Superb tour. The guys were friendly, knowledgeable and clearly committed to their work. They were great with my son (aged 10), and the whole trip was better than we had hoped for. The food/drink was high quality and they knew when to not talk and just let us snooze in the back. Cannot recommend AndoAndes enough. If going to the hot springs, do note that the infrastructure is basic but that this has nothing to do with the guides! It’s an amazing experience and even though we got back to the hotel exhausted, it’s a day we will remember for a long time. You won’t regret booking this tour with these brilliant tour guides.

This trip was the highlight of my travels! Our guide Francisco was amazingly energetic and happy, he was great. The volcano views are stunning and the hot springs were fantastic. The food was surprisingly very good! Even the short hike is pretty challenging, so make sure to wear proper hiking boots. The weather kept changing while we were on the volcano, so make sure to bring a light jacket, a hat and sunscreen. I also recommend bringing tissues and hand sanitizer, you will be going to the bathroom in nature!

Wahnsinn! Diese Tour ist unbeschreiblich und man sollte sie auf jeden Fall machen! Unsere guides waren Carlos und Gonzalo. Es gab spannende Fakten zu allem und nebenbei ist Carlos ein guter Fotograf. Wer Angst hat, weil Chile in letzter Zeit in den Nachrichten war, dem sei gesagt: Wir haben von alldem nichts mitbekommen und nur nette Menschen getroffen. Man kann frühstücken und bekommt zum Mittag Sandwiches und geht noch Tapas essen nach der Tour. Sogar Wasserflaschen waren für alle dabei. Die Tour ist auch für ungeübte Wanderer geeignet, weil es vor allem darum geht die Berge zu genießen. Es war einfach traumhaft
