Responsive, froendly and well organised tour operator
Our whole experience was great. We booked kayak fishing and the crossing from Granizo to Cajón Grande hike with Jose. Jose wrote back to emails quickly and made the whole process seamless. Our driver (Hector) was on time to pick us up both days and spoke very good English. He was also very forgiving that out spanish is not good. When we arrived, we weren't able to kayak as the waves were too high but Jose called and provided different options we could do that day instead. We ended up fishing from the beach, 4wd driving and walking through the sand dunes with Paulo. On our way home Hector took us to a local shop to get the best empanadas in town, Luciana's in Renaca. On our second day we did the hike. Jose talked about all of the local flora, fauna and history of the areas and trail. He was very friendly and a wonderful guide. Thanks to Jose, Hector and Paulo. You all made us feel very welcome and we really enjoyed the experiences.

Great People and Great Adventures
I love Andes trek, especially the people like Fran and Marcos. They were super helpful and personable when it came to traveling around Chile. The excursions included visiting Pablo Neruda's house at Isla Negra, going to an Alpaca farm, and skiing at the world famous Portillo resort in the Andes (to name a few). I would suggest Andes trek to any traveler!!

Summer abroad was fantastic
I wouldn't have wanted to explore Chile with any other group. We got to see some adorable alpacas and see the beauty of Chile. We went to the national park and the Andes mountains. The guides are everything I could have imagined. They made every excursion educational and fun.

Best Way to Experience Chile, Awesome Tour Guides
I couldn't have imagined a better experience. Our group got to see Alpacas, experience the culture of Chiloe, hike through the beautiful La Campana National Park, and ride horses along the beaches and sand dunes. And there was always a delicious meal waiting for us after our adventure. The guides are very kind and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend!!!!

Amazing Trips, Amazing People
I loved every excursion we went on with Andes Trek. The activities and views were amazing, and the guides were helpful and personable, so much so that I feel like they had become good friends with all of us during the trips. I will miss the guides, their stories, and their love for what they do, and I will miss the fun we all had together. If you want a five-star tour of central Chile, Andes Trek is your best bet. If I come back to Chile, I will definitely be contacting them again for tours.
