        Amazing and authentic experience
        Amazing experience and definitely one of the best activities of our trip! The experience is very authentic and you also get a good chance to appreciate the beautiful landscape of the Andes mountains. The horses were calm and easy to ride even for someone with no experience. Our guide Pablo was extremely helpful as was our host Daniel. I would definetely it!

        Perfect day in the mountains
        Great day trip into the mountains from Mendoza. Clear communication prior to the trip, we were pucked up right on time. Our guide Lucas was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We started the hike with another group, but they let the ability of the clients dictate the pace, so we split from them and we're able to hike further/higher. We met back up at the end to enjoy some delicious asado and wine. I would totally recommend this trip if you enjoy time in nature.

        Rustic and pleasant Gaucho experience
        The authenticity of the experience, from driving through the mountains, arriving at the ranch, interacting with the gauchos and animals, was out of this world. The horses were well-trained, and our tour guide, Tim, was knowledgeable and always prioritized our safety. TheAsado was phenomenal. Ascending into the mountains was a heavenly feeling.

        Just excellent and a real adventure!
        Really great service with pick up and return from our hotel. This is a family owned small real working ranch. The owner and his family care for and saddle every horse in preparation for the ride. The horses are well mannered and will follow the guide without problems. Don’t mistake this as a boring trail ride. We are experienced riders and the terrain would be extremely difficult even for experienced riders without well trained horses. The views are absolutely incredible and cannot be accurately captured in photos. This is a real adventure! The BBQ was the best meat we had during our 2 week trip to Argentina and it was cooked on the ground next to an open fire. Don’t be put off by the long drive of 1.5 hours outside the city. It is well worth the drive and very scenic along the way.

        Trek to Confluencia
        I had always wanted to see Aconcagua. Cristina was a superb guide: knowledgeable, informative and a great companion in the mountains for a solo traveller. She set just the right pace for me at my age and we reached Confluencia after 3 hours. At the camp, Cristina pulled out of her rucksack an incredible lunch: boiled eggs, fresh bread, salami, cheese and, can you believe it, an avocado and a cup of tea. Wow! It took 2.5 hours to get back down and we then drove back to Mendoza. The weather was glorious. A wonderful experience and grateful thanks to Cristina for making it so enjoyable.

        Amazing Horseback Tour and Food
        Incredible service and experience! They pick you up from hotel, drive you all the way to base of Andes, and give you breakfast, a horseback tour with incredible views, the best bbq cooked over fire in the mountains and then drive you all the way back to hotel. They are all super nice and went out of there way to accolade us. My wife is gluten free and we stopped at a grocery store to make sure we picked up necessary food. 100% would recommend!

        A must in Mendoza
        The sunset horseback ride with Destino Montana was incredible. It was easy to coordinate, the staff were all friendly and Joaquin shared a lot of knowledge and laughs. I’ve only rode a horse once before and they made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend getting the bbq as well. It was simple ingredients of high quality so tasted amazing. The views were stunning, like nothing I’ve seen and very impressive since we started higher up in the Andes front range. Having a real gaucho on the ride made it extra special. Top travel experience!!!

        Amazing Aconcagua 🤩
        An amazing day from start to finish - I absolutely loved it! A stunning drive through the Mendoza mountains with sightseeing stops along the way, and the highlight hike to view Aconcagua from Laguna Horcones. Lunch at Uspallata was fabulous too. Vanina is the perfect guide - warm, knowledgable and a pleasure to spend the day with. Thank you Destino Montana!

        A great experience
        A wonderful experience! Pablo was an excellent guide! When we needed to adjust the hike for my mother, Pablo very quickly pivoted plans. He also brought extra warm clothes which was great since we weren’t prepared. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Would highly recommend the tour!

        Great hiking experience
        We did the hike and BBQ lunch and had a wonderful time! Pablo was a great guide - could not have asked for anyone better. Pablo accommodated everyone’s needs and went out of his way to help my 72 year old mother. Would highly recommend.

        Wonderful experience
        Under clear skies, we enjoyed the best tour of our three-week Argentina trip. Even as a first-time horseback rider, I had no issues; the horses were well-trained. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, speaking fluent English. Daniel, living the genuine gaucho life, led us into the Andes and prepared an excellent lunch for us. Overall, it was an incredible and memorable day, highly recommend!

        Great day adventure
        This was an amazing experience. From the moment I reached out, the team was attentive and accommodating. I ended up doing the hike solo because my friend got sick. But my guide Fernando was simply wonderful and put me right at ease. He was so friendly and acknowledge about the area, wildlife and nature. The barbecue was delicious and the views … just wow. Definitely a highlight of my trip.

      Absolutely worth it, we loved every second of our hike! We had an amazing time with Vanina as our guide. She was nice, easy to talk to, supportive and very knowledgeable. She accommodated our group's needs without any problems and got us all excited to start planning our next adventure.
      Joaquin was great while booking our reservation, I had a good feeling about the tour from the start.
      This was the best experience we had in our vacation through Argentina!

      This was a perfect day that we will remember forever. Our guide Joaquin was deeply committed to providing the best experience based on what we were looking for. He was knowledgeable, friendly and balanced our desire to do lots of walking with our abilities. He provided a great lunch too. If we could give this more stars we would.

      Had a fantastic day hiking in Cordon del plata with Vanina. We had planned to walk to Confluencia but the park had delayed opening. Joaquin had been great with communication beforehand so we knew that was possible. Was just me and my husband. The hill was amazing, great views. We had planned to walk up 3 peaks but at the top of the 2nd we decided to have a more leisurely lunch and not do number 3. Whilst not a hard hike the 3000+m makes it challenging if not accustomed to the altitude. Lunch was beautifully prepared and we had a lovely lunch in the sunshine whilst a condor circled closely overhead. Vanina was very patient with me practising my Spanish with her. Already thinking about when we can come back and do another trek!

      Had such as great time hiking the Andes with Vanina! The Cordon Del Plata area is breathtaking! This hike was great in that it wasn't a simple car tour with a stop to take photos. This was a real hike where you had to put in some work to attain the awesome views of the nearby peaks (the tallest I've ever seen!). Saw several condors which was really special (largest birds in the world!). This hike was informative and felt personal, given the small group size. Vanina was very knowledgeable of the area as she has spent many years in these mountains. The lunch she packed for us was delicious. Thanks again! Highly recommend.

      Joaquin from Destino Montaña is an awesome guide: super knowledgeable, kind, and patient and a great conversationalist. In three words: re buena onda. The hike is moderately challenging, but I think very accessible for all fitness levels. And the views from the peaks are tremendous. We saw a whole bunch of guanacos and a few condors overhead. The lunch is a great picada and Joaquin is a master of mate. We sipped mate the entire car ride back to the center of Mendoza.

      The hike was perfect. Vanina was a delight of a guide. The drive from Mendoza was gorgeous. The hike was demanding but not difficult or technical. The high altitude (3000m +) meant we had to take it slow. We saw so many animals and the lunch was delicious.

      we had a great Andes day hike with Mati! He kept us at pace and took us a through a lovely valley in Cordon Del Plata, with lovely views at the top. The lunch picnic was substantial at the top! Well worth the $
