We had a great day with Fefe. He's full of energy and obviously loves what he does and where he does it. We are going on another hike Saturday! If you are in the Mendoza region and want to see the Andes up close and personal, then call Fefe!

This was a fabulous day in the mountains with Fifi! Stunning views, great food and exceptional company. We would recommend this hike to anyone who enjoys being outdoors and wants to have a incredible day outside of the city. It was worth every penny and its a must do with Fifi!

We booked this 2-days trek through our hostel Punto Urbano. We met Fernando and he brought us to the shelter, where we also spent the night. In the afternoon we did our first trek to the Cerro Arenales and back to the shelter, we had a fantastic view! Fernando is a very lively and active person and full of energy,... More

My wife and I spent the better part of a morning and early afternoon trekking with our driver and Fernando (Fefi) in the Andes near Mendoza. Fefi is fun, knowledgeable, and full of energy. Our driver drove us from our hotel and we met Fefi near the trailhead. Fefi came riding down the mountain on his bike, hair blowing in... More

While Im not much of a hiker (but my husband and daughter are), we still had a terrific day with Fernando. He was knowledgeable and knew every inch of our trail and was sure to guide me if he thought an area would be a little difficult. He prepared a great lunch at the top of the mountain. A great...

My husband and I had a rigorous 3 hour hike with guide Fefi uphill and had the wonderful pleasure of breathtaking views of the Andes and a huge lake. Fefi carried the conversational ball during the hike as the thin air limited our capabilities; once at the top, we enjoyed some lunch together and went down a different route with... More

Cavas Wine Lodge hooked us up with Fefe and our three-hour-plus round trip hike was one of the highlights of our week in Argentina. Fefe was friendly, knowledgeable, extremely skilled (He has reached the summit of Aconcagua multiple times), and had a great sense of humor. (He said the trekking poles were "for the pumas.") The hike itself was absolutely... More

We booked a trekking tour to Mount Arenales with Colanguil. Fernando who is a fully licenced guide is very friendly, speaks English and told us a lot about the Andes, Argentinian life and nature. He prepared a fresh and delicious sandwich on the summit and (on our request) even brought us to a local shop where we could buy some... More
