A Recent Review of this tour

We are so happy we chose Tours By Locals, especially Javier as our guide. He not only spoke perfect English, he was so incredibly knowledgeable about all things Chilean - a walking encyclopedia! He met us in advance to discuss the food, gear, checked our fitness levels and spoke at great length about the terrain for the hike. He also helped to arrange transportation! I would 100% recommend Javier - a 5-Star rating isn't enough! Richard, Lisa, Taylor & Kendall, Austin TX.
