“While Cajon Del Majpo is scenic, it was overcrowded and not worth an almost 2 hour drive each way which takes up the whole day.”

“The destination was beautiful, the tour got us there before the Sunday crowd and avoided getting stuck in the car mess. The english speaking guide was helpful and friendly. The wine was good, the brunch is more like finger food than a whole meal, but they gave us more food on the way back.
The negative point is that they stopped to a boot hiring shop and advised us that our hiking shoes would not have been good enought, so we hired boots with an extra cost.
However in this season, winter on a sunny day, our hiking boots would have done the job as there was very little mud and snow on the easy trail, and the hired boots where not that great. We trusted our guides and we felt mislead.”
