Most Memorable Guides!
I have done a lot of tours in my life, Mauricio and Manja from Chile Outdoor - Discovering Patagonia are by far the most impactful tour guides I have ever met! They are knowledgeable, fun, genuinely cared about my experience as a visitor and made an experience for me that I will never forget. In fact, I feel like I can write a book about it! They have a love for Patagonia that is contagious. Obviously the views in Patagonia are breathtaking so no matter what, this is a must see place. However, if you're lucky enough to see it with Manja and Mauricio you certainly will not be disappointed! Thanks Mauro for giving me some lasting memories and of course for your recommendation for the best fries I have ever had 😉
Bellissima organizzazione e fantastici staff, cose belle da vedere ed il tutto con molta gentilezza e professionalita'.
Increíble experiencia en Torres del Paine
Jamás olvidaré mi estancia en Puerto Natalés y más concretamente en Torres del Paine, una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida, llena de naturaleza y grandiosidad. Agradecer a esta pareja el estupendo tiempo que compartieron conmigo enseñándome Torres del Paine, no sólo fueron unos guías excelentes si no además una compañía amena y muy divertida. Gracias por hacerme llegar al campamento 1 entera!
“He who does not know the Chilean forests, does not know the planet.” -Pablo Neruda
From the timber on Mauricio and Manja's voice answering to all mi questions over the phone, till the moment I was dropped back at the entrance of my hotel the experience with Chile Outdoor was perfect. I was traveling alone and I wanted to tailor everything to my hearts desire, I was lucky for they made it happen. The stars aligned for me on this occasion and if you know traveling, it is not always the case. Mauricios guidance around the park was knowledgeable and best of all passionate! while its hard not to feel deeply moved by the beauty of this environment, his love for it was palpable and contagious. Chile Outdoor were reliable, punctual, caring and fun! I would recommend their services to anyone. I feel I came by as a client and left as a friend! Hasta pronto Mauricio, Manja y Antonio!!!
Desde os emails trocados e os tours tudo perfeito. A Manja sempre atenciosa e prontamente respondia aos emails, sugerindo ou sanando dúvidas. Fizemos o full day activo Torres del Paine e o Vale do Francês com o Maurício, que sempre estava explicando alguma coisa sobre a Patagônia; nos levava aos melhores pontos para fotografia e nunca nos apressou. Fizemos os passeios no nosso ritmo, sem correria. Experiências incríveis, seja no mirante dos " cuernos " seja à beira do Lago Grey para sentir o vento. O transfer para Punta Arenas, foi excelente; o Sr.Rene é um excelente motorista. São pontuais e o box Lunch é muito bom ( com direito à alfajor ).
Paradies auf Erden - perfekte Organisation
Ich plante mit Chile Outdoor unser Programm zum Torres del Paine National Park , von Anfang an entstand ein Super netter und schneller Kontakt, hilfreich und Perfekt auf unsere Wünsche abgestimmt und durchorganisiert. Es war einfach herrlich!! Wir buchten den Full Day Aktiv - was eine super Kombination aus Full Day und Trekking ist - für jeden zu empfehlen der nicht nur gern im Bus sitzt! Die Laguna Verde - Trekking und eine Gletscher Tour zum Grey per Boot. Eine perfekte Mischung aus Natur pur Patagonien und Sightseeing, abseits von den Touristen-Wanderwegen. Es entstand eine offene und familiäre Stimmung, die diese ohnehin schon tolle Erfahrung noch intensiver wirken lies. Von daher: Definitiv empfehlenswert!
Trekking valle Francés
Realizamos la excursión de trekking de día completo al valle Francés en grupo familiar. Realmente algo de otro planeta!! El lugar es divino y Mauricio fue un guía excelente que nos acompañó en todo momento y nos mostró lugares magníficos. Lo recomiendo una y mil veces. Tengo ganas de volver mañana.
