The tour was awesome. Our guide was Venessa, who spoke great English, and had all kinds of interesting information to share along the way and about Chile in general. Our group of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) fit comfortably in the SUV, so it was essentially a private tour. Highly recommended!

Vanessa was very nice and super friendly. She speaks perfect English. What I loved most about the trip was the lunch we had right next to the mountains. To me that was the highlight of the trip. Vanessa was so nice that the other tourist that were with us, wanted to stop to take pictures of a beautiful restaurant we passed on our way up to the mountain, and Vanessa gladly took us there. I highly recommend the company and her for this trip.

Fomos em uma 4x4 com a guia Vanessa. Ela foi muito atenciosa, simpática e nos explicou sobre muitas coisas no caminho até o embalse. Ocorreu tudo muito bem no tour e tivemos um ótimo dia.
