A Recent Review of this tour

The Aconcagua tour is a great day trip from Santiago and totally worth it. One shouldn't believe all those horror stories about the border crossing on the Internet. Leo was a great guide with a deep knowledge of his home. He was open for everything we suggested and made ideal suggestions himself, too.
