Testimony of Diane Gibson from Australia, October 2017 My time in Chile was amazing thanks to Patricia Garabito Valdes and the great tours she organized for me. I was travelling alone and Patricia took me on tours that where tailor-made for me interests. A city tour of Santiago showing me places of special interest and explaining the history of the city, wonderful trips to Maipo and the Andes Mountains, Cartagena, Valparaiso and much more. The experience of sitting at a table high in the Andes Mountains on a blanket of snow, watching the vast array of colour on the mountains, sipping wine, eating good food and feeling the great energy of the mountains will stay with me for ever. And the sea-side and country-side, as well as the many vineyards, were just as fascinating. I just wish I could have spent more time discovering the areas of Cartagena and Valparaiso and other places that we could not fit into my schedule. But what is the land without its people? Just like Patricia I found the people warm, generous and gracious. Many times I was astounded by the kindness and generosity of complete strangers during the time I spent in Chile. Thanks Patricia for your great tours, knowledge and generosity. You made Chile very special for me.


It was great surprise our arrival to Chile, besides of the amazing landscape and history we were surprised by the kindness of its inhabitants and the excellent service. We were lucky to meet Patricia. Through different tours she made us to discover Chile – that we had always dreamed to visit – . She did tours full of details, through the most beautiful places of this country giving us a lot of knowledgement about history, geography and anecdotic facts with such a presicion that reflects a highly qualified person for this job. Patricia made us to feel as we were with a person we had known for years, doing of our trip a unique experience. We never imagined that we will finish in the middle of Los Andes doing a wine tasting (one of the best we have had) in front of an amazing landscape that we will remember forever. Jorge and Mayra


The tour made by Patricia starts in Santiago, where everybody live a fast life without remember the wonderful things that we have very close to us: Andes Mountains. As we were closer to Cajón del Maipo, we were discovering the simply way of life of its inhabitants – place where they live is just a few minutes driving from Santiago – , the fantastic flora and fauna and the richness and diversity that has our country. After some short photo stop for relevant points in our tour, highlighting the spectacular waterfall that fullfilled us with energies and fosil path (amazing, awakesome), we did the magistral stop, where we tasted Chilean wines and snacks, enjoying being far from the city. We lived a moment of peace and connection with nature, where the power of Los Andes mountains landscape, its colors and the fresh wind ranning around us and gave us back our energies. Cata & Edu
