…vehicle had plenty of room to accommodate everyone in comfort. Where we really lucked out was getting Lisette as our guide. She was wonderful. The tour was done at the perfect pace for everyone. We never felt like we were hurried along just to be on schedule. She was so well informed and answered any and all questions. We were also lucky to have perfect weather. For me the two highlights of the tour was our visit to the Third Millenium Cross and the Fuerte Coquimbo (the old fort) which has some of the most stunning views and landscape you’ve ever seen. All of us agreed that this was one of the best tours we had ever taken.
He was gracious, interesting and very amiable and helped me considerably in handling a walking problem. The trip was topped off with a visit to a little local restuarant that we would have never found on our own. Thanks, Jamie
…all the wonderful delights of this beautiful place. We saw markets,penguins,beaches, rivers,wildlife,National Parks, festival with dancing and even a rodeo. Jaime really showed us a great experience and very pleased we booked him as our guide. The van was comfortable and modern. We were a group of eight friends from Sydney Australia.
Good Morning Jaime, We were more than happy to give a good review of our day with you in Puerto Montt…
…area to the Newlands. We hope they book with you and experience a great day as we did. Our photos of that day are some of the best on our trip. Feel free to give our names to anyone for recommendation. The Newlands contacted us by email and we replied that way but also giving our phone and street address. They live only three blocks away! We offered to meet with them or talk on phone, etc. but guess our glowing review of you via email was enough!! Glad to be of any assistance Best Wishes, Lenore and Evan Lancaster PS: None of my friends believe that you and I saw puffs of smoke from that volcano! I know we did.
…through PatagoniaShoreX. Jamie was very helpful and his speed at answering emails was astounding. Several times I sent an email in the evening expecting to have an answer the next morning due to the time difference but, would get a response that night. Most all our tours were excellent. We did have a small issue in Buenos Aires with a pick-up for a Tango Dinner show but, Jamie has generously refunded the entire cost of this tour even though we got to the show and dinner. He is a real pleasure to work with and I would definitely use him again if we are in the areas where he has tours. I will also recommend him to anyone traveling to South America. I love the fact that he guarantees 100% refund if the ship does not make it to the port. Many companies do not have this same guarantee. Most of our tours were for 4 people and we paid about the same as what the cruise ship was charging except thier tours were in buses with 40 plus people. It was so much more enjoyable with 4 people. Thanks again Jamie, you helped make our time in South America very memorable!
…of Shorex so I emailed them to get a list of their tours and the costs. Jaime, the owner, was very responsive to my initial inquiry and my numerous questions in subsequent emails. We booked tours in several of our port stops. Our guides were almost all excellent. One was very good but had a bit of an accent. One of our port stops (Ushuaia) was cancelled due to weather. Jaime immediately refunded our pre-payment for that tour.I would highly recommend Shorex for their responsiveness, the overall quality of their guides, their competitive prices (especially compared to the ships excursions), and the convenience of one stop shopping for excursions in many ports.
…as we would have liked due to our ship schedule, we still got to see everything we wanted plus were able to take a short side trip to another very scenic area. The tour guide was very attentive to our needs and desires. Patagonia Shorex is a first class company.
…We had some issues the first day in Chile but Jaime went far above and beyond during the rest of our trip to provide much more than planned. All of our guides in Peru were prompt, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We planned a fast trip thru Pisco, Lima, Puno, and back to Lima over 3 days which required several transfers/guides. Jaime did a fantastic job selecting and scheduling them. Islas Ballestas, the Nazca Lines, and Lake Titicaca are not to be missed.
…We appreciate all the efforts you have made to fulfill all our requests from the first moment we started our e-mail corresponding plus our long Skype talks, until the end of our trip.Thanks to the program you planned, we were exposed not only to the unique and spectacular nature of Patagonia, but also to the residents and the culinary of this special region. Everything was done at a high level of service, as you promised us, and if any problem came up on our way, it was immediately fixed with a ready smile and in your unique pleasant manner (with a special Hebrew accent.).We will happy that we met you and we will highly recommend you to our friends. We wish you all the best.
…and in close proximity to the cruise ship. The guides were knowledgable and courteous. The vans used were comfortable and the drivers drove well. We particularly enjoyed the excursion to the Tierra del Fuego Park. The guide was a lot of fun and she selected some trails for us to hike in as we requested was a lot of fun and she selected some trails for us to hike in as we requested – a very memorable experience. We were a group of 6 and all of us were very pleased with the tours. Highly recommended.
…finding our guide when we got off the ship. We were asked to get off the ship immediately and he was not there yet. But, when we did connect, we had a great tour of Tierra Del Fuego National Park. It was nice to get to the park before the cruise ship buses. We took the End of the World train which was enjoyable and our guide and driver were there to meet us at the end. Our guide added some extra touches which made our excursion very special. He brought a bottle of Legui, an Argentinian liquor, so we can all taste it and give a toast to being at the End of the World. He also brought an End of the World Flag and took a picture of our group holding the flag. Those were extra special touches that made this tour so special. I would highly recommend using Patagonia Shoreex.
…the first off the ship, and we were. He whisked us to the Falls ahead of all the other tours. The Parque was wonderful, and we were overwhelmed with the beauty of the Falls and surrounding areas. Jaime kept up a good pace, designed to fit our needs. He had a wealth of information. We then went on to visit Puerto Vargas and Puerto Montt. We even stopped for lunch together (our cost) at a lovely private restaurant. Jaime got us back to the port in plenty of time, so we were never nervous. A perfect day!
…This was the first we had ever done a zip line tour. I am 61 and my wife is 57. We don’t let our age stop us from doing exciting things in life. The view was breath taking and the guides were knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour.
…friendly he felt like part of the family, The accomodation in each place was wonderful and so was the food. Everything happened with a minimum of fuss. Overall I would recommend Jaime and Patagonia Shorex to anyone contemplating a trip to South America. It’s a must do.
