Water in the Box Lunch :
Since this season the Water has been removed (juices, etc.) from the Box lunch, the idea is to reduce the use of plastic and the waste in the National Park, since a bottle is not enough to cover one day trekking and we have one of the best and purest waters in the world. We hope to build on this initiative.

The seamless organization was our highlight of traveling with Say Hueque.

We were happy with our experience of booking with Say Hueque. Very happy that all our tickets bus, ferry etc were organised too. It saved us a lot of hassles.
I found Say Hueque through Internet research.

The responsiveness and availability of English speaking people to help book tours made us to choose to travel with you. The seamless organization was our highlight of traveling with Say Hueque.

Our favorite hotel is Torres central Refugio. I would recommend booking Paine Grande Refugio instead of camping for the W trek. We were able to upgrade. But if we hadn’t been able to upgrade we would have left our last day by staying in camps which were nice but definitely not as food as the Refugio.

You could not improve on what we experienced.

We first learned about Say Hueque trough web search and decided to travel with you because of your attention to details.

The efficiency of all the logistics, pick ups, hotels and flights was our highlight of travelling with you.

Our favorite hotel is the Higueras in Valparaiso because of it´s location, food, décor and staff.

The full paine rib trip was the best excursion. Connie, our guide at Las Torres was awesome.

You could not improve on what we experienced. Thank you very much – you and your company provided a really supurb service!

Thank you so much for such wonderful trips!

Hola Sol,

I have found “Say Hueque” via Google search and I chose the Agency because of the great reviews. I travelled two times with “Say Hueque” and my highlights were Torres del Paine in 2013 and in 2017 the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. All hotels were great. I do not really have favorite.

Due to the excursions my favorite one was the one to Torres del Paine for the world class scenery. My absolutely favorite guide was Fernando on Inca Trail. Extremely knowledgeable, great attitude, very helpful and showed personal interest in each traveler.

The only thing is that perhaps we could have been given a choice of less expensive hotels. All the hotels were fantastic, but we do not really require that level of luxury. After hiking 26 miles over difficult terrain and camping out and using pit toilets, even a 3 or 4-star hotel would have felt like 5 stars!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip!
