I was extremely impressed with the Inca tour - Brian and Mauricio really know their stuff and have put a huge amount of work into making the tour interesting and tailored to each individual. It was very interesting, and the views from the fort are excellent. It was great to learn so much about Chile's mining history, as well as its Inca heritage. Booking, paying and transport worked really well. This tour was definitely one of the real highlights of my time in Chile, and I would really recommend it to anyone interested in seeing something a little different.

I was very happy with this tour, especially because I wouldn't have seen these sites at all otherwise. Brian and Mauricio are professional and friendly, and have obviously done a lot of research and work for these tours. I learned some new things and had an excellent time.

Thank you Brian and Mauricio for helping to make our trip around Rancagua a great one!Touring around in the area of Rancagua seems rather difficult and this was a good way of getting it organized. In January 2016, we – Marie, Jaroslav and Jana- took the Full-Day Inca Trail Tour guided by Brian and Mauricio with O'Higgins Tours, and our experience was excellent on all factors. We could say, that O'Higgins Tours is looking to be the best company in turism in Rancagua. On our tour, we went through the Chilean countryside along the area’s very own Inca trail, where you saw the rests roads, temples, and fort of Incas here in the heart of Chile. Amazing views and nature! Pucara La Compania near Rancagua is not Machu Picchu, but was something new for us, because nobody of us knows, that Incas were so far in south. Temple of the Sun in Maipo near Santiago was something from mythology and looks nereby like Cuzco ruins of puma. Tour Two: Rio Cipreses Nature Reserve Trekking Tour On this trek we visited some attractions in the reserve: From the entrance of the reserve, we visited Sendero Las Arpas paths to smelter of their copper mines, beautifull vievpoint with Elephant Rock. The La Guardia viewpoint, with its spectacular view of the Cachapoal valley. The picnic by a nice, cool waterfall and rock pool before continuing on up to a second viewpoint higher up. At the end we visited the nesting ground of the reserve’s famous parrots, who are most active at this time of day. We went back to Rancagua happy, it was great, thank you Brian and Mario.

Our party of three travelled to Chile in November 2015 and was looking for a good vineyard tour outside of Santiago. We did some research and found O'Higgins Tours based out of Rancagua. Brian was very prompt with his responses and we quickly had a date and time picked--O'Higgins was very accommodating to our schedule. Also, Brian gave us a heads up about the commuter trains being temporarily out of service, and gave us an excellent recommendation for getting a bus to Rancagua. Mauricio picked us up at the bus station in Rancagua right on time. The car ride to the Anakena vineyard took about 45 minutes or so, during which time Mauricio gave us a great introduction to the region and its history. His English is excellent. The Anakena vineyard is breathtakingly beautiful. Acres of vineyards under a clear blue sky, with the Andes in the background. The tour guide at Anakena was also very informative and took us through the whole process from grape to bottle. The tour was capped off with a tasting at their magnificent bar. Their carmenère (varietal which is Chile's specialty) was fantastic. All of us--we three, Mauricio, and the Anakena tour guide (whose name escapes me)--had a great chat during the tasting. Afterwards, Mauricio drove us back to the bus station to complete the tour. I had the sense that it's a little off the beaten path, but in my experience this is usually where you find the most memorable travel moments. And O'Higgins Tours certainly impressed with their knowledgeable personnel and courteous service. I'd recommend these folks in a heartbeat; if ever I find myself in Chile again, I'd definitely do another of their tours. Thank you to Brian and Mauricio for helping to make our trip to Chile a great one!

I had a great time in two tours made with these guys. They were super punctual, cordial and all ran smoothly. They tailored the tours to fit our needs and we enjoyed it a lot. Very recommendable. Touring around in the area of Rancagua seems rather difficult and this was a good way of getting it organized. Amazing views and nature!
