We can't recommend Javier highly enough. He has a passion for the mountains and is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide who made our trip memorable. Miguel and I especially enjoyed discussing the geology, flora and fauna of the area with him. In all my years of travel, he's the best guide I've come across. If you're thinking of booking with Javier then please do it. Your trip will be so much better with his expertise. Tif and Miguel

Javier hands down was the most incredible guide I've ever had. Javier was not only one of the most genuinely good-hearted people I've ever met, he was also the most informative guide that I've ever come across. He knew every detail about the trail when it came to wildlife, cultural history, rock formations, geological history, you name it he knew it in detail and loved sharing that knowledge with you. Javier will be my life-long friend, thanks for the incredible experience and can't wait to meet up again!

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.
