Todas las Agencias parten desde Santiago. Unas desde el Centro, otras desde el lado Oriente, otras desde La Florida y todas más o menos cobran lo mismo. El precio varia porque unas te ofrecen un cocktail y degustación de quesos y frutos secos y otras simplemente el traslado. Igual allá venden cosas. Nada especial, pero suficiente para pasar el rato. Además, todas hacen una parada en la Plaza de San José de Maipo y te permiten tomar café, ir al baño o comprar algo para llevar.
