What people are saying about San José de Maipo

Absolutely loved the experience! Pick-up and drop-off were quite prompt. Our guide Alexis was super friendly and told us historical and geographical facts about the Cajón :) He took the time to narrate in English, Spanish and Portuguese. It was a lovely trip and I'd love to go with them to other places in Santiago soon!

The Cajón del Maipo tour was excellent. Tour guide Gabriel was so energetic and provided great information about the area and the history. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent experience! Gorgeous scenery on a gorgeous day! Alejandro (and Francisco behind the wheel) were great — very knowledgeable and personable!
