1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were so many highlights but the two most memorable parts of the holiday were climbing the beautiful Villarrica volcano and spending 4 days in the breathtaking wilderness of the Torres del Paine National Park. Everywhere we stayed we wished we had been able to stay longer - it is such as beautiful country. Our favourite accommodation was at Magma Lodge with El Taique a close second.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for changeable weather, especially in Patagonia. Don't worry about taking too many of your own food supplies as the refugios in Torres del Paine give you plenty of food in the packed lunches.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

With regards to the accommodation, these were mainly independent places run by people from the local community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was absolutely first class. The itinerary was very well planned and the communication and personal care shown by our agent, Federica, was fantastic and the fact that we were given a Chilean phone made the situation much easier.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I have been asked this question several times and it is very difficult to answer. Our entire trip was an adventure and each part was unique and had it's positives and negatives. We really liked having the freedom to explore on our own with the comfort of having a safety net. Self guided trips are the way to go. Our agent, Federica, was the absolute best.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Really review your itinerary and make sure everything is outlined. For example, I wanted to visit the coast, but living in a coastal region, it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. Really think about what you would like to see and do in advance.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We had a fabulous experience and I would not hesitate booking a similar trip with Responsible Travel.
