.
Some lovely scenery with a great guide Felippe...Stopped off in the middle of nowhere for wine and snacks plus a dinner later..A Great day!!
Great tour knowledgeable and friendly guide nice choice of snacks and drinks including wine at a nice mountain setting good lunch at a small town restaurant and very safe driver. I recommend this tour highly.
This was my favorite tour in Santiago. Our guide Simon was young and from the mountain town that we visited. We had a great group of tourists and had so much fun talking with each other that we had to re-focus on why we were there! Love the hot chocolate stop at the quaint and cosy restaurant. The stop for empanadas at the end was pretty good. I went with the traditional one and the egg and olive in it was different! I think the picnic at the reservoir was the best. Our guide and the driver had a cooler full of goodies and juice for those who were not drinking the great Chilean wine. Bravo Simon!
A very nice way to spend a day in Santiago and experience a little of the Andean scenery. The guide Simon was excellent and very helpful. The driver managed the rather windy road very professionally. Scenery is great but would be better with some snow topped mountains! Need to go back in spring. The first coffee stop was a little disappointing so suggest you go for the hot chocolate. Lunch nibbles and wine and the complimentary empanada and beer was a nice surprise. Easy walking. Could be a bitt cool in the mountains.
Highly recommend this tour where you see a beautiful mountain range, glacier, and huge lake. Light hiking to see a lot of the wild life in the area as well. One of the best tours in Chile.
