What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Santiago hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minivan, set out on the journey to Cajón del Maipo, soaking up the scenery as you leave the city behind and climb up into the Andes mountains. Stop along the way for an empanada and to admire the region’s many natural wonders, including waterfalls, glaciers, and snow-covered mountains. Upon arrival at Cajón del Maipo, a dramatic river gorge at the heart of the mountains, your guide takes you to one of the most impressive viewpoints to take in the natural landscapes as you sip Chilean wine and tuck into a picnic. After refreshments, enjoy some free time to explore or take photos before you set out on the return journey. Back in Santiago, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

The guide was very kind and knowledgeable and the van was nice that they transported us in. We were told the night before that the road to Cajon del Maipo was closed, so we were offered Lago Pastillo instead. It was essentially just an expensive taxi ride. Nothing that stood out

Both the driver and the tour guide were amazing, especially the guide which went an extra mile to make sure we could try the vegetarian version of the empanada! Muchas gracias 😊

The tour was very good. The water in the tub was not very warm. We would like that the tour guide was not referring to other nationalities with stereotypes for example "marias" to Mexican women. Tour good, food good, beautiful landscap, Galan Amaro sisters.
