He met us at the airport in Lima and left us at the cruise port in San Antonio, Chile at the end our tour. Every day was completely organized, each flight was seamless to us, we would arrive at the airport, be given our boarding pass and be led to the front of the line for boarding. The hotels were all perfect in every detail. Our local tour guides were the best we have every had. I am only sorry that we cannot take Jamie with all over the world and use him to take care of all the details. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who is travelling in his part of South America.read less

Five in Peru and two in Chile. The owner of the company travelled with us the whole way and we visited sites and places he had been to before, many of them very unique and suited to our tastes. He used local guides with vast knowledge of their subject matter. He went out of his way to help one of our group who had issues with travel and was very attentive and concerned that we all were healthy and able to see what we wanted to. The places we saw, the people we met and the whole experience was first rate.read less

He is exceptionally efficient, responding to emails promptly and clearly and all the details he outlined plus more were implemented on the day of the tour.
We did a number of tours and without doubt this was the BEST tour we undertook on this trip to South America. Jaime was waiting for us when we disembarked, he had an efficient driver and he gave us a lot of relevant information about the area as well as taking us to fantastic viewing areas before the crowds arrived, interesting walks and a unique local restaurant in a chef's home, among a host of other stops. We had a fabulous day and felt very tired, happy and positive about the Petrohue Falls area when we returned at the pre-determined time to the ship.
Thank you very much Jaime for a wonderful day. You are a superb guide and tour operator.read less

Although I am disabled in a wheelchair and our concerns about such a trip, Jaime made the trip amazing and did everything so that we could see and experience sites and attractions even when they were not accessible to wheelchairs.
Thanks to him, we were able to do things that we thought were impossible, such as the Cartra Austral, marble caves navigation, hanging bridges and tours in various parks.
Jaime is everything you want in a guide. He lives in Patagonia and knows the customs of the place. He is professional, attentive to the wishes of his clients, reliable, manages to surprise with new places, and he does everything possible to make the trip as good as possible.
We will never forget our trip nor our guideread less

In advance of our trip, Jaime was very easy to communicate with and ensured that he put together an itinerary that covered all the places we wanted to visit.
Jaime has tremendous knowledge of the region, its history, its geology, its flora and fauna. More than that he lives in Puerto Varas and knows everything and everyone and so was able to provide plenty of recommendations for where to visit. He has a great sense of humour and we had lots of fun as well as learning lots about the area. Because he is so knowledgeable he arranged our days to take the best advantage of the weather so that we had the most spectacular visits to Osorno, Petrohue Falls and Lago Todos Los Santos.read less

We were picked up in Manta by Maybel and transferred to Guayaquil by bus with interesting commentary and stops along the way.
Maybel then took us to the airport for our flight to Lima.
Jaime was waiting at the airport to escort us on the rest of 3 day journey to Cuzco Sacred valley and Machu Picchu.
At all sites we had a local guide as well with many added stops which made the whole tour very memorable.
I would recommend this company for any adventures you wish to do in South America. Moreread less

He has been doing this for a long time and has so many possibilities of places to go, eat, see that your tour with him will be unlike any other tour you could book.
Jaime made us feel like VIP. He drove us around, stopped off at places normal tours wouldn't go, and even took us to a hidden gem for lunch. This place would not have been found on any tour site or yelp. He also has connections with the cruise terminal and knows how all of the tendering/docking works, so with just a phone call, he knows the up to date info like if the boat boarding is taking longer than planned, so you can enjoy more time sight seeing, instead of waiting in a long line to board the ship.
Seriously, the best tour guide and experience we had in our 3 week tour of South America. I will be booking with him again when we go back. Moreread less

We all were very satisfied.
Our guide was Emi, who out did himself to show us his Buenos Aires. He was excellent, and put much time and effort to get us to see his city as he does. We were a small group of just 7, as Jami put on this van as an extra as his other vans got full. We saw all the main highlights of the town, including a lovely park, the steel flower, the fabulous Ricoleta area and famous cemetery, he explained how the plots were leased, and the symbolism of some of the statues,.Eva Peron is there. We saw the colorful Boca neighborhood, and he told us this is where he grew up. telling us how people shared culture as it truly was a melting pot. he showed some of the poorer areas, and some of the richer areas from the elaborate mansions dotted about on tree lines streets, Palermo area I think, to the modern peurto Madero. high rises with lots of glass and steel.
we had a choice of where we wanted to eat...chose a mall because it was hot and the mall had air conditioning. Someone wanted to see the Mercedes Bentz sculpture and so he took us. We got out in many squares to see important buildings and monuments. The driver did amazingly well in the traffic.. We saw A football (soccer) stadium and images of Messi all over, In fact this overview was so complete we knew just what we wanted to do for the next three days we were there and didn't need to worry about missing anything! highly recommend.read less

When we plan the excursion, Jaime was on top of our plan, his communication gave us confidence to put the deposit and paid full 2 months before the tour starts.the evidence shown that he's honest and trusted.
His team( the tour guide and driver)are well organized and professional,they pick us up and drop us off at the pier on time,we had wonderful time visited the largest Penguin Reserved in South America.( our timing for visit the park wasn't appropriate, we only saw tens or hundred penguins here or there, but they're all so cute).
The reason I reduced a star is because the quality of the lunch bag. after 2+ hours driving at the bumpy and dusty road, we had lunch in the van, the ham & Cheese sandwich really isn't a good lunch at the environment, a Banana or a Apple may be a better idea.
hopefully our concern may bring a better result to other travelers for the future visit.read less

We were hampered by unusually hot temperatures but that is beyond their control and our guide was mindful of seeking out shade wherever possible. If we were by ourselves we might have selected a different mix of how much time but spend in each location, but since we were a group of 14 the tour had to accommodate everyone’s interests. I would definitely use them again should the opportunity arise.read less

Jaime always responded quickly to emails and was easy to communicate with. We were most surprised that Jaime met us as at the port in Buenos Aires as we know he lives in Chile. Our full-day city tour was led by Adriana. She spoke good English and was very mindful of the hot temperatures so she did most of her explanations of sights while sitting in the air-conditioned bus. She also made sure that we made stops to purchase water and use washrooms. The van was comfortable and equipped with both air-conditioning and a microphone. We saw many of the districts of Buenos Aires and visited the major attractions like the Casa Rosada, Metropolitan Cathedral, El Ateneo bookstore, Rose Garden, large mechanical flower, Recoleta Cemetery and La Boca. It was wonderful for us to see many of the sights that we had missed on our previous visit to BA. For lunch, we were dropped off at the beautiful Galeria Pacifico for free time and shopping. At the end of the day, we were dropped off at the cruise port. Thanks for a great day!read less
