This was a fantastic day trip. Vanina and Joaquín run their own company and are trained mountain guides. Safety comes first with them, even for inexperienced people, this tour is highly recommended. Vanina planned ahead, managed to adapt the tour to our needs perfectly, in adition to being an extremely knowledgeable guide and a fun person. You cannot go wrong with them, worth every cent.
Marta was a great guide and Cristian a very confident driver on difficult mountain roads. Marta was well prepared, had lots of local knowledge, and organized a great tour. A must take tour from Mendoza. So much to see for nature lovers
a very good day tour, long journey though , but worthed ,they work professional, when they noticed we were not spanish speaker, they solved the problem by finding alternative guide who speak both languages before starting the tour.
The tour absolutely met my expectations. The guide had great knowledge and I was picked up at my hostel on time. The mountains are very impressive.
The Jamil guide is exceptionally kind and competent
