He was so kind to all of us and always smiling or laughing. He hiked so effortlessly up the mountain, as we slowly followed him, so that I forgot he was carrying the backpack with our lunch, and all extra/emergency supplies. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to hike up, and then he presented quite the varied and complete lunch at the top. We had a gorgeous sunny day with clear skies to enjoy the magnificent view from the summit. We only took about an hour to come down, and we learned how to take giant steps in the loose rock, and plant our heels, to get down it faster. Absolutely no hesitation recommending Fefi for your hiking adventure near Mendoza!

We had a wonderful trip on horseback into the foothills of the Andes with our guide Fernando . I am no horseman so was a little nervous about riding for the first time in years but I spent the day grinning from ear to ear . After an hour or so we sat with a picnic and a bottle of wine looking out over a fine view . One of the highlights of our trip . Can't thank Fernando enough !

This review is LONG OVERDUE!!! Today was my 4th adventure/expedition with the incredible Fefi, as we summited yet another mountain in the Andes. My husband is an avid mountaineer, and I'm a ballerina. Safety and comfort on any mountain is key for me, and this man is a warrior. He has carried me up mountains when I wasn't feeling my best, tended to me as if I were a family member, and today he offered tremendous support to my husband who tore a muscle half way up the mountain. He has become like family to us, and I could not recommend him more highly. He is a seasoned mountaineer, a kind and compassionate man, and a delight to be around. And, he will get you to the summit and back with a smile on your face. He is incredible and Colanguil deserves to be the first choice for anyone looking for adventure in the Andes.

We have been hiking in the mountains before, but never with a guide, and never in quite as remote a place as Mendoza. Here you need a guide. While parts of the trails are well marked, parts are not. Fernando took us on an amazing adventure that we would not have had if we had been worried about being able to find our way back. His English is near-perfect, and he was able to tell us so much about the mountain, the vegetation and animals, the life of the local people, including his own family, and so much more. Getting to know all of this added so much to the experience! He had with him a backpack that had everything you could possibly need - extra jackets, gloves, water, food, safety and first aid equipment (didn't need it!) He also helped us navigate a few slippery/rocky parts of the trail, steadying us as necessary even while he carried his heavy backpack. After the hike, we went into a hostel at the base of the trail, where he provided lunch - sandwiches, chips, wine and even dessert. (Lunch is normally along the trail, but it was too cold the day we were there in May, which is late fall in Argentina). If you want to go hiking in Mendoza, you need to go with Fernando!

it was a bus ride for approx 12 hours. If we would have known it was a day on a bus we wouldnt have gone, thought it was a hiking adventure. Beautiful nature "from the road" The guide spoke good english and the whole trip was okay, just it wasnt what we expected.
