I absolutely loved this trip for several reasons: The view was awesome, the crew was so helpful and knowledgeable, and you will meet other adventurous people on this trip. Our guides provided us with hiking supplies, food, and transportation and they pointed out many of the local landmarks on the way to San Jose. When I went up in early spring, there was still plenty of snow and we saw some of the local wildlife such as birds and lizards. We ended our journey with a nice taste of Chilean culinary favorites. This is a great way to see the natural beauty of Chile!

This tour was exactly what I wanted it to be! The tour guide was super informative and knew the answers to all the questions asked, regardless of topic - cultural, botanical, geological, political. He was very friendly and I felt like he really cared about the guests.
The hike was moderately difficulty. I would not recommend it for people with very bad knees, or for children under 8.

I really enjoyed our snow hike! Our guide Andres arrived right on time to pick us up and was fantastic throughout the tour. The lunch was a lot more than I expected!!!
All equipment was supplied even gloves for those who forgot to bring a pair.

Excelente excursión, paisajes hermosos, la caminata por la nieve con raquetas toda una nueva experiencia, luego el almuerzo en el valle nevado a pies del volcán, rodeado de montañas nevadas. Los guías muy atentos, cordiales, simpáticos y amenos. Simplemente excelente.

Great day. Our guide, Josefa, was fantastic. The views while driving are beautiful, and downright stunning once you reach the valley. The short hike to the waterfall was a nice warm-up. The provided boxed lunch was more than I expected. Overall, an excellent experience. one note: our driver admitted to us he'd been up all night working another job and had gotten no sleep. this didn't thrill me. I'd also just rather not have known.

This tour was amazing! Missed originally date because my clock didn't pick up on the time change so they were able to do the tour for me the next day. Excellent guide! Hike was long but worth it. If u don't like hiking this isn't for u but if u like hiking as I do then you will love it.

This was a good trip. I went on a cloudy January day, which was good walking weather. I was a little worried about how strenuous a hike it would be, having not done much more adventurous than walks in the national parks in Britain. However, it was fine: about 45 minutes each way, and nothing more challenging than the hills back home. Do bring walking boots, sunscreen and a hat, and multiple layers of clothing. I've dropped one star as there was no waterfall visit.

I booked this trip a while ago as I had a spare day in Santiago. Amazing scenery. We were a group of 10 hikers - 8 Spanish speaking and 2 English. Our guides, Gonzalo and Diego were excellent it was actually Diego's first day, making sure everyone had all the information they needed and also told us about the areas we went to including the geology and wildlife. We had stops on San Juan de Maipo and also at a waterfall before going on to the volcano. They did deserve a tip at the end but they hopped of the minibus before the hotel drops!
Our driver, Captain Frank was excellent too, felt very safe.
We were supplied with lunch and enough water for the hike with a celebratory glass of wine at the end. It was a great day to end my 2 weeks in Chile.
I would have given it 5 stars but I found communication with the company a bit lacking. I gave them the hotel address where I was staying 3 times and was still getting automated messages asking for the address. I eventually sorted out the pick up time through the Spanish speaking group leader from my previous tour, who very kindly phoned for me. I guess if you are fluent in Spanish no problem!

This was a great trip. The hike is over moderate to difficult terrain what was great for me. The guides were extremely knowlegeable and friendly.

My review is a little bit of a mixed bag. First the good stuff. Our guides were fantastic! I really couldn't have asked for better. They took great care of us and made sure we were safe and had fun. Lunch was very good. Tasty and filling. The mountain is beautiful. What disappointed me was that none of us were really prepared for the experience. Everyone on the tour thought we were going for a moderate hike on the ground, and we were all dressed for that. We actually drove up the mountain, past the snow line, and went on a rather challenging hike up the mountain in snow shoes. I will say that I enjoyed myself, and I think we were all rather proud of our unexpected accomplishment, but we would have been more comfortable with the weather and the difficulty of the hike if we knew ahead of time what we were going to be doing. Bottom line: Great people, great fun, just check to see what the activity actually entails.

A great winter's day out into the Cajon del Maipo with absolutely stunning scenery enroute! We ended up snow-shoeing up the mountain with gear provided by the crew. A day well worth the fresh mountain air!

Although it was a long drive to reach our destination, the outing showed us some interesting sights and some amazing views of the Andes. The walk was short and the track was quite rocky.
