A truly fantastic tour. Jaime was our guide and was incredibly friendly and welcoming. This is by far the best tour your can do of Maipo hot springs - with a lovely breakfast, and barbecue lunch at El Morado. The barbecue lunch really brought everyone together in the group, and we left with many more friends than we started the day with! A truly memorable and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!

Yamin was a fantastic guide. There were a decent amount of stops so it never felt like we were in the van too long. The views were spectacular, and we had enough time to explore each stop. Make sure that you bring layers— during different parts of the day, I had on just a T-shirt, a hoodie and jacket, or just a light jacket.

The trip was awesome! The tour guide was very helpful and welcoming. I was the only person who didn’t speak spanish on a trip and both the guide and the trip-mates did an awesome job in making me feel welcome and excited!

Guide was great and spoke great English, the day was well planned out and worth the money. Glad I done the tour instead of doing this trip by bus myself

Incredible experience The place is beautiful, it is worth visiting at any time of the year Recommended, the guide Gonzalo made it very pleasant
