Santiago: Cajon del Maipo Small-Group Tour

1. Santiago: Cajon del Maipo Small-Group Tour

Escape the hustle and bustle of Santiago city, and enjoy a day to remember as you embrace the magic of the Andes Mountains on a small-group tour for no more than 16 people. Be picked up at your accommodation and travel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan on a scenic drive to Cajon del Maipo. Once there, connect with nature in a peaceful environment of fresh, clean mountain air. Visit the enchanting village of San José del Maipo to admire the colonial-style architecture, and see the church and main Plaza de Armas, where fans of adventure travel often gather. From there, continue the drive following the Maipo river.  Make your way to discover the amazing lagoon at Embalse El Yeso Dam. Take amazing pictures and a relaxing walk, and savor a delicious picnic with wine or juice. Head back toward Santiago at around 3 PM and get dropped off at your hotel or in the city center at approximately 6 PM. In the winter season from June to September we make a stop at the snowwear rental store before and after the tour depending on the weather condition.

The guide, as she told us she was called “the crazy one”, was an excellent partner, giving information about the history of Chile, as well as answering all the questions asked. Very fun and high spirits. Congratulations on the professional school that kept us company.

A beautiful experience. Starting with the good vibes of Yuri and Carlitos up to the proposal itself. Perhaps it would be good to clarify the issue of the schedule better, since it says 12 hours long but it was less extensive. But only for organization of people.

A very nice experience, the guide Yuri and the driver do it much better, good treatment and they explain everything to you.
