Excellent day trip that did all it promised. Stop at winery had 3 tastings with nut snacks. Stop at ski resort gave time for lunch and walk to lake. Stop for photo at 29-curve road. Great guide benjamin and driver gabriel with group of 13. Highly recommended.

Our guide Michelle and driver Jimmy were really great! Michelle is from the US so she speaks perfect English. Wear hiking boots!!! I had no idea there was a short uphill hike at the winery and did not wear proper footwear. The tour itinerary should be completely reversed. The mountain stop should be first, followed by the wine visit. 2 reasons: the road leading up the mountain is extremely curvy, I did not feel well after drinking wine. The second is that there is no bathroom stop for 2.5 hours from the mountain to the city, me and another traveler felt like our bladders were going to burst!

Muy buena experiencia, Julio muy amable con las explicaciones. El tour empezó un viñedo con degustación de vinos, luego conocimos algunos llamas y otros animales. Después probamos la empanada de Pino, la cual estuvo muy buena. Visitamos la frontera de Chile y finalmente la impresionante laguna del Inca. Un tour muy buen creado y un hermoso lugar Chile.
