Thanks for a great Chilean hiking trip. We enjoyed every minute of it. David was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we hiked, always organized, and took us through all that the volcanoes had to offer……Wind, rain, snow, sun, and some amazing views. A big thank you to Eduardo our driver for safely getting us to and from all our hikes. It was an excellent few days of hikes, delicious food, beautiful accommodations and fun with David and Eduardo.

Great trip. David did a great job guiding us and Eduardo was a very good driver. Really interesting hikes, very good food and lodging. Would definitely do again.
We had a great trip! Maria Paz, Baudio, Igor and Bernardo took care of us and made sure that everything was well taken care of. They are an expert team. We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use Amity again.

I worked with Angela from Amity organizing travel before and after my Trek cyling in the lake district. I had a fantastic time at Las Majadas which Angela recommended. The trip from pick up at airport, hotel food and excursions was seamless. The Tierra Patagonia was fantastic as well. Amazing location, excursions food and drink. Angela made herself availble to answer any questions i had and checked on me during my stay to make sure things were going well. I highly recommend working with Amity. BTW they were also logistics team on the Trek trip, they were fantastic.
