I climbed the volcano with Politur and had a fantastic experience. There were 4 guides for our group of 12 so when people needed to go at different paces it was possible. The fastest pace was still very manageable with a couple of breaks for water, food and rest on the way up. Some of the group opted to turn... More

I took the tour on a really beautiful, sunny day in February, no wind, great views, warm weather. The tour includes the option of taking a lift up the first 400 m of height (has to be paid extra for). We had about 10 people in the group (all much younger than me in my 50s) with five guides. As...

This is a "Must Do' when you visit Pucon! Fantastic white water and amazing class 4-5 Rapids and waterfalls. Our guide Josh expertly guided our boat and helped create an incredible experience on this beautiful river. Politur's boats, gear, facilities and service was first class!

My wife and I hiked with a guide and few other people up Villarrica Volcano. The experience was fantastic. Being from Colorado, my wife and I are fast hikers. The company provided several tour guides. A small group of us were able to spit from the larger group with a fast hiking tour guide. We were able to ascend the... More

I used Politur as my guide to climb Villarrica Volcano. The guides - there were 4 for a group of 12 climbers - are very friendly and do a great job of motivating people. It took about 5 hours to reach the top (the chairlift was broken, which adds an extra hour to the trek) and then an hour going... More

My sister and I did the volcan Villarrica tour and loved it! The price was reasonable, everything was perfectly arranged, the equipment was all in good condition, and best of all was our tour guides! Ricardo and two other guides led our group of 8 and it was windy but beautiful for pictures! The hike itself took about 3.5 hrs... More

We had an amazing private tour to lagos Adinos, these guys were really friendly and told us a lot about of great things about the place. we would definetely recommend this tour and of course these guides from Politur. After the tour they invited us to have a beer at the Politur office. We had a lovely time!

Amazing experience with generally really helpful guides. First time ever attempting something like this ascent through volcanic landscape and snow to the crater of a roughly 2800 metre high volcano but the guides explained things in multiple languages. Saw lava and breath taking landscapes. Was probably not given as much info about what we should bring as we were by... More

I did the Volcan Villarica with Politur. Meeting time was at 6.30 am in their office, and exactly at 6.30 am, one of the guides showed up. We packed our rations and equipments into a bagpack they provided. And although the vehicle couldn't start due to a flat battery, the guides did an excellent job in jump starting the vehicle,...
