‘The trip was amazing, I really loved it. The service with all things prepaid was really great and there were no problems at all 100% perfect.’

What was the highlight of your trip?

I think I really liked the French Valley best but it´s so difficult to answer because I think every place was unique in its way

Did you manage to visit anywhere else in Chile or Argentina on your trip?

Yes I had the opportunity to visit Santiago, Ushuaia and Buenos Aires as well.

How well did Swoop Patagonia do helping you plan your holiday, and finding the best trip or operator for you?

Very well, everything was smooth from start to end.

How was the operator we put you in touch with in Torres del Paine?

Really great nothing to complain about

Was there anything that you wish had happened differently/or not happened at all 

Nothing.

Do you have any tips for other people who are planning a trip?

If you’re planning to hike the W Independently then be prepared with good gear.

I also strongly recommend Swoop’s service to pre-book all of the refugios inclusive of food because then you can have a lighter backpack and have more time to relax and enjoy the environment in a good way.
