Looking for afternoon tour (small group or private) to Petrohue River and Falls area leaving and returning to Puerto Varas
We are thinking of spending 4-5 days hiking and camping in Torres Del Paine this December. I wonder if anyone has done it before? If so, can you let me know if it is possible to camp and do a long hike there in December. I've been doing research and some people suggest to do the "W" route that can take 4-5 days. Has anyone done it before? It would be great if you can share us some tips and advice of camping and hiking there. It seems that its too expensive to hire a tour guide for 4-5 days.
Also it seems that we need to take a boat to glacier if we want to hike there.
If so should we do a long hike to enjoy other parts of the this park first and hire a tour guide for a day to hike on glacier later? or is it possible if we can hire a tour guide on the way.
Thanks so much.

At Av. Vitacura 2929. Santiago, Chile? Price

What is the cheapest option?
I am traveling to Chile for 2 weeks in December. I am working on my itinerary and I need your help. I will be in Chile for 2 weeks.
I really want to do hiking on gracier.
I am flying to Santiego.
Can you suggest me an airline that I can get a cheap ticket from Santiego to where I can do hiking on gracier? Do I need to book a tour to do it or can I do it by myself? If I need to book a tour, can you suggest any tour company?
Also, can you suggest other places I should go in Chile. My company also wants to see the Atacama Desert. Do you have any suggestion of how to get there from Santiego?
Also any suggestion/information would be very helpful because we still donnot know what we should do there.
Thanks so much and I really appreciate your help!!!!

What are the cost for 2 Persons?
I need point to point limo transfer, from the B&B where I'll be staying in Valparaiso to a hotel in Santiago.
Might spend 2 or 3 weeks in Santiago while husband is on business trip, so we will have our two kids with us, 5 and 2 at the time. The plan is I would take the kids around to the zoo, parks, plazas during the day, going on the subway. Just wondering if the subway is safe, as well as the areas around the park, museums for walking, during the day for a woman alone with two kids? We are extremely well traveled and are Latin, so we will blend in. Won't take any flashy jewelry, etc.

Jawn 8, 2013 AM arrival Valparaiso port arrival
jJan 10, 2013 santiago airport in morning departure
Hey, I have 9 days for Santiago- TDP national park- Santiago as my flight is going back on the 9th day. Therefore I need to be in Puerto Natales in the evening of my 8th day (2nd of december). I am planning to start in TDP and then to do half of the circuit (Serron, Perros etc). on my 8th day I would like to go from Grey to Paine Grande in the morning, taking the boat at 12:30 and the bus to puerto Natales in the evening. Is that possible? I read that trekking from Grey to Paine Grande takes four hours. So if I would start early in the morning at around 7 I could be at Paine Grande in time to get the boat. Is that true?
Researching airport transfers for single female traveller arriving in Santiago airport at 11.00pm. Have found Taxi service called 'Go Airport' that seems to be recently new in South America. Has anybody had any experiences with them - can't find any reviews about them

Is there a way to get from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia to San Pedro de Atacama, Chile by bus? What's the best option?
Does anyone have experience traveling from El Calafate to TDP when you are not with a tour group? We thought about renting a car but the fees and bother of it seem too extensive...not to mention leaving it at $130 a day in a parking lot. We are doing the W but are not sure where the buses drop off and then we would need one to take us back to El Calafate at the end of the W. We plan to give ourselves 4 days to do the W and skip Glacier Grey at the end of it if we run out of time. Is the only way out the catamaran? or does a bus pick up from Lodge Grande. We were also hoping to do some kayaking for a few hours at the end of the W (which end?) but I cannot figure out from the websites, which end of the W these companies are located on. Does anyone have information on hopping on buses around TDP, where they run from, and how consistently they run?
What are thoughts on spending some time doing a kayaking trip in TDP after the W versus heading up to El Chalten and doing more hiking, biking, and horseback riding? We like all these things equally and have to fly out of El Calafate so the trek up to El Chalten would not be too far out of the way.
Thanks! I feel lost in the Patagonia wilderness already!
How to get Manoir Atkinson hotel from the buses station? it is far to the funicular? Many thanks for any advice!!!

Does anyone know of a good reliable tour guide for Arica? Also what is the best way to get to The main shopping street 21 de Mayo and Handicraft markets?

Do any of you know a good guide in Santiago or Valparaiso? All this is still tentative and may not even happen, but I am helping plan a South American cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires for a group of senior citizens next February. We would need a guide for a day in Santiago, a day--or partial day--in Valparaiso and possibly transportation from a Santiago hotel to the port in Valparaiso. I don't have a feel for the number of passengers yet--probably between 4 and a dozen..
NOTE: I do know about the bus from the airport to the port, but It would be like herding cats to get them all on it.
Are there any good hotels in Valparaiso? I was considering spending a night there, but most of the hotels seem to be small and lack elevators. That would work fine for me, but not for some of our group.
We (2) will need transport from our 1/18/14 disembarkation Princess cruise port to our Santiago hotel. What are the options/costs/lengths of tours as we will have our luggage with us? We would like to see some major sites in both cities. Thank you - Pat
What's the situation like for health care?
I`m leaving with my wife for TDP mid October this year and to make the most of our trip we would like to add in a day of ice hiking after completing the W-circuit from Chileno to Grey. It would imply though that we need to be able to get from Refugio Grey to Punta Arenas in one full day as our plane leaves the next morning at 06h40.
Anyone knows if that is possible at all? Assuming website info is accurate (Pacheco) there are buses leaving for Punta Arenas from Puerto Natales until 19h30 in the evening but I`m not sure we can get there in time.
Thanks a lot!
