Sketchy company- unprofessional
I had the hotel call the night before to confirm my tour. The company said all good. It was suppose to be an English speaking guide to Lodge El Morado Spa. The next morning the person that showed up didn't speak English and told my hotel that my tour was cancelled and he wanted to take me somewhere else not even in the brochure!!! This was NOT OKAY AND COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL. I felt unsafe and told the hotel to send him away. I didn't feel comfortable going with an unknown guy who didn't speak English to who knew where. So I had the hotel quickly add my to another tour company.

We regret the inconvenience, there were situations related to the tour that day that prevented its realization. Our solution was to offer another option so you wouldn't miss the day. We still understand your frustration. We will take your opinion into consideration so that this type of situation does not happen again.

Friendly warm people you can't help hug by the end of the day.
Jan. 2020
We decided to take this tour because it sounded better than the others. We were picked up from the hotel, taken to main office. Without wasting much time we set off. Marblis, our guide was extremely well informed about everything we were about to see, and conveyed that information in the best manner. She and Hernan, our driver, brought the group together and by the time we had our picnic lunch we were all friendly. They gave their best to make us enjoy the day and it certainly was a memorable day.
If you are thinking of going to Cajon del Maipo, these are the people to contact. Special thanks to Marblis and Hernan.

Excellent Value - Must See Nature
Jan. 2020
Great value for a full day excursion. Getting outside Santiago into the mountains is definitely worth it. We saw glaciers and reservoirs and had lunch by a waterfall.

Not the Tour we hoped for
Jan. 2020 • Couples
I must firstly say the tour guide was wonderful full of information and lovely which made the tour nice for us. Unfortunately the activities on the tour did not meet our expectations, we paid £75/$99 for two people for the tour expecting to see a lot more of the Andes mountains than we did. The tour started at 8.30am and we made two stops and two random buildings to look at them we then stopped for Breakfast at 10am (not included in the price) , we then stopped at an old train station before reaching the Andes Mountains past 12pm. During this time we spend just over 1 hour in the mountains we stopped at a point to see a small waterfall and the river these were both very disappointing and nothing much to see. The tour then said we would stop for a picnic with picturesque views, there was no scenery to look at we just faced the side of a mountain. Thank goodness for the guide been so lovely and providing lots of information as we felt for the cost the tour was very expensive for what we actually saw. It became apparent that the main attraction at Canjon De Maipo is currently closed and has been closed for 6 months, this is what we had thought we were going to see given the details of the tour provided on Viator. My recommendation would be to go for the more expensive tours as it seems you will spend more of the time in the Andes of this is what you wanted and the ‘cheaper’ tours are more about going to the tourist hotspots outside of the mountains.

Hello, we are very sorry that the landscapes have not met your expectations. There are natural climatic factors that prevented certain points from being seen with the same majesty. thanks for your approaches we will be more clearer in relation to our communication.

Awesome rafting adventure
Dec. 2019 • Couples
Early start out to San Jose for breakfast. Walk around square and saw the old train that went to Argentina.
Picked up for rafting by awesome company. Jorge was an excellent rafter. Whole crew were awesome playing sick beats in the van. Well looked after by the crew. Highly recommended. Lunch was delicious in a local restaurant. Cervezas were cold.

Great experience, we saw a lot of things near San Jose for just one day! The waterfall of Yeso is beautiful, the picnic is delicious, and the guide Monserrat was great and we had good talks!

Despite closings of certain locations (outside their control), they made the best of it. However, the closings were still known in advance and would be better if they make sure it is advertised as such on the tour listing.

Good day but a bit disorganized
May 2019 • Solo
I booked this tour on their website, they were supposed to pick me up at my hotel but they forgot me! They apologized and proposed to postpone the tour, which I accepted.

The tour is quite good though San Jose de Maipo is not really interesting
El Embase del Yeso was wonderful!
The picnic was also very copious.

I would like to thank Claudio our driver, who drove us safely into the mountains and Esteban, our guide, who was wonderful and very friendly

A lovely tour to the Embalse del Yeso and Cajon del Maipo with SkiTotal
May 2019 • Solo
If you want to sit back, relax and let you guide through the surroundings of Santiago, this is a tour for you. Our guide Pablo gave us a lot of information and was eager to chat with us. We had a lovely apero at the Embalse del Yeso. This is the most affordable tour I've seen and the organisation even goes when there's only 1 passenger. The café in the morning and house of chocolate in the afternoon were less interesting for me.

Embalse de Yeso
Dec. 2018 • Friends
We booked the tour the day before as we felt it was a reasonable price for what was on offer. We were also recommended by friends. They picked us up from the hotel around 8am and took us to the offices where we met our tour guide and driver. As English speaking natives we were surprised how well the guide spoke English and his knowledge was impeccable. They took us through the city and explained about the culture and architecture. We stopped at a small rustic cafe/restaurant in the San Josè region for authentic made empanadas which were amazing! We then made our way up to Embalse de Yeso. They drove us up and gave us an hour to walk around and explore then collected us and took us down to the glacier where they had prepared wine cheese and fruit for the group. This was an excellent touch and very much appreciated. We got to drink from the glacier and admire the view with a glass of wine. On the way back to the city we were offered to stop off at the ‘Chocolate House’ for ice cream and a look around before heading back to the city. All in all a great tour for a great price and a very knowledgeable guide. We will be sure to take the tour again in the winter time to see it from a different perspective. Thank you for a lovely day out.
