Seb was an absolute star. A wonderful half day trip where nothing was too much of a bother. Couldn't recommend it enough.
Tomás and Nicolas gave us the most amazing trip into the Andes Mountains. Not only were they really friendly, they had so much knowledge and information to share with our family. This is a complete experience that can be enjoyed by all ages as our party ranged 11 to 76 year olds. We were picked up on time from our hotel and whisked away into the mountains where we saw the geological features, Condors circling the skies and the most beautiful wild flowers. The trip ended with a great surprise location for our top quality local wine and cheeses where we had more opportunities to learn about Chile from our amazing guides. I would recommend this experience for anyone who wants to enjoy the Andes with interesting, entertaining and knowledgable guides - this tour has it all.
Nic was a great tour and we really enjoy the Andes.
This excursion with Coigue Expeditions is a wonderful half-day into the foothills of the Andes winding through a beautiful landscape up to the ski resort of Valle Nevado. On arrival there we were greeted with the sight of Condors resting on the rooftops. A small hike to a viewpoint was rewarded with not just stunning glaciated scenery but condors flying gracefully above us and in the valley below. Clearly such viewing is not always guaranteed but it does appear to be a hotspot. On the way back we stopped at another impressive isolated viewpoint for a wine and cheese picnic. With the great food and drink supplied we were watched over by an inquisitive caracara. Our friendly driver and guide Nicolas shared his knowledge and local insights to enhance our experience of this natural environment, stopping frequently for photo opportunities. Usually limited to no more than 6 people this is an excellent personalised, comfortable and enjoyable way to escape from Santiago and see the Andes if your time is more limited.
Guide was very friendly and was a wealth of knowledge - unfortunately due to the weather was unable to see any condors but the views were spectular
The drive to Valle Nevado was incredible. Our driver was also the guide and he knew the area well. He kept the information flowing through those sixty turns to the top. The cheese and wine time was memorable sitting on a rock outcropping watching condors soar above the canyon. Despite the smoke and pollution it was an outstanding trip.
The tour was amazing! We and #39;ve seen beautiful landscape of the snowed capped mountains from the main sky centers, condores flying over and the best part was sitting in the middle of the Andes tasting a delicious wine and cheese. The guide was very knowledgeable and kind, we loved the tour!
Excellent guide. Great scenery.

This was a nice refuge from the hustle bustle of Santiago. Our guide, Camillo, picked us up on time in a truck, which I came to realize was a great choice. We then climbed up the mountain enduring over 70 hairpin turns until arriving at Valle Nevado. The vistas were pretty, but the ski slopes don't begin to compare with the western US ski areas. Then Camillo surprised us with wine and cheese served on the top of the mountain which we had hiked up. He was a real outdoor enthusiast and we felt totally safe and secure with him as our guide. He was eager to teach us about the great outdoors. Great outdoor experience.
Tour sights and guide were terrific. The only reason this is not a 5 star is because the pickup was over an hour late. The guides excuse was reasonable but we lost 1 hour of our vacation through no fault of ours
