Puntos a tomar en cuenta para el tour: 1- En Farellones es donde encuentran las actividades de nieve, subir a Valle Nevado es de miradores y profesionales de ski. Por lo que si se quiere ir principalmente a hacer actividades recomiendo que se bajen en Farellones y no ir hasta Valle Nevado para poder disfrutar más tiempo en el parque. 2- No ir los dias viernes, sábado o domingo porque son los dias en los que se encontrarán más personas en el parque y puede que no alcance el tiempo de hacer todas las actividades por las filas. 3- Tener en cuenta que la entrada al parque no está incluida en el tour

Excellent service since they went to the hotel for us, Mr. Hernan (driver and guide) a very kind and pleasant person, made the trip to the mountain very safe, he also gave us several tips to visit the Farellones park. It is the first time we went up to the snow and it was a very good experience. We recommend the private tour is all more expeditious, especially in high season. All excellent, recommended 100%

It was a wonderful day in the snow!! It snowed the day before so the snow was fresh and fluffy!! Aug 15th is a holiday in Chile so the road up was very busy but the guide gave us more time to make up for the traffic lost time.

Very good service, they were punctual and attentive at all times. We had a small mishap on the way that could have been avoided, however, they were able to correct it correctly.

I loved ! Super friendly! It is a safe tour, the I went gives you a lot of help, he has a lot of patience, I highly recommend it !!!
