Beautiful scenery. Excellent guides who made a complicated itinerary easy. Wish we had figured out in advance to stay the previous night at one of the hotels from which the bus picks up. Having to register in person at the office in the proceeding 48...More

Fantastic guides, unbelievable scenery, and a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience of traveling across the Andes to cross the borders of two spectacular countries. Note that the travel time is quite long for the one-day trip.

The coordination between boats and buses worked flawlessly. Very nice way to cross the Andes and get a wonderful look at the Lake District.

Good way to travel from Argentina to Chile with views. However, it's very much over-priced. The hotel in the middle for lunch is a disaster... one of the worst lunch I had... and the boarder crossing is not easy as well...

Wonderful clear blue lakes, striking volcanoes, and glorious greenery, spoiled only by the terrible service and food at the restaurant on the border at Peulla. Still worth the price, but Cruce Andino really needs to rethink the scheduled stop at Peulla.
