Beautiful tour. Hector was amazing and was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the picnic spread they provided while we were at the lagoon. We would recommend this to our friends.

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!

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.

This excursion was everything we wanted it to be. We had a great time and our guide and driver were awesome. The drive up to the reservoir was interesting, and the scenery was beautiful. The picnic at the reservoir was the icing on the cake. I definitely recommend this tour.
